Possibly would recommend as it was very nice before dinner...liked atmosphere. The service was very good and the sushi was pretty good, not the best...sushimi was cut in too large a piece to handle well.
The miso soup was OVER PRICED. The rest were probably NYC prices. It was also so convenient to my
parking and the theatre. So, I was satisfied...therefore, I would recommend for all of the reasons listed above. They have a lovely lounge next to the restaurant that I found appealing. All of the help was super
nice and helpful!
Great food, very busy, service was solid but not five star but would return.
beautiful setting, beautiful food! Natsumi is a gem. The freshest fish, perfectly cooked tempura and thoughtfully presented plates. the Natsumi special roll and the king crab dumplings are must-haves. The chirashi is generous and well composed.
Excellent meal! Service was great and food was incredible.
Great Service! Sushi was outstanding. We arrived after a long broadway show and they were so sweet to serve us and let us enjoy our dinner.
Hi there! We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope you enjoyed the show, and we hope to see you again.
Great sushi place and right across the street from the theater we were going to after dinner. We were pleasantly surprised!!
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to write this. We're glad you enjoyed your meal and we hope to see you again next time you're in the area for a show!
menu overpromises though portions are generous and appropriate. badly designed in a bitsy way and not luxurious sense of place. would not go back
Amazing! Great service, wonderful sushi. Really nice presentation and flavors

Lovely top notch sushi gem in what is typically a crapshoot neighborhood for restaurants. Freshly prepared and imaginative dishes (recommend the chef's choice pre-fixe), alongside excellent service.
Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time out to write this. We're honored that you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to seeing you again - hopefully soon!
It was ok for a pre theatre meal but I wouldn’t otherwise make a point of going there.
Natsumi is a great choice for a business meal. The service was excellent, very attentive and nice. The food was definitely solid, though for the price, I wouldn’t have been super pleased with it if it was on my own dime. But if you are looking for A- sushi with interesting twists and high end non-sushi options then I’d strongly recommend.
Convenient if in theater district. Unpretentious. Bargain prix-fixe lunch ( very good). Service is attentive & efficient.
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We're honored you stopped by for a visit, and we're glad to hear that your lunch was good. We hope to see you again.
El mejor sushi y sashimi a un precio decente
Excellent sushi and a good crowd pre-theatre. Very good service.

Our dinner was great. The appetizers and sushi were phenomenal. I have a gluten sensitivity and do I asked the server for some assistance with choosing rolls that were gluten free and she was not super helpful. The drink I had was outstanding. It was our last night in NYC, and this was a nice meal to end our vacation.
We shared 5 apps and 1 roll and took some food home. Everything was delicious and I look forward to returning.

The food was great - beautifully presented - loved the dinner entrees and the tempura cheesecake!
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time out to write this. We're glad you enjoyed your entrees, and we hope to see you again for more cheesecake!
Went to dinner here before the theatre. The special rolls were amazing! We didn’t like our tuna appetizer- the fish quality was so poor. Maybe it was a bad piece of tuna? Anyways- the waitress didn’t charge us for it and we ended up loving the rolls we got!
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to write this. We're glad you ended up satisfied with your meal, and we hope to see you again - hopefully soon!
Outstanding sushi, a bit pricey but relatively on-par versus those that would be in the same ballpark quality wise. Might be the best overall spot in midtown in this price range.
Hello there! Thank you for taking the time out to write this. We're glad you enjoyed your sushi, and we hope to see you again - hopefully soon!
This restaurant is fantastic and the service excellent. I would definitely come back here again.

Some of the best sushi you can get in NYC - by far better than Nobu........food, drinks and value for money
Hello there, thank you for taking the time out to write this. We're honored that you enjoyed your experience with us, and we hope to see you again soon!
Went after the theatre with a gift card....service.....presentation ......food was very good....a little pricy but you get what you pay for! I would go back again even if we didn’t have a gift card....we liked that it wasn’t full of TOURIST!
Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to visit us and then write this review. We're very glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. We do hope to see you again after your next show!
Rolls are fresh and awesome! Snapper carpaccio was delicious and refreshing. I really don’t like cheesecake but I get the tempura cheesecake every time—it is that good!
Hello there! Thank you for visiting and then taking the time out to write this. We are very honored to hear that you have had wonderful experiences with us, and we look forward to seeing you again for another slice of cheesecake.
Sashimi was trash and delicious. Service was beyond expectations. Great location for theatre goers. Small so make sure you have reservations.
The sushi was delicious.. I’d recommend the spicy salmon crunch roll!
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to write this. We're glad you enjoyed your spicy salmon crunch roll, and we hope to see you again - hopefully soon!
Excellent food, sorry we couldn't stay longer. This is a restaurant that I would recommend and visit next time in New York.
Hi there! We're so glad that you enjoyed your visit. Yes, please visit again next time you are in New York. We will look forward to it!
Thank you delicious food and great service
This is the second time we have enjoyed lunch at Natsumi before theater. Last time, my friend and I both had the bento-style lunch boxes. Artfully presented and delicious! This time, my friend discovered that she has a shellfish allergy right before our visit! We considered cancelling our reservation, but decided there was enough on the menu to satisfy even a non-fish eater. I had the chicken teriyaki box, and my friend had a beautiful salad and a beef appetizer that was served over zucchini and roasted onion. It was a generous portion and delicious - she didn’t even miss the fish! The service was attentive and the food was fresh and nicely presented. Recommend this gem.
Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time out to write this. We appreciate you, and we're glad that our menu was able to accommodate and your friend was still able to dine with us. We hope to see you both again soon!
A regular for me and always, always dependable for a great and speedy meal.
Hi there! We are honored that we're considered a regular for you, and we look forward to seeing you again.
Fish was not fresh and rubbery! And prices so high.
Really disappointing in every way! Horrible cocktails, flavorless food.
One unisex bathroom was a disappointment but overall nice place and good food
Hi! Thank you for stopping by and dining with us. We're happy you enjoyed the food and atmosphere, and we hope to see you again soon!
I will preface this by saying that I had the pulses deal, which apparently is not intended for restaurant seating but instead only works for the bar and the separate lounge area. I was not aware that there was a separate lounge area, so that was kind of weird... otherwise, the lounge area is actually nice, and it looks more cozy than the restaurant side. Host staff and waiters weren’t extremely friendly and gave the feel of a fast food chain restaurant, but in the lounge area they were actually better. They did mess up one of our orders, but fixed it, so it’s all good. The food was really good. We got 4 apps: the gnocchi, 2 maki rolls, white tuna, and shrimp tempura salad. Everything was very tasty. Wine was... wine. Screw top in all of its glory, however considering the good deal with the coupon, I am not going to complain. Overall, I liked the lounge area and the apps. The staff could work on being more courteous toward the customers.
Natsulmi is an excellent spot for pre-theatre dining. Have dined there on four occasions and the food and service have always been excellent. It's tiny and intimate and special.

Hi there! Thank you so much for consistently stopping by with your friends and colleagues. We appreciate you, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
The worst Restaurant week experience.
1. We walked in and the host took us a table which we didn't care for. We asked if we can sit at a certain table and we were seated. Then he came back and said there will be a five people group coming that he needed that table. Then we were moved. The table we wanted to sit was never occupied. The other table he was going to put together was taken by a 3-people group.
2. Food. The presentation was not up to my expectation but ok. I can let that go. But it was TOO SALTY. Our appitizers were too salty. Had to squeese the sauce out of Filet mignon and Fatty tuna. My main course, Grilled Filet Mignon was too chewey that I had to chew for a long time then had to spit it out.
3. Desert. Fried Cheesecake was all batter not cheesecake.
4. Even before we finished our main course, the wait staff came and took the plates. Same for desert. Then brought us the check.
Time spent at the restaurant was 50 minutes from the minute we walked into the restaurant till we got our check paid.
Not worth the time, money and the experience.
Not sure why and HOW this restaurant got 4.5 stars on Opentable.
From the moment we walked in it was clear that management and staff did not value the customer. I was a problem to be managed and not a commodity to be cultivated.
The sweaty and frazzled host and humorless and cold head waiter made me want to turn and walk out. This was not an option as it was my wife’s 50th and that’s why I was willing to pay too much for sushi in one of the sushiest neighborhoods in America.
Not again. No way.
After that nasty treatment they didn’t win any points. Slow and inattentive service prevailed. And they forgot the birthday candle.
And they were never pleasant.
They food was very good.
But if I’m gonna spend money, the service better be as good or better than the food. Life’s too short
Go to Kodama. They are lovely and welcoming and make me feel that I, the customer, come first.
