Natsumi Breaks New Ground with Innovative Modern Japanese Cuisine. Barbara Matsumura founder of Haru Restaurants, has teamed up again with Chef Haru Konagaya to create this strikingly original destination. Two separate experiences in two adjacent sites, an elegant restaurant and a trendy Tokyo-chic bar/lounge. Natsumi specializes in modern Japanese cuisine with a touch of Italian ingredients; offering an array of creative dishes such as, sashimi arugula salad, new style yellowtail carpaccio, and lobster green tea ravioli. The innovative menu relies on unique preparations with dynamic flavors. The wine list is international, with white, red, sparkling wines, and champagne by the glass and bottle. The restaurant is divided into distinct dining areas, a cozy space with intimate booths, a sushi bar where diners can watch the chefs compose, and in the front, the windows open to the street. The whole room is infused with a warm golden glow and earth tones.

I had to change the reservation on the day to 15 min later and to add a person- no problem when I called. But I guess they didn't update OpenTable who later said I was a no show.
The sushi was very good, the cocktail choices were great. One guest wasn't a fan of Japanese food but said the chicken she got was very good.

The food selections were great and the sushi was fresh. We also appreciated the bar playing the Academy Awards, made for a fun evening. The only thing we were a bit annoyed with was their happy hour special. On the website it said happy hour from 10pm to close, but when we asked the server about this she she responded with, "I will need to ask my bartender if they want to offer that." We did end up getting it, but the response was a bit annoying considering that was one of the main reasons we went to the restaurant.

Had a 5:45 reservation. Walked in at 5:45. Was told “You have to leave by 7:00. We need the table. “. Needless to say we refused to be rushed and told the hostess this is not acceptable. She sat us after a few minutes. The waiter came to take our food order. We wanted to order drinks first. He took our drink order and then continued to take our food order even though I had a question about the menu and was not ready to order.
Appetizers were delicious. My duck was fatty, served in a thick sauce. Didn’t care for it.
Seating is cramped and rest rooms are located next door.

Sushi was quite good, chicken and shrimp dumplings were amazing but that’s about where it ends. We were sat at the “kiddie section” with 8:30pm reservations - kids kicking our booth for an hour. I get that it was a bit early for NYC but it wasn’t early bird special early. We thought it would get better but around 10:00pm it became obvious that our section was the staging area for the next day’s prep. Folding napkins, talking shop, employees taking advantage of employee discount meals...
The restaurant is attached to a Hilton Garden Inn-like hotel and the bathrooms are located down a set of stairs adjacent to a continental breakfast cafeteria space. If you’re looking for quality sushi at a reasonable price in NYC, this is your place. If you’re looking to be seen or to show off, this is definitely not your place.

We sat in the lounge area and ordered 4 maki rolls, the chicken and shrimp dumplings, and the super white tuna tataki. Everything was delicious. We preferred the lounge atmosphere (especially the music) to that of the restaurant itself.

Terrible welcome service. Upon arrival, host/waiter said, “you have one hour and then we need the table back”. Nice welcome! 👎 The food was not good and the worst part was I got very ill that evening about 5 hours after eating. I would not recommend this restaurant. Overall poor.

Overall it was okay, nothing special. When I read the reviews I expected more but it is what it is. The sushi grade was average and the rolls were common rolls, more veggies in them than sashimi. Just glad I got to spend time with my wife.

Surprisingly large portion size (had the bento box lunch special). Awkward to walk into an empty restaurant and be asked to sit in the lobby of the adjacent building and wait for the other person in my party. In that lobby, there was another woman who was also asked to wait (instead of being escorted to a table). It did get crowded for lunch. Food is better than decent, but you will be rushed out so expect a little less on that front.

We were seeing Wicked and this was right across the street so we said why not. Thank goodness we had reservations. The place was packed. We were starving and ordered our food. For the price we just felt the food was ok. But the ambiance and service was great.
