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. We only seat compete parties.

The perfect pre-theater restaurant. Everything was delicious- really the best I’ve had in some time!

The service was absolutely horrible, had to wait for ever to get drinks, and essentially had to threaten to call police for them to give me my credit card back - they were just too busy to process it. Never again.

I have had sushi in many restaurants in the US and around the globe. The taste and presentation are in the top tier of what I had in my life. It was absolutely amazing. I actually moved my flight to a later time so I could go back the next day!

The most crass, confused, uncaring wait staff I have encountered in a long, long time. Pre-theater dining. Almost missed the show start. Brought someone else's table bill right in the middle of our dinner. Totally forgot about an outstanding sushi order. Food was good, not great. Buyer beware

Food was great. Seating is extremely close to adjoining tables. Server was completely disinterested. Waited 10 min after being seated to get any service. They were reasonably busy on a Saturday night. Food did come out relatively quickly and was delicious. Price point is fair.

Great for Theater goers. The sushi is very good and makes for a filling, but light meal pre-theater.

Exceptional quality - very tasty. Just not great service. The server(s) kept switching. One forgot my miso. It was a bit frustrating but the quality of the sushi made up for it.

We arrived At 530 for a 7pm literally around the corner. Waited in reception area 15 before being greeted...one woman was waiting all tables and hosting. We finally sat after 6pm. We had to eventually eat our meal in 15 min. Food was delish and we made play by seat of our pants...plan for extra time if going to performance.

Poor reception upon entering restaurant. Having a reservation appeared to make no difference to host in honoring seating preference. Once finally seated in lounge rest of experience was good. Need better and more customer-friendly host.

Initially, I was not happy with the wait staff, the service was "slow" to take our order. However, due to Covid-19, I and the resulting staffing issues I understand and that the few staff on hand were very busy.
A restaurant of Natsumi's reputation should not be "out" of traditional staples ;
no hamachi comma (yellowtail jaw); no uni, no saba.... The quality was acceptable, nothing to boast about.

Painfully difficult to get service and the waiter wouldn’t even let us order as much food as we wanted to. Left hungry and getting more food elsewhere. Food was way overpriced for the quality or lack there of too.

The restaurant has a Great atmosphere right in the middle of the theater district and, literally, across from the Gershwin theater. My wife and I went there for an anniversary dinner before heading off to see Wicked. Food was good, not overpriced for the city, in my opinion, which was a plus. Best of all, you never know who you'll see there - Bianca Marroquín from Chicago sat right next to us!! We didn't bother her, of course, but it just added 1,000X to the ambiance!

We went here before a show and the staff were pleasant and the indoor ambience is nice. We had requested an outdoor table, but the outside tables were just on the busy sidewalk- noisy and a bit chaotic- so I asked if we could sit inside instead and they accommodated us. The food was good, we had tempura and edamame starters and some sushi rolls. Maybe it was because we weren't very adventurous on the menu, but I would give the food a solid "B" grade. I would go here again if I was looking for a quiet, pleasant atmosphere to get decent sushi.
