    Love Natsumi. It’s always a lovely experience to dine in the restaurant. Everyone is super pleasant and it’s not too noisy. I order delivery as well. The food is consistent either way.

    The food at this place is really good. The lunch menu is pretty great. Nice Staff, but there is only one person taking orders and the same person bringing the food to the table so they look overwhelmed. I always come back to this place anyways.

    Has more potential than we experienced. The sushi was very good, however the teriyaki chicken and chicken katsu were bland. The service was very slow for an empty restaurant.

    I have been to Natsumi in Midtown many times and this was my first time at Natsumi Tapas. The menu is creative and the staff was very accommodating to our food allergy issues. We ordered a variety of sushi rolls and tapas and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Really pretty restaurant with attentive service. I highly recommend!

    I went to Natsumi with a few of my girlfriends. The waiters were very thoughtful and attentive, letting us take our time but also checking in to see if we needed anything. They did not rush us along. The food was so delicious and it was so nice being able to share plates. Would definitely come back!

    Food was wonderful with a wide variety of options. All were fantastic. We ordered shrimp fettuccini and filet with broccoli. Our server was efficient and professional. He mentioned two large parties were seated and he wanted to get our order in first to avoid a long delay. We were so appreciative.

    We discovered Natsumi a couple of years ago, and although it's not in our neighborhood, we have been regulars ever since. I love the eclectic menu, choice of cocktails and saki. The staff is excellent and also very friendly and welcoming. We've introduced it to several friends, and they all agree, it's an excellent choice.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Natsumi Tapas. The menu is creative and the food was very good. They have some more traditional Japanese (American version) dishes and some that were sort of fusion, plus some Japanese/Italian items, which makes more sense than one might guess. The service was attentive, friendly, and prompt.
