We love this place. Excellent service. Excellent food and reasonable prices. Always a special night out.
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.
Fabulous and would go back for sure. Plan to spend a lot
Amazing sushi, great ambiance, and the waitress and bartender were so kind and accommodating! 10/10 would recommend.
Natsumi Tapas is as interesting and delicious as it sounds. The service is excellent. The food was unique and really fresh. Will definitely return.
Hi there, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and happy to hear that you're planning your return! We are looking forward to it.
Pleasant early dinner spot.
I was expecting a more appealing place, the food was okay and the service was good
We got there at the exact time of our reservation and the place was closed. Our lunch plans were ruined.
Excellent. Seated on time, food tasty, good portions,upscale ambiance.
Our party included a vegan and a vegetarian and there were options for all of us. The special rolls were yummy and we had white tuna roll for the first time. A complementary chocolate fondant was given to the birthday girls. Would happily return on next NYC visit.
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.
Best was Trio Zensai C. Combo. Miso black cod was OK but very small portion. Grilled duo of filer mignon & shrimp were overcooked.
Natsumi has become one of our "places". We eat there at least once a week. Sushi, tapas, apps are always excellent. Fresh and well-prepared. Service is impeccable. Love this place!
Great service and food. Interesting menu.
Mediocre food and experience!
A decent pseudo Japanese restaurant in a city with a number of great authentic ones.
I love the bar tender , she’s great!
Amazing spicy salmon tacos ! Very yummy neighborhood place !

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!
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We're so glad you enjoy both Natsumi and Tapas and we hope to see again at either location!
Food was ok, but service was terrible. In addition to being slow and neglectful, they also brought the wrong items and forgot to bring out orders. Wouldn't go again.
The food was good, but the service was almost nonexistent. The waiter took our order and didn’t return to our table until he brought the bill. He had only one other table.
Friday night & the dining room was busy & noisy. We sat in the bar section which was much quieter. We shared bottle of Dasai gingo sake. Our favorites were tasting tapas trio C-Chicken teriyaki, crispy blue crab dumplings & rock shrimp roll as well as Miso black cod.
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We're glad you enjoyed the trio, and we hope to see you again soon!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Suitable for a quiet lunch as well as dinner. We also find it an excellent place to entertain out-of-town guests.

Wasn’t a (traditional) Japanese restaurant.
More like Chinese takeout in fancy plates...
Some dishes were great, others just ok. Wonderful service.
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.
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We're glad you enjoyed your experience with us, and we hope to see you again soon!
Must got for Happy hour! Yet, Sriracha sauce (or similar) was used for too many tapas, even on raw oyster, that is not good idea..
Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by to dine with us. We're glad you enjoyed Happy Hour, and we hope to see you again soon!
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.
Hello there! Thank you so much for being regulars for so long. We truly appreciate you! We look forward to seeing you soon.
We had a lovely time. Nice restaurant, good food, good service. Slightly expensive.
Hi there! Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time afterwards to write this. We appreciate you, and we hope to see you again soon!
I have been coming here since it opened. Never disappointed. Food is excellent. The ambiance is casual yet
feels more upscale. Everything from sushi to salads to hot food is all perfection!
Hello there! Thanks for taking the time to write this. How wonderful to hear from a regular customer! We are so honored that you have been visiting us since the beginning, and we are glad that we have never disappointed. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Delicious food at a very reasonable price. For tapas, the portions were nicely sized for a group of 4 and all went super quickly. We also very much enjoyed the drinks- creative and yummy!
Hello there, thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are glad your group enjoyed the drinks, and we hope to see you again soon!
We did the happy hour. Really a good value with good food. Solid 4 stars

Just as expected: PERFECT!!!
worst restaurant i've been to ever! the host had dry lips and a bad attitude! I will never go back!!!!!!!!!
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.
