o ya - NYC Ratings and Reviews
Food are pretty good. More of a contemporary style of Japanese food than the traditional one. Especially because they place some heavy taste sushi before light taste sushi. It was at a good tempo at first but as more customer came in, they slow down their services.
We had very high expectations of this restaurant but sadly we're disappointed. Whilst the food looked impressive on the plate sadly this wasn't reflected in the taste.
Portion sizes were meagre at best compared to other local eateries in the same class.
The meal highlight of our week sadly became the lowlight.
Had the 18 course degustation menu, which sounded like a marathon, but was perfectly pitched, as each course was no more than a mouthful or two. Beautifully preatned food, and every course an explosion f flavour in the mouth. Memorable notes from Burgundian truffles, foie gras, razor clam, sea urchin, smoked eel and wagyu beef. Faultless, and service well-paced. The only slightly jarring note was an extremely loud neighbouring table - not O-Ya's fault at all. Went on my son's recommendation, and it exceeded my expectations.
Came to O Ya for my SO's birthday. I was expecting to spend a solid chunk of change for what's considered some of the best Sushi in NYC and was not disappointed. They offer an 18 and 23 course Omakase, but we opted to order a la carte. We ordered around twelve dishes, all of which are a couple of bites per person (don't worry, we still left full). Our server coursed the food nicely and everything was exquisite except for one "just-average" Sashimi dish. Compared to more traditional establishments, O Ya puts a personal spin on their dishes, creating what I think is a more memorable experience. Highlights include Foie Gras Nigiri, Uni & Striped Jack (Shima-Aji) Sashimi, and a Corn Pudding dessert that shouldn't be missed.
Overall, excellent food and service. I would definitely recommend coming here for special occasions. While the price-point is higher than similarly situated restaurants, it's worth a visit for the unique experience that O Ya has tailored.
O ya is the epitome of everything wrong with fancy restaurants. While the food and service were of a good quality, I simply cannot excuse the outrageous prices charged for the minuscule portions served.
My dad and I both ordered the $185 omakase, an 18 course meal that absolutely and utter fails to justify its asking price. Every one of those 18 items were single pieces or thin slices, be it wagyu or fish. It didn't help that with the exception of the wagyu, otoro, and foie gras, every other item comprised inexpensive ingredients covered in a liberal dollop of foam.
Yet, despite all this, I held out some hope that the final course, the dessert, would impress me in any tangible way. Oh how low my heart sank when I heard those five putrid syllables escape the waitress' lips, "Strawberry sorbet.", followed by the paltry spoonful presented before me. I simply stared in disbelief as that tiny pink oblong sat there, laughing right in my face after having crushed any semblance of hope beneath its unforgiving heel.
Diners, I implore you, do not venture into this establishment unless you are hell-bent on declaring bankruptcy immediately after.
The entrance of the restaurant reminded me of an old Japanese restaurant I visited in Kyoto.. The staff were super friendly and very professional - I arrived 30 minutes early but they still let me sit and wait. We ordered Okii Ringo (24 course) for two of us and they were amazing! Fresh Sushi and their special sauces really go well together.
I love this place. Every single course in the 19-course omakase is amazing. The seafood is fresh, each course has a surprising flavor, and the presentation is beautiful. This is definitely a special occasion or date night spot, considering the price point and dark/quiet ambiance. I've been back twice and plan on going again in the future.
I've read the comments that state the portions are small. The portions are not small, they are tiny. I don't mind paying a premium for premium sushi and I've done it frequently throughout the United States and Japan, but this was just ridiculous. All I could think as I looked at these little pieces of food come to the table was that their rent must be astronomical.
Celebrity filled casual atmosphere with really outstanding Japanese food. Nevertheless, it was overpriced for what it was, with each small course being between $19 and $30 ala carte. The prix fixe is probably the best way to go (which is what I did), but the 18 course is still $1,000 for four people if you drink at all.
