Not the *best* sushi in NYC, but pretty close (and easier to get a reservation here). I go every few months, and I'm never disappointed.

Great as usual. This sushi restaurant is a hidden gem in NYC. Expensive but just as good as any where else without the hubbub.

I went to have omakase at the sushi bar for the first time while I was visiting NYC. I sat at the sushi bar and received excellent service. Chef Taka was very friendly and informative. He was enthusiastically showing me and telling me about the different fish he was serving me if I was not familiar with it. The presentation of the fish itself was beautiful and prepared carefully. The quality of the fish was very good and I had a great experience for my first time having traditional omakase. My favorite part of the meal was the bonito which has such a deep flavor to it. The uni I was served was from Hokkaido and Maine. The uni were both beautiful in color. He also had uni from Santa Barbara but I did not choose to try this one. I was extremely surprised by the pickled ginger and Anago because I usually dislike both these things. However, the ginger was pickled to be light and refreshing without being overpowering. The anago was very soft and easy to eat. Chef Taka was so kind as to give me a tofu milk dessert that came with a sweet syrup. This experience was definitely one I would recommend to others to try. I especially recommend sitting at the sushi bar and conversing with Chef Taka. The only reason I am not putting 5 stars is because I feel that the quality or the certain preparation for specific types of fish could have been better in comparison to other omakase prices.

Quite good, with impeccable service and lovely ambiance, though it seemed unnecessarily expensive. One of those places that seems expensive for the sake of being expensive. The sushi was no better than many other places that are significantly cheaper. Drastically better places like Yasuda are not much more expensive and service larger nigiri. Enjoyed our dinner and glad we went but probably would not return.

Terrible!!! Food was not worth the money. Sub par service. Plates were either tasteless or too salty. Poor quality truffles with no aroma of truffles. Trying too hard - using too much foam and miso. I would not recommend this place.

We had sushi. Chose the 10 piece. Pretty ordinary. Tuna, salmon, avg stuff.
The uni flight was good.

Everything was good. Just nothing super special. And at this price it should be.

Sushi of Gari is much more inventive at this kind of price.

Restaurant gave us at Sushi counter Bar, in stead of table. Food at Bar counter is much better than table because of its freshness and conversation with sushi chef. Table is still very good, but if have a chance to take a bar counter, it will be excellent.

the tasting menu was "good food and good value". a little disappointed on the service we received - the waitress was somewhat absent minded: we were not even offered a cup of tea. this is a Japanese restaurant, right? towards to the end of our meal, a manager came up and asked, do you care for a cup of tea?

other than that, it was a nice restaurant...

15 East always delivers-one of a handful of the top Japanese restaurants in town (plus a Michelin star). Master sushi Chef/Sushi bar is adjacent to a small chic minimalist dining room that offers a variety of exquisite Japanese culinary offerings among them NYC's best cold soba noodles & homemade tofu.

 (Miami)·Dined on August 12, 2017

I plan on giving this restaurant another shot because I was sitting in the dining room and not the sushi bar. That being said, the omakase was brought out 5 rolls at a time which is not a fun way to enjoy the omakase experience and I had to decide whether or not to dip my rolls in soy sauce and add extra wasabi which sort of goes against the whole "trust the chef" idea. Also, the rolls were very small- abnormally small- so I did not feel like I got my money's worth.
The fish was fresh and the sake selection and service was great. Perhaps their other offerings are larger, but bottom line you are going to have to spend a lot to leave satisfied.

Fish is fresh but nothing special about it. I had omakase and nothing special on the fish. No special sauces or anything to go with the fish. Would not recommend if you want something special. My wife had prefix Lunch with soba noodle and literally only had 5 strands of noodles in it. Not worth the money.
