One of the best Japanese Restaurant on the Upper West Side. Their dishes are exceptionally tasty and fresh. The service is always top notch and the atmosphere is great.

The food was awesome. The service was great. Everything came out in good time and the portions were plenty. Good pricing too. Had several rolls and wings for a good price. Would definitely go there again!

We went for NYE dinner, and then to Central Park for fireworks. We ordered the sashimi and filet mignon and it was amazing. Also try the Plum Wine if you like very sweet wine, it was delicious.

We always have a great time at Haru. They treat us well every visit. Order the Lobster Tacos - you will not be sorry. It would be nice if they added a true champagne to the menu as it pairs very well with Sushi. For now, the solid of Prosecco will suffice. Always busy - so make sure you have a reservation.

The food is out out out of this world! Service is anticipatory, friendly and responsive. A totally great experience — except for too-loud, nondescript, old, disco-ish music.

Noisy. We called saying we were slightly late yet they did not hold the reservation (not a major issue, just a "no show" on opentable). Sushi was ok but not memorable.

This is my son’s favorite restaurant. Whenever he’s in town, we go here, especially if it’s a Thursday. Sushi is fresh and delicious and they are always coming up with fun appetizers. Reservation policy is a little unpredictable; don’t be afraid to call if you get shut out of OpenTable or just go because you can often sit at the sushi bar if the tables are full.

A Thursday evening 7pm. Quite active. They were a tad overwhelmed with people versus service but good enough. Outdoor seating was great due to mild and less humidity, otherwise choose indoors because sushi will or may be affected. I tried their Toro and for the price it was good. There are others that are better. Just not as fresh as I expected but good enough. The other sushi was great, Salmon, Unagi, Yellowtail and their house premium rolls. I liked their main cold saki. Service was nice for my table. There were a couple around us were waiting quite awhile for their food. I think it was just understaffed that day both in the kitchen and out.

Reliable, elegant sushi: We've gone to Haru in a number of locations and have always been impressed by the food and the service. This space is a bit cramped (and we mourn the loss of the location near the Joyce Theatre), but it isn't overly loud, and we consistently leave feeling replete and satisfied.

I used the Open Table app- but didn't see that it had booked me for the FOLLOWING day - However - all was not lost - the hostess was very understanding - I guess that happens a lot on that app - and we were seated almost immediately. Our waitress was WONDERFUL - intuitive - the food came on time, she gave those of us who fork our utensils, smirk-free. The food was filling and plentiful and delicious and fresh. Our table was clean - and we actually had room, even though the restaurant was packed.

I went here with my girlfriend on a date and not only was the staff helpful and kind, but the food was rather delicious and a great place to sit and have some good sushi. We happened to go at happy hour and were very pleased with our experience. We will recommend this place to our friends for sure!

Haru has been a favorite place, for my wife and I, for a long time. We are greeted by a friendly face as we enter, and are seated without much waiting, if any. The food is always excellent, as is the service. The location is very good. Only a few blocks away from the 79th Street number 1 train station. We go out of our way to get to Haru, as Harlem does not have a great Japanese restaurant. It is worth it every time. Thank you, Haru Amsterdam!

ordered sashimi platter.

fish was low quality "cuts" of tuna, yellowtail, etc.

Yellowtail was dried out so bad that it looked like jerky.

pieces are so large/thick that they are more appropriate for grilling than sushi. speaks to the low quality. if you want the most fish you can get for 24 dollars you will be pleased. If you want quality look elsewhere.
