The sushi smelled like old fish. After the manager argued with us, he finally agreed to take the rolls off the bill - we didn’t touch them. Of course, he tried to negotiate it. Won’t go back and won’t recommend.

I love sushi so had to try Haru Sushi. The location, staff, ambiance & food were all wonderful. After perusing the menu, I chose the calamari salad & Spicy Titanic Roll - Salmon, avocado and caviar, wrapped around crunchy spicy tuna with a bottle of Asahi beer. Great combination of flavors. Already planning my next reservation to Haru Sushi along with checking out the other 3 locations.

I took two friends from Sicily who wanted to pay the bill, and not one of their credit cards were acceptable at Haru--ones that they have been using throughout their stay in NYC. It put a damper on the experience--seemed to puzzle the staff and not much explanation was forthcoming. The food was excellent. Too loud for me....I would ask for a table that was not in the middle next time, if that's possible. We made a reservation ahead and I wonder if there is a place to request a corner table?

A bit sloppy on the service.
Forgot food items we ordered. Had to ask for soda 3 times.
They did have a busy night though, and our waiter was always smiling so no HUGE problem. Maybe they should invest in a ordering-system w pads? Everything here done manually w pen/paper....

Excellent food!!!

This was a pre-theater dinner for 3. We started at 5:30 pm and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves in Happy Hour. The menu was perfect for a light meal and a drink.
Edamame a little over cooked. Cauliflower fritters delicious. Spicy tuna rolls perfect. Roll with tobiko and wasabi tobiko fantastic. Great way to experience Haru for a modest amount.
Service is wonderful and attentive.

Haru's sushi/sashimi is always excellent. The service was outstanding. Everything came out pretty quickly for a made to order dinner, There are other sushi places on the UWS that are less expensive but most are inconsistent. Haru is worth the slightly more expensive price.

We've been to a few of Haru’s locations, but the Amsterdam location is our favorite. Get a reservation or you will wait to get a table. Do the Lobster Tacos - they are incredible.

If I could change one thing, I would add a real champagne to the menu - along with champagne flutes. For now, the splits of Prosecco will suffice.

Our first time to the Amsterdam location and to our surprise one of our old servers from The Chelsea location was working. Albert Long is fantastic server. Very nice person.We started with the Tuna Tataki and Lobster Tacos 2 both amazing. Crispy Tuna Roll and the Sumo roll are can't miss, just wonderful. Only beer wine and saki at this location so The Della Scala Pinot Grigio and Asahi Black beer made for yet another perfect evening at HARU.
