Can't say enough about the good food, good service and good value. Ya gotta try the firecracker shrimp - the sauce is very pleasing if you like a bit of kick!

Like all NYC outdoor on the avenue scenes, the hustle, the traffic, the plethora of electric and throttle bikes going wherever they like without regard to normal considerate behavior, the ambience is less than perfect. I can't blame Haru for that. I blame the new "order" of me first and only that seems to be overtaking the world. C'mon people - be considerate - we're all here on the planet together and want to survive and be happy.

Haru's menu and people make me happy, (The Nigori Saki helps too.)

Terrible sushi tasted like frozen food.
The edamame was also tasteless, overdone and almost no salt.
The yellowtail sushi could have been made out of plastic.
A complete letdown
Try Momoya just a few feet south. Much better.

This is a nice little place! The only thing that was a little annoying was that they had the windows open, so a lot of bugs were flying into the restaurant, which wasn’t great. I would definitely go back though since the sushi was so good.

The Firecracker Shrimp Tempura appetizer was a fantastic start to a totally delicious meal. The spinach sesame was superb. And the velvety Tuna Tataki with a sliced 1/2 avocado and spicy sweet citrus sauce was dreamy. It's hard to make outdoor dining on the busy Amsterdam Avenue quiet, but the service more than made up for it. Definitely coming back as it is on my way home from work!

Very nice food--really a cut above most other UWS sushi places. Maybe a bit more expensive, but I'd say worth it. Wonderful appetizers, first-rate sushi. Probably my sushi place of choice in my nabe. (Tenzan is good too.)

Haru Sushi is a great place with excellent dishes. Most of the foods there were perfect, but my only complaint would be that some of the foods, like the edamame, didn't seem really fresh and was a little off. I'd definitely recommend Haru Sushi!

It was very nice, except for the music they were playing in the restaurant. It was some kind of fast dancing music, which was a bit strange.

Yesterday we witnessed a terrible attitude towards clients. We ordered the most expensive sashimi and rolls, and, to a terrible shock, were very frightened that fragments of fish bones were found in the rolls. If they had not had time to notice this splinter and feel it in the mouth, the consequences would have been dire. I don’t know how this place can fix this situation, it’s forbidden to play with a person’s life!

As you would expect, the pandemic has changed in door dining experience. The service was very slow, the food was good, but not special, the lobster tacos were very nice to look at, but, bland, the sushi was fresh and very satisfying. The ambience is very non mundane, but, comfortable. Sushi for two with two draft Sapporo beers was $120 (without tip).
