So disappointed!
This has been my go to place since Monster Sushi closed.
I found the service inattentive, the short rib appetizer dry and over cooked, and the sushi not the freshest.
I will have to find another go to for Japanese

We come to Chelsea Haru pretty often as well as order in from here pretty regularly. The sushi may be a bit more expensive but it is so much fresher and more delicious than any other sushi restaurant in the area. Additionally, the hot entrees are delicious. The lunch bento boxes are an excellent value as well. I highly recommend Haru.

Our food was not very fresh. The wasabi on the side had formed a hard coating from sitting out to long. my shumai felt rubbery and looked as if it were sitting out as well. It was not steamed fresh but appeared to have been Re-steamed. When booking my reservation I indicated the occasion was date night. I had a large bouquet of flowers in my hand and they sat us at a small table in the middle of the crowded room. There were several booths available so we had to ask to be moved. The only reason I didn’t reduce the stars lower is they allowed us to talk 30 min after they closed without interruption.

My daughter was performing at the Joyce Theater.
We first chose Haru for its proximity to the Joyce. As first time diners at Haru , we were more than pleasantly surprised by the delicious fresh food, great service, ambiance, selection of liquor, and the ability to dine with a group of friends comfortably! We have returned to dine there several times since!!!

Consistently good Japanese-inspired food, especially sushi and sashimi. Service is graceful and usually efficient. Sake list is limited in quantity, but features a range of quality (jumai to daiginjo).

Our server Julia was amazing. She had worked at the Gramercy Haru and now is at Chelsea. Starters 2 lobster Taco's , popcorn shrimp and Tuna Tataki were great as usual. 2 Spicy Tuna Rolls, Harumi Tuna, and Sumo was a lot of food, but worth it. The whole dinner for the 4 of us was tremendous! Another great night at Haru Chelsea!! Thanks

Food took way too long to order and to receive. By the time we received our food we were too annoyed to enjoy it. We wanted to order more but did not want to spend the whole night waiting. This was on a weekday. If you have the patience it's fine. But we got very annoyed.

The table wasn't ready when we arrived even though we'd made a reservation for a large group and called in advance to confirm. Then our meals were served at different times, with one of our party not getting his food until everyone else was done.

Have been to this Haru location twice before and this time was the weakest. The service is usually very slow and it takes forever for the dishes to arrive even when it is barely peopled.
I have been to only one other Haru and it is on the Upper West Side and it was only once but somehow the sushi seemed fresher. I doubt I will return to the Chelsea space given the stiff and slow service and the fair quality at more than fair pricing.
