KOSAKA is located on a charming Greenwich Village street. KOSAKA brings the serenity and allure of a Tokyo sushi restaurant to Manhattan.
KOSAKA provides a unique combination of extraordinary food and an elegant appearance which fully embodies the Japanese Edomae Style.
As a Michelin star chef for the past ten consecutive years, chef Yoshihiko Kousaka is also a traditionalist in his preparation of sushi. He focuses on the seasonal assortment of exotic fishes flown in daily from Japan and sourced locally and he changes his offerings daily based on what is available at the fish market, both domestically and internationally. KOSAKA offers two omakase options: sushi only and sashimi & sushi.

    I absolutely love this place and may even be obsessed. I swear on everything i stay away from sushi everywhere and anywhere unless i am stepping foot into this establishment. When i go for omasake i am strickly there for the sushi aspect and saki nothing else and i believe that kosaka does just that. Their ambiance, the service, and the food just hits differently. They are probably the best hole in a wall spot you may ever find involving omasake and you may even make the mistake of walking past it and not realize butttttttttt let me tell ya what a loss if you did. Last nights dinner experience was amazing and each time i visit it gets better. I love that they change their dishes and menu options since i tend to be picky and the great thing is that they remember what i don't already like based on my previous visits that they offer other options and recommend things that i would enjoy and they get it right each and every time. I don't like mackerel which they know but when i was told id like this new option they added to their menu i was curious and OMG! last nights spanish mackerel was insane and soo different! I was honestly shocked i liked it soo much. If you havent had their Foie gras please do! it is melt in your mouth delicious and we order at least 2 each time we visit to go with the meal as well as their toro with caviar which is phenomenal and all their uni dishes as well just melt in your mouth. The kosaka team all of them are my fave! They honestly do their jobs so well and educate you each step of the way about all the dishes and where they are from and i absolutely love that (def dont get this at any other omasake spot in nyc that ive been to or know of). They are friendly and personable and make the experience so fun and the best for me is if you get to stick around past 930pm you will see glasses of beer behind eat sushi chef and before they end for the night they will cheers with you and thank you for coming. Love love love this place!

    I have dined here many times and each time more impressed. The quality and impeccable service is truly outstanding. The kindness and attention to every detail, the aesthetics and truly mouth watering morsels of the omakase will send you to heaven. One of the best in NYC, if you love amazing sushi and ambience.

    My father in law and his girlfriends were in town they love sushi but living in Belgium the options aren’t as grand as what NYC offers. We had a GREAT time offering them their first Omakase experience. The food was absolutely stunning, the sake we had was excellent. Why am I not giving a five star overall is very simple when you are misled in giving an over 40% tip when signing your bill it just leaves you with a bitter taste in the mouth. I hope Kosaka will update their service/ gratuity standards by being transparent to their guests no matter if it’s a party of 1 or 4; no matter if they speak an other language then English are tourists or locals.

    I am never disappointed when coming to this hidden gem. Let me start by saying that i do not and have not had any kind of sushi unless i am at this establishment. My last visit was in may (i know long time) and going last night was just the highlight of my month. I am obsessed with this restaurant and cannot stress it enough that you will not have any omasake experience like you will here. I am so so happy that these hard working men are all taking a vacation next week and off to their homeland! They deserve it and will be missed dearly. I cannot wait to see you all again and hear all about the beauty and wonders of Japan. The food was and is always on point, the saki selections are endless but our favorite one (dont know the name) is delicious and crisp and hands down the best to have with the omasake. All together the staff, the food, and the ambiance are phenomenal. Wishing i could add more than 4 photos to my review but the place speaks for itself

    Excellent food, Kousaka chef is a real master. Waitress did not pay much attention to our requests. They forgot to check the delivery of my birthday cake telling me it was not arrived. After a double check, under my pressure they found it in their fridge. In one star Michelin restaurant this must not happening. The customer need only to enjoy the dinner without any side troubles.

    Three of us had 10-course meal for $200 each. We also ordered a half bottle of Rose for $80. Food was fresh and tasty. However we were not impressed by the value. Also toward the end of the meal (at around 90 min mark), they started rushing us. While we were eating, they kept asking if we are done.

    Omakase was not that great. The uni platter we ordered was 2 pieces of uni. Totally over priced. Omakase in other places with that price tag are much better. We sat at a table and they tried to charge us for bar seating. Not acceptable.

    Best sushi and sashimi we ever had! Their Sami by the bottle is wildly overpriced, but the one we selected was admittedly the best we ever had, as well. Service suffered a bit from masks and language pronunciation difficulties by some staff, but overall thoughtful and attentive. The most expensive dinner I’ve ever had in NYC, but ultimately worth the cost.

    My favorite omakase in NYC without question. Fish quality, creativity, care and attention to every detail with respect to both the food and service. Every time I am there I am baffled that they have only secured one Michelin star. I have never wanted for more in any respect from this restaurant. Go, now.

    Best omakase I’ve ever had. Hard to justify the cost in any rational way, but I don’t regret spending the money. Superior atmosphere & ambiance at the counter.
