Omakase Room by Tatsu
Quiet, intimate, traditional experience. Incredibly delicious fish.
Amazing sushi, a truly special experience
A pure sushi experience with a talented and hardworking chef. I loved that the restaurant only seats 10 and its minimalist sensibilities don't feel like a "scene." Luckily our fellow diners were quiet so we didn't have to listen to annoying conversations in an intimate setting. You are there only there for the sushi, nothing else. Each piece is thoughtfully sauced and composed so that the diner does not need additional soy sauce or wasabi. Rice is perfectly cooked. I cannot remember the last time that I mackerel so fresh and tender--the piece that was smoked with chicory was revelatory. Service was attentive, with two servers attending to 10 diners.
The sushi was excellent. Omakase portion was good, There were 18 pieces of sushi but you don’t feel too full, it is just right. Chef Tatsuya signature smoke Mackerel was to die for! It is amazing! The only thing is that the place is too quiet. Not much ambience. But the Omakase sushi journey was one of the best I’ve had.
Amazing and well worth it!
My mom and I had an amazing dinner experience here! It was just as good as the first time we came. We loved the scallop, uni, and oyster. Highly recommend!
Exceptional from start to finish. Will be back... compliments to the genius chef.
Everything was fresh! The unfiltered sake was amazing with the meal. Overall great service and experience.
Too good food
The food was excellent, as was the service. But, it was just to much food.
We had our 3 year anniversary here and it was amazing, the restaurant was a bit small and its underground so we nearly missed it haha Overall the omakase course was good, more affordable than other places in the city, this is a good start if you want an intro to omakase!!
Awesome food and experience. Service was so kind and food prep was wonderful to watch.
Best birthday date! We loved it.
Magic in every bite. Quality, ambiance, service, one of the best dining experiences we’ve had.
High end omakase, the food was great, the price is not advertised, probably for good reason. Gratuity is extra.
My son and I tried edomae sushi for the first time at Omakase Room and we’re glad we did. It was a special treat during a family trip to NYC.
Celebrating my partner’s birthday with one of the best meals we have ever had!
Best meal ever
The best omakase experience we have had to date. The fish is fresh and each one is perfectly and uniquely prepared. This is the first time we have been served oyster as sushi and it was incredible. I also thought the progression was perfect. Typically I feel a bit let down at the end but Chef Tatsu finishes with saltwater eel instead of tamago. He also told us how each was prepared and where the fish was sourced from. The service was attentive and well coordinated. Thank you for an amazing meal.
Great value, very accommodating to gluten allergy
Sushi at its best in a very reverent environment and as authentic as it gets for NY. The real deal.
their seating is only an hour and a half long and this was not enough time for us to comfortably finish our meal and then be able to digest for one minute before they come and they asked us to get up. I found it to be quite rude. There was no desserts or even a cup of tea when the meal was finished they were clearing the table right away. I found it to be quite rude. There was no dessert or even a cup of tea and the meal was finished. For the amount of money for the dinner the settings should be at least two hours.
Our fourth or fifth visit since the closing of Soto. The service is great and the sushi outstanding
Impeccable service and outstanding quality omakase sushi, served personally by a sushi master. Beautifully sparse decor and quiet ambiance allow you to appreciate every uniquely delicious piece.
Wow wow wow ! A mix of flavors , quiet an exquisite experience of the senses! Amazing Omakase . Went there for birthday celebration of my boyfriend and the experience and the food were incredible! So so worth it and will go back again for sure.
The fact that it’s intimate quiet and no music allows your senses to be really focused on what you are tasting in the menu without distractions and noise.
We got a signed book by the check at the end of the experience.
A great experience for sushi lovers. Only seats a few (ten?) people per seating. You get to watch each piece prepared. Perfect for foodies.
Utterly divine! A temple. Chef Tatsu is extraordinary. Everything here is perfection. Arigatou gozaimashita.
Amazing food, experience with very hospitable service.
This was my first Omakase and it was amazing. You are attended to from the moment you walk in. Your glass is never empty and the omakase itself was fantastic. Every bite was amazing and I will definitely go back for another memorable special occasion.
Freshest and most traditional sushi omakase. Excellent in every way.
I used to live in NYC and would frequent Omakase Room on a regular basis ever since I discovered it. Now that I live on the other side of the coast, I make it a point to make a reservation here every time I visit NYC. The ambiance reminds me of a fav omakase place in Tokyo, the sushi is top notch and meticulous, and the service impeccable. The staff always remembers us, and seats us right in front of Tatsu. It is always great to watch him do his magic, to take such pride in his sushi and care of his customers. This past visit he even gave us Shinko, a rare fish that's time consuming to prepare, and very delicious. Then we found out he planned it in advance when he saw our reservation! To add to that he gifted us a copy of his book which I'm currently enjoying. We love this little gem of a place and its chef and staff. Very much looking forward to our next visit when we're back in NYC!
Some of the finest sushi in the city, served on a 10 chair counter. Only two seatings, each for 90 minutes. But you won't be disappointed. Shocking impact on the pocketbook, but it is not clear how one assigns a value to some of the best sushi you have had.
What a treat. This place is a truly authentic Japanese style sushi restaurant. The fish/seafood was impeccable and Chef Tatsu was a master. I would absolutely recommend Omakase to anyone who would like to experience a true sushi master chef.
Omakase Room by Tatsu was great. 18 courses, not bad for the price.
Amazing experience! The food that Chef Tatsu prepares is fantastic and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this to any and all sushi-lovers.
Tatsu is a great sushi spot in the city. No frills. Great fish and as close as going to Japan for a sushi meal.
excellent food and service. one of the best shushi places in NYC !!
