This restaurant is a gem right in the Village. It’s all about the quality of the fish. The omakase is superbly put-together by the chef and every bite is memorable. Perfection. I will be back again.

Experience was amazing as it was our first omakase in an authentic Sushiya. Food was great as expected, sushis crafted one by one in front of you as per the tradition. The fish selection is also well done.
However, as it was for a special occasion and acknowledged by the manager during reservation, I would have expected a special attention, even though it would have been a bonus and it is always pleasant to receive, the very least would have been to be served by Chef Sekiguchi himself. Instead, we were served by his sous-chef, not a huge difference though and my respect to him but for this "price/excellence class tag", we also expect a special customer care. I guess the frequent customers were privileged that night making us feel like being put in the background. Also for this price tag, you expect perfection for every piece of sushi, unfortunately, one of the pieces was not perfectly crafted and partially disassembled when picking it up.
In sum, experience there is still outstanding in a sense, you need to make reservation very early to guarantee a seat so you crave for it until the d day, there are only 10 seats so it is very intimate in face of what you are used to, the traditional omakase style is something to do at least once in a lifetime. For this time, I did not felt it worthed every penny but I strongly hope it will next time.

The sushi is extremely well prepared with a varied presentation of items that the chef chooses to showcase. I have eaten here a number of times. Each piece of sushi is individually prepared and always fresh. The omakase menu has always been outstanding. The sake choices are excellent. The chef is personable yet reserved. The staff is friendly and helpful. All in all, this is a place to visit time and time again. You will never be disappointed with the experience.

An incredible experience with a wonderful chef. Had the omakase and then a few pieces after. Favorites were the scallop, ikura, eel, and surprisingly, the egg (thats not part of omakase). The place is very small (about a 10 person bar) and quiet which allows you to interact with the chef a bit more and creates a more peaceful atmosphere to eat in. Feels more like a place where you'd go to experience food vs just a trendy place you go to so you can tell your friends about. Great experience and certainly worth the money. Dont be late by the way. The first pieces are served just a few minutes after the seating time starts.

Sushi was fresh, bursting with flavor, and melted in your mouth. Rice was seasoned well. Service was friendly and attentive. 18 courses for $135 is a very decent price.

Very good quality sushi with good variety of fish. The preparation was simple - very little sauce highlighting the fish itself. Very small place (maybe 8 seats). Could be uncomfortably quiet for some.

Truly an amazing experience. Chef Tatsu notices everything that happens in his restaurant. He noticed that my Mother wasn't fond of a particular fish and made an adjustment on a later roll. He genuinely cares about your experience.

3 services per evening makes the sushi experience a little expéditive and you might feel part of a Toyota motors assembly line at times. The sushi itself is very good and it remains reasonably priced. Would go again.

The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. We enjoyed our meal a lot. The only negative is that you only have 1.5 hours to eat so the prices come in rather quickly and having a nice relaxed conversation in that is not ideal.

This was an amazing experience! I spent a lot of time researching omakase deals in NYC and this did not disappoint. Excellent value! The fish was extremely fresh and Chef Tatsu is very engaging. It's an intimate experience sitting in such a quiet and small setting and the focus is completely on the food. The service was very attentive and we got great sake recommendations. I would highly recommend!

This place might have been my favorite sushi spot in NYC so far. The quality of fish was outstanding and ridiculously fresh! And don't forget the RICE! The consistency of the rice was beautiful and tastey. I wish the service was a little more focused on the enjoyment of the customer. For example, at Yasuda they didn't prepare the next piece of sushi right away. They left you sometime to enjoy the sushi and always asked if you if you wanted to try what was served a second time. I can understand that there is a time limit at these places, but it just felt a little rushed. Only other thing you need to be wary of this place is they have not included the tip in their menu price. I was not aware of this, and maybe I should have been, so it was a little more pricey than what I thought it was going to be. However, it was well money spent, because that rice and just the freshness of the fish was AMAZING! I WOULD GO BACK FOR A SECOND TIME AND RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

With my Japanese partner,. We've been to many sushi bars in the city, including the other high end places. According to her, Tatsu was the most authentic, traditional, real sushi experience like the top places in Tokyo. Though excellent, some of the other short-listed top sushi bars are more fusion than authentic. It's very hard to find the authentic Tokyo experience her in the States. Tatsu is the real deal

A new entrant into the top tier of NYC sushi - exceptional fish, expertly prepared, on top of really great rice. Some of the best chu-toro I've ever eaten, and great scallop and uni. Truly a place showing its Sushi Yasuda heritage

Came here on 2/9/2018 for their 6pm dinner. Arrived about 25minutes early since they have a disclaimer about being late.

Was greeted by the female hostess and was asked to wait at the couch to the right. When it was time to be seated, the hostess asked if we would like to check in our jackets/bags. I thought this was great as I did not want my belongings to hinder my experience. My girlfriend and I were seated and the hostess gave us a menu regarding the dinner. Asked if we had any food allergies, which any place should do. (side note : if you are not sure which sake to order, the hostess is very knowledgeable and helped us choose one) The chef greeted us as well when seated.

Chef Tatsu prepared each piece with skill and precision. As soon as chef Tatsu finished one set of nigiri, he would serve it to us and explain what type of fish it was along with where it was from. The chef is soft spoken, so I was not able to hear him. I would ask him again where and what fish it was. Chef Tatsu was very accommodating when asked questions and very friendly.

Favorites of the omakase :
marinated tuna
seasonal sweet shrimp
spanish mackrel
chu-toro (medium fatty tuna)
o-toro (fatty tuna)
toro hand roll

Will definitely come back to taste each season as the menu changes.

Everything was exceptional. Chef Tatsu was so nice, warm and professional. Unlike other omakase restaurant, the price is reasonable but the value of omakase should be much more than what I paid. If you want to have affordable omakase without any luxurious charges, I highly recommend to visit this restaurant. This restaurant should earn michelin star.

This is my fourth visit to Omakase Room. Enjoyed it every time. The sushi is superb. We were a few minutes late for our 6 pm seating and were a bit rushed at the end to accommodate the 7:30 seating. Other than that small exception, I recommend this place and intend to return in a few months for another round of sushi
