Absolutely outstanding with food and service. Tomo, the executive sushi chef, is a master. The staff of Ty, Nancy and Andrew are wonderful. The restaurant is literally and figuratively a hidden gem. Well worth the effort and cost. 5 Star

Food was truly excellent, on the level with Nakazawa or Matsuhisa. Sushi and sashimi that make you realize the heights that can be achieved. I found the atmosphere disappointing. My expectation for a small, basement, Japanese restaurant is that it be sort of moody and cool; this place borders on the corporate. There's nothing sexy about it. Service was professional but sort of indifferent. It's pricey. I won't go back. I'd rather spend my money at Nakazawa.

Just about as perfectly executed as possible in that space. I miss their sister restaurant upstairs where it was easier to get in, and the sushi and sashimi remained amazing (and weird non-sushi-eating guests could get noodles or something).

I'm Japanese living in NY. This place is very authentic. You can enjoy beautiful sushi. Waitress wasn't that friendly. It's a bit expensive, but you can't find this kind of food anywhere in NY.

Way overpriced. No sushi rolls. All sashimi at $12-20 per BITE of fish. No joke! I wish I would never have booked at this place. After a $250 bill, we ate at two different pizza places to fill up. We ate nothing all day and what we got here was a huge disappointment

Been before, food at bad, top omakase is worth having. Honestly though there are quite a few places better in NYC at this, some less expensive some more. Rather rushed service, and rather meager amounts.
Yes very high quality, very enjoyable but overpriced versus market.

We came for a vacation in NY. Friend recommended Sushi Azabu and it did not disappoint. It was a tad on the expensive side, which is why I put 4 stars for the value. It's definitely one of those places to save for special occasions, but it was delicious.

This is hands down one of the best sushi places i have been to in the United States. It is very traditional where the chef makes the sushi by hand each time in a tasting menu. I actually was recommended to go to this place from the ambassador of the Dominican Republic and I was not disappointed! I really liked the secret underground entrance.

Food was great and Sushi chef was very nice and kind. But I found the floor service terrible. They (one in particular) did not even offer to grab coats. The server also looked very irritated when I asked for tea instead of water. I did not say anything, but I think my total experience at the restaurant is only 3 starts because of this server and I feel very unfortunate.

It is located in a very hidden place, but the lay out of the restaurant is very designated, staffs are really nice and considerate. Fresh seafood are delivered everyday from japan, the raw material is awesome. At that time only me and my friends over there, we enjoyed a very private and quiet sushi session. Sake is tasty.

Sushi Azabu used to be coupled w/ another upstairs restaurant called Greenwich Grill(?) which appears to have disappeared. The ambience was very special, and I remember coming here with my husband several times over the years. There was a formal dining room upstairs, beautiful elegant hushed with impeccable service, and this was the cool hip sushi joint downstairs. Well, now the downstairs has been revamped to sit more tables and while the bar itself looks as happening as before, there is markedly less to be said about the tables. Close together and the service is strangely timed and rushed.

We had about 4 different 'servers' clearing and 'introducing/serving' us with Omakatsu and although the food was good - the pacing had alot of gaps (related to service all-around). The table next to us seemed to have a similar issue where courses weren't synchronized for the couple. I don't think we'll be dropping another $400 here anytime soon.

Don't want to be a hard grader or mean on giving the stars for the review. For me, it is about 3/5. The ambience and service were great... The food is fresh and good too. It is better than those normal sushi restaurants. However, it doesn't really have the wow factor from the food that make me think is it worth the money though...Maybe it is just me expecting too much... But overall still a very good restaurant to go with friends, for dates or business dinner etc...
