                                          dined here last night 3/26/19 underwhelmed in every way. mostly by the fish, completely by the lack luster presentation. I expect beautiful perfection for a 500.00 dinner. more like a casual sushi spot except for the outrageous pricing. so OVER the omakase hype. This fad can not die soon enough for me.

                                          Food is good and fresh however, it was sad because it had sewage smells. I think they need to contact the property manager to fix the issue...

                                          This may have just been a bad night, but my man and I went there on a Thursday at 9:30pm hoping for a romantic evening: instead we were elbow to elbow with very loud drunk people, on either side, and could barely here ourselves talk. It's definitely a cool kids scene, which we were actually trying to avoid. So that was a bummer. Food was solid, nothing memorable, however. Spend your $400 dollars elsewhere.

                                          2nd time here and enjoyed it. Came here to celebrate my wife's birthday, she enjoyed it as well. I would recommend making a reservation as the place isn't to big.(maybe fits about 20 at most).

                                          When making reservation mentioned it was a birthday dinner. When seated and places the order mentioned it twice. But no accomodation was made for the occassion. No candle nothing. And worst of all our reservation was 8 PM. They txt, emailed, called to confirm. But once we got there we had to wait 30 min for the table.

                                          First time here! Really enjoyed it. Had omakase at the counter. The yuba with uni and caviar was a nice starter. The nigiri was done nicely. Chef was friendly and servers were polite and smiley. Good value and nice neighborhood joint. Very relaxing place and would be back again. Thank you!

                                          Phenomenal, as always. It's not cheap, but for a special occasion you can't go wrong. Outside of Tokyo, some of the very best sushi out there.

                                          Food was amazing!! Unfortunately this was by far the worst service I’ve ever experienced. i.) no towel to start; ii.) made us eat custard with chopsticks not a spoon (didn’t realise until the end of our meal that others got spoons) iii.) gave us soy sauce only after we finished the sashimi; iv.) had to ask for water on numerous occasions; v.) we had to ask for the finger wipes during the sushi course; vi.) after stating we didn’t eat roe to start they served us roe. It literally seemed as if they were punking us! But again the food was amazing.

                                          The food was excellent - the fish was very fresh, simple but complex. I have been to many sushi restaurants, and this was among one of the best sushi dinners that I have ever experienced.

                                          Sushi Azabu has been a mainstay in Tribeca for over 10 years, never ceasing to offer superior quality sushi. The Service and ambiance always exceed expectations. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to enjoy the finest quality sushi of Japan without undertaking the journey.

Service highly attentive But food not compelling enough to return

                                          Lunch good value. Sushi very good. They need to do something about the smell. Assume since it’s down in basement, lacks proper ventilation. That’s the only negative.

                                          Sushi AZABU is on many of the "best sushi in New York" lists (even though it lost its Michelin star in 2017), so we tried it and were very disappointed. We ordered many different kinds of nigiri sushi - all of the "special" fish the server recommended, plus fatty tuna, salmon, and sweet shrimp. The quality of the fish was OK-ish. The sushi rice was extremely vinegary which completely overwhelmed the taste of the fish. The seaweed salad was also doused in vinegar. The best thing we had there was the avocado roll. They have an excellent sake, wine, and beer list. Perhaps the omakase at the bar is different than what we were served, but I'm not tempted to try to book a seat at the bar in order to find out.

                                          Incredible sushi, very traditional style. Unassuming ambience. Id recommend for purists.

                                          Food is excellent, service is good! No service charge! Good value for sushi in NYC, lunch time is half price of dinner, but the sushi set included two piece of toro and one piece of uni! Must try again!

                                          Absolutely amazing in every way. Each member of the restaurant team was kind, knowledgeable and cared about the over all experience of each diner. Further, the atmosphere is friendly and sophisticated. It actually fosters and encourages dialogue between patrons and thus, creates a very accessible and friendly environment which is centered around the total food experience, which is off the charts. When I'm back in NYC, it's the first place I'll go.
