Oona was an absolute pleasure. She explained every piece and answered all my very annoying questions! A female sushi chef in NYC? And that’s not even what defines her in my opinion. Her food does. Can’t wait to get back. Definitely get that extra piece at the end.

日本のミシュラン店に負けないほどのクオリティ。
それを日本人ではないアメリカ人が作っているから驚いた。
今後のニューヨークの寿司が楽しみだ。

This was our second time. We thought the location was much better but that the amount and explanations of the food was smaller and less special. Still a wonderful and delicious experience.

An absolute blast. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with Chef Tempest and we were blown away by her hospitality and amazing food. We loved everything about our experience and would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!!

Ive never written an openable review despite having many dining experiences around the world at all sorts of restaurants. Sushi by Bae was a horrible value and experience. Purchased a bottle of sake and the waiters were extremely negligent in pouring... and seemed to have consumed a lot of it themselves. They were at the bar next door enjoying themselves when I went to the bathroom (which is shared with the bar next door). Seems cheap but very little food. A much better choice would be something like Okuda's kaiseki.

One of the absolute best sushi experiences I’ve ever had. The menu and fish selection is phenomenal; sake selection is on point and the service exceeds all expectations. Will be coming back ASAP with friends !

I have never eaten sushi prior to my dining experience at Sushi By Bae. To be introduced to sushi by such an elegant Chef is extraordinarily lucky. Fresh, clean, hospitable, friendly, all the elements for a perfect dinner. It was. I am glad to have had the best for my first.

Dining at this intimate corner with Oona Tempest is a delicious experience not to be missed. Her care and love for the art comes across with every piece she serves. The room is comfortable and modern - not your parent's sushi experience. Great cocktails, unusual sake.

One of the best omakase sushi values in the city: $110 for 15 perfectly crafted pieces served at the perfect pace. Menu changes based on the season and market availability. Oona Tempest is a wonder and a perfect host - it feels less like a restaurant and more like you're joining her in her apartment for an intimate dinner party. Just brilliant.

Overpriced. If this was $50 like sushi by bou, we have no complaints (although we think sushi by bou is a lot better). The firmness of the rice was uneven, and I think some fish were left sitting on the cutting board too long. Sea urchin was not good at all...had no taste. Although, I guess the taste was not too bad as compared to other random sushi places but we had higher expectations considering the price.
The chef was wearing a watch and hair band on her wrists, and also her sleeves were not tucked up to her elbow which was all very very disturbing while watching her make our sushi. I have never seen sushi chefs having anything up to the elbow. She was also touching her cell at where she cooked. It was nice she was interacting with customers, but her hand stops when she talks, so it was a lot of waiting....

Nice casual atmosphere that differs from your traditional omakase place. The chef is very friendly and helps make it a really pleasant experience. They seem very proud to be flying their fish from Japan but unfortunately most of their flavors are masked by overly present yuzu or other sauces. Even for the pieces without particular sauce- I did not find the tastes or flavor particularly remarkable, for the price.
