Best sushi in NYC!!
Memorable meal. A quiet, beautiful oasis in Midtown. The decor is beautiful. The waitstaff wears traditional Japanese clothes. The sushi chef was friendly and had master skills. The food was perfection. We each had the 15 pc omakase. Every bite was delicious. We were escorted to the door by the waitstaff and sushi master at the end of the meal. They thanked us for coming. Amazing.
The single best sushi spot in the city. It will be 3 Michelin stars in no time.
Great experience. Amazing sushi. Highly recommend
We love being there. Best sushi I’ve had since Tokyo!
Really great food, presentated in a beautiful way. Honestly though, it is overpriced even for NY standards. Nevertheless it is a great experience and no critical remarks regarding food quality or hospitality, that is awesome.
Excellent food and service. One plate more delicious than the other.
Sushi was good. Shari temperature was great, as well as the gari. Actual "bedside manner" from our chef was not very good, almost pushy in service. Other chefs seemed to be a bit more conversational with their guests. Hostess was a little pushy as well.
Omikaze start at the same time - so quality consistency is great. Uni and shrimp sushi were amazing. Service was great - beginning from tables where we could wait until we could get to the sushi bar. Not cheap, but good value (a lot of sushi) and tip included. Best is the friendly chefs (particularly the head chef) who really makes an effort to engage - the real connection to the great places of Japan. Since there was a bit of construction outside on Fifth Ave - the views were not amazing - would have preferred a bit more traditional decor to make me feel at home. Oh, and very enthusiastic birthday song for a Michelin rest.
We were excited to try and Michelin rated sushi restaurant. However this was not what we expected. The service was very slow and poor. The food was just ok but definitely NOT worth the price. Save your time and money and learn from our mistake.
Everything was wonderful. The food (especially the food), the service (professional yet warm and friendly), and the ambiance. I went alone for dinner and felt fine at the counter with the other diners. I was in town for my birthday, and they gave me a special dessert.
They ask you still or sparkling when you sit for lunch, I asked for still and they poured some out of the same bottle as the person next to me. I drank 2 sips of water for the duration of lunch. When I looked at the bill, there was a 10$ charge for water. Honestly if they charged 160 instead of 150 for the lunch I wouldn’t care but this is just a underhanded ploy. Also, there was a bone in my aji. I suspect the quality for lunch is lower than dinner.
Best sushi I’ve had anywhere! The service was extremely courteous and the drinks were good too!
They gave us a special dessert for the birthday.
I was underwhelmed especially given that it is a Michelin Star restaurant. Service was good, food was good weird vibe, dated and odd. Too many choices in Manhattan for great sushi. My apologies for being so harsh.
amazing place! Will try dinner next time.
Extraordinary food quality and friendly attentive service. Two versions of Omakase are the only choices you have and from there you are taking through an authentic Japanese journey. All fish selection is outstanding - we had for instance a few varieties of mackerel and 4 different cuts of toro- allowing for great comparisons. Cooks are Japanese - 1:4 ratio with customers - so extremely personal. The place is quite quiet - so we lightened it up a bit with conversations with the chefs and ended up learning about their knives and katana. Good sake and wine selection. Only issue is price. Very expensive. Worth it but still not an everyday place
One of the best sushi menus I ever had and I was 3 times in Japan...
Rice of perfect acidity and temperature, fish as it could not be fresher.
Good quality, but low value.
Amazing (especially ginger)
We've been to many of the high-end sushi omakase places in NYC, and I have to say that I would not return here. Not at all the intimate experience of comparable places, and the fish and knife work were a pretty mixed bag. Not bad, but your money is much better spent at places like Sushi Zo or Noda.
The best Restaurant in NYC!!!!! O melhor restaurante de NYC!!!!! Amazing
Una experiencia de otro planeta, superlativa en todo sentido.
Just the perfect ultimate omakase dining experience... :-)
I expected more from $300/$400 omakase.
I admit that quality of ingredients was pretty good but the value was not even close to the price.
It was a business dinner so I went there but that was the first time and lat time for me.
not worth it.
also don't give me a point on opentable.
Lots of new items I haven't tried before. A really good surprise with no low points.
On the very expensive side, but having the chef almost for ourselves was great.
Everything is very nice.
best sushi in my life
Even though materials were indeed from Tokyo but their freshness are highly in doubt. Most fishes taste flat. Price wise it is more expensive than those 3 starred sushi restaurants in Tokyo and I am okay with it thinking there are air freight cost included. However, for that price I expect they should be as fresh as those served in Tokyo, but I am disappointed.
Hands down the best nigiris I’ve ever tasted.
If that was not enough, the place was quiet, everyone enjoyed watching the chefs do their craft and the service was excellent.
As someone who does not take risks when it comes to food, I can say that I don’t regret anything.
Onodera is simply one of the best Japanese restaurants out there.
My boyfriend and I came to Sushi Ginza for lunch for his birthday and his first time in NY. We heard a lot of good things about the restaurant and had it at the top of our list to try. We had an amazing experience! The staff was very attentive and friendly. We had a chef all to ourselves and our waitress would always come to clean up our table after every dish and provided images of the type of fish we were having. I’ve been to a number of sushi and omakase restaurants and this has definitely been one of the best. I would 10000% come back next time I’m in NYC.
One of the sushi guys (to call him chef is an insult to Chefs) asked me to eat faster. The sever took away my setting before I finished my courses. The rice is very vinegary which is probably a good way to cover bad fish taste. The tamago was dry, very crumbling dry.
Awesome food and service! First time I have been to the place and loved everything.
Phenomenal Omakase with interesting technique. Over the top service. Well worth the stars.
Amazing sushi served by friendly and attentive staff in a charming restaurant. Eating here feels like you've traveled around the globe to Japan. If you're a fan of sushi, you won't be disappointed here.
Run, don't walk to have the Premium "Kiwami" Omakase Course.
The dinner omakase menu is awesome, with very fresh offerings and friendly chef. A very enjoyable experience!
Best restaurant in NYC. It was the most amazing meal my girlfriend and I have had in NYC (includes dinners at Daniel, Bouley, Jean-George, Nobu, etc). The service was impeccable. Simply superb.
While the sushi was very well presented and tasty it was too little food for the price
