Rice was terrible, fell apart even when eaten quickly.

Hostess was extremely rude when I asked them to accommodate a third guest. Acted as if I were being unreasonable. It’s unlikely I’ll ever eat here again.

I have eaten at 5-7 Michelin* sushi restaurants this year in NYC, Singapore, London, and Kuala Lumpur. Each has its best attributes and some that are middle of the road.

Sushi Ginza Onodera is at or near the top of the list in terms of fish portions (large, super fresh slices on nigiri), fish freshness, and overall flavor. The uni was perfect, the toro was silky, the barracuda and hamachi were memorable. The chef was engaging and friendly, ultimately offering some items not included in the omakase itself.

I’ll definitely go again, and lunch omakase is a better deal.

Highly recommend.

I usually don’t write reviews, but felt compelled to write about this one. This is a complete waste of money. I have been to most Omakase counters on NYC and several in Toyko. This was one of the most expensive ones and one of the worst. The initial appetizers were consistently too sweet and the fish was definitely not of the highest quality. Also an overpriced sake menu. I do not see this established lasting in NYC.

Perfect Japenese Fine Dinning in 5th ave NY city.
You can feel like in Japen but with NY Library view.
It is a interesting experience.
Thank the perfect sushi for the Sushi Master Kazunori Hattori and all the staff of Onodera.

The best and only real edomae omakase course in the city. The closest to being in Tokyo without getting on a plane. Hirohito-san is number one!

Cole, our designated sushi chef was absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!! Not only was he attentive and clearly well trained. But he was a good human - he literally walked with us out the door and kept waving us goodbye until we turned the corner. You just don’t see that everyday.

Didn’t mind spending a lot for lunch time. So far it is the best omakase sushi place for me. Chef Hiro entertained me well and taught me a lot about the sushi he was serving. No wonder why it has 2 stars. They deserve it. Service was also excellent!

The food remains the centre of focus, with presentation of great importance as well. Chef Saito’s 2 stars are well justified and, while expensive, the journey here is a must. The sake list is comprehensive and well done. Highly recommended!

This was the most amazing experience I’ve had. I felt completely pampered and attended to. Each morsel was exquisite - I closed my eyes often so I could just focus on the complexities and refinement. My favorite was their serving of Hairy Crab with caviar. The chef was phenomenal and I’m grateful and humbled by the culinary excellence. I recommend trying everything you can.

For the price, this was not a worthwhile omakase experience. The pieces of nigiri were unusually large and uncomfortable to eat. There were no special moments throughout the progression of fish and the culmination of the experience w/ the otoro felt rushed an unexceptional. The patrons seated next to us were very loud and obnoxious (playing YouTube videos on their phone and taking full-volume calls) which definitely soured the experience. It feels like for $300 you are paying for their midtown rent and not an exceptional omakase experience. I've had many other omakase experiences elsewhere in the city that were cheaper, and superior.
