One of the best OMAKASE experiences! Quality of food impressive, service impeccable and Sushi Chefs amazing. Highly recommended is an understatement.

Sublime sushi. The chance to watch masters working with the very best product. Not one movement wasted. Every ingredient served at its vest. The closest I’ll come to meditation when eating sushi.

Food was ok, but with $300 price tag you can get a better experience and better food in any restaurants on par. Plus, the chef didn’t learn the sushi making skill in Japan but in the States..

Great sushi obviously. The lack of dress code kinda sucks and guarantees unsavory clientele with too much money and no class.

A very enjoyable dinner. The service was impeccable. The food was very good, but we’re not sure it met the $300 price per person for the Omakase. We also opted for the Hairy Crab dish which was $60 extra. It was delicious, but not worth the extra price.

Although each dish was given a few words explanation, it was a bit difficult to understand. A more detailed description might garner a better appreciation on what we were partaking.

The service was definitely Michelin 2 star worthy but not the food not so much.

As with my previous review of Sushi Ginza Onodera NYC, this was the highlight meal , again. Fish quality is the absolute highest level, the Chefs and staff are superb, and I continue to tell others to eat here whenever possible.

I am so disappointed to leave this review because my wife, me and our friends were excited to finally try this omakase restaurant after having missed out while visiting Honolulu. Unfortunately, this overhyped restaurant is not worth the price. You are much better served going to Sugarfish a dozen times or trying omakase elsewhere. We sushi often and found the dishes served here to be very boring and uninspired. We even opted for the "premiere sushi" dishes at $400 per person and were still left very disappointed. There are many great options for excellent sushi, sadly this is not one of them.

This is a very expensive dinner and unfortunately unless you are very wealthy is for very special occasions. However if you can splurge, like Sushi and are willing to try new things, it is an extraordinary experience. The service is absolutely amazing only exceeded by the quality of the food. Presentation and taste are really incredible.

Excellent service. We have lunch there, most fish served was fresh. The uni served was fresh and tasted close to the one we had in Japan. However, the tuna appetizer and the ambajavk sushi had a taste of unfreshness that wasn’t covered by the extra marinade used. The sea eel was soggy. The rice used for the sushi was seasoned to provide a good balance taste with the fish. However, the sushi rice tends to come apart when you try to pick up the piece even with care. Maybe the stickyness of the rice or the technique needed to be modified .
We were impressed by the excellent service,

Quite simply, the best sushi experience I’ve had in NYC; and I stress the word “experience”. From the presentation to the flavor, you will forget that you are in midtown Manhattan and feel like you are in a high-end Tokyo establishment. If it’s a special occasion, or you simply LOVE sushi and want the best New York has to offer, this place is a must.

Excellent food, excellent service. The bar is a bit bigger than what you'd usually see in a high-end omakase establishment, but it works in the space, and they have enough chefs working that it's not an issue. Overall, a fantastic experience.

Excellent but quick. The highest quality sushi with prices to match. Definately worth a trip,
but don't expect a long lasting romantic experience. For a foodie as this was great fish
combined with interesting serving. I would come back again for a pre theatre lunch as
the food was light and would not take away either experience.
We will return.

Sure, great purist sushi. But for the price I would have expected an intimate and special environment. Yes, having a waitress show you which fish you are eating on an iPad is neat, but also a bit fast-foody to have the device shoved at you. Overall, good food but a rushed and utilitarian feel. Just not worth it unless you want to check it off your list of Michelin restaurants - this one definitely doesn’t deserve its two stars.

Sushi Ginza Onodera is an other wordly experience not sure your casual spicy tuna roll loving friend. Each fish was something special and unique that we have not experienced elsewhere. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here and were blown away by the attentive service and food. Every 4 people (2 parties of 2) had their own waitress and sushi chef. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.
