Some friends and I came out to New York and two of us decided to slip away for lunch at Sushi Ginza Onodera. The hospitality from the staff was unbelievable, Chef Saito and his incredible expertise was beyond impressive. And the sushi we received met every expectation and more. Overall it was a meal and an experience I will never forget!

Food was really good.
The attention was excellent.
Came in for lunch menu (15 niguiri pieces).

Totally recommend.

This is not traditional sushi made from fresh fish.
All fish are delicately aged: Edomae sushi. Different and more complex flavors.

Très cher pour le résultat. Je ne comprends pas l’etoile Michelin obtenue car cela ne correspond pas aux critères d’un restaurant étoilé. Le montant de l’addition est inacceptable pour la qualité du repas. Pas de choix pour le vin et le champagne, une vue sur la cuisine qui n’est pas appétissante. Bref, il ne faut pas y aller!

The experience at Sushi Ginza Onodera was great. The waiters were very nice and helpful and answered all my questions regarding the food. The chef was super friendly and professional as well - sadly he wasn't very outgoing and I was the only one asking, but after a few questions he was happy to explain how their fish is aged and prepared. Their roasted green tea is excellent and the $130 lunch omakase was worth the price. The Uni and Toro Roll were great and the rice texture, taste and temperature were outstanding. Some here claim the taste of vinegar is too strong. I found it to be perfect but that's a matter of preference. Also their home-pickled and freshly cut baby ginger was insane (best ginger I have had so far). However I feel like some of the nigiri lacked a little flavour, especially the first few pieces - but I guess that's part of their philosophy, building up subtle flavours towards the end untill you reach the fatty fish and Uni. Sadly my toro nigiri had a small sinew in it and hence was a little tough to chew.
However, all in all a great experience!

One of the best sushi places in NYC. Easy to make a reservation for weekday lunch.
There is a good selection of drinks (alcohol and non-alcohol).

Having eaten the Hawaiian location, i was extremely surprised by the poor service and unfriendly attitudes. I arrived 10 minutes early, there was no space to wait or sit down, event tough the restaurant was empty. This turned out to be the theme for the evening and with so many fabulous sushi restaurant in NYC, there is no reason to pay $400+ for unremarkable sushi, served in a workmanlike manner with a poor attitude

Disappointing. At these prices you would expect a fantastic Omikase. I could get this quality sushi at any half decent sushi place. For better results try Shuko, Zo or Seki First Avenue. Now those are Omikase.

We were surprised that Sushi Ginza Onadera was not better. For $400. Per person for the premium omakase, we expected top quality fish for every course. Some of the sushi was delicious, the golden eye snapper and the Otoro for instance but the two two premium courses consisted of a pretty tasteless hairy crab and a rubbery Japanese tiger prawn. We generally got the feeling there
Was no one really paying attention to what was happening in this part of 6 (?) outpost chain. Situation was not improved by a server’s recommendation of an expensive and saccharine sweet sake. This restaurant really cannot compete with others in NYC that offer high quality fish at much lower prices.
