First time back since pre-pandemic. Excellent omakase with pristine fish and perfect presentations. You can taste the care in every bite. Service is spot on as well.

Sushi Ginza Onodera was lovely, as always. The fish quality, all from Toyosu, is of the highest quality, prepared with care, and delivered with flare. Service impeccable.

It' s our first visit to this restaurant and try Omakase lunch course, Love the interior decor, we both enjoyed sitting at the counter top, watch the sushi chef prepare our lunch.
Service is excellent as our server pay attention to every detail. I would recommend this restaurant to our friends and definitely go back again.

Food was amazing.

We were a bit upset about being rushed out of the establishment. This may be due to Covid but nonetheless it disturbed our bliss.

Had pre fixe at the bar.

The course starts with a few cooked dishes and then progresses into sashimi, nigiri and finishes with an incredible chopped tuna, hokkaido uni and ikura temaki. There was a miso soup that was incredibly bold and refreshing.

The service and ambiance was great - truly felt like I was in Ginza (complete with an old rich white guy loudly explaining Vietnam to the sushi chefs and telling his young, female companion she was only a lesbian when it was convenient).

Went on a Tue during COVID. Was a bit pricey but there were only 4 other people at the bar (not including my partner) and everything was superb so I really shouldn't complain.

Incredible experience! I’ve had my fair share of fine dining in Japanse cuisine but this blew everything out of the water. The Omakase does not get better then this and then the overal service provided by every staff member makes you feel so special and feel very spoiled.

No matter if you’re new or familiar this is quite the treat!

(I usually don’t write reviews like this so take that in account)

Omakase is my guilty pleasure and it was such a treat to experience this Michelin Star restaurant! The staff was kind and attentive, the fish was fresh and spectacularly prepared, and they went above and beyond with a special birthday treat of champagne and a candle with dessert! Will definitely be back next time we’re in NY!

Perfect anniversary date we had. We were already thinking when we will revisit right after we stepped out the restaurant. I like how they showed us what fishes we were eating with the iPad. Staffs are friendly and they pay attention to details. Also, we received complimentary drinks for our anniversary. It was just a perfect date we had.

This is now my favorite sushi restaurant in the United States. Attentive staff. Skillful sushi chefs. Top ingredients. These combine to offer an unforgettable dining experience. The only equivalent sushi experience in NYC today is Masa. The lunch omakase is a bargain for what you get.

I tried octopus row sushi for the first time here. I got emotional about how great this new taste experience was. Each piece is carefully and immaculately prepared and presented. Each grain of rice is perfectly shaped and cooked. Every bite that I have ever eaten here has been memorable and moving.

The service and accommodations were phenomenal as not only the servers very hospitable and welcoming, but the chef also did not hesitate to interact with customers. The quality and freshness of the sushi is definitely worth the price, especially given the flavors, textures, and quality of individual ingredients. I look forward to going back soon!

The lunch menu, I personally think, has a really good value. The fish were fresh, and I could actually taste the very flavor of each piece of sushi. The traditional nigiris was really authentic and resembled the tastes I had from top sushi restaurants in Japan. The dessert at the end was really good.

The Uni and Miyazaki beef nigiri was great, I would totally pay an extra 45 dollars for that. However, the truffle toro nigiri was less flavorful in comparison. The two ingredients just have their own very special and strong flavor, and they just overwrote each other in this nigiri.

We had Yuzu Hi-chu and the strawberry champagne. They were all some good mix.

The service was comfortable and authentic. I felt being really cared by our server. And our server and our chef all went out to say goodbye to us.

It was in total a memorable dinning experience.
