                        This used to be my favorite restaurant in the city. Unfortunately quality has gone downhill. Flavors are no longer there and fish is just more “bland.” Overall poor value for money and will never be returning.

                        Exquisite sushi. Not the cheapest, but if you want quality sushi, it's actually not a bad price. Omakase only.

                        Poorly executed sushi. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had with a sushi place. I’d match this up with 7-11 sushi. Don’t waste your time this was a horrible experience.

                        If you want authentic Sushi and a memorable meal, this place transports you back to Japan. The place is small, with counter service only, yet it adds to the intimacy of your meal. Not only is the ingredients of the highest quality, the chefs are experts at their craft. The presentation is absolutely beautiful, the flavors perfectly balanced. The wait staff are very attentive. I would highly recommend for a true Omakase experience.

                        Very simple, small spot with just a 10-seat sushi bar. Superb fish served simply and sparingly, making an elegant 13- or 17-course omakase. The sake list could have been better, but there were a few winners. Overall a great experience, if somewhat overpriced.

                        Omikase for $135 pp was overpriced. Good selection of sushi. Nothing was outstanding. They were out of most Saki options. The host and waitress were great, the sushi chef was grumpy and did not want to be bothered to answer our questions about the servings. We didn’t leave unhappy, just was not memorable.

                        Sushi Kaito is a quaint, easy to miss, humble omakase on the UWS. The quality of the sushi is superb and there are only about 9 seats so their seats fill up fast. I like that its a smaller setting and it’s much quieter than your usual outing because it’s smaller. I loved my experience here and I would highly recommend Sushi Kaito.

                        The outdoor dining is clean, spacious and quiet and is probably a better option than the cramped indoor dining quarters.

                        This is one of the best values for omakase in the city. They do an excellent job with separating diners for social distancing.

                        Everything was amazing, the food is delicious and service is excellent. Only thing I would note is that for the $98 omakase they say 9 pieces, but with the additional courses it ends up being substantial amount of food, so if you typically get filled with ~13 pieces get this one. I went for the larger alternative and it was a LOT of food (all absolutely delicious)

                        My friend and I went for our birthdays and were very happy overall. The quality of the fish is amazing and so delicious and the service is fantastic. The drinks are way too expensive, though.

                        Outstanding quality of fish and attentive service. The 18 course is a bit much so probably will get the 15 next time. One of the waitstaff pronounced several Japanese words incorrectly (like sake and sashimi, central parts of this restaurant’s offerings) which was a bit off putting but otherwise excellent meal.

                        To use the word special is almost an understatement. The care that the chefs here give to the food and the service is outstanding. Sushi Kaito far exceeds any expectations.
