Everything was wonderful. Food and beverages were delicious, friendly and knowledgeable service. I had marked on open table that it was for a birthday, and without asking they brought out a lit candle with his dessert; so thoughtful. Fantastic all around, a wonderful birthday dinner.

A surprisingly interesting omikase. Truly delicious. Probably the best sushi in town.

It was very good! The chef is not the same, that’s why now they changed the name for Yoshi Kaito hence the menu also changed, including the price

Food and service were both lovely! We left very satisfied with the meal. The restaurant has a new chef and he was fantastic. The restaurant has divides between parties so it felt a little more private and the ambience was nice. Definitely make a reservation.

As always our dinner omakase experience at Sushi Kaito was superb. The food was extremely fresh and our Sushi chef guessed right on what we liked. I love eating at the counter to watch the Chef do his magic and it is a better experience when you are doing omakase.

Best sushi on the UWS. We went for omakase sushi, it was perfect. Really glad we can go back here after the Covid closure. The barseats are neatly seperated for covid safety.

I miss their outstanding prepandemic omakase but this version is solid. The outdoor dining was comfortable and felt safe. The food is always fantastic.

Now re-opened with outdoor (covered) seating. The omakase is understandably pared-down but still delicious and a good value. Try the Belgian-Japanese beer!

Sushi Kaito is the best sushi I’ve tried in NY. I’ve been there at least 5 times in the last couple of years and they keep surprising me with the quality and variety (I think they actually keep track of what I’ve tried before and they change the Omakase). The atmosphere is familiar and they are very friendly. A must in NY!

We went here on Saturday night for a birthday dinner and still can't stop thinking about the omakase on Monday morning. We sat in a beautiful (and safe) three-wall outdoor space with dividers in between tables and a heater overhead (the temperature was just under 50°F and we felt comfortable). We were impressed with the level of attention and care that the wait staff gave us. Would highly recommend for an evening out!

SUSHI KAITO IS THE BEST OMAKASE EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD IN NYC. I WAS SO SICK OF MEAN CHEFS AND INHOSPITABLE SUSHI OMAKASES THAT WERE EXTREMELY OVERRATED AND OVERPRICED. WOULD DEFINITELY REVISIT, I LOVE THIS PLACE! SUSHI IS SO FRESH AND SERVICE IS GREAT.

This was our second dining experience at Sushi Kaito, and loved it as much as our first! Both times we enjoyed the Omakase menu, but now that they have an a la carte menu as well, we look forward to try more deliciously fresh sushi options. They have created a very comfortable outdoor dining experience, and Hiro did an amazing job to ensure we had a phenomenal time there.

This was our first time at sushi kaito. The sushi lived up to its reputation. They have a different menu for outdoor dining that is very reasonable. And they have a great outdoor dining setup. Also, the service was wonderful. We can’t wait to go back.

This is my favorite sushi place in New York. They’ve change the menu and made it more accessible, with more options than before. The sushi is still exquisite. We sat outside; 72nd St. can be kind of busy, so there was some street noise. Service was attentive. Definitely going back more often.
