Sushi was very good but the side salad was not. You may need to change leaves and/or dressing.

First time here and can’t believe I haven’t heard of it before. I stumbled upon this on open table then checked the yelp reviews. The meal was fantastic and service was great. I think the chef may have been from Sushi of Gari (another great sushi place) but this meal was way better than Gari usually is. Looking forward to coming back soon!

Pleasant surprise stopping by for omakase sushi. Perfect for a business dinner with the great sushi and quiet atmosphere. Service was great. Would definitely go again.

This evening was our very first visit to Sushi Ryusei after a personal recommendation from a friend.
All of us at the table had a truly wonderful and momentous evening with wonderful perfectly prepared food, incredibly attentive and very polite service, a sake list that was just the right number of affordable excellent choices....... but not overwhelming with too many options or esoteric choices.
I have enjoyed sushi all around the USA and the fish here is of the absolute highest quality. If you have never had a piece or otoro literally melt in your mouth then you need to come here NOW! Interestingly, the high quality of the salmon was like otoro and also literally melted in the mouth. And PLEASE, do not skip dessert as there are several lovely and delightful choices here as well...... especially the Tiramisu !
If you are a sushi devotee........ please visit this delightful restaurant.

This place was just OK. We went for Omakase and had many courses. The service was superb, but much of the sushi and sashimi was OK at best. I'd suggest elsewhere.

Wonderful food and service. They celebrated my son’s birthday without us having to remind them (I indicated the occasion on the app when booking). Have already recommended the restaurant to several other friends. It’s a gem!

The set menu has a very good pricing. We had the sushi B, which came with a variety of different fish. It doesn’t come with any shellfish, but I guess for the price, we can’t expect that.

Sushi Ryusei offers exquisite omakase dining in a sleek, relaxing atmosphere. Good sake selection. Genuinely friendly staff, superb service. I spotted some gorgeous tempura on a table, but sushi counter dining is strictly omakase. No miss and a definite return-to location.

Came here last week for dinner and what a pleasant experience, the fish was fresh and the service impeccable. Love the variety of selection available and even the cooked appetizers were on point. My favorite was the sweet shrimp, Hokkaido uni and spicy scallop hand roll. The enoki mushrooms were tasty as were the fried chicken and shrimp Siu Mai. Definitely will be coming back!

Sushi was phenomenal. Staff were incredibly courteous and attentive. The ambiance was mellow, elegant. For what one gets - top notch sushi, great service and atmosphere - it’s totally worth it. We visited NYC for just 3 days and ate here twice.

Sushi Ryusei is outstanding. Both times I have been, I have loved the Omakase sushi lunch and the ambiance. It is a great setting for a work-related lunch/dinner or a social lunch/dinner. It is now on my list of recommended restaurants in Midtown East / Murray Hill.

Dined here before going to Hamilton. We’ll definitely be back for the excellent food and service. My husband is a picky sushi guy and this place didn’t disappoint. He especially loved Salmon skin roll. Casey, our server was lovely and we hope we sit in your section next time.

Sushis are excellent.
Great chefs and staff!
Ambiance in the restaurant is good.
Had the privilege to eat at the counter infront of the chefs, it was a pleasure to see them preparing the sushis.

This was an overpriced meal for subpar quality sushi. Ambiance is more effective than an ambien as it will put you right to sleep. I would avoid at all cost unless getting ripped off is your thing.

Nice, fresh sushi. There's a big difference between the sushi regular and sushi deluxe though. Spend the extra $10 and get the deluxe because they give you much better cuts of fish. I didn't get it - my husband did - because I didn't need that much sushi, but even the same fish- salmon, tuna, etc. is better in the deluxe, which I wish they'd said on the menu.

Good food, if a bit pricey. Toro and other dishes were crowd pleasers, as expected. But someone the red snapper on the sushi and sashimi deluxes has bones. Dark and modern inside. Service is attentive but not overbearing. They’re aiming for a premium experience but it falls a little short.

We went here for Omakase (chefs tasting) because of the reviews. Wow we weren’t disappointed. The whole experience was incredible. We sat at the sushi bar and were immediately pampered by the staff. The sushi chef then set down plate after plate of incredible sushi, sashimi and hand rolls. Each one was delicious and we had dishes that we would never have had otherwise. The plates were different and perfectly flavored.

The service was excellent. After every course, the plates were replaced and the counter cleaned. We also got hot towels to clean our hands.

The experience was incredible. It was expensive, but a special night and well worth it.
