I went to Suzuki’s for the third time, with two of my good friends recently and we had an awesome meal from start to end.
I left very full, completely satiated, and happy with how much I ended up paying. The portions of everything was just about perfect. As I was eating I never found a dish lacking in how much lobster, foie gras, tuna, yellowtail, etc. there was for their respective dishes. The sake/yuzu mixed drink I had was far better than I had expected (although, because I couldn’t taste that much of the sake it’s hard to tell if it’s worth $40/carafe).

I like the restaurant because it is quiet and the dishes are very Japanese, a very different restaurant from a typical sushi restaurant in NYC. However, they keep changing the menu which is a bit surprised.

Very strange experience. Only 3 tables were filled on a Saturday night. The drinks were just bad— Weak and tasteless. The food was mediocre, definitely not even close to the level it should be for the price. The service was great (probably because there were no other diners). We left to get a pretzel after because we were still hungry after a $400 dinner.

The quality of the fish was very inconsistent. Some was great and some was inedible. The restaurant is very nice and completely empty. Service was warm and friendly but at these prices you need to serve top fish and they just don’t have it. I can’t imagine they will be open in a year.

I ordered Hamburg Teishoku. The hamburg was not bad, but the broccoli aside was old and smelt bad.
This should not happen especially at high-end restaurants.
I have been there several times and noticed that the quality of food is going down.
I love the ambience there and it used to be one of my favorite restaurants.
I probably won't go back again.

We were seated near kitchen and were the only ones there when we arrived. Someone was talking very loud in the kitchen area. They could do a lot better in terms of seating and keeping their voice down. They also need to refill the soap dispenser in bathroom. Small attention to these details were lacking but food was good.

I’ve been here many times but it’s 1st time for me to order sushi at lunch but the taste is really not good. The mackerel was so fishy and the sushi rice was sticky which means the chef push it too hard and there is no air left in the rice.
Their normal lunch which I like particular is Hanakago is good but I still feel it was not as good as it used to be compare to the time the restaurant opened. Quality is gradually worsening and I feel sorry about it because I like the place before but no longer now.

Dined at 5:30pm before early theatre so Resteraunt empty. Spring roll tasted like it was warmed up from lunch. Tuna roll was blah and steak was tender but over cooked. Evening was saved by great service.

Food was fantastic as it was the first time I went over a year ago. However service is not even half of what it was. There was no engagement, no stories or chef suggestions behind the kaiseki menu. Twice I had to stop the food runner and ask her what she had delivered as she turned away from the table. She was quite inexperienced - reaching across food as she placed, I watched her thumb touch the food twice — poor training and management. Waited 15 mins after we finished the last course for it to be cleared (even though we pushed it to a side). Then waited another 15 mins for our scoop of vanilla ice cream? I was surprised no special dessert for the keiseki menu.

Shame - I boasted so much about you after the first time I went. Then I see you got a Michelin Star just to see Service dwindle so much. I work in a nearby luxury hotel and have recommended you to guests many times. Guess no longer.

Service was lacking this time. Server brought out an appetizer (salmon sushi roll) about 20 minutes after we were already done with our main course. Server seemed to not know what they were doing and didn’t meet the quality of this restaurant. Was slightly running at one point, seemed overwhelmed. understaffed floor?

Based on reputation, we both ordered the (expensive) kaiseki dinners, & every course was a disappointment. Not one dish rose above mediocre. Maybe it was a bad night, but I could not recommend this place based on this miserable experience.

We got the omakase, and it was delicious. Great selection of sashimi and the wide variety of flavors blended very well! The accents of salad, octopus side and dessert topped the meal off well. Our server, who was very helpful and knowledgeable, recommended an excellent sake that was fairly rich in flavor yet crisp, not overwhelming. The decor and ambiance were a perfect pair with the cuisine, a marriage of simplicity and uniqueness.

My dining companion and I chose to splurge for a kaiseki dinner (we had the modern kaiseki). I would say that we liked it, but didn't love it and ended up feeling that it wasn't really worth the high price tag compared to other similarly priced tasting menus that we have enjoyed. The fish courses (sashimi and the grilled cod) were the best parts of the meal, but many of the other dishes were not that interesting - the appetizers were overly sweet (which is not really faithful to Japanese cuisine). Presentation was nice and the service was very good. I'll add that I really didn't like the ambient music in the place. If I was to return to this establishment, I'd probably go with the sushi kaiseki - but probably I would not return and would try one of the other kaiseki options in the city instead.

The location is 2 or more flights down in the basement at Times Square. While it was refreshing to get out of that chaos, the all black, very somber decor and the fact there was only one other small table seated made for a less than welcoming ambiance. The staff was great as were the dishes and their presentation.

Food was just okay given the price level. I am allergic to lobster and they first still gave me the lobster(after I told them the 3rd time that I cant have lobster). They gave me a dish which has a small piece of grilled salmon skin as a replacement. I am not a food expert but I don’t feel they have similar price.

Not impressed with the sushi, the 100 dollar price tag doesnt fit the bill. I belive i can get the same quality sushi from a local restaurant non michelin star tht tastes just as good for 20 bucks. The premium is in the name. Not for me.

The door to the restaurant is extremely heavy and with the strong wind on the day I arrived I was struggling to open it. The hostess just sat there watching me struggle and did not offer to help. The door actually slammed back on my foot and ripped my boot and hurt me a lot. Not a great start (I had to make sure my foot wasn’t bleeding) but still looked forward to being cheered by the meal. The food was blah to gross. The fish that came w my bento style entree was dry, cold and over cooked. I almost gagged on the sea urchin (which I’ve enjoyed at other restaurants). The miso soup was oddly very sweet. I think the rice was the only thing I actually enjoyed. I would take En Brasserie any day over this where everything on their bento style tasting plates is fresh and excellent.
