    If I can give zero stars I would. One of the worst omakase and overall dining experiences. First off, the wait staff was abysmal, they had no idea what was being served to the customers. Every time they put a plate down, I had to constantly ask what was being served. They were not attentive at all and I felt as if I was spending more time trying to get their attention more than anything else. To top it off, I had a live bug on one of my dishes and when I told the wait staff they just took my plate, said “thank you” and replaced it without any further comments. Second was the actual meal, the fish felt like it had been sitting out for a while and almost tasted spoiled. Anything smoked was overdone and tasted burnt. Anything raw lacked the high grade sushi quality expected. Even the cooked dishes had an odd taste to them. It was so terrible that I had to walk out of the dinner with 4 courses still left. I will never come back here again nor would I recommend this place to anyone who remotely wants to have an edible meal.

    This is my second time here in one month. Really elevated fusion Omakase (Japanese, French, Latin American twist) done in a very elegant way. I’m typically a purist when it comes to sushi, but U Omakase does it in a balanced way. Really love the king salmon sushi, hiramasa with mushrooms and light truffle sauce, king crab with roe in a French cream sauce, masu with cherry wood smoke, among others. Vibe is aesthetically pleasing, the service and team are friendly (they give you a free sake pouring!) without the unpretentiousness and fuss at other omakase places.

    We thought we would never see chef Yasu again ever since he closed down his Forest Hills location. By a stroke of luck, we came upon his restaurant on open table and booked the next available seating we could find. The food is everything we remember and more. A mixture of your traditional Japanese nigiri pieces and dishes that are more modern. We are definitely coming back again and telling all our friends who loved his restaurant in Forest hills where to find him. Thank for for an amazing meal!

    Great place for a celebration. Unique bites, each served separately, thus allotting time to savor and appreciate. Attentive and energetic staff helped maintain a festive atmosphere and were eager to converse about the courses and the techniques involved. Generous pourings of sake served as a social lubricant so no one seemed to be condemned to dine as a wallflower.

    Delicious and inventive tasting menu that brings welcome inventive dishes along with traditional nigiri for an intimate dining experience (there were about 15 guests seated at the same time for a two-hour, 15-course meal). Lively atmosphere that is helped by the generous BYOB with no corkage fee and a wine ice bucket for each couple, which allowed us to share bottles with other guests we met at the dinner. Some of the early dishes were light on flavor despite gorgeous presentation, but the final third of the meal made up for this with bold, tasty, and unexpected ingredient combinations. Great bargain for a high-quality and unique restaurant (about $115/person after tax and tip, and then you can bring whatever drinks you want).
