    Unique omakase experience in an intimate setting, prepared and served by Japanese chef and two sous chefs. 17+ courses. Each one an artistic creation blending traditional Sushi forms with subtle variations. No inauthentic ingredients such as cream cheese or sauces. A full, relaxing evening of culinary surprises and perfect service.

    Jack was incredible. Wonderful and memorable night but only for the delicious 17 course meal, but also for the first class service. In the beginning of the meal, the staff explains that the intention of a 12 seat omakase is to feel like you are eating with friends. The staff more than accomplished this. I will be back

    Couldn’t have had better service. Friendly, attentive, great story tellers. I wasn’t expecting omakase, but was happy with it. More courses than I normally expect. About 1/4 of courses were outstanding, the other 3/4 were pretty good. Would have been great at a different price point, but at this one a bit better is expected. I wouldn’t go back given price and only a couple “wow”pieces, but I don’t regret having gone either.

    outstanding overall. if there's any complaint--and it's a minor one--it's that with a 8:30 service coming right after the 6p, it felt slightly rushed. still, i'd come back just perhaps for the late seating.

    We lucked out booking on Halloween weekend and had the whole place to ourselves. Chef Soma and Jack made our entire experience worth it. I love how much we learned about each piece we ate and everything was just high quality. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a higher end omakase experience.

    I have never tasted sushi like this before. The flavors were incredible. The fish (and melon) were sourced at the peak of freshness and flavor, throughout the world. What a gem for any foodie seeking a special sushi experience. You will not be disappointed.

    This is a unique experience rarely met outside Japan. The ingredients are of best quality and used wisely to create astonishing cusin. Nuances of delicate taste originating this cultural tribute in the heart of Manhattan, without compromise or flattery to the western palate Uieko implore to activate those buds and sense long forgotten, developing a yawn to simple naive earthy dishes.
