    Nice combination of offerings for those who like sushi and those who prefer cooked food. They have a bit of everything. We stayed mostly with the sushi. The tartare of salmon and tuna were very good, the platters of sushi offered a nice selection. All in all good but priced on the high side.

    Food was excellent always but service not so much. We had a very rude waiter which was shocking and why I’m writing. Abruptly and rudely interrupted me and my friend while talking - several times. It’s not that hard to approach the table, stand there, wait a beat. Don’t just barge in. Also looked at me like I was insane when. I ordered a gin sour. Clearly he hadn’t heard of it - made it seem like a massive imposition to “ see if they had the ingredients” to make it. Terrible service. Super rushed and pushy. Not great and I eat here all the time.

    10/10 - the service, ambiance, and food were amazing. We made a reservation here for my birthday because it offered fresh, melt in your mouth fish, decent selection of cooked foods, and delicious desserts. The raving reviews for Blue Ribbon did not disappoint.

    Our waiter was amazing, very helpful in giving advice on what to order and very attentive about letting us know what was gluten free and what was not, which was necessary for one member of our party. The food was spectacular – extremely fresh and varied. Very extensive sake menu, but many other drinks are available. Prices are higher than the average sushi restaurant but that’s for good reason. You pay for what you get there!

    Service is excellent, atmosphere is good and relaxing especially in that bustling area. However prices and food quality don’t match, my sushi was good but not a sushi of high end restaurant( freshness, taste, presentation). Overall if you are looking for unique experience I don’t recommend to go.

    Excellent Sushi with Great Service at Rational Prices! Our party of 6 went after a Lincoln Center performance. Though we arrived at about 10:20 pm, still euphoric from the ballet, and though we were the last party served, the servers were gracious, patient and very good-humored throughout our dinner and at no time did we feel rushed. The appetizers, both raw and cooked, were excellent, as was the sushi. Perhaps most remarkably in 2022 NYC, the bill was extremely reasonable, at less than $100 per person all in, including drinks and a nearly 25% tip. The hipsters and tech moguls can keep their $350 a head omakase. This was my second recent visit to this spot, and I'm delighted to have discovered it.

    Really impressed by the restaurant. The good quality was amazing and the price realistic. We didn’t want to go in a touristic place and I was really it. A real traditional Japanese place and the staff was really nice. I definitely recommend this place if you like real authentic sushi.

    Absoluately amazing experience! Highly recommended and AAAA+++ First, the signature dish - Ox Tail fried rice is exceptional. The dragon roll melts in your mouth and you can never have enough lol ;) The other sushi were also very tasty. The uni (priced per day) is also very good too. Do yourself a favor and go to this location or one of the locations. We arrived just when they were opening in the morning so it was nice and quiet. The staff were very attentive and informative. 5/5 stars

    Overall, it's a good place. The bread pudding with ginger ice cream is something that I will be dreaming about for days! Overall, while the variety of sushi is unique, I found it to be overpriced for what I received.

    Out of 3 items we ordered all 3 items ( 2 food and the sake selection) were not available. That's not a good start. We had a late 10pm dinner on a Sunday and the waiter rushed us as soon as we were seated. In the end he basically told us anything else and dropped the check. The entire experience was less than 1 hour. The official closing time is midnight. I understand that Sundays may not be as busy but the service was just bad and rude. I. hosted a chef-client from Europe that evening and this experience was truly an embarrassment.

    My sister and I dined here on a Wednesday whilst visiting NYC from London, where we regularly eat at other good sushi restaurants. This place was by far one of our favourites ever. Excellent service by our waiter, she was perfectly attentive, welcoming and helpful with our menu and sake choices. The food was excellent, very fresh sushi, excellent wagu, etc. We also really liked the general atmosphere where we were seated at the back near the open kitchen. We were recommended this place by friends and will be recommending to others!

    Overpriced decent quality sushi. Beautiful decor! Nothing is bad here, but you're paying for the ambiance and location. There's better fish and/or value elsewhere in the neighborhood (e.g. Omakase by korami, Uogashi, Sushi Yasaka).
