their seating is only an hour and a half long and this was not enough time for us to comfortably finish our meal and then be able to digest for one minute before they come and they asked us to get up. I found it to be quite rude. There was no desserts or even a cup of tea when the meal was finished they were clearing the table right away. I found it to be quite rude. There was no dessert or even a cup of tea and the meal was finished. For the amount of money for the dinner the settings should be at least two hours.

Wow wow wow ! A mix of flavors , quiet an exquisite experience of the senses! Amazing Omakase . Went there for birthday celebration of my boyfriend and the experience and the food were incredible! So so worth it and will go back again for sure.
The fact that it’s intimate quiet and no music allows your senses to be really focused on what you are tasting in the menu without distractions and noise.
We got a signed book by the check at the end of the experience.

This was my first Omakase and it was amazing. You are attended to from the moment you walk in. Your glass is never empty and the omakase itself was fantastic. Every bite was amazing and I will definitely go back for another memorable special occasion.

I used to live in NYC and would frequent Omakase Room on a regular basis ever since I discovered it. Now that I live on the other side of the coast, I make it a point to make a reservation here every time I visit NYC. The ambiance reminds me of a fav omakase place in Tokyo, the sushi is top notch and meticulous, and the service impeccable. The staff always remembers us, and seats us right in front of Tatsu. It is always great to watch him do his magic, to take such pride in his sushi and care of his customers. This past visit he even gave us Shinko, a rare fish that's time consuming to prepare, and very delicious. Then we found out he planned it in advance when he saw our reservation! To add to that he gifted us a copy of his book which I'm currently enjoying. We love this little gem of a place and its chef and staff. Very much looking forward to our next visit when we're back in NYC!

Some of the finest sushi in the city, served on a 10 chair counter. Only two seatings, each for 90 minutes. But you won't be disappointed. Shocking impact on the pocketbook, but it is not clear how one assigns a value to some of the best sushi you have had.

Food was really really good. Very enetertaining to watch the chef Tatsu at work, he kept a slight smile on his face the entire time. Only complaint is that it was a way too quiet which made it feel too serious. Wished there was some background music playing.

Amazing meal, amazing service. The sushi was incredibly tender and flavorful. 18 courses at a slightly lower price point than other places with fewer courses, and none of the courses were close to mediocre. Definitely worth the price for a splurge meal.

Simplicity is what you find walking in the door, but complexity is what you find in what may be the most simple and humble preparation of Sushi in New York. Chef’s choice of fish is unmatched. I’ve now eaten at all the high end sushi joints here and this, by far, mimics the best of the Tokyo sushi joints. There’s no roll selection, there’s no cute sauces, there’s two simple ingredients: fish and rice. It’s all about the product he has chosen and how he respects the rice. Absolutely sublime and also QUICK as Sushi SHOULD be eaten. 90 minutes start to finish of 18 nigiri pieces. I should add that I was able to add to mine at the end including a tamago piece. Although not as good as Jiro’s, it still was nice to end the meal traditionally. And the miso soup is out of this world. GO. HERE. NOW. if you want a true Tokyo experience without the plane ticket or the insane prices of Ginza!!

This was our third visit and it continues to be great. One if the most authentic omakases in NYC. Certainly feel transported to japan. For the quality it is decent value at $135. The only thing I would change, i would start the first sitting at 5.30pm so that we can make the sittings 1h45min instead of 1h30min.

Omakase Room by Tatsu was one of the best dining experiences I've had in NYC. Tatsu-san and his team create such a unique and warm atmosphere. Tatsu's use of local fish makes his omakase selection even more interesting, and all of his pieces were simply stunning. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique and personalized sushi experience.

Omakase Room is not only a restaurant, it is a theatrical experience. To be in zen-like surroundings and watching the chef practice his art with such pride is a special experience. The quality of the fish was delicious, and the personal attention my friend and I received from the waiter was impeccable. At $135 for 18 pieces of sushi, the tasting menu is a deal for New York!
