The service was quick and attentive. I had one piece of fresh salmon and one piece of smoked salmon, both of which were tasty and fresh. I had chicken stir fry as my meal, which I would rate as adequate; the sushi was better. Finally, the desert and wine were both delicious and well worth the value. I would go back to Sushi Damo as a modestly priced meal with friends or family.

Great location before the ballet. Fast and friendly service. Sushi was very good and enjoyable. Cocktails were tasty and strong. We will come back! Thank you for also holding onto our scarf that was left behind, for us to pickup.

Entertain family from Mississippi. They’re in for the Thanksgiving parade. Everything was superb. Beef teriyaki, shrimp tempura, spicy Toro jalapeño roll, dragon roll, and oysters. The butterfly martini is wonderful. I may have left out a few of the courses it’s so hard to figure out what was best.Our family also had difficulty deciding what they liked most.

On a whole, everything was wonderful, but the service was a bit slow, once seated. We had to flag down a waiter to oder, and our drinks (there were 2 of us) came almost 5 minutes apart. Thankfully, our food did come together. Overall it was a slow but very pleasant evening.

A subdued, elegant casual eatery off of Columbus Circle with conventional but deliciously-prepared Sushi fare, at a very reasonable price given the upmarket location. Our dining experience was interrupted a bit by a large family - so request one of the several tables for two in the front windows or columns for a little break from NYC crazy.

Sushi Damo's convenient location and quiet, minimal space made it a wonderful spot for lunch and conversation. The lunch specials were wonderful -- the rolls were made with small, appropriate amounts of rice and fresh, flavorful ingredients. Servers were gracious and we did not feel rushed. Highly recommend.

Place is ok but service is bad. We had a confirmed reservation with open table and we arrived the receptionist rejected us saying that the place was closed!! Only after a few discussions they let us dine. Waitress didn’t want to serve us a second beer while having sushi stating that “last call” elapsed.!!

This was the first time in a couple of years that we've had sushi, thanks(?) to the pandemic. It was a great reentry. We shared the sushi & sashimi for 2, plus an extra roll. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The fish was all cut well and the pieces of sushi were an appropriate size and temperature, not the monster clumps of rice with badly hacked fish you might get from cheap sushi joints. Overall, it was a good value.
We went early, because other reviews here mentioned slow service. That was not at all the case for us; service was quite efficient, especially since when I made the reservation I had mentioned that we had to get to a concert across the street at the Time-Warner Center. But do be aware that they do not automatically bring the check; you have to ask for it.
I can see returning here other times we got to something at Time-Warner.

When ordering we mentioned in passing it was my husband’s birthday. They brought out mochi with candle and sang to him - a totally kind surprise at end of an already lovely meal.
