Sushi Damo Ratings and Reviews
I'd recommend Sushi Damo as good sushi restaurant to avoid! Food was mediocre til I ordered a tempura roll which was brought to me in less than 3 minutes. It was cold, tough, and obviously
left over for some reason. However, it gave me the reason not to go back here. Let all prospective buyers beware!
Mediocre food, but the staff was great. The dining room was attractive and quiet. We weren't anxious to go out into the 10-degree weather, and we never felt rushed to leave. I hope that we caught the kitchen on an off night, because the restaurant could be a winner.
I've had the opportunity to walk by this Sushi Damo many times and always thought it would a nice, quite place to enjoy dinner. Therefore, I made a reservation to go there for my husband's birthday. The moment we walked in, the noise level was loud and I felt like I had made a mistake going there. But the service was good, the meals were good, and the seat by the window was good. But none of it was extraordinary. I do not like to lower my expectations when eating out, and I'm finding that so many restaurants in New York that are rated highly aren't that good and they are always noisy.
Go to spot for good sushi in Columbus Circle. Brought my wife's visiting Mother (from Korea) here for some good quality sushi on Saturday night and we were not disappointed. We've been coming here for a few years and always leave happy (and full). A few reasons why...
1. Great cocktails served by an always happy bartender
2. Sushi is consistently fresh and tasty
3. Menu offers a lot of variety from traditional to trendy
4. Service is warm and friendly
5. Atmosphere is modern, clean and classy
6. Location near Columbus Circle and Lincoln Square (also close to Theater District)
7. Reasonable Prices
Really love this place and highly recommend!
Since we discovered Sushi Damo, we can no longer enjoy a sushi dinner in Westchester, where we live. Besides the sushi, the miso soup and shumai are extremely good. Great service, efficient and friendly. Had the drunken shrimp appetizer (happy hour) for the first time and it too was terrific. The food is worth the cost.
Each I've gone to sushi damo, I felt I was being rushed to leave, they bring all food together soooo fast and always get you the check without asking for it. I go for dinners to relax and not to be stressed out. Also, their decoration and table set up is horrible, be ready to listen to everyone's conversation around you and certainly they will be doing the same since they would be sitting less than an inch away . Will not be back, so many other sushi places to go to.
Love Sushi Damo... It's become our Sushi Go To spot when in the city.
Why? Location is great being so close to Columbus Circle. Food is always good... This visit we tried the Duck App and loved it. My favorite is their Spicy Tuna Roll, which we have during every visit. The Bar, small but always welcoming. The bartender is very kind and makes a great Martini... We love the fruity type, like Peartini or Lycheetini... Sometimes the Chocolate Martini.
Finally, the service. Everyone is extremely friendly and attentive. Never have we had a bad experience at Shushi Damo.
Great experience. We were looking for a place to eat before an event at Carnegie Hall and found this through OpenTable. It was a good sushi bar and Japanese restaurant. Food was good and there were people in there with children who were obviously regulars. We had a quiet table in the corner and enjoyed our meal.
Fine sushi place to where I'd go back. Among the best miso soups that I've had and the $28 sushi combo is definitely a decent price when compared to other places of similar quality.
While the fish was extremely fresh, the rice was very good but not my favourite in terms of consistency (being a bit nit picky).
I left before I could even try the food. After waiting over 10 minutes and observing the table next to me flailing their arms in the air so they could get a servers attention to try and order, and still not being greeted or offered water, I had seen enough and I left.
I went to Masseria Dei Vini right down the street and had a fabulous experience.
Not going back to Damo- ever
We are here on Saturday night because it was somewhere that the two of us could eat. My boyfriend loves sushi whereas I hate it, so sometimes it's difficult to please both of us. I had the chicken teriyaki which was yummy and my boyfriend had 3 different types of sushi rolls. My only bad point about this restaurant is I would like the option to use a knife and fork or chop sticks. I found it difficult to eat my dish without a knife to cut the chicken and veg smaller. Apart from that it was great.
We ordered two rolls (one dragon, one ocean), two beers and edamame. The service was fine. $100 later, we left hungry and had to grab something afterward (thank goodness Whole Foods is across the street). The sushi was very good, the ocean roll was particularly fresh and delicious, but the portions are very small. I probably would not return. Seems made for tourists -- good location near Columbus Circle.
The quality of the food here has gone way down. The sushi was mushy and just not good. The avocado on top of a roll I order wasn't even a slice, it was like it was spread on. It didn't even look appetizing and the taste matched the look. I will never be back.
