What Insiders Are Saying
How much will you like the West Village's Sushi Nakazawa? How much money do you have, and how recently did you watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi?
Ate there with my wife for our anniversary. Great food and flawless customer service
Definitely a special occasion event. This place took us on a journey of different salmon, tuna, caviar, sea urchin, eel, and more from all over the world. Come hungry as there were 13+ pieces. I recommend the sushi bar experience as it is much more intimate and enjoyable, the chef explains each and every piece and where it is from, as well as the waiter to give you a fully immersive experience. One of the best sushi restaurants I have ever been to!
Great! It was awesome
Incredible Omakase. Service was impeccable. Sake pairing was a delight.
Amazing. Nothing more needs to be said
Overall the food and service were excellent. There was a bug that was loose in the sushi bar that kind of dampened the mood.
Best Sushi in NYC, been coming there since inception and always the best
Absolutely magnificent. Highest quality sushi in the city
Eating at Sushi Nakazawa was a great experience. The fish was super fresh, the staff and chefs were friendly , knowledgeable, and helped create a welcoming environment to enjoy the fantastic sushi.
Food and service was awesome. Best sushi I’ve had!
Worth it! The service was impeccable. Sitting at the sushi bar was an experience in itself. It was nice to watch the chefs at work and interacting with each other and the guests. It was our first omakase and most definitely not our last. The selection was super fresh and I have to say, Sushi Nakazawa definitely set the bar for the future omakase dinners we’ll be partaking in.
There is Sushi Nakazawa, and then everything else.
The kind of place that make you joyfully tear up one bite at a time. I mean it. It make you want to cry. You feel the love and passion behind everything served. Hate to sound pretentious, but since you are gonna spend some hard cash, I would only recommend this place to Sushi experienced and discerning foodies.
The only thing better than the extraordinary meal was the exceptional service :)
Our chef and our waitress were so attentive. Every detail was thought of. Best salmon, hand roll, uni, unagi, and tomato I’ve ever had. O-toro and wagyu are exactly what you want them to be. Wonderful night!!
Sublime and magical on every level!!!!
Excellent sushi and first class service. Thank you
Great sushi in a lovely setting. Fish quality was excellent and the wine pairing was good. Loved the waiting area and discovered you could in that spot without a reservation.
Menu solo con niguiri....los niguiri nuy buenos, pero excesivo poner 20 piezas sin nada mas. El trato deja mucho que desear; si no vas a gastar dolares o eres una celebrity olvidate de que se caractericen por el mimo hacia el cliente. Muy caro para lo que es y lo peor: que tengan una politica de cancelacion donde si tienes un imprevisto y no asistes te cobren 150 dolares por comensal...esta totalmente sobreestimado.
The best sushi experience of your life. Period.
Amazing experience and environment; informative and caring staff and, of course, incredible sushi.
My father and I came here for a special occasion. This was perhaps the best meal I have ever had.
One of the best omakase experiences I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy. The fish was super fresh, and even though I didn’t get to dine under chef nakazawa personally, all the sushi chefs working behind the bar were super attentive.
Very good though on expensive side.
Absolutely the best sushi/meal I’ve ever had.
We sat at the bar and it was incredible! Wonderful experience all around. Will definitely come back soon.
It was awesome.
I've been to various omakase restaurants before and Sushi Nakazawa was great. The highlights were the three cuts of toro (akami, chutoro, otoro), two types of uni, and Miyazaki A5 Wagyu beef nigiri. I was a little bit disappointed that Chef Nakazawa himself was not there, however the Chef Katsushi Sakai was great too. The waitress did an excellent job explaining every piece of nigiri. Overall it was a great experience to watch these chefs make sushi in front of your eyes with precision and it was worth every dollar.
I've been here before, the food is amazing as usual.
The best sushi we have ever had. The service is incredible - the plate had barely touched the bar before the staff was over to explain the dish
Amazing sushi, service and omakase. Loses one star for charging us for wagyu, which I specifically said we did not want when booking (no red meat). The waiter forgot to mention the special charge till the bill arrived and only one person ate red meat in my party. There was plenty of food otherwise. All the sushi was excellent and the service impeccable. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Definitely sit at the sushi bar if you can!
Haven’t been here since 2013 and it was everything I remembered. Fish was extremely fresh. Had some of my favorites from when I first came and now I have some more to add to the list. The head chef was a delight and even accommodated my fiancé with her videos of him preparing the sushi. Everything was so amazing that we ended up ordering additional pieces at the end of our favorites.
Service was on point. Never did I have to ask for more water. The moment I looked over, someone would already be there to help.
Unbelievable food and service
Best sushi experience so far at sushi bar. Great food, great service, watching the chief making sushi is quite fun
One of the best dining experience we’ve ever had!
I sat at the sushi bar for lunch. I’ve enjoyed sushi all over the world and this experience was by far the most outstanding. The courses were amazing. The service was spot on. They meticulously described every piece that was put in front of me. I will definitely be back!
