Great service, even better food. The best sushi in New York easily, if not America. Try it at least once and it will change your perspective on food entirely.

After watching Jiro dreams of sushi and the fact that Nakazawa now has a star, my expectations going into this meal we’re very high. While many pieces were tasty, for the price there are better omakase experiences in the city. Exceptional attention to detail is lacking. Moths flying around the bar and Ikea cabinetry take away from what should be a refined experience. The publicly in the press seems to draw tourists rather than local regulars.

Our 50th bdays celebration was well noted. We got some extra uní and bday candles in our lychee sorbet! Missed Nakazawa San, but didn’t expect to see him on a Monday. A great special occasion place that spoils sushi eating anywhere else.

Food itself is high quality and sake also very tasty. Delicious. But somehow doesn’t match my expectation. Chef seems not pay attention enough.

La miglior cena a base di sushi della mia vita, una delle migliori cene in assoluto.
Dimenticate i pur buoni uramaki fusion e colorati di alcune rinomate catene milanesi.
Qui c'è la più pura tradizione del sushi in forma di nighiri.
Non dovete scegliere nulla, solo sedervi al bancone (possibilmente, perché è certamente più interessante di una cena al tavolo), guardare i maestri al lavoro, ascoltare il nome del piatto in giapponese, prontamente tradotto in inglese dalla cameriera alle vostre spalle e poi gustare ad occhi chiusi.
OK, non è cheap, ma non è neanche un ristorante qualsiasi. Il servizio è di alto livello e la qualità eccezionale. Nessun serata al giapponese sarà più la stessa, dopo questa esperienza!

The sushi bar was a fantastic experience. Every piece of sushi was unbelievable, the sake carefully selected and the service was impeccable. I was worried it might be a bit stuffy but everyone was so kind and welcoming. It was truly memorable.

EVERY SINGLE TIME we come here, we are transported, healed, fed and showered with the best attention.

This is food as art in its highest form.

We are extra grateful to Chef for remembering us and welcoming us and to Anthony Arvin for the spectacular wine journey on Monday night. THANK YOU THANK YOU! We cannot wait to come back.

Fantastic Sushi experience! Highly recommend this if you want a five star omakase experience from an experienced staff! We've been here many times and every single time is an amazing experience! Wish we could post the entire course but definitely get any and all add-ons if you only plan on going here once!

As a huge Sushi Nakazawa fan, I was more than excited to take my brother to lunch at the sushi bar for his birthday. I was lucky to eat here last year and had an absolutely fantastic experience - which made me even more dissapointed in my most recent experience. My brother has celiac disease, which can be an issue at other restaurants, but Sushi Nakazawa reassured us that accommodating his dietary restrictions would not be an issue - we made sure to call ahead of time, remind the host, and checked with our waiter twice. But unfortunately, within an hour after eating, my brother was extremely sick. We had the same exact meal and I was completely fine. When you're paying the prices that you do at Sushi Nakazawa, and have been reassured that they can handle customers with celiac, it's quite frustrating when they fail to do so. The next day I called the restaurant to let them know what happened and the host kindly said they would have management follow-up, but 2 weeks have passed and I haven't heard anything - not even an apology. Shocking when you expect high quality customer service from a restaurant of this quality. This truly is an amazing sushi restaurant, but if you have dietary restrictions, eat at your own risk.

I had 7pm dinner at the bar with my husband for our anniversary. Our dinner experience was first and foremost time well spent together, made sweeter by the cozy ambiance, tasty omakase, delightful tea, and thoughtful service. We enjoyed watching the chefs at work and our exchanges with the staff were brief. If this is the kind of thing your after, go for it. Looking forward to our next meal at Sushi Nakazawa!
