We were looking for great sushi at a reasonable price, and Sushi of Gari 46 came through for us. We ordered two sashimi platters, the regular and the special, to increase our variety and to compare the quality. Both were excellent, but the special truly was special--the finest, melt-in-your mouth cuts, bursting with flavor.

This is not inexpensive dining, but the cost felt reasonable to us, so it was a good value. Highly recommended for a special occasion.

The sushi was delicious but we felt rushed by the server which, to be fair, was probably not his fault as the omakase came out too fast. We hadn’t finished one plate before another had arrived. For what we paid to be so rushed was disappointing.

Hi There,
I had an incredibly strange experience at this restaurant last night. We attended the restaurant based on the full menu we saw on OpenTable, excited about getting a few rolls and pieces of sashimi. We were sat and never given the a la Carte menu so we were incredibly confused to be given a partial menu that offered hot foods and Omakase options. After ordering a drink, my Husband and I just kept looking through the menu very confused at where rolls were. We couldn't flag down the waiter for a while, only when we asked where all the rolls were listed, we were told "oh so you want the a la carte menu?" If we have never been to the restaurant before, how would we know to ask that?? Once we FINALLY received the menu, we placed an order for 3 rolls and 4 pieces of sashimi to start. I asked for gluten free soy sauce (I have celiacs disease) and was told at that point that ALL rolls have gluten as it's in the rice. As an avid sushi eater who frequents Japanese restaurants, I have NEVER experienced that- and I always ask. I was unable to eat ANYTHING on the menu aside from sashimi, and couldn't even eat the eel one I ordered as I told it contained gluten as well. We had to cancel the whole order, and our sake had already come and the sashimi had been put in. The waiter was very kind about the whole situation, but We would have just left had the sake and sashimi not arrived. It was a really awful and uncomfortable experience, and we paid $60 with tip for 1 sake and 4 pieces of Sashimi. That is ridiculously steep, and we had to leave and find another Japanese restaurant- one which provided us with the full menu upon being seated, and one which had food I could eat. The whole experience was strange and uncomfortable. I'm beyond upset we paid $60 with tip to leave hungry and have to find another restaurant to eat at.

Food was great and our server was very helpful in explaining everything we had and steering us through choices. The venue is a little noisy and not a romantic or even quiet setting. I would come back because of the great food.

Food was great and service was efficient. However the restaurant has adopted so many rules that seem to be for its own convenience rather than its customers. Hard to dine post theater since it now closes so early which seems odd for restaurant in theater district.

Very good sushi and service, I would return. (I'm keeping the fifth star for the really superb). Prices made sense except for the saki offerings which were all marked way up; they need to have at least a few more modest choices, instead I took nothing so where's the win in that for them?

It's never going to be the most economical sushi, and that's completely fine. The food is superb, the wine list varied and pairable, and the service understated but responsive. Simply cannot go wrong here.

Love Sushi of Gari. Excellent quality and food but this location in particular feels a bit cramped and service is sped up due to theatre going customers. I would recommend the UWS or TriBeCa locations for a more leisurely meal.

Went here because it is close to theaters and had good reviews and good reputation. The service was good but a little rushed. We were in and out in 30 min with the chef tasting ($300 for a party of two). The food was very underwhelming and have been to much better for the price. I would not recommend this place for the price and other options in the city. We will not be back.

This place had a fun ambiance, but for customers expecting a traditional sushi menu this place will throw you for a Loop. They push their chef tasting menu which I am sure must be great but they don't mention the a la carts menu with more classic rolls unless pushed on it. Also heads up the cucumber roll is wrapped in seaweed with a little kick! Overall the food was yummy!

The sushi was very good as was the rest of our food. But service was rushed. Felt like they were trying to turn over the table quickly. Noisy space with no privacy at all between tables. I wouldnt return as there are many better places to get high quality sushi in NYC

Delicious food. I felt flavors were very delicate, compared to other similar spots. A unique culinary experience and one of the best I have had in NYC. Prepare your wallet though. It has also been one of the most expensive ones.

I'm a Japanese and like sushi. Their ingredients are ok not excellent. They added salt, apple puree and vinegar miso and so on. I understand their concept that they give us new combination of some ingredients in the sushi field.
if you seek new feeling of sushi and can pay huge extra cost against their try, you should go there. if you want to eat more authentic Japanese sushi, you must not go to this restaurant.

This restaurant is over-rated. It offers solid, but not outstanding, sushi. Unfortunately, the sushi is often garnishes with all sorts of stuff which overpowers the taste of the fish. The pieces are on the small side and the presentation did not overwhelm. The restaurant décor is simple and somewhat outdated. Tables are small and closely stacked next to each other, making it difficult to have a conversation. I don't mind the restaurant but at $400 for a two-person dinner, it is quite simply not worth it. The price-quality relationship is far off. Maybe a 50 percent reduction in price would align this ratio. There are many better options in Manhattan.
