Simply amazing food! It’s expensive but so worth every dollar. Make it special occasion or your most important client. - I get to go once a year and look forward to that meal more than Thanksgiving dinner! Do the chefs selection - hands down you will not be disappointed.

I am a regular at Sushi of Gari (Upper West Side location). The sushi is outstanding. However, service at the 46 Street location was terrible. Waiter was rude, and they kicked us out of the restaurant so that they could close it.

The menu is not clear, they have specials off of the menu which I only found out about mid-meal. Also, the toro was smelly and very expensive for not being very fresh. Lastly, they rush you through your dinner, its hard to enjoy when you don't feel like you're that welcome there.

They rushed out as soon as we go there- and we arrived on time. Said they had to turn the table over. Also the fish did not seem fresh and we thought perhaps it was more-slices, it came really fast

I have always liked Sushi Gari but this time felt different. The place looked tired, the food was just ok.
I can’t say anything bad, but wasn’t the same experience I have had every time I have been there.
I felt for the price I paid, I could have gotten a much better experience somewhere else.

Not much to look at but some of the best sushi that you'll find in the city. Tucked into the lower level of a 19th century brownstone on 46th, this unassuming place will wow your senses with great Japanese cuisine. The thing to head here for though is the sushi and sashimi. It's some of the freshest and best seafood available. The fatty tuna is to die for as well as the salmon. We ordered the special sushi and special sashimi and were wowed by the quality and quantity of fish. Things can get pricey here, especially if you indulge in some of the high end sakis on the drinks menu. There is even a bottle for $5K!!! However, a judicious diner can enjoy a great meal here without breaking the bank. Reservations are a must. They also do the traditional omakase where the meter is running until you cry uncle. The sushi chef will make selections and keep them coming. Dining quarters are tight so you'll be pretty friendly with your neighbors.

This was my 2nd time at Sushi of Gari. We ordered the chefs special selections and were again delighted with the creativity and presentation of our sushi. The fish is fresh fresh with that perfect texture that I rarely find in other restaurants. I wish we had such fine sushi in CT.

We sat down @5:15pm for dinner and were able to arrived early for our 7pm show. The food was good, but was quite expensive. My husband and son each ordered the chef menu which offered 12 small pieces of assorted sushi. The price was $110 each. A couple of pieces were really good, but the majority was just OK.

The food was really good, fish was phenomenal! Tastes so fresh and perfectly made, my compliments to the chef. The service was good considering the restaurant was small so they could immediately tell when we needed something. My only gripe was our waitress had an extremely strong accent... I’m never one to complain about this seeing as my family were all immigrants and I understand how hard it can be to learn English. But it was extremely hard to understand our waitress, I felt bad because I know she was trying as best as she could, but I couldn’t make out 98 percent of what she said.

Food was great. We are repeat Gari customers and recommend it. We did Omakase at the counter, and I am gluten free so I am a bit difficult. Chef was accommodating but when options ran out he started to ask me what to repeat/what I wanted next. I suggested something (can you do something with uni and scallop?) chef just said no. I do Omakase because I don’t want to think about it. If you start asking me what to make (which annoys me a bit in first place,) why not try?

Very little food and what we got was not overly impressive. Server was nice but I couldn't hear her at all (had to keep asking her to repeat herself). If I had paid $ i would have been ok with it but $$ I felt severely short changed. I would not recommend this to anyone.
