I feel a little uncomfortable when our waitress told us that we couldn’t drink the beverage from outside, the truth is that my friend just put it on the table because she needed space for her bag. And our waitress was overact and cause my friend felt embarrassed.

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 The restaurant décor is simple and somewhat outdated.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.

The fish is incredibly fresh. You really need to just get the omakase at this spot. Service is good , but not exactly friendly. I don't mind this personally but some may be put off. I go for the fish quality and authenticity.

Loved the original Sushi of Gari when it was a hole in wall on UES. It’s since morphed into a bit more creative sushi away from traditional fresh sushi. Still good but nothing really special anymore since there are so many good sushi joints in NYC these days. Overall good sushi but decor is average and not outstanding at the price point especially for onakase.

Horrible service. It was literally as if we were not even there. Then the server asked for a PIN number for my credit card and he proceeded to input the wrong pin, thereby causing credit card company to shut my card off and forcing me to spend 2 days on hold with the credit card company in order to regain use of my credit card. I go there for lunch all the time. I expect a lot more than this. I guess since it was theater hour I was deemed a tourist. Very disturbing.

Our second visit this month and of the fifteen pieces of sushi, we had only two repeats from our last visit. Absolutely delicious flavors. Definitely a regular go to spot albeit a pricey one.

Really fantastic meal here with my family last Saturday night. Portion of the omakase was perfectly filling, as was their adventurous flavors associated with each piece of fish. Pricey, but worth it if you’re willing to pay good $ for sushi

The Omakase was not as special and as surprising as it use to be. For the price we paid the creativity was not worth it. We could have gone to Blue Sushi Ribbon and had us stuffed.

Have had delicious fresh sushi in my day but Chef Gari’s Omikase was superb. We had 15 pieces of originally prepared sushi and did not add one drop of soy sauce. Each piece had its own sauce or added flavor. The house sake was delicious, as well. This will become a regular spot for lunch or dinner.

I think they've since this summer may have changed their chef. We've frequented this restaurant pretty every two months or so when in the mood for quick sushi in the times square area. However, on this day, both their chirashi and the omakase was less than mediocre, disappointing us. Unless I hear from someone of a better experience, I would not go again.

The worst Omikase I've had in 6 countries. And yet, the most expensive. Chef has almost no grasp of the complexities of texture in sushi and sashimi. Quality of protein was exceptionally low and we were repeatedly lied to about what we were being served. Stewed tomatoes slopped on top of spicy tuna.... we paid $400.00 (2 omikase, 1 bottle of 6x markup wine and tip) to suffer.

Service was polite and competent.

In closing, it was spontaneously said at my table, "This is worse than being at work and we are paying to be here." The table next to us nodded vigorously in agreement.

Omakase was excellent. Portions were perfectly fine though we ordered four more rolls at the end specifically for the scallops which was not included in the original set. The room was busy though not noisy, lighting was warm and brighter than the usual restaurant scene, and very crowded for a weekday.

Delicious sushi - my complaint is that it was too crowded and chaotic, service was not attentive. it took a long time just to get water. They insisted on bringing us the sake even before we ordered food. I usually order omakase. Unlike other nearby sushi restaurants, it seems rushed for a very expensive meal. I've been a few times and my friend and I decided we probably won't go back. The restaurant is in the theater district but closes about the same time most shows close, which eliminates it from the places we can go after a show. this time we went around 9:30 but still felt like the omakase was too rushed for such an expensive meal.
