What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

For us, there are few culinary pleasures in life that exceed sushi bar swagging at Sushi of Gari, watching an old master fish sculptor slice up some heavenly creations destined for our bellies. Unfortunately, this Gari location is our least favorite yet.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

I was in town for business, and I decided to have Gari. The Tribeca location is by far my favorite. They seated me at the sushi bar upstairs, and I got to have a chef right in front of me as his only customer. He took me on a journey. The sushi presentation is a work of art, and his juxtaposition of differing flavors was amazing. In addition, I don’t know if my water or sake glasses ever got below half full. Outstanding service! And all for a really reasonable price for NYC high end sushi.

I am a huge Sushi of Gari fan but the food was sub par on this occasion. The fish was too cold and was not the same quality that it normally is.

I’ve always enjoyed gari- though this was my first time in the TriBeCa location. The food continues to be solid, though i don’t think it’s nearly as good as downtown favorites blue ribbon or Nobu.

The room is very basic- light wood walls and tables. The issue was with the “rules”.

As part of our meal, we ordered two salads. They were basic but come with excellent dressing. Unfortunately, it’s a tiny portion of this dressing. When I asked for a little more, I was informed there would be a fee. I found this laughable. The excuse was “we make it in house”. As opposed to what, ordering it from gristedes?

We ran into this again, when our maki was brought out. My friend asked for some spicy mayo. We were informed there was a charge associated with that.

Overall feedback- don’t charge $200 for dinner and nickel and dime your guests on salad dressing and side sauce.

The edamame was cold and unsalted. The sashimi deluxe platter was mediocre. The maki and pieces were very good, though the tuna and tofu piece was chewy and the worst it has ever been at gari.

FYI the fee for both were more than a beer.

I went for a date with my boyfriend—it was not a date kind of sushi spot. Lots of families, very bright, and very quiet. sushi was great and service ok. Would not recommend for a date. Great for families.

Tried to redeem an OpenTable gift card here and went through all of the prompts. Somewhere along the way, either OpenTable of the restaurant screwed up and didn't take the gift card. Ruined our anniversary and a rare night out for a couple of first-time parents. Pretty disgusted with either or both parties and feel that this needs to be rectified immediately.

Sushi was great though.

For a place that caliber, there were no specialty roll, only standard one and the items were really not exotic. The menu was neither exhaustive nor eclectic compared to other Sushi or Gari location. The rolls were also quite small. This location just does not appeal to a date or dinner with friends as it has no personality. I will say that service was courteous but with the competition in the neighborhood I will not come back.

The hostesses was pretty rude. Theyhad lots of empty tables when we got there at 6pm but when we asked to sit at a different table she said we can’t because she had reservations coming in. When we left those tables were still empty. The doors were open and Con Edison was drilling outside. For the prices you’re much better off going to Nobu two blocks away. Did they change the spicy scallop roll it used to be so much better.

Sushi of Gari in Tribeca is one of our absolute favorite restaurants in NYC after fourteen years of living here. We have only ever done the omakase which you must experience if possible. The atmosphere is press down and even plain, but the food more than makes up for it. Each bite is an innovative explosion of deliciousness. The service is good if not great. It is quite expensive and worth every penny for the special experience you will have.

This is my family's second time eating here in less than a month. The sushi is amazing, fresh and served by a wonderful wait staff. Even the desert is incredible (mille crepes cake is fantastic). The place is small, not sure if there is an upstairs so if you are coming with children please be aware its small on the 1st floor. We, unfortunately, sat next to a family with 1 younger child who was loud and not well behaved. Fortunately, they left shortly after we were served our dinner. We were our own child who noted how disruptive the child was not Gari's fault. Only other pet peeve - wine by the glass is quite expensive even by New York standards. With all this said, we will return again because of the food and service are incredible.

We didn’t get our seats until 20 minutes after our reservation time. If not because I unhappily talked to the manager about the situation, we might wait for another 20 minutes. They should handle the situation better.

This place takes sushi to a new level. There are several locations throughout NYC. I've only been to this Tribeca location. The restaurant is small, tiny in fact. There is standard seating on the main floor and some outdoor seating. Upstairs there is seating at the sushi bar. I believe you have to get the Omakase tasting menu if you're seated upstairs at the sushi bar. I HIGHLY recommend it! The Omakase menu, though expensive, was outstanding. Creative and incredibly tasty selections prepared by a personal sushi chef. None of these items were on the regular menu. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Truly an amazing experience. Very highly recommended.

Sushi was excellent, my favorite was the tomatillo sushi, I don’t recall if it was yellowtail or albacore but it was great, and spicy. Salmon tomato and toro tofu are the most popular and also good. I’ll be back!
