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.

Everything was incredible. The only small thing and reason why I gave service a 4 not 5 was I felt rushed by my servers to order, water, a drink, and appetizer - 3 separate instances.

Sushi is great quality. Drink prices, however, especially for sake, are extremely high.

Sushi of Gari is never less than excellent and most often is magnificent. The Omakase offering, bite for bite, is pure delight. Haven't tried anything else here but based on the freshness and top quality of the sushi, as well as the artistry of the sushi chefs, I recommend it without hesitation to anyone who hankers for an authentic Japanese culinary experience.

The omakase at Sushi of Gari Tribeca was not worth it. Most of the sushi selections were average and the 2 salmon pieces were ordinary, I would not have chosen them. My friend told the server she didn’t like uni, which I love, but the chef took the easy way out and made us the same exact 12 piece offerings. Gari on the UES was always creative, I’ve found my experiences at Gari 46 and Tribeca unexciting. With new comers like Sushi by M offering good and reasonably priced omakase, Gari needs to lift their game.

This is my second visit in a week for the omakase dinner at the sushi bar. Last week I went with two friends and when it was discovered they were allergic to gluten and could not have sushi, the waitress suggested the sashimi dinner which they enjoyed very much. Fish is absolutely fresh and the chefs have wonderful skills with the knife -- each piece melts in the mouth. I highly recommend Sushi of Gari and can't wait to return.

I have been going to Gari on UWS and UES for several years!! TriBeCa was terrible - the omakase was no where near the quality it should have been. So disappointed. We all were.

We had a great time dining at Sushi of Gari. We were greeted kindly by the hostess who seated us promptly upstairs for the chef tasting omakase. Our waitress did a great job recommending different types of sake and explaining the omakase process. Each piece was crafted to perfection. Our favorite was the fluke with poached quail egg and truffle oil! We had an amazing experience and will be back soon!

There are so many good sushi places in NYC that I'm not usually that excited about any single one of them but the food here really was noticeably amazing. My only complaint would be that the bathroom is in a weird location and if you're sitting at one of the two tables right in front of the bathroom there's a lot of foot traffic past your table.

I ate upstairs at the Sushi Omakase counter. very creative and delicious combinations that I had never eaten. You can let them know what you like so they can tailor the menu to suit your taste. It's relaxing not to have to choose and also to be surprised by inventive pieces of sushi. Very expensive, but if you just want to chill out and have a delicious and relaxing experience I highly recommend!!!

They mistakenly charged me for the most expensive sake on the menu. I’ve never once ordered this sake and I’ve been to this location 20 times.

Would not take the sake off the bill, and claimed my client ordered the bottle without my knowledge.

The omakase isn’t exceptional as always. We were seated near the door, next to the hostess station which got crowded very quickly. It’s not the most comfortable seating. It was alright since we were only going for a quick meal.

This location of Sushi of Gari is pedestrian. The omekase is O Ya style, with lots of sauces that, well composed, can elevate the fish. Poorly composed or overly sauced, and they obscure and drown the flavor of what was very nice nigiri (I’m looking at you, salmon with warm tomatoes on top). The small omekase bar upstairs was overlit, the service was fine but a little slapdash, and the price was definitely expense account territory. Omekase is by the piece and we stopped short of our usual not long after that salmon mouthful, and it was still $350 with sake and tip.
