Food is really the best thing about this place, which is very cozy. Service can be improved, but I understand that it is always full of people.

Prices have increased quite a bit over last couple of years. Service is so rushed as if they went to get you fed and done which also changes the ambiance to rushed. Sushi is still delicious! Host staff acts like they are doing you a favor letting you eat at their restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Our table was available on time, the service was prompt and the sushi was top notch. You could not ask for much better from a local neighborhood place, convenient to Lincoln Center. It was a good value as well! Definitely ready to go back on my next visit to NY.

The sushi is outstanding and the value is great, also, but the noise level is off the charts.
There probably isn’t much that can be done since the space is below ground with low ceilings.

We had a reservation at 6:30, but had to wait for 13 minutes until
seated. The same thing happened last time. Apparently, they take too many reservations for a short period of time. It’s called overbooking! Food is good for the price, but their service has deteriorated since the restaurant opened. I ate there on the second day of the restaurant as I live across the street. It’s sad. Not sure if I want to recommend it to my friends anymore..

Always love going there and the food is reliably fresh. Need a reservation for dinner, even on a Wednesday evening packed and people keep arriving. They don’t rush their clients but there is a lot of coming and going so you know it is good. People of all ages go there. One of our favorites and only sushi we eat on Upper West Side!

I have been here a few times and the fish quality is excellent. The Tuna Avocado is one of my favorites, just the right balance of savory and wasabi.

Recently remodeled for the better since it is more comfortable. The food is uniformly good and a very good value. Mostly raw fish there are enough cooked items including Tempura that will make it a good place to eat for those eschewing raw products. At dinner a reservation is a must.

Fish is great. I got the Omakase sushi set, and was pleasantly surprised how good the quality of fish was. Unfortunately they didn’t do a good job with the rice... it was too hard and doesn’t match up to the quality of the fish. Service was just ok.

I hesitate to add to the all ready glowing reviews as it may influence the reader to go, making reservations/wait times increasingly more difficult......but it was great. We had a reservation for three and we had to wait about 10 minutes and then seats at the bar opened up so we opted for that position over waiting longer for a table. The bar worked great for us and we could see the 4 chefs working. Services was great, food super, and I even enjoyed the Moche dessert!
