food beautifully presented. at times during the meal I would have appreciated people around talking less loudly.But that has little to do with the great
food and service. I love this place.

Sushi Yasaka serves deliciously fresh and high quality sashimi and sushi rolls in addition to the other delicious items on their menu. It is our favorite sushi place in NYC and we look forward to going back again and again!

First time, great sushi at a casual, low key place. Not for business dinners, but great for you and your special other when you really want sushi on a weekday night.

Great place for lunch and diner
Nothing pretentious ! Just great quality fish and food at a great price
It’s why I come back again and pass on the word
The only point they should look at :
They always run out of premium beer and sake
And gave me the same excuse than a month ago
But if manager is smart he or her should resolve easy the lake of supply on sake and beer

It’s no longer what it used to be. they didn’t even have most of the sakes on the menu. They couldn’t do the omakase (chefs choice), not sure why not. We live 2 blocks away and have been there before when it was good. This time it was for a birthday celebration, that we shared with them. The birthday wasn’t even mentioned or acknowledge. Don’t bother going there.

The food in general was of very good quality, although only the fatty tuna had exceptional quality. We ordered two Akadashi Miso soups, two mini omakase, two pieces of ikura and two pieces of uni. We ordered half a bottle of regular sake. We paid 150 dlls plus tip. The ambience was not good because it was very noisy and because the manager -who did not have exactly Japanese manners- was verbally abusing a poor nice female waiter in front of us. The abuse is unacceptable by all means and also very uncomfortable for customers which are celebrating. By manager I mean the man at the cashier. I am not sure uf he was an oficial manager. He should be removed.

The restaurant has separated the tables with greater distance which makes for more comfortable/safer indoor dining. The sushi is always top-notch. Wait staff was attentive.

Quality and customer service was excellent. The only issue was they do not allow you to Taylor the menu - all orders are right off the menu. - I do have to say the quality and taste was very good

The sushi is excellent. We also had the miso black cod appetizer for the first time, which was superb -- the cod practically melted in your mouth. Everything was delicious!

The sushi bar hasn't reopened yet, unfortunately. We were celebrating our anniversary and hoping to try it. We both did the small omakase, and we loved every bite. It was also more than either of us could eat. I'm not sure how one person could do the large omakase. Granted, we had the gyoza and the yellowfin tuna appetizers, but... :) The prices were really reasonable as well. This will be a regular place for us.

This was our first time here. The food was very good and the service was basically fine but the reception especially was just surly. It is small inside and lots of take out/delivery activity. But very good food, nice wine
