Great food, great staff
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!
BEST sushi ever!
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 sushi, reasonably priced--a neighborhood gem
Good as always! Thank you so much for providing the best sushi around!
Sushi was fresh and good quality. Restaurant is noisy.
Yasaka never disappoints! Great sushi at a good value!
Neighborhood favorite spot. Can’t beat the lunch deals.
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
Simply AMAZING! Out of all the amazing sushi places I’ve been to in LA, DC, and Boston this place ranks at the near top! What a gem of a find!
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 sushi was just great and the servers are pleasant and very efficient.
Delicious and fresh, lunch combos are a steal.
Great food and service.
Our absolute favorite sushi place of all time. Never fails to amaze.
Everything was outstanding
Best sushi in nyc!
Unquestionable the freshest fish and most attractively prepared plates. This is our go to place!
As always, consistently superior in all categories. Food is exquisite, presentation superb, staff are highly professional and conscientious. Lovely experience.
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.
Yasaka is probably the best sushi you can get in NYC. Always fresher than fresh, absolutely delicious--I could eat there every night. Soooo good.
It was great as always. Our favorite sushi place on the UWS.
Best quality/price sushi in the city and wonderful, unrushed service.
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!
Excelente lugar, la comida, la atención de los meseros, los precios, un lugar muy recomendable!!
The food here is amazing. Fresh and delicious. Not the fanciest dining - but we didn’t even care because sushi was so good.
Amazing lunch deals even on weekends! Fresh fish & good portions.
Very good food!!
Excellent food and service.
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 place is the best. My go to for sushi on the upper west side.
Super lunch. Rolls were very fresh and just the perfect amount of rice. Waitress was accommodating to my friend who is vegetarian offering suggestions. Would certainly come back.
Their good standard went down unfortunately.
And the pricing fir drinks is too high for their ambiance and being a casual restaurant.
I love this restaurant. Great food. Good environment. Clean. Affordable and a Michelin star. So fabulous. Going back next week.
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
