I can't say enough for Sushi Yasaka. Probably the best sushi I've ever had, including my time in NYC. The flavors were not rudimentary but not overly complex and the freshness was incredible. The texture was by far the best I've had. On a slightly critical note, the woman answering the phone revealed that they couldn't hold my seat longer than 15min due to train delays because they were planning on rotating the table 1hr later. We were rushing to another event after so the efficiency wasn't a problem, however the expectation made me feel like we couldn't take our time and enjoy the incredible meal.

Met up with some old friends - kind of a reunion. Staff at the restaurant were very accommodating as we were slow and loud(!) and asked them to take photos! Lovely. Highly recommended for a casual, yummy meal...

Sushi Deluxe is one of the best buy set menu in the NY.

Fried Oyster was so tiny, it was a little disappointment.

Softshell club roll was one of the best I have ever eaten.

This was my first time having sushi in NYC, and it was amazing. I've had good sushi in Japan, and I believe this is comparable. Next time I'm in NYC I will be back.

We had to wait about 10min even though we were on time for our reservation. There was a crowd at the entrance also waiting for their reserved tables to get ready. The staff at the entrance was not very pleasant. The restaurant looks very nice from the entrance, but there was a bit of a fishy smell right away (understandable because of the food it serves, but the smell was more vivid than I’ve experienced in other sushi restaurants. However once we were seated, our servers were extremely friendly. Food was served quickly and it was DELICIOUS. Would definitely recommend, but hope that they can improve the experience at the entrance!!

The food & atmosphere were awesome! I had the shrimp & avocado salad and salmon sushi - so delicious! My daughter had the special miso soup and shrimp tempura and salmon rolls. The food was super fresh & service and so attentive. Would definitely go back. Restaurant is a short walk from the Beacon Theatre.

Great lunch, great sushi. A little disappointed that they were out of the wine on their menu, however the overall experience was very good as it always is. Had the 3 roll lunch special with soup.

The sushi is above average, but don't go here looking for much more than a good, quick meal. We were in and out in 45 minutes. Price is a bit steep for this kind of dining experience.

Too crowded, even at lunch on a weekday. I ordered the lunch special chirashi and felt cheated. Two large pieces of tamago (egg omlette) and lots of roe and a limp cooked shrimp were among the 14 pieces. Meh. I wanted fish and fish and nothing but. I should have ordered the sashimi platter instead. And I got white rice, which I cannot eat. Brown wasn't offered. Other fish pieces were fine. Service was fast. But it's sooooo noisy in the restaurant. And if you walk in without a reservation, the wait would be intolerable. Thankfully, I did think ahead and made an OpenTable res.

At 7 PM on a busy Friday night, we scored a table and enjoyed first rate Japanese dishes at fair (not inexpensive) prices. Particularly delicious was the seaweed salad appetizer, and the sashimi deluxe plattar.. Lobster roll also got good reviews. Highly recommended.
