This sushi restaurant is one of the best values for the quality of their sushi, The sushi is fresh and very high quality. The appetizers are delicious and the menu is varied. I would whole-heartedly recommend Sushi Yasaka to anyone looking for a great sushi restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
It was awesome!
Great food. We had Usuzukuri, sashimi combo, and nigiri combo, as well as sake and one other appetizer (mushrooms). Fish was all fresh and delicious. Service was good enough, too. The price was very reasonable. We'll definitely go back when we're in NY again.
Almost same quality and taste in Japan. If you prefer authentic sushi, Yasaka is the place to come.
Always so good
High quality sushi, but crowded, noisy, dark, and not particularly friendly.
It was my girlfriend’s bday and the food and service was great! Our waiter really helped us choose the best sushi that fits our liking. I will recommend this place to all friends and family!
The quality of the fish is SO good there. You need to book though to get a table (and even if you book be a bit patient)
Service was great, selections were extensive. Food was prepared beautifully. Highly recommended!
Excellent sushi. Great staff. You can't go wrong if you want great sushi.
Food and service always great. Noisy and long wait even with reservation. But overall worth it.
Great Upper West Side neighborhood sushi spot. Crowded. Omakase at sushi bar is good and the prices are excellent. Very nice sake menu. Reservations recommended.
Fish is exceptional
Love the food. Good service. Make reservations!
Excellent food but service felt rush as entrees arrived almost immediately after we ordered.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. Sometimes I crave it so much that I just get in a cab and go--just don't try that at dinnertime because without a reservation there's no chance of getting a table. Freshest fish ever. Lovely waitstaff. They've even found a better Pinot Grigio, if wine is your preferred sushi drink.
High quality fish and reasonable prices. Very nice service.
There was hair and plastic in our food
Consistently excellent and fresh food.
Great service and value for money.
Great service and food recommendations were helpful for first time visit.
Sushi Yasaka is a wonderful restaurant. I’ve eaten there about 15 times and I love it every time! I always get the lunchbox and I get tofu steak. It’s a real treat! Great value. I highly recommend it.
Great! I love to go here with my gf. We always have a great time here.
Prompt service, delicious food

Great experience as usual, good service, fresh food
Best and most reasonable sushi on the UWS! So happy it's in the neighborhood!
Amazing food and service. Will definitely come back!
Amazing food. Restaurant is always hot though, so don't overdress.
This place is fabulous! My friend and I had the lunchbox. We loved it. Huge amount of food! It was all good.
Always fresh fish, great selection, and friendly service. This is our favorite place for sushi!
We went on a Sunday night and the sushi was very fishy and had an off-putting taste. We had been there before and everything was delicious so maybe it was an off night. We had sashimi and two rolls and everything tasted weird. When we told the waitress she just said ok and did not do anything else. We then just got the check and left. They did not acknowledge that anything was wrong.
Fantastic - soup was a good on a damp dark evening! Would love to go again and again but it is always booked full.
Great sushi and affordable spot in UWS.
Great, delicious, authentic sushi. Friendly service.
We have been coming to SY for a couple of years. The food is always excellent and incredibly consistent. The service, on the other hand has been been friendly but highly variable. They tend to bring everything at once when ordering a few apps for example. Tend to want you out of their hair close to closing time. We were served by AJ this last time and found him to be on the ball and fastidious. A breath of fresh air. Hire more like him. Keep up with the great food!
This is one of my favorite sushi places. The food and service are always good regardless of the time of day and how crowded it is. They are flexible in terms of additions and substitutions on platters. Would recommend this to anyone.
Remains my favourite Sushi place in New York; small restaurant; all food ultra fresh, nicely presented; friendly service; a bit loud if you go there with business friends.
Great food - excellent service
