This restaurant is permanently closed. With its blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine, SUSHISAMBA is a long-standing NYC favorite. Dine and drink on one of the City's best rooftops or in the casual sidewalk café - the perfect way to enjoy the energy of the West Village.

Fans love the diverse culinary choices, whether it be the sea bass, ribeye and other skewered savories found in the Peruvian Anticuchos or for veggie lovers, the Mushroom Tobanyaki. From the most inventive and super fresh sushi rolls, sashimi, seviche and raw bar to classic Chicken Teriyaki and hearty seafood Moqueca, SUSHISAMBA has something for every palate.

Critically-acclaimed Culinary Cocktails are also a standout: each one is created in collaboration with our kitchen team and incorporates ingredients usually find on the plate. Or opt for a classic SUSHISAMBA signature like our monthly-changing Sambatini. You can also explore sake on the extensive sake list.

The hostess was very rude, apparently it was his last day at this restaurant as he was going to work for MTA. Our reservation was at 8pm----we were seated at 830p, which caused our 2hour parking limit to get us charged an extra $30 because we ran past 2hrs!!!! We will not be returning here again, food was overpriced for the quality, service was slow---however i guess no one cared as this restaurant was closing in 2 days. They should have disclosed this on their website BEFORE i made reservations. never again.

Sushisamba has been our favorite NYC restaurant for years, and while we so sad that the NY location is closing, we're glad we were able to get in one more time for a fantastic dinner. Our server, Tim, was as excellent as everyone who's ever waited on us, the food was as fabulous as ever and our last dinner there was very special. Thanks for lots of great times and amazing food over the years.

We had a great time. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. It is a shame this location will be closing. Glad we caught it. Thanks!

This is a great spot, but I didn't get why we couldn't sit down when 2 out of our party of 3 were there. Instead we had to sat at the bar, though there were scads of tables. The bar is nice, but it's cold and drafty from the front door opening on a cold night. It didn't prevent us having a good time, but it didn't help!

We went because we had such a great experience at SushiSamba in Las Vegas. This did not compare. We will not be back.

Served seafood to a vegan. Didn’t seem to understand that thus was a problem. Such a shame as many previous visits were all 5 star!!

I have been to Sushi Samba at its Park Ave location, in Vegas and in the village, and I have loved it every time. The food is fabulous, and the service wonderful. I tell all my friends who go to NYC or Vegas to make sure they go. The only negative is the noise level at both locales. But overall the food makes it all better.

La comida está buena, el local no es muy nuevo que digamos pero lo que me dejó alucinado fue la cuenta... precios desorbitados para la calidad del producto.! Por esos precios se pueden ir a cientos de sitios mejores

Visited 4 December.

The very worst service we have received in a very long time. So fire that we left within 15 minutes. We were not the only customers we met that night with these issues.

It may be the “original” but the sooner this branch closes the better - SS are hugely damaging their brand by keeping this place open a day longer than necessary. Especially with the current manager in place.

La comida estuvo muy rica y el servicio espectacular, aunque el lugar aparentemente va a cerrar, por lo que si se ve un poco desatendido. Nuestra experiencia fue muy buena. Esperamos que abran algún día en Panamá.

One of the best anniversary dinners we’ve had. This is still my favorite restaurant. Tasting menu is the best way to enjoy a little bit of everything. Delicious food and sake!

It was an awful experience! Some of the staff upstairs would not turn the music down. Our waiter went to turn it down, and one of the barmen and the women behind the bar insisted on jacking it up even louder! We were the only customers sitting upstairs! Also, the barman kept giving us dirty looks. So, we just left! We had to find another place to go to.

Not recommended; won’t be going back. Food was average and service was terrible.
