I had high expectations and our meal far exceeded them. Excellent and creative dishes on the tasting menu, which was very fairly priced at $85. Very friendly and professional service. Will definitely return

An eating experience I won't forget! We had a nice private section to ourselves. The staff was super attentive.

We've been to the Crimson Sparrow six or more times..for both dinner and brunch and each and every time everything- the service, ambience, food and drink is just as it should be: engaging, interesting, sometimes exciting, as in "WOW! All-in-all a wonderful and delicate balance. We've always left feeling perfectly satisfied- not stuffed or overwhelmed, just pleased and content. Thank you.

For tasting menu 2 dishes were very good (beef and pork belly), one was good (Softshell crab) but the rest were under spaced and bland. Service was very lackadaisical. I had to ask for pepper three times before actually getting it. Empty wine glasses were left on the table for multiple courses before I finally asked them to take them. Towards the end of our meal the server started spraying disinfectant on the table next to ours while we were eating one of our courses. Definitely not worth it.

Succession of exquisite small plates on the tasting menu kept us interested and excited for the next arrival.
My wife did find the sliced steak dish too rare, so I ended up eating it.

The food was very good. We enjoyed the tasting menu. I particularly enjoyed a mushroom dish and the wagyu beef dish. Our server didn't come around very often, forgot to replace our silverware, and didn't serve the drinks I asked for (I asked for the sake pairings only from the beverage pairing, to be paid for individually). The woman who initially seated us graciously checked on us and replaced the original sake pairings with new recommended sake pairings for the dishes I still had coming. The menu was misleading, showing three main course dishes when we only received one. It did not distinguish which main course we were receiving nor noted that one should have been particularly chosen (maybe this was a weird prix fixe/tasting menu combination?). This was quite disappointing. Overall, the food was great but the service was meh and expectations were cut short.

There was nothing special about this restaurant. The food was mostly below average, one or two good courses, tiny tiny morsel of tuna and scallop, pureed cauliflower that had no taste, fried potato, endive with a nondescript vegetarian filling, maitake mushrooms was decent but not wow, only decent thing was the hamachi and sunchoke puree. Even dessert was below average. And there was no sake pairing. We went to Hudson to eat in this restaurant but were so disappointed.

Always fabulous. Well worth the significant price tag for truly creative food and lovely wine and sake pairings. A tasting menu that won't disappoint. Each course was better than the last. What a great way to celebrate a special occasion!
