all staffs are very friendly and atmosphere is nice we can fee Japanese culture.
unfortunately, foods are not tasty and too salty.
I don't wanna back.
Unique, soulful and amazing as always! One of my all time favorites in NYC.
A small and cozy place with great food and atmosphere. We felt nostalgic about our times in Japan as we enjoyed the authentic Izakaya (Japanese bar) food and decor.
Most of the dishes we ordered as well as the sake were great.
A little surprise came with the bill... Now, we're not new to dinner bills in Manhattan and paid more in the past so I was expecting high toll to be paid but ~250$ for something you can get for 50$ in Japan is a little too much in my opinion.
But, anyway, the place left a great impression and we enjoyed the night a lot!
I definitely recommend the place. just be aware of the $$ factor.
Perfect. Great food. Delicious sake and incredible service. Felt like a family run business. They let us hang out eat and drink at our own pace and helped with the menu.
It was our first time there and we selected dishes from several categories on the menu - rice, meat, fish and vegetables. Each dish had freshly prepared ingredients and was tasty. The service was fine as was the sake recommended for the meal.
First challenge was getting in. Ring buzzer but nobody answer for a couple of minutes. Once buzzed in it is small but cozy. Creative design of seats with storage underneath. Food was of high quality but not in quantity. Food was reasonably priced. Only complaint was sake. My god that was expensive. Had a great time.
Some of the best and innovative while still staying authentic, small plates done Japanese style I've ever had the pleasure of having.
Go if you like excellent food, presented with art and tradition in mind, with a service staff that is beyond great.
Very accommodating, cozy Japanese izakaya fare. Some of the best uni in the city!
While the food is overall of good quality with an excellent selection of sake, Yopparai is way over priced and simply not worth the money for a casual night out.
