Considered a favorite by many Japanese chefs, this minimalistic sushi restaurant boasts one of the best omakase offerings in the city. We chose the 16-piece sushi and sashimi omakase, which means "up to you" giving the chef full reign. If you're dining at a top tier Japanese restaurant, this is the way to go and it allows you to admire and enjoy the chef's orchestration for the night. We wanted very much to dine at the 10-seater sushi bar but they were booked (no surprise) so we were served in the sleek dining room. It's not the same as watching this purist master's knife and folding skills, but nevertheless, the Chef and Captain took excellent care of us as they took us on a journey of oceanic Japanese delights. and every morsel we had was incredibly fresh and superb!

This is def the best sushi I have had in NYC (haven't been to Masa). I think it's a great value for an authentic meal. Sit at the sushi bar and let the chef take care of you.

Once my favorite sushi restaurnts - worth the high price. But the sushi quality has gone down. And the noise level has exploded. Sushi Samba at twice the price

Just had dinner here last night and was completely blown away! I've never had sushi prepared with such skill and care that you can't even think about dipping these delecacies in soy sauce. It's definitely not the for you if all you want is a good tuna or California roll, almost anyone can eek out one of those. This is where you go when you want REALLY quality fish; I mean you can 1000% taste the difference in quality between here and 98% of all other sushi restaurants in NY and when it somes to sushi in NY i'd like to think I'm well traveled. Amazing place!!! I can't wait to go back!!

Figure on spending $100 per person but, in my mind, well worth it. I'm going to be saving money to go back and order the high end tasting menu.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants in NYC - sure you pay for it but you're paying for quality and it shows. Don't expect crazy rolls or huge pieces of fish - good fish costs a lot these days. The sushi bar is the place to be. It's traditional, no fuss and the chef is quite friendly. We love their sea urchin, octopus, tuna, kanpachi and salmon.
