Amazing sushi, great quality, and totally authentic in every way. Pricy, but worth it. Definitely recommend it.

This is one of my favorite sushi places in the area - the fish is very fresh and the menu offers a good range of options. I live nearby and order from here all the time and have never had a bad experience. The staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is fun and enegrizing if you are in the mood for a busy-feel in a dim light setting. The main dining room can get a bit loud when its full.

I really wanted to like this place, as I live on the upper west side and have been dying to find a good sushi restaurant. I have never written a bad food review, but I just had to let everyone know that this place is absolutely so over priced (they charge 11 dollars for that fake sugary seaweed that you can get at any other sushi place in NYC for $4) I mean who do they think they are? Wait, and $18 for a lobster roll made with defrosted frozen lobster?? Flat out the food here is not good quality.

The sushi is here is some of the best in NYC. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for, and well worth it in my opinion. Staff is also very friendly and nice. They are also more than happy to explain different items on the menu/types of fish. It's really one of my favorite spots in NYC!!!

I usually get quite irate with reviews that I feel lambaste restaurants unfairly because of overly attentive service, because I feel some people are just looking to nitpick or are overly sensitive and touchy. However, the service I received last night was truly overbearing. It felt as if we had multiple servers, each constantly interrupting our meal to see how it was going. Our primary server was sweet enough, she paid close attention to the fact that I was vegetarian and went back to the kitchen and let me know the shiitake mushrooms (in the shiitake mushroom roll) were cooked in fish broth. I appreciated that and told her so. But she often lingered way too long at our table, and talked to my date so long at times I couldn't shake the vague sensation she was hitting on him. She also unwrapped his chopsticks, but not mine. She would constantly shuffle around our water and alcohol glasses, in a way that created weird and awkward lulls in our discussion. I would come here again, but the management needs to organize and redirect service in a way that isn't confusing or intrusive.

This blue ribbon is located in a hotel lobby with the ambiance of a sauna. The room is non-descript with pale woods and no windows creating the effect of a subterranian sweat box. Not to mention the evening we went the heat was set at level way too high for comfortable eating. We started with cocktails which were standard. The miso soup was good. It was the blue crab roll that truly rocked, no in fact capsized our culinary boat. Three out of our first four bites were filled with cartilage from the crab, creating a crunch to roll that did not have panko flakes or sesame seeds involved. Needless to say we gave up on that roll. The spicy crunchy tuna roll was decent. My piece of ikura was offensively small. I am well aware the blue ribbon model likes to add a hipster feal to fine dining but this restaurant needs more attention to the ambiance, food preparation, as well as to their temperature settings, especially for a closed in subterranean sauna-like room. I still find Blue Ribbon Bakery a wonderful spot for a late night bite so do not give up on them all. But I do recomened staying far away from this one.

I took my cousin out for a birthday dinner here, and while I really wanted to like it, all I can say is "Feh!" The menu is extensive, but the waitress barely explained it to us & couldn't answer our questions. The food was all right, fresh, yes, but lacking much flavor. But the most excitement of the evening was when the bill came. If you're like me, the bill will knock your socks off, as I couldn't believe how much they charge for the food that is average at best & boring at worst.
