Went here last night for drinks and a light bite and couldn't have been more impressed. I don't know what the reviewers below are talking about in terms of the service. From the time I arrived, everyone was lovely. We just sat at the bar and the bartender was great about unobtrusively staying on top of refills and making recommendations on the food. The sushi was delicious and the spare rib - huge and so tender. I would definitely return.

Apparently the mackerel is to die for along with the other seafood dishes. I had all of the non-seafood dishes and was not overly impressed. Good atmosphere, v. trendy ues type of spot.

My boyfriend and I went go Geisha this past Saturday to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn't have had a better time. We opted for the chef's tasting menu (which the chef allowed us to take a little liberty with in choosing our meat courses), and after a great conversation with our waiter about the champagne list, ended up ordering a couple bottles that we were overly impressed with (and we know our champagne, and clearly REALLY enjoy indulging). The whole night was so much fun and the food was adventurous and interesting. The chef even threw in an extra course, recognizing that my boyfriend and I are avid foodies, and were having a great time with his menu. The only problem was we were completely stuffed from all the goodies! The service was outstanding. Our plates and silverware were cleared in a timely (but not rigid) manner, and everything flowed seamlessly. At one point I managed to spill a whole glass of champagne when I got up to use the ladies room, but by the time I got back they had seated us at a new table (my seat was too soaked to use again!), and opened another bottle of dom just to replace my spilled champagne. The overall experience was classy, unique, and great fun without all the protocol pretension that comes with a lot of upscale NYC restaurants. We did end up spending a pretty penny, but it was 100% worth it. I would recommend this place to anyone!! Go and have a great time!

A fantastic sushi restaurant tucked away on 61st on a lower level entrance. The sushi is magnificent, the other dishes are very tasty, and the service meets one's expectations (but does not exceed them). There are numerous seating areas, each with a different ambience. To the previous reviewer who felt shunned to be placed upstairs, I will say that as someone who regularly makes reservations for executives at the city's top restaurants, being upstairs was not at all a downgrade. It is more civilized than the trendy downstairs region (comlete with LCD screen TV's displaying Japanese anime and the like.) Anyhow, an overall very enjoyable experience. Pricey, but worth it for the true sushi lover.

The food was very good and the quantity was less than satisfying, I actually had to go get pizza afterwards. As me and my life partner entered it seemed that there was conversation as where to seat us, because we were wisked away and brought upstairs to a desolate area of the restaurant. Overall the experience was decent and the food tasty.

What a treasure upper-eastside has longed for such a restaurant. My wife and I elected to have a tasting menu, and I must say neither of us could pick a favorite dish. One after another each course was better than the previous, finally finishing with the best short ribs known to man. The staff was also courtious and knowledgeable. Yeah, it was a little crowded and we had to wait for a table but all good restaurants are busy!

Hanging in the upper east side for a while, I know fancy places...but who can combine great place and excellent food? Believe geisha did it, the food is delicate, the drinks are inventive, the staff friendly, a mix of cordiality and fun! I admired the staff when I saw how the place was designed (stairs, only 1 bar, 4 rooms to serve) still everything runs pretty well, of course I imagine that like other places, there are cookies, but perfection doens't exist so, as I read, sorry for the ones who had a negative experience, but for me Geisha is a wonderful place with great people and exquisite food! Some of us can't have dinner at jean Georges or Le Bernardin everyday but Geisha makes me feel like I do!
