    Sushi Mania

    For the UWS, Neo and Gari while a small step down are a much better value. Was it worth it? I do not think I will be a repeat customer, but I think it is worth the try. My UWS rankings with estimated prices are the following 1) MASA (450/person) 2) Gari 100/person) 3) Neo (80/person). If Nobu was on the UWS I would put it at 4 with a cost of 130/person.

    Money CAN buy you a religious experience

    The previous reviewers taste is seriously in question. Masa is by far the best sushi in the city, and from my travels, the country. I had the center bar seat with Masa himself slinging sushi for 3 hours. Each course was more amazing than the last and well worth the $1600 for 3. Masa spares no expense with ingredients, truffles, caviar, and blowfish abound. Save your pennies and partake of the crown culinary jewel in New York City. No need to dress up, the focus is on the food-not you.

    Disappointed

    I tried it and boy, was I disappointed. The room is serene, as long as no one else in the restaurant is speaking. The accoustics are so bad in there that even light table conversation is projected throughout the room. The food is very expensive, but I will pay for a great meal - this was not it. One course was still frozen in the middle (I didn't think they froze their fish?). Other than that course, the food was generally very good, but certainly not worth the crazy price. Also, the sake is unreasonably expensive as well.

    Best sushi we have ever had

    Yes, it's expensive (currently $350 per person not including drinks, tax, or tip), but this is the best meal I have had in my life. Soft, supple fish that melts in your mouth... literally. The toro is the best. Make sure you reserve a spot at the counter... it's a much better experience to sit at the counter and watch Chef Masa work than to sit at the tables away from the action.

    The pinnacle

    Everything is amazing, the food, the place...unmatched quality. Toro is the best I've had in either NY or Japan. Uni was creamy and delicious. The shitake mushroom nigiri was outstanding. Toro tartare has enough caviar on it to bring a man to tears. Having said that, with two bottles of sake and tip it came out to $1100 for the two of us. Make sure you get a seat at the sushi bar, and don't forget your AmEx black card.
