1st of all my delivery order took over an hour and when it finally arrived my miso soup had spilled INTO the sushi container. miso soaked sushi. i of course understand that accidents happen but when i called the restaurant they said it would take another hour for a replacement. this was after i talked to 3 different employees who seemed to keep handing me off to someone else. good quality at the restaurant but terrible delivery and completely incompetent customer service.

No complaints at all with the food. Always quality. And the staff is very sweet. But listen. Every single time I call to order delivery, (so far it's 4 times in a row), they will stop me at the end of the order and say "sorry, there's a $20 minimum for delivery." Then I will go about explaining that my order should total $20, just count it up. This will then cause major confusion and skepticism on the other end of the phone, as though they believe I'm lying or something, and I'll wait in silence for the woman over the phone (sometimes for very long uncomfortable stretches) to add up my order and inform me that "no, you only ordered $19.85." I mean. I've had it up to here with these people. Someone, please, if you can hear me, open a good sushi place a few stops out in Williamsburg that doesn't require a month's security deposit to get some dinner. Thanks. And Robata Bar, no offense. You guys are nice. But you need to relax.

Great consistent real japanese food. Husband and I are very picky and being japanese conscious of quality ingredients and careful thoughtful preparation. The quality of the food is consistently superb. The robata cooked chicken mozarella meatballs are amazing - as is the avocado salad, tender beef teriyaki, veggie soba and the sushi is as good as it gets - always fresh and perfectly proportioned. The grilled umeboshi filled onigiri rice ball is tasty. All the alcohol - plum wines, sakes are well-chosen and delicious. The japanese proprietors are so welcoming and kind; the restaurant is cozy and very relaxed. Highly recommend!

I noticed the restaurant for months walking to the train but I never got around to it. Well I should've tried it sooner cause it was great. I went back with my boyfriend the following week and he loved it too. Definitely one of my favorites. Great ambiance, delicious food and very nice people.

I love izakaya so I was really looking forward to trying this place. The décor is nice and homey, but I was not a fan of the generic elevator jazz they were playing that night. The food we ordered; takoyaki, grilled plum onigiri, salmon rice in broth, and vegetable soba, all came very standard, with no original twists to set the dish apart and make it something unique to this place. It was also, surprisingly, somewhat bland. I really want to like this place because the people there were so friendly and seem to really care. They chef gave us and the other people sitting at the bar edamame on the house. I think they just need time to develop a style and taste.

The design is so much more than expected when you walk in the door. Beautiful dark wood booths afford intimacy while the option of open table seating is also available. The service was just the right amount of attentive, offering suggestions and taking care to keep diner's likes, dislikes,and dietary needs in mind. The food was fresh, filing, and delicious. Try the grilled onigiri (rice ball) and the blackberry cabernet sorbet. Oii-shi! (delicious!) We will be back for sure. p.s. another bonus: the sushi chef revealed that the upstairs area is a terrace for the warm weather!

I don't write reviews often.. but qoo is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. I was initially deterred by all the extraneous lights and decorations outside, but I guess I have to give them credit for trying to get noticed on a highly trafficked road with not much in the way of food options (except for fette sau, of course) The robata bar was good, we had a nice sampling of meats and fish... but the sushi specials were unexpectedly great! I love the specialty rolls at samurai sushi, but their spicy crunchy tuna roll totally blew them out of the water. And the dragon roll.. another thumbs up. Give the place a try.. we were more than pleasantly surprised.
