Disregard the reviewer below who complains about portion sizes and the "lunch menu." You don't go to a place like this to fill up on a cheap lunch combo meal - you come here to eat outstanding, fresh, and very unique fish. Ideally, you sit at the bar, surrender your palette to the chef, and bring a generous dining budget. Quite simply, this is where I go when I want to eat the best sushi in the city - I don't come here often (dinner for 2 runs around $300 if you sit at the bar, easily), but I have never been disappointed with the variety, freshness, taste, and yes, even the value. There were many kinds of fish I thought I hated before tasting them here - for example, I had never had *good* toro from other sushi spots, and avoided it like the plague. Here, you have your choice of 2-3 kinds of toro (generally "fatty," and "medium" - both amazing). In sum, Sushi-Ann is where you go when you want to sit, take your time, and truly enjoy *top notch* sushi.

The sushi are nothing special with the expensive prices. I was expected something spectacular by paying that level of price. Lunch menu has very limited choices. The portion is TOO small and it's like a kid's meal. The best part of the place is the live plant on the table. I would not choose to go there for lunch if I had read the reviews in advance.

Went here for a work lunch and sat at the bar. We asked for whatever the chef would like to prepare for us, and he did not dissappoint. I was extremely impressed by how flavorful and fresh each piece was not to mention that the chef reacted to our opinions of each taste and d wonderful conbinations. The wait staff was very attentive, replacing our beers and soy sauce dishes between bites. While it was a pricey meal and the room was full of power dealers, I am looking forward to returning.

Sushi-Ann was over priced, poor menu selection and had slow wait staff. My spicy tuna roll was mediocre at best. At $8.00 for six small pieces I expected better quality. What I received resembled the same quality I would expect from grocery store deli. I would not waste you time and money at Sushi-Ann

I am a regular at Sushi Ann and I find it to be delicious! For all the people who complain that there isn't enough variety, well it's because the chefs are very traditional and like to keep it that way, if you go to a traditional japanese restaurant in Japan, you probably won't see a Philidelphia roll (cream cheese and salmon), and you won't see that at Sushi Ann either. If you also complain about how they tell you that there is a minimum charge of 30$ at the bar, would you rather pay 25$ and at the end of your meal they tell you that you hadn't paid enough? I don't think that you'd like that, it's a warning just to make sure you understand. If you like Sashimi, it is phenomanel there, the texture and taste is wonderful and it is soooo fresh! The service is great, had a very nice waitress and the atmosphere is not too excessive. I would definently recommend it but watch out on weekday lunches, tends to be packed with business men so make sure you make a reservation!

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in NYC for over 10 years standing. And I recently moved back from an expat stint in Tokyo so I've had very good sushi. This place used to be called Sushisay back in the day and I wasn't sure if they quality would be the same, but it's still the same fresh beautifully presented sushi I've come to expect from here. Miso soup with nameko mushrooms is excellent. I first stumbled upon this restaurant after shopping at Saks. I opened the door and the restaurant was full of Japanese businessmen and the counter of sushi chefs looked so professional, in their crisp white attire. My friend and I sat at the sushi bar and discovered the chef studied 7 years before he had the opportunity to come to NYC and work at Sushisay. That's impressive. Decor is simple and elegant, no harsh lighting. I've never been here for dinner as it is in midtown away from where I normally hang out but lunch here is the best. I typically order a carafe of cold sake, miso soup with mushrooms and ala carte sushi: kanpachi, chu-toro, japanese mackerel, uni, japanese red snapper, anago, half beak, hotategai. comes to about $50-60 including tax and tip (very good value for excellent sushi).

Limited menu, sashimi sliced like for a chirasi dish (the fish was not superbly fresh either), weird appetisers . Don't waste your time (providing you can find a better alternative!)
