I have been to a lot of sushi places in the city, but I gotta say tomoe has great quality fish for the lowest price which is a bargain, but yea.. The wait can be a bit long sometimes.

What they serve is not Sushi. It's just rice and raw fish. I can't believe this place is so highly rated. I don't want to call this place as Sushi restaurant but seafood place.

You don't go here for the atmosphere and the service is rushed but I simply do not care. The sushi is amazing! I have waited an hour in the snow for this place and will do it again gladly. There is simply no fresher sushi in town... A small footnote, the RUDEST experience I've ever had in my life was at Sushi Samba

We were very disappointed, definitely won’t go back there. There is no possibility to order a table but the restaurant is very small therefore you need to wait (outside) for a table, after waiting 50 minutes (!) in 98 degrees we asked for some water and got a very angry face from the waiter, the service was very impatience it felt like they did us a favor for serving us, the waiter didn’t want to answer any question about the food and all the time urge us, like they just wanted you to eat fast and go away clear your place to the next customer (acceptable for fast food not for 40$ a person restaurant). Another thing the restaurant is way over priced! We are more than willing to pay a lot of money for good food and good atmosphere but that definitely not the case there, it’s crowded, unclean and very poor service.

My friend and I waited until 10:20 on a Thursday to walk in and we didn't have to wait at all. (Last call is 10:45 before 11:00 closing.) We had a regular sushi dinner and a regular sashimi dinner and a beer each. Miso soup was typical style and good, not over salted and at the right serving temp. Salad was just iceberg and radicchio with a neutral carrot dressing. The fish was excellent quality. That's what you're paying for. Yes, the pieces are too big in the American style. I would have been happier if every piece was cut in two. But I can live with that because of the quality. The rice balls under the fish in the nigiri sushi were small and loose like they should be and it was best to pick up the sushi pieces with my fingers. The serving temperature of the fish was not as cold as what you often find in NYC, and this helped the flavor of the fish come through. The wasabi was fake. Service was fine. Decor is nonexistent, which is fine with me although I would appreciate some screens to break up the room. Chopsticks are the super cheap rough hewn square wooden variety. The meal was $82 with tax and we were both well full.

The huge pieces of amazingly fresh fish will melt in your mouth... For those who are complaining, don't ruin it for the rest of us who greatly appreciate the generous portions! Special menu items are worth the extra few bucks- but if you're trying to save some cash, stick to the combinations and platters... yummmmmmmmm

I think it's still worth going to along w/ Hasaki (where I'm going tonight). Unless you're willing to go for a pricey place (Yasuda, Jewel Bako) or want great ambiance (Matsuri) there arent a whole lot of choices out there for a good price/quality ratio.
