I can only say that I visit at least once a week and I've been doing this for at least a year. Besides Yamatos offering the best quality of food and value for lunch, the friendly service is way above the norm. I rate this one of the top 3 restaurants in Park Slope. Dinner is always excellent as well.

For well made ample portions - Yamato is it. As a family choice it can sometimes be clamorous, but is otherwise a fine; both in ambiance and in decor. The Lunch menu is particularly charitable with most things under $10. Yes, the service is sometimes rushed and uneven, but the cuisine is worth it.

My son went to P.S. 321, and he was allowed to go out for lunch. Some days he went to Yamato for lunch. He walked into Yamato, and was not greeted friendly, but was, believe it or not, pushed to the side by an employee. They took 20 minutes before even acknowledging that he had even arrived. After that, they served new people walking in in a matter of seconds, with their food brought out to them after a great waiting time. After 50 minutes, he didn't even get his food and he had to go back to school. he came home starving. Excellent, fresh food, but honestly, the waiters suck.

I order the fish entrees (haven't tried the sushi) at least once a week and it's so addictive. I've tried the trout, salmon and snapper, all fantastic and come with really fresh veggies. The dumplings are also quite good.

I just got home from lunch at Yamato and I must say I was very disappointed. I was with a friend and we both got the lunch special - I had Shrimp and Vegetable Tempera and she had the Trout. The meal started off well with miso soup, but once the entrees arrived we were not impressed. Both dishes were flavorless and I still have a strange metallic taste in my mouth.

Yamato is truly outstanding. The fish is extremely fresh (always in our experience), the service is excellent, the place is attractive and certainly good for a date. We highly recommend the nigori sake and anything sushi (salmon in particular). Not cheap, but quality rarely is. Definitely worth it!

I've been several times after a number of uber-positive recommendations and have mixed feelings. The restaurant's special rolls are really quite good and inventive, but for a price and I always get the feeling that they are skimming costs. Several of their special rolls, including the firecracker roll , lover's roll, and norwegenthan are very good but pricey ($11-12) and smaller in size than at other sushi places. Also, I always get red wine with food there and they always skimp out on that which annoys me considering that it is not exactly the most expensive wine in the world that they are serving. One time I tasted the wine and it seemed vinegary and when I mentioned to staff they looked at me like I was making it up. So, fun for rolls, especially the first two-three times, but then their novelty wears thin and they don't seem so special anymore. Also worth noting that the sushi chefs are Chinese and not Japanese at this restaurant.
