"From the outside, the restaurant may look like one of non-Japanese sushi places, so our expectations were not high at the beginning. However, it was much better than expected and we will definitely go back. I mean we can get good sushi if we pay premium, but we can get good quality sushi at Atami for relatively reasonably. The service is very good as well."

"Solid Japanese food at affordable price. Apparently is more of a takeout place as the delivery people constantly came in and out through the dining room every 5 to 7 minutes. Kid friendly as it was not very crowded and was very informal. No wow factor at all"

"Reading reviews I thought I was in for a treat. The place is ultra small and in dire need of a makeover. The Sushi was just average and there are so many better places to go to. All in all, skip this place and you won't be missing much"

"We were early so it was very quiet initially but several tables filled up while we were there. Sushi and sashimi was excellent and portions were generous for NYC. Not a hip or upscale place which means it's perfect for us!"

"My wife and I grabbed dinner here the other night...The server was friendly and efficient...we were hungry and ordered appetizers with our drinks and they were out in less than 5 minutes. Our sushi was also made quickly and when we ordered a bit more, again it all went very smoothly. 2 beers each, starters and a fair amount of sushi ran us $85 with tip, which seems pretty reasonable. The rolls themselves are imaginative. I cannot say that the quality of the fish is superior...but again, for the price, it is very reasonable. This is a good, solid neighborhood joint, would try it again sometime."
