"It was dinner of two on a Saturday night. The place is very simple and clean with no loud music or noisy patrons. We chose the seven course chef menu and a bottle of sake. We were served a variety of Japanese seafood, meat and vegetable dishes. Everything we had was filled with flavor. The portions were small but perfect. The service was extremely friendly, attentive and informative."

"unmemorable experience. the selection of fish is mediocre and restricted for such a raved about restaurant. biggest off-putting thing was a noisy sake fridge in the middle of the restaurant... so unjapanese un-zen and un-minimal. and pricey for an average sushi place."

"Our party of 4 sat at the Chef's table where we were able to see Chef Tomita masterfully create sushi omakase. Some of the best sushi I've ever eaten. Any questions we had regarding sake or our food choices were answered in detail."

"I had read a lot of good reviews about this place and am always interesting in trying new sushi and Japanese food. What a disappointment.
The service was beyond awful to the point where I felt like I was being punked. Every question we asked the waitress she responded with "No". I asked her what one of the appetizers was and she said "that's an appetizer" - yes, thank you I realize that's an appetizer since it's listed under appetizers, but what is in it? I asked the waitress which hand rolls were in the Cagen sushi - and she said whatever the chef wants. I then asked the hostess and she finally told me what was in it. I then asked the waitress if I could substitute one of the hand rolls for something else because I can't eat shrimp and she said no, without even asking the chef. I then had to ask the hostess to ask the chef and she came back and said no problem.
After a torturous experience ordering, they then brought all of our food at once. I got my sushi at the same time as my appetizers, and they even put my hand rolls from the Cagen sushi I ordered on my friend's plate, which was just strange. Terrible dining experience. I could maybe look past this if the food was great, but it wasn't. Take your money elsewhere - trust me.
The worse part was I left hungry after ordering a substantial amount of food."

"It is true that they have very nice fishes, directly from Japan and the chef is experienced and skillful.
Highly recommend to sit at that chef bar, huge difference sitting at tables.
After 4 times of visiting, I would say there are still room for improvement of the cooked food and services.
I had almost the same food for my visiting. I was very impressed for the first time, but I got a little bored after eating the similar plates over and over.
The service is good, but can be better. One of the waiters is actually a little shy, and his hands were a little shaking. They need to work on how to collect the used plates, add water, tea...etc. All those minor details would make the atmosphere of this place change a lot.
*Example, few blocks away, Kyo-ya has more professional services."

"The chefs are amazing and authentic. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. The omikase menu is an education that goes between hot and cold dishes. Truly outstanding!"

"Found this cozy little place courtesy of a good review on Yelp. Being a great fan of Japanese cuisine and sushi in particular, I had to try it out. The place is quiet and peaceful and run by a father and son team at the sushi bar - who are also the owners. I had the chef's omakase menu and I was served some of the best sushi I had ever tasted, not just in freshness but also in the way it was eaten. This place does cost a little more than your run-of-the-mill sushi places, but a must visit for a special occasion!"

"For japanse food lovers:
-traditional full course japanese meal
-exquisite presentation
-outstanding chef and his son are running the place
-price is reasonnable when you consider the quality and way way cheaper than some uptown restaurants for a higher quality.
Fyi I have lived in Japan and have tried most of the best japanse food in NY and this one is one notch above the rest.
If you are a group you have to all arrive at the same time as normally expected in this type of place.
