Yopparai is an intimate Japanese sake bar and restaurant featuring a wide variety of sake along with traditional foods and snacks that pair well with sake.

With only 30 seats, we aim to bring a personal sake tasting experience to each of our guests. Allow one of our sommeliers to help you select a special sake, served at the ideal temperature, in our house collection of traditional Japanese glassware. Relax in our unique and inviting space, and enjoy the warmth and tradition of Japanese sake and dining.

"Took us 15 minutes to order food from one of two wait staffs for the restaurants, they both seemed stressed although it's a relatively small venue. Some of the dishes came out longer than others, overall we spent 1.5hrs at the restaurant and took about 15mins to eat in total. Dishes were overhyped with very small portions relative to the value, the chawahmushi was watery and less savory than even Ootoya and charged $9 for a small size than what was offered at Ootoya for free (came as part of a set). The pork belly with egg dish was so rich in fat, rendered inedible after I took two bites. The hubby had about half of it, and it was a small scramble for $14. Another example is the Salmon sake rice dish which was presented in a wooden box but the actual dish barely covered the box in a thin layer for $19! Would not go back, very disappointed as the hype gave me high expectations. We sat at the sushi bar and watched one of the prep chefs making some of the dishes on the menu but she washed her hands between dishes very inconsistently...."

"I've seen and heard so many good reviews about this restaurant and I was so excited to visit there. It was not bad at all, but not as good as I expected. For food, Karaage (fried chicken) was delicious, but that was all. As a Japanese who loves food, I would say their Sashimi is not that good.They are way too expensive for the quality. All grilled food was decent. The chef didn't say even Hi to us even though we are right in front of him. He only talked to certain customers, which I would say was a bit rude. Waitresses are kind. Their Sake selection is good. Where they are is not in a pleasant atmosphere. Overall, I would not go back there again, would not recommend anybody at all."

"Yopparai is my favorite neighborhood restaurant, and one of my three favorite Japanese restaurants in New York. The selection of sakes is outstanding, and there are so many rare and surprising dishes, all exquisite. The setting is intimate. This is not a place for a party as most of the tables are for two--and that's how I like it. Unbeatable!"
