Sushi Nakazawa - Sushi Bar Ratings and Reviews

Through no fault of the chef and the staff in the front of house and the sushi bar, the maitre d' made me feel three feet tall and embarrassed me in front of my date both before and after my meal, and seated me at the far end of the sushi bar even though other customers were 30 minutes late. It does not matter how great everyone else worked -- one person was still able to thoroughly ruin a $600 meal. I truly regret bringing my girlfriend to eat her tonight, and, while grateful to the maitre d' for his unsolicited note of apology, will never eat at Nakazawa again. Had he not ruined it repeatedly, it would be five stars for food and service. Everyone else did their jobs with excellence and aplomb.

Sushi Nakazawa is a complete experience! Watching Chef Nakazawa craft his sushi creations was like watching an athlete compete in the highest level of his sport, or an actor on a Broadway stage, or an orchestra conductor. He is beyond talented, and the fish, rice, and ingredients he used were of the highest quality. The ambiance is very quiet at the Sushi Bar, very formal and upscale, but perfect if you are seeking a memorable meal in an upscale, quiet atmosphere for a special occasion. I will certainly remember this 21-course meal for a long time.

A nice sushi bar set up. Nice, clean and upscale atmosphere.
Ingredients are fantastic (very fresh and well curated).
It would have been even more amazing if their sushi rice was less salty.
Still, a very nice sushi joint.

Without a doubt the best sushi you'll have under $500 in NY. The restaurant has a relaxed dress code which I like and the service was impeccable. Every piece has a unique taste but it's all about how it came together with the rice. Watching Mr. Nakazawa and his staff assembly every piece was a delight.

Sushi Nakazawa is consistently exceptional. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable. Sitting at the sushi bar is so much fun. I love watching the chefs expertly slice and construct the sushi. And of course, the sushi is out of this world. Unique flavor profiles, unusual fish, and all so delicious. Of course it's not cheap, but it's worth the money for the food and overall experience.

Sushi was awesome!! and I had a good lesson ( I came there becouse I wanted to try sushi of highest quality and see how much more I have to learn. But in sushi Nakazawa it was not Mr.Nakazawa - very high disappointment for me!!

I was taken here for my birthday and it was a special experience indeed. The sushi was creative and very high quality, the service impeccable, and the ambiance sophisticated yet comfortable. Highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar for the full effect. Be prepared to eat some unique fish and so fresh that it was still moving when it was served. It will definitely leave a dent in your wallet but I would recommend it for a special occasion.

If you live in NY and like sushi you must eat here at least once. The entire experience is a treat. Nakazawa's omakase is well paced and smartly arranged. And the sushi... Oh, the sushi is some of the most delicate and finely crafted pieces of food you will ever eat.

One of the best sushi restaurants in NYC. Every piece of sushi is a piece of art. Sitting at the bar watching Mr.Nakazawa making every piece made the dinning experience very special. Highly recommended! Definitely will visit again soon.

It was more than what I had expected. It was amazing. I had the pleasure of being served by Chef Uchi. The sous chef there were just as funny as he was and the experience over all was really relaxed and enjoyable. All the food was mind-blowing. Seriously the best sushi I've had ever (though I haven't been to Jiro's... yet) I couldn't stand to eat other sushi for a month. It just wasn't the same.

I made a reservation at Sushi Nakazawa to celebrate my husband's birthday -- this itself was a feat, as it's pretty competitive to get in at the Sushi Bar. But he had been wanting to go for a long time and if you can get it, it's 100% worth it. The sushi was delicious, the space is beautiful, the service was impeccable, and it's so nice to be able to interact with the chefs and watch them prepare your food. I'm not sure if I've ever had fresher fish. At the end, you even have the opportunity to order your favorites again (we got 2 more pieces!). Overall, an outstanding dining experience that is reasonably priced.
