Although the service was impeccable. I found the tasting menu to be lackluster in comparison.

Extremily slow service, staff were just talking insted of looking at clients needs. The time kitchen spends in serving the food was too long. We arrived at 6:15 and they served the first dish at 7:00. The food was exquisite in a nice and chic place.

It’s one of my favorite and finest Japanese in NYC. You can see the art and passion put in every dish and you can watch the chefs create that perfect dish . Service is impeccable and the food is delicious. Though a bit on the higher end but I go to this restaurant on mist of my special occasions.

We always make sure we get our sushi fix here when in New York--especially convenient to our hotel. We always let the waiters make recommendations and they are always fantastic. Really enjoyed the Heat cocktail too!!

As a single diner ... they wanted me to sit at the sushi bar , but did give mea table ... the food is always spectacular.

I love the foisgras tacos and the watercress beet salad ... tried it this time with the tuna ... not sure what it is ...not regular cooked or raw tuna ... more like a smoked or seasoned tuna cake slivered into the salad ... delicious!

Service is efficient... atmosphere is business-like but comfortable. Very expensive! I will be back.
