Top notch sushi from a true creative genius. Worth the cost.
Fun and super fresh! Interesting assortment of fish a lot of which I had never tried!
little door opening a way to an alternate universe -- no more New York City, and nothing as it should be in a real life. Lady and not a Japanese Lady, serving omakaze of a superb quality, piece by piece, intriguing and satisfying every single one of my taste buds, with the time to absorb the taste, and be ready for the next piece... No rushing, not a single thought outside of the current appreciation of this unique experience... Definitely recommend to anyone open to a different look on life...
One of the best Omakase spots in NYC
What a wonderful evening! The restaurant is very cozy and relaxing. The music was wonderful and contributed to the great ambiance. Chef was very inviting and the food spoke for itself - fresh, delicious, seasoned and executed perfectly. The rice was some of the best sushi rice I’ve had with the perfect amount of vinegar and was delicately formed. The cocktail and sake selection paired great with the meal. Already talking about when we are coming back.
Amazing! Every piece curated by Oona was exceptional! Absolutely fantastic, this is the most creative and thoughtful omakase I’ve ever had! Strongly strongly recommend.
This is my last time ever for this sushi place...disappointed by the fact that it is sushi by Bou quality with sushi by bae price.
Fish is not fresh, high quality
Service is okay
Rice is saggy and loose
A la carte is rip-off period
I had such high respect and expectations to this lady sushi chef, sorry but you let me down big time!
Terrific food and service. Great conversation. Unique ambience for a sushi spot.
Absolutely amazing! This is not a cheap meal, but it's not meant to be. You're paying a premium price for premium product and service. And you won't be disappointed. There wasn't one piece that didn't speak excellence. And in fact, I was left wanting more.
I highly recommend getting a good sake to go with the meal. It compliments things well and doesn't get in the way like a beer or cocktail might. The staff can help make great choices based on what you tend to like and will offer tasters of anything before serving to make sure you're happy with the selection.
I love Sushi by Bou, but have now found another love in Sushi by Bae. I will be a lifetime customer and look forward to my next meal here.
The sushi was truly great!!! Oona was wonderful and expertly made some of the best sushi I have ever had.
I will be going back for sure !!
Love this place!
The food was superlative and chef Oona was kind, accommodating and interesting - everything you would want in a master chef serving you at a counter. The L shaped six person counter was private enough for a date night conversation but you could also join in a cross table conversation. Couches and adjacent bou counter kick up the noise and informality level too. Not a rarefied traditional sushi experience but a speakeasy and fun vibe with food that doesn't suffer for it..will be back in a Heartbeat.
Excellent, from the food to soundtrack. Really great experience
Chef Oona is fantastic. Super knowledgeable and passionate about her food.
Oona was an absolute pleasure. She explained every piece and answered all my very annoying questions! A female sushi chef in NYC? And that’s not even what defines her in my opinion. Her food does. Can’t wait to get back. Definitely get that extra piece at the end.
This was our second time. We thought the location was much better but that the amount and explanations of the food was smaller and less special. Still a wonderful and delicious experience.
An absolute blast. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with Chef Tempest and we were blown away by her hospitality and amazing food. We loved everything about our experience and would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!!
Ive never written an openable review despite having many dining experiences around the world at all sorts of restaurants. Sushi by Bae was a horrible value and experience. Purchased a bottle of sake and the waiters were extremely negligent in pouring... and seemed to have consumed a lot of it themselves. They were at the bar next door enjoying themselves when I went to the bathroom (which is shared with the bar next door). Seems cheap but very little food. A much better choice would be something like Okuda's kaiseki.
One of the absolute best sushi experiences I’ve ever had. The menu and fish selection is phenomenal; sake selection is on point and the service exceeds all expectations. Will be coming back ASAP with friends !
Second time, great experience, amazing sushi!
Amazing omakase from a super talented chef!
Oona Tempest’s presentation is beautiful & the flavors are delicious,
Absolutely incredible. The best omakase experience I’ve ever had
Best sushi place in NY! You can eat authentic Japanese sushi in here!! The owner super cool sushi chef create each piece is beautiful and super delicious!! I highly recommend!!
Sushi by bae was 1 of those amazing omakase meals that won’t break the bank but also serves high quality sushi... oona tempest is a master at what she does and I recommend sushi by bae for any sushi fans out there
Amazing, amazing service rivaling the quality of the fish. An absolute must.
Oona Tempest is a force of nature. One of the few female sushi chefs, she is passionate about her craft. A don't miss sushi omakase. Make your reservation now, before it is impossible.
We really enjoyed this omakase! The fish was really delicious and the chef was personable. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an authentic experience.
Exquisite, skillful and passionately prepared food. The entire staff was warm and top notch professional. Give in to the mixologist’s skill - you won’t regret that! I am making plans to return!
Oona is a fantastic sushi chef that puts a great amount of work in providing unique and delicious courses. She also does a great job of interacting with those at her seatings. Her staff is on point and the ambiance is also great.
I have never eaten sushi prior to my dining experience at Sushi By Bae. To be introduced to sushi by such an elegant Chef is extraordinarily lucky. Fresh, clean, hospitable, friendly, all the elements for a perfect dinner. It was. I am glad to have had the best for my first.
Dining at this intimate corner with Oona Tempest is a delicious experience not to be missed. Her care and love for the art comes across with every piece she serves. The room is comfortable and modern - not your parent's sushi experience. Great cocktails, unusual sake.
One of the best omakase sushi values in the city: $110 for 15 perfectly crafted pieces served at the perfect pace. Menu changes based on the season and market availability. Oona Tempest is a wonder and a perfect host - it feels less like a restaurant and more like you're joining her in her apartment for an intimate dinner party. Just brilliant.
Overpriced. If this was $50 like sushi by bou, we have no complaints (although we think sushi by bou is a lot better). The firmness of the rice was uneven, and I think some fish were left sitting on the cutting board too long. Sea urchin was not good at all...had no taste. Although, I guess the taste was not too bad as compared to other random sushi places but we had higher expectations considering the price.
The chef was wearing a watch and hair band on her wrists, and also her sleeves were not tucked up to her elbow which was all very very disturbing while watching her make our sushi. I have never seen sushi chefs having anything up to the elbow. She was also touching her cell at where she cooked. It was nice she was interacting with customers, but her hand stops when she talks, so it was a lot of waiting....
Fantastic chef and service from sushi master Oona!
Awesome sushi rice, great fish, and excellent chef. Will come back again!
The food was so very good! Oona was lovely. I hope she stays here for a while. She’s a great addition to the nyc dining scene.
