    Host was incredibly rude and this was for my bday celebration. Used to love it here, not going back. The chefs were nice and made the experience a bit better. Host was awful.

    The experience was good but what they don’t tell you is that each seating is only 30-45 minutes. We were 10 minutes late due to traffic and after 20 minutes we told that we had to pay and leave. It’s fun but don’t expect a proper dinner since it is so quick.

    The experience was amazing. Tony, the front manager was so pleasant and welcoming. The chefs were wonderful and then there is a little lounge attached to sit for cocktails after dinner. The music was not loud and lovely. The only suggestion I have is that the music should be geared to the disco era/ ‘70’s music as the restaurant is ‘disco’ themed. Otherwise, a perfect evening in an intimate setting with warm, accommodating staff. That’s especially admirable in a newly opened restaurant (although I’m sure they do have the “Bou” formula to work with) **foot note. The restaurant is on 21st down a flight of stairs and not on Broadway. I’m not sure if this could be clarified on this site or the restaurant site. A couple of people in my party could not find it without help.

    Food was excellent and service was nice. It did feel a very rushed experience (dined multiple times with sushi by bou and this one was by far the one that felt most rushed). The table before us was late, so we started dining at 9pm vs our reservation at 8:45, by 9:20 we had already been served the 12 courses.

    Absolutely thrilled to share my enthusiastic review of Sushi by Bou! Nestled in a cozy and intimate space, this gem of a restaurant redefines the sushi experience in the most delightful manner possible. From the moment you step into the intimate setting of Sushi by Bou, you're immediately transported into a world of culinary excellence. The cozy space creates an atmosphere that feels both exclusive and welcoming, allowing diners to immerse themselves fully in the gastronomic journey ahead. The sushi here is nothing short of extraordinary. Chef Bou's expertise shines through in every meticulously prepared piece of sushi. The omakase experience, in particular, is a testament to Chef Bou's skillful artistry. The freshness of the ingredients is unmistakable, and the creative combinations and flavors leave a lasting impression on your taste buds. The compact size of the restaurant adds to its allure, fostering an intimate dining experience that feels personalized. The omakase counter seating allows for an up-close interaction with the chefs, giving patrons a front-row view of the culinary magic as it unfolds. It's an immersive experience that elevates the enjoyment of each bite. The service at Sushi by Bou is impeccable. Despite the intimate setting, the staff manages to strike the perfect balance between attentiveness and discretion. Their knowledge of the menu, coupled with their warm and friendly approach, contributes significantly to the overall dining experience. The ambiance, though small in size, exudes a charm that's hard to find elsewhere. The minimalist decor and thoughtful lighting create an inviting atmosphere that complements the culinary journey offered here.

    Extremely satisfied with Chef Alex at this location! Loved that we went when it wasn’t packed so our experience was more personal and enjoyable. Every single piece was made beautifully and tasted absolutely exquisite. We even got some sake and an extra piece on the house! Chef’s attention to detail is phenomenal. Will definitely come back for more as this is the best omakase experience I’ve had so far. Kanpai Chef Alex and team Bou!🍣🍶

    I'm not sure if we had a bad chef but we've been to Sushi by Bou before and it was great (in Nomad) but this time we really didn't have a good experience. We're not usually reviewers but it was worthy enough to write about - felt like either portions were weird or something just tasted off about some of the pieces.

    Previous time was superb, delicious sushi made with great care and precision. This time it was more sloppy pieces, made quickly and served too fast (before previous piece was off plate), and with a mumbled announcement if what it was, instead of the attentive explanation of the last time we came (when it was a different chef). Food still good, but not excellent, as it was the last time.

    The rice was very chewy and even when we asked for less rice there was still a lot on it. It was also only a 30 minute table sitting rather than an hour which I have never experienced and it felt very rushed. The actual fish was phenomenal though

    Upon arrival, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. They already had 2 pieces of sushi awaiting for us since we were late for the reservation. I was surprised by the time limit they had since I did not know about their concept but food came steady pace and they tasted amazing. As being Japanese myself, I was happy that the sushi chef was Japanese and I can guarantee that the the quality of their sushi was up to per. Every bite was worth it. I will definitely go back again.

    ambience was off - surroundings too loud with quiet music, place felt kind of dirty/old; service was underwhelming - no introduction at the beginning of meal about the food and we didn't get water/drinks until the meal was almost over

    Clearly fresh and quality ingredients. Such a shame the chefs don’t know what to do with it. Far too much seasoning. Doesn’t come anywhere close to west coast sushi. Also rushing us out of the restaurant was weird. Maybe have some buffer time between seatings so people don’t feel rushed?

    Chef did not want to be there and somewhat diminished the experience. Otherwise food was solid though a touch overpriced
