After the success of his first restaurant Ako in Williamsburg, Executive Chef/ Owner Nick Wang, formerly of Midtown’s renowned sushi staple Hatsuhana, opened up a second concept Amami overlooking Greenpoint’s McCarren Park in 2016.

Amami’s mission is to serve the highest quality sushi and sashimi, prepared with centuries-old techniques. The menu features izakaya-style small bites, like yakitori and kaarage, as well as traditional ramen. The sleek cocktail bar boasts a wide range of sakes, rotating local beers, and expertly-crafted seasonal cocktails. From the resourceful decor of reclaimed wood, preserved tree trunks and living plants, to the ultra clean mineralized “Kaiki” water filtration system, Amami embodies the meaning behind its name, “sweetness from the heavens.”

Perfect for a romantic date night or for private parties, Amami’s warm hospitality and attention to detail shines in every aspect of service, from the inviting atmosphere to the meticulously crafted Japanese fare.

Food was ok for the price, yakitori skewers were a bit though and not as flavorful. Very nice atmosphere though. The hosts kept hovering around since it was a bit slow, it would be nice if they stepped back a bit.

I love Amami Sushi. Took two buddies from Manhattan, who were open-minded about crossing a bridge for Japanese food in Greenpoint, but also were spewing some "show me" skepticism. They are now converts. I start with the enormous vegetarian ramen -- and leave room for the sushi/sashimi side of the menu. Good whisky list too.

Amami is a treasured location every time we’re in Brooklyn and it seems extremely undervalued given it’s always empty at the lunch timing we tend to hit. A fantastic value lunch menu makes this THE sushi joint in Greenpoint for us and they would have to make some huge mistakes for that to change.

It was a great date night restaurant. Ambiance was pretty cool. We were able to sit at the sushi bar where we could bare witness to the talented chefs create these amazing plates and rolls.I had the Spider roll and the King Crab roll, it was good. Nothing overly special, but good. I had the mezcal based cocktail which again, good. It was Valentine's Day(night), so we felt a tad rushed to flip the table. I would go back!

My family and I had Sunday dinner night at Amami. Overall, it was a lovely experience. The interior of the venue combined the elegance Japanese design with its hip Brooklyn flavor. The food was delicious. We had the Yakatori to start, which was grilled to perfection. The sushi/ sashimi for two was beautifully presented with a fresh sampling of a variety of fresh fish and house rolls. Our server Aphen was knowledgeable and thoughtful with his recommendations. The cocktail program presented a Japanese twist on traditional cocktails. Bartenders were warm and friendly. The owner/ chef came over to our table to greet us and see how we were enjoying our meal. You can tell he really cares about the guest experience and his craft. Dessert (my favorite part of every meal) was a perfect way to end with the tempura fried red bean ice cream and cheese cake. From start to finish, it was a great experience.

We booked this reservation through OpenTable Rewards and had a certificate which was supposed to be applied to our bill. When the check came, we were told they wouldn't accept the certificate (even though they were listed on OpenTable as a restaurant that accepts these rewards). We wouldn't have eaten here if we had known this. The food was just fine, not really worth the price and was a little fishy. We definitely won't come here again, there are much better sushi restaurants nearby (try Kyoto or Wasabi!)

At first I was skeptical. Coming in during happy hour for dinner can be a disaster if not done in the right place. The first dish ordered, shishito peppers, was poorly executed, but once the sushi came out, all my worries were gone. Such a great spot for an easy bite of quality sushi (ikura, hamachi, crab). Small intimate setting for a causal meet up or dinner out. Will come back if in the neighborhood again.

Food was excellent (we had a table of 6 and ordered lots of sushi). Time from order to table was also very reasonable considering it was a Saturday evening.

This is one of my fav sushi places in NYC. My friend lives in the area and pushed me to try. Boy am I glad I did. Been craving this place since. Drinks by Asif are superbly done. Sushi rolls are beyond excellent and innovative. Dishes such as purple potato fries, crispy shrimp, octopus legs, shishiso peppers are all delicious. The service is very friendly and welcoming. This place is extremely relaxing and wonderful.
