The house salad is delicious. Very fresh Sushi. This place has the best Miso Soup ever! You will need reservations. And it is no longer a BYOB.

This is a place that has reasonable food at a snooty price with desires to be better than they are. I was not impressed with the service, although the atmosphere is lovely. I really loved the art, but sadly, you can't eat it. Save your money and order in from Sultan's Wok. Or find somewhere worth spending the money.

Maki rolls were very generous. Bar was limited to beer (Sapphoro), white & red wine. Desserts were also very good - I had the green... More

Delicious food, sincere, friendly and efficient staff, and BYOB - who could ask for more?! My husband is a meat and potatoes guy, and I love sushi. This is the only place where we both get our favorites and they're both excellent! Sushi for me, and short ribs for him - my mouth is watering all over again!! We also... More

this place seemed to score well, so we had to give it a try. it wasn't too hard to get reservations, and we scored an early evening visit. no alcohol - fortunately, there is a really good liquor store very close (lush) with great sake. we are both pretty picky about sushi, and eat a lot of it in NYC....
