Convenient, after theater, Japanese

On Broadway at the northern edge of the theater district, you can choose a combination of sushi, sashimi, or Japanese barbeque, all of which were good. And they are open until 1 am every night except Sunday (12 midnight), so if you like to eat after the play, you do not have to rush from the... read more

Only a few blocks from the theatre district. Was able to get in at last minute. Appetizer options are excellent and generally sized to split. Fries and Brussels sprouts were particularly goid

We arrived before the theaters let out and had the place to ourselves. Service was excellent and the sushi was fresh. Tuna tacos, and grilled wings were both unique items in addition to the standard rolls.

Enjoyed Mr. Robata this week before attending a show. The rolls were creative, fresh and delicious. The salads we ordered prior to dinner were unique and in large portions.

Have visited this location on several occasions and is one of the best sushi restaurants I have eaten at. Grab a seat at the bar and watch the chefs prepare food. Items are fresh and tasty. Good menu selection.

This is a modern restaurant and the atmosphere was very good. We came here with a bunch of friends to celebrate, the night before their wedding. The food was great, although the portions were not the biggest, but we appreciated the service and enjoyed the drinks and Japanese beer. We left a little late, and pretty much closed the restaurant,... More

I have been to Mr Robata a few days ago and enjoyed the experience. The plus of my experience was definitely the very professional and friendly service received. The food was also very good but ridiculously small portions. Even my girlfriend who doesn't usually eat that much thought the portion was small. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I was there with colleagues and enjoyed the food. I had the Tuna Carpaccio which was awesome. The atmosphere is nice, the staff friendly and the food was great.

We went for the happy hour specials and the good selection of drinks. We got high priced drinks with limited food selections at happy hour prices. Sushi was average and priced between $4-$5 per piece. Too high for what you get. The happy hour consisted mostly of rolls which were mostly rice and "filler".

The atmosphere in this small sushi grill was very comfortable. My favorite part of my meal, which included their New York New York sushi roll (yummy) was the delectable grilled artichoke! If I had had any idea how good that was going to be, I probably would have skipped the sushi roll. I will eat there when I return to... More
