Excellent fine dining japanese

Many of the dishes here were of the "Wow" variety, including some wagyu beef, a soft shell crab, two varieties of toro sushi and a lovely duck, all still lingering in my mind. Definitely worth a visit, would have gone back already had I not been on the other side of the pond!

Do not go! This operation is a total tourist scam. The sushi is just okay. But, the rest of the experience is misery. The cheapest glass of Chardonet is $25 per glass, and the wine is sickly sweet junk. A glass of buckwheat infused lemonade is $10, and don't ask for a Coke as they don't have it. The decor... More

It was simply dish after dish of elegant, classy sushi with an individual style. Interesting drink selection too. I wasn't paying so cannot comment on value for money, but the quality of the food merits high prices.

I have been to Neta for lunch three times in the past month. After dining at several of the "best" sushi restaurants in NYC -- Yasuda, Soto, Ichimura, Seki, Gari, Azaba, Bond St, Blue Ribbon, Morimoto, etc -- I just can't get enough of Neta!!!! Each time the sushi has been super fresh and the service has been top notch... More

I would describe this restaurant as a pale copy of Nobu. The service is so so, the food is good but not fantastic, and you have people just behind your back waiting for your sit at the counter - no pressure, but the faster you go the better for them. Given the background of the chef, I expected much better.

We wanted an unpretentious restaurant for a casual supper and, without any knowledge of it, were happy to try Japanese on a recommendation. Delighted that we did! The restaurant is certainly small and unpretentious - a neutral room, with tables down one side, not too noisy but buzzy and no distractions from the decor - a little basic, bland even,... More

This is an unpretentious, neutrally toned, brightly lit room. Not too noisy. Very, very good staff. Great drinks list. But the focus is squarely on the food. And it is expensive. We were with a friend who has been lucky enough to go to some of the best Japanese restaurants in the world and he really rates the food here.... More

We decided to try a relatively new sushi restaurant. Neta is in a small store front in the village. We opted for the expanded Omakase. I actually considered walking out after the first few course because the dishes were so unbalanced. The Toro and Caviar sounds interesting but in realty its simply a waste of two fine ingredients.

Our waiter was the most pretentious , obnoxious server we have ever encountered. We live down the street and eat at every great NYC restaurant. This was the worst ever in terms of treating us with a holier than thou attitude. Additionally, it's insanely costly for what it is. Yes the food is good but so are a thousand others... More

The chef here came from Masa, and it comes through in the dishes. This is basically a less pricey (but also not the same quality) version of Masa. Overall it's not as good as the top sushi spots in NYC, but the food is delicious nonetheless.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
