So so

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.

Whatever it is you're paying for here it certainly isn't for the best Japanese food in town. This is an over-hyped concept with shameful delivery. Apart from the arrogant, nonchalant and supercilious staff, the food is mediocre and over priced. Overall quality is sub par; rolls that are no better than you'd get in a supermarket; tiny slivers of overpriced... More

Well, there is no denying that you did not seem to enjoy your experience at Neta. I wish you had spoken to someone about it while still present to make good on any of the mentioned issues. I will say this, The great reviews, the busy restaurant, the many, many regulars and our solid reputation are not because of any... More

Finesse in a casual context. The ingredients they use truly are amazing quality wise ( I recommend getting uni and fatty tuna, especially ) and they put them at good use. Cocktails were great too, and it allows you to discover many new combinations/liquors. It's a bit high when it comes to price for quantity, but then again, quality comes... More

Ok, so to the people who say this place is expensive; yes it is. But you get what you pay for in life. From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. We took a spot at the bar, which gave us opportunity to watch the chefs and the amazing attention to detail. We took the taster menu, adding the... More

We sat at the bar and ordered one of the Omakase options, plus a couple of extra items. Truly delicious food. Gluten free available (they adapt Omakase accordingly). Great service. Pricey but one of the best meals we've ever had in NYC.

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.
