Odd sorta place but good

Enjoyed some nice sushi here. Prices higher than what I am used to but that's likely the norm for NYC. :-). It is clearly a favourite local haunt and the place is very lively with chatter.

I've been here a few times for lunch, I try to always get there a few minutes early. I've been first in line twice which in itself feels like a small victory.They open for lunch then close for a couple of hours and open again for dinner. This place is SMALL, if you do not like confined spaces this place... More

I went with my son for lunch. We ate the nameko soup, fried calamari, ramen and sushi. All were fresh and very tasty. The restaurant is small and basic but we came for the food and we weren't disappointed. Highly recommended.

This place does delicious sushi in a brisk but friendly atmosphere. No reservation, so you have to be willing to wait, and then squash into the first available table or bar. But worth it! full range of fish, shellfish, rice, seaweed, rice wine and everything, really everthing, you need for a good sushi meal.

Had dinner at Tomoe as it was recommended to us. We could never have found the place ourselves. It is not fancy or any but the sushi was great.

I lived in NYC about 20 years ago and this place was the GO TO place with waits of about 1.5 hours. They do not take reservations. We visited on Tuesday night at around 8:30 pm and waited 20 minutes. Had we come at 9 pm, the wait would have been even less. It is still a popular place but... More

I stopped by in Tomoe Sushi for lunch and was not disappointed. It's a great and very authentic sushi bar with reasonable prices and fantastic atmosphere. The rolls I've tasted were beyond any praise, as well as the plum wine (they have the one which is less sweet than on average). The place is highly recommended - and it has... More

We had lunch here. Food is fresh and tasty. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. The sashimi lunch plate is huge! Would recommend.

We received the reference of the TOMOE Sushi of a friend and we get suprised. The Sushi was excellent and the prices are very fair. The facility is easy, but good and the service fast, friendly & qualified. The restaurant is very popular, so if you want to eat and enjoy it there, reserve a table a few days before.

An excellent place. Amazing quality of all the ingedients. Starting with the rice cooked to close to perfection all the way to the eels or tuna tartar. When in the City a weekly must go

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.
