Food absolutely perfect, but....

This is very close to being the best sushi I have ever had but unfortunately it was tainted by drunk people at the bar. Upon arrival, we were asked to sit at the bar as our table was not quite ready. It took 45 minutes for them to prepare our table! In that time, we and other couples were being... read more

I have been to dinner at Sushi Samba many times and the food and service have always been amazing. I recently threw an event there (sushi making and sake 101) and it was BEYOND my expectation. The food was delicious, ambiance was very classy and beautiful, and the waitstaff was incredibly attentive. They also paid close attention to all food... More

Innovative and delicious. The menu may be a bit confusing (most people don't have a lot of experience at a Brazilian sushi house) at first but just ask the waitstaff and they'll help you. If I looked at the menu I might think there's nothing I want to eat here but every single item is delicious. Start with the El... More

The food, oh, the food! To put it simply, it lived up to the hype. The coconut milk ceviche was interesting and very tasty. We also enjoyed the tuna tatami, churrasco and rock shrimp. The service was good, but not excellent. Our server could've been more present. We had to flag down other staff down to get attention once or... More

We frequently visit the London branch of Sushisamba and have always had exceptional food and service so were very excited to visit another branch. However coming to the New York branch all we experienced was rude staff with terrible customer service,poor quality food and awful atmosphere. Our food was forgotten by the chefs while other tables were being tended to... More

I was attracted to eat here because when I did the Sex and the City bus tour in 2013, we were informed that the scene where Samantha throws her martini in Richard Wright's face was filmed here. So I made reservations for a late lunch after I arrived in NYC on Friday, November 14th. I had a hectic day trying... More

Born from Japanese immigration to South America this unique menu brings together the cusines of Japan, Peru and Brazil. Here with a tour group we were served a special tasting menu, something they will do for any size party. We had an interesting parade of dishes, including sushi, that I found delicious and fun.

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
