Best sushi in NYC

Have not been to Yasuda in a few years. The quality of the fish and the understated, elegant presentation is unmatched. service was professional and very attentive. Will be back next time I'm in NYC!

Having heard all of the wonderful things about Yasuda in NY, I was expecting a true Japanese sushi experience. Unfortunately, it was good but not great. The meal was typical sushi with soft fish and rice, the usual suspects, with nothing unique or wonderful about it. It was more "American" style than Japanese style, and was no better than dozens...

I went to Yasuda for the first time in May for a solo dinner... I enjoyed it so much that I came back the next day with friends for lunch. I had the omakase for dinner and the chef's selections were amazing. I ended up paying 140$ but it was worth it. A couple of weeks later I went to... More

Our reservation was at 9:15 . We were seated by 9:30 and got Omakase. The fish was delicious but the service so rushed we couldn't enjoy it. They close promptly at 10:30 and they were done with us at 10:25. No tipping but the cost for three people was just south of $500.

After going to Naomichi Yasuda's place in Tokyo I was worried that the NY location might not be up to standards since Yasuda's in Tokyo is outstanding! Taking my girlfriend for a date night I can really say that it was a nice experience. They kept Japanese customs meaning good service, great quality food and no need for tipping. We... More

I have been to every sushi restaurant in an NYC's Top 10 list. None can hold a candle to Yasuda. From the simplicity of the setting, the quality of the rice, it cannot be matched. While other places have cost 20% more, Yasuda does not break the bank. Considering how good everything is, they could easily charge more than they... More

The service staff was very attentive but not but not so much to be intrusive. We had omakase and were treated to some excellent cuts of fish. I would recommend this place and would like to return.

After-ballet omikase experience par excellent. Allowing the chef to pick for you is always preferable to a la carte because of their knowledge. There are, however, no bad choices. This is not 2 day-old supermarket sushi, and you pay for it. As you should. Very modern almost hidden façade greets you as you enter open, well-lit sushi bar with tables... More

Having been fortunate enough to eat at some of the world's most sought out sushi houses (Jiro, Saito, Nakazawa, etc), let me start off by saying the sushi here is some of the best I have ever had outside of Japan. The quality is unparalleled! The restaurant is elegant and simple, just like the food. The restaurant does not try... More

The fish is so fresh and of such good quality that it doesn't need to be over complicated. Simple sushi and sashimi are excellent here.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
