Exceptional quality Japanese food delivered in multiple small plates. It's pretty, exceptionally tasty and considering its New York not bad value. No California I'll here and that's good in my book.

Food was very good and creative. Ordered 5 course meal. Everything was very creative and tasty. Portions very small. This is a unique place to go for dinner after having a huge lunch. Not sure it was worth price even for NYC

My mother and I decided to have two different meal courses. I had the $65 authentic 6 course dinner, and she had the $98 6 course kaiseki meal. There was a little overlap, but I definitely understand why her meal cost so much more. At the same time, I definitely enjoyed my meal. Both run through the range of cooking... More

This is not your average Japanese restaurant. The quality of the food, preparation and service sets this place apart. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but you will feel like an honored guest at a lavish banquet, and this makes it a great choice for a relaxed meal with family and friends, to celebrate special occasions. Do not expect a... More

We came here based on Zagat reviews and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and attentive. The dining experience was fun and adventurous. Everything was top notch especially the wagyu beef.

We selected this small Japanese restaurant on the basis of its very high ratings and positive reviews, and we were very pleased. It is owned and run by husband (chef) and wife (hostess) team, who clearly take great pride in their business. The food was exceptionally good -- they offer a choice of set menus, which vary by the number... More

Kaiseki set menus - food quality is very good, service is very good, atmosphere is plain, overall experience was very good. Long story short, if your choice is between the "regular" and "authentic" sets, choose authentic unless you stumbled in here by accident and don't know or care what kaiseki is. If your choice is between regular/authentic or chef's special,... More

If you are in to Omakase then this is the place.You always have a personal relation with the chef if you are at the bar. Sometimes he i serving only your group and you do not feel that there is bunch of the guest at the restaurant
