Ridiculously expensive

Ok...only thing we knew before we got here was that it was a 450 dollar pp menu. When the bill arrives we see add ons of beef which we didn't order and truffle ice team which we didn't ask for either. We ate it and savored yes, but paying an additional 500 dollars was no not worth it!! We loved... read more

I challenged myself on a whim to have a good meal (easy) and keep the bill under $100 (hard). I succeeded this time. On my next go I'll have to let myself explore the menu more. Recommend any of the sushi and the cold Yamagata soba with tempura.

Great food but expensive. We are a little bit nervous because we read that restaurant would be very expensive, but the food was fantastic and we we happy at end.

My wife avoids sushi but loved it here. The truffled beef was wonderful. Very expensive but a great experience with perfect service.

A complete disappointment....Having been to Japan numerous times and actually having eaten at chef's restaurant on the Ginza.....I came here for a splurge on my birthday....The space is serene; service very good though a bit rigid...The food...unimaginative; unbelievably overpriced; boring; dull; an absolute dud....Sushi Yasuda is 10 times better....I am having difficulty writing this because I simply do not know...

Amazingly delicious. The soft shell crab was the best I have ever had (and I order them a lot!) Wonderful mushroom and cauliflower soup and impeccable sushi.

Overall disappointing. My husband and I dined here in the past week and we felt the food and service did not match the 3 michelin star rating or the price. We have eaten at many 3 michelin star restaurants and are still baffled as how this restaurant got 3 stars. The restaurant claims to have a 25 course chef tasting.... More

Excellent service - chef charming and wait staff attentive but not intrusive. Gorgeous Hinoki wood bench. Food amazing - freshest fish I've ever had ..... Sea urchin flown in from Hokkaido that morning. Will return when next in NYC. Michelin stars well deserved. A luxurious indulgence.

Sushi fabulous but staff were a little stiff- chefs and waiters. The food was fast and plenty of it. Some portions were too large actually so we felt full before the best part of the meal - the sushi. Wagyu beef was pretty good. I asked the waiter to leave the wagyu and bring the next course and he told... More

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.
