We did the omakase and I would say that for your first time, this is something you can try. It's great to sample a selection of different things, but all the chef really does is pick different things off the menu and then charge you according to what you eat. When I return next time, I will most likely only... More

My friend is a sushi expert. That's all he eats. We were meeting up after a 12 year hiatus. He said he would select the place since he's familiar with NYC as he lives in Greenport We walked to the restaurant. They surprisingly had a table for us (the people in front of us had a reservation for over a... More

We chose Omakase menu, and it was superb. Excellent products; you could taste the freshness of the fish offered. It was quite expensive, but honestly it was worth every penny spent there

Excellent Omakase, fabulous selection of sushi, very well executed, superb sake choices. What else can you ask for? Be prepared to pay a big check...absolutely worth the experience!

It's not a bad place. However, it's rated #1 sushi place and so I was a bit disappointed. Tried better places like Gari and Seki. It's just as expensive but taste is just not up to par. I hate the brightly lit sushi bar and just did not feel inviting like the Seki sushi bar. I really hate the wait... More

The whole experience reminded me of beloved sushi places in Tokyo - a modest soothing interior, experienced and knowledgeable chefs and freshest fish prepared to perfection. Our waiter on the other hand, with an abrupt attitude, was a character from a different story, but it was only a tiny downfall which we ignored. Will definitely be back!

The food , service and atmosphere are one of the best. We had a little inconvenient having diner there.One person in the group could not have sodium and we ask for a sauce sodium free or even sweet and the answer was that that kind of sauce could not be served because there was not pairing with the food.

I've been sitting at the sushi-bar once a year for several years now and I've never had better sushi and sashimi, even blocks from the Tokyo fish market. Every little thing is perfect. Of course the fish is fresh, but the rice is perfect and better than any I've had around the world. Each sushi piece is a surprise, with... More

I have gone to a lot of good places to eat sushi and this is by far the best I have eaten. Try the Omakase and let the chef impress you with his creations. I have never tasted Uni like that!

Sushi Yasuda is one of my husband's favorite restaurants in the city. We've been there numerous times and we always enjoyed our experience thoroughly. However, the last time we went there the atmosphere wasn't what it used to be. We always liked the quiet, calmness of the restaurant but this time we went, it was bustling. Not only that, there...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
