We went on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The food was excellent and the service was quick...but not too quick. We had the tuna, salmon, veggie futomaki, tempura and edamame. I am not a huge fish eater...the tuna was excellent. I was very happy with the meal.

This restaurant is close to my office and I come here for lunch from time to time before it gets crowded. I always order the Chirashi which has been consistently good. The service has been quite impeccable too.

Lovely atmosphere, nice outdoor seating if desired. Pleasant staff. Good Pricing - but the food was only ok. Sushi tasted a little "fishy".

I had a bad experience at this restaurant. The food was ok but severely overpriced for what it was. When the bill came out, my friends and I each gave a 15per cent tip and paid our 20per cent tax. The waitress took our bill but 2minutes later came back out with a new bill stating that we had not... More

We stopped off at this restaurant after a day of shopping looking for a tasty light lunch. As we were being seated we were told (much to our dismay) that we could not order sushi. We decided that it was ok and we ordered from the menu but we were told that our first two choices were not available. We... More

Have to put in a plug for the way Shinbashi (specifically Emiko) handles arrangements for larger groups. Our organization held one of its annual events here,starting with cocktails on the mezz and later descending into their basement room for a buffet dinner. Everything went smoothly. The wine and beers were well-chosen, spirits not so much. The food is quite good,... More

I've tried this restaurant many times but haven't had a chance to review because it's across from my office so I take it for granted by putting it off. Well, to rate this restaurant can be tough because the host, manager and the servers are just wonderful. Sushi and Sashimi are above average. We came here on Christmas Eve so... More

In NYC with our son and his girlfriend, and our first choice for Asian that night was too crowded. Our son suggested we retrace our steps back to Shinbashi as we had passed it along the way. Turned out fantastic! The quality of our entire dinner and evening was outstanding. The wait staff was really helpful and friendly, and the... More

I asked the waiter for still mineral water. But the bottle came to my table with no label, already opened and with rust around neck. It tasted like tap water.

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.
