Kanoyama's omakase is probably one of my favorites now. Dinging one point for service and the first course, but other than that, all other aspects of the omakase were amazing. This place is really popular (for non-omakase), and hence really busy, so it makes sense...that service is on the slower end. The first course was onion soup. I found that to be a strange intro to the other courses, and wasn't a big fan. But for all other courses (including dessert) and sushi, I was really impressed. The crab/uni, the perfectly seared toro, the anago, and the scallop especially stood out.More

We got extra good service because I went with a good friend in the industry that supplies their alcoholic beverages. Kanoyama gets some of the very limited bottles of a special sake (100 bottles/year in the US) because they deserve it. The owner is very...humble and talented. Amazing combinations in the starters using high-end truffle and other special condiments. I can’t wait to go again! As a very picky Japanese, I approve.More

It was awesome: nice drinks, delicious Chiefs sushi plate, soft Shell crab and upon recommendation an appetizer made from fish liver: all of excellent quality. Our kids who are not in sushi and fish found excellent alternatives as well.

This is my favorite place to have a quick sushi bite in the East Village area. The menu is super comprehensive, the servers are super efficient and—most importantly—the fish is super fresh. The chefs prepare the rolls in the main dining area, which is always...a treat to watch. Be sure to call ahead a time to reserve a spot, especially if you plan on going for a dinner sitting. Naturally, it gets very packed very quickly.More

Really great value for money! The food is very, very good, and the prices are reasonable for a Japanease restaurant. Skip the shrimp tempura uramakis, they are just not good, everything else we had was great.

Loved this place!!! The food was amazing!! The best sushi I’ve ever had. They definitely deserve their Michelin stars. The service was really nice and the check was surprisingly low. Highly recommend this place

I’ve been wanting to try Kanoyama for a while. It’s a casual place with a large menu. Something for everyone. One dish I didn’t care for were the boiled dumplings that came out in a hot pot type device. Fairly bland. The chawanmushi was okay...but a bit bland. The spider roll was excellent. All the sashimi tasted quite good. Particularly enjoyed the ankimo, which was a huge portion.More

We came here for a family dinner. The sushi is fresh. Their cooked food is also delicious. I would definitely come back again.
