This place was a great stop for sushi with very reasonable prices. Generous portions and delicious rolls. The drinks were also really amazing. But I only give them 4 stars because service was lacking and it seemed to take forever for a person to ask...us if we wanted anything. If the service would have been on par then they get all my stars.More

The food was excellent, fresh and good value for a platter of sushi .. the waiter tried to up sell a plate when it arrived it was far too much and we said no way not for us .. the manager gladly took it away...and lesson learnt by us for sure .. it did smell of burning cooking oil but the quality of the sushi made up for itMore

This restaurant is next to our CitizenM hotel and steps away from the Winter Garden Theatre. Service was quick and the food very tasty and good. Small restaurant and can fill up fast and get busy.

Have been invited to this restaurant as a business guest having been given the idea that it is one of the top japanese restaurants in NYK. Our first impression was very good as staff were very friendly and prompt. They also have a nice bar...on the other side. Main restaurant area was a bit 'cramped' in space and there was an apparent smell of fried food in the air (which unfortunately remained on our clothes well after we left). Food came astonishingly fast and very well presented - however taste was not reminishent of real japanese food. Even the soy sauce felt 'fusioned'-thick sweet. I have only tried sushi dishes. An overall, average experience.More

Pre-Christmas dinner for three. We split several apps and sashimi bites. The Japanese fried chicken was overcooked, dry and pretty tasteless. Sashimi items (yellowtail toro, tuna, scallop) were excellent. Rock shrimp tempura app was equally good. Looking at my receipt and comparing it to the...menu on Natsumi's website, however, I see that we were charged higher prices in every case. What's up with that? Service was a bit scattered. Some items came quickly; others took far too long. The original plan wasn't to split apps, but when one person is served and the others have to wait 15 minutes, splitting is the obvious solution to the service issue.More

We wanted a convenient spot for a quick pre-theater meal. This place was perfect. Very close to the theater and easy to have a quick meal. The food was very good. Mostly sushi. Fish was fresh and prepared properly.

I was working alone in NYC and wanted to eat somewhere that wouldn't be awkward solo. The place had a chill, darker, evening vibe where I felt comfortable to eat on my own. Good mid-ranged price sushi.

This restaurant is a hidden gem!! I come here all the time and when I can’t come, I deliver! The sushi is fresh. They have great lunch specials. They have incredible appetizers like Shumai, edamame, and dumplings. They have wine and beer happy hours. Most...importantly right now though, you can order through yelp and grub hub during covid 19 crisis!! I love coming here for lunch, dine in and happy hour and delivery and wanted the world to know :) enjoy folks!! Support local and eat delicious food at homeMore

Stayed at the hotel here and used the bar a couple of times after a day out in the city . Cool bar with what seemed like a lot of well heels locals using it . Then one night after a show we arrived late...and were welcomed to our seats . Food was out of this world and all the plates arriving around us also looked fantastic. Really nice atmosphere in the restaurant and staff very helpful. The carpaccio of tuna was a highlight and melted in the mouth. Would definitely revisit. Put this in your list of places to eat.More

Great pre-theater dinner spot! Quick service and fresh sushi. The tables are in close proximity with each other and offers an opportunity for one to strike up a conversation with fellow diners.

This was our first visit to Natsumi. It’s in a hotel. It was a pre-theater dinner. Traffic was awful and we were 10 minutes late. The host kept us waiting for 15 minutes, walking around to see if people were going to get up from...their table. Others were waiting, too. In between he answered Seamless calls. We were finally seated and ordered. The shrimp tempura with veggies was delicious. I ordered teriyaki steak for my entree and it came out cold... I mean COLD! I sent it back, looking at my watch and getting nervous. The theater had said in an email that latecomers would not be seated. I told the host we had a curtain to make. They were making me a new order, and it came out absolutely raw. I had originally ordered rare and made it clear I didn’t want it “blue” with a cold center. The host said “You ordered it rare.” I replied that it was raw! Back it went. Finally, a good one arrived. It was delicious, but I had twenty minutes to eat dinner. No time for the tempura cheesecake dessert I was looking forward to. When I said something to the host about the time factor he replied “You were late!” That’s not how you address a patron of your establishment! I sure didn’t like this guy! I wolfed my meal down and we got the check. Wonder of wonders, the waiter said there was no charge for my entree! At least they did the right thing. Sadly, the food was delicious, but they overbook and the place was a madhouse. What a shame. I don’t think we’d go back.More
