Great for lunch and for dinner. At lunch they close off half of the restaurant so its nice and cozy and the wait staff is able to see whats going on.

We live on the Upper West Side and could pick among a dozen Japanese places. We love Kouzan the best. Wonderful, very fresh Sushi with some delicious rolls such as spicy salmon.Attentive service. They offer a wide range of interesting cocktails. They also have the usual Japanese restaurant fare for the less adventurous members of your group.

The atmosphere was very cozy on a cold night. The servers were very friendly and attentive, while not being obnoxious about turning over the table like some japanese places. They serve some unique rolls (the dragon roll was tasty) and the standard servings were average. The California roll was actually bland, but the crunchy, spicy salmon was quite tasty. Their seaweed salad tasted a bit odd, but not sure if that was unique to that visit or not. OK selection of wine and I'm told the sake was good. For the UWS, it was reasonable. $120 for 2 adults and a kid with alcohol.

Lovely, well made Japanese food, with ample servings, good service, and not breathtakingly expensive. If you are in the Upper West Side neighborhood and like Japanese food, this cannot be passed up!

This stylish upper west side restaurant has excellent sushi and more. Try the Miso Eggplant appetizer, any of the teriyaki dishes or the bento box dinners. The service is friendly and efficient. The food and ambiance is far better than your average sushi bar.
