My wife & I had a quick trip to New York City recently and wanted to find a Japanese restaurant in the area where we were staying. We found Iroha and decided to try it out. The atmosphere is fine but not like an exclusive, romantic restaurant. Like many places in New York you're seated very close to other people so a quiet, private conversation is not possible. The food and service, however, are excellent. My wife & I both had chirashi sushi which had a variety of very good & fresh fish and a nice size portion especially for the price and being in New York. The staff were very attentive and we lacked for nothing. We noticed a large number of Asian people eating there which is always a good sign in an Asian restaurant. When we return to New York we'll definitely try it again.
