The “ultimate showstopper” from “sushi master” Daisuke Nakazawa, this “extraordinary” West Village Japanese specializes in “breathtaking” omakase meals served like “a well-oiled machine” at the bar and in a “serene” dining room; scoring reservations remains a “difficult task” and the cost is “off the charts” , but an attached lounge should help on both fronts.

Phenomenal skill in crafting the art of sushi making. It is important to note that this is not a place to satiate hunger. I found myself content in restraint. The sushi is amazing. We were told how to eat, not to add sauce, and do it in one bite. It was a pleasant journey of tasting flavors and textures. Squid was creamy. The Toro melted in my mouth. The uni was remarkably fresh. Great experience. Price is expensive. However, it's not a dinner. It is an experience.

There isn't much I can't say that others haven't gushed over,. High quality, though for me I feel.like some variety would be more enjoyable to me. Besides me, they know what they're doing and do it extremely well, 5 star service from the entire staff throughout the meal. The chairs are so comfy that you quickly forget having to be pushed in to tour seat each time. A very enjoyable meal for me.

This restaurant’s reputation precedes it, and the actual experience here does not disappoint at all - excellent omakase, wine and service. Would definitely recommend the only fish omakase (none of us eat red meat). Each dish is meticulously created and the fish melts in your mouth - my favorite was the scallop. All the flavors are unique and delicious.
