Japanese · TriBeCa · $$$
Dishes prepared on the robata grill dominate the menu at this TriBeCa spot by Masa Takayama, also serving raw and fried Japanese plates, plus the chef’s first burger.

Food and service were spectacular, once seated, but there was a 45 minute wait for our table to be ready for our reservation and quite a lot of tension over it with members of my party, leaving a bad taste in the mouths of a few. They also seated us initially at a table to small for our group when they mistook our party for another. Perhaps they were having an off night. After seating us, they did a wonderful job with everything. I highly recommend the skewers, and the sushi was amazing, especially the toro. Their sliced beef dish was cooked to perfection. The restaurant itself is beautifully laid out and the scene encouraged good times. Delicious.

Great food and atmosphere. Waiters ignored our requests for sides multiple times and that is the only reason for the 1 star deduction.

Nice deco and service but food was that great. There was no Japanese chef. absolutely no Japanese customers but me, that's a sign for bad food. kushiyaki was tasteless, sauce was weird. Sushi rice was not seasoned properly, ginger was way too sour. $12 for wasabi was ridiculous. overall, it was not good experience. I guess ok for Americans but not for me. I definitely won't go back.
