This restaurant delivers a ton of value. I lived in Japan for years and am very picky. This place does it right and would satisfy any salaryman.

We made an early reservation through open table and it had an "offer" which were drink specials. When we get to the restaurant, the waitress tells us that those prices are only available if you sit at the bar. This is not written anywhere on open table. Otherwise, the food is tasty. Expensive, but tasty.

I would recommend it to my friends only for celebrating important days, like anniveries etc. One more thing i need to mention here is that the time to wait for entrees is a little long (around 40 mins). But 0verall, the food and service are good. The environment is good too.

Very nice staff. Busy which is reasonable considering it was Valentines Day. Menu was great with the pairing. Oddly, the sushi course itself was a bit boring but the rest of the meal made up for it, and the fish was definitely fresh. Would go back for lighter fare

Fish didn't taste good. Spicy tuna was a discolored paste vs my preference of actually chopped tuna.It was silent except a few tables at first before they tuned music on. It was an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience. My worst meal over two weeks in NYC.

Cool tiered dining room ascending to the sushi bar. Tables crammed together pretty tight...makes for an intimate dining experience. Sushi tasted great but kinda rough presentation. Great selection of imported (and expensive) Japanese beer. Meal for two with a couple brews cost $100+

Upon checking in, the hostess did not have our OpenTable reservation, but was able to seat us within a few minutes of our arrival. The server was nice, but possibly new. We asked if they had orange juice (figuring it was a full bar), but the server had to check for 5 minutes before reporting back that there was no juice available.

It took about 15-20 mins before we were able to place our order. We waited nearly 25 mins before the miso sea bass came out of the kitchen, burnt on the skin side and tasting soapy/sudsy. My wife finished her sea bass and we had to wait another 10-15 mins before the sushi arrived. The server’s explanation was the sushi chef was new. There were 3 sushi chefs, I watched as the 2 tables next to us finished all of their sushi, paid, and left, BEFORE I even got my sushi. A party of 4 above us received all of their sushi a good 10-15 mins before us, even though they ordered only a few minutes before we did. A large party behind us received their sushi appetizer BEFORE we received our sushi AND they only arrived 5-10 mins they got their appetizer! I kept looking at the sushi counter and there were times 2 chefs were standing around while only the 3rd was making sushi...I still don’t understand why it took so long to make a dozen pieces of nigiri?!

We had a fantastic experience at Nare Sushi, delicate, fresh fish, prepared elegantly and crisp service. We had two of the chef’s choice options and they were both delightful. One of our best meals in New York.

I brought my team out for lunch and had a very bad experience. The service was horrendous. The waiter was either new or inexperienced. I order some appetizers and one of them came after the meal. All of our meal was delivery in pieces and not together. One person did not get his meal until everyone was finish. I had to ask 2 times why the meal hadn’t arrived. The waiter never apology and I decided to tell my dining experience to the manager and he was terrible. He was giving me excusing that they had to do deliveries and lunch time is very busy. I had dine at this place many times and never had such bad experiences. Instead of being apologetic, he has the nerve to say you want some off the bill. I had to tell him at least an apology would be nice. He needs some training in customer service. I would not come back to dine here for sure if this how you treat a good customer.

The Omikase at Nare is as good as it gets. You don't have to spend giant bucks at Nakazawa, Masa, Yasuda, Zo, Uchu, etc. Nare is just as good or better. Sushi Chef Wind is a true master at creating amazing pieces of nigiri with various flavors and textures. The service is excellent as well. Great experience.

Food was good, not the best sushi we’ve ever had, but solid. Relative value was a little misaligned. Pricing similar to nobu, but quality a bit less. Friendly service and nice space.

Do not go for the lunch Omikase. Go only for the Dinner Omikase and only if Sushi Chef Wind is making the sushi. He is a true master sushi chef!!!

If you cannot make sushi rice properly, you cannot serve sushi. The rice was tough and terrible.
One of the waitresses dropped three pieces sushi from another order on the floor and didn't
bother to replace it for the customer. The table next to us had all of their order mixed up
and the kitchen had closed so they were comped a dessert. Don't wait your money. There
are better sushi restaurants in the neighborhood.

Was nice sushi. Say at bar and watched TV by preference so eschewed ambience. No cheap by any means. Would have been happier if manager had not tried to convince me that a red wine which was oxidized was"just fine". Dishonesty never enhances the dining experience
