It was beautiful but the service was incredibly slow and I never even got my entire meal. The food was also just ok.

Very enjoyable. We were worried about being a little late without our entire party. They seated us. No problem. The food is so good. Loved the sushi selections and nice cocktail offerings. Very reasonable prices. Do not hesitate about Haru.

Our first evening in NYC for my daughter’s 18th birthday trip. Wanted sushi and found this place on Open Table & reviews were good and menu looked great. First problem: address they use is actually the business office next door. The map rerouted us around the block & when we called for directions, the hostess gave nonsensical directions in an entirely glib manner. We finally found our way & when we checked in mentioned the address issue. Wow - the three staff at the host stand essentially informed us we were idiots and that the whole block has the same address so there’s NO WAY to give an accurate address. Of course, never mind that EVERY map app identified us as being at their actual address 221, not 229. Oh well. For punishment, we were seated between two business parties. One was incredibly loud & offended they had to move their belongings. My daughter & I communicated entirely by text.

We may be from “flyover territory” but we aren’t bumpkins. The sushi was average at best - I’ll put any Chicago sushi place up against this restaurant. I make better shishito peppers at home. Needless to say, would never recommend or revisit.

It's our first time being here and it was disappointed. We ordered eel over rice, sashimi, seasonal sushi roll, lobster taco and miso filet mignon. The lobster taco was blend, the filet mignon was tasteless and soft (weird), and sashimi and sushi were not fresh, the eel sauce was too sweet and the eel was a bit fishy too. Overall quality was bad, definitely can not stand out for a decent Japanese restaurant in Manhattan area. Being that said, the food was way too overpriced.

Some of the tables for 2 are very close together which can make conversations a bit difficult. No one sat next to us until the end which was nice. There is a happy hour menu with some good choices at reasonable prices and we did not have to sit at the sushi bar. The sushi was very fresh and the choices of rolls were interesting. I would go back again. Good place for pre-theatre dining.

Fish was NOT fresh! My tuna sashimi had a too-fishy smell and I was slightly sick to my stomach after eating. And as someone who eats sushi 2x a week all over the city, I was surprised that such a busy restaurant didn’t seem to have fresh fish.

We went here for the convenience factor being right across from the Harry Potter play for the 2 hour break. The food was good...nothing special, but the service was TERRIBLE. We were never offered anything but tap water to drink, the waitress came to our table, never once told us her name or anything and asked us if we were ready. That was our greeting. They were NOT very busy at the time so I’m not
really sure what the reasoning was behind the whole customer service fail but whatever it was...we were very displeased.

7pm reservation and we were seated after another reservation from 7:30. We had 10 minutes to order and eat to make it to our destination on time. The front desk told us the table was being cleaned when we arrived, which was a farce as no tables were open.

The food was fine and our waitress, when she show up to the table, was pleasant and accommodating to help expedite us. We sat for probably 7-8 minutes before she came.

We ordered two small plates and one entree, waiter didn't ask if we want some meal before the other. After waiting for 35 min we asked where is our meal and waiter said that we didn't specified if we want small plates first, she assumed that everything should be brought at the same time. If you add another 10 min for filet mignon to be brought to the table it is total for 45 min wait time for entree. Too long I would say.

We have visited Haru Sushi many times. It has never disappointed us. This time was no exception. One of the items ordered was the lobster taco. Simply put, it was delicious with big lobster pieces in it. The sushi rolls are always fresh and tasty. This restaurant is always our go to when we are in the Times Square area.

Haru Sushi was busy on the night we went for dinner but we were seated swiftly and orders for drinks and appetizers were taken swiftly. It wasn't very noisy, our server came back several times to bring our food and drinks, take our dinner order and remind us happy hour was ending shortly. The food was amazing as always. It was beautifully played and well portioned. Can't wait to come back on our next trip!

We went between shows for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was right across the street. We were seated right away with our reservation. Someone came over right away to give is water and take our drinks. Our server was great and gave us recommendations. The food was delicious. We split hot saki which was affordable but the drinks on the menu were pretty pricey. The atmosphere and cozy and intimate.
