Haru's sushi/sashimi is always excellent. The service was outstanding. Everything came out pretty quickly for a made to order dinner, There are other sushi places on the UWS that are less expensive but most are inconsistent. Haru is worth the slightly more expensive price.

Consistently good food though prices seem to have gone up noticeably. Cold seating host staff and had to flag wait staff a bunch of times.

Good solid food, great dumplings, solid sushi, Calamari needed help hard and chewy, Wine list mostly pricey except for a few. Overall, staff were outstanding but kitchen needs to add a little more zest to up its game ..its the little touches that count....my guests enjoyed it.

We've been to a few of Haru’s locations, but the Amsterdam location is our favorite. Get a reservation or you will wait to get a table. Do the Lobster Tacos - they are incredible.

If I could change one thing, I would add a real champagne to the menu - along with champagne flutes. For now, the splits of Prosecco will suffice.

The food is great, and the look of the restaurant is nice but the service is not terrible warm or inviting. They are there to get you seated, bring you sushi and serve you your check. This is not a neighborhood gem.

Our first time to the Amsterdam location and to our surprise one of our old servers from The Chelsea location was working. Albert Long is fantastic server. Very nice person.We started with the Tuna Tataki and Lobster Tacos 2 both amazing. Crispy Tuna Roll and the Sumo roll are can't miss, just wonderful. Only beer wine and saki at this location so The Della Scala Pinot Grigio and Asahi Black beer made for yet another perfect evening at HARU.

Really disappointing. We used to eat at Haru all the time, and we loved it. But the quality of the food has really fallen in the last couple years. It’s gone from one of our favorites to a restaurant we won’t go back to

We always have a great time at Haru. They treat us well every visit. Order the Lobster Tacos - you will not be sorry. It would be nice if they added a true champagne to the menu as it pairs very well with Sushi. For now, the solid of Prosecco will suffice. Always busy - so make sure you have a reservation.

Noisy. We called saying we were slightly late yet they did not hold the reservation (not a major issue, just a "no show" on opentable). Sushi was ok but not memorable.
