Everything was amazing. Wanted to note my server C-tu (not sure how his name is spelt) was a terrific server and made my chef’s special omakase much better than it already was.
Very special experience. The food is well presented and very delicious and fresh. The space feels very fancy but you do not have to dress aa fancy. The servers are very friendly and helpful.
Tables are too tight. Sushi is not very interesting but it’s fresh. Waygu is overpriced for a teeny skewer.
Premium omakase was an AMAZING experience. Fantastic creative bites. The fish is the freshest I’ve ever had - brought tears to my eyes. The service is amazing - present and attentive, but not all over us. We had a lovely romantic valentines dinner here and will be back for sure.
I ordered lunch special. The sashimi was fresh. The food was tasty. The service was great.
I've been for lunch multiple times and like it quite a bit. I will not however, return again for dinner. We were seated 20 minutes late - even after repeatedly being told that they were just setting the table. I had to go back to finally locate the hostess and get the truth about what was going on. Beyond that we were stuck in a windowless back room with no personality. The food was fine, but given the challenges in the restaurant seating us to begin with and the complete lack of ambience I wouldn't bother with Wokuni again - too many Japanese options in the city and nearby.
Wokuni runs an efficient lunch with good options, but get there early for the limited quantity items.
Very nice lunchi, liked bara shirashi, sashimi lunch and wokuni don (limited serving). however lunch wine (good value for $3) is not so nice quality...couldn't finish even tiny glass.
Everything was fresh and delicious. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Would definitely return.
The food tastes really great but was a little too pricy.
Sushi was overpriced and average at best. Got the omakasa servers barely could explain what was being served. Would never go back back
Really delicious sushi and great service. I wish there was a place to hang your coat.
Good food ran out of a lot of stuff. Sushi great salmon was a bit over cooked
I'll be back soon!Good deal for happy hour!
This was our first time at Wokuni. The food was slightly different from what we were used to but different does not mean bad. In this case, different means very tasty. We had several appetizers and 2 main entrees and will definitely return.
Good spot for traditional food. Tuna collar was perfect!
An unbelievable dining experience! Great food, staff, and our party of 8 were seated in the semi-private room in the back.
Will no doubt be coming back here again in the future. A great place for friends, family, and corporate events!
The restaurant is very modern and a nice place to sit but the music was loud. The agedashi tofu was very mushy and didn't have much flavor at all. The california roll was way too expensive for only 6 small pieces. The nigiri was fine but again, very expensive -- $10 for two pieces. The food came quickly.
The food was excellent but the wait staff is slow and inattentive. Tried flagging them down for additional drinks and food, just gave up took forever to just get the bill.
Wokuni is hands down my favorite sushi in NYC. Great atmosphere, wonderful staff and fun, creative cocktails. Most importantly, the food is always delicious -- the sushi is so fresh and flavorful.
A great Japanese restaurant in my neighborhood. The fish is very fresh and the options are great.
The ambiance is zen-like and a nice place to have a quick lunch or dinner.
One of my daughter's favorite restaurants based on their chicken skewers and mochi — one of my favorite places for sushi and the shiratama zenzai, which is up there with the best desserts in NYC. Great service, too.
One of the best in NYC!
The lunch special is an amazing deal. Good, quality sashimi.
Wokuni is a more affordable, nobu menú like option in culinary starved East midtown. Good selection of hot and cold dishes. The acoustics aren’t great so it can get loud when crowded, but the service is attentive and the sushi is top quality. Also like the gyoza, skewers and sea bass!
Exellent food and service, my favorite place Wokuni is.
Amazing place to try different plates. Food is fresh and delicious
V short menu and some items were unavailable for a 1pm lunch. What was there was good. Not great.
Happy hour deal is pretty good, however oyster quality is not stable (we visited a coupld of times, but this day each peaces were small and poor quality). Sake glass (pouring) is very small as well compare to other Japanese restaurant by the glass...
Beautifully designed restaurant. Very striking as you first enter. Sat at the sushi bar which is much wider than most and like a table top so you have plenty of room. Very comfortable. Really excellent food and service. Not rushed at all. Will definitely return.
Came to Wokuni because I appreciated their interest in serving sustainably farmed tuna from Japan. It did not disappoint. Got a lunch special with tuna, yellowtail, salmon, uni, and tuna tartare. All were amazing, including the salmon (which I am particularly picky about). My girlfriend got a grilled salmon, which was fantastic, and we shared a fried tofu appetizer which was excellent as well.
We sat at the counter, which isn't the most pretty seat but being about to watch the chef's prep and plate fish is always a fun view when eating sushi. The service was excellent and attended to our needs promptly. The entire meal only cost about $60+tip, which is an absolute steal for quality sushi in NYC.
I look forward to coming here again and trying the omakase (only available at dinners).
Really great service and even more exceptional food. Everything was so fresh and delicious and I can’t wait to come back again.
The food it self was not well balanced with the flavored. Saggy fatty fries and tamboura. Wagyu steak which was too salty, and salads with no flavor at all. Very disappointing
I celebrated my birthday on Christmas day with my husband and a couple of friends and we had a great time and excellent food
They should not limit the number of Uokunidon served daily.
Lunch is great!
Kaisen don and all the sashimi are good always!
No coat check. But not enough space around the table.
And Too much cook for Tonkatsu.
Love this place!
