For a decade owner and chef Gari Sugio has run a sushi restaurant that is innovative in the way it serves sushi with both cold and warm ingredients, offering more than 130 varieties. Sushi of Gari 46 focuses primarily on serving Gari’s “Signature Omakase” Sushi dinner which shows off his expertise with marinated and spiced raw and slightly cooked ingredients, in addition to a menu of traditional Japanese dishes. The sake selection, by Gari Sugio, is one of the best in town along with a limited wine selection of fine wines.

Please note: Sushi Bar reservation is not available online. Please contact the restaurant directly.

Poor. Server kept pushing us to finish and leave even though it was under 1 hour total and we ordered more than $150. Would put unfinished items onto our plates for us to clear the table. Sushi was mediocre - seaweed lacked any texture and the shrimp tempura made my lips swell upon eating. The ac had also broken this night and the fish was lukewarm, which I hope was because of the rice and not because of fridge issues. Overall negative experience - I was shocked to hear this had any sort of Michelin recommendation/affiliation.

The food was good - almost very good. But not great. I'll admit I'm a bit spoiled - I live in the Bay Area and only eat sushi at a handful of places that make truly exceptional sushi. I had the Omakase and it was close to what I get on the west coast. But for the cost and the hype I'd read online, I expected it to match or even exceed what I'd experienced.

I have eaten at Sushi by Gari in other neighborhoods many times and have loved it. Sushi of Gari 46 was horrible: the sushi was chewy and nearly inedible. The other food was not even mediocre. I will never go back.

There are better restaurants available for less; to receive the invoice not having asked for gives the impression that you want to Kick out guests; also your cash sYstem which indicates how long a guest is sitting at the table confirms this impression;

Really bad experience ! Super expensive for a not even acceptable food! And also they want as to leave soon so they bring quickly the food ... not time to enjoy even the wine! 300 dollars! There is so so many other better options and cheaper in NY.

The restaurant was good. Our experience however was not outstanding. The best things were the chef's signature dishes. They were everything they claimed to be. Unfortunately the menu was somewhat limited and other items we ordered did not quite measure up. For the price we expected excellence from all.

Two other quibbles, When we arrived, the restaurant was empty except for 1 table occupied by a young couple. We were seated directly next to these people, basically invading their space. We apologized to the couple and they were gracious and acknowledged the same.

Last quibble, our waitress while polite and attentive did not manage to adequately inform us about the food we were eating. She pointed to the items and named them but when we asked for clarity, she quickly repeated what she had already said, which we hadn't understood the first time. So we did not really know or appreciate what we were eating.

service was very good. this restaurant is crowded (you will make new friends on either side of you whether you want to or not). ambiance is nothing special if you want romance go elsewhere. food convinced me that overspending for sushi has to be a commodity that i would sell short. 200+ for two people with small bottle of saki may be your thing .... if so, go.

Food was very good, but first, it was not possible to understand the waitress with her Asian accent at all. Then, after we finally understood that the omakase menu is 105 USD each, she said we can order from the menu, but they only gave us one menu, when it turns out there is another menu with the list of roll options. and then it turned out that you can order single pieces from the omakase options, but this we only found out when we saw our neighbours order...
