What a disappointment — loved the one on the UWS but this is not that. I can handle small dark rooms if the food is right but this was so average it was sad. Nothing special, no real flavors but a cost that reflected a Michelin star restaurant. Over priced, weak food, ok service, nothing special ambiance. Sad. Would never have thought this was a Gari restaurant.

Service was very rushed and a staff person took garbage from the kitchen though the restaurant out the front door and it made a very foul odor. Food was fine but very expensive.

Sushi of Gari is not what it used to be! This was one of our go-to spots for Japanese and sushi, but not anymore. Limited menu, high prices, a boring wine list, and a very expensive sake list. Bottles of sake should be offered at every price level!

Sake options are limited. I like organic w/out added sulphites due to allergy. You should offer this. Also, my son ordered a sushi special and it came w/ eggplant sushi which he didn't like. The roll was crab which was also an inferior roll for the prices you charge. We love your food but it isn't close to good value. I ordered 4 special pieces of sushi and was happy to pay for that. It was delicious as was the Hijiki salad.

I've eaten at both the upper west and theater district locations. Both are great - the fish is definitely at notch above the average sushi place. I look forward to it every time. Service is always very good and speedy (without feeling rushed). Huge fan of Gari!

Must love the element of surprise. Menu is designed to leave choices up to the chefs. Very popular spot, so expect close proximity where table conversation appears shared with neighboring tables. Unique experience but very enjoyable.

This was quite possibly the worst sushi I’ve ever had, and I don’t say that casually. My daughter and I also got sick from the meal. And it was pricey for what it was. It was rated highly and I was very disappointed. The waitstaff was attentive but I truly couldn’t understand a word out server said.

The quality of food and sushi was really average at best.
Also ordered a chicken teriyaki which was soaked in their sauce. Underwhelming overall experience but admittedly I am spoiled by sushi in Asia.

Totally some of the best sushi in NYC in a simple and welcoming environment, with a welcoming family like vibe. And one that does not break the pocketbook. The 8pm Broadway show crowd does make it a bit hectic during rush hour, but then it is always good to know that a later in the evening reservation should be easier to come by. Delicious.

The fish didn’t seem as fresh as usual and the atmosphere was noisy and closed in. Not up to usual Sushi of Gari experience and not consistent with high price point.

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.

The waitress was able to provide for all our needs, dinner arrived in short order and was delicious. My husband got the "chef's choice" which was the best (and the most creative) sushi he had ever eaten.
