    Great date spot, salmon sashimi is so fresh and delicious. Keep it simple and you'll be fine. Spicy crab roll was just meh.

    Undercooked and overpriced, avoid the Mountain Yam skewers. Understated and overyummy, that Black Cod is definitely a winner.

    If you had to get one thing it should be the ox tail and marrow fried rice. The absolute best fried rice, ever.

    I've only had the sushi here and it's just "alright." It doesn't stand out from the rest. The ambiance isn't even really of a true Izakaya spot. But if you need a new date spot, this place is that.

    The ambiance is top-notch. If you're in for a tasting adventure, dive into the omakase. The rest of the menu is just as delectable with a wide variety of choices. Pricey, but worth it overall.

    I'm a vegetarian, so when I eat meat or fish I make sure it's well worth it. I must say Blue Ribbon isn't just hype, probably the best sushi I have ever had. Will be coming back again for sure.

    Offers wider menu options in a trendier space than the Soho restaurant. In addition to top notch sushi, the chicken liver mousse and bone marrow & oxtail rice are just as good as everyone says!

    I know that 'flight of vegetables' sounds like the least exciting flight since anna paquin bored us to death in 'fly away home,' but it's actually a really really good appetizer. go for it!
