    NYC Restaurant Week goodness $25 for 3 courses. Sashimi entree had the best raw octopus I've ever had and both dessert options-strawberry shortcake or espresso creme brûlée were winners

    If you don't do the Chef's recommended Omakase you're making a HUGE mistake. Highly recommend it! 7 courses and also get a Pinot Noir from Oregon. It will change your life, I assure you!

    Great mix of cooked & raw dishes on the menu. Inventive, artful & very pleasing to the eye & palate. Do I have to say more the owner is an IRON CHEF? Be sure to make room for a scrumptious dessert. <3

    The best stuff is found among the small dishes, including appetizers called zen sai, while the voluminous main courses;a shiso-butter-poached half-lobster and kobe rib braised in red miso. Read more

    This was a masterpiece. The omakase is obviously a must...however the service is what we loved the most. Fresh everything and flavors that hit your mouth like a godamn freight train. Well done.

    You must try the blow fish. It's really rare and expensive but so worth it. You'll never find it anywhere else. The oysters were amazing! Yes, the bathroom was amazing as well. Lol.

    It’s typically tough to snag a last-minute reservation to this Chelsea hot spot, but when you’re dining solo, you can nab a seat at the sushi bar on short notice and nibble soft-shell crab rolls. Read more

    Get seated at the sushi bar so you can see your sushi being made. Everything on the menu is incredible. For dessert try the chilled cheese cake, best i ever had.

    Classy, modern atmosphere w/ great service! The rock shrimp tempura is a great appetizer to start. The mori-monkey bread is to die for; comes with chocolate-banana flavored ice cream. Must try it!

    Awesome place. Great vibe and food. Got the 145 sashimi plate for 2 but honestly the 90 plate is more than enough - one of the few occasions where I can say that I struggled to finish sushi dinner.

    Was treated like a VIP because I'm a returning customer. Had their amazing omakase with lots of Uni, wagyu beef, rock fish, a variety of sushi. All exceptionally delicious. Ask to be served by Michael

    great sushi in NYC : black cod is usually awesome (but I have been disappointed the last time, must try again ;-) and the location is great, close to meatpacking, go there before or after for a drink

    For such a nice restaurant, we had such a kind and patient hostess that really made the experience. The sashimi was divine and the freshest I've tasted. Everything was prepared nicely and tasted great

    great non-sushi options... get the best wagyu (they have a5)! Otherwise the service is very respectable but not punctual -- a Buddakan copycat with minor intimacy.

    Great food and delicious chocolate dessert! Especially delicious cod and sea bass. Ribeye on a hot rock was entertaining and tasty too! This place is somewhat expensive, but definitely worth coming!

    The food, the place, the service... Everything's nice! Even the bathrooms! And is it a coincidence that an Iron Chef's resto is near the studio of The Food Network?! Looove this place!

    I had the omasake, great when you don't want to control your options. Next visit to try: rock shrimp! Next meal there: Oyster foiegras, surf & turf with an orange blossom and chocolate macadamia nut.

    This place is beyond incredible. Start with the wyagu beef carpaccio or the Kakuni (pork belly). Then order either the duck duck duck or one of their ribeyes. Their steak rivals Peter Luger's.

    The appetizers here are phenomenal, especially the Japanese a5 ishi yaki - talk about melt in your mouth! Also all 3 cocktails I got were hits not misses

    Go with a group, order chef's sushi selection and enjoy heaven! 😋 Some of the mains, especially the duck one were too rich, would stick to seafood only.

    Easily one of my favorite places. Decked out in a breathtaking interior, the food is just as impressive. Recommendations include the Crispy Rock Shrimp Tempura and Duck, Duck, Duck, but anything goes.

    Great maki rolls, chicken noodle ramen, Duckx3, braised miso cod, Vaccherin and Choc Nut Bar desserts. Very exxy and lack of atmosphere but good service.

    Try the bone marrow! Also if you want to splurge (since you're already there), try the fatty tuna at market price. One of the best.

    Toro tartare is now their sort of signature appetizer. Worths trying for sure! Interior designed by Tadao Ando, Japanese legendary architect.

    Make sure you ask for a private table. Reservation for 4 landed us at a communal table. Great to get to know the people next to you. Not so great for a nice family dinner.

    The black cod tastes really great! Actually I'm not fan of cod or any other kind of fish, but I do like this! Melt in your mouth:)

    Iron Chef Morimoto's flagship restaurant. Beautiful interior space. Fresh ingredients. Make reservations in advances as it gets real busy. Chirashi and toro tartare were fantastic.

    Don't forget the cheesecake soufflé. There's plenty of room in your belly, because its perfectly light and deliciously right.

    For a thoroughly unique Japanese experience (on an expense account), check this place out. If you like to be "wow-ed" by food, order the toro tartare - perfect appetizer for the art director in you.

    Everything is consistently amazing. Starters: spicy king crab legs, rock shrimp tempura, kakuni, toro tartare. Mains: black cod, duck, Wagyu filet (if you feel like balling out).

    Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto opened this multi-level haven for Japanese food that serves “Kentucky Fried” blowfish and cocktails in an underground lounge. It even has a sake expert on hand.

    The Kakuni dinner appetizer amazing: comfort food flavors and textures, dished in perfect proportions in an aesthetically pleasing way. The tuna pizza is a must.

    Sea bass is superb, soft, and cooked perfectly. Has a good serving for the price. Definitely have the honey sake, it is presented accordingly well. Sweet sake is a good have as well!

    Surprisingly, this is a great place to go just for cocktails, but if you're feeling adventurous for new food, try the kentucky fried blowfish.
