    Great values, BYOB, and great food and staff. Gets super busy so don’t be surprised if you have to put your name down and wait at the bar across the street awaiting Poke to give your phone a ring.

    Fun, lowkey place that would be good for a casual date or big groups. This place is BYOB with delicious rolls that are decently priced. Could get noisy & packed, so try to come early or on a weekday.

    It's BYOB & cash only! Sushi is delicious but the staff could be nicer. Very crowded but worth it.

    Good quality sushi and BYOB. I wouldn't recommend the spicy tuna rolls (too much spicy paste for my liking, but the rest was good).

    Apparently there's an $18 per person minimum, though it's not mentioned in the menu or posted anywhere around the restaurant. Double-check with them what you order as you may get something else!

    Food was delicious but service was rude/terrible/a mess. No mention anywhere of the $18 per person minimum - and we were not the only table confused by this. Got some of our order wrong & others' too.

    Overrated and overpriced. The sushi is good but portions are small, the appetizers uninspiring. Full of loud drunk white people, if that's your thing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    BYOB, but if it wasn't it would be rated lower

    Good Upper East sushi. A little overrated on Foursquare. Good basic sushi. No need to do omakase here. Just stick to the basics, which are good.

    Outsource decision making and go for the chef's selection of sushi. Compliment with a high acidity wine of your choosing BYOB.

    The food at Poke is excellent! Try the gyoza and save room for the specialty rolls - they're delicious! FYI, Poke is cash only.

    Obsessed with the spicy miso soup. I love it so much I usually order 2! And their sushi rolls are all delicious and fresh tasting. Plus it's byob so it's not an expensive dinner!

    Consistently great sushi, friendly service, and the perk of BYOB. It does get crowded and loud so try to get there on the early side.

    The sushi is always fresh! It's as though the fish has just been taken from the ocean and placed directly on your plate!

    Sushi quality was unbelievable and the owner (BJ) is the man. Order The Bomb and I promise you will not regret. A true UES gem.

    Don't be fooled by the BYOB, the sushi at this place leaves much to be desired. Portion sizes are small, non-existent flavor in their spicy maki, and to boot it's cash only!

    My favorite sushi in NYC. Everything I've tried has been perfect. One of the greatest things about this place is that is BYOB.

    If you've got cash, they'll deliver to you. Good in desperate situations but more fun to eat in - especially on Valentina's day.

    BYO you say? Grab a crisp Chardonnay (we're just down the block across 1st Ave) to go with that Himachi. Yum :)

    Amazing, get the truffle roll, dynamite, and spicy spider rolls. BYOB, put your name in and wait across the street at Ryan's Daughter, they'll even chill your wine while you wait. Poke will call you

    Inexpensive, excellent sushi + BYOB. Grab wine at Yorkshire Wine on 1st b/w 85th & 86th St, and cash at the ATM across the street at Ryan's Daughter. Cash only.

    Really, really fun place. BYOB and excellent array of custom sushi rolls. Can get crrrazy loud for a restaurant with all the hard, non-absorbent surfaces. Good start to an evening out on the UES.
