For the best experience, speak the word omakase. Whether you’re doing the full monty or just sushi or sashimi, put yourself in the meticulous chef’s hands. - Inspector
NY. Elegant and fresh downtown sushi spot. Our must-haves Steamed Lobster With Uni Mousse and the sushi omakase.
Two Michelin stars.
This discreetly hidden and modern Japanese restaurant is quite expensive but you’ll be rewarded with culinary masterpieces…Omakase is the way to go.
Don't come here if you have somewhere to be within 3 hours of your reservation time.
I like turtles
two Michelin stars: dishes like chopped kampachi amber jack with wasabi tobiko, pine nuts, & soy foam. Pitch-perfect chawanmushi and bonkers plate of uni tempura.
Get the lobster and mango appetizer, the tuna tartare, and the sushi nigiri...best sushi I've had outside of Japan
Try the Uni Tempura
My new favorite Japanese place. West Village, innovative, uber fresh dishes, nigiri, rolls, sashimi..WOW. Spectacular. Heaven re-defined....
Some of the most beautiful (and delicious) Japanese food you'll ever eat.
The omakase is great. If you like uni, then this is the place for you! You'll leave super full and satisfied with everything.
Lobster sashimi is a great dish that's off the omakase.
Wow! Unmarked entrance. Modern decor. Uber creative yet incredible flavors. Rather expensive and very small but perfectly designed portions. The most unique and delicious Japanese resto. 5 ★s!
Get a seat at the bar, and order one of the omakase options and/or any/everything with "uni" in the name (even if you usually hate uni!)
Meticulously put together edibleness. Tiny and pungent flavors provide a savory light meal. In other words awesome food.
This place from decorations to services feel very authentic. Typical Tokyo style. While the food is fresh and tasty, it is not traditional Japanese cuisine. It has a modern touch.
impeccable sushi. love all the apps..miso soup w/ lobster...scallop sushi plus anything fresh that day. top 5 sushi spot in city (maybe even top 3)
Try the Steamed Lobster With Uni Mousse - Looked like a flower and tasted very good
Try the Wild Snapper Carpoccio - A little bit sour nice presentation!
Try the Pink Wild Trout Carpaccio - :) good combination
2 star Michelin rated!
Uni, is heavenly here!
uni omakase chutoro
I didn't enjoy my experience and definitely don't think it's with its Michelin stars... Service is spotty and food was underwhelming.
AMAZING SASHIMI and sushi plates. Fresh, soft made to order sushi. Seriously heaven.
Reservations are a must!
Authentic variety of fish - try the sashimi
One of the best omakases in the city
Try the lobster with uni ( delicious) and the fluke. If you are really hungry try the tasting menu (omikaze)
All things uni
Must go if you are uni lover. However, a bit expensive for the small portions.
Omakase. Especially if you're an uni fan.
Seared salmon cured with black truffle salt, toro tar tare (!) the uni cocktail and the special spicy tuna tar tare roll were standouts.
If you walked by without knowing, you would miss the place. Once you are inside, you are greeted by very serene atmosphere and beautifully presented food. Make sure to try something sea urchin.
Food is great but the service is very slow and not as polished as you'd expect from this kind of place
The ambience is very lackluster. Could use some music or any background noise
Uni is amazing !!
get the egg custard, uni ika sugomori zukuri, botan ebi carpaccio w/ uni, steamed lobster and uni mousse & geoduck salad
My favs was the chopped kampachi with wasabi tobiko and soy foam on the side, and citrus salmon app. This is a sit down, sip ur hakkaisan, indulge urself dinner, not a grab and go sushi joint.
uni and yuba
Expect precise preparations of raw fish, like rich bigeye tuna with avocado coulis, uni with wasabi, and ebi tartare. – Green Guide Editor
Wow! Super slow service.
Run by the "Brangelina" of sushi, Soto is the most extravagant mom-and-pop sushi shop in NYC.
...and the worst over priced sushi restaurant in the city
