Sushi Ginza Onodera - NYC
Rice was terrible, fell apart even when eaten quickly.
Hostess was extremely rude when I asked them to accommodate a third guest. Acted as if I were being unreasonable. It’s unlikely I’ll ever eat here again.
The overall experience was fantastic. The lunch menu features delicious food with remarkable service. Was greatly impressed by the service and how our chef delivered our food.
Best japanise food and most friendly chefs in NYC!
Amazing omakase experience - excellent appetizer, fresh seafood, and good variety of sashimi pieces. Service was superb and ambiance was authentic.
I have eaten at 5-7 Michelin* sushi restaurants this year in NYC, Singapore, London, and Kuala Lumpur. Each has its best attributes and some that are middle of the road.
Sushi Ginza Onodera is at or near the top of the list in terms of fish portions (large, super fresh slices on nigiri), fish freshness, and overall flavor. The uni was perfect, the toro was silky, the barracuda and hamachi were memorable. The chef was engaging and friendly, ultimately offering some items not included in the omakase itself.
I’ll definitely go again, and lunch omakase is a better deal.
We enjoyed our extraordinary dinner experience totally. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone you enjoys fine dining.
Overpriced, terrible wine list. Food great - but you can pay much less for same quality. Kinda bad service. Won’t go back
The most incredible food experience of my life! Sushi at Ginza on 5th Avenue is superb and I hope I get to experience it again one day. Thank you to the wonderful chefs and waiting on staff.
The experience was great!! Sushi was good! Ambiance and theme was appropriate for lunch.
I usually don’t write reviews, but felt compelled to write about this one. This is a complete waste of money. I have been to most Omakase counters on NYC and several in Toyko. This was one of the most expensive ones and one of the worst. The initial appetizers were consistently too sweet and the fish was definitely not of the highest quality. Also an overpriced sake menu. I do not see this established lasting in NYC.
Enjoyed great Omakase Sushi course for lunch. Worth trying.
Amazing fish quality and very kind Service. We had a great lunch menu there. Really awesome place at 5th avenue in NYC..............................Amazing fish quality and very kind Service. We had a great lunch menu there. Really awesome place at 5th avenue in NYC..............................
Perfect Japenese Fine Dinning in 5th ave NY city.
You can feel like in Japen but with NY Library view.
It is a interesting experience.
Thank the perfect sushi for the Sushi Master Kazunori Hattori and all the staff of Onodera.
It is a great birthday lunch with friend! Great service with excellent food! Definitely come back!
Amazing, best food ever. Perfect for anniversary.
Best sushi I've ever had in my life. Hefty price tag, but it felt worth it. We had a wonderful evening and would return back next time we're in NYC.
The best and only real edomae omakase course in the city. The closest to being in Tokyo without getting on a plane. Hirohito-san is number one!
Cole, our designated sushi chef was absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!! Not only was he attentive and clearly well trained. But he was a good human - he literally walked with us out the door and kept waving us goodbye until we turned the corner. You just don’t see that everyday.
Everything was perfect here! All of the food are fresh and delicious. Will definitely come again and again.
I'll just say it was quite an amazing foodie experience. Fun seeing everything made at the counter, and the chefs were friendly and fun. The food was nothing short of sensational.
Soooo good. Amazing service. Fresh fish and tasty pairings of flavors. Impeccable and zen décor.
Didn’t mind spending a lot for lunch time. So far it is the best omakase sushi place for me. Chef Hiro entertained me well and taught me a lot about the sushi he was serving. No wonder why it has 2 stars. They deserve it. Service was also excellent!
Amazing service and especially unique fish selection.
Amazing. Service is beyond imagination. Nigiri are amazing
The food remains the centre of focus, with presentation of great importance as well. Chef Saito’s 2 stars are well justified and, while expensive, the journey here is a must. The sake list is comprehensive and well done. Highly recommended!
Some sushi had strong fish odor. Desert came before the last course of the sushi.
Nothing special, decent food, service is good!
The place simply gave up after Saito SAN’s departure
This was the most amazing experience I’ve had. I felt completely pampered and attended to. Each morsel was exquisite - I closed my eyes often so I could just focus on the complexities and refinement. My favorite was their serving of Hairy Crab with caviar. The chef was phenomenal and I’m grateful and humbled by the culinary excellence. I recommend trying everything you can.
For the price, this was not a worthwhile omakase experience. The pieces of nigiri were unusually large and uncomfortable to eat. There were no special moments throughout the progression of fish and the culmination of the experience w/ the otoro felt rushed an unexceptional. The patrons seated next to us were very loud and obnoxious (playing YouTube videos on their phone and taking full-volume calls) which definitely soured the experience. It feels like for $300 you are paying for their midtown rent and not an exceptional omakase experience. I've had many other omakase experiences elsewhere in the city that were cheaper, and superior.
Best sushi of my life!!!!
Great experience, unbelievable service, super high quality food. Note that It is extremely expensive, even for NYC, but if you enjoy this kind of food and experience and are willing to pay for it this place you should be on your list.
Food was great. But they should have told us if they refill tea, there will be a charge of $6 per cup! It’s so not cool to charge us so much for tea without telling us.
An excellent place to go!
The restaurant is absolutely amazing. The food is fabulous and the service very kind. Centainly the best sushi I’ve ever had in life!
Incredible and relaxed
