    David was a great server. Started with the Firecracker Shrimp Tempura and Vegetable Spring Roll. Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll and Samurai Sushi Rolls. All the food was fantastic. A couple of Pinot Grigio and 22 oz Kirin made for a wonderful evening. Thank you.

    Haru used to be decent but over the years the quality kept sliding. Went to this place thinking maybe they are revamping and doing something better - it's actually worse compared to the last dying days of Haru. Had a sushi and sashimi platter for 2 - poorly cut, warm, chewy, borderline smelly fish, old dried rice, wilted greens. Everything just plain blah... ordered prosecco - they brought a warm tiny bottle (my issue is with "warm"). Momoya next door is so much better

    We had a reservation for 2. They sat us wherever we wanted. We sat by a window. A favorite of many who go there. However, the AC vent was right near our table. So, the waiter motioned to another table that was not near a vent. So we took it! Yes, it was more comfortable. I joined their club where you get a”””$20 discount on food from M-Th only. So on Labor Day , Sept 5th, I used the $20 discount offer . And, there was no limitation to it—except for taxes and drinks. I got my usual - the mixed pokey bowl - salmon shrimp, tuna. As always—delicious. I asked them to make it less salty, which they did . RA is very accommodating and respectful of your wishes and complaints (re AC). I usually get the Pokey bowl because it is sooo good and only $18.70 with a choice of salad or rice and with their lovely bowl of soup . The couples on both sides of our table had huge portions of sushi and sashimi and my husband and I vowed we would try their more elaborate dishes, next time. The dishes on one table looked like a work of art. The couple where taking photos of their dishes before they dug in. Also, inside is sleek w black walls w chrome touches. Very modern. Highly recommend if in the mood for Japanese food.

    I used to go to the place when it was Haru, and loved it. Can't say I was so impressed by the food which was ok. The hot sake was very disappointing.

    Food was good but since they changed ownership it seems they have a more chain store vibe. When we asked for a California roll without cucumber the server said it is already pre made so they cannot take it out.

    Used to be Haru sushi--and has gone downhill since the rebranding. It is more expensive for food that is not as good, and less per serving. it was not necessarily bad, but compared to how it used to be, I am extremely disappointed.

    Disappointed that the window-doors were open on a very hot night. We suffered from both street noise and mosquitos. Why would they want to let all the A/C out. Waste of money and not good for people wanting to dine in for a reason. Food delicious as always.

    We had a very nice table by the window. Staff was accommodating and responsive. However, the food was good, we had sushi and sashimi and was ok. Typically we are used to unusual drizzling of sauces over the sushi rolls. The sliced sashimi was generally small but fresh. My Udon bowl of noodles and seafood was very small and way over cooked noodles. The lobster as advertised were a few super tiny lobster claws (over cooked) an no lobster “meat” at all, and 1 scallop, and 2 tiny tiny shrimp.

    The fish was good quality and the nigiri pieces were a good size, perfect for a mouthful. The maki rolls on the other hand were too large and needed to be bitten in half, causing them to deconstruct. I ordered the Spider roll and ended up picking out the crab to eat on its own as there’s no way I could have fit it into my mouth. My biggest issue was with the hand rolls. Not only was the nori wrapping not crispy, it was so soggy and chewy that I couldn’t bite through it. We ended up sending them back and they appropriately took them off the bill.

    Favorite place for Sushi in the city. We are there enough that they know us on sight. Always warm and friendly. Go for the Lobster Tacos as your appetizer - they are deliciuous. Even though they have changed names and lost a few really good rolls, the food and service are still outsanding.

    We've been coming to this location for years. Then, since COVID - it's been 2 1/2 years since we were there last. In that time, Haru Sushi rebranded as RA Sushi. We booked a table, with a little hesitation as we were not sure what to expect. When we arrived, the host (owner?) greeted us very warmly - "It's great to see you, it's been such a long time!" She had the same table we reserved each time in the past. While there were a few Sushi rolls missing from before, everything was fantastic. Tip - get the Lobster Tacos - you will not regret it. Definitely on our list of favorite places to eat in NYC.

    The sushi was disappointing. The tempura was not fresh. It seemed to have been made some time earlier so it wasn't crispy. The spicy crunchy tuna didn't really taste like much of anything. Time to find another sushi place in UWS.

    Horrible horrible, over priced, terrible ambiance. The old Haru is now owned by a corporate chain and the place is super grim. they also “mistakenly” charged us for two glasses of wine and three beers when we had one glass of wine and two beers. Not hard to get that right. They also couldn’t wait to bus us out and turn over the table. Will never return.
