Can’t complain and the service and the ambiance of the restaurant.
fish are extremely fresh, however the rice are way to lose, the snow crab fall apart when I picked it. The “fresh wasabi” aren’t so fresh, it was pre-grind.
I don’t understand how sushi Onodera got its 2 Michelin stars, it’s just rookie mistakes.

excellent. I enjoyed the sushi and it was treat to watch his preparation . My neighbor in the set to my right was a fun woman of Japanese decent who takes train from Wall Street - often. Fish is very fresh. Rice could have warmer.

Food is decent but pricy. Would recommend to a friend but with one suggestion -- eat a burger before you go so you don't feel hungry during the waiting time and then you can enjoy the sushi rather than eating it like a 10$ sushi.

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 best Japanese restaurant in NYC hands down. Better than Sushi Yasuda and Masa. The only downsides are that you will spend over $1k for dinner for two with Sake and half that for lunch, and if you go back, there is not much variety - it will be the same as you had before. I didn’t mind since I loved it but I can see it get a bit boring after a few visits.

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.

Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.
