Sure, great purist sushi. But for the price I would have expected an intimate and special environment. Yes, having a waitress show you which fish you are eating on an iPad is neat, but also a bit fast-foody to have the device shoved at you. Overall, good food but a rushed and utilitarian feel. Just not worth it unless you want to check it off your list of Michelin restaurants - this one definitely doesn’t deserve its two stars.

Sushi Ginza Onodera is an other wordly experience not sure your casual spicy tuna roll loving friend. Each fish was something special and unique that we have not experienced elsewhere. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here and were blown away by the attentive service and food. Every 4 people (2 parties of 2) had their own waitress and sushi chef. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

Staff always ask rude questions and annoying service. One day before the reservation, the staff called to confirm "do I know the price?", rather than food allergy. When my wife ordered hot green tea, the staff asked "The green tea is $5, is it ok?". The chef is nice, and the sushi quality is good. Yet, this restaurant is not my top choice due to the staff.

Very good sushi spot. But very overpriced. Been lucky enough to travel the US and the globe and have had some amazing world class sushi. This was NOT that. Like I said very good. But the food and experience did not come close to matching the price.

One of the best sushi omakase in New York City ! Excellent fish coupled with a wonderfully prepared rice. Probably the closest sushi-experience you will get without jumping on a plane to Japan.

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.

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.

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.
