haru is going downhill rapidly – I used to like Haru but find their attitude and prices to be a real turnoff. Not friendly or helpful on the phone, pricing just keep going up and quality and value do not follow. Lots of better options for good sushi with much friendlier service!
great sushi but a bit pricey – great sushi.. I love the shrimp tempora roll. I would recomend this place .. I dont think there is a lunch special which is what I would like to see here.
great sushi! – sushi is delicious. service was good. nice to be able to sit outdoors on nice spring nite in citi. good food, and and would recommend.
Just ok – Went here on a warm Saturday night and sat outside. Haru gets a bad rap but for the price it does the job. We started with edamame and split a couple of rolls. The presentation on the grouping of rolls was nice. The tempura flakes were hidden on the crunchy spicy tuna roll. Nothing seemed overly exciting from a food or scene standpoint. The location in Union Square is definitely more fun. The The Sake Bar across the street has a better scene. It just seems like they don't try very hard here. For good sushi, I hit up Atlantic Grill around the corner.
The Kiss of Fire roll is great! – I love the kiss of fire roll but they don't know how to serve eel properly. I told them over and over that I wanted it hot and they insisted on sending it out luke warm. I ended up just telling them to throw it out. Sake list was decent. Just don't get the eel!
Disappointment to fish around the world. – My goal is to eat at every sushi place in the city. I've gone to about 25 places thus far. This isn't the wost place i've been too, but it's pretty bad. Way overpriced and just not fresh tasting. I just tossed the rest in the garbage. This is a big deal, I love sushi and have never thrown it out, in fact one time at a nice restaurant a couple finished their meal and left two pieces of a special roll and before the waitress could take it away, I snatched it off their plate. That's how much I love sushi. This place sucked.
Worst sushi ever – I went to Haru with my husband on xmas day and had the worse sushi. It was not fresh and the rows were as hard as mah-jong. We were very disapointed and didn't think it was worth $80. Go somewhere else if you want real sushi.
averege.... – The food:
It was ok. not badly prepared or anything. traditional? maybe. but honestly, it is NOT by any stretch of the imagination, high end cooking.
its just quaint and nice. but not worth a $85 price fixed.
that kind of money can buy you much better high end food elsewhere.
Love it – I love this place. Went for the first time and our server was cool as beans but confused an order, sending out a tartar instead of a ceviche. It looked good so we decided to keep it anyway, but she realized her mistake, came over to apologize and take the dish away. We insisted it that we wanted it to keep it and would pay for it but she comped it from our bill and sent us a round of sake on top of everything. You can't take great customer service for granted these days! The food was freaking fantastic too. We're definitely going back soon.
pretty good sushi rolls, white folks love it – not authentic sushi or the highest quality fish (yes, I think I'm qualified to state that)
good sushi rolls and appetizers, but we avoid the raw fish at this place... trust me on this
the rock shrimp & avocado roll is recommended. The udon noodles are really good.
