byob woohoo – I need my sushi fix about once or twice a week so i went to this restaurant after reading some good reviews. I must say that this place is extremely overrated. The sushi is average...we ordered a few different special rolls and they all tasted the same. Place lacks any ambiance and is a bit run down (and not in the cool trendy way). Service was extremely slow. We got our rolls 45 minutes after out appetizers. There are far better sushi joints than this one so keep looking...
fantastic – best sushi in the city super fast and very friendly service! ambiance is great, prices are great to. You cant beat this place.
Favorite Sushi Place in LES! – I LOVE this place! I am completely addicted to their salmon tartare and Volcano Roll! It's a tiny place that gets pretty loud, but the food is worth it! I almost wish the owners would consider expanding their space. Definitely remember to make reservations and bring a bottle of wine/ sake!
Great Sushi, but kinda small – My girlfriend and I went there on a Friday night. The sushi was fantastic; very creative rolls and all the fish was fresh and tasty. The service was good enough; a little slow, but we were in no rush to leave anyway. The only drawback being it is a little small and you're sort of sitting on top of the tables next to you. But all in all, a nice experience.
Great time – My friends and I went for my Birthday and had a blast. We brought our own alcohol and ordered some deelish sushi. The only bad part is that it's a very small place so you have to make reservations and be on time. But it's really worth it!
I ordered delivery...Not that good – I found this place on City Search so me and friends ordered delivery. The rolls were small, overpriced. and nothing special. Prices were higher than the menu online Food is ok but basically wasn't impressed.
SO LOUD!!!! AVERAGE FOOD – I had heard a lot of hype about Cube 63, so I was excited to eat there. However, I found the experience lacking overall. It was SO LOUD that I was screaming and could hardly hear my friend across the table. It was disgustingly annoying. Next, being that it is BYOB, we brought our own bottle of white wine. However, they would not offer an ice bucket, and our wine was warm by the end of dinner. Thus, if you are bringing your own alcohol, bring something that doesn't need to be served cold. Next, the waitress was EXTREMELY unfriendly and did not smile once. Even she seemed annoyed at the noise of the place and got testy that she could not hear us. We ordered the omakase, and I found the food "eh". The cooked food is below average. The raw food was average, but nothing mind blowing. I would rate this place average at best for food and horrible for ambience/service. It definitely does not live up to the hype.
Best sushi rolls in NY! – I am not a huge fan of Sushi, but when I tried the rolls at Cube 63 for the first time, I was hooked! The sushi rolls are the best I have EVER had! The volcano roll gives me chills every time I eat it. It is the perfect combination of food. The spicy tuna is also amazing, along with most of their rolls. I wouldn't try the CA roll...a little boring. It is a great place for big parties because it is BYOB. It does get loud on the weekends or late weekdays. Make reservations unless you go very early! If you are looking for good food but a quiet place, try the one in Brooklyn.
Great specialty rolls – Cube 63 offers great specialty rolls. But be warned, they're small rolls (and for $10 a roll, I'd expect more), and the portions for sashimi are half the size of what you'd normally get elsewhere. I would come back here, but after the winter (wouldn't want to haul my bulky puffer coat in here). Bring as less "baggage" as possible, as the space is tiny! Fortunately, they take reservations.
Best Damn Sushi, PERIOD! – I have been to Cube 63 twice now and when I'm not there I'm thinking about going there. The rolls are SUPERB and INNOVATIVE (those who say otherwise must be eating somewhere else). From the Pink Lady to my absolute favorite, the Volcano roll, this place is bound to please and keep you coming back for more. Even the standard stuff like the Spider, Dragon, and Rainbow rolls are top notch. Another must is the Melon Shrimp appetizer.... do not pass it up. And to top it all off... IT'S BYOB and there is a deli across the street that sells cold beer (even Sapporo). On the downside, the place is tiny... probably NOT the best place for a birthday party of 10. Reservations are a must in my opinion. Also, don't be offended if you try to push back the reservation on the night of your visit and then get some static from the hostess (especially if you have a large group of people)... the place is tiny and constantly busy! Bottom line: Best Damn Sushi this side of the Pacific! I love this place and I'll be there tonight!
