Great Food – When it comes to sushi you need to be sceptical and careful. This place is pristine clean and serves very fresh cuts. The Chillean Seabass is the best I've had in quite a while. Fellas feel confident showing off here. The ambiance is quiet and classy and their sushi platters are sure to please. We'll come back again
The Worst Food!! – I live in the neighborhood and always pass by this place. My husband and I decided to try it out. The food was horrible!! We started out with the hamachi w/ balsamic dressing. The hamachi was warm and not a good combination with salad dressing. We sent this dish back . We also ordered the Lobster ravioli, which was cold and no flavor. The chicken and shrimp dumplings were very oily and tastless. I this point we lost out appetites completely. There are many other better sushi places in the neigbohood. This place is more for tourists than actual New Yorkers who know great food.
Seared Salmon was Simply Amazing! – We were in town for our annual conference when the craving for sushi hit. Hard. Yelp to the rescue! Since we were seeing God of Carnage, we wanted something within walking distance. Enter Natsumi! Solid reviews, let's set it up.
We ordered miso soup (tofu, seaweed, scallion) to start and then decided to split several rolls. As the beau is not a huge sushi fan, we kept it pretty simple: seared salmon and seared tuna sashimi, Philadelphia roll, spicy rock shrimp avocado roll and shrimp tempura roll.
The soup arrived within minutes of ordering and was delicious. The sashimi and rolls took a little longer to arrive but the presentation was gorgeous and everything tasted wonderful. The star of the plate was the seared salmon, it was so melt-in-your-mouth buttery I'm surprised it didn't just dissolve into a happy little puddle of goo on the plate. Phenomenal.
Extra star because it's in a great location for a little sushi bite before or after catching a show!
great place before the broadway show – my wife n i confiused what to have before the show...

FANTASTIC SUSHI – I have been to Natsumi several times and I?ve never been disappointed. They have excellent sushi/food, service, and atmosphere. OMG! The seafood toban yaki is to die for and the sake and drinks are all wonderful! I have taken many people here who are in New York visiting and have yet to get an unsatisfied customer. 100% recommend this restaurant!
love this place – At Natsumi my entire dining experience was superb!! The fusion style cusine was truly unique in chioce as well as delectable in taste. The sushi here tastes and is presented like none other The entire staff was extremely pleasant and seemed more than happy to help me in making a selection and make sure that everything was up to my liking. The restaurant 's mordern interior is exquisite and features a bar on one side of the building and a dinning area on another. I will most definitely dine at Natusmi again very soon and highly recommend it to others
Great food, atmosphere and company. – I have eaten here many times and even brought friends and business associates here as well. The menu has traditional sushi offerings as well as updated rolls created by the head chef. The menu also offers hot dishs which range from traditional to fusion-ish. I think the sea bass dish is the best, both in terms of taste and proper cooking of the fish (never over cooked!), that I have ever eaten in midtown. If you want sushi, I recommend the chef's sellection. It cost a few bucks more than the standard sushi plate, but it is worth it, IMHO.
The staff members are very pleasant and aim to please (as all waiters/waitresses and bartenders should be!), and provide a pleasant and fun environment to relax over some drinks. The bar has a good selection of up-scale brands and also has a good sake selection (though not really my thing). Also, it is not unheard of for the members of the cast of some of the near by plays to drop in after the last show for some drinks, and from time to time a rapper and his crew have been known to wander in too.
Editorial Review – Natsumi is a new kind of restaurant in New York City that fuses Japanese and Italian foods together.
Cozy Bar and Best Sushi – My second visit of this place, the bar area is cozy with style. It is the best place to stay after show. The sushi presentation is superb. I really enjoy it.
Best Japanese Food!!! – I have been in several Japanese restaurants and this one is really nice the athmosphere is really cool, we were there after Valentines with all of our friends, eventhough we didn't make reservations (meaning that you must make it) they figured out how to sit us down and we had an awsome time.
The service was really good well explained all that was in the menu and also I will recomend the Dumplings and the Spring Rolls they are really good.
It can also be romantic.
