Ok, I may be crazy, but this place was no where near a 10. Pros: the staff Cons: the food

Better Than Blue Ribbon 4/29/2010

I used to go to Blue Ribbon Sushi all the time when in the neighborhood but haven't been back once since Nagomi opened. This place is delicious, with top quality sushi and sashimi, and there's hardly ever a wait. The kitchen has some decent entrees too, but I pretty much stick to the sushi bar where they have interesting and excellent specials all the time. Highly recommended. Pros: Excellent sushi, charming staff, no wait. more

Phenomenally fresh fish!!!! 11/16/2008

I decided to have dinner here with my lover before going to the comedy cellar and we both had a great experience. We started off with a spicy sashimi appetizer (unbelievable) and then had the tuna katsu which almost made me 0rgasm. I mean melt in your mouth yummy deliciousness. I highly recommend both dishes! We also shared the spicy double roll and the spider roll which also were to die for. The miso soup, the edamame and the pinot noir were solid picks. I will definitely be returning very soon. I love sushi and this place definitely got it right! Pros: Sweet location and phenomenally fresh fish! Cons: None! more

Perfectt... 10/11/2008

Perfection. more

fun and delicious 8/11/2008

This is a great place to have sushi and walk around a neighborhood with so much to see. The sushi was fresh and the quality of the rolls and variety on the menu was top notch. My daughter especially enjoyed the sweet potato roll as it was served warm. Great neighborhood restaurant with good prices and delicious food. more

Love this place! 2/11/2008

I love this place! Great reasonable sushi, in a cool comfortable, non-pretentious environment. The neighborhood is fun to walk around in so I recommend this place to out of town guests. It is so far my favorite sushi place in New York. So many sushi restaurants try too hard to make cr more

i love unagi 10/18/2007

I just love this place for one reason and one reason only, I am in love with their unagi. It is always fresh and the flavour just makes me orgasmm, I have to fight to keep my composure inside the restaurant. I wonder if the sauce is made there because it doesnt taste processed or packed or anything like that. Pros: Atmosphere, Unagi more

Great sushi spot! 8/15/2007

Attractive understated decor, attentive (yet unobtrusive) service, very good sushi. I would definitely go there again, if I'm in the area and in the mood for sushi. more

Always Good 5/17/2007

I have been coming this place since it opened up. The fish is always fresh, the waitresses are friendly. more

I randomly 4/13/2007

chose this place out of the restaurant list and it turned out to be a pretty nice place. Pros: location, friendly service but Cons: a bit slow service, small place more

Nagonasty- How on Earth did this place come close to a 10? 3/31/2007

Ok, I may be crazy, but this place was no where near a 10. Pros: the staff Cons: the food more

Food Unremarkable 2/6/2007

Atmosphere was great. Pros: atmosphere Cons: food more

Ikura 1/24/2007

I've been here twice and both times the fish was fresh and so tasty. If you're a fan of ikura you should definately try theirs. The sushi chef here marinates his own. It is not at all as salty as the processed type you would nornally find anywhere else. I'm putting my disclaimer in now. The last 2x I've been the ikura was good. If they decide to change their technique, I can't be blamed. Service is good and they want you to enjoy your dining experience. If you're starving! you may find their service on the slow side. Happy dining! Pros: fresh fish Cons: parking more

probably yes 12/10/2006

we went last saturday night for the dinner and absolutely loved their food. Actually, I wanted to order the Omasake but the waitress talked us out of it, so we ordered regular sushi dinner and some kitchen stuff. everything was fresh and tasty(except the mackerel sushi, I personally did not like any kind of mackerel and the rib eye steak was slightly overcooked ) Try their toro tempura roll, it was very good! We also tried 2 different deserts and they were all ok. Overall I would give this place an 8. Would I go back ? probably yes. Pros: location, toro tempura roll Cons: couldn't choose salad instead of miso soup more

Yuk 11/27/2006

Just had lunch there, to be honest it wasn't very good. The service was absent minded and we were one of two parties in the place. I had the lunch special plus a couple of extra pieces. Most of it was okay - on the cusp of not being bad except for the Toro, which was A) $7.00 and B) gross - bad smell, bad taste, bad all the way around. The Irkura was likewise - tasted like it had been around a couple of days too long. The place is relatively cheap, but you get what you pay for. Pros: Cheap lunch in Soho Cons: Taste more

Excellent place! 10/27/2006

I love 'sushi' but my biggest complaint about Japanese food in NY (in this $$ range) is that it all tastes the same. The fish in the rolls often isnt really discernible, the wine list is usually skimpy, ambience is often lacking and the menu doesnt offer enough choices. But NOT at Nagomi. This place is excellent. I had been on the lookout for a place where I could regularly get fresh, tasty Japanese food without feeling like I was getting completely ripped off. Nagomi answered my woes. Tasty food, good variety, cozy, ideal location (for me), friendly servers and decent prices. Overall, a great place! Pros: All of the above Cons: Restaurant is on the small side ... so might have to make reservations more

No-bad-eat 6/15/2006

I have to admit, Japanese isn't my favorite cuisine; but I was really surprised at how good my food was. I actually enjoyed it. I feel like the only spice associated with Japanese food is wasabi, so I usually find any other entrées to be bland. Pros: Good food, inexpensive prices Cons: One waitress more

Amazing place - absolute charm 5/6/2006

My husband and I came across this gem of a restaurant several weeks ago. First of all, the decor is very simple and inviting. I always prefer the corner spot. The service is attentive and friendly. Lunch specials are a great deal - fresh sushi for a fraction of the cost at Blue Ribbon, delicious tuna steak for $10.50, etc. I couldn't give this place a higher endorsement. Pros: Staff, Food, Attractive more

As good a dining experience as it gets 5/3/2006

Service, atmosphere, prices, food...all outstanding. A few other reviewers recommended the pepper tuna and they couldn't be more correct. The rest of the sushi/sashimi just had a fantastic fresh taste to it. I'm looking forward to going back. more

Diamond in Soho. 3/2/2006

If you are looking for a great sushi restaurant in soho area, you are looking at it. Once you are here, you cant resist yourself to comeback again. Great quality food, worm and cozy atmosphere, good price, and friendly service will definitely make you regular customer of Nagomi. Sushi lovers!!! Do not hesitate to try Omakase the chefs special. It's good stuff. more

Prince and Thompson's little secrets 2/28/2006

Very cozy restaurant where the service and the food are as good pleasant as the price ( great bargain!!). For a one on one dinner w/ a loved one or a small group gathering I highly suggest Nagomi. It's quietly become my restaurant of choice. more

  • In Short
    Brick, cherry wood and mosaic-tiled floors instead of the usual blond wood and block prints is the first sign that this sushi stop isn't like the others. Locals love that there's...
