Better Than Blue Ribbon. 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.
Phenomenally fresh fish!!!!. 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!
THE best restaurant meal/experience ever. The only complaint, and it's not really a complaint, is that It ruined me for sushi for months - others just cannot compare.
fun and delicious. 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.
Love this place!.
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
crazy rolls that don't make sense. I appreciate the fresh high quality fish that Nagomi serves.
i love unagi. 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.
Great sushi spot!. 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.
I have been coming this place since it opened up. The fish is always fresh, the waitresses are friendly.
They have a great kitchen menu and everything is yummy.
The prices, comparing to other sushi joints around this area and considering what you are getting, are quite good also.
Whether I go for lunch or dinner, I have never been disappointed.
chose this place out of the restaurant list and it turned out to be a pretty nice place.
The ambience is pretty average, but the service and the FOOD (most importantly) are great.
Good quality food and affordable prices. A must for the service and a must for sushi.
Try the pepper tuna and miso black cod. Some reviewers recommended ikura(salmon roe), i really agree 100%.
Sushi is fresh. Food is tasty. Friendly service. Love the music played.
Nagonasty- How on Earth did this place come close to a 10?.
Ok, I may be crazy, but this place was no where near a 10.
So just to begin, had made a walk in reservation at Blue Ribbon (good reliable standby) but did not want to wait the 2 hours, and this is about 10 p.m. So walking back toward home came across Nagomi and thought lets give it a try. Never noticed it before, but felt in the mood for sushi. The service was good, which helps but the food is what counts.
And food being the primary reason for going to a restaurant, that is what I am grading on. So what was so wrong with NagoNasty. Aside from the packet Miso soup, if it wasn't then it sure seemed like it, the main thought of the night was sushi. Sushi/Sashimi does not have many componets thus those that are used should be the best possible. Well I have to say that the over cooled, almost icy, fish did not meet the cut. It was tasteless, the tuna has an almost grainy consitancy and the salmon and unagi were similar in tastelessness. Just hunks of cool jelly, nothing there, but cool tasteless blobs. I had the Chirashi deluxe which in theory should be the "chef's best selection" If this was his thought of the best, I hate to think of what others ended up with. as for the other fundemental part of the dish, rice, this was disgusting. It was warm but dry and crispy. It was as if i had left rice from a chinese takeaway open on my counter overnight and heated up the next day and tried to make it into sushi. I should add that my dining companion had sushi and one of the special rolls. Neverthless back to the rice, I have had better rice of airplanes, actually I have had better rice after i left it out on my counter overnight. sushi rice is special and this was special but in a wholy different way. All three of the dishes had the same grainy old rice and tasteless hunks of supermarket fish. Thank god Blue Ribbon called to say that we could have a table in ten minutes, paid in a flash, didn't even bother finishing and went about to a decent dinner. Never again NagoNasty.
