Kanoyama's fixed price early dinner special is such a deal. Been there on a number of occasions and always pleased. Great design on the additional new space. \r

Food ok but not as good as it used to be, they kept the prices that's for sure!!! you still have to wait too long but now is for mediocre sushi so might as well go to some other of the 100000000000 Sushi places in the area. I miss ISO so

Was really surprised with the negative reviews, this my joint favourite sushi spot in the city, excellent black cod, super fresh sashimi and excellent specials, best I've had their was a blue fin tuna rib special one of the most unusual

I totally agree with the previous reviewer that Kanoyama should be around 20 in Zagat, not 27. We had the sushi for 2 for 44$, which were among the most ordinary pieces I've eaten in the city (uninteresting selection and so-so quality of

Pros: Daily specials, good ambience.

the title says it all. it's not terrible, but astonishing that zagat's thinks this is one of the finest restaurants in nyc. it's perfectly adequate and reasonably priced. don't go here expecting anything else.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this spot. the omakase was a great deal and very original--not your typical california roll and salmon sashimi at all! all the fish was extremely fresh, perfectly cut, and presentation was great. We left

I love sushi, and have eaten at some of the best sushi places both in NY and in Japan. In fact, after having eaten sushi at the Tsukiji market, there are very few places in NY that I find acceptable. This is one of them. The fish is of

I used to be a big fan back when this place was called Koi. Nothing should have changed with the alteration of a name, but the passage of time has eroded their common sense. I went in earlier this week and the place was more than half

Pros: decent fresh fish

Cons: service has gone downhill

True, Kanoyama has a large variety of fish. However this does not mean its a top echelon sushi joint. Ignore the superlative Zagats and Menupages ratings, Kanoyama is only moderately better than average at best. I really don't understand

Pros: Courteous staff, high quality food.

Cons: Needs some polishing , could be faster service.

This place is overated. The food was OK, but the portions are miniauture. Service was friendly but slow. Overall experience was disappointing. There are much better Japanese restaurants in the same neighborhood.

A great favourite, especially in terms of the neighbourhood. We have been coming here for a few years now. The food is unbelievable and the waitstaff is relaxed and knowledgeable, especially Marie, Abby and Nick. My personal favourite

Outstanding quality sushi for very reasonable prices. In fact, overall one of the best sushi restaurants I've been to (better than Bond St, Tomoe). I had the omakase sushi which extremely well done. The conger eel is actually prepared

Full of flavor. Unique combos. Great sake list. Nice staff, and not too, too pricey. If I wasn't fearful You can live off of the appetizer menu. Just go down the list. It got all messed up with a few name changes and whatnot, but the place

After paying $125 for our bill, we ended up having buffalo wings down the block. I think this restaurant is definitely overrated. The ambience is great but the food is just average. I can find much better sushi elsewhere in the city with

There are no negatives here. The sushi is simply the finest you are going to find in NY. OK, it might be expensive, but it is worth every penny. It is consistently superb. The sushi chefs were masterfully trained by Iso and offer items

Koi doesn't look so great from the outside, but on steeping in, you're greeted by dim lighting and warm wood. There's not a lot of space to sit (get there EARLY!!!) The waitstaff was very knowledgable about the menu, what was good, and
