I used to like Haru but find their attitude and prices to be a real turnoff. Not friendly or helpful on the phone, pricing just keep going up and quality and value do not follow. Lots of better options for good sushi with much friendlier service!

Went here on a warm Saturday night and sat outside. Haru gets a bad rap but for the price it does the job. We started with edamame and split a couple of rolls. The presentation on the grouping of rolls was nice. The tempura flakes were hidden on the crunchy spicy tuna roll. Nothing seemed overly exciting from a food or scene standpoint. The location in Union Square is definitely more fun. The The Sake Bar across the street has a better scene. It just seems like they don't try very hard here. For good sushi, I hit up Atlantic Grill around the corner.

Pros: Outdoor seating

Cons: food just ok

I love the kiss of fire roll but they don't know how to serve eel properly. I told them over and over that I wanted it hot and they insisted on sending it out luke warm. I ended up just telling them to throw it out. Sake list was decent. Just don't get the eel!

My goal is to eat at every sushi place in the city. I've gone to about 25 places thus far. This isn't the wost place i've been too, but it's pretty bad. Way overpriced and just not fresh tasting. I just tossed the rest in the garbage. This is a big deal, I love sushi and have never thrown it out, in fact one time at a nice restaurant a couple finished their meal and left two pieces of a special roll and before the waitress could take it away, I snatched it off their plate. That's how much I love sushi. This place sucked.

I went to Haru with my husband on xmas day and had the worse sushi. It was not fresh and the rows were as hard as mah-jong. We were very disapointed and didn't think it was worth $80. Go somewhere else if you want real sushi.

Pros: Ambience

The food:\r
\r
It was ok. not badly prepared or anything. traditional? maybe. but honestly, it is NOT by any stretch of the imagination, high end cooking.\r
\r
its just quaint and nice. but not worth a $85 price fixed. \r
\r
that kind of money can buy you much better high end food elsewhere.

I love this place. Went for the first time and our server was cool as beans but confused an order, sending out a tartar instead of a ceviche. It looked good so we decided to keep it anyway, but she realized her mistake, came over to apologize and take the dish away. We insisted it that we wanted it to keep it and would pay for it but she comped it from our bill and sent us a round of sake on top of everything. You can't take great customer service for granted these days! The food was freaking fantastic too. We're definitely going back soon.

Cons: Nada

not authentic sushi or the highest quality fish (yes, I think I'm qualified to state that)\r
\r
good sushi rolls and appetizers, but we avoid the raw fish at this place... trust me on this\r
\r
the rock shrimp & avocado roll is recommended. The udon noodles are really good.

Been going to Haru ever since it opened and it's still my favorite Japanese place on the UES. Crowds have calmed down a little, which is GREAT for the locals who don't want to deal with the crappy, trendy places popping up everywhere. Leave this place to those of us who want great food without getting ripped off!

The sushi is OK but not worth the wait, seating arrangements and the pace of service. There are at least 3-4 better sushi places in the neighborhood.

When I visited my friend who lives in the Upper Eastside, she recommended that we go to this restaurant. At first I was slightly skeptical because it was a sushi restaurant in the middle of NYC. Boy was I wrong! The food was great and the service was even better. The best part of the experience was knowing that the manager (a bubbly, friendly young woman with a great smile) truly cared about how we were doing. I would definently recommend this restaurant.

One of the more accessable sushi places in NY, Haru has consistently good quality sushi, great waitstaff (you never need to ask for water or for your waitress/waiter) in a fun young enviornment. The manager is very helpful and attentive and she makes sure that everything is fine with each table.

Pros: Reasonably Priced, Good Sushi, Good Staff

.

Yes, the pieces are large (too large and not expertly sliced, in my opinion), but also pricey. The Prices and long waits are just not acceptible - especially when there are many better places to go. Haru was great when it first opened - but not now.

My two friends and I ate at the sushi bar on Saturday night and notices that on several occasions one of the chefs would be eating with his bare hands as he worked and then touching the food to be served to customers. Overall, it made for a pretty gross dining experience.

Always a wait and only so, so food and service.
Fun to dine outside, but not fabulous choices for food. Received the wrong dish -- I'm a vegeatarian and my dish came with chicken.

The worst excuse for Japanese food I've ever encountered. The soup for the udon was soy sauce and water. The sushi was awful! The rice was poor quality and was cooked so badly it was hard. Furthermore, the rice had no seasoning, so the sushi was bland and disgusting. The fish was adequate, but inexpertly sliced. It is obvious that no one in the restaurant has any idea about or experience with Japanese cuisine.

Don't be fooled by crowds of people. The service is awful. This place is not worth the prices. Also, don't plan on asking for your favorite roll, if it's not on the menu, you can't have it.
