We went on a Saturday night with a group of friends after a Broadway show. We were excited about the location being walking distance from the show and were looking forward to going after reading all the positive reviews.

Unfortunately we were disappointed. The place smelled like an aquarium. We ordered 2 types of salads to share. The seaweed salad smelled like fish and not fresh. The lobster salad looked runny, not very appetizing. Our sushi arrived and we were still not offered any individual plates. We shared the salads over our napkins. We figured plates would be provided once the sushi came, but we ended up asking for them, since we still weren't given any.

We were also looking forward to the live DJ but were disappointed again. The DJ was there but she seemed uninterested in being there or livening up the place. Rather she was texting between songs.

The sushi overall was just ok. We were turned off by all of the rest.

The prices were very reasonable, but given all of the above I won't be going back. Sushi Samba/Park is our favorite. I'd rather pay a little more and enjoy myself.

5 stars!! All I have to stay is they know how to have a great time, I always have a blast when coming here with anyone. Since I am freshly out of school, it's my time to party.

I just moved to the midtown area and on my first night we went out for dinner as my entire apartment was packed in boxes... we ate at Bamboo, the sushi here was fresh, delicious, and inventive.

The customers were really nice- neighborhood folks- all locals- super chill. Thanks to the next table who let us check out their sushi before we ordered.

Very happy good start!

Bamboo 52 is my favorite hell's kitchen sushi/lounge bar. I have been a regular for four years now and it is very comfortable especially on gorgeous days when I can sit outside on the patio.

My favorites: The lobster salad,scrumptious and the Bamboo 52 roll as well as the mango salmon rolls on the lunch special. The best time to go is at lunch because the place is quiet and the food is scrumptious.

I love the fruity drinks and the wonderful wine selection but the sushi is my favorite I love Bamboo 52. It feels like I am sitting in my living room.

The Sushi is great! I've gone to Bamboo 52 a bunch of times and it never dissapoints me. The waiters always suggest something different which turns out to be great! Let me not forget to mention how great their drinks are!! Look out for their Volcano/Hurricane (I forget the exact name)but let me tell you, this drink is strong and very tasty, and the glass it comes in is also very nice!

It was my boyfriend's birthday and I really wanted to take him to a great sushi spot. I did my research and fell upon Bamboo 52. I decided to take a chance since majority of the reviews were great and the place looked real nice from the pictures I saw online. Taking the chance to go there was the best decision I ever made. Our waitress was the best ever! She took real good care of us and brought over a desert with candles before I could even ask her. The food and drinks were amazing and the setting was very intimate. We're definitely going back, especially because we loved that waitress so much!

Came here with friends after work on a Friday for drinks, and wound up staying all night! Happy hour went till 9 o'clock, so we decided to stay and have dinner. The sushi was great, some really creative rolls I'd never seen before - try the "sushi sandwich". Music and atmosphere was really fun - I want to go back on a nice day so we can sit outside in the garden.

I tried to get a table with my wife and son and they wouldn't give us a decent table despite the fact that they had plenty of open tables. I had actually been there before and liked it but now I will never go there again.

Pros: Sushi, Drinks, Service, Look and Feel

Cons: r u kidding me?? this place is great

You don't expect a sushi place to have great tropical drinks...but they do!! The mojitos taste just like the ones I had in Puerto Rico...and they have this volcano drink with flaming 151 rum, which is perfect for large groups. It is great for large groups, and intimate couples.

Bamboo is such a wonderful place that stands out in the sea of Hells Kitchen bars and restaurants. Of all the places my friends and i go we always end up there.
Their staff is consistently fun and friendly and the patrons are the most diverse in the city. It is refreshing to know there is a place to go where you can be yourself no matter who you are and make great friends with people you wouldn't find in a sea of people at cliquey bar.
The happy hour is amazing and they have everything from beer to sake. The food is cultured and there are different specials on sushi rolls daily. even if you aren't a fan of sushi i bet they have something on the menu to change your mind.
They have a DJ spinning almost every night which just makes the already fantastic atmosphere even better. Writing this review just made me decide to call my friends and see if they want to go tonight (sounds corny but i'm totally serious). Love it there and hope to meet new people soon.

I LOVE theBamboo 52 . It's a very refreshing and cool concept...kind of a sushi bar, but not. The fresh raw bar is amazing, their entrees are awesome as well. The cocktails are really creative and wonderful and the service is solid.
I would recommend to anyone. I will be back there again and again.

I have been a regular at Bamboo for about a year now and on Wednesday I found out that my favorite DJ is no longer spinning there.....what a disappointment! He had great music and was always able to "read" the crowd. I hope he left because he wanted to (the bartender wouldn't say) if not.....poor decision management!

My husband and i went there on a Tuesday night after contemplating for what seemed like forever about where we would eat. (So many choices in the city)...

He recommended this place as he ate there before some years back.. I was very excited as the place had a nice "funky" feel to it complete with a back lounge and a backyard.. (which I love).

The only thing that spoiled our experience was that the service was horrid due to the time it took to GET service... My advice is to get more help. It seemed as though there was only waitress serving the entire place.... also the drinks were watered down with no taste.

Highly recommed the "sandwich" roll with American cheese... YUMMY.

I have never enjoyed a sushi lounge more. Had a great time with some friends, ate fresh awesome sushi, and drank volcanos which came out on fire! It was so fun, we had a blast and it looked like the whole place was too.

I have been to Bamboo 52 several times and it's always a fun place to gather. After several weekday visits after work I took some out of town guests there a couple of Saturday's in a row. Much to my delight it was great as usual-two of their regular bartenders were there, one was our waiter: and two of their House DJs were also spinning. I've met both the DJs before and have to say both are really great. DJ Justin was playing some nice lounge music and DJ Giuseppe was playing a variety of classic jazz, old R & B and up tempo pop. Hang onto these guys they're friendly and talented. Sushi is good and the drinks are strong, I go for that but it's nice to have a familiar face to give your time and money to.

I have been to Bamboo 52 a few times after work and I always have a great time. They have 1/2 priced drinks and the bartenders are really friendly (Nicole was our bartender last time....she makes a great drink!) The sushi is good and not over priced....and they have a really nice garden that is now open for summer. The DJ is always good and plays a nice varity of music. Highly Recommended !

In midtown where so many places become overrun with tourists Bamboo 52 has become a great place for people from our office to meet for a few drinks after work. The sushi platters are delicious and the tables outside aren't packed in there like sardine cans. We were recently there with about 20 people and our waitress was attentive and really on top of things. The DJ played some great music but was at a reasonable sound level so you could still chat without yelling.

Creative and fun drinks! The coconut sakitio was amazing/ Baby octopus salad was ok not steller. Good place to go on Sundays when it's hot out and cool down with friends.

The music is a bit loud, but adds to the atmosphere. My friends and I split one of the sushi/sashimi combo plates -- it was the perfect amount for the four of us to pick at. Drinks were good, service was helpful, and everyone had a jolly good time.

I took some visiting friends here to grab drinks before heading out to see a show. It's pretty close to the theater district, so it's a good place to bring out-of-towners to for a taste of the "hip NYC" feel.

Any happy hour that lasts until 9 is ok in my book. I ordered the geisha mojito, and it was good. So good that I ordered 3 more. Warning: half-priced mojitos may be hazardous to your health.

To offset the alcohol, I got the B-52 sushi/sashimi platter. Deliciousness in my body. The pieces were fresh and my friends were very impressed.

I have a Japanese friend of mine recommended Bamboo 52 to me, since mostly no one else other than Japanese people can evaluate the quality of Sushi places, as Sushi is part of their daily food, I decided to give it a try, so I took my girlfriend who I was about to propose to and was hoping to find a cozy nice place to have some Sushi since she is Japanese, and I was so lucky with Bamboo 52 the Sushi was great very tasty, the service was fantastic, the drinks is unbeatable in quality and price, the staff was very friendly, we met the owner there who opened a bottle of Champaign for us, as he knew about my proposal to my girlfriend, and invited us for dinner at his other restaurant Philip Marie, defiantly without question go enjoy the Sushi and the drinks at Bamboo 52.

Got turned onto this place through another cool spot in the neighborhood (Posh). Interesting concept in that it is a bar and lounge that serves sushi. Beats the heck out of usual bar fare.They've got a DJ playing cool music without being overbearing. Great atmosphere! Had a lot of fun there with a few friends, experimenting with a bunch of interesting cocktails and sushi rolls. Try the sushi sandwich... The staff was cool and helpful too which makes nice and not necessarily common.

I love this place. Party city! It is always great fun when I go there. I am also a Sushi lover and this place serves the best Sushi and Sashimi in towm. Great happy hour prices. Yes the staff might cruise you so what. ? That means that they are paying attention to you, you should take that as a compliment. Every guy in any bar that likes you wants to slip you his phone number and if you dont like it, through it away. I dont think this takes anything away from the place. I would be flattered. I will definetly go there very often.

I have gone to Bamboo 52 many times since it opened?..great drinks, friendly staff, good music, and the sushi is always very fresh. I was at Bamboo 52 this past weekend with a bunch of my co-workers relaxing and enjoying some drinks when someone (who I later found out was the boss) began screaming at the staff! Right in the middle of the restaurant! Needless to say it made my friends and I uncomfortable so we moved to the other end of the bar?that was a little awkward. But apart from that it was a great night?..thanks!

I relyed on citysearch on this one. I ve seen the good reviews so I decided to go for it. I ate at the sushi bar with my girl. This is the worst sushi I have ever had. I had the Chief selection... which happens to be a classic combination of sushis (salmon, tuna, shrimp, etc.) . Fish is tasteless that s why they put that horrible barbecue sauce on it. I probably made a big mistake thinking that this was a sushi place... In my opinion, you have to think of this place as a bar... so nice people, nice drinks, and for the sushis, the same quality as the ones served in a club. Good bar. But definitely not a restaurant.

This place has got to have the BEST happy hour EVER!! 1/2 price drinks everyday until 9pm. AND they're not cheap with their liquor! Great for after work... great crowd, great waiter (Martin). If it wasn't so out of my way, I think i'd be a regular!

Bamboo keeps it simple. good people, good atmosphere, fun, good food, great service. Nothing fancy, just everything you want whether you're there for drinks to wind down or for dinner. I would be a regular if I lived closer.

great after work hangout spot. the lounge is very spacious and accomodating and the bamboo garden adds a nice touch if you want the fresh air and want to puff away. went there with my company after work for drinks and food. we were immediately seated in the lounge by our lovely hostess Analia. waiter came immediately. good looking guy, Matthew. he introduced himself and made his presence known by immediately taking our drink orders and suggesting different cocktails. although our group was big but he handled it with class. drinks came right away and made sure everyone had a drink and was enjoying themselves. he then suggested if we wanted to snack on some appertizers. I then proceeded to order endames and food for the group. the endames were hot and the sushi platters were very tasty and good. good variety of fish. menu is very simple and not complicated. good job Chef!!! Matthew coming back to check up on us as we proceeded to order more drinks. best happy hour in town. no where else beats this place. service was on the ball and food was excellent for the type of setting. forgot the music was nice. kept the mood flowing. when I got the bill, I didn't mind adding a little extra to the tip. would recommend this to anybody wanting to bring there company for after work drinks and food. good job guys. continue success.

I then proceeded to order endames and food for the group. the endames were hot and the sushi platters were very tasty and good. good variety of fish. menu is very simple and not complicated. good job Chef!!! Matthew coming back to check up on us as we proceeded to order more drinks. best happy hour in town. no where else beats this place. service was on the ball and food was excellent for the type of setting. forgot the music was nice. kept the mood flowing. when I got the bill, I didn't mind adding a little extra to the tip. would recommend this to anybody wanting to bring there company for after work drinks and food. good job guys. continue success.

Pros: great happy hour, service on the ball, good looking staff

Cons: none

I found this place by surprise and my first impression was absolutely great.
I was greated by a beautill host who assisted me to get a nice comfortable table that I liked. Although they where very busy the waiter gave me promp service with a smile, treated me like if me and my company where the only customers in the room. I received everything I wanted, including service with a great smile an no attitude. They litteraly go "out of the way" to make sure you leave happy. I had sashimi, my favorite, and was surprised with the top of the line quality! The drinks where not to shabby either. The bill, very reasonable! I also checked out the wonderfull outside garden. You can not see it from the front but is an oasis for peacefull enjoyment of drinks and food. You must check it out. Oh BTW I met "New York" at Bamboo52 and she is a regular. So you know this is the happening place to be !!!
To top it off, on the way out the host was exceptionally nice and asked me if we had a great time and of course we told her that the whole party was enchanted with the experience and that we would be back VERY soon!!

This place has really gone down hill. Went for dinner/drinks on a Thursday evening. The place was packed I assume because they do have great drink specials. Weird crowd of people drinking at the bar. First, they ran out of glasses and we didn't get our drinks until the end of our meal even though we asked about them repeatedly. The waiter was more concerned picking up the male clientele than he was with serving us. He totally avoided us the entire time and we had to ask for our bill 3 times before he finally brought it over. He never even apologized for the horrible service. The food is ok. There is better sushi to be had...the rolls are very americanized. Go for the drinks if you can handle the de classe crowd that's hanging around.

If you want to go to a great place for happy hour, Bamboo 52 is your place. The atmosphere is incredible, SUshi that is better then most place twice the price. Bring a group and enjoy the specialty drinks! A fun place with a fun crowd.

I can not fathom how anyone who has ever been to Bamboo 52, can say something negative. Bamboo 52 is a hidden jewel in Midtown West. Just under a year old, the sushi bar and lounge has made a name for itself in the area. With the open kitchen and bar, one is able to see their food and drink being prepared; with this they know that they are served immediately after. I have been at Bamboo when they have received their orders of fish, which is delivered fresh daily and can confidently say that it is the finest sushi and sashimi in the area. For 30 dollars, two people can dine on the Chef Greco?s special and be full. The wait staff is super friendly and considerate. They are constantly asking if you need anything else and should you do it is immediately brought to you. The owner, John Greco, is constantly present and available to the patrons. You know that he will not settle for anything less than an above satisfactory dining experience, as owner of Zagat Rated Philip Marie. Overall: Waitstaff=Terrific, FOOD and Drink=Terrific, Experience=Terrific!!!!!

As a Midtown regular I can't believe I've somehow waited this long to try out Bamboo 52. After several friends kept persuading me to go I finally gave it a try. Needless to say I was a little more than pleasantly surprised. The sushi and sashimi were excellent and the service was impeccable. I was seated quickly and the staff was very friendly! There was a DJ spinning the whole time and along with the eclectic crowd made for a very vibrant atmosphere. The decor on the inside was very suave giving a very lounge like feel. All this not to mention it was (and I believe always is) half-priced drinks until 9:00 pm!!! I absolutely recommend giving this place a try, you won't be disappointed!!!

Service was sub-par. Friendly, but inexperienced and seemed overwhelmed, even though it wasn't busy. Food was ok, but nothing amazing. The octopus salad had potential, but was too oily and didn't have much flavor. Prices were low-ish, but you still didn't get what you paid for. Definitely NOT worth going if you're looking for anything (above) satisfactory sushi or a streamlined dining experience.

I just read the other reviews on this site and although I can't speak for the wait staff (we sat at the bar) I had a great experience and would definitely come back. I was there on a Friday night and the Happy Hour was amazing- 1/2 price drinks until 9pm! The bartenders were very fast and friendly (the blonde bartender took care of us) and the music was great (I love the 80's!). I love sushi but my friends had never really experienced it- this was a great place to go. They have a good selection for everyone and it was amazing.
My suggestion- sit at the bar.

The wait staff was awful. They were rude and stuck up to say the least. I ordered a few drinks and all I got was attitude. The drinks were good and the half price happy hour was great. The food was not as good as most of the Japanese places in the city and I've been to nearly all of them. The DJ was like 60 years old. Needless to say the music wasn't close to good. We went for farewell drinks for one of our coworkers/friends. The waiters kept giving the guest of honor the bill!

We were so sorry! But, the bartender was GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAT!

The menu at chef John Greco's sexy sushi spot is a far cry from the sprawling books larded with fried calamari and chicken fingers that you find elsewhere in this Midtown West neighborhood. (And those foods won't be added anytime soon, as…
