I love Japonica. It's good sushi, yet much more hip than the other good sushi places around. The space is lovely. It's crowded, but what do you expect?

Great food here at Japonica. It's ALWAYS crowded, but it's worth the wait as far as the sushi and other menu items are concerned. A little pricey but for the quality it is worth it. Enjoy yourself a great meal here!

Always a favorite of ours (and others based on the crowds who go here). Great neighborhood place with excellent sushi. Can have a long wait to be seated for table.

This neighborhood sushi spot is a cut above the rest in all respects, including food, decor and service. For those non-sushi eaters out there, the tempura and teriyaki are also very good. Prices are great and would highly recommend.

Japonica is quite possibly my fave sushi restaurant in the city. It can be kinda hard to narrow it down when there are soooooo many places to choose from, but they are consistently good and you can't ask for better service.

Love this place! I am the pickiest b*%ch when it comes to sushi and there are very few place that I will actually eat. I've been known to walk out of a place when my food has been served so it speaks extremely high of this place that I not only stayed??but I enjoyed it.

Fresh and delicious sushi at an affordable price and in a great location--right by Union Square. I love this location, it's a great spot to people watch if you sit by the window facing the street. Great decor and ambiance too.

I'm a poor student and can't afford to buy Japonica's expensive sushi dishes. However, every once in awhile, when I need a little pick-me-up or just want to treat myself, I get their lunch special. The waitstaff is excellent, efficient, and professional. The atmosphere is an calm oasis and it's never too crowded or noisy.

I recommend the lunch special w/salmon kama and bbq eel bowl. Both of these are TO DIE FOR.

For years this has been an NYU staple, but really the entire city should be taking advantage of their food. Delicious and affordable (remember: they cater to broke college students), you won't find better in the area for cheaper.

I am saddended to see so many unhappy reviews for this place. I love it very much and have for decades. I love the Ikura, and the Shigiyaki. I like all theirs rolls, sashimi pieces, and sushi. - and the yellowtail is always very delicious. I have had some very memorable toro over the years there too. I love the guys, when you get one of the old faces especially. I like the owners, the mom and the son, - although I haven't been there as frequently as I used to, and haven't seen the mother in my visits over the past couple of years. The prices is high, - but that applies to so much of NYC, so I don't hold it against them. It's just less affordable in this bad economic climate. As far a civility, I have always loved it, and think I always will.

Never again will I go back to Japonica... order two spicy tuna rolls and was sick in disgust. $10.50 per roll and I am not talking anything special... they charge extra if you want the roll with the rice on the outside. Are they kidding themselver. Never again. So many better options in NYC.

Took some client s there for lunch who were from out of town, great impression I made. The sushi pieces are huge, and oh so fresh. I made the mistake of eating sushi in NJ last week, and after I had lunch at Japonica, you can taste the freshness.

I just don't get why this place seems to be well regarded ? Overpriced food is the order of the day. $ 3.75 for a miso soup ? $14 for a shrimp shumai appetise ? If the food was spectacular then maybe but it is not. There are a plethora of good well priced Japanese restuarants in this city that leave this place for dead. Put simply the sashimi was not fresh, the shumai the same (told the waiter this and we were still charged for it) and the service ordinary. My advice spend half the money elsewhere and you will get a better meal. Oh and don't start me about the waiters reaching across the table to clear when they could have walked around and cleared without intrusion to the conversation. Give this place a miss....I will be.

The sushi is very good, in a nice area, the setting is very serene and low key, they give u a hot towel when u come in. Very expensive, well not the sushi but the dinner items, I believe.

Japonica used to be one of my favorite sushi places in the Union Square area. Went there last Saturday night for an early dinner with my husband before the movies and was EXTREMELY disappointed. Prices seem to have been jacked up considerably since last year and the sushi was not the freshest. A spicy tuna roll was inedible and we were afraid we would actually get sick. Presentation and quality was on par with (or worse than) supermarket sushi. No interesting specials and very confused/rushed service. It breaks my heart to give Japonica a bad review because I've had such great meals there in the past, but I really can't recommend the restaurant in good conscience. I hope they pull it together...

For the price they charge for the food they serve, I would have expected:
- FAR better preparation. The sashimi was far too large.
- FAR better service. Slow, unclear, disinterested. No info on specials or any decent engagement upon questioning.
- More rice. In fact, just give us a bowl regardless. When I order sushi, the amount of rice should be more than silver dollar size.

Overall, totally nonplussed. Service was lame, presentation was boring and confusing. The prices, relative to what you could get elsewhere vs. other Japanese restaurants, are absurd. They are far too pricey.

One saving grace is that everything was quite fresh (granted, it was a Friday) but that's something it has going for it.

Sushi was just very average - much better can be had at comparable prices elsewhere. The chicken teriyaki and the eel rice dishes were huge - the largest I have ever seen for a 'japanese' restaurant. Unfortunately, the teriyaki chicken tasted like some generic chicken stir fry that happened to be in teriyaki sauce - hey, let's add teriyaki sauce and then it will be japanese!! The eel, well, there was a lot of it and you can't really mess up eel. Neither dish came with classic japanese sides typical of these dishes. The food was uninspiring - oversized, no presentation, no 'harmony' between the sides and the main dish, none of the hallmarks of japanese food.
The fact that there were no Japanese patrons (despite being in the union sq/village location) and the staff was not japanese should have clued us in as to the authenticity of the food. If you're looking to lighten your wallet with average sushi and teriyaki-something, step right in. If you're looking for japanese food done right, look elsewhere.

seating was quick. i consider this place overprice for what it is, am not sure y they charge so much, udon should not be over $20, at most $16.99. Service was ok, needs improvement. seating very tight, not comfortable at all.

Being and east indian I love sea food, and that keeps me searching for new sea food spots, I was recommended by a friend to try this place and I did. The sushi was nice and the servings are BIG...but the quality however wasn't all that, may be it was just a bad day. This place has large portions so even if the prices are high, one can actually share an entree with one more person, so it doesnt really pinch, but the
taste could've been better.

I don't like the ambience at all. The sushi, however, is quite good. Their entrees aren't so bad either. But honestly though, every single item on their menu is overpriced. You can get the same quality food elsewhere for half the price. At least the service was good and attentive.

There are a lot of good sushi places in NYC, but something about Japonica's highest quality food, impeccable service, and warm and inviting interior that makes it a special trip even for a neighborhood haunt. Its my favorite sushi in NYC and I love their cooked food, too. The hardest part is deciding whether to get a warm entree or sushi (I usually get something of both!)

So my girlfriend came home from dinner one night with her friend and told me we had to have dinner at Japonica. So I went with one thing in mind - brown rice sushi. I was pleasantly surprised. We are avid sushi eaters and brown rice is definitely a healthier alternative to white. The fish was very fresh and the pieces were a very nice size. The owner/manager was super friendly and the waiters were very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant although it is a little pricey. Rolls are about $10. It was over $100 for two people and we only drank Diet Cokes... :(

This place might have cut it when there were no other sushi places around. It feels like 80s sushi- old! Way to overpriced for tiny, slimy rolls and completely lacking any kind of creativity. I understand there is such a thing as traditional sushi, but this is just boring and stale.

food/value: portions are large. fish is very fresh and well-cut. the menu is extensive. dishes other than sushi are varied and well-prepared. beautiful soup.
service: swift, friendly, and accomodating. they went out of their way to bring extras, including complementary treats. we once had a wonderful birthday celebration there. i hope to one day be known as a regular here.
ambience: the tatami room is pleasant and quiet--perfect for an intimate gathering. the rest of the restaurant feels cozy and friendly--not too crowded. while the outside isn't so impressive, this is more than made up for in food and atmosphere. never too empty, but you can always find a seat without too much wait.

Very generous portions - the largest pieces of sushi I've ever seen. The beef terriyaki is another favorite of mine here. Good for the money. I've eaten here quite a number of times - what I don't get is why the place is never crowded.

Love this place! The pieces of sushi are tremendous and so fresh tasting! It is worth what you pay here because again, the pieces are so big! I have never seen any place serve bigger pieces of sushi! Atmosphere is causal, nothing too zen like. There is usually a wait but they get their patrons in and out pretty quick. Last time I went here, my husband and I had a quick sushi and cold sake lunch, then went for a massage! Awesome saturday afternoon!!

This place had both a nice ambiance and good food. the service was excellent - but in all honesty I did go on a sunday night so it was less crowded. The fish was very fresh though and I thought they were making an effort to give you a meal worth the price they were charging. Unlike Nobu's small pieces for 33% more $$, Japonica is worth the cost ...

It's really hard to find good sushi, and just because you throw money at it, doesn't mean that you'll get what you paid for. Japonica is just that. I went, threw lots and lots of money on average food that I could've eaten anywhere else for way less. Plus, everything comes in small to average portions, so the next time you get a sushi craving, I don't recommend that you go here.

Japonica is a quite place to eat delicious, jumbo-sized sushi. The dinner usually costs you around $35 - $50 per person. It is pricey, but the service and the qulity of food is consistent.

In Short
With its soft lighting, intimate banquettes and low noise level, it's no wonder this casual spot is so beloved by NYU students and professionals for lunch and dinner. On the extensive Japanese menu, servers steer guests…
