the service is fine, and sushi I think is not bad. However, I did not find any stunning or outstanding point in the restaurant though it has michelin 3 stars. to be fair, it is still a good sushi restaurant only in the united states.

Order the specials. The ethereal sensations that envelope your palate are unbelieveable. Not to say that the sashimi & nigiri aren't top quality, but it's the chef's creations that make Soto stand above & apart from all other Japanese Restaurants in New York (or the rest of the planet), period.

Food excellent - classic sushi. Atmosphere a little clinical / quiet.

I did not have good luck with NY restaurants during my most recent trip back to NY. It seriously calls to question all the "good" food experiences I remember having when I lived here. I cannot believe that Soto is a 2 Michelin star rated restaurant. It's not even worthy of 1 star! For a "sushi" restaurant to have mostly fusion sushi appetizers and rolls, I cannot believe it can be rated higher than the likes of Kyoya or Sushi Yasuda that offer much more authentic Japanese dining experiences. The price of Soto is completely unwarranted. Most of the dishes are for show with what seems like fanciful ingredients and plating. But if you really know sushi, Soto is not a go to place. If you wanted to spend that kind of money for fresh and authentic sushi, I can name a handful of restaurants, ones that Michelin didn't give one star to. I'm surprised this place is worthy of 2 stars. The service is also not worthy of its 2 Michelin stars. We had to hail the waitress several times during our meal for specific requests, one of which was to get another bottle of the sake we were having. The wait staff seemed merely like runners rather than experienced and knowledgeable staff of a Japanese restaurants. I felt like I knew more about the food than they did. All in all, it was a disappointing, and really expensive, meal that left us feeling unsatisfied and cheated.

If you don't look closely, you'll walk right past Soto on 6th Avenue. Lucky for those of use who know what to look for since it isn't very large - reservations are highly recommended. Everything on the menu is delicious from the appetizers like the Uni Cocktail (my favorite!!!) all the way to the mochi ice cream dessert. Not cheap, but definitely worth it if you're looking for quality sushi. Take your time while you're there, not for people in a rush looking for a quick meal.

For someone who thinks they don't like sushi, this place will change your mind forever! And the saki.... just glides down your throat like sweet water. I highly recommend anything with uni in it.. melt in your mouth deliciousness! I can't wait til next time... I held my tongue to recommend this place til now cuz it is so small inside that reservations must be made far in advance.. but they deserve the best of ratings in my book so did not want to deny them the pleasure! Well done, Soto!
