Sushi By Bae
We really enjoyed this omakase! The fish was really delicious and the chef was personable. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an authentic experience.
Exquisite, skillful and passionately prepared food. The entire staff was warm and top notch professional. Give in to the mixologist’s skill - you won’t regret that! I am making plans to return!
Oona is a fantastic sushi chef that puts a great amount of work in providing unique and delicious courses. She also does a great job of interacting with those at her seatings. Her staff is on point and the ambiance is also great.
I have never eaten sushi prior to my dining experience at Sushi By Bae. To be introduced to sushi by such an elegant Chef is extraordinarily lucky. Fresh, clean, hospitable, friendly, all the elements for a perfect dinner. It was. I am glad to have had the best for my first.
One of the best omakase sushi values in the city: $110 for 15 perfectly crafted pieces served at the perfect pace. Menu changes based on the season and market availability. Oona Tempest is a wonder and a perfect host - it feels less like a restaurant and more like you're joining her in her apartment for an intimate dinner party. Just brilliant.
Fantastic chef and service from sushi master Oona!
Overpriced. If this was $50 like sushi by bou, we have no complaints (although we think sushi by bou is a lot better). The firmness of the rice was uneven, and I think some fish were left sitting on the cutting board too long. Sea urchin was not good at all...had no taste. Although, I guess the taste was not too bad as compared to other random sushi places but we had higher expectations considering the price.
The chef was wearing a watch and hair band on her wrists, and also her sleeves were not tucked up to her elbow which was all very very disturbing while watching her make our sushi. I have never seen sushi chefs having anything up to the elbow. She was also touching her cell at where she cooked. It was nice she was interacting with customers, but her hand stops when she talks, so it was a lot of waiting....
Awesome sushi rice, great fish, and excellent chef. Will come back again!
The food was so very good! Oona was lovely. I hope she stays here for a while. She’s a great addition to the nyc dining scene.
One of the best dinner experiences I have ever had in my entire life
Chef Oona is excellent! She is extremely knowledgeable and personable and made the overall experience that much better. Highly recommend! Every piece was made with extraordinary care, which made each bite that much more delicious!
Extraordinary omakase experience with expertly crafted pieces of fish, delicately seasoned on warm beds of soft rice.
Oona was great! Service was polite but clumsy. Wait staff needs to learn how to operate discretely in a sushi restaurant.
I’m not sure I’ve ever had fresher fish! Oona’s passion for her craft and educational flair take this intimate dining experience to the next level.
Favorite omakase place!!! Oona is the best!!!
Amazing time. Chef Oona is the BEST ! The food is incredible. Definitely s memorable experience. We went twice in one week ! It’s that good !
Nice casual atmosphere that differs from your traditional omakase place. The chef is very friendly and helps make it a really pleasant experience. They seem very proud to be flying their fish from Japan but unfortunately most of their flavors are masked by overly present yuzu or other sauces. Even for the pieces without particular sauce- I did not find the tastes or flavor particularly remarkable, for the price.
Amazing meal. Oona is an incredible chef and so easy to talk to. Loved the environment, small and intimate but not cramped. Will definitely be back again.
An incredible dining experience. The most incredible fresh fish and prepared in the most delicious way. What a special omakase! Every detail was so thought out, Oona created a perfect dining experience!
Very intimate setting with delicious food. Highly recommend!
Simply mind blowing!! been here twice. Drinks are great too. in-laws approved :) Will be back soon!
Chef Oona is the best
Awesome food and service as always. The amount of passion put into the service and hospitality is what make me always coming back.
Fantastic Omakase with sake flights and cocktail options
Oona Tempest is back with Sushi by Bae. Incredible intimate dining experience with her. Would come back ASAP.
She is excellent. Great omakase selections, friendly and accommodating, and great at her craft. Would rank her highly among sushi chefs.
