Brooklyn Sushi place with nice atmoshere for bday dinner

I've heard great things about Taro, but does it have a nice/festive vibe? I'm in Cobble Hill and would be happy to go to Park Slope too. TIA

  1. Although the sushi is great, it doesn't really have a festive vibe. The room is small and pretty plain. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing that really provides the ambience you're looking for.

    1. While I'm a huge Taro fan, the atmosphere isn't what you're looking for.
      Last night we ate at Cube 63, the fish was excellent and ambiance was significantly more festive.

      1. You could consider Blue Ribbon Sushi in Park Slope. I think Taro is a better value for the money, but its not a very nice space. Blue Ribbon Sushi is very good, though a bit expensive for the quality - but for a special occassion it may be worth it.

        1. I think Ki Sushi on Smith Street (Dean/Pacific) is lovely--definitely a place that lends itself to a special occasion. We've always been happy with the food and service as well.

          1. what about Nouvelle, in Bay Ridge? never been but others have recommended.
