      just looking for something a little quiet, dark, and romantic...moderate price, great sushi. I love NEO but too bright. :)

        I think Gari is a prettier room than that at Neo, not too bright, and I think the sushi is far better, particularly given the prices at Neo. When I've been to that Gari, it's been quiet and a bit dark. I haven't been to the Haru on the UWS, but not a huge fan of the one on the UES. Same w/ Tenzan, for what it's worth.

          I haven't been to Gari, but I've been to both Haru and Neo with my SO, and I don't think either are the best date places. I can see Neo, maybe, but I found it expensive for what it was, and I'm not really into fusion sushi.

            Gari is kind of fusion sushi, but , to my mind, if you are going to have fusion sushi, you might as well go to Gari! I do love it - just as I do Yasuda, but they are completely different experiences.

          Seconding Sushi Hana...I think it'd be good for a date. Ask to be seated along the wall, not in front by the door.

          1. Just went to HAKU on 89th and B'way the other night....very good and lots of people on dates there...although not very quiet.

            1. Citrus is pretty gross. They can't seem to get anything right. I'd do Gari or Momoya. Both nice, personal, great date places. Haru and Sushi Hana are too loud. Tenzan isn't a bad idea either.
