Same good food/menu as the other locations. Service is impeccable, orders come out relatively quickly. The only downside is that Times Square is busier than the other locations, so waits should be expected.

Delicious selection of meals. It is also a surprisingly large (seems like a small restaurant based on the entrance, but it is rather large and spans a bit). Service was great. Presentation of dishes was also wonderful. And, the taste of dishes was great. I...More

I've been to Ootoya twice and both times the food was excellent. The menu is not what you would find at a typical Japanese restaurant, and is considered "comfort food." The waitstaff is excellent and really get you in and out of there, so it...More

The only ingredient that was any good wax the Sashimi, all other articles were nearly tasteless. A big disappointment. Of all Japanese restaurants i have visited, this was the worst.

Ootoya is home to Japanese comfort food of very good quality at fair prices. Their set lunches and dinners are particularly good buys. Most recently my husband and I enjoyed set meals that included soup, chawanmushi, and in his case, salad and pickles. He ordered...More

Firstly I have lived in Japan and in homes with Japanese people for several years and this is one of the most authentic flavours I've found in a restaurant outside Japan. It was a bit of a wait and that's a pain. "30-35" was 50...More

Ootoya is a cute small Japanese resto. Expect to wait for lunch. Their homemade tofu is a must. They have different bowls with a variety of delicious raw fish. It is pricey yet great Japanese quality
