Yasuda - table as good as the bar?

I'm going to Yasuda for the second time ever, but this time all my friends wanted to come. The person on the phone told me Yasuda could only serve 4 people at a time, which I'm pretty sure isn't true because I remember 4 other people besides my friend and I being served by him last time I was there with a friend. So this time we were forced to reserve a table. I'm concerned that the sushi will be less than heavenly if it's not by Yasuda himself. Also, I'm concerned I won't be able to order omakase if it's at a table (since clearly it can't be served one piece at a time).

Will I be disappointed having gone from in front of Yasuda to a table meal? Also, will I not be able to get chef's choice if I am seated at a table? Will anything be different other than the experience of having Yasuda talk with you and explain what you are getting? I know the restaurant can't go wrong, but I'm worried about my expectations being too high now. I don't want a tuna and salmon platter. I want interesting and different like I got last time. Please let me know what to expect.
Oh, and on a side note having nothing to do with this thread, I want to ask guttergourmet if he writes reviews of the sushi restaurants he visits because I would like to read his thoughts on certain places without having to sift through chowhound boards. I hope he comes across this thread.
