Yasuda only at bar?

Last week I had a great meal at Yasuda at a table. But last nights dinner there at a table was not good. My dinner at Yasuda was not good.
The service was by a waiter with a strong Japanese accent and a lisp, who removed plates as I was still chewing my food. He did not bring more ginger with new plates of sushi, even though we had finished our first small allotment of ginger. After we had been there 45 minutes (we arrived on time), he said it was last call.
In general, the sushi was mediocre compared with my sushi during my previous experiences at Yasuda and elsewhere. Specifically, the Uni had a strong metallic taste; the Maguro was not great; nothing was exceptional; and, rolls had soggy nori even though we ordered them separately. And, by the way, my chawanmushi was undercooked and it tasted as though they had used water instead of daishi.

Is bar service more consistent? Do they rush you at the bar also?
