    My friends and I happened upon this little gem during a snowstorm. We had never been there before and our minds were blown when we saw the decor. It looked like a restaurant straight out of Tokyo. It was still early in the evening so we sat at one of the tables at the bar. We ordered several cocktails and Japanese whiskeys and variety of plates to share. I highly recommend the Kurage Washugyu Yaki Shabu beef, which you sear on a hot stone at your table, and the assorted sashimi. The Garlic Shiso Fried Rice is also a good side to get. Yes, it's pricey, but the quality was above par and so was the service.

    Japanese Brasserie - Not a sushi place!

    I love EN! This place is a typical Japanese brasserie. Do not make the "rookie" mistake of the last reviewer (Rosemary) to order sushi or sashimis there.. The point of such a place is to try they regular menu: black cod, braised tuna, homemade tofu.. The whole experience is amazing! Beware: It is pricey (like any other good japanese place that serve delicate and fresh food)

    Overpriced, underqualitied

    I live right nearby EN, and have ordered food from all over the W Village, so I ordered from seamless. Very expensive, and objectionably ordinary. The sashimi was near $30 and consisted of 3 slabs of tuna, and 3 pieces each of two kinds of white fish. The cuts were not well executed, and the textures and tastes didn't impress as anything other than standard fare. At $3 a piece, with little variety and standard quality, I felt ripped off. The garlic fried rice was a gloopy, greasy affair with some dried herbal toppings on the side. $10! With tax and tip, nearly $50 for a most unsatisfactory delivery order. Perhaps the in-restaurant experience is better, but based on this order, I can't recommend.

    Pretty Space; Falls Short on Food & Service

    EN is in a high-ceilinged, sleek, very Japanese-looking space on Hudson Street. The lighting is adequate to see the food you order. The air is a bit smoky (from the kitchen, not cigarettes), but not intolerably so. The service is lackluster at best. We sat for a long time before the waitron took our order. During dinner, our water glasses went unfilled, a sure sign of inattentive wait staff. As for food, my SO ordered tea, which arrived in a cute iron pot. Too bad the pot was Lilliputian. $6 for probably 5 ounces of tea is obscene. We had edamame to start. The edamame were fine, but truth be told, a Midwestern mom could make acceptable edamame. Next up was a vegetable sushi roll the name of which escapes me now. The veggies were crisp and fresh; the cabbage added an unexpected burst of crunch. Pretty nice. Black Sea Bass Nitsuke was the main course. The fish was served whole in the soy sauce used to braise the fish. On the side were some carrot, spinach and lotus root. First, the soy sauce must have been regular rather than low-sodium (unless chef salted the fish) because the dish was surprisingly salty. Less salt would have improved the dish. Second, the fish was very, very fishy. My SO and I eat a lot of fish, and this was by far the fishiest swimming thing we have been served in a long time. The fishy flavor was so strong she bailed after only a few bites. I choked it own because I was so hungry. Despite the nice setting, EN’s mediocre service and food cannot justify the fat prices or a positive review. Seek your Japanese cuisine elsewhere.

    Great food but service is not great

    I've been to this restaurant many times and the food has been consistently good. It's pricey at dinner but lunch is a very good deal. The service could be improved though. Last time the waitress seemed like she could have used a cup of coffee or two.

    great lunch

    I went there for lunch with my husband. I had the soba noodles, which I really liked. The duck was extremely tender, melting in your mouth. The only downside to the duck was there were only 3 pieces and had a bit of fat on it. The miso cod was also good. The fish was somwhat small but flavorful. We also started with the tofu as an appetizer which was extremely silky. Overall, we liked the food and would go back.

    Engaging to say the least

    Throw out any expectations you have about Japanese food, there's a couple of sushi rolls, but the place is all about modern preparations of both local and Japanese gourmet foods. Sample dishes we've had include sea urchin hot pot, stone grilled chicken served table side, crab miso soup, Berkshire pork with ponzu sauce, etc. Place goes from casual to suit and tie, the atmosphere and presentation is as intricate and flawless as the food... a very unique experience. A bit expensive, but not surprising for what it is... we save this one for special occasions and guests. :)
