    Great atmosphere

    Food was very good and I loved the atmosphere. The only problem was service. It took us such a long time to get our waiter every single time we wanted to order something. Also, we had three different waiters taking care of our table and each one of them was not clear of what we ordered with another waiter. So we had to order the same thing over and over. The worst thing they did was that the waiter who picked up our tab was checking the tip right in front of us!

    Great Food

    We order a few a la carte items and the sushi for 2 platter. Wow was I impressed. It was like I was back in Japan to a neighborhood wine bar and had some great simple dishes. I would recommend any fan of japanese food to go give this place a try. You will thank me when you do. Things to have... Tofu (of course), Kakuni, Tsukune, Age Tofu, and the Sushi.

    Managers must be reading

    Last week in the shibuya section of tokyo we had an amazing meal at EN. Upon returning home to nyc, we wanted to try EN on hudson, but were a little afraid after reading this message board about poor service. Clearly the managers of EN must be reading, because the service was better than most nyc restaurants. We called at 9pm asking to make a res for two at 10PM and were told to just walk in. We had to wait about 10 minutes, and were thanked for waiting. Our waiter went out of his way to explain the menu and didn't push anything on us. We weren't sure if we ordered enough, and he said he's keep an eye on us in the event we suddenly wanted more, and didn't try to up-sell. The food was as good, if not better in some cases, as tokyo. The cod was outstanding.

    Incredible Food But Really Poor Service

    Had dinner at EN for my birthday with a bunch of friends. Everyone couldn't stop saying how delicious the food was, even down to the desserts. It was incredibly tasty. Nobu used to be my favorite restaurant but EN would steal its place anytime if it wasn't for the aweful and rude service. Basically, the server looked like she didn't want to be there. Throughout our dinner she was unfriendly, unattentive, and sneared at us quite a bit. She kept saying, "that's all you are ordering?". Just don't let her intimidate you and push you into ordering more because what we had ordered was enough and we were all full. Some of the dishes were quite small, but I definitely do not recommend the rice pot. That was the only dish that was not tasty. I highly recommend the mochi croquette, japanese sea bass, fried chicken, fried yuba roll with cheese, miso cod, freshly-made scooped tofu, sauteed duck breast, deep fried red snapper, flourless chocolate cake, and the ice cream sampler. Will definitely return and try the rest of the menu. Hopefully, I will not get the same server.

    Great Food Bad service

    This is Kyoto Style food with a Tokyo meets Brooklyn in Manhattan atmosphere. The food was excellent. We tried as many dishes as possible everything was great, oh warm fresh tofu so good. Please don't go to this place and order sushi - you would be missing the point - it would be like going to Peter Luger's and ordering chicken. On the other hand the service was so bad. I will give this place one more chance considering the food was incredible. It is such a shame because with the staff they have now it will not be around for very long. EN you brought the taste of Japan to NYC now bring the service.

    Mediocre food and poor service

    Dinner this past Saturday (11/28/04) was a major disapppointment - architecturally stunning but with a loud and incompatible soundtrack wailing, we were seated at a corner table with menus in a not full dining room. We then waited over half an hour until our "server" appeared despite flagging down bus boys and other "attendants" and requesting service; finally a waitress appeared without apology and took our drink order which was overpriced in line with the rest of the so called food. The rest of her service was abrupt and unattending; while the tofu was served warm and unique and the miso sampler was tasty, the rest of the food was mediocre and overpriced, including a daikon with minced chicken plate that was inedible. The miso soup arrived at the end of the meal, and an order of garlic fried rice, which we asked the mute waitress or "server" to accompany an overpriced entree of salmon in soy sauce, never appeared and when we told the waitress to cancel it and get us a check immediately, she still insisted that it would be ready in a "few minutes". As we left, we tried to register our displeasure with the front desk but it was unattended. We grabbed a cab and said, "Never Again!".

    Yummy Yummy Yummy

    I loved it the minute I walked in. With no reservations and told to wait for 45 mins at 9pm on Friday night, I was quickly directed to the dim-lit cosy bar. After a Japanese cocktail, we were quickly seated. Fresh tofu, shrimp fritters, two amazing fried chicken appetizers followed by light crisp tempura, miso cod and pork belly.... mmm.... mmm... mmm.... and then followed with fresh kanpachi --- just like I remembered it in Tokyo. All washed down with reasonable priced bottle of dry sake. Excellent value. All this for only 60 per person......loved it!
