I made a reservation and took a client to this restaurant this past weekend. The food was superb and I had already decided to add this restaurant to my regular rotation when we were asked to leave because other people were waiting for tables. We had been at the restaurant for about an hour, weren't drinking or being loud, and had even ordered a second helping of sushi. Not only has this never happened to me before, but I've never heard of such a thing happening to anyone. It ruined the whole dinner and was embarrassing.

I hated, take note, *hated* fish in my entire life, especially raw fish but since my husband loves sushi, and the high recommendations of my friends, I have decided to try this place. We didn't check the menu and just told the waiter we will have the sushi omakase, since that was what they all suggested. He told us since each most of the sushi are flavored, he advised not to use soysauce. I was so nervous because I really hated fish or tastes anything like it. When the first plate came, and as I took the first sushi in my mouth... OH. MY. GOD! It made me a believer! It melts in your mouth, it taste so good that you can't wait for the next plate to arrive. My husband had to hush me because I was so noisy, making "mmm" sounds. It was definitely an experience, a great experience, actually. Our waiter explained each sushi we get. Don't get any appetizers or drinks. Just order the omakase and water and you are all set. I haven't tried the other food in their menu except for their ice cream. If you go to this place, get the omakase. You will never regret it.

I live on the UES and have tried almost every sushi place in town and Sushi Seki is hands down the best (why all the negative reviews?!) The fish is always the freshest and very well prepared. I'd recommend asking for a special roll--crunchy spicy tuna with tuna sashimi on top. Sushi Seki is more pricey than many other sushi places nearby, but like the old adage goes--you get what you pay for.

I agree with the reviews below that say this place is good but overpriced. For this price point and this style of sushi, I would pick somewhere else.

Great sushi every time we go, whether we get individual pieces or the sushi/sashimi set dinners. You'll need a reservation, even late at night. Come in on time, be nice, and they will be very nice to you. One thought about some of the negative reviews: it's possible, if you are late/rude/etc, that you won't get the most amazing service, but that's on you. We've always been nice (not weird nice, just normal human being nice), and have had the best service. and the BESTEST sushi.

I work for a high end Japanese restaurant in the city . I only eat Japanese being to Japan love Japanese food. Now the sushi was good but not the best. For instance don't order eel because they use the microwave instead of the toaster . The ambiance was okay. Location not really convenient ... Omakase for mor thag$80 , too much. Hand rolls no rice at all if should have some rice. Don't order chicken . Anyways overall good place if you wanna grab some sushi late night but remember expensive. This place is not for everyone. I don't make lot of money but I love Japanese food , and I like to treat my self once in a wile . Recommended . Yes but pricy . Thanks
