Some of the best sushi ever. The salmon is delicate, buttery and melts in your mouth. The tuna is amazing. Service was attentive, laid back, professional. This is a small place so there might be a wait. My only complaint is the pieces of fish are a little small and the prices a little high but the food is tremendous.

The freshest, most simple, filling and delicious preparations -- no gimmicks... and my server knew all about the sauce ingredients so she helped me avoid dishes that would be problematic for my health. A real gem, both the restaurant and server!

went for first time with good friends who always eat at sushi gari -my daughter made me go food was above average , but not great-we were sat 15 minutes after our reservation, and then while we were enjoying dessert, we were asked to leave because they needed the table- we sat for 1 hour only- would never go back

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.
