    melts in your mouth

    takes a pretty incredible sushi joint to please my japanese, sushi-snob husband, but we both agree it's our new favorite. the omakase was divine - the sushi melts in your mouth (it melts in your chopsticks even before it even hits your mouth - it's THAT good). clever, delicious flavor combinations make for excellent sushi creations. it's a must-try!

    The best

    It is pricey but def worth it. They have a wonderful sake list and the chef's choice are simply amazing. So far best sushi I have ever had the pleasure of having, eel with avocado, spicy scallop hand roll and toro are the standouts. Will def be returning, plus how amazing is it that they're open late? (Such a rarity on the upper eazy!)

    Seki Is The Man!

    I'm not sure what restaurant Sushi Connoisseur ate at, but Sushi Seki is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC and by far my favorite sushi restaurant. Every time I go, Seki gives me something new to try, and there is nothing more fun that sitting at the sushi bar sampling his delicious creations and kicking back with a bottle of sake (try the Jouzen). It is definitely not cheap, and definitely not worth going if you aren't will to move beyond your standard tuna roll / california roll type sushi, but once you taste the spicy scallop handroll or the seared toro, I guarantee you will never want to try another bite of sushi from anywhere else ever again!

    Mediocre fish, outrageous prices

    I read all your rave reviews of this rip off on 1st Ave, so I hurried over to Sushi Seki... I guess you guys are from the landlocked states. Seki is an average sushi place in every way except for the astronomical prices. We ordered the $50 Omakase (Chef's Choice) which somehow ended up being $80 each, once you include tax, tip and a green salad you somehow get a $200 dinner for two with no drinks. Now if you're thinking, 200 stones is not so bad for a top of the line joint in the Upper East Side, then you're right. Maybe we hit an off night, but most of the miniscule, half-bite sized pieces were slathered in some kind of sauce that overpowered the fish. Not that I minded so much cause the fish needed some help.

    The Best!

    Seki is the best sushi in the city. We have been to all of the famed sushi places and Seki cant compare. If you go, make sure that you sit at the bar and just let Seki order for you. You will not be disappointed.

    Delightful Discovery

    My friend's new apartment is right around the corner. I heard about Sushi Seki and how good it was. It was the best sushi I have eaten in about five years. A much better value than Gari and more comfortable, too.The service was very attentive and the assorted vegetarian appetizers we ordered were like jewels. The fish was fresh and beautifully presented. I will return again and again.

    Converted

    If you don't like sushi, you should definitely go to sushi seki and try the omakase. I can't keep track of the number of people I have converted into sushi lovers, including my husband. He refused to go to Japanese restaurants when we first met. Then we had omakase at Seki and he loved it. Now he still refuses to eat Japanese except at Sushi Seki. Once you have tasted real sushi at Seki, you will never be able to go back to the run of the mill Makis and rolls and such.
