    Addicted to the fresh fish

    I'm a regular at Sushi Seki. It is my favorite place for fresh fish. My favorites are the spicy scallop roll, the oyster roll, the seared salmon, the sunomono, and the omakase. The style of presentation is perhaps not as visually "fancy" as Gari but the taste is amazing. It's true it's not cheap but well worth it for the high quality of food. The flavors are simple and elegant.

    Best Sushi I've Ever Had

    Very fresh sushi, interesting twist to every piece (amazing sauces and accompaniments). Our waiter knew everything there is to know about the food. However, we did have to wait at least 45 minutes for our table, and there's really no waiting area or bar area. The decor is extremely plain, and the place is pretty cramped, but neither took away from the amazing food. Go there only if you aren't on a tight budget.

    Too Hyped Up

    After reading the great reviews and noting it had gotten a 27 in the Zagat, we went to Sushi Seki recently to venture outside of our normal sushi spot, which we love. We had the omakase at the bar -- and it was a disappointment. The sushi rice was still warm and crumbled as we tried to eat the sushi. The fish selection was tastey, but not presented in a particularly memorable or mind-blowing way. It's fine, and it's great that Sushi Seki is open late.

    Good but not great...

    The food is good but not great. It is on the expensive end. There are better Japanese for less in the city.

    Best Sushi Bar Ever!

    If you love Sushi you must eat with Seki-San. Sushi Seki has inncredible Sushi. However, you must know how to eat there. Go to the bar and just ask for the chef special... It will be great, but beware the bill!

    My parents and I have been trying to find a good sushi place for a while now. And I am happy to report our search is now over. I discovered sushi seki here on menu pages, and because of the reviews I though it couldn't hurt to try. BOY WAS I IN FOR A SURPRISE!! We arrived about 10 mins before our 9:30 reservation and the place was packed. While we waited, we were treated to a bottle of echigo beer, which was is so smooth that if your not carefull you might end up stumbling out of Seki rather than walking. When were seated I ordered the spicy scallop hand roll that everyone raved about, and I really must say WOW. I could not believe what I was experiencing the combination of flavors were so explosive it really was a great primer to what I had in store later. For my entree I decided to order the Omakase, which to my delight Seki prepared for me himself! While $60 may be a little pricey, it was well worth the price. The fish was so fresh and tasty, that each piece was a new wonder. OH BTW if you think that this is one of those sushi places were you drop $80 bucks and get little food, Think Again. Seki will keep feeding you until you yell No Mas!! Some people find the decor uninspiring, I would certainly have to disagree, it’s actually very cozy, and besides that, the food is so good who cares! The wait staff really made the experience that much better, they were courteous from the time we arrived till the time we left. I really can't wait to go back. P.S. You will not be able to enjoy sushi the same way again when you leave this place, because no place will have anything as fresh and as imaginative as this one.
