First went here 2 years ago and was not impressed. Just went and had one of the best sushi meals. Took the advice of other reviewers and had the spicy scallop and chopped eel and avocado. DELICIOUS. Also really yummy was the seared salmon. food is on the pricey side but in my opinion worth it.

I also had omakase and was pleasantly surprised. "Neta" (the raw fish on rice) were all creative, very much like Sushi of Gari's. This is a very good alternative to Gari which is over-priced. At Sushi Seki you can get similar type/quality of sushi at half the price. Appetizers were also very refined. We had geso (squid legs) and yamaimo tempura which were very fresh and tasty. I highly recommend this place. Prices are good in general, but sake's are pricy. I wish they had shochu.

I recomend the Omakase, for the price, I think it is very good, the wine selection is very limited, and I wish they had a better selction of champagne. If you drink, be ready to pay a high price, otherwise the food is great. I also recommend sitting at the bar area. Whatever you do, don't drive to the area, the parking is almost non-existent. This restaurant is a hidden jem!

Seki is the man.. PERIOD! The medium Toro is incredible. I've been sushi shopping across the globe.. and Seki is the freshest! You have to sit at the right side of the sushi bar to get the best quality.. **** you must try the chopped eel with avocado, the chopped toro and the spicy scallop handroll is to DIE for!.. The decor is bad.. but who the heck cares.. I'm there at least twice a week!... once Seki gets to know you .. you don't even have to speak he remembers everyone.. what they like and don't like.. I can't say enough Seki rocks.

Lucky enough to live nearby, I've been to this place many times, it is amazing. I've been to many of the "top" sushi places in the city, and this is better than all of them.

I have some friends who "think" they are sushi afficianados, and they rave and rave about this place. I tried the omakase and the fish is good, and the chef does have an imagination... but in the end, it was not "all that". Definitely over priced.

The optimal experience at Seki is at the sushi bar where you can order sushi by the piece - the best medium toro; japanese yellowtail with Jalepeno sauce; snapper with sea salt; japanese scallop; mackarel with ginger and scallions; white eel; freshest uni and uni shiso tempura; and, spicy scallop rolls with crisp seaweed wrappers.
