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

For the price of this place I'd expect more in terms of service, decor and overall experience. The sushi was good but not great.

I have been coming to this place for years and have eaten in many other fine sushi places in the NYC area. In order to get the best sushi experience, you have to sit at the sushi bar and ask for the omakase. There are 2 kinds of omakase, sashimi/sushi or sushi. With Sashimi/Sushi, Seki will start you off with approximately 7-10 pieces of sashimi, then will serve you sushi 1 piece at a time. I have brought numerous people to the restaurant and pretty much all of them (well over 20 people) have said it was the best sushi they have ever eaten. Some of the favorites are Chopped Eel/Avocado, Whitefish, SnoCrab, and of course, the signature item - Spicy Scallop Roll! It's not cheap, but you are not going to get a much better quality than Sushi Seki!

I have been reading about this restaurant for months, and I must tell you after finally going.. I'm disappointed! P.s. I eat sushi 2-4 times a week and know what I am saying for those who are just as devoted to good food!

after not going to sushi seki for about a year, we've recently gone back. we always get the omakase - the food is still good (mostly the same) but the prices have gone up. with the increased prices, i would recommend going somewhere else, where service, decor etc. matches the prices.
