    hit or miss? miss!

    Bad attitude from the receptionist from start to finish, wrong order twice, excuses and stressed out employees.. On a gorgeous NY evening in the mood for sushi.. Definitely not a hit but a miss.

    Sushi Seki? Sushi Pretty Delicious!

    Sushi Seki delivers perfectly acceptable and in some instances extraordinary pieces of sushi. Instead of the omakase, check out the Seki Special for one, which gives you some of Seki's signature pieces like blue fin with a tofu sauce (many will be recognizable from Sushi of Gari if you've been, as Seki was previously stationed there) and a dynamite piece of smoked eggplant. If you'd rather have a snack than go all out on an omakase, his spicy scallop handrolls have got to be some of the most satisfying bites I've had in a coon's age. Spicy mayo, sweet raw scallop and tempura flake combine to make a dish that satiates in both flavor and texture. The fact that it's open 'til 3am and is one of the Upper East Side's only saving graces for quality late night food also makes it a keeper.

    Not near the best!

    $60.00 for an Omakase which was nothing more then a sushi deluxe, sans rolls, with some rather bizarre pseudo-cross cultural sauces, and a soft shell crab roll about as brackish as a bag of supermarket potatoe chips, is not what I would concider to be high end dining.

    Don't believe the hype

    Omakase does not mean a 60 dollar sushi deluxe of 10 or 11 small pieces with some bizarre non Asian sauce or jalapenos. Fresh sushi can be found in all 5 boroughs of this city because the Asian population is that large and that demanding of quality. The Omakase was like something you would get in a New Jersey mall, and the soft shell crab roll was as brackish as a bag of supermarket brand potatoe chips. Avoid if possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best sushi in NYC!

    I've been eating sushi for 23 years on a weekly basis. I can truly say that Sushi Seki is quality all the way. Here is the catch..... If you only eat spicy tuna and spicy salmon rolls, Sushi Seki is not the place for you. In order to understand why Sushi Seki is so amazing, you have to be willing to try ANYTHING! I always make sure to make a reservation and sit at the sushi bar. Order the Omakase (chef's choice) and enjoy!

    Great Sushi/Poor Service!

    The sushi here is absolutely great. I highly recomment you start with the snowpea salad. However the hostess has so much of an attitude it almost doesnt make the experience worth it.

    Much Ado About Nothing

    How this restaurant attained its reputation is an absolute mystery. The decor is unattractive. The service is brusque, even rude, inefficient and inattentive. Prices are high, but the sushi/sashimi is merely average for New York and other major cities, whether viewed in terms of quality, selection or presentation. Other menu items are consistently poor. Experienced and discerning diners are advised to look elsewhere.
