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.

unbelievably meh. does not live anywhere near up to its hype. fish was fine, very fresh, but not outstanding. people who say this is the best sushi in nyc have probably never eaten sushi anywhere else. this reminds me of the hype sushi of gari got, which was undeserved. these places are not serving serious sushi. if you want top notch fish and creativity, this is not the place

Sushi Seki is probably the very best Sushi restaurant in NY. I've experienced sushi in many restaurants and once you eat Seki's sushi, you can't even stomach other sushi places... As another poster mentioned...you need to sit at the Sushi bar ONLY...if possible, sit on the right side, as that is where Seki himself fixes up your sushi....order the Omikase, and enjoy! It's truly the best experience, and you gotta do it!

i come here on an occasional saturday night real late after a long night and eat great rolls. I cant say enough about my appreciation for a sushi place opened at 230 in the morning.

I went here with a good friend of mine for dinner. It was phenomenal. Not many restaurants have you declaring "Awesome!" after almost every bite but this place definitely does. I highly recommend the Omakase, or chef's choice as you will be progressively impressed with each piece. I have had sushi all over the world and this place is right up there with Gari and Masa and it's better than 90% of places in Tokyo. I highly recommend for a great sushi night. Favorites: Uni with Qual egg, Spicy Scallop hand-roll.

I chose Suhi Seki as the location for my birthday dinner this year, and my bf and I also recently took some visitors from out of town there. It is a solid choice if you have a special occasion to celebrate and you love sushi. I agree wholeheartedly with other posters that you really have to order the chef's special omakase in order to fully appreciate this restaurant. That is all we have ever ordered there, and it is very much worth it. The sushi is like art, and there is such an incredible variety presented when you order this way. I have never left a meal there less than amazed, or less than stuffed because I kept ordering more.

Sushi Seki is the best sushi ever. You have to sit at the Sushi Bar and order Omakase to truly experience it.
