After all the good reviews I read about this place I thought I will have fantastic sushi. But actually I was really disappointed! The sushi were not that good, the pieces were very small, in sum nothing exciting! And really pricey for the quality/quantity. I had much better sushi in many other less expensive places in NY

Sushi was less then what we expected. Too sloppy, not enough creativity, small pieces. Nothing special - just good sushi and is not worth the money. Got chef's special 9 pieces for $50, sushi did not compare to Sushi Gary and Sushi Gary's atmosphere.

The atmosphere in this place is not shi-shi though it's priced like it. It is, however, the absolutely most amazing sushi experience I've ever had. Out of this world, off the charts, head and shoulders better than sushi joints frequented by mere mortals. Fit to serve the emperor.

anyone who was dissappointed with this place apparently did not know what to order. the ultimate experience out of all the sushi places in not only NY but anywhere else i have eaten (and there have been a lot).. For the ultimate experience, must get seat at the sushi bar, and order chefs choice and when you have had enough, just say "done". It may be pricey for some by choosing this option, but it is the only way to experience what real sushi is. If you are consider eating sushi by ordering "rolls", then it is not a sushi experience you are looking for. we have eaten in numerous sushi place in and out of the US and this can't be beat.

Anyone who posts anything negative about Seki except for the severely lacking atmosphere (but honestly who cares about that, you are there for sushi not some b.s. ambiance) knows NOTHING ABOUT SUSHI! Seki himself handpicks all of the finest fish flown in from Japan mostly. If you ever spent the time to talk to him about his craft you would realize what a true master he is. But those of you posting your ridiculous critiques that Sushi Seki is a place only novices would like simply demonstrates how severely lacking your own palates are, or perhaps your truly juvenile ordering skills. Here is how you can rectify this: go in and order the omakase and if you don't enjoy it, check into the nearest mental institution because you are clinically insane.

sat at the counter. all sushi chefs are nice. but the sushi is nothing special. too salty, too sloppy, not enough creativity. will not revisit unless it is in my neighborhood.

I ate at Sushi Seki last night for the first time, and WOW, this place is a sleeper, in fact I would say it is the best sushi outside of Masa in the city. Starting from the Shumai, to the Spicy Scallop roll, everything was extremely fresh and delicious. One of us got the Omakase, and although it is not a large amount of food, 50$ for 9 pieces of sushi and a handroll, I certainly think worth it..Toro was also superb. A must try for any hardcore sushi lover. Don't forget the Eel and avacado roll- dynamite.
