I went with a few friends after work. We hadn't seen each other for a year and were eager to catch up. The positives: The appetizers (agedashi tofu and tuna with yam) were amazing! The main course was the special and it was ok. The negatives: The busboy kept taking away my napkin as soon as I used a corner of it; as a result, I had to continuously ask for a new napkin. And, as the restaurant started to fill up, the staff started hovering around our table. The bill came with the dessert and as soon as it was paid, the manager actually came over and asked us to leave. I hadn't even finished my tea! In summary, with it's "B" rating, it's good if you want some quick Japanese food, but not if you're with a group or with old friends trying to catch up.

Sushi Den has the best sushi in all of nyc. It is absolutely delicious and it is always my first choice for when I eat sushi. The service is great, everyone is very attentive and kind. They have the freshest fish, and reminds me of sushi restaurants in Japan. It is the best for sushi!

I checked this site out before I went there becuse I was looking for some good sushi. The sushi was very goof. The salmon teryaki wasn't the best as it was light on the teriyaki but the sushi was great. Expensive but damn good.

About a month ago I came here for my birthday and they gave me a 20% discount coupon to use for my next meal here. I came back for dinner but inadvertently forgot to bring the coupon. When I showed up I told the host at the front desk about the situation and asked if I could leave my credit card info and bring him the coupon the next day if they still honored the discount, he flatly said no and made up some b.s. excuse about the front office "needing to reconcile the prices" even though it was 7 o'clock at night. I was so turned off by his demeanor that I said I would have to cancel the dinner and before I could even finish getting the sentence out of my mouth he goes "too bad" and crosses my name off the list. Apparently a satisfied customer spending $80 in their restaurant is less important to them than an angry customer spending $0. I can only imagine a "real" upscale restaurant treating their (repeat) customers this way. No matter how much I appreciated their food I will never go back and never recommend this restaurant to anyone due to the treatment I received.

If you're looking for a great, high end sushi experience without the people-watching or long wait for reservations give Sushiden a try. From the moment you walk in you notice that most of the clientele is Japanese. A good sign for the quality and authenticity of the food. We started with the Tempura Moriawase, an assortment of battered and lightly fried items including shrimp, eggplant, zucchini and several other veggies. Perfectly light and crisp with plenty of flavor. The Unagi Kabayaki, (broiled eel in a sweet BBQ sauce) is also delicious, though a few more pieces would have been appreciated. Finally, the sushi itself. We opted for two of Sushiden's special rolls, the Spider Roll and the New York Crunch roll. Both looked beautiful on the plate and tasted just as good. I have already gone back several times and most recently opted for one of the private rooms. Upon arrival the traditionally dressed waitress escorted my guest and I upstairs where we were asked to remove our shoes before entering the room. Inside you can almost imagine you're in Japan. A great experience, and well worth the extra $50.

This is the best and most authentic sushi anyone can get in New York. As native of Japan, I can guarantee you will enjoy the fresh Sushi with the nice texture of vinegar rice. Well, this is for those, who wants to experience the authentic Sushi. If you want to enjoy the Americanized one e.g. Philadelphia roll, please go to another place.

This den has some of the most authentic sushi I have eaten. The food is always fresh and just melts in your mouth. On every trip to NYC, I make sure I eat at least once at this gem of a den! Not to be missed. BTW, this is my first review.....The staff is extra courteous too!! I just felt compelled to write something about this place.
