Good food, ambiance,
service. Friendly atmosphere just a little slow on the service end. This is a large restaurant with several chef. For this reason the service is slow but friendly and the food is good and nicely presented. I would definitely return to this place knowing that waiting is part of the deal."

Very nice sushi & sashimi, but
portions are absurdly small. Essentially, it takes 3-4 pieces of their sashimi to equal emost other sushi places portions. That said, the sashimi is of excellent quality & you get to choose between farmed salmon (yecch!) or wild salmon, which is a nice change. Other item, like the "taco" are terrific, but also pricey & small. I never mind paying something of a high price for a great meal, but this is a little excessive for what it is. The chairs are from hunger-couldn't be cheaper or more uncomfortable. They could've done a little better here. Finally, the noise level is extremely high. Still, the food is excellent, so I'll probably return & let my wallet cry all it wants to :)."

Tasty, fresh sushi, featuring
interesting roles. Lively ambience. A great choice if you're in the mood for a special evening alone or with friends. The only negative: the drinks are mediocre but are on par with Manhattan prices. If you're going to charge $14 for a drink, it should be good!"

From the minute you walk in the
door, you are attended to. The staff is pleasant, helpful and always smiling. The food is fantastic ! ! ! ! !. We were unsure of which specialty roll to get and the waitress made a suggestion . . .the roll was the top table pleaser. Second best being the Volcano 2014 roll. A great experience. I will be back again."

My husband and daughter decided to
do a 'day after Valentine's Day' dinner at Nisen and were so happy we did. The special appetizers and rolls were not only delicious but some of the most beautiful I've seen at a Japanese restaurant. Our server was such a sweetheart and we finally were able to sit in one of the comfy booths since we went early. I say this because one of the reasons we don't go to Nisen as often is because I can't stand the hard white chairs they have in the main dining room area. I recommend that when you make a reservation you try to request the booth if you are able to."

Booked reservation 2 hours before.
They accepted and were closed. Drove 20 mins. Thanks open table. Great service"

This restaurant is very good and
has to be supported by everyone who loves good fresh Japanese food"

Everything was delicious as always
at Nisen. However as expected on valentines day we waited extra long for our dinner. It was a beautiful atmosphere, we requested a booth and were able to sit at one on such a busy night. It was perfect because we had our daughter with us. Great valentines day. Delicious specials."
Dined on 2/14/2014
The good here was fantastic! One
of the best sushi I have had! The service here was terrible. They stuck us right by the bathrooms even though we had a reservation and asked for a booth. They were very rude to us and acted like they were too good to be serving us. Our waiter was exceptionally nice and got everything we asked for. The hostesses need more mannerS."

Nisen Sushi looks and feels like
an upscale NYC restaurant. The sushi is very fresh and tasty. The appetizers are original and delicious. Service is always very good. We go there often."
Dined on 2/1/2014
For the amount of sushi/hibachi
style restaurants on Long Island, nisen is definitely one you should over look. I normally don't care about the price as long as the food is worth it. I feel like I spent $100 for me and my fiancé to eat freezer style hibachi from the supermarket. Never mind them having the worst service that I've seen in this style restaurant on Long Island."

Great sushi, numerous
choices....overall great experience !!"

We've been here many times and the
sushi is always fresh and the roll assortment is unique. There are booths along the side that are nice for groups of about 6."

monkey and huntington especially. service lacking and unattentive. will go back but have more realistic expectations."

Service is great Sushi is
exceptional Better than kotobuki by far Miyogi beef was insanely good , go for The $35 it was worth it"

The food as Nisen is delicious.
The service was poor. We often had to look for our server & she tried to give us our check before we were finished with our dinner."
Dined on 12/30/2013
Went here with family from out of
town.... A girls' night out. We got a booth at my sister-in-law's suggestion. Couldn't have been more perfect. It was very intimate so we didn't have to worry about bothering other diners with our laughter, etc. Our waitress found the balance between good service and the 'space' we were looking for while we caught up. I am not a sushi expert but everything I rated was delish(the spider rolls were so awesome we ordered an extra one!). It wasn't cheap but if you are looking for an upscale experience it's worth the visit!"

We were visiting in Commack and
this restaurant was recommended to us by a few people. We found the decor to be very attractive, the sushi was delicious and fresh tasting. My wife had the teriyaki chicken and found it a little bland. She requested some additional sauce which was brought but didn't improve the situation much. Biggest negative about this visit was the service - the server was extremely abrupt. The restaurant would do well to teach their servers to smile and appear more friendly. I would recommend the restaurant for the food, but don't expect to be wowed by the service."

Close to home, sushi always good,
pretty bar. Nothing bad to say! Love Nisen"
Dined on 12/27/2013
4 years ago I promised myself to
never go back because of the offensive service. I made an exception for friends of mine and what a huge mistake. 1. Forgot to bring drinks to table. 2. Made an entire entree wrong. 3. We were told a roll came with the sashimi deluxe and when it came without I asked why. At that point I was told "it depends on the grade of fish you receive. If you get high grade fish you don't get a roll. If you get lower grade fish then you get a roll." That sounds crazy to me......that they would compensate for bad fish with more bad fish. 4. They ran out of rice! I will never go back as it was a huge disappointment."

Seated immediately. Good staff.
Helpful and easy going. Decent California Roll, seaweed salad, and Cajun Filet appetizer. Main courses were the Filet Mingon. Tasty if not a bit over sauced. And I had the rack of lamb, well prepared even if a little to medium instead of my medium rare. All in all... Tasty and worth a reorder. The only weak part of the meal was the funnel cake fried Oreos. Was a little like eating an old Zeppole. Feh not worth the calories or $10. Nice nite. Good meal. Would def. go back and recommend."

Extensive menu. Great service. No
wait with our reservation."

Before the renovation, Nisen Sushi
in Commack was a place to get amazing sushi. With the renovation, it has the same incredible sushi but the added glitz of a NYC restaurant. They prepare great Chef's special sushi rolls, as well as great appetizers. The service is great, as most waiters/waitresses give suggestions of what is good on the menu."
Dined on 8/10/2013
But not this time...i thought
everything was mediocre....server was fantastic, they were off their game and out of several fish I usually eat. I don't mind paying a lot for dinner when I have a "great meal"....perhaps because it was wednesday night."

This is our favorite sushi
restaurant and Sandy is the best and sweetest waitress. She remembers you by name and even remembers what you like to order."
Dined on 9/15/2013
The sushi here, as always, was
first rate. They should pay some attention to the sound level of the music, which was too high when we got there (they turned it down when requested) and polish their wait staff a bit."
Dined on 7/27/2013
we were in town from VA and tried
this restaurant and the food, service and atmosphere was great! What a gem!"
Dined on 7/26/2013
Used to be a local favorite but
after being away for a year it was not as good as it had been. Dishes were over seasoned. The spicy tuna was so spicy it had to be sent back. Chicken teriyaki had a taste of white pepper. The sushi was not as pristine as it had been. We won't be missing it any more."
Dined on 7/19/2013
Both nisens have digressed as the
quality suffers along with the service. Arata in syosset is the best sushi around and priced fairly."

I was surprised to have never
heard of Nisen before but I'm glad I have now. Wonderful food with good service. We will be back for sure."

We went here for our daughter's
30th birthday along with her boyfriend. I must say I had one of the best Bento boxes of any Japanese restaurant I have been to. Her boyfriend ordered a sashimi dish, I think, (I could not hear what he had ordered) & the presentation was awesome! It was a lovely dining experience. On the down side, when I went to order a dessert, the waittress only then pointed out that they were out of the first 2 items on the menu list. She should have informed us of this when handing out the dessert menus. None of us ordered dessert. Yes, I would return"

The Kobe Beef meatballs were
awesome! Could have made a meal just out of those. Read some reviews saying it's pricey. Definitely worth the price and I've been in more expensive places where the food wasn't nearly as good."
Dined on 4/26/2013
Hadn't been to Nisen in a while,
but will go more often now. The rolls were delicious, and there was a great variety from which to choose. Waitress was very attentive, yet knew not to be too attentive. Rolls are a little more expensive than elsewhere, but the ambiance is nicer too."

Nice decor and atmosphere. Great
modern place to take a date. Good food and good low lighting."

fOOD WAS DELICIOUS BUT THE SERVICE
