Diner Reviews
  • "We often frequent sushi places. Nisen is one of our favs. It has significantly fallen off for the service it's given people however. For the price point... The waiters should be more attentive. They definitely leave you wanting to get someone's attention when you need something as you often see people looking around for help. The place was unusually empty for a Saturday night. The TVs on the back wall in the bar area have left guests that are eating in the main area looking over your head to watch it and it can become quite distracting when you are eating against the booth wall. There were big shells left in my crab roll which I wasn't happy about but the sushi overall was good and specials were excellent. I would recommend. Service... Eh."

  • "This was our first time eating at Nisen, and I must say we'll definitely be coming back. We began with drinks, sake, mango martini's (just enough alcohol), and red sangria, all deliSh. I started with the miso soup and shrimp gyoza as an appetizer. The miso soup arrived hot and tasteful. The shrimp gyoza had a light crisp to the outside with a moist, flavorsome center, very good. My entree was the 2014 Volcano chef special roll, which I would highly recommend...delicious. My husband had the Nisen roll chef special and a few a la carte sushi rolls, everything was very tasty. The oreo funnel cake is outrageously good, not greasy at all. Also, I forgot my coupon at home and our kind waiter gave us the discount anyways, great service!"

  • "I've been going to Nisen for years, and it's always been excellent. Last night it was the worst sushi experience I've ever had. From the service to the quality of the sushi chefs rolls, it was terrible. It was 6pm and not that busy and all the tables around us also had similar complaints. We will not be going back to Nisen again."

  • "The sushi choices are excellent....and the presentation is superb! Everything is fresh and delicious. The restaurant is run very professional and the staff go above and beyond trying to please their customers. Once you walk in the restaurant you feel like you are dining in Manhattan. We have been here many times before as a couple or with a group. We will definitely be back!🍴"

  • "Great food, good service everyone very pleasant. Not happy with the table I had though. I requested a quiet table when I booked my reservation online and they sat us right in the main walkway. I will defiantly be returning."

  • "Weird to say for a sushi place but hands down one of the best chocolate souffles I've ever had. Worth the wait and I'd go back just for that. The green tea gelato that came with it was good too."

  • "our reservation was for 7 we arrived around 650 a few of the people i came with were there a little earlier and were having some drinks at the bar. once i checked in with the hostess staff that seemed very busy i told them we will be by the back bar while they get the table ready. time went by around 715...they never came to get us until i walked back over and said yes i checked in my party is all here is our table ready we had a reservation for 7. they were able to seat us right away then. but i wonder if i didn't come back to tell them would they come get us? i also do yelp and i noticed that they do offer yelp deals. food was great, service decent, would recommend this place again."

  • "Ive been to the place many times. On Friday- I entered there were 5 people when I walked in & no one was helping a customer and I stood there while no one greeted me and I began to look for my other party myself then the mgr finally asked if I needed help. I said no I've got it.. & walked myself to our table. The waiter was a very nice guy, he really wasn't there a lot though & we had to often ask the bus boy for help or to get him. He has way too many tables. The food, wine and and appetizers were amazing as always. It took forever for the main course but it was enjoyable. Service was EH overall. I still would recommend this place to others bc the food is that good & when they aren't so busy they are more attentive in the service dept."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "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 :)."

  • "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."

  • "It was packed the night we went with a very lively bar scene. (They have a good jalapeño mango martini-yum). Manager made sure we got seated promptly anyway. The best things to order are their rolls and we ordered mango Hawaii roll, Scottish goat roll,Dix hills roll and TNT roll which was our favorite. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
