  • "I'm not sure why the restaurant is named SUteiShi, but the sushi is good. I especially recommend the fusion nigiri sushi. The specialty rolls aren't as good. Service was excellent, and the local ambience is especially appealing in warm weather."

  • "Everything was either up-to-par or beyond. There were 2 dings, however. I was not happy with the 2 sake pairings - my taste buds just couldn't comprehend this information. One was trying to mimic Jagermeister. I did enjoy the one that I personally picked off the menu. The other ding happened during dessert. We decided to order 2 different desserts & share. Unfortunately, she ordered a caramel chocolate cake and was served a very old & dry chocolate macaroon. Apart from these, everything else was enjoyable. The fried bananas were delicious in a tempura-style. The sushi items were either decent or excellent. Japanese love technology and it comes out in the decor. If you visit, definitely try the salmon tartar & the pear ice tea."

  • "excellent rolls, reasonably priced for manhattan. If you check in on yelp they'll give you free Sake if you order the shrimp appetizer, do it! It's amazing"

  • "This is your average sushi spot with relatively unaverage price. Normally a sushi lunch with a 1-2 rolls should cost about 20 dollars. The total bill with no alcohol (it was a work day) and only 3 rolls shared between the two of us came out to just over $65."

  • "Loved the sushi here. Its a lot of food (unless you get one of the special rolls) and its all fresh and yummy. A great escape for a lunch in FiDi. I cant wait to come back!"

  • "The decor, full window-walls, and service provided a great, trendy environment for lunch. Our waitress was very pleasant; asked the chef to make adjustments (I'm allergic to avocado) and provided service with a smile. This is rare in this city. The sushi was average, but I only had the angelfish roll and edamame, so that is not a fair assessment. The eggplant appetizer was amazing. I would go back again and try some additional rolls!"

  • "This small restaurant is a great sushi/sashimi place. It was closed after Sandy for over a year but now is open again. Great food, small space. They have a good selection of food. The wine list is very small but ok."

  • "I am so happy this restaurant re opened after Hurricane Sandy..I was there in the fall when the kitchen was not fully opned and having just gone again now that eveything is back in full swing, was truly a delight! the food is nothing short of fantastic....I live in the neighborhood so its mostly locals with a few tourist staying in hotels nearby....if you love Japanese food this place is a must and if you don't live in the neighborhood its certainly worth the trip!"

  • "I went to SUteiSHIi recently on a double-date and had a lovely time. The server was very attentive and helpful with making recommendations. The restaurant had some actual elbow room (which is not always a given in NY). The noise-level was comfortable (and the music selection, while odd - 90's alt-rock? - was fun and unexpected). It's the the absolute best sushi I've ever eaten or the least expensive, but it was worth the trip!"

  • "I am very picky about my sushi and I have to say, this was some of the best I have ever had and the portions were very generous! Our server was also super nice, young and sweet and he seemed so genuinely happy. The rest of the staff was also very nice and accommodating and were all do pleasant."

  • "Really great, fresh sushi; pretty inside. Cute area under rennovation."

  • "While they offer standard sushi, we opted for the fusion options. The menu section called Enjoy was fabulous. The yellowtail with jalapeños was one of our favorites. The fusion rolls that we tried were excellent. A bit pricey but what sushi isn't? I would jump at the chance to return."

  • "Still freshest and most creative sushi in NYC. Katie is the best server in NYC!!"

  • "We discovered this restaurant while strolling through the neighborhood, but we would definitely make a special trip to come again. The food was excellent! We loved the crab gyoza and the cod. The waitress and hostess also suggested the octopus salad and red bean fried ice cream, which were great!"

  • "Great food and a quiet part of the Seaport - not touristy! Only down side- the soy sauce was a bit too sweet for us. Great, FRESH sushi"
    Dined on 6/15/2012
  • "Really really good sushi. Nicely divided menu distinguishes between standards and more innovative things. Atmosphere is perfectly fine--nothing exciting, but perfectly nice and comfortable. This is a place I'll go back to, happily, and feel lucky to have found."

  • "I'm relatively new to sushi, but my date really likes it, and so we thought we'd try SuteiShi. It was wonderful -- the staff is very friendly and helpful, the rolls (we sampled several) were all excellent (the Jade roll was particularly good), and we had a great time. My sushi expert / date declared it her new favorite place!"

  • "Good sushi and inventive special dishes like the tuna ravioli. Service is so-so at best. Very conveniently located right smack in the middle of the South Street Seaport area."
    Dined on 5/16/2012
  • "This smal spot serves very good sushi in a great quality. The prices are ok and you get a good price / value. The only thing I was missing is a bigger selection in wine. Very good Japanese beer selection. I'll go again."
    Dined on 5/13/2012
  • "The service was excellent and the food was great! We ordered the tempura, avocado rolls, chicken with ginger teryaki, and these mushroom beef rolls. There was a large group who was being pretty obnoxious. The waiters were very apologetic and made sure we got a table in the second room. I definitely would go back if I lived in New York."

  • "Simply fantastic! Everything! And I mean, everything was perfectly delicious. :-) Thank you for following your dream to have the best sushi in ask New York."

  • "Loved this place. Waitress was ok, she forgot to give my girlfriend and I menus. The water boy paid more attention to our glasses than the waitress did with us. Overall,the food made up for everything. Must try the fried ice cream."

  • "lovely little place on cobblestoned street near Seaport. Service was excellent and very friendly. sushi quality was excellent, as always, though portions definitely small for price. hot appetizers very good as well."

  • "Fun and in a cool area. I was a little disappointed with the portion size for one of the four items we ordered (a special). All the food was really good. The bar has limitations, they mostly have beer and sake."

  • "This is our favorite spot to celebrate a special occasion. Everything on the menu is delicious! Be sure to swing around the corner to Bin 220 to wash down the great sakatinis served here with a flight of wine."
    Dined on 9/24/2011
  • "Easily my favorite sushi place in the city. Sure, it's not in the ultra-high-end class of something like Nobu, but then again it costs a lot less too--not that much more than any generic sushi place, but extraordinarily good every time I go. When it's nice out, they have tables outside with a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge--a great place for a date."
    Dined on 9/9/2011
  • "Excellent food and service. We arrived earlier than planned and they seated us right away. In fact, our table was reserved an hour early. Loved the location, especially as a tourist."
    Dined on 8/18/2011
  • "Bad service. Food as so expensive. We felt cheated by the waitress who insisted in make his choice in our own order. When we complaint, the waitress was gone, and the supervisor went one hundred us$ down. But still was too much for the food we got. I expect you dont get cheated, prives are not clear in menu."
    Dined on 8/12/2011
  • "Ate outside, seating was extremely tight, practically on top of people next to us. ALSO - This is pet friendly!! Dogs tied to the tables. Sushi was excellent but place wasn't as nice as pictures."
    Dined on 8/12/2011
  • "Amazing view, great food, nice ambiance and service. You rarely get this much natural daylight in the city and you don't notice how nice it is till you have it. The restaurant was relatively quiet for a Saturday evening. It feels like a well kept secret."
    Dined on 7/23/2011
  • "Seriously good Sashimi and Tempura was possibly the best that I've ever had (including Japan) shame there wasn't a Tempura dipping sauce served with the Bento Box. Overall, an excellent standard."
