One of the best sushi restaurants in NYC. The fresh sushi is delicious.

Terrible meal, ranks as the worst, my worst this year. 185 dollars per person down the drain. I used to like this place, I guess it is lacking an oversight from owners. Hands down most tasteless sushi I’ve ever had.

We had a great time at 15 east. The fishes were tasty and the uni from Japan was incredible. I did not think the non-fishes though were to the level that the price of food warrants. Next time I take the omakze, I will only ask for the fishes and uni. my favorite was the Achi and the eel. Incredible.

Unfortunately what I have come to expect of traditional Omakase dinging is far from what takes place when ordering this way at 15 East.

Instead of being served individual courses with specific instructions of how to enjoy each you are served two plates of 8 to 10 pieces with a quick rundown of what’s on the plate and which should not be sauced.

The service was good and the ambiance is fine but 2 Omakase orders an appetizer and a warm entree should not be $400+ with no alcohol and not even close to an authentic experience.

Nothing special for the value as it is in NyC. The experience was unpleasant for fine dining as felt rushed to change tables by the team. Would not return nor recommend as neither the value nor the cuisine were memorable .

Second time unlucky. Had eaten here once and had outstanding sushi. This time not so much. Began with two small plates, octopus and sea weed assortment. Both disappointing. But the real problem was the sushi. We had the sushi sashimi combo. 16 pieces for$110 is ok if everything is a joy to put in your mouth. Nothing was. Sashimi stingy portions and just ok. Sushi also just ok. A major disappointment

It’s my second time here. Once with 4 friends and another just with one. It’s very good but I guess just not super exciting especially for the price around $90 per person. We ordered the wagyu gyoza and they were good and the tempura was good too. Sushi also good. Basically good food but the space has no vibe at all, very basic and uninspired. Probably won’t be back but not because of the food.

I am holding this place to a different standard due to the high price and reputation. So with that said, for the price there are many better options. the presentation of omakasi was poor and the fish was pretty good not amazing. The hostess was very pleasant and the best part of the experience.

Mediocre food. Overpriced. Terrible service, rude and no regard for customers. Went their for dinner on Friday night and shortly after I left I realized I had left my phone at the table and went back to get it and the hostess and manager refused to get my phone from the table because they said they did not want to bother the people that were seated at the table and told me to come back the next day. We spent a few hundred dollars for dinner and yet they treated me very badly. will never go back and would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

No restaurant should be judged on the Amateur Night of Valentine’s Day. But 15 East has mastered the drill, removing guesswork with a stellar prix fixe six-course tasting menu. No misses, and lots of hits.

We'd been wanting to try 15 East for a while, based on the generally excellent reviews, and finally got around to it. We had the larger sashimi platter, and the variety and quality of the fish were wonderful. I was impressed that there were three different varieties of uni available, and several other fish that are generally not offered at most Japanese restaurants. Everything about our meal was excellent, and we'll surely return soon

I had eaten at the restaurant before but never at the Omakase sushi bar. The hostess called me after I booked a table and told me the sushi bar option opened and I was happy to try this style of dining. The chef, sommelier and waiter were attentive and gave suggestions commensurate with our tastes-they brought us extra ginger and never pressured us to order more alcohol then we wished to order. The fish was superb-as was the sushi chef.

Of course the Omakase can be pricey and it was but for this one time it was well worth it.... a memorable dining experience

Clean, beautiful sushi and sashimi, in a quiet, cushy environment. The more you tell the staff about your preferences, the better your meal and experience will be. The medium tuna, not regular or fatty, is sublime, Arctic char, scallops, uni, and more pure silk. Just sublime. Coconut lime ice cream is a terrific finish,

Everything was excellent food-wise as was the service but they rushed us out after the chef’s tasting menu. I was with two friends from Europe who thought that was uncouth. Considering the price point, I don’t completely disagree. The tasting menu is necessarily a lengthy meal, so they should stagger reservations to accommodate.

Solid spot!! The sushi and all the meals are fresh you can taste and feel the quality! Some interesting combos on the menu too and unique entree’s. Def recommend if you like sushi in particular their hamachi app and the scallops entree. Dessert can be avoided here though.
