15 East Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
It was amazing to have a meal and celebrate birthday there! Main chef was amazingly kind and fun to teaching us all those fish kinds that we had! Definitely want to visit again. They also provided us complimentary desserts for celebrating birthday with them :) great experience and high quality sushi!
The coat check woman was not happy that we held onto our coats and she gave us the stare down as we waited to be seated. And she kept trotting by our table in an angry way. One of the diners had an engagement ring in his coat so he didn't want to check it and she was so rude about it. Sort of got in the way a bit
I went to have omakase at the sushi bar for the first time while I was visiting NYC. I sat at the sushi bar and received excellent service. Chef Taka was very friendly and informative. He was enthusiastically showing me and telling me about the different fish he was serving me if I was not familiar with it. The presentation of the fish itself was beautiful and prepared carefully. The quality of the fish was very good and I had a great experience for my first time having traditional omakase. My favorite part of the meal was the bonito which has such a deep flavor to it. The uni I was served was from Hokkaido and Maine. The uni were both beautiful in color. He also had uni from Santa Barbara but I did not choose to try this one. I was extremely surprised by the pickled ginger and Anago because I usually dislike both these things. However, the ginger was pickled to be light and refreshing without being overpowering. The anago was very soft and easy to eat. Chef Taka was so kind as to give me a tofu milk dessert that came with a sweet syrup. This experience was definitely one I would recommend to others to try. I especially recommend sitting at the sushi bar and conversing with Chef Taka. The only reason I am not putting 5 stars is because I feel that the quality or the certain preparation for specific types of fish could have been better in comparison to other omakase prices.
