15 East Restaurant
What a wonderful dining experience. The staff was amazing, the ambiance was mellow, with a terrific sound track. The food was sublime. I can't wait to share this gem.
Very delicious food. Always high quality sushi. The toro was very good but the sashimi slices are minuscule! Main reason for the some 4 star ratings. Service was top notch. My waiter was kind and thoughtful. Even noticed my husband was left handed for sushi placement
Best sushi in new york. Great wine list as well
The food hasn’t flavored and so expensive. Low quality
The portion very smaller!!!!
and the service was bad and slowly....
The ambience was so crowded and the music higher
Super good food &super nice staff
Omakase at the sushi bar was exceptional. Excellent service.
Everything but the food was very nice. Unfortunately everything was dry and tasteless.
It was a good restaurant. Food was good, staff was attentive and friendly, almost to a fault. However, I feel that I paid far too much for what I got. The food was simple and yummy, but not worth the high price tag. I understand the whole idea of the restaurant is the Omakase which I didn't get, but even the Omakase would have been far too pricey for ok sushi. I get better sushi in my hometown of Denver.
Amazing food. Overall experience was excellent.
Great food and great service from John and Miguel!
The hot soba soup and risotto are to die for.
Omakase selection was bland and uninspired, could have had this meal at another place for 1/3 of what it costs.
Consistently excellent service and food. Always the best ingredients. The Kumamoto oysters are the best.
Extremely good, high-end Japanese food. Only downside was slight odor of bathroom cleaning fluid upon entering.
My son’s send off to sleep away camp! As always, a wonderful dining experience. We’ve been coming to 15 East since it first opened...it is our Japanese home away from home...thank you! Andrea, Derek and Sam
Great menu and the food was excellent. Had not been before but will be going back
The most delicious Japanese meal I’ve had in a long time!
Loved how especially calm and quiet the noise level and the atmosphere was. It's a definite oasis away from the hustle and bustle for a fancy lunch.
The quality of the fish is superb.
I'm already thinking about visiting again.
I love this restaurant! Whenever my sister is in town we go there for dinner. Never ever had anything but fresh and delicious food. Beautiful presentation and original style. Great wine list. Worth every penny. My sister was celebrating her birthday so they sent out a divine and decadent dessert. What a perfect night.
I’ve been going to 15 East regularly and it remains in my view a gem in the city. This is some of the best sushi you will have in the US and the simplicity and elegance of the atmosphere makes the experience timeliness.
Prices have gone up. Selection is low. Won’t be back
My third time here. Again, impeccable service, beautifully presented, high caliber ingredients, in a serene and comfortable environment.
Again and again simply the best! Superb food and elegant service...
Allow about $300/head for dining. Thats what two of us spent & my guest wasn’t even drinking. I had the house saki. Its good but its expensive for what it is.
15 East is our favorite sushi spot; full stop. It has the freshest fish , prepared with the utmost care, the service is super professional and attentive. It surpasses many other famous sushi places through quality and decency. I highly recommend it.
I travel a lot to Japan and have eaten in a lot of very high-end sushi restaurants. The quality of the fish, the presentation, and the service at 15 East makes it our favorite sushi place in New York (at its price point or even when paying $100 per head more). No other place comes close.
The food is delicious, but it's just so expensive that I ultimately think it isn't worth it.
Not sure it delivers any value proposition and the staff does a poor job helping to understand portion size ("Is this for one or two people" got a shrug and a "depends" reply.
Quality of the fish was incredible. Served slightly more elegantly than what you are used to
Our super favorite place !
Amazing dinner last night at 15 East. The Kumamoto Oysters in Ponzu granita with pickled radish kicked it off nicely followed by the richness and melt in your mouth smoked Berkshire kurobuta. The charcoal grilled gindara was delicious! And of course the sashimi omakase was to die-for, in particular the aburi oh-toro, Sakuramasu and the akamatsu. I am still thinking of how they melted in my mouth! And to cap it - mineoka, milk sesame pudding with kurosato syrup topped with almond tuille. Truly one of the best!
And dining rewards from OpenTable foot part of the bill. Can’t ask for more.
Beautiful restaurant. Good service. Tasting menu quality and taste not in line with price. A very mixed bag. Very fatty and odd tasting sashimi and sushi mixed with delicious options. After first course was inedible and replaced with a delicious tuna tartar, we questioned the waiter about future tasting menu courses as we were considering changing our order. We were told lean and specific options for future courses that we were not given. The egg dish, soup and dessert were delicious. Although the meat in one of our soups was very fatty. Some pieces of sashimi were incredible. The rice was not great and the sushi fell apart when eating. But on balance at $195 per person, the overall experience was very disappointing. There are much better quality restaurants , especially at this price.
Lovely place, super staff but mediocre quality. It’s not bad by any stretch but not worth $200 per person in my humble opinion
did the 15 piece omakase, it is definitely worth every penny! i would definitely come back here again
Very attentive service...
Never disappoints. Food, beverage, service, ambiance and welcome -- all stellar.
UNREAL service. Sushi was great too!
Having greatly enjoyed lunch a couple of months ago at 15 East, I had dinner there for the first time and was delighted with it. So were the others in my party -- one a lover of sushi and the other who doesn't like raw food at all. I had the miso broth, tuna tartare and omikase sushi -- all first rate. Every dish was superbly crafted and delicious. The servers are exceptionally capable, and very attentive without "hovering" or ever intruding. The room is spare, simple and comfortable. We lingered for awhile and did not feel at all rushed. This is a "high end" restaurant in a "low key" way. It's completely unpretentious, but the ingredients, the preparation and the service speak for themselves. Last, but not least, the meal was reasonably priced relative to its quality -- which is not something one can say about many of the city's more celebrated Japanese temples. I'm at a loss as to why they lost their "star". Highly recommended.
I've walked past this place several times without realizing what a gem it was in my new Union Square neighborhood. The food is excellent and the service was perfect. I love the ambiance because it is just the right amount of refined taste with no pretension. I will consider it a special place for awesome sushi and sashimi whenever I have the funds (did I mention it is not a cheap place?). Besides the great Japanese fare you'd expect from a place of this caliber, the oysters, deconstructed seaweed salad board and the omelet were excellent as well...washed it all down with a nice warm saki.
The place is really nice. The food is absolutely amazing! I think is the best sushi I’ve had in NYC yet.
I treated myself to lunch this past Friday, and what a treat this was! As soon as I came in, I was greeted by a very nice hostess, who actually seemed genuinely happy to see me with a smile on her face. The waitstaff patiently answered all my questions even though they were super busy. 15 East has best soba I have ever had in my life, all the fish was super fresh, and the kitchen items were delicious. This place is pricey, but I don't mind paying if the food and service is on point, and 15 East nailed it - I can't wait to bring my Mom when she is in town!
