Hands down the best sushi I’ve had. And I tried a lot of sushi since it’s my favorite food.

Service was attentive but a bit awkward. Some of the sashimi was fantastic while some were very mediocre. Overall a pleasant experience but definitely not worth the price for what you get.

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.

They have the best sushi and gyoza I’ve ever had in NY.

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

THis is the best sushi restaurant in NYC. Period. The Sommelier knows sake like no other place in the USA. My wife and I are in love with this restaurant and love coming back every 2 weeks

Definitely not worth the price paid for sushi omakase. You'll get much better food and better selection of fish at other Japanese restaurants. Will not recommend this place.

Restaurant did not honor a birthday special occasion in terms of table location. Poor hostess and overall management of the evening.

I love the lobster risotto! Strongly recommended!
The setting is chic.

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
