Experience Japanese dining in a beautiful, authentic Japanese restaurant located in the West Village of Manhattan. We offer the rich traditions of Japanese cooking with modern yet relaxed style of dining centered around a procession of small plates.


We adhere to the fundamentals of Japanese cooking: respecting the ingredients and their natural flavors, cooking in the moment, and letting the ingredients speak for themselves. We have created an extensive menu, featuring dishes as fresh tofu (prepared six times a night), saikyo miso black cod, stone grilled Washugyu and Wagyu steaks, an assortment of sashimi and sushi rolls and three signature EN Kaiseki tasting menus. To compliment your dining experience, we have developed a list of over 80 sakes and 36 shochus as well as carefully crafted signature cocktails and wine list. Polish your meal off with a choice from 60 Japanese whiskies, a lineup that is hard to beat.

Ce n est plus le même restaurant que j ai fréquenté pendant plusieurs années.. nourriture extrêmement quelconque sans cette touche japonaise.. riz insipide .
L expresso à 8$ (avant taxe et tip).. est une véritable arnaque..

It’s overpriced for such small portions. I ordered roasted short ribs and it was very sticky.... yes, super sticky. My friend and I had to purposely ate very slowly to avoid finishing our dinner in 45 min. The service on the other hand was very good. That’s about it...

Gorgeous soaring space with so many beautiful artistic details . The food is authentically Japanese. The soba noodles with duck is a dish I get every time I eat here . The cocktails are excellent . The deserts are amazing

This was an okay restaurant. The flavors, the food were just "meh" for the most part. Beautiful building and service was very good.

Requested a table for two in the main dining area with our reservation, but was informed upon arrival that tables for two were only offered in the outside anti-room dining area. Lighting was extremely dim in this area, so we used our phones to read the menu. Food was excellent, but we could barely see it. Portions were small prices were high. This was our second visit, and probably our last.

Amazing omakase. Very authentic, inventive and fresh. If you're looking for standard, American-style Japanese, don't come here. It's too good for that.

Excellent service. Restaurant decor is outstanding as well. Did not expect the whole experience to be so good.

And they also have a large selection of vegan dishes, including an entire vegan omakase, which my friend greatly appreciated.

Seems no corners were cut. Will definitely come back.

Most of my friends are not interested in places that are so upscale / expensive / pretentious. They want to have good food, reasonable ambiance, and good company, without all the hype.

Always wonderful, En was also able to move us smoothly through their multi-course prix fixe in time for us to make the performance we were seeing. It was fantastic! We will return to do it again when we can do it at a more relaxed pace.
