EN Japanese Brasserie
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.

Great food. Fantastic service. Highly recommend.
Fabulous experience, thank you for your service and delicious food !
Great location and excellent food. Expensive. Worth it for a special occasion or date.
Couldn’t wait to get back here for indoor dining! Same great quality and service we remember from 2019(!!), menu was slimmed down quite a bit though. May be temporary as they’re just reopening but still a great experience all around!
Amazing! Food and service was impeccable.
Had dinner on Sunday night, under a heat lamp. The setting was nice––our table was situated between two plants––and the lamp kept us warm. Every dish was prepared to perfection, and the service was aces. The table was sanitized before we sat down, and we were offered hand sanitizer. Delicious food in a clean and warm setting, with an attentive waitstaff.
As always the food was amazing and service was impeccable. Thank you!
Service was amazing . Knowing that NYC restaurants are closing soon due to covid . I wanted my last meal to be spectacular and this sure didn’t disappoint . I will be dreaming about my meal for months to come and will be praying that the staff is able to survive the next few months and that the restaurant will reopen one day
Social distancing was well maintained, the service was wonderful and the food was delicious.
Always the best! Everything is delicious
The owner should realize that the restaurant has lost two customers because you and vendors bothered us a lot during the lunch time and did not listen to our complaints sooner.
What the owner needed to do was not to let her staff apologize us and offer a free desert. First and foremost, the owner herself had to COME TO OUR TABLE and apologize us directly with her own words.
Food was amazing and very authentic!
It felt so good to be back after covid months away!
Wow! Simply great authentic Japanese food in a very understated environment with great service. Their Japanese breakfasts cannot be missed.
I really enjoyed the entire meal . The food and service and ambience was fantastic !
Amazing food and thoughtful service!! Can’t wait to go back.
Everything was great but I called specifically to request a candle in the dessert for the other person in my party’s birthday and was assured that they would take care of the request. I ordered two desserts and neither of them had a candle or anything signifying that the occasion was for a birthday which was a bummer.
Great good and ambiance. The seaweed and macha went well on a cold day. Outdoor seating is lovely under the umbrellas. Fresh fresh fresh fish.
NO FLAVOR - Expensive for no reason - Terrible Experience - Would not go back - WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Incredible place to go for weekend brunch (other meals too). The food is extremely flavorful, filling and wonderful presentation. It is now on my go-to list of places to eat.
Great experience eating here. All safety measures and social distancing was followed during the pandemic. Really good vegetarian options in the five course pre fixe option. Food was fantastic.
Impeccable service. Staff could not have been more attentive and kind. Plates were perfectly timed and delicious.
Fantastic food, service, and overall experience. I will definitely be back!
The service was horrendous. Waiters were impossible to understand and had no recommendations on food or wine. For this price point, it should be a must.
The food was great. I love the brunch menu. I haven't had Omurice in a long time so it was great to have again.
Enjoyed having dinner here. Unfortunately they do not serve nigiri Sushi. However, the Sashimi is excellent and the other dishes show the depth of this restaurant
Very overpriced for mediocre food. Uni had no flavor, fried chicken was soggy. The other stuff was not memorable. I love tofu and hated it there. Somehow we spent 400 dollars and left hungry and unsatisfied. Pretty restaurant, nice location, nice vibe, nice outdoor setup, the actual sushi seemed fresh.
Pushy waiter who spoke poor English to the point I could not understand him
A great food presentation and delicious food. Bento boxes were well priced with a nice variety of selection. But the service was slow due to a lack of servers or the kitchen might be at limited capacity. Either way, they need to reduce the wait time to order from sitting down to getting the food.
Overall, I recommend the restaurant.
Wine list was not updated - only one type of white & red each was available, no sake, disappointing. Waiter wasn’t knowledgeable about availability of things.
Have loved EN but last experience was reason for concern. Service was inattentive, often confused. Took about 30 minutes for half of our drink order to arrive. Food was ok but really hard to get past the poor service and insane wait times.
Maybe it was just a case of the Monday's? Hope so because I love EN and it was always solid. But when dinner out these days is a cause for celebration- you want it to be awesome.
See Yelp review...
Food was absolutely amazing, but some of the most bizarre service ever. Waiters almost seemed like they were on drugs, brought one person their entire three course meal before they even brought appetizers to the rest of us
We have four different sushi rolls olus the miso soup and the food was amazing!!!
Service was a little bit slow, but the food was great and the outdoor dining experience was lovely.
I am an assiduous client, have made big paries and dinners and go as often as possible.
I was there on dinner on Saturday with my daughter, the wind was so strong that we could hardly sit still. I asked the hostess if they could change us to the tables on Hudson street which had no wind coming from the river. They never offered any available table. Ee had to rush to eat our food and leave. To my suprise, there where more than three empty tables when I left. I was tremendously disappointed by the lack of sensibility and care.
Great food, food service, a little pricey.
Great food. Good service. Love the sashimi and black cod
The food was great and our waiter was attentive but the food all came out so quickly that we were rushing to eat and didn't get to thoroughly enjoy the food. The table was also cleaned while we were still eating which wasn't great.
Came to support my favorite Japanese restaurant in the WV and see the old staff!!!
I would come here for lunch almost 3x a week and dinner atleast 1x every week Pre-covid. While the food and service was great, I was sad not to see anyone I knew. It seems the managers and staff are all new (nice people) but I miss the old crew. Hope they are all good and that our paths cross again.
