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.

    Just a phenomenal, non-traditional (for US) Japanese spot with so much more than sushi/sashimi. A lovely interior design, and specially the central garden. The O-Banzai, tofu and garlic shiso rice are our favorites.

    The food is outstanding. The miso marinated cod is the best I have ever had, and I always order it when it’s on the menu in any Japanese restaurant. We also had tempura and sushi roll and tuna steak on rice. Everything was excellent. But everything was in very small portions. The service is very good as well and the decor quite sophisticated. I think they could make the portions a little bit bigger or the price a bit lower. I feel that 37$ for the cod would be fair if there were at least some accompanying vegetables. It was instead just 3 small pieces of fish. Anyway as I said it was delicious and I would certainly recommend it.

    The vegan food was pretty average for the price - the tofu was delicious, as were all the components with mushrooms. But everything else was sort of just marginal. The tempura was tasty.

    We arrive 10 minutes before the place open and was told by the host to have a drink At the bar as we wait get seated. When we walked to the bar the manager gave us an attitude and told us “we are not open until 5:30” and I explained to him that we were told we can have a drink in the mean time. He gave me this rude stare and said “ we are not open”. That was the first thing. The 2nd thing was waiter being annoyed when we said we wanted dessert drinks in the beginning of the pre fix. Then he gave us another attitude when we questioned things that got charge twice on the bill…. I’m never coming back here again. Service is terrible but the food is good

    Our schedules when traveling are planned based on restaurants reservations. If for some reason I had to repeat this restaurant in the 4 days I’m spending in NYC for the first time, I wouldn’t complain. Don’t miss the MISO COD. We also had the urchin sushi, A5 Miyazaki wagyu, tuna roll which were also amazing. Of course there were good but I wouldn’t order the fried shrimp again. Desserts deserve to give a try. I ordered panna cotta. Is like a matcha pudding (im not a huge fan of matcha but this was incredible). My husband had the ice cream. Very romantic place with good ambience.

    This was a preview of what the summer kaiseki menu at EN might look like. It was paired with wines from Wild Arc Farm in New York state (though in the future it will be paired with mostly sake). I got to meet the wine maker! A lovely reintroduction to kaiseki after months of waiting.

    Call me entitled, but I am disappointed that I made a reservation noting special occasion (birthday), yet not a service staff acknowledged this to me from start to finish. This is a good restaurant, but not a good option for special occasions because the restaurant does not care.

    I’ve been to En for over 10 years now but never experienced upsell this hard. I understand restaurants suffered during the pandemic but suggesting everything expensive to get on the menu was bit much. Problem with En is even if you order from every category, you still leave the place hungry (bill for 4 was $460 before tip)

    Absolute disappointment. We had a table for three and all of us got the $145 per head Komorebi. From the first dish to the seventh, we were simply confused. Oyster was one of the worst oysters we have had - dry and not fresh. The steamed & cooled veggies felt like they were bought from trader joes and took them a 3 minutes to prepare. The lobster was extremely deep fried. The wagyu did not taste like wagyu but tasted more like the fatty part of an avg ribeye. The last dish, mushroom with rice, simply felt microwaved. The only good thing about the EN was their choice of sakes. But to be honest, that did not make up for the disappointing quality of food. I wish i could say the service was good but unfortunately we had to wait 40 minutes for our table. Complete waste of time and money. Final comment: If I had the option of having this food for free vs. having shake shack at full price, i pick the latter 100% of the time.

    best friend date! hadn’t seen my best friend in a long time and wanted to catch up somewhere special. we both have dietary restrictions due to allergies and the service made us feel right at home, not like nuisances. everyone was super friendly and helpful and warm, even though the restaurant is extremely beautiful and had the potential to be very sceney. So many different offerings in every sense: the thoughtfulness and effort put into the quality of the food, crafting of the menu, and diversity in spaces welcomed so many different walks of life and every kind of gathering in a beautiful and warm setting. I really love this place it’s become my new favorite restaurant! Obviously drink offerings are amazing too. Service is so sweet and accommodating and educated. Just go here honestly but don’t make me wait in line to eat otherwise I’ll be upset about my 5 star review :) Love to bring my friends and family here as much as possible in the future to have any chance to eat :)
