Non mi sono piaciuti i piatti....locale bello personale accogliente
Too pricey! Food was mediocre at best
Towards the end of dinner, the floor above underwent construction and the noise was so deafening we had to leave.
I used to love coming here as the food is consistently good. And ambiance was lovely. But recently the service has been so disappointing and rude. Front of house is warm and welcoming. And this is completely let down by the serving staff who do not smile, roll their eyes when you ask for something and whizz by when you’re waving your arm for attention. What a shame as the food is delicious and fresh. Hats off to the chef but boo to the servers. And it’s gotten expensive. Won’t be back for a while.
The right choice
Service and food felt a bit underwhelming in respect to the space, and expectations
Kaiseki dishes were completely lackluster and insubstantial. Service was okay outside of having to wait 20mins for seating despite being on time. Food was served at the wrong temperature and tasteless. Although a regular customer in the past, I will not be returning to En.
Service equally amazing
Just sublime as always: from the homemade tofu to the Kyoto small dishes to the rice clay pots to the sashimi.
The restaurant was supposed to open at 530. No one was there and they did not seat us till 545. At 6 I told the hostess we had a show and needed to order. She said right away but nobody came. So we paid for our one drink we got from bar while waiting and left. The hostess and waitress were awful
Had a table booked for 3ppl for 2:15pm. Two of us arrived at 2:10pm. We’re seated for 2:17pm only to be told the kitchen closed at 2:25pm. Why they’d take the reservation no one knows. Such bad unapologetic service. We’d to leave and find a new restaurant that would actually serve us food.
I have loved En since it opened ! Spent at least 2 of my Birthdays there and keep loving it !
Been coming here for years. Fabulous setting and decent food. The staff can be quite haughty and not very obliging. The food is ok but not as amazing as the descriptions or setting would suggest. Definitely the most impressive thing about this place is the interior design (and the sake list!)
Excellent tasting menu and special cocktails. Generous portions and beautifully presented. Perfect for a special occasion.
my wife and I eat out often and enjoy varied, interesting menus and dishes:
came on the recommendation of friends;
this restaurant is a beautiful setting, spacious and well appointed:
the service from beginning to end was impeccable:
ingredients were very fresh;
presentation varied and truly interesting
preparations were rather bland, all fish tasted the same;
as the night went on, noise level became very loud to the point of being irritating;
we had two of the three special menus, they were both disappointing;
too expensive for the quality of the food;
will not recommend or return
there are much more appropriately priced options in New York;
EN was an exceptional experience. The ambiance, service and food were all outstanding and we could not have asked for a better dining experience. Highly recommend this restaurant
Did the $80 tasting menu with the $45 sake and shochu pairing on Saturday night. The mixed reviews of En make sense; the food is excellent and the portions are appropriate for the price. Interesting vegetable-based first course with japanese mushrooms and radish in a ponzu-like sauce, fried tofu and seaweed in a shichimi togarashi spice soy, and kabocha with tofu sauce. The next course was the only disappointment- 6 pieces of sashimi, two solid salmon, two boring lean tuna, and two yellowtail that was so lean and tough it could have been fluke. The miso cod, fresh tofu, and stone-grilled chicken that followed made up for the disappointing fish. The sake pairings were extremely small servings, but the quality and diversity were satisfactory. The service was downright abysmal. Poor timing, a wildly confusing parade of multiple waiters, bussboys, and attendants meant that after an initial check-in, our waiter was nowhere to be seen even when we physically got up to try to get our bill. Timing of dishes was completely off, with some coming before we'd finished the most recent course, and one taking more than 15 minutes to arrive while we sat and stared at the giant branch sculpture in the middle of the dining room. Can't decide if we'll try again at the sushi bar or a table, or if the service issues make this $160/pp meal not worth the cost.
I don't usually write reviews, but this time I just had to - such a disappointment and a waste of good money. The menu was so exhausting we decided to go with the tasting menu - it was extremely disappointing. Not even one dish was good. A couple we couldn't even finish... almost everything came out cold as if it was just taken out from the fridge and just put on our table. Service was ok, but no wonder - restaurant was half empty. Although the waiter didn't even care that half of the dishes was almost untouched..
Not going to return for sure.
Absolutely loved dining at En Japanese Brasserie! Creative, extensive and well balanced menu with attention to detail and flavor. Great atmosphere with ample space (not crowded sitting ontop of other tables). Attentive waitstaff. Huge sake selection to sample from too! We couldn't have been happier with our first visit.
