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.

    Went for dinner, found the wait staff to be almost annoyed at any request, food was mediocre at best and over priced. Also liquor completely over priced, got roped into $140 bottle of sake when all I wanted was a glass of sake. Lastly, it was loud as could be couldn’t hear yourself think

    Amazing meal! The aesthetic and ambience in the lounge area was soothing in the winter rainy weather. The food was delicious! Love the yuzu carpaccio, the tuna bowl the with butter soy dressing, and the clay pot rice with truffle! The soba pudding was also unique in flavors. 10/10 would come back to nyc just to eat here again!

    Servers were very busy, but took longer than expected to get order taken at counter seats. Once I received service food was very good and was brought out in a timely manner. Overall the kaiseki was very good and I would come back again. Was a bit on the expensive side.

    Our reservation was at 20.15 and we were given a table at 20.54. after more than half an hour they offered us a room upstairs which was tiny and with a coffee table instead of a dining table. They did no effort to make you believe that they want to apologize.

    None of the things I ordered yesterday were impressive, especially for the price point. The oyster rice pot was disgusting, felt like there was absolutely no seasoning and the oysters were canned. The veggie tempura was unimpressive. The carpaccio was overdressed, with a type of coleslaw underneath. The only redemption of the meal was the cod and the cocktail I had.

    This was my second time at this restaurant and I have decided also my last. The food is simply unreasonably expensive, and this time quality was also questionable. The servers are too intrusive possibly because there are too many of them.
