Wonderful staff. From the managers to Cris the waitress and Andrew the bar tender. This place is a perfect 10. Michelin worthy. One star at the very least.
We were incredibly disappointed. The noise issues were not fixed in the renovation (I visited prior). The kitchen essentially forgot about all other tables because they had some sort of VIP table which was ordering large, off-menu items. There was a 40-45 minute gap in between receiving our starters and our entreees. Of course, these issues could’ve been excused if the food was really great - it was not. Cold food, lack of flavor, not inventive in any way. I can not stress enough how disappointing this experience was in every way.
Super cocktails, superb food, great waitstaff, whats more to say?
My third visit. First was terrific; second was mundane. This was pretty good. I did not much care for the nduja, though the home baked sourdough was great. (To be fair the waiter offered to substitute something else.) Roast pork was delicious; wines by the glass were good. Not a great value but you can get a good meal.
This place is a great place for a nice quiet dinner for two. Food is delish and sauces/spices are creative and very tasty.
Inventive dishes plated and served well. The staff was well-trained and pleasantly professional.
Amazing meal, great service and great space! We were wowed and surprised by all three.
Food was amazing. Our server was good and a very nice guy he just got overwhelmed. We will be back.
Delish! The food was exceptional from start to finish!
This restaurant is vastly disappointing. When we arrived 12 minutes late for our reservation, they told me that we had exceeded the grace period for the reservation, and they were not sure they could seat us. No problem, but they should have explicitly stated their policy on the reservation page on Open Table. We wound up getting two seats at the bar. We ordered the pasta sampler. The first two pasta dishes were barely lukewarm, so we sent the the cacio e pepe back to the kitchen. It took 20 minutes for us to get the hot pasta back. It was not at all what I expected, and the sauce was slightly gelatinous, which led me to believe that a thickening agent had been used. Odd. The duck orecchiette was overpowered by smoke flavor and salt. Desert was a slice of pie flavored with Campari, which just did not deliver, and then an "ice cream sandwich" in the style of a large macaron. Underwhelmed. Save your money, this was one of the most disappointing meals I have had in years.
The food is excellent and creative. It's best to order several dishes and share with the group to experience the full range of flavors. It's a bit crowded and noisy but not obnoxiously so. The staff is friendlier than you'd expect at a trendy spot. I've been for both dinner and lunch and both were great.
Can’t get a cup of regular coffee. Food was good, but nothing special.
Food options are varied and the choices we made were outstanding. The wine list selection selection is well thought out. Our server was efficient and very helpful with our questions. Will return soon
Outstanding dinner, lobster entree a must along with sicilian red wine contrada
Friendly staff but slow service and average food for a Momofuku
We made a reservation for two thru OpenTable, but when we arrived they said there would be a "short wait". We were finally seated 30 mins. later in a noisy, dense area. The waiter strongly pushed the Turbot and lobster, and we felt pressured. The wine was good, but more than 100% marked up over prices in local stores. First dish -- endive -- fantastic. Second dish, Wagyu beef, a let-down. The lobster on pasta tasted great with 1st few bites, but soon became very tiring, with tomato & hot chili overhwleming all. We felt we were forcing ourselves to eat. Dinner for 2 = $280.00 NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!
Had the pasta tasting and it was great. Wonderful service and great food.
Very special! Amazing flavours. Make sure to get the Romaine salad.
We got the Cacio e pepe and it was AMAZING. the cheese to pepper ratio was on point and i would come back to nishi JUST to have this dish alone. The service was also very good, fast, attentive but not too much that it gets annoying. Would recommend.
Initial table was poor for 3 people but we were moved promptly.
I brought my parents who were in town—they LOVE david chang from his netflix series so it was a treat. it was a little too loud for them (they’re in their 60s, and my mom has a hearing problem. dad is just old) The food was delicious and accessible enough, but also interesting enough. Also generous portion sizes for the kind of restaurant it is. I was surprised by the pasta (in a good way!)
Service was a little slow though, but attentive nonetheless. Overall would visit again!
Such a disappointment! I was told the place was great, but this must have been a long time ago.
Loud heavy metal is not exactly the kind of music one expects for sunday lunch. Service was slow, although the place was half empty. Drinks were served long after food had come. We couldn't finish the antipasti - too salty, too much vinegar, boring.
This was one of the best true hospitality experiences I have had. Thank you Erica and Nishi team. You are first class and top notch.
Always great and creative food choices. It is an ideal restaurant for sharing dishes.
We have eaten and enjoyed our meals here in the past. But sadly, last night’s meal was inconsistent and we feel like we overspent for not great food. The wait staff are very personable and the location is easy. But this Chelsea based restaurant’s menu feels like it’s ignored (especially the entrees) compared to the other restaurants in this fine group.
Delicious place for lunch, loved the Impossible Burger and pickled vegetables. Good balance for a group with vegetarians and meat eaters.
Food was good and service was great but it’s way overpriced even for a manhattan restaurant.
Visit from Miami
Dinner at Nishi was incredible. We had the Montauk scallop, Bucatini with white truffles, and the roast pork which all were spectacular. We also had the penicillin cocktail which was sweet, gingery and frothy - really great; and the old fashioned which was also good.
Birthday! So fun and delicious.
The quintessential cool neighborhood restaurant that has great service and amazing foods at affordable prices.
The wine was great. Tuna fish was delicious but nothing unique. Pasta with blue crab a bit tasteless. I was disappointed.
I picked this restaurant for my boyfriends birthday and we were so disappointed. We had the pasta tasting menu and wine flight which I thought would be perfect for a special occasion. It was terrible value for money. 3/6 of the dishes were actually awful (the first pasta dish, and two desserts) and the other three were ok but the portion sizes were too small. Numerous times the wine arrived after we received the plate of food and half the time we didn’t have cutlery so the food went cold as we tried to get hold of the waitress for the wine and a fork. The tables either side of us also received complimentary focaccia whereas we were persuaded in to buying a $20 focaccia starter as we were told the tasting menu wouldn’t be enough! I never complain about restaurants but this was really expensive and such a disappointment. The tables next to us thought exactly the same. Out of the thousands of restaurants in New York I would not recommend eating here. For reference the meal cost $275 including a very small tip, it makes me so upset thinking what a waste of money it was!!
This was a fabulous experience. Service was exceptional food was great creative with nuances that we valued overall. The only detractor was the fact that we were seated in front of the door on a very cold night and no one noticed that the AC was on until we pointed it out to the manager. Otherwise it was perfect.
Boring food. Host was extremely nice, but waiter seemed annoyed by us. Lackluster for the price.
Good food, good service. Bit noisy. We had BBQ ribs, they almost melted in your mouth...
BOUGY overpriced BS
Service was terrible. Waiter was rude and made us feel uncomfortable. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this. Food was delicious!
Excellent food! The pasta and tuna were both superb!
