Unfortunately the owners allowed the liquor license to expire which has turned us away for the last could of months. You are also not allowed to bring your own bottle (wine). The whole vibe of the place is significantly different now. Hopefully everything will be back up to par when we visit again.

Hearty miso soup with lots of mushrooms and tofu was a great twist on the more usual higher broth content. Excellent service when engaged, but at times somewhat inattentive to whether something was needed like a drink refill.

Something has happened, and the experience we had was absolutely not memorable. Perhaps because of the holiday, the staffing was not up to par, and the chef was off enjoying Memorial Day elsewhere. But to those who wanted to enjoy the traditionally excellent SEI cuisine, there was disappointment to go around.. I hope this was a one-off hiccup

Because we had theater tickets, we stayed, not wanting to risk missing dinner. It would have been better customer service if we had been informed before we made our reservation.

The staff went to great lengths to accommodate my specific seating requests. The tables are well spaced, the noise level is perfectly reasonable, the staff are attentive but not intrusive, and the specialty sushi rolls are unforgettable. Spent 2.5 hours over dinner here on a first date and could not have asked for a better place or experience.

Too loud to have a conversation without a raised voice. Service was mediocre at best. Had to flag down the waiter multiple times to get my water refilled.

We walked in and were seated as I made the reservation and the host was most gracious. Our waiter took the time to ensure we knew the specials for the day and to answer our questions about the menu. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Penn Quarter area. We were in/out in time to not only have a cocktail in the theater lounge but to be in our seats and ready to go for the 1930 curtain....can't wait to go back again in the future.

They go above and beyond with service - for instance, we had a party of 6 and paid the bill and the manager tracked us down on the street and told us gratuity was included - so we could remove the extra tip of the check. Not many places would do that. Highly recommend.

I was disappointed with my shrimp burgers which i have been eating for sometime now. It was not good at all. It was rubbery/chewy and not as crispy. The lunch took along time to be served. The waiter was great!

The waiter / waitress are friendly. But the food is taste normal and the portion are weight too small(I’m a girl) we had to find another restaurant after this however we alrdy spent 130 usd there! And we didn’t order any expensive fish or meat, Norma food expensive price and super small portion. Others are 10 out of 10.

The only downside would be that the restaurant was quite loud but that shows it was a busy, energetic night. Luckily we had a table on the wall which gave us a bit of privacy as a group of two. I would definitely recommend to others.

We ordered the salmon truffle nigiri and the Hamachi with fried ginger/ smoked.... They were out of this world!! Also loved the poke roll! The kids loved the homemade crushed strawberry soda. Then to our delight, our lovely server surprised us with two bday cakes for the boys and a lovely ginger sangria for me!!! Thank you for a wonderful treat!!!
