What Insiders Are Saying
Sen Sakana is Peruvian-Japanese place in Midtown that might be good for a business lunch, although you don't really have to spend your money here.
Just came back from The trip from Peru and I was very impressed how this place offers its Nikkei food to New Yorkers. As a Japanese-New Yorker, I finally found the true meaning of fusion food.
Another great dinner! Glad this is around the corner from my office.
good food and the quality of the fish was very good
noise level too high for my personal liking
this is a repeater and we will return
The food is consistently amazing — I have been there several times. The beer selection is outstanding. The place is a bit too noisy for my taste — the noise does not come from the guests, but from unnecessarily loud music.
Very good service by a lady who knows her job very well
absolutely outstanding service, thoughtful and attentive.
All around great experience. Superb food and service
Delicious sushi & great service!
Awful service, the worst. The food was good, when we finally got what we ordered.
Everything was amazing.
Sen Sakana started off great w. an innovative apps & the skewers were great, but the rest of the meal fell flat. The salmon was slightly under-cooked & fine tasting - nothing too special. We got a spicy scallop roll & nothing about it tasted like scallop. The desserts were fine too - nothing exceptional. The ice cream was a bit icy & the tres leches cake was more like a brownie than the liquidy cake part of tres leches that we enjoy. Overall, everything was fine.
The service though was the most disappointing part. It took a while to get our server to place an order/drinks. The food actually took long enough where they offered us a free glass of wine each. Greatly appreciated of course, but still doesn't fully make up. The issue wasn't so much that it took a while, but that our server didn't feel attentive to us at all. After placing our order, we actually asked to add a side & he completely forgot & never brought it.
We went post Lion King matinee with a party of 12: 8 adults and 4 children aged 2-7. We were very well taken care of and the staff was professional and accommodating. Love this place!
My husband and I got a coupon to try out this restaurant. Didn't know what to expect but ended up enjoying it very much. The environment was cozy, great vibe and a great place to hang out at the bar in the front. It's quiet enough you can have a conversation without yelling. The food was outstanding, tasty and unique. Staff was friendly and attentive. Great service! Highly recommended this place. Will definitely go back again.
Went to Sen Sakana w/travelzoo voucher for dinner w/nephew. We had drinks during happy hour. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and made good recommendations as we wanted a little bit of everything. We really enjoyed the edamame, gyoza, salmon ceviche and washu beef tiradito. Excellent ambiance, service and decor. Thank you all for a wonderful evening!
We came here for our anniversary and had a lovely meal. Inventive menu, well executed.
Excellent restaurant with a very wonderful
menu and superb service. Highly recommend it.
Lovely culinary experience! The service was superb and Chef Mina is amazing! Would recommend to everyone.
The food was outstanding and the service was phenomenal. I will be dreaming about the hot shrimp appetizer for days- it was fantastic. I’m looking forward to going back!
We all decided to have/share small plates, tapas and few entrees for our table on that night. Our friendly and attentive server also recommended his favor at this establishment to us. Excellent food and services all around start from the front hostess, the bar, and the manager.
The atmosphere and food were outstanding, Although we had very good service, whereby they kept filling up our water and clearing our dirty plates, it seemed that every once in a while the server go lost and he did not return to the table as much as possible.
A different eating experience with the Japanese/Peruvian combo delivering new and unusual combinations and flavors. Attentive and knowledgeable servers which is a good thing since the menu can be somewhat complicated to navigate. One of my favorite Midtown stops.
Wonderful Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine brought to midtown and served by attentive staff.
Service was great, food was fast. We were so disappointed! It was not fine dining yet portions were less than tapas. And, super ordinary. I guess i expected more. Their makis were honestly seriously no better than my local chinese delivery. :( the empanadas were over-fried black, dripping in oil....soaking in oil that the paper was so wet and the empanada so mushy. I cringed for them during dinner. Portions were not even generous....could barely see a glimpse of my fish in the makis....or the chicken in my husband’s rice bowl. Such a sorry bday dinner for mu husband.
Such mediocre sushi. Perhaps their cooked food is better, but this was truly the worst sushi I've eaten in a long time.
Not the well known traditional Japanese cuisine but with the twist!!!!! Spectacular, amazing and mind blowing!!!!
The perfect pretheatre lunch. Great service, serene ambience, and delicious healthy meal. Definitely going back.
The Peruvian-inspired dishes are much better than the Japanese variants. It is a great ambiance for a date but was expecting the food to be even more creative.
This was an interesting and creative blend of two cultures. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. I appreciated the two glasses on champagne on the house for our wedding anniversary. It was a thoughtful surprise.
No Tipping restaurant which makes it a great location.
Sen Sakana’s Creative Peruvian - Japanese food is amazing. I have been there for business and with friends and it never disappoints. The ceviche is amazing, the noodle combinations are delicious and the sushi rolls absolutely fabulous. Definitely worth checking out.
Been here three times now. Food is outstanding. Salmon belly entree was a standout. As was the tofu/avocado/ikura appetizer. Great grilled skewers as well. Price was extremely reasonable for NYC. Service was a bit spotty on the most recent visit. It took 10-15 mins for a waiter to notice me, even though restaurant wasn’t that busy at 6 pm. Tips are built in to the prices and they do a bit of a team wait service, so that is the likely culprit. Still uncertain whether I’m a fan of the no tip business model. I guess the devil is in the execution. Regardless, I will keep coming back regularly for the food.
I've read about Sen Sakana for some time before it opened. Since I live and work in Brooklyn, I don't often find myself in midtown. On this day, however, I was meeting a friend based in Queens and Sen Sakana was perfected located midway between us. More to the point, both my friend and I are Latina and eager to try Japanese/Peruvian fare. My friend had the quinoa chaufa, and I had the salmon ceviche and ton katsu--we were both delighted with our choices. We especially appreciated the dramatic presentation of the warm hand towels offered at the beginning of the meal. The staff was unfailing friendly and vigilant. Highly recommended for friendly get-togethers and/or business expense meals and/or pre-theatre dining.
Food was delicious and service was amazing. Will defiantly be coming back
Unique and delicious. Service was great with even a great recommendation on wine.
Outstanding food and service!! Delicious.
Decent food but a lot of better options for Japanese. Still disorganized after about a year. Seems like they just opened.
The restaurant is lovely and quiet which is such a nice change. Our waiter was very helpful in
exploring the interesting menu and the food we selected was delicious and nicely presented.
We were there post theater and early so even quieter and so nice. We shall return and recommend it
Dining area seemed a bit too lively to have a quiet conversation but the front part only had high chairs and counter - I prefer regular table setting. Food and service was good!
All workers got good smile
Carmen is an amazing Catering Manager and Vivian a great server!
