Sen Sakana Ratings and Reviews
Sen Sakana, "A Thousand Fish" in Japanese, may not offer 1,000 pescatory choices, but it does serve truly excellent sushi and a lot of Peruvian-Japanese cuisine that's delectable. The restaurant's take on traditional onigiri, for instance, is an elegant package of rice-enclosed fish, and its nanban chicken is crusted in quinoa in a treatment akin to tonkatsu. In short, the food is surprising in both presentation and taste. Sen Sakana is well worth a visit for anyone interested in what's going on these days in fusion cuisine.
Such a creative menu. Such impeccable ingredients. A helpful and attentive staff. Read about it, went with a friend and returned the next week with my husband. Best in the area, which doesn’t say that much, given the dearth of good restaurants there. Go. You won’t be disappointed.
Lived up to Pete Wells' review. Diverse menu demands a return visit. Excellent ceviche, uni app, grilled avocado was a delightful surprise, smokey veg in the salmon belly main were highlight - salmon a bit over cooked, chicken thigh excellent but too much rice; waffle dessert multi-flavors and worth sharing; music actually complemented food and environ
We loved Sen Sekana! Everything about it—beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. Fabulous food, wine, and cocktails. We followed our waiter’s suggestion in making choices with the prix fixed menu, and everything was delicious. The prix fixe menu was an incredibly great deal. The waiter was really nice, knowledgeable, and attentive to exactly the right degree. Everybody was. It felt welcoming. And here’s the thing — this was a no tips restaurant. I’ve not encountered that before and never would have expected it in NYC. The amazing thing is that the staff—every single person we encountered—was friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and attentive. Much more so than in places where tips are expected. Counter intuitive. But the people who run this restaurant are clearly talented, with their menus, food, drinks, management, and hiring. It was a delightful experience. Bravo Sen Sekana! And thank you.
Beautiful place. The staff and service were amazing. The online menu is intimidating. 18 pages of alcohol followed by confusion of food choices. We had the Nikkei tasting menu. The food looked good and the wait staff tried to explain each dish. Unfortunately we chose to sit at a dimly lit table so it was not easy to differentiate some of the ingredients in the unfamiliar dishes. The ceviches were great. Some of the other dishes were much less appealing. It felt less like fusion than like a series of Peruvian dishes followed by Japanese dishes. Every dish looked pretty. Our recommendation would be to make the menu simpler to navigate.
I really loved this place. I went with a good friend and we each got the OMAKASE NIKKEI NIGIRI. Each piece of fish was uniquely garnished, flavorful, and delicate. With a nice bottle of saki and complementary sparkling water and green tea it was a very satisfying meal. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and very attentive. Excellent service! Having been to several high end sushi restaurants in the city this was one of my favorites. It was very reasonably priced as they don’t accept tips! If you haven’t been here you must put it on your list. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Unique cuisine, a melange of Japanese and Peruvian. Much of it has a tingle to the tongue which is exciting and very flavorful. The setting is a modern New York sophisticated interior, with spacious room between tables and though a large restaurant it is divided into sections that don't impinge upon the privacy of your dining experience and you lose the sense of its ample space. Service is impeccable.
