When we came up with the concept of Shinsei we wanted a place that reflected our lifestyles: sometimes we went out to dinner with our kids and sometimes with our friends and husbands. We wanted to create a place where a night out with the kids didn’t mean food adults had to suffer through or a night out with the parents didn’t mean a stuffy place where kids had to wear a scratchy clip-on tie. Shinsei is just that: a neighborhood gathering place with date night appeal.
But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

The place, decoration and service was very good but the food not the best one. We felt the fish sushi was not that fresh and the beef of the hot rock we ordered did not have much flavor. The only thing we know is that the Thai fried rice was a bomb. The drinks were good and the price fair enough. Maybe we will give it another chance sometime!
Always a great place to dine. Busy
I love Shinsei. I just wish it was open for more lunches than just Friday. Like Tue thru Fri! :)
Great! Couldn’t have had a better dinner.
Shin sei is my favorite go to date night place! It can be more casual or more dressy and the food is amazing! We always order tapas style and ask for servers recommendations but some of my favorites are the krista rice, gratin lady, spicy ichigo, and the oysters. Yumm
Muy buen ambiente y la comida muy rica.
The food was wonderful and the service attentive. We were seated promptly, the waiter knew the menu well and answered our questions. We had a wonderful time.
Great! Delicious food as usual.
It was my sons birthday - the serve,Khalil, was amazing. He created us,greeted our son personally, and was attentive throughout the food is always great but Khalil made it special.
We had a great time!
We celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday...Excellent, quick, friendly service...great food and atmosphere
Doesn’t get any better than Shinsei!
We’ve always loved Shinsei and were slightly disappointed this time around. We were seated in the enclosed patio which unfortunately doesn’t have the same charm as the main restaurant. They brought our food so fast that it seemed they were rushing us out. The food was great and our waiter was nice but it just wasn’t quite the same over the top experience we’ve had in the past.
Tammie is a treasure! She makes every dining experience better. Food is always on point.
Consistent and solid quality of food - good variety of menu choices. The biggest drawback is the noise level can get really high, On our last visit we constantly had a cold draft blowing on us - even though we were in separate room away from the entrance. Between the noise and the cold air it wasn't the most comfortable environment - we couldn't wait to get out of there!
Always great and feels like home...with much better food!
It is delicious! Great food & wine!!
Clean, simple atmosphere. Friendly waitstaff and very helpful when describing items and making suggestions. The Amanda Roll was very tasty and the Beef Potstickers were delicious. Good value and great neighborhood spot. Looks like nothing special from the outside but who cares if the meal is delicious!
This place is soooo good. The food is alwa
I've always seen this place but never took the opportunity to try it. I was so impressed once I did! Gorgeous interior behind those secretive big doors, excellent service and absolutely phenomenal food. The quality of sushi was amazing. I've found my new go to sushi spot for sure!
Amazing as always. Consistently amazing, what more can you ask for?
I’m a regular. Love it.
Food was not as good as I expected. The fish didn't seem too fresh.
It was our 1st time and we will definitely be back...Everything was amazing...food, cocktails, and service!!!
Awesome n every way!
Our reservation was honored right on time. Food was amazing, as always! Very high quality. Martinis were fabulous and super cold.
Food is always delicious, service is on point, and the atmosphere is fun. Great for celebrations and date nights.
Great place. Really good food.
The food took an extremely long time to come out and we felt rushed once we got the food because they gave us a time limit for dinner. The limit was 1.5 hours due to covid but the restaurant appeared to be operating at full capacity. We dine here frequently and will be back and hopefully will have a better experience.
Delicious food but it was crowded and they seated us at the bar even though we had a reservation
Great for our family dinner. Always amazing food and great service.
Had been debating going to this place for a couple of months, I'm not big on seafood/sushi, but finally decided to try it.
Initially, looked very cozy, not a lot of social distancing going on at the bar but that was expected. Lot of jerk-offs walking by/out without masks but was also expected given the HP crowd.
The service was great, no complaints there. 10/10
Drinks from the bar were strong so be careful haha but pretty interesting cocktails. I would definitely go back to try more. 10/10
As I said before, I'm not big on seafood/sushi but decided to try some yellowtail sashimi. It was honestly a lot more well rounded than I expected. Without the soy you could definitely taste the notes of hazelnut but with the soy sauce it was amplified and had an amazing flavor profile. The lovers roll was also pretty good, nothing special though. Overall, 8/10.
The Sushi is always top notch and this time was no different. We had several sides, specifically the brussell sprouts which were great and shishito peppters and edamame. Tammy served us and she is fantastic. Another great experience at Shinsei.
Francisco was an excellent server! Highly recommend Katina’s Krispy Rice and Jalepeno Yellowtail!!
There was no distancing in the restaurant. It was the most uncomfortable dining experience my family and I have had since Covid began. The tables were too close together and the restaurant seemed to be at full capacity.
Very adequate portions on all 6 of our items ordered amd all absolutely delicious! Friendly server and nice spacing of guests.
