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 table was ready! The server was beyond amazing and was not rushing throughout our experience. The food was so good and everything came out in a decent amount of time. This is a unique place, it can be great for a romantic evening, unwinding after work, or a social gathering.

We ordered the ahi/yellowtail sashimi and shrimp sushi rolls, followed by the steamed halibut and miso black cod. I felt the sauce with the halibut overpowered the fish, but otherwise it was very good. Everything else was excellent. One side note: there was no toilet paper in the restroom and the trash can was overflowing with used paper towels. While it was very noisy, overall we had a great experience and will certainly return, as well as recommend it to friends.

Food is always amazing! But, the last three times we have made a 6:30 reservation, we've been seated in the walkway between the entry and the stairs. Really takes away from the ambience.

Casey was super awesome!! Took care of me. The Salmon was a miss at the end, overcooked a little. The rice a bit sticky, mushy but the dessert was the highlight. Chocolate Spring Rolls😋 but the vibe is the best.

Great food! Miso cod entrée was our favorite. Bread pudding is a delicious dessert. Pork potstickers also great. Actually all the food was great! It was packed, which I think is the norm. A little dark inside for my husband's liking, but I didn't mind it so much. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and will go back!

Overall enjoyed and food is quite good though think pricing on large plates 10 - 20% too high. Excellent & thoughtful service. Fairly small dining rooms with close proximity to other diners. Pretty noisy though not to the point of distraction. Despite $300 check birthday was not acknowledged (mentioned when making reservation).

The food was just ok for the price. I can get better sushi elsewhere. Our service was very poor. He finally came by just to take our menus and I was like “…can we order??”. Then they boxed up our leftovers together even though they were on separate plates for separate people. Just an overall underwhelming experience for the price.
