Shinsei Restaurant - Traditional Sushi / Contemporary Asian Kitchen

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.

    We had a great dinner. The only feedback is that we were taken to the third floor to be seated behind a partition facing the bar. No other diners were there and had to request to be seated in the main dining room. There was plenty of room in the main dining room and just think guests should be asked if they are ok with being seated upstairs before assuming it. I also brought a cake for a birthday celebration but requested cotton candy- none was ever brought to us.

    Mediocre service, we waited several minutes to be greeted. There was no pencil to write down the sushi order. Food came fast but the initial 15 minutes was very poor service.

    First time back to Shinsei in several years. Even long until I return. Everyone, literally everyone, from the hostess / greeters to bartenders, waiters, busboys....RUDE. Almost statistically impossible but true. Oh, valet folks were great.

    We had never been here but son suggested it for our dinner. It was great. Shara, or server, was so nice. I asked for nothing hotting my order. It was Very Hot seasoned. Shara took it back and brought another with NO hot spice. I so appreciated what she did. We all loved our dinner and time at the restaurant

    After much hype, we ended up very disappointed in our experience at Shinsei. We went on a Tuesday night. The restaurant wasn’t that busy but for some reason the wait staff seemed as though they had been prepped for a full house. I honor the wait staff and don’t think what happened was their fault but I did sense that some higher ups were at play. The wait staff seemed to be in rush mode. Upon entering the main dining, a wait person ran right into me. She apologized profusely. All good. But then….during our meal, we were asked repeatedly “Are you done?” “Are you still working on this?” “Can I take your plate?” Kind of thing - to the point that it became extremely irritating especially because there was still food on our plates - AND - we hadn’t been there very long. At one point, a bus person, took my partners’ plates and his glass of beer that still had beer in it. When I said something, he started to put it back - but his fingers were inside the glass. I started to become more annoyed. I said - “But your fingers are in the glass.” He didn’t say a thing - took the glass and walked away. I don’t think I was out of line and didn’t raise my voice but… come on?!?!?! What was the rush? Not the relaxing birthday dinner we had hoped to treat my partner’s daughter to. She and I are both very wait-person aligned, realizing that they were probably given orders to behave the way they did. So…I’m writing this review with hope that whomever is managing the wait staff at Shinsei reads this. Efficiency is one thing, but pushiness is quite another. Especially for the prices we paid for the dinner experience. We will not return.

    I celebrated my 30th birthday here with some friends! WE LOVE JIM AND CHAR! We sat upstairs and it was perfect for us. It felt we had our own space and we were not too crowded and the sound level was not too loud. We could have great conversations and enjoy INCREDIBLE food and drinks. Thank you for an amazing night! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    The food quality was definitely lower than I expect at Shinsei. Standards like the fried rice tasted worse than normal and seemed like they had been prepared the day before. Shishito peppers were dreadful. I took a friend from out of town; what a bummer.
