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.

    Waiter was overly busy, didn’t pay attention or perhaps couldn’t even hear us speak, food has no flavor (grilled oysters, fried Brussels sprouts) did not receive 2 full sushi roll orders we asked to have packaged to go and paid for. I do not recommend this place.

    We were celebrating a special occasion last night and had told Shinsei. At the end of the evening our waiter said he wished that he had been told as he would have done something special. Because we were with another couple, we did not say too much as we had already communicated that earlier. Our food service was fairly slow last night, but it tasted delicious. On multiple occasions, our server apologized for the slow sushi service. Overall, it was a good experience.

    We sat in the "outdoor" space which is enclosed but with higher ceiling and more spaced out tables means its quieter, feels less crowded and more intimate. Our server, Shara, was phenomenally good!

    Great sushi. Very loud environment. Many tables are very close to each other making the noise issue worse. Like the restaurant but won’t be back because it’s so noisy you can’t have a conversation.

    We visit our grandkids whenever we get a chance and it is usually for special occasions! My daughter and her family always suggest Shinsei for our celebration dinner. This past Thursday was one of those occasions. It was my grand daughters 11th birthday. Dinner was incredible as always but our waiter was a special treat. Alfred not only was gracious with all our requests , some of us had to leave early and food delivered early, but was customer oriented and made our dinner extra special. He mentioned he had served in the navy when he saw my husbands hat and also thanked him for his service. So thank you Shinsei for having fantastic waiters and friendly accommodating receptionists?

    First time eating in the restaurant and we loved the interior. We got two Espring specials rolls and they were delicious! The Kendall roll was average, lacked flavor. Our server was great, very attentive. We had gotten take out before and were very under-whelmed. Glad we went in the restaurant to eat this time.

    My husband and I had been so impressed when we dined at Shinsei on NYE that he requested a return visit for his birthday. Our meal totally lived up to our memories. The Blood Orange cocktail was fantastic and my husband tried a new beer from Shinsei's selections. We tried the short rib potstickers and they were the best potstickers I've ever had; the dumplings were perfectly crispy without being greasy and the short rib filling was rich and decadent. My husband satisfied his craving for the sword fish and I enjoyed the show as it was served in a hot skillet and topped with garlic butter and lemon tableside. I loved my hoisin baby-back ribs, once again falling off the bone and covered in a delicous sauce. We accompanied our entrees with the tempura green beans and scallion mashed potatoes, both excellent. And of course a birthday is not complete without a dessert so we tried the banana parfait. The bruleed bananas were an elegant topper on this upscale take on banana pudding. Our server, Sharla, was fantastic and made our night feel very special. Shinsei is definitely one of our favorite restaurants and we will be back for another scrumptious meal soon!
