Shinsei Restaurant is a Traditional Sushi Bar with a Pan-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.

Our food is electrifying. But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Never boring, yet comforting at the same time. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

Sublime food and experience- between the tartare and shrimp dumplings, we couldn’t get enough. The server was right - they have the best brussel sprouts ever. We enjoyed our dining experience very much and can’t wait to get back.

This was the third year in a row that I brought my husband here for his birthday. Everything was delicious! My husband loved everything and was super excited that the sweet shrimp was gluten free! I had the steamed halibut dish (I’m not a sushi eater) and it was great! Thank you Shinsei! We’ll be back!

I’ve visited this restaurant many times over the years and have always had a good dining experience. Unfortunately, they’ve brought in bussers who run around and grab plates of food off the table without asking the customer if they were done. Plates should stay on the table until all portions are finished or the customer asks for the food to be taken away. For the price I expected more.

I cant tell if this is the fault of Shinsei or becoming a trend with OpenTable bookings the past year or so, but the tables that seem to be reserved through OpenTable are always the worst seat in the house. This experience was no different with a half full restaurant as we were seated about as far away from anyone except the kitchen behind a wall I didn't know existed from our many previous visits. I am seeing this trend with OpenTable bookings. Usually a restaurant can make it up with the quality of food, but not this night. It was really not very good, which is so disappointing based on how much it cost. I used to frequent Shinsei quite often, but haven been back in a year or so. Too many better options out there to go back now. In fairness, our server was very good and he bailed out an otherwise very mediocre experience. Pretty bummed.
