Food is amazing but this is a Michelin starred restaurant?! The service sucked. My table wasn’t cleared until way after I waited, waited then eventually requested my check. My water & tea we’re not filled until I requested. When you come in, you’re bombarded with questions way before you settled in. But after you order, no one cares. Other locations might be better than the Times Square restaurant. For these prices, much more is needed than just good fish.

The food was absolutely stupendous. However, we were not informed that the Omikase sashimi (12 pieces each for 2 people) would run nearly $200, when the sashimi dinner would have been $40 per person. While we thoroughly enjoyed the food, we did experience sticker shock at the cost. Other people might want to know as well.

This is a fancy sushi place in Times Square, and the sushi is pretty good, but not worth the high price. I got a house sake, which lacked smoothness or interesting taste features. I also got an eggplant appetizer, which was delicious, but only because the eggplant was SOAKED in miso -- no subtlety. At a place this upscale, I expect everything to be top-notch.

This is our 2nd time visiting this restaurant. We love the following rolls: shrimp tempura, spicy scallops, fried oysters and California rolls. Of course we had some gyoza too. Only complain is as many NYC restaurants table are too closed to eac others making it your dinner no so romantic nor private

Sushi Seki has been our favorite restaurant for many years and we have been loyal patrons! They closed the upstairs of this restaurant and now that it is downstairs they have not gotten it together- the service was so awful - they made us wait 1 hour and 10 minutes before bringing a morsel of food. When the food arrived it was sporadic and nobody received their food together. The sushi was great as always! We called over the manager who we know from frequent visits - he did not apologize or try to help in any way. He basically ran the other way instead of admit they fell short in service and would try to make us more comfortable next time. Unfortunately for them there are many great sushi restaurants in nyc - we will not be returning.

We ordered uni sushi and both of them had ammonia smell in them. Ikura sushi were not fresh either. The servant screwed up the credit card transactions. The experience is disappointing.

We are regulrs at the original location.
I get the omakase every time
This is nothing likw to original location

Chef seki needs to inspect this place and get involved otherwose it will destroy his reputation.

Ordered Omakase, charged $100 for 12 pieces of sushi. Past omakase for similar cost at other NYC restaurants yielded a big beautiful plate of sushi. Terrible value, sushi was fine, not the best, but good enough.

The sushi rolls I had were plain and average, especially for the price. My daughter got the theater menu and enjoyed her food. For the price the food was not that exciting. The sugar on the green tea creme brulee was burnt and bitter. I had to scrape it off. The creme brulee itself was mediocre, at best. Not the sushi experience I was hoping for, especially for the price.

That said, the service was excellent. The restaurant was clean, comfortable and quite with a nice atmosphere.
