Sushi Seki Times Square
The main floor, with large bar, perfect for pre and post theater dining, provides a casual and contemporary experience, featuring a 7 seat Mini Omakase counter, a 76-seat dining room, a sushi bar, Chefs Omakase and three private dining Tatami rooms. The bar offers a full selection of premium wines, an impressive array of complete the experience.
Downstairs is also home to The Kappo Room a seasonal restaurant offering a 5 seat Chef’s counter, open kitchen, and a communal table.
Upstairs features an artisanal whisky and sake bar followed by three Tatami rooms for private dining, while an exclusive 13-seat sushi bar offers lively, theatrical entertainment for the entire 72-seat dining room.
The best sushi in this world, the freshest, I have no words! Everytime I come visit NY, its the first place I go. I’ve been going for about 9 years!
This is one of my favorite omikaze in NYC. They always serve interesting dishes. Excellent Sake list too.
The sushi was fantastic and I've eaten a lot of Sushi at great Sushi spots in NYC, Boston, Seattle and San Francisco. I wouldn't say this was the best, but it was easily among the top five. Only short coming was in the atmosphere. We were seated in the back room facing a blank wall. There was only one other table seated in the room and they were right next to us, awkwardly close. These were minor issues and did not detract from the stunningly delicious meal.
Great Sushi, they can make the special based on food allergies which is awesome! Went for a late dinner with friend last call for food was at 11:30pm which was suitabkebfor us but think about it if you have really late plans
Great food & service, ambiance nice & quiet.
Some improvement on furniture comfort & proximity of tables will be appreciated for a restaurant of this level.
Although Sushi Seki Chelsea is one of my favorite restaurants, Sushi Seki Times Square was surprisingly disappointing. At the same price tag, the portions are significantly smaller than the portions at the other two Sushi Seki restaurants, presumably to scam tourists. The service was poor as well: the waiter botched three orders and included sesame seeds in two dishes despite my repeatedly telling him I was deathly allergic to sesame seeds. One of the hot dishes--the salmon sautéed tomato specialty dish--came out cold, and the waiter told my family and me that we would need to wait at least fifteen minutes to receive any additional sushi orders to discourage us from sitting at the table too long. It was a pretty terrible experience all around, starting with the hostess seating us at a table above which the light fixture didn't work.
Asked for teriyaki salmon medium rare and it came overcooked. Though I wouldn't have asked for something else, I was surprised no one asked how our food was, given the prices.
I’ve been here MANY times for pre theater dinner, but this night was awful. The food was just as good as it always is, fresh and tasty, but the service was abysmal. We waited 20 minutes for drinks, 45 min for food -everyone did. I’m not sure what was going on, but I’ve never seen it like this. The manager was very apologetic and sent us out multiple desserts for free and gave us 20% off our check which certainly made up for it. I hope this was just a one-off bad night.
Pleasant and convenient dinner spot before a Broadway show. Food well prepared and prompt, with very efficient service. A great bargain for pre-show.
maybe we ordered wrong items, but it was underwhelming, nothing to talk about
Great dinning experience upstairs in the whiskey bar. The staff was very knowledgeable about Japanese whiskey and that allowed us to try new brands outside our comfort zone.
Amazing sushi, and a great spot for dinner before a show.
While I’m not a sushi aficionado so I can’t tell if the 400 price rave for omakase for 2 was worth it but I did come out full and satisfied. Wouldn’t go all the time but def for special occasions
We are sushi seki fans and have been going for many many years and almost always do Omakase. This experience was subpar...fish wasn't the same quality...felt unimaginative...far from blew our minds as usual. We haven't given up hope and will return again to see if it was just an off night.
Amazing food. Always terrific
Had the omakase. It was our first time trying that anywhere and it absolutely blew us away. We had the sushi and sashimi version, and all 4 courses were excellent. We hope to enjoy again someday. The dessert (matcha crem brulee) was also wonderful, and the bartender made a great whiskey recommendation. 10/10.
We have been to Sushi Seki on the upper eastern side and it is always great food and service. We have been to the Times Square location before and it was good but this time the service was lousy despite us being the only table occupied for part of the meal. Our waiter didn’t know the off menu items and brought the wrong items several times. The fish itself was not nearly as good as we have had at the upper east side. I won’t be going back there given the quality and the price.
Excellent sushi restaurant in a great location that offered tasty dishes and an attentive staff.
Très bon sushi , dommage le service a la mexicaine
I did Omaksa for 4 people. The best course they brought out by far was the additional add on at the end. Its not right when you pay so much money and they save the best selection for the people that are willing to spend additional money on top of the 120 a person. Taking advantage of the customer is not right and this was the case during this dining experience. Upper east side location is the only good experience I have ever had at seki
Everything was amazing. The best service and the best food. Pure delight.
Authentic Japanese restaurant......outstanding food...sashimi was perfectly selected by our chef his assortment was just right. Everything was Very very Fresh and tasty. Great service as well. Great restaurant!!
Had the kai-seki sushi dinner. Just outstanding. Been to Japan many times and this is perfectly authentic. Fish quality was amazing and cooked dishes were delicate and perfectly presented. Sake selection was also very good. Don't look at prices -- it's worth whatever you are paying. Expect $500 for two with drinks.
You guys raise the bar way above everything I have ever consumed. Excellent fresh vibrant thank you
Extraordinarily delicious for a warped experience, more inspiring and unusual than the standard sushi fare. Oamakase always delightful.
It was awesome and I recommend to EVERYONE!!!!! The food was amazing. I would definitely go back.
I was going to a show and we wanted sushi before. I chose this based on reviews but had low expectations . Was pleasantly surprised by the quality, service and preparation . I have been to Tokyo several times and this is in range
Have been going often to Sushi Seki in their various locations for over 15 years. Always an exquisite experience. Chef Seki is simply the best.
Have eaten there often as I am in NYC. Always been a perfect meal with excellent service. I would place this as a first-class restaurant.
Every time I come visit NY I always make a visit to sushi seki. My fave sushi spot on times square area. Overall had a good experience each time! Food is really good!
Nice place. Not great sushi.
Great sushi, typical japanese cuisine. The service was quick but out waiter was new and uninformed. The prices where steep but the quality was there. Would not go back.
Food was great worth trying will definitely be going back to this place.
A real disappointment. From the poor service quality to the just average food quality. The waitress had trouble understanding English so we simplified our order as she was struggling and then the order was messed up anyway, eg, we ordered 10 pieces of yellow tail which is 5 orders and she initially brought us 2 pieces and then we had to ask her to get the other pieces which she did and charged us for 10 orders. I dreaded having to explain the issue so I just paid for the orders anyway. The dinners came out at different times so the sushi dinners were ready and then we had to wait no less than 10 min. for the hot orders. And to top it off the quality of the sushi was just average. Was hoping for better but would not recommend this place, and not cheap so should be much better.
They were very courteous about a birthday and brought out drinks and a dessert compliments of the house. Nice non-sushi choices for my kids who don’t eat sushi.
The tatami room was a new experience for kids but didn’t give a social atmosphere.
The floor under the table was not clean and there was a napkin from previous diner which made me wonder about their attention to detail.
Overall, it met our needs and the sushi special had some nice surprises. Especially liked the sushi with the tomato on it!
I will start by saying that I have gone to all the Sushi Seki locations and I am generally a huge fan. This was, hands down, the worst experience I have had at a Sushi Seki.
I took a client here because they were in from out of town and wanted to try some of the best sushi in NYC. I raved about Seki and was excited to take them.
We both started off with ordering a miso soup each and an chopped eel avocado piece each.
I have ordered chopped eel avocado for every meal, every single time I come here. This was terrible. The avocado was so dry and had barely any taste at all. This piece was awful.
We both chose to order the Seki Special for our main course.
In the past, I have substituted the roll for a Spicy Scallop hand roll. At times, I’ve been told it would be a few dollars more, which is fine. However, our waitress today absolutely refused and explained that this was not an option. She explained that we could only have a tuna scallion or a shrimp tempura roll. While we were disappointed, we decided one of us would get a tuna scallion and the other would get a shrimp tempura.
Midway into our apps, the waitress came over and said she could not give us either of those rolls and that we just have to have a spicy tuna roll. Disappointment on top of disappointment.
Our sushi arrived and was absolutely the most awful sushi meal I had ever experienced at Seki.
The eggplant piece was inedible. The rice on all the pieces was dry and had no flavor. The salmon tomato was not seared as it often is. The seared salmon was not fatty and lacked flavor. Even the tuna did not taste fresh at all.
All the fish was completely subpar and we didn’t even eat some of the pieces. Quite honestly, I was appalled.
We ordered a spicy scallop handroll which was actually quite enjoyable but tragically, this was literally the only part of the meal that we enjoyed.
I have no idea what happened today but this was a major disappointment and I am truly in shock.
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.
Everything is awesome!
