The restaurant offers semi private tables for all of its customers and Tokyo-style Japanese cuisine. The focus is on small plates for sharing and tasting with sake. The menu emphasizes Omakase (chef's tasting menu) which changes every five weeks to incorporate the freshest ingredients of the season. The sake selection includes over 50 kinds of carefully chosen premium sake labels.
Zenkichi continues to evolve with a recently added garden. The space is inspired by a Japanese mountain retreat with a glass ceiling that incorporates two 50 year old trees. Which expands the seating space and adds a new dynamic to the already unique décor.
This is the second time I dined at Zenichi, still very awesome atomsphere and friendly staff! Will come back again!
Fish was horrable. Very very disappointed.
Not recommend any more. I been here 8 times, they are not care about food condition well.
I mentioned that it was a birthday when I first made reservations. I ended up changing the time and people but they found us and surprised us with a birthday dessert! I was so happy. Thank you Zenkichi!
Incredible food, amazing service and great atmosphere!
Spectacular. If you want a couples romantic dinner, this is the place to go. No doubt.
We called ahead to see if their vegetarian menu could be adapted to be made vegan. They assured us they did this all of the time. The results were underwhelming. After spending over $140 (including tip) we went home from a 2 hour dinner hungry and had to make dinner at home.
Vegans should skip it. The food is mediocre. At that price, you're better off going into Manhattan for a proper vegan omakase at Kajitsu.
Was good, I was not upset with anything at all. But it was expensive for an ok omakase in a space that seemed eighty worn. Everything was good, servers were great, ambiance was just ok, and price was too high for what it was. Idk if that means it’s 3.5 or 4 star in today’s rating system. If I could give it 3.5 I would
Very enjoyable dinner. A little on the pricey side but you get a very well rounded meal. Sake pairings were on par and really enhanced the experience. Personal note: I have a shellfish allergy and my server was able to catch that one of the dishes had shellfish accidently served to me, she quickly took it away apologized and fixed my order. Great servive!
Very secluded booths. Memorable dining experience.
A little bit of Tokyo in Brooklyn! It was a great experience! I'll be back!
My husband and I did the 8 course tasting menu. Food obviously wasn’t fresh (look and taste) , things that should have been hot came out cold or almost cold , I will not be returning ever. Service was great however food came out very slow.
great food & great service!
Great service, understandable pricing, all food is cooked well. I am vegan and still found many options to choose from, including dessert. My girlfriend is not and was more than satisfied with both the chicken and fish dishes. I could not complain. My only suggestion to the restaurant would be to secure the wall paneling as it was slightly lifting off of the wall.
Everything is great, except for some food that has a fish on it, to fishy. Not all of them though.
The food was extremely over priced and low quality. The raw fish dishes just tasted like a salt water fish tank. The atmosphere was the only positive thing about this experience. If you’re looking for good, high quality omakase.... keep looking.
The food was amazing, but after we had eaten, they literally asked us to pay our bill and leave since they had others reservations booked and needed our table if we weren’t going to order anything else.
This place is definitely overrated. Food was served cold and did not taste good.
An experience that provides ambience but amazing food.
Great food and service, loved the food and vibe! The individual booths made for a really cool atmosphere.
Great overall concept, with creative dishes and intimate private dining. Most dishes were great, and some were exceptional while others were just a miss. The close semi-private setting is comfortable but you could still hear your neighbors’ conversations. Definitely recommend the sake pairing for the omekase.
everything was great, we actually liked the dim light for our anniversary, the ambiance and the food were perfect, but it was too cold in our table. it made us a little uncomfortable towards the end of our dinner. we will still return for next season’s Omakase :)
Terribly rude waitress. Unacceptable behavior to both our table and the table in front of us. Rarely write reviews but would highly recommend staying away from this one. Food was fine - exceptional.
This place is amazing!! The food was wonderful and our server was kind and accommodating! We sat in a second floor booth where they have the screens that enclose your party, and it was wonderful! Highly recommend.
Beautiful space, food, service. 5 stars. Would recommend for a romantic evening or any intimate gathering.
Traveled from Manhattan to have dinner at this restaurant in Brooklyn. Setting was reminiscent of Tokyo, good start. Took the winter menu and we were decidedly unimpressed. Nothing in the meal we had stood out. Nothing was memorable or particularly tasty.
Really wanted to like this place, maybe it was an off night. We won't be back. Sorry
Awesome experience,very original place & very good food
Great ambiance and food was excellent. We did the tasting menu and was full before the last course was served. Our particular server was weak but the service from other servers seemed strong.
Wonderful atmosphere, unique experience, outstanding food, amazing service and overall would come back again.
Great ambiance. It felt like we were in a spa. Excellent Omakase menu. Yet the best things was their incessant service. Very polite and very attentive. An enjoyable experience overall.
You feel in Japan, food and service is great! we tried the Omakase with Sake pairing I think is the way to go If is your first time there.
Great place for a romantic evening. Food was excellent and service was also great.
Fun place to have a quality experience with great Japanese food.
Romantic, private dining experience with great service
Zenkichi was a good experience. I got a vegetarian omakese, which started out great, but got very repetitive towards the end. I felt that most of the dishes were made out same vegetables: mushrooms, sweet potatoes and lots of tofu. Veg tempura was the worst I ever had, it was the most oily dish I have EVER eaten. Many dishes were sweet, which is not preference unless I am eating dessert.
People sitting next to me were so loud that I could barely hear my boyfriend who was sitting across from me. Yet it was a good experience. Desserts were yum. My boyfriend really enjoyed his winter omakese.
From the moment you find the entrance, the experience is unique. The service is incredible, and the privacy in which the seating is arranged adds immensely to the entire experience.
Winter Omakase with Sake pairing.
Lady had the Wheat-free Omakase.
Nice waitress. Good Service. Cool place. Most important: the Food: some courses not more than average, some simply not good . A simple piece of grilled salmon in a tasting menu? C'mon. Was hoping for something more special and better quality. Maybe a la carte is the better choice.
Sake was mostly good. 50$ pp too much though. Sad to say it was not the tasting experience we hoped for.
Amazing! Thank you so much! Awesome food and experience
Perfect in every way
