My girlfriend and I had a beautiful and pleasurable dining experience. Their Omakase menu was delicious! They accommodated my dietary restrictions without batting an eye. They had an extensive sake menu and provided recommendations we enjoyed.
I bought my wife here for a suprise Birthday dinner and booked on open table from London. What can I say it had everything from the romantic ambience if your looking for a really special occasion this is the place. Not just that but the food and service was very good. Portions are not huge however, but a selection of some unique japaneese dishes will always fulfill you. Well it did for us. There are mini booths with wooden type curtains that are put down by the waiter/waitresses to allow a private intimate dining and only opened when they bring food and drink. Perfect of you want somewhere without noise and quite setting. A must for a special occasion. Location wise just across the bridge in Brooklyn. By train nearest station is Bedford Avenue and a just a few minutes walk from there.
Really lovely service and solid food. Great sake selection. Most of all, loved he ambiance and intimate dining experience. A refreshing getaway from the bustling North Williamsburg restaurants.
Girlfriend’s birthday dinner celebration with just the two of us. I had read about this location from 12 top romatic restaurants in nyc so we decided to give it a shot. It was a very cozy location with wide selection of Japanese cuisine. We opted for the omakase as it doesn’t require us to study the menu. Everything was fresh. Unique and delicious. Definitely a great romantic spot for a really delicious bite that was worth the value.
1st I’ll start off by saying that I am not the type of person to leave reviews. If I’m going to take the time to leave a review it was either the Absolute Best or Worst experience. Zenkichi was not only THE BEST Experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant but it was THE BEST Food I have ever had in my life!!!An extremely intimate atmosphere, very private & absolutely perfect for any special occasion or date night!!! I could go on & on. Will definitely be back for more!!!
Amazing food! Every course was delicious. Absolutely loved the intimate ambiance.
Very zen. Enjoyed having private enclosed booths
The restaurant is a great spot for dates if Brooklyn isn't too out of the way for you. The location is much larger than pictures would lead you to believe and has a great ambience. Staff is very attentive and caring, highlight of our experience was definitely the service. The meal was also enjoyable however slightly lower than some other Japanese places at a close price point with the exception of their tofu, which is made in-house. Definitely the best tofu I've had in a while. All in all its a 5 star experience for me as there is nothing to complain about and my girlfriend who is Japanese suggests that the dishes they serve suits a more Japanese palette and gives it a full 5 stars as well.
Pretty nice place and romantic, will recommend for special occasions. Food is pretty good.
The service was superb! Food and experience was unique!
Fish not as great as usual but live this hidden place.
This restaurant is ideal for a date night! The food was delicious and the ambiance romantic! A bit noisy but who cares!
Zenkichi is a delight. Always courteous and always detail oriented. The food was delicious and the sake was too! We ordered a sake from the specials menu - and even though sake is expensive this was a lower priced bottle and it was VERY good. I always love bringing my friends to Zenkichi because it reminds me of home and the graciousness of Japan. Yay Zenkichi! Also, they told me about Akari, the next door spot who's space is more open...so we will definitely come back to try that! Thank you!!
We had a wonderful time as always.
Food was simply divine, the sake pairings perfectly fit each dish, especially delicious was the plum sake and the monkfish tempura. All the food simply melted in your mouth and the semi private booths were so cozy and romantic.
The best restaurant I've ever visited. Nice staff, nice food. It was my girlfriend's birthday. The staff gave an amazing surprises.
My favorite restaurant in NYC. Excellent food, excellent service, lovely setting, privacy. Authentic regional Japanese cuisine.
Really cool spot and atmosphere! Food selection extremely limited and and portion sizes were extremely tiny !! We had one waiter - was nice and accommodating- then another waiter took over- Ika-she was rude and miserable !!! We asked for another order of spicy mayo - she told us there was already one on the table - to use that one ! (It was my friends spicy mayo ). After we insisted - she brought us another one.
Nice restaurant for a quiet dinner. Great service and food is good.
Perfect for a date or special occasion for a party of 2. The quiet secluded booths are perfect for conversation and intimacy. The pre-fix gives a wide variety of authentic cuisine. Highly recommend.
Waiting room smelled like fish, food was mediocre at best. Service was very good, but food definitely was not worth the money.
This place was fabulous. The energy and ambiance were impressive. What I like most was the closed in booths for privacy. Definitely a must visit place in Williamsburg.
My wife and i have been dining at Zenkichi for a long time and I have left many positive reviews in the past. Unfortunately this past visit turned out to be disappointing. This time we decided to try their special Valentines Day Omakase which was $125. Their normal Winter omakase was $75. The number of courses, 8, was the same for both. Most of the courses turned out to be good. But the portions were very small for every course. The worst part was that we felt cheated when the dessert course turned out to be a piece of chocolate truffle the size of a finger tip and another firger size jelly like candy next to it. We were pretty sure the real desert course is yet to come. It never did. It is like calling the amuse bouche a course in a nice French restaurant. We ordered 3 glasses of sake each. But the sake portions were very tiny, half full, small glasses. So we both felt cheated paying a tab of $375 for dinner. This is not the Zenkichi we used to love.
My husband and I have been celebrating his birthday at Zenkichi for the past couple of years. The food is always delicious, and the ambiance is very romantic. This year, they gave us a little dessert plate to celebrate his birthday, and it was a very nice touch.
Everything about Zenkichi makes for a most memorable evening -- the private booths, the polite discrete staff, the incredibly beautiful AND delicious food... get the seasonal omakase! (For an extra special -- though $ -- night out, get the sake pairing!)
Impecable service. Fantastic food.
This was our first authentic Japanese restaurant I was happy to see vegan course offered paired with sake. The overall experience was nice and would recommend friends.
Absolutely recommend this place for special date night
Came here for an anniversary. Overall, was very nice! Food was delicious and service was wonderful. I thought it would have been more intimate, but we were surrounded by other couples who were talking loudly. Prices are a little high, but we did the A La Carte instead of the pre-fix which we liked because we got to choose our actual dishes.
Very cool New York restaurant with an great atmosphere. Private booths and excellent service. Great date spot.
The omakase dinner was good. It was I believe 8 courses and worth the money and the trek out to brooklyn. The most memorable was the uni which was an addition to the omakase. Went there to celebrate wife's birthday. The description of the restaurant being romantic is not right. It is just a typical Japanese restaurant decor that you would find in Japan.
I have been to this restaurant many times. The food is high quality and the service is excellent.
Great place for a date
The best Japanese in Brooklyn
Amazing service and ambiance
Really nice place with excellent good!
You can experience the Japanese dining culture here.
Food was delicious and service was great
The ambiance is warm and instantly lets you know that you’re in for a wonderful experience. The tasting menu is the way to go. Every dish is creative, visually stunning and incredibly delicious. It’s one of the most memorable dining experiences one could hope for.
LOVE THE ATMOSPHERE.
FOOD WAS FRESH AND GOOD AND SERVICE WAS GREAT.
