My husband and I visit Seiya multiple times a month. The service is consistently fantastic, the sushi is always fresh and delicious, and we love that it’s a relatively smaller, cozier place.

The food was delicious and the fish was very fresh. The hostess and waitress were very sweet. The only bad experience was that our order of omakase nigiri took 45 minutes to be served. The sushi chef probably had a really important customer who was sitting next to us, because the chef was focusing on those customers and paying no attention to us, even though we were sitting right in front of him. When their important customers left and our omakase order was finally ready, the sushi chef angrily told the hostess that we have been waiting for a long time. It was very awkward to be in that situation between the restaurant staff. We're probably not coming back.

Took 30 to get table and server was not friendly or helpful. It was during a week lunch and just unacceptable

Nothing special about the food, very pricey. Many other sushi places around are equal or better for less than half the price

This was our second time there. The staff is friendly and attentive and the sushi is great.

Menu items were hit or miss. Some of the rolls were quite good. Fatty tuna was absolutely delicious, but the mackerel was just too chewy to enjoy - textures were way off. They have a small robata grill selection - we tried the bacon wrapped prawn. Prawn was seriously overcooked and rubbery (probably left it on the grill long enough to cook the bacon, which meant that the prawn was overcooked by the time the bacon was done). Despite other people's complaints, service was good. Wine selection is poor.

Authentic and high quality sushi. Good value for price. Atmosphere is modern and good both for business and private. We were served complementary kanpachi carpaccio for my wife's birthday occasion.

Very nice place with great small plates to share. Did not have much of the sushi/sashimi so will have to return to fully evaluate, but it warrants a second visit.

We came here and got a variety of things, like seaweed salad, miso soup, an assortment of sashimi, and 2 rolls. Also got a sampler of sake and a coooooold Asahi for me. The Kobe beef roll was really something different and we both loved it - could've easily eaten 2 rolls each! The spider roll was also very good. Delicious sashimi. The service was the best part, as we got good attention from the wait staff to explain the different kinds of sake and sashimi. A bit pricey, but we'd come back.

We were not impressed with the omakase sashimi. The fish was tough and had bones!
