Repeat customer. One of the best in NYC. I always get the tuna flight and slow poached octopus and then work get whatever menu items we’re in the mood for. Not cheap though but it’s Manhattan and it’s top quality sushi.

service is OK I felt like I was in non-descript airport restaurant - no character -- sushi is fresh but not worth the price

the only down side was that after having omakase diner they basically send us away immediately, handing over our coats and starting cleaning the restaurant.

Terrific sushi (I had the 10 course omakase), amazingly fresh and varied. The seaweed salad was interesting -- most of the choices were a bit bland by themselves, just texture really. But the added vinaigrettes, one per choice, were excellent and made the dish. Yellowtail roll was delicious, but a bit diluted by the roll rice--better just to have the yellowtail as sushi or sashimi. It ain't cheap, but in line with other high-end sushi places (and they offer a lot more than sushi, which is nice.)

Tuvimos que esperar 30 minutos a que nos dieran la mesa, a pesar de tenerla reservada. Y esa espera es muy desagradable, porque apenas disponen de espacio y la barra no está habilitada para amenizarla

Became a small sushineta(fish topping) & shari(vinegar rice) mo' than last time visit, it seems child meal, not for adult size. So I thought local people might b need 2 have double or triple volume of them. & raised price but didn't have a freshness & volume as value of price. Less the volume of Soba noodle & soup was not hot, bit salty & too strong of Katsuo taste. Then Soba noodle was too short! That was not right Soba noodle length!!! So I could not slurp the Soba noodle. & Tenpura topping were not hot. Might b leave somewhere for a while before serve me, it's bad! Chef might b think it is okay that 2 serve not hot Tenpura cuz customer will b dip into the soba soup anyway... But sorry that Soba soup also was not hot enough so won't b make it hot with. But they served us one desert as surprise service, it was very nice service 4 us! Thank u! But totally I could't feel any pride of chef 4 tonight @ there. I wanted to have mo' nice meal & 2 c the right value of food @ there as anniversary meal.

Omakase is authentic. I like every piece I had. Ther service is exceptional which I chose the 15 pcs omakase, and it didnt include desserts. I ordered sorbet and they served yoghurt mouse in anshinmizu syrup for complimentary. Super super nice service and staff. Thank you for wonderful food and service.

I could not hear the waiter. The quality of the Sushi was fair at best. The cooked dishes had little prep.

My single worst experience at a high end Sushi Restaurant

Got the check and left early.

Stay away

It is expensive but the food is very good
My major problem was that we came on time for our 8 o’clock reservation and were not seated until after 8:20. Rather than offer us a drink the hostess repeatedly came over and said they were setting up the the table and it would just be a minute or two. When we finally confronted her 10-15 minutes later it became apparent that the previous guests had not yet vacated the table; they were not setting anything up yet. Our hostess seemed confused that we were upset at being mislead.

A perfect restaurant. Elegant, refined but in no means stuffy, this restaurant ranks on the top of the list of New York's fine establishments. The food was beautifully presented and beyond delicious. The Sake recommended by the staff was just divine. And where else on earth could you fined green tea creme brulee. Highly recommend

All of my guests were more than impressed with the quality, preparation, and freshness/taste of the omakase. We were there for a large party (5-8 person) lunch which we pre-arranged with the restaurant, and they more than satisfied the hospitality we wanted to extend to our clients.

Great place for melt in your mouth sushi. The ingredients used were fresh, the rice perfectly seasoned, and the wasabi adds an extra soft punch to your palate. Would recommend if you are willing to spend the money to enjoy delicious food. Overall, delicious!

15 East has been around a while - and for good reason. The food was excellent. It has been a while since both my husband I were discussing how good our meals were the next day! We originally wanted sushi but ended up ordering hot entrees. The lobsters uni risotto was absolutely delicious. My husband at the duck and really loved it. We even tried dessert was which was great.

Beat omakase in NYC (except maybe Masa). But sitting at the sushi bar is essential.

Food was way overpriced and tasted so so. I gave $50 for the tips anyway. Guess what? When I happened to look at my credit card record, this restaurant has charged me $500 for the tips. Yes, $500. I called the restaurant, instead of returning wrongly charged $450 to me immediately, she said they wanted to investigate it. I simply submitted a dispute on this charge to my credit company and let them handle it. Will never eat in this restaurant again.

Usually many upscale restaurents give extra piece of sushi after omakase. I was a bit surprised to see extra charge for one more sushi order. Why bother ask?
