We were going to go to another place but the FIFA games were on and it was loud and crowded where we wanted to go. There were 4 of us, wearing shorts and tshirts. We walked into this place and immediately felt out of place. Everyone was wearing suits and ties in here. We did not see this until we... More

During our trip to NYC, we desired to try a Michelin Japanese restaurant. Because many of them do not open at noon, finally we reserved a table in this one. We arrived when the dinning room was empty, the welcome service was perfect and kindly but when the room became crowded, all waiters were stressed.I took a prix fixe lunch... More

Few years back we were getting our sushi fix at a very well known sushi restaurant which should remain nameless but it is located in the East 40s and there is a time limit to eat your food. It was still okay to sit down at the sushi bar, order few appetizers and enjoy the Chef's Omaksase but after the... More

Just off Union Square on a quiet street and no sign you will find an excellent and elegant sushi oasis called 15 East. I have been going here for years and taking the uninitiated. Everyone leaves happy. the signature items for me are the sea lettuce tasting sampler, the sashimi omakase and the desserts. I always try a new Japanese... More

Sushi and sashimi were delightful. Delicicous fresh wasabi, I'm never going to eat Store bought wasabi again. Each piece os sushi was divine. Home made Soba noodles. The service was excellent, although the tables are a bit close together. I love this place.

This is the first of the 11 restaurants to be reviewed in my NYC tour. I did not take notes during the meals but the memories are still very fresh. However, I made extensive research in advance before embarking into this culinary journey to NYC as I knew that it would be difficult to get reservations in some of the... More

Small dishes for the Lunch Menu, good Sushi but only average choice, excellent Soba - the noodles - but poor accompaniment, even out of the Lunch Menu. Good quality, prices ok, but discussible value. Good service. Maybe we should go to Dinner - I can't explain the Michelin Star otherwise.

15 East is fine, but stiff and rigidly formal. Comfortable and cold at the same time, and extremely expensive. 540 dollars for two, including a 140 pinot noir. Our friends talked about this place, it is more a resume restaurant, you dine in 15 East to tell that you've been there. It is more the glamour, but the vibe wash't... More

A highly authentic bit of Japan in Manhattan. We've been on holiday to Japan four times and my partner has been for work countless times and so we're very familiar with Japanese cuisine. 15 East is a very good advert for the country. We began the meal with sharing a starter each, the first of which was tako (octopus) which... More

Ordering your whiskey “on the rocks” instead of “neat” triggers an undisclosed $3 surcharge here. Asked about the disconnect between our bill’s $21 per drink and the $18 shown on the drinks list, our server told us it’s “restaurant policy” to tack on an extra $3 if you order your drink with ice. Note to restaurant: a better practice would... More
