Wonderful Saturday lunch...slow pace with good service, informative and there when needed but not in your face..the tables far enough apart that you do not hear your neighbors conversations.... The oysters were sublime and the tofu. Wine on the expensive side but tolerable.

I've eaten sushi all over the country and find this place to be one of the best. When choosing a sushi restaurant you want to have an idea where they get the fish and how they handle it, very important! I live by the saying "respect the ingredients". The restaurant is pricey but in my opinion excellent food + excellent... More

Had a reservation at 15 East Saturday night at 9:15, arrived at 9:25 and hostess tell us that she gave our table and there is no more table available. Impossible to wait, just a "sorry". Hostess told us that she called us, but I showed her my phone with no miss call from the restaurant, she then told us there... More

We did a very Japanese menu, the foie gras chawa mushi is so yummy. The a la carte sashimi and sushi menu is full of exotic Japanese fish, all so tasty. Loved it!

When you read about, star Michelin, etc, you pre create a concept that will break down when you visit. Overpriced, good but not excellent. Even the tuna Toro was not as expected

This is for the people that do a nigiri omakase at the bar with Chef Masa. I won't even comment on the idiocy of sitting at a table at a place like this or sitting at the bar and ordering rolls. I think 15 East is tops among the top tier of NY (I don't count Masa and Kuruma as... More

The quality of the sushi was exceptional and the rolls were free from sugar and other additives I fear have become common. The atmosphere was elegant but formal/reserved.

The quality was amazing. Fresh fish, great presentation...what really blew me away was the service (on top of the food). The staff was knowledgeable. Charles, our maître d, was not only nice, but he was incredibly knowledgeable - he could tell us all about where the ingredients of our food came from, and how they were prepared. The Sake sommelier... More

The hype on this place is that, once you eat here all other sushi's are substandard !!! Once again a great over statement! Not saying its bad but by no means breathtaking.... And so small. If you go here expect a cool $200 per person for satisfaction. Or like us visit the hot dog stand on your way home!
