Very fresh fish

I enjoyed the sushi and the Uni flight of three sushi. However for an Omakase meal, the experience may not have been as attentive because the chefs had to also prep for tables seated at the back. But it's definitely a good meal.

I was a huge fan of 15 East when I first sat at the sushi bar several years back. I have eaten at most of the top rated sushi restaurants in New York and LA and recall a meal that ranked amongst the very best in terms of the quality and presentation of the sushi. Each piece was individually served... More

I sat solo at the sushi bar where one can watch the master craftsmen in action. The bar is great if you are two to three but I suspect a table would be better for a larger group. I took the Chefs selection. The food is of the highest quality and tastes fantastic. Great, not often seen Japanese beer was... More

As I said be careful, in our last night at NY we went for dinner, I have to say that food is very good although over priced, we paid 361$ for two people dinner (in 1 hour) and we left still hungry. They charge us this amount and we left 10$ tip, they shouldn't nbe very happy about that because... More

I normally go to good sushi places every place I travel in the world. The consoler of my hotel sent me there.. The service from the beginning was very nice and the host sat me down at the bar. The moment she put the napkin on me and set all wonderful I knew.. They are going to overprice it. I... More

Bottom line: the food is good as expected from a Michelin-starred restaurant and service was meticulous, but this is still overpriced and underportioned. Came here on a Thursday night - the dining room is very small and cozy, it is a separate room from the sushi bar. The ambiance is nice, mostly couples with 2-3 tables of larger groups. The... More

The food is fabulous,wait staff attentive, it's quiet and perfect for having conversation. It's always booked so do in advance. It's pricey but worth every penny! Dress well here!

I came here to celebrate the closing of a business deal with two clients. Everything was up to or beyond expectations. We ordered omakase and a few other items, like the tasting of 11 seaweeds, which is a must. The fish courses were fantastic and really steal the show - the fish is gleaming, whether plain or garnished with just... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
