This is an authentic Japanese restaurant, complete with discriminatory practices from the 19th century. I tried to dine here the other night and brought my tiny newborn baby, who we have eaten out with at least 20 times. He is tiny so does not make a noise and sleeps through our meals. He was in an ergo, so not like... More

It's a very intimate and dark place for date. Not the most luxury place but they do try to make a theme restaurant. Every table or cubicle has semi-walls or curtains for privacy and the server will not bother u unless u push for the service bell. Food was excellent. There are a lot of small dishes u can order...

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I figured that this dining experience was going to be incredible, but this restaurant completely surpassed my expectations. My husband and I were blown away by how private our booth was and how friendly and helpful the staff members were. We ordered the eight-course meal and I'm so glad we did because every single dish was... More

My husband and I love Zenkichi. We have been coming here for at least 2 years. Maybe longer. Drinks: I have to start with the sake because it's 4 pages of the menu. I LOVE their sake. Never had a bad one. Please don't order hot sake. Just try a cold one. They have one to suit any taste. Food:... More

As my son lives in Williamsburg, we never visit without stopping into Zenkichi for a great meal! The atmosphere is interesting as it's very dark, maze like, and all the private booths have blinds! The service is excellent and the waiter will help you in your selections. The Sake Tasting menu is great and the food is excellent: Cold Fresh... More

I had heard about Zenkichi from many friends and on my last visit two weeks ago I finally got a chance to experience this for myself. I have been to Tokyo before and was guided by a local, since returning from that trip I have been consistently disappointed by western interpretations of Japanese cuisine as well as the atmosphere offered....

This place has amazing food! I personally don't think the ambiance is as good as what some people are describing. It's dark and hot and some of the tables especially the ones by the corners of the building are really tight. The service is okay but I think it has a strange and pretentious feeling to it. But I can't... More

I've visited here twice so far and will recommend it to friends. Zenkichi provides private seating area in a booth perfect for romantic dining for couples and groups. Price is a little on the higher end but the food & the experience is definitely worth a try. Planning another visit here this month for some Japanese beers & wasabi octopus.
