We came here our last night in New York and it was a great way to end our trip. The food was lovely and the atmosphere was brilliant. You eat in your own secluded booths. The sake was quite expensive so we stuck to just a couple of glasses, but you can have a different sake depending on the course.

you know you are in an authentic Japanese Restaurant when instead of playing kitchJapanese background music, they are playing straight-ahead Jazz. Every booth is private. The service is excellent. The sake list is comprehensive without being overwhelming. The food is sublime. And a trip to this place gives one a chance to be updated on Wiiliamsburg's renaissance ( even if... More

The food is creative and delicious - and yes lots of small plates so you will spend some $$ and might leave hungry. But if you are adventurous this is one to visit. I can't even comment on the decor because it is dark and narrow and once you get to your booth you are behind a pull down shade... More

4 of us had the omakase, 2 if whom are solid firemen and nobody left hungry. Recommend going with others as with any prix fixe menu, it will be a couple of hours and it's a great way to spend time. The sake menu is extensive and those I was with say it was very good. Removed a star since... More

Zenkichi has a rustic and exotic feel to it with intimate booths privately secluded with bamboo blinds. You press a button to get your server. The food is exquisitely prepared and to die for. A true gem! I went for business, but I hope to be back for Date Night Nirvana.

The inside and outside décor of Zenkichi restaurant is definitely not going to be to everyone’s liking. From the outside, it doesn’t even look like a restaurant, and has no sign with the restaurant’s name on it. Inside, just like many people have already mentioned here, it is very dark, and you have to constantly watch your steps as you... More

Went there with my wife and 8 month old baby at 8:30pm on a Friday night. Staff was very diligent and food was delicious. Great experience overall. We were seated in a little corner at the street level next to a party of 12. Quite luckily we managed to be done before they arrived. Just read previous reviews and staff... More

Not like the pics on the web at all! We went here for a romantic dinner and were disappointed by the uncomfortable seating. We sat in a cubicle which was the size of a broom closet. The seating was uncomfortable; it was not just tiny but we also had to sit next to each other as opposed to across from... More

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
