“Just good japanese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

For dinner, we start with vegetable tempura, they are good, with the miso soup.

Friends try the beef speciality, and me the fish. Plates are larges, like the bilt.

In resume, we sould prefer less quantity but better quality, we didn't find the japanese taste in their plate. Service is not exceptionnal. We paid 200 USD for 3 with a wine bottle and 2 Sake.

The little zen garden in the backroom is cute, maybe try for lunch.

“See you at Seo”

Had lunch at Seo and was surprised by this great little piece of Japan in new York.

Everything was great and will be back again to try some other delicious dish.

“great hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

Have you ever been sick of NY attitude and the fact that you have to fight your way to get what you want for just about everything, from grocery shopping at convenience stores around the corner to buying clothes on 5th Avenue?

SEO is one of those places that I can enjoy being catered for. The food is great. The atmosphere is cozy. The service is great. I can enjoy my moment with good food and good company without being rushed. The view of the little Japanese garden in the back is very plesant.
