Zenkichi has some great things going for it, including no kids allowed, as well as the semi-private dining areas for groups of 2 and 4. Diverse menu, mostly excellent! Also a fantastic selection of sakes. It's slightly pricey and slightly pretentious, so not an every-other-week dinner spot for my taste, but certainly worth experiencing.

Really...they do NOT which is very irritating in this day & age. Yes they have an ATM onsite but who would trust that?? Then they were not very friendly, they took way too long to serve meals and the entrees were just average. No reason to go back.

The setting is absolutely great with small tables that make you feel you are in a private room. we did the tasting menu with the sake pairing. The sake was great. the dishes are small but there are so many of them. Everything just tasted great and the combination with the sake just takes it to another level. Great service,... More

Zenkichi is very stylish and pricey. It is not the type of Japanese restaurant that serves California rolls. We live in the area and like to go there on special occasions. The setting is very intimate and the dining experience is unique and flavorful. There is a 8-course tasting menu which is about $75 per person and is offered with... More

Zenkichi is a Japanese small plate place. It's got great food and very efficient, polite service, in a quiet, private atmosphere. Every table is its own little booth with pull down, semi-see through curtains which adds to the privacy. They have an omakase menu, which along with its sake pairing, is an amazing meal from start to finish. You get... More

My first Omakase in my life. I read one of the PR about this restaurant and then I searched about. The Omakase here is $75, tasting menu with 8 courses. It usually costs over $100 in the city. So I decided to try it out. The restaurant is very cozy. Very nice seating and they do respect your privacy. These... More

Zenkichi offers a very relaxed and intimate atmosphere in which you can enjoy a plethora of fine foods. The dishes are made with attention for detail and offer the typical freshness, both in ingredients as in taste, that you expect from Japanse foods. The tasting menu is a highly recommended culinary voyage. Be aware that the coziness and confined tablets... More

This hidden Zen like atmosphere sets the mood for the delicious authentic Japanese dishes served in semi-private booths. The duck salad and cod were our favorite of the four dishes we shared. I also tried the basic sake flight which was really good too. Next time we will try the 8 course meal which they said takes up to two... More
