“Fantastic sushi/sashimi bar”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

There is a small sushi bar where you can oversee your meal being made and talk with the chefs. No Dragon Rolls here. No soy sauce on the table. Each piece is a perfect cut of fish delicately seasoned with a touch of soy, fresh grated wasabi, lemon, and/or sea salt as the chef suggests. Half the clientele are Asian which says a lot about the place. Great, modern atmosphere. The staff could not be more attentive and polite. A must see restaurant if you enjoy high-end sushi

“Average Sushi + Ridiculous Cost = skip!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Ive had better sushi in DC and in Chicago, maybe even in Miami. I was disappointed for sure. Maybe if the plates werent made out of marble the price would better match the service and quality. Skip this place but if you go the tasting menu at $125 is sadly the best value in the place. Better to skip im sorry to say. Lone bright spot was the tuna 4ways appetizer.

“Service was horrible”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

The place was really nice. My friends and I had the tasting menu and it was amazing. The fish were really fresh and the fish soup was quite unique. I would definitely go for the food. But the service we got was horrible. I should say only our server was horrible. Gave us attutide when we asked him to repeat what was on the first course for the tasting menu. Never came to check how we were doing during our meal. Not sure if it's a Monday and the service was worst. My friend has been there other times and this has never happened. We were really pissed when we were done our meal. Hopefully we will not get the same server next time.

“Must try”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

All the food we tried at 15 East was wonderful. The flight of yellowtail, salmon sashimi, tuna sushi from the bar and from the kitchen, smoked pork belly app and wild salmon plate. The restaurant is quaint and romantic. Can't wait to try it again.

“Still one of my favorite NYC Restaurants”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This small 30 seat restaurant is a neighborhood gem with a warm, quiet ambiance and some of the best pan-asian food in the city. Their lobster and uni risotto is one of the best dishes I've ever had, their sushi is impossibly fresh, and even their desserts, a common point of weakness for Asian restaurants, was wonderful. Expensive, but well worth the price.
