Sushi Seki Review

mikka | Jan 27, 200708:10 AM     3

Having read some very positive reviews, we headed to Sushi Seki last night for a late night sushi dinner as a reward for a long week. A little mistakenly, we figured due to the late hour (we got there a little after 10pm) and the freezing cold, that a reservation wouldn't be necessary. We waiting for 10 minutes if even, but a reservation would've secured us a better table either at or near the sushi bar. Instead we were ushered into the very full back room.

After having trouble deciding on a bottle of sake, the waiter graciously brought us a tasting of 3 to choose from. For dinner we decided to stick strictly with sushi and rolls, ordering the fried oyster roll, yellowtail and scallion and 2 pieces of japanese mackerel (at the waiters suggestion), bonito, toro, uni, octopus and yellowtail. All fresh and delicious, we especially loved the japanese mackerel and the uni. Our waiter forgot our order of edamame and they had stopped serving the yellowtail and scallion roll, both a blessing in disguse, so we'd have more room for the sushi. We ordered another round of the japanese mackerel, uni and a spicy tuna roll.

Everything was delicious but I think next time, along with securing a spot at the bar, we'd stick with the sushi and sashimi. With the sushi omakase starting at $50, that might be the best option to taste a variety of fish. The service had it's little hiccups, but in their defence it looked as though it had been a busy long night. Our waitier was professional and helpful with our selection and other servers were willing to jump in and help us when ours could not be found.
