What Insiders Are Saying
Sen Sakana is Peruvian-Japanese place in Midtown that might be good for a business lunch, although you don't really have to spend your money here.
Promptly seated and greeted with a hot towel. Food came out hot and quickly but didn't overlap courses. Cool way of doing to-go once your meal has finished. Excellent spot close to all the action
Our waitress was very inexperienced. She kept repeating our requests. Also, we were seated in the back near a large party while the restaurant had many available seats in the main dining room. Overall, there was no value as the food was mediocre.
Food excellent, but serving pace way too fast. After just 35 minutes we found ourselves confronted with the main course although we had ordered an additional starter course and explicitly confirmed that it would arrive before the main. After the main course was sent back to the kitchen the pace slowed down markedly, and it was a quite lovely evening for our 26th anniversary. We greatly appreciated the restaurant’s recognition of that anniversary. Will go back again!
Awesome Japanese and Peruvian fusion. Reminded me of sushi samba but more elegant.
Awesome! Loved everything about it. We will be returning next time we travel to Manhattan.
I made reservations on February 1st for Valentine's Day. Some would say I was late on making reservations, but I was happy enough to get a table at Sen Sakana. Nevertheless, two weeks later I arrived at the restaurant with my girlfriend to enjoy a dinner. This was both of ours first time here. The music was good, the lighting was great, the set-up phenomenal, and there was a pre-fix meal set up for the occasion. My partner and I both enjoyed ourselves, the food, and the time together at Sen Sakana. I would definitely recommend it for a dinner out with a loved one, or with friends.
Igmel took great care of us, as his recommendations were spot on the whole night. Everything was beyond amazing and we cannot wait to return!
Interesting menu and something for everyone. Sushi was good but next time I will try more of the Peruvian inspired dishes as I think that would be more of a differentiator.
Great place. I had to rearrange my reservation because my meeting ended late and Sen Sakana was able to coordinate accordingly. Besides that, the atmosphere was great and the food is excellent! I will definitely go back.
Delicious food ,amazing atmosphere
The food was simply bad. Only being hungry and in a rush I was able to finish it, choking on the amount of wasabi they put inside the rice. On the bright side, the server and the manager did care about my bad experience and offered a free drink (not the one I was drinking though).
Absolutely not worth it.
I’m very disappointed with my choice of a place for dinner as I relied on the good reviews this place has.
Excellent service and the gratuity is included. Food is hit or miss. Some dishes were exceptional. Others were disappointing. I think the strengths lie in the appetizers and maybe the sushi; the mains and desserts were the weaker part of the menu. We loved the bar tender and our server - very friendly and professional. Ok value for the price.
Love the marriage between the Japanese and Peruvian cultures. Best ceviche I’ve had outside Peru. Outstanding, friendly, knowledgeable service.
Excellent food and service. We had a great time. Highly recommend thi place.
The food and service is amazing! I have recommended Sen Sakana to all of my friends and will be back again!
Service was amazing, very attentive people ... very good good and exceptional drinks
Outstanding as always.....only annoyance was having to ask for the restaurant week menu. We all know it’s going on, so why not put out all the menus being offered for the night?
Fantastic food and service. A great find in midtown.
Nice happy hour. Good cocktails. Great sushi.
The food was really awesome. We did the Restaurant week option and everything we ate was superb. the Fried Pork Loin was to DIE!
Our Server was awesome! She has a house in Crete that she tries to go to every summer ( i can't remember her name) So friendly and knowledgable about the menu and we felt pampered.
Make a reservation as soon as you can and go!
As usual a lovely place with extraordinary food and service
We love the cold starters Spicy Tuna and the Ceviche Classico . They were so fresh and appetizing. We also ordered the Unitate, Lima Futo, and Maguro Tartar from the Nikkei Maki menu. They were so fresh that we could taste each ingredient. We just love them. We didn't order much cooked food from the kitchen except for the wagyu beef on a skewer. It was exceptionally good but the price tag is high at $18 for a skewer. The food is pricey but pretty good quality though and tips included. Overall a pleasant experience and would love to go back.
Service was amazing. Food was impeccable. Flavor explosions everwhere.
Great food, and they had some of the best if not the best customer service I've ever experienced.
Everything was great
Food was good with interesting takes of fusion cuisine. Service was good, they are a non tipping restaurant.
This is my new favorite place to dine— everyone was warm, professional, accommodating, the food was fantastic, just an all-around relaxed, lovely experience.
I liked the food but they need to get better appetizer and also they need to have better drinks being made at this location if they can focus on those two things this place will be great. I did not like all the leafy appitizers they were offering
My daughter ordered a tuna dish but it was not good. I liked the restaurant but this thing was bad. The appetizers were great.
Worsen from my first time
Great NYC experience. This was our fourth time here. We had a friend in town who wanted to have something unique. This fits the bill. The food is so unique and surprisingly delicious. The staff are experts at the menu and wine list. This is also a tip-free restaurant. They pay the wait staff well and don’t require or expect tipping.
very unique fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine.
Fantastic experience. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. We enjoyed our meal very much. The flavors were delicate and delicious! We will definitely be back and will tell all our friends.
Sen Sakana is an amazing venue. Excellent variety of enticing and delicious menu items, all of which are beautifully presented. Service is professionally presented and suggestions are always right on. Great pre-theatre venue.
Have been several times, for business lunches, dinner with friends from out of town, date night and a special dinner with the family. Food always delicious and never disappoints. Service top notch.
Fantastic food here. It's a no tip restaurant, so the prices of the food will be higher than you are used to.
The food was amazing! The unique flavor combinations made every bite delicious.
Nice place with good service
Sen Sakana is unique in every regard. Having lived in Japan for two years, we were intrigued to try Peruvian/Japanese fusion. We very certainly not disappointed. The edamame with Peruvian corn was a delight. The gyoza presentation and flavors were outstanding. My husband had the salmon belly and loved it. The unitate was a culinary experience. The uni tasted like it was just harvested from the sea and the scallops with Shiho an exquisite combination. The wrapping was unique. The kombucha wrapper and the rice was so thin that the palate could experience all of the flavor combinations without too much filler. The service is impeccable, particularly considering it is a no tipping establishment. . Oishi and subarashi !!!! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
Consistently interesting, great tasting food. Service this last time especially good. Almost nothing on the menu is in any way "basic" so don't go if you don't have at least a small adventuresome streak.
