Shinsei Restaurant - Traditional Sushi / Contemporary Asian Kitchen

When we came up with the concept of Shinsei we wanted a place that reflected our lifestyles: sometimes we went out to dinner with our kids and sometimes with our friends and husbands. We wanted to create a place where a night out with the kids didn’t mean food adults had to suffer through or a night out with the parents didn’t mean a stuffy place where kids had to wear a scratchy clip-on tie. Shinsei is just that: a neighborhood gathering place with date night appeal.

But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

    Straight up delish!! Love the new rolls — tuna crunch and scallop w/truffle. Vibe was super festive and Tammy is always pure perfection with service. Loved our Shinsei evening!!

    Unfortunately, for the first time ever, Shinsei failed to meet their high standards of excellence. I got the glazed chicken dinner and it was not befitting of being served at Shinsei. I'm sure this rare slip will disappear.

    Celebrated our son’s birthday here. We prefer to sit on the restaurant side vs the bar side. It’s very close quarters in the bar and a different dining experience. Evie was a great server and very attentive to our needs, food was excellent as always.

    Had an absolute phenomenal experience as always. The food/ambience/experience was great but most importantly the service made the night. This was my 2nd time having Madison as our server and she was absolutely phenomenal the entire evening. Very attentive while not being overbearing (fam and I don’t get out often) her drink/food recommendations were absolutely amazing and overall she was just very sweet & made the night a memorable evening. Will definitely be back to see her.

    The food was really good and I liked the vibe of the restuaraunt. However, I made a reservation about a month in advance and we had to sit on the sofas at the upstairs bar area because they had lost our reservation. Still will be back though.

    I enjoyed the experience overall. Service was really good. We ordered the crispy rice tuna, the dragon lady salmon and tuna roll, shrimp dumplings, grilled oysters. All very good. We got the bread pudding for dessert but I wasn’t really impressed with it. The blood orange cocktail was ok. My husband’s old fashion was great. I would go back.

    From checking in to the staff taking our order everybody was really nice. We had the volcano and livers lane sushi. It was excellent. The spicy edamame was really good. If you don’t eat a lot of Chile don’t order it as you won’t enjoy it we had the bread pudding for dessert. It was very very good. We only had 1 dessert for the 4 of us and it was just the right amount. I would definitively go back. Make sure you make reservations as the place was very busy (that didn’t compromised the service). Congratulations to the manager as everybody seem to be enjoying their job and interaction with clients.

    I have eaten at Shinsei 20+ times. This past time made me wonder if I will ever be back -- I understand Friday night is one of the most busy times to enjoy this restaurant but the service was so sub par I don't know how to justify coming here again! Food is great, but we waited for drinks 30 minutes after we sat down at our table. We waited 20 minutes to be seated when we had a reservation! There was a fan directly over our table and I had to try to enjoy the chaotic dinner with a freezing cold blast of wind over me the entire meal. It was just awful in every respect. I say that as someone who has loved this restaurant over the years and wishes it would all be perfect. Come here during the week, do not bother on weekends.
