At Sekisui Midtown, sushi chefs don't just push the envelope; they put the envelope through the paper shredder. Chefs are encouraged to show off their creativity and listen to customer’s ideas, creating sushi rolls that can’t be found anywhere else. Also, purists will be delighted with the exhaustive lineup of nigiri sushi - perfectly sliced fish atop a mound of rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar and a touch of sake. The restaurant’s fresh fish is flown in several times a week from locations such as Hawaii, Louisiana, and Los Angeles. There’s something to please everyone. The extensive menu covers lots of familiar Japanese cuisine territory with teriyaki, tempura and udon noodles. Lively and noisy might not be typical descriptions of most Japanese restaurants, but the words fit Sekisui Midtown. As it is always full of familiar faces, Sekisui is a popular neighborhood hang-out.

"Energetic" is a VERY stupid term for a noise level. It is NOT a synonym for "Very Noisy," which is what this restaurant is. I don't feel energized by noise, I just don't go back to a place where I can't hold a conversation.

That said, everything was excellent until the end, when we needed to leave so we wouldn't be late for our movie (we had told the server earlier what time we needed to leave) but we couldn't catch the server's eye and I had to go find him and tell him to bring boxes for leftovers and our checks.

As always: friendly and quick service. Sashimi and sushi was very good - the rice seemed this time a little bit to hard, but the freshwater eal was delicious!

Service has gotten terrible. Food is mediocre now. I guess that's all due to a change in staff but we will not be going back. Our server David wasnt very helpful either. I came out the restroom and heard him bragging about how he added gratuity to our $277 ticket. All that bragging because he didnt do much checking up on our party of 6. Our reservation was at 8 and we got there on time. We didnt leave until almost 11pm! That's how slow service was. This guy didnt even know how to split the bill 3 ways! Anyways hope he enjoyed the gratuity he didnt earn.

We have been enjoying Sekisui for over 15 years now.
Always great service, awesome Rolls & Sushi.

They have ruined our choice dessert - the Ice cream Tempura by changing the recipe.
I hope that they will revert back to the original.

I brought family to experience and a couple orderes kabobs. They took over 50 minutes to arrive. The servers also seemed new to the menu. The sushi and lamb chops a few of us ordered tasted great, though.

Food was mediocre at best. Very little sushi for the price. Our server was not present most of the time and forgot drinks and sent someone else who didn’t know what she was doing to get the payment for the other half of our tab, we weren’t even sure if she was a hostess or random stranger coming to just grab our money. Haven’t been there in years but will not be returning.

We regularly dine at Sekisui Midtown with outstanding service and food. However, we were disappointed in the service and the quality of food this evening. Service was somewhat lackluster, staff were confused and the head chef and sous chef or not present this evening. This is a great restaurant and we will be back we chalk it up to being an off night.

Overall a great experience! The service was friendly, but a bit sloppy. Our table was wobbly and even when the waitress noticed she didn't offer to fix the table or move us. Of course we didn't ask her too as we just laughed about it, but she should have taken the initiative to offer. We are a laidback couple so it didn't bother us or ruin our experience at all; we had a very nice dinner! A heads-up to the restaurant to consider providing a bit more attentive service.

My friend and I had a lovely and relaxed evening here. Service was prompt, and the food was very tasty. We really enjoy the variety of sushi rolls offered here- there are so many different ones to try. We always enjoy dining at Sekisui.

I had specifically asked for my rolls to be held until after I had my two appetizers. Everything came at once with a lame explanation from the server. the rolls were room temp by the time eaten. Had the pyramid and the yellow tail with jalapeño appetizers. Both were quite good.

The server seemed distracted. I asked for a fork and she tried to deliver to the ladies next to me. When she realized it was for me, she almost put it thru the hair of the lady next to me when handing it over.

We had a 6:45 reservation and did not get seated until 7:20. The hostess was not helpful and did not do anything to help our long wait. It was very upsetting. We used to be frequent dinners but I don’t think we will be back for awhile.

The place was quiet. We sat at the sushi bar. First, I need to me til that we eat here several times a month and our beer we order is NEVER come. Always like warm. The bar was nasty to lean on. We had to clean it with our cloth napkin. When we wiped it the first time, it turned out white napkin brown. Also the wines bathroom needs improvement. The sink is nasty, the was look like they have been patched several times from where different things were mounted and the removed. Also the sink looked like it was about to fall of the wall
