Came here on a date with my girl and I have to say this is my new go to spot. The decor is really cool and the people are all looking real good. The sake and the vibe was amazing and to top it all off my girl (who is tough on spots) LOVED IT!

I live on the block and this place was once as noisy as all get go. I guess the gangs all gone..Great recession everybody moved back to Mom and Dad's no rent Hotel.
Can not say I'm sad complaints to owner about outside mayhem went unanswered...could careless as long as she was rolling in the Yen....today I hope she is browning her shorts to the almshouse!!! Diego the chef has left Satsko wasn't paying his salary for weeks handing out "bum" checks to employees instead

loud, way overpriced and the bartender was SO rude!!! Dunno why we nicely asked to try a sake and he was rude about it. Foods good but way overpriced. I can tell all of those reviews were written by the owners

This is by far the best bar in the East Village. Go there once, and the bartenders will all know your name! The crowd during the week are real East Villagers and I have gotten to know lots of people just by sitting at the bar. The people are great, the vibe is the best The bartenders are the best! The food is really good, especially the shrimp dumplings and the spicy tuna soy roll.
I have been coming to this place for years and it has only gotten better! Satsko is such a wonderful hostess and makes everyone feel welcome! It is her good vibes that carry this place and my only regret is she is not there often enough (now that her new place has opened)
Go to Satsko's, you won't regret it!

I can't believe this place is still around! With the smarmy service and unoriginal menu, it's surprising - at least the new place is a little bit better - but just a little bit.

Great amotsphere! Small and very open to anyone who is a regualr and 1st timers great service (good looking on the drink tips Warren) didnt get to taste the food but they were kind enough to give us the # to a pizza spot and had it delivered to our table talk about making the customer feel at home very trendy and a def. place to sake bomb yourself away

Such a great feeling to still find places in thg EV where people care about details without crossing the line, good music, good food, nice sake repertoir, and a very funny crowd. Good prices considering the vast variety of food and drinks the space has to offer. My boyfrined and I can't wait to go back to that friendly cozy oasis. One great discovery at last!!

This was my favourite bar when I moved to New York a couple of years ago - cosy, warm, reasonably prices, good food and funky music. But the vibe has completely changed since the owner decided to employ barmen with an obnoxious set of college kid friends who have turned the small bar into a frat party. It's now impossible to make oneself heard over the shrill screams of "shots! shots!", the banging of pints of beer against the counter and the irritating cock-rock blaring out of the stereo. What a shame... used to be such a great place. I gave it a few chances but each time it was the same annoying drill. I've stopped going now, and so have my friends.

OK, dearling.

You've got your response- not from a new regular, but from one that has been frequenting Satskos for over two years. First off. let me say that I think you need a hug and apparently a reach around from Satsko herself. In two years I've NEVER seen underage drinkers in Satskos. The customers in Satsko's, for the most part, live on 7th St., work in the city and have lived in the neighborhood for more than two or three years. Most of them working proffesionals, artists, and the like. Now, admittedly on weekends you're gonna get some of the same bridge and tunnel crowd that you'll get at ANY OTHER EAST VILLAGE BAR NOWADAYS. The great thing about Satskos is that you can grab a great bite of food early in the evening and let it all hang out by the end of it. I understand why people come in on the weekends for birthday parties, etc... More power to them. Personally, I've rarely seen Satsko the past few months as her success at Satskos has allowed her to open another restaurant, but when I do she always gives me a big hug. Did you ever think that maybe she just doesn't like you? I don't usually write these things but I think that your review is totally unjustified and I don't like my great local bar trashed undeservedly.

Pros: Great Crowd, Ambience

Cons: Bit cramped, slow service when crowded

.

I have to say I completely agree with this "ddonner" character. Satsko is indeed an unfriendly, unwelcoming place to be. I noticed that the owner titled her response as "Business Establishment vs Clubhouse" - that's funny, because I know what a business establishment looks like, and she's definitely not running one. It's NOW a clubhouse of underage kids that once catered to, and embodied the eccentricity of the East Village, but no more. And if you can't say a quick "hello" to a regular as he or she pops their head in on their way home from work, then it's time to re-examine what it means to be a business owner - it's about fostering relationships with people, and not the almighty dollar. But nice try, Satsko, you almost convinced us you know how to run a bar. Now go ahead, and have your new "regulars" dispute this truth.

I went to Satsko's for the first time a few weeks ago and then returned last night. Amazing! The bartender remembered my name! Just like Cheers! The sake selection is extensive and if you ask they will do a sake tasting for you. I went last Sunday and last night and they have a new cook named Joan. In between orders she dances with the bartender, chats with the customers, and she and the bartender make for a really great time. The food is amazing and her specials are sooo good! The gyoza are great and the spicy tuna soy rolls are totally delicious. Last night I had the fresh squid with scallions and ginger and could not eat enough!!!!!! I ordered so much food that she packed some of it so I could take it home. Order any of her specials,they are fresh and light and really tasty. She told me they make everything from scratch, the Miso soup, and all of the gyoza. I could tell that much effort and love had gone into the food. Later in the evening a DJ came and it became one big party. Go for dinner, go for sake, or go to hang out and meet people, just go to Satsko's. You can't go wrong.

Pros: great food, great choice of sake

Cons: none

Average food, average choice of sakes, cheesy bartenders with inflated egos, and a drunken owner being rude and overbearing in the corner. She loves you when you're spending all your money, but drop in to just say "hello" then you'll see what this place is really all about.

A sake bar with a most international feel & amazing energy. Satsko, the owner, will welcome you as if you've stepped into her living room. perfect size, easiest place to strike up a conversation with its interesting patrons. Great date spot. Can be mellow, yet I've also seen it turn into quite a kicking party.

Try lychee or melon-infused sake or Sakegria. The fusion fare is divine: tuna tartare, melt-in-your-mouth crepes made w/ mangos/ginger jelly, smoked salmon rolls w/fresh ohba mint, tangy mango carrot salad. Their panasian brunch: a delectable bargain.

The genuine kindness & attention of stellar Bartenders Riccardo and Warren (along w/their eclectic musical tastes), will make you a regular as soon as you walk in the door. And amazingly,they will remember your name the next time you come back.

I heart satskos. there is much magic to be found here again and again.

This is my favorite neighborhood bar and one worth traveling to as well (as many of my friends as far away as LA will attest!) The very friendly staff will win you over in a heartbeat (in addition to the most delicious food--try the spicy tuna rolls). It's the best place for meeting new people--never a dull moment. The sake tastings on Tuesday and Wednesdays are a total bargain, too....

I went to Satsko for the first time last week. I had a great time. I went on Wednesday and I had the sake tasting. It is a great deal, 6 sakes and an appetizer for $20. The best part is you get to pick the sakes you want to try from a long, detailed list. I found the bartenders to be very knowledgeable and friendly. I definitely plan on returning and bringing my friends.

Satsko's should be on everyone's to do list when visiting the East Village.
It's unbelievable to me that someone would not have a good time here, or would think the workers are TOO friendly??? You have got to be kidding me. And what's this about no space for dancing? In New York, you need to get creative with the space you are given, people. Think high. I bring all of my visitors and friends to my sake bomb bar, and we have an awesome adventure each and every time. Warren is my hero.

Satsko's sake bar may be small is size but its BIG in flavor.
From the full, fragrant, fruit infused sakes to the hearty yeast-laden ones, you could spend an evening experiencing all of Satsko's available libations.
And I highly recommend you do.
The bar's intimate layout is great for celebrations and the sake tastings, which include scrumptious sushi, are perfect for after work events.
Impress any date with Satsko's delectable dinner menu which includes Japanese fusion favorites like Carriegiri and nightly specials like Sesame Seared Tuna.
The bartender doubles as dj and will keep you dining in the 'mood!'
And if your lucky enough to sneak a peek in the kitchen you can catch a glimpse of Satsko's talented new chef whose as HOT as the spicy tuna roll he serves.
But don't wait until dinner to enjoy Satsko's service -
-- THEY RECENTLY OPENED FOR BRUNCH --

What a pleasant surprise! Not only the presentation beautiful but the best tuna tartar I've ever tasted. thumb's up!

Having been abroad for a year, I was looking forward to Satskos. A place I would hit after class for a drink, it was no longer the same. I feel very similar to No Thanks - maybe we were there on the same night. An older woman was at the bar with her dog- dont know if she was a new owner or the bartender's friend, but it was inappropriate. I have 2 dogs myself, but to eat at a bar where someones dog has just had its paws is gross. Secondly, I dont know if its the same server, but ours was also too friendly. Just because girls goes out without any guys in the mix, doesnt mean were looking to be verbally manhandled. Whatever happened to Ricardo and Ben? Im hoping it was just a bad night - dont think Ill be back to find out though.

I'm not opposed to spending a lot on a great meal, but this place was overpriced for the portions and quality - I'm pretty sure I could've gone to Jas Mart and made the same thing in my kitchen for less. I was there on a night where people brought in their ipods and played their own music - horrendous. Between our server chugging "sake bombs" with patrons and a crass atmosphere, this place seemed more like an unorganized hang out instead of a respectable establishment. Our server didn't seem to know the first thing about sake, and both my wife and I agreed that he seemed a little too friendly for comfort.

I was dragged here by a friend of mine who lives in the neighborhood. All I have to say is that all these comments must have been written by the 10 regulars who were in the bar the other night. Exactly where are you supposed to dance? There is NO dance floor, the bar is barely big enough to seat the 10 people who were there. I felt unwelcomed, like you were part of the group, or you weren't.

This bar, one of my favorites in the East Village is one of those places that keep surprising me everytime i walk in there. The food is incredible, the drinks always well and happily served and the atmosphere is simply an oasis in the village. As a girl or a man, you will always find somebody fun and interesting to talk to, starting with the bartenders and the owner that give the essential ingredients any place need, warmth, good energy and big drinks!!! I will always come back there...

good place to sit and relax and drink a tea, or stay up late and indulge in some tasty wine, beer or sake.

nice rotation of music, and you can avoid the hipsterathon of the usual east village spots.

try the infused sake or the nigori, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

try the infused sake or the nigori, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

It is a magical place where you feel at home no matter where you are from. The minute I stepped into the bar, I felt at home. Everyone is very warm but not intruding. I highly recommend the bar if you are in the mood for human connections. A
nd top it all, the food there is very unique and delectible, music eclectic, soothing interior and flower galore. I think Satsko is a place where you can experience the five senses. I definitely go back again and again.

satsko's is hands down the best bar i have ever been too. granted, it lacks a hard liquor license, but to be honest i don't really think it needs one, because satsko's isn't the kind of bar where one feels the need to get so drunk. to me, drinking at satsko's is the way drinking was meant to be done. from the moment you sit down, someone is always in the middle of an interesting conversation with one of the bars fabulous bartenders. everyone is drinking leisurely and enjoying themselves, which is such a god-send from frequently bars where everyone is slugging down drinks to get enough courage to talk to one another. here, starting up a conversation is the easiest thing in the world, and the bartenders are hysterically funny. great sense of humor at this place, and you can really see the love.

Small but open Japanese bar/tapas joint. Very local feel, almost like a clubhouse, but very welcoming to outsiders. The tapas were good and not exclusively Japanese, and the service friendly and helpful. I'd go again and recommend it to others.

With an exceptionally friendly staff and a warm ambience, Satsko's satifies the senses. As cheesy as it sounds it is true. They have a great menu and a cozy atmosphere, not to mention an eclectic collection of regulars. Everyone is welcome and you feel that once you enter. It's hidden between B & C, but worth your while to find it.

Going to Satsko's is like going to a very familiar place. Not because its like everything else but more like its very welcoming. Whether I'm there with a friend or by myself, I always feel like I'm welcome.
