I absolutely love this place, firstly for its food, secondly for its friendly staff that provides a great service. I live close by, so I have been going to Suteishi since they opened, but I really want to let everyone know what a great place it is. Jimmy, the head sushi chef, will wow you with an amazing array of rolls and plates. Just give him a chance, sit a the sushi bar and tell him a little about what you like, he will get your taste almost insistently and make you this amazing food that is exactly what you craved. Believe me, I've seen him do this to many of my friends and he always nails their tastes. The seaweed salad is amazing, everything is just so tasty. I highly recommend this spot for a great sushi and check out the sushi bar with Jimmy!

Pros: Great rolls, great staff and sushi chef

Cons: None

I love the sushi rolls here, the appetizers are great, and it's not pretentious. I go all the time. The service is always so friendly and it's nice to sit outside when the weather is good. The prices are reasonable for the quality you're getting. I've eaten at many high-end, highly-rated sushi places and Suteishi has now become the standard I compare them with....it's still my favorite!

Pros: Great food, great service, never crowded

Cons: I wish they had a lunch deal

.

Where to begin? Suteishi features some of the freshest sushi and sashimi I??ve experienced along with unique fusion rolls and an extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. My waiter recommended a cold, sweet sake that blended perfectly with my sashimi. I found their food to be authentic and, surprisingly, homemade. I was shocked to learn that the miso soup, fusion sauces, and even their low sodium soy sauce is all made right at the restaurant! My friend enjoyed her hot food but I believe the sushi bar to be Suteishi??s real strength. I was hesitant to try the Suteishi Pearl specialty roll after learning that it had fried oysters but it was AMAZING. Afterwards, walk a block to the water??s edge for the best view of the Brooklyn Bridge the city has to offer.

Pros: The Fish, Location

Cons: Can get very crowded

This place is all about the people!! You have to sit at the sushi bar because you will meet some of the greatest people in NY. Jimmy and Jacky really take care of you and make amazing dishes: it's like art. We took pictures of all the plates.

We've been to Suteishi before and had their special rolls, but when you sit at the sushi bar, we got to try a tuna ravioli special. After that you can't help but trust in the chef's. it was really wonderful

my husband and I went to South Street Seaport to catch the midnight "Absinthe" show at the Speigel Tent on a Saturday and were looking for a place to eat in the area. We found Suteishi after walking around the slip for a minute. After the debate of do you want sushi, i want sushi, do you?...we had sushi. and were very satisfied. The service was excellent! the menu is not too extensive but well balanced. I mentioned i had a cold that day and they brought me camomile tea. The food was delicuous and well presented. the "pearl" roll was excellent with fried oysters inside, however i wish they didnt use immitation crab on top because i am allergic. But the menu did specify that if you have allergies they will be happy to accommodate you in any way but i didn't ask, i just took it off. The special rolls averaged around $15 for 8 pieces, which can get pricey if you are super hungry but once in a while a splurge for a great experience is worth it! They have indoor and outdoor seating, a big clean bathroom, and relaxed candle lit, yet very modern decor.

Pros: great service, yummy rolls!! ample parking all around!

This place came highly recommended to me, but I have to be honest that I wasn't that impressed. I thought the sushi was average at best. The seaweed salad we got was practically frozen and I didn't feel like the rolls or pieces had much flavor. Maybe I had it on an off night, but there are lots of other sushi places I would rather go back to.

Had a great time here. Everything was delicious, though I wish the spicy shrimp appetizer was bigger. The rolls were also interesting. We were also sitting by the area where they opened their "garage doors" so we had a nice view and had a nice breeze. Would come back here again. Good food, attentive service and good location. I was satisified.

This place is really great.. the food is impeccable and the service is even better. The beef negimaki was very tasty and the crispy shrimp just perfect. This is by far my new favorite Japanese restaurant. It's a bit pricey, but definitely one of the better options in the area.

Pros: delicious

Cons: none

The location of the restaurant is cool. It's next to cobblestone streets near the Seaport, which makes it a great find for tourists a bit off the beaten path. The sides open up completely so it has the feeling of an outdoor restaurant (kind of).

The sushi is good but not great. A bit pricey for not-so-fabulous sushi.

I live right above this restuarant so I watched for weeks in anticipation of it's opening... My favorite part is the decor. A beautifully lit wooden wall sets the backdrop and the garage style glass windows open completely for a roomy and airy feel. They put a lot of care and effort into the surroundings and their presentation which I appreciate, and it's not pretentious at all -- everyone who works there is friendly and you are made to feel completely comfortable and casual.

Onto the food, I love their special rolls, the Red Dragon being my favorite! The ingredients are always extremely fresh and used very well. The hot rocks are fun for children and out of towners. Soups and salads are good and I also love the miso eggplant. The only thing I wish was that the menu was a little bigger, I think in a place like this it would be great to take some menu risks and try new ideas. Granted they just opened and the menu has been evolving, I believe they are still figuring it out... But what a great start!

Well, the people certainly were nice, and the decor was sort of interesting, but I went there for
SUSHI. And the sushi was just average. The rice was just undercooked and underflavored, a subtle but important aspect of sushi. It seems as though they were more interested in creating clever new rolls rather than serving the freshest -- an absolute must for a sushi bar!! --t and tastiest classical sushi. i am getting the idea that when a resataraunt is highly rated, sometimes it is not specifically for the food, but how trendy it is. This is a trendy restaurant. In line with that, they made somewhat of a big thing of their sake, but in fact they are not particularly knowledgeable in that regard, and again, the quality was only average. Overall, my visit there was a disappointment.

I've been to more than my share of sushi joints and I must say that I was not disappointed with this one. I celebrated my 27th birthday here a little while ago. Our waitress was extremely friendly, the food was delicious, the ambiance was very nice, and the manager was very personable. She was very interested to know what we thought of everything and was open to suggestions. Most places don't even give a damn as long as they get your money. The view of the bridge was also a nice touch. I went with 3 friends (just imagine 4 fat Korean dudes), we ate til our stomachs almost burst and drank enough sake until our bladders almost popped all for a very reasonable price. I would definitely bring a date, go back with friends again, or even have a meal by myself at the sushi bar.

Tried lunch here with some co-workers last month and the food was fresh and delicious! The place was beautiful with great views of the Brooklyn Bridge. I decided I would try Suteishi again for dinner. I chose Valentine's Day and it worked out perfect! My girlfriend totally enjoyed the entire evening - we were personally greeted by the staff with our names on the table placecards. The menu was even personalized with our names and date on it. (my girlfriend even saved the menu as a momentum of our first Valentine's Day together!) We ordered from the Valentine's Day special menu and everything was fdelicious - even better than my prior lunch here! Suteishi is an upbeat, romantic place with great ambiance. My girlfriend loved that the dining room was set up with red bows on the wine glasses and red heart candles! The candlelighting was magnificent reflecting off the glass windows. The hosts and waitstaff were super friendly and accomodating and made us feel so comfortable! I highly recommend Suteishi because they provide a great experience - from the casual lunches to the "special" dinners.

The first thing that caught my eye at Suteishi was the ambiance. The restaurant had a very modern, sleek look that I really loved, not to mention the sushi bar and attractive waiting staff. The service was quick and my waiter was extremely friendly and knowledge. The food was also a fantastic surprise, especially the sashimi which was VERY FRESH. Overall, a very very satisfying experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This new restaurant is definitely worth the trip downtown. From the decor to the food to the staff, all derserves a rating of 10 in my opinion. I love japanese food and it was especially nice to see some unique dishes on the menu that I have not seen at other japanese restaurants. The grilled eggplant is one I have to specifically mention, the sauce was to die for! The only small negative I have is that the dishes are a little on the small side so you have to order more to satisfy a hungry stomach!

Shopping at the South Street Seaport has never been a better experience!! I dined at Suteishi this past weekend and was very impressed. The atmosphere was extremely welcoming and cozy with a modern / contemporary decor and a breath taking glass view of the Brooklyn Bridge, which is suitable for a night out with a crowd or a date. The appetizer "Hot Fried Shrimps" was delicious (I recommend it highly)!! The "Sushi / Sashimi" platters were fresh and presented gorgeously. The "Fried Bananas" dessert portion was a little small but unforgettable flavors will definitely make my trip worthwhile for second, third, fourth, etc. time, even in the freezing weather.

Thanks to all the reviews of Suteishi, I decided to give lunch a try with some co-workers. We were extremely pleased with our "experience". The waitress explained that the menu offered tried and true favorite dishes in addition to new, cool and interesting selections. We went with her suggestions and had a variety of the traditional sushi and sashimi but tried many unique, interesting types of rolls. My co-worker is not a sushi eater but fully enjoyed the eggplant, filet mignon hot rock (he cooked it himself on a "hot rock") and the udon soup. The service was great - extremely friendly and helpful. The manager/hostess was very personable and came over several times to see how we were doing. I highly recommend Suteishi for the excellent food and friendly down-to-earth atmosphere. Although we enjoyed the service and atmosphere of dining in the restaurant we are definitely ordering in from Suteishi next time because it is getting too cold to trek over to Front Street.

This is a great restaurant for NYU students dorming at Water St. I have eaten at many of the other restaurants in the area, was sick of slow, rude service, and typical American food. Suteishi offers a pleasant and welcome alternative, adds to the diversity of the neighborhood and is less than a 5 minute walk from the dorms. I visited for the first time a month ago, and have already returned for the sushi and the hot rocks, as well as the relaxing decor and attentive and friendly staff. I thought the sushi was delicious and fresh, and didn?t find the rice hard at all. I always order dragon rolls at Japanese restaurants, and these were one of the best I?ve had. I also had a roll which I think was called the Happy New Year roll, which was unusual and a great combination of flavors, although I?m not sure if it?s still available. While the menu could be bigger, and I would enjoy more choices, I would much rather choose from a few dishes and know they will be satisfying and fresh, than order from a huge menu with only a few good items. I plan to try some of the salad, soup, and noodles dishes when I return. Suteishi is one of the only restaurants in the area that I will leave my dorm room for instead of ordering delivery.

i read great reviews about this place (on and off citysearch) so i decided to go for dinner. from the time i stepped in to the time i left, everything was cute. the decor, the space, the table settings... very chelsea. ok, now about the food. i sincerely expected better. one reviewer mentions that the menu could be a little bigger. i agree! all of the items on the menu are things i have tried at some point or another at other restaurants (avocado salad, fried oysters, all of the sushi and roll items, the ceviche, fried banana with caramel dessert, etc.). they were delicious, but not any more than other similarly priced to lower priced japanese restaurants in the city like the ones in the east village. the decor may not be the same, but i believe there are many more "unique" and delicious menu items at the restaurants on or around st. mark's. maybe i'm biased because i'm japanese. i can't say the sushi was decent. the slabs of fish were placed precariously on tiny flat pieces of hard and cold rice. the fish was good, though. all of this is really unfortunate, because the host was extremely attentive and the wait staff was friendly. i wish them the best.

Suteishi is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. Their fried oysters, orange dragon roll and filet mignon "hot rock" dishes are scrumptuous. The hostess is a doll and the service is always impeccable. Since the restaurant is mainly windows, you get a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge (quite stunning in the evening) and the ambience is cozy and friendly, yet sophisticated. The atmosphere is versatile enough for a night out with friends, families with kids or even those looking to enjoy a delicious meal with a loved one.

This was a random choice of the evening... and I was impressed!!! Everything was fantastic, the sushi (oh so buttery), the cooked goods, the desserts and the staff. We were treated like family from the start - and that says alot for a japanese restaurant. I swear I could have sat and ate all night here. I absolutely loved the salmon cerviche and the fried oysters - all recommended by the host. It was great, a definite repeat!!

A great place to meet friends and have a nice little sushi dinner! The decor is great, the service is wonderful, and I know I will definitely go back! My only input is the possible future expansion of the sushi menu. Compared to other sushi restaurants, the quality is great, but could be more creative. I HIGHLY recommend the hot stone when you go!!!!

This restaurant has the makings of a good Japanese neighborhood restaurant and magnet for nearby Seaport visitors. The seafood was top shelf as were the salads. My husband and I shared the chef's select sashimi of the day, which was outstanding. Next time we're each having our own fried oysters instead of sharing - they melted in our mouths! The noodle soups were tasty, but could have been a bit larger.

The modern setting, friendly staff and casual vibe were all welcming.

Suteishi is the hottest sushi restaurant in the Financial District. With notably fresh sushi and sashimi and a wide variety of original roll creations, the rotating sushi staff (including the wide renown Tanaka Shigenori) never fails to amaze me. This place stands out as a quality sit down restaurant, suitable for family dinners, get-togethers, romantic dates, or a nice refreshing getaway. Fresh fish, tasty tapas, and high quality sake, beer and wine will draw you in. But the outstanding service and beautiful interior design will have you coming back for more.

Pros: outstanding service, friendly faces, cool sushi chefs, delicious food

Cons: small tables

I am so excited to have found an excellent sushi restaurant on Peck Slip. One of the first things you notice about Suteishi is the decor. The "woven walls" add a unique and very classy touch and the overall decoration of the space is beautiful - check out the bathroom! The staff is very friendly and attentive, and I was impressed with their interest in creating a fun and relaxing environment. I was unfamiliar with some of the menu items - ie: salmon ceviche & red dragon roll, but our waitress was able to explain the menu well. She even suggested a few of her favorites, which was helpful. Our table ordered per her recommendation and were extremely pleased with our dishes. For tapas plates, the fried oysters are a MUST! The seaweed salad was also delicious. All the sushi was fresh and beautifully presented. Good uni is hard to find, but they have it at this restaurant! The alcohol list (which includes sake, wine and beer?) is not extensive, but in my eyes, reasonably priced. Make sure to check out the daily specials, which were not actively shared by our waitress, so ask! Although I was a bit chilly sitting by the large glass garage doors, the amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge made up for it. Our overall dining experience at this restaurant was an A+.

A new, much needed and tastefully decorated Japanese restaurant at the Seaport with melt in mouth sashimi and other unusual dishes. This was my fifth visit and having tried most of the menu, I would highly recommend the deep fried oysters (could eat this every night), seaweed salad lightly seasoned with ginger, lip smacking eggplant, dragon rolls, seafood topped noodles, the chef's special sashimi platters to share (rivaling the best I've tasted in Lower Manhattan) and the thinly sliced filet mignon that you can sizzle at the table on a hot rock. Being a chinaware nut, the assortment of serving platters added immensely to the dining experience.

It's the kind of place where you can come for a range of appetizers with drinks or a more elaborate spread to share without denting the wallet too much. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff is friendly and attentive if a bit slow in the beginning with a full house. The teacups are continuously refilled. The customers ranged from families with strollers to couples and singles at the sushi bar or in the dining room.

Don't leave without ordering the unusual mochi desserts which come in threes - order two coffee and one mango, the vanilla mochi was bland. There is also a range of exotic ice creams and fried bananas.

I missed seeing bento boxes and pickled root vegetables. Also a green, stir fried veggie and brown rice would be welcome additions.

Suteishi is a great alternative to the Japanese restaurants in Tribeca, minus the attitude. Located at the Seaport, it is a skip from Wall Street, Century 21 and Strand Bookstore.

Went to SUteiShi on a Saturday night and was immediately impressed by the design of the restaurant and sushi bar. Although small, tables are not cramped together and there is a very open atmosphere (not to mention that you can see an amazing view of the Brooklyn Bridge).

Suteishi's menu is unique. They not only have the typical rolls and sushi that you are used to seeing at any Japansese restaurant, but also have unique ingredients that add a great, different taste (try the Eel on Top Roll). Portions are on the smaller side, but the quality of the ingredients is superior and the food was fresh and well prepared. I shared 5 small dishes (fillet steak on hot rocks, fried oysters, eel on top, soba noodles and the banana dessert) with a friend and found everything to be delicious. I also highly recommend the lychee ice cream... its unlike any other I've tasted.

This restaurant is great for lunch, dinner or even an after work drink.

Pros: Unique Ingredients, Tasty Food

The first thing that grabs your attention when you enter the restaurant is the decor. The walls are back lit with an Asian motif which makes the place feel very chic. There are also large windows which overlook cobble stone streets and allow you to take in a fabulous view of the Brooklyn Bridge. (Keep in your back pocket for Valentine's Day....) The menu offers you your standard Japanese favorites but upon deeper inspection you will notice some very unique selections. My date chose the sushi platter which she gave high marks. I went with the wait staff?s recommendations an oyster roll and the 'hot rocks' beef entree. The oyster roll was flavorful. My entree came out with a 'stylish mini grill' with Japanese hot stones. The idea is to cook the provided thin slices of beef on the rocks to your taste. An excellent choice if you enjoy flavorful meat that melts in your mouth. For cocktails my girlfriend went with a cold sake recommendation and I went with Orion beer. (Both are direct imports from Japan, the Orion is brewed in Okinawa) The wait staff definitely knew there stuff but were a bit slow. (I contribute the slow service to some of the kinks that come with a new place.) Desserts were unique too, definitely worth trying as my dinner companion noted. I recommend this place if you like Japanese food with a modern feel to it.

This Japanese restaurant had a great ambiance with its deep red ceiling and intricately patterned walls. The crowd was mixed and the staff was very friendly. I absolutely loved the sauteed eggplant and the dragon rolls! My sushi-obsessed friend who was with me was very impressed that the toro roll contained real toro and said that it was delicious. Since I'm a dessert freak, I especially enjoyed the "mochi" desert (cold, rice flour puffs filled with mango, coffee or vanilla ice cream) and deep fried bananas drizzled in syrup and powdered sugar. The green tea ice cream tastes a bit sorbet-ish for my taste, but the lychee ice cream have real chunks of lychee that melt in your mouth. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the neighborhood, and even if you're not, it's worth the trip!!

Suteishi is a new place in the downtown financial district. Food is excellent, service is attentive, the atmosphere is relaxed without being a "scene" or overbearingly chic, and the prices are certainly fair (food is probably equivalent to Nobu, but without the outlandish prices!). The clientele is diverse, from families to singles to just folks having dinner. The staff is very friendly and the service is prompt.
