We decided to go there last minute and it wasn't easy to find a table so I recommend to book in advance. The restaurant deco is very nice and spacious. It was really busy but they didn't keep us waiting. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. He explained all the dishes and helped us to choose. Everything we ate... More

Was recommended by a Japanese friend. Outstanding decoration, high ceilings, the peace of a Japanese place but you know that you are in Manhattan because some dishes include some french "truffes" (hint : I'm french). The food is awesome. First you look at it ... pleasure for the eyes, and then ... you eat it.

Maybe I'm spoiled by the number of great restaurants when I visit New York City. I'm not afraid of paying a lot of money for a good meal. However this is a lot of money for a average meal. The tofu was the best tofu I ever had. But it was still tofu. Completely tasteless but consistency more like cheese.... More

This has become my favorite restaurant in NYC. It's a beautiful place (rather romantic decor), and the food is terrific -- like a very modern take on a Japanese izakaya. They've got an excellent sake collection, and the service is superb! Have been several times now, and I can't wait to go back. The only quibble is that it's a... More

This place was once good - it's now just a hyped up nonsense - horrible meal - overpriced, noisy, draughty table. Tasteless food, mediocre cocktail, churchy atmosphere, for something that is only mediocre. Meaningless experience.

Oh God En is truly a religious experience and yes I am a regular customer. Art fused into food with imagination worthy of The Whitney. Any of the kaiseki selections but my regular favorite is the Aozora. Tonight - lobster in essentially an uni sauce. Then truffle chawanmushi? Each of the kaiseki selections is, of course, protein and then unimaginable... More

Authentic Japanese environment, well-mannered waiters spending all night over your table truly amazing cuisine and beautiful people from Village. EN is really a Japanese oasis in the heart of NYC.

Beautiful place with really excellent and beautifully prepared dishes. Service, however, is inattentive and almost non-existent.

We had a omakase course dinner at the counter that overlooks cooking area. Each dish of the multi course dinner tasted as good as it looks. Japanese cuisine with some subtle twists here and there. The space is lofty and spacious with the double height ceiling. The atmosphere is dark and dramatic.

Generally like our Japanese food very traditional. However, the kaiseki at En Brasserie was creative and delicious. Best homemade tofu we have had in years. Good spot for sharing a meal with friends. Friendly, knowledgeable bartenders. Extensive shochu selection.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
