I agree this place is not worth the Money it costs. really overpriced and poor quality too!and service is rude!!! The owner just tries to get you to spend more!
terrible. I actually was mislead by the reviews; this place is very overpriced and the food is much worst than the standard if les Asian restaurant. And all for twice the price! And the owner is so rude!!! Not recomended
neighborhood gem. we ordered bunch of small plates like hamachi tartare, japanese potato salad, naruto maki, spicy tuna maki, steak frites and caprese with mizuna salad. it was a perfect light summer fare with friendly staff and the best of all, the price was right. we all loved it.
Since I last reviewed this place in mid april quality is on the decline. The menu is typical of
an average fair Japanese noodle shop. Once billing itself as a pan asian establishment there is nothing
and I repeat nothing "pan" anything in the offering! Service is spotty depending on the night more of a local
watering hole than a go to spot in LES. Starting to become a dive bar..what a pity! Owner appears to be clueless as to what a turn around requires.I still come in here for a happy hour "bee-bo" during the week
but weekends hooking up with the babe are elsewhere dude. Satsko, call Captain America and get advice.
Sake selection is still top shelf so sake tasting night is still a deal.
First of all, thank you for your concern.
It is indeed a significant change. Chef Sean has been a great asset to the restaurant. While you want everything to be the same, it's inevitable since the essence of life is change. All we can do is to adjust, improve and hope for the best. We all miss Warren and we will miss Sean but we just have to appreciate the time spent together and move on. I hope you come back and get to know our new staff. Their style may be different from the predecessors but they are just as fabulous bartender/server/chef. Sean's last day at the restaurant is this Saturday,4/26 and then he will leave for NZ. soon after that. He wants everyone to come say goodbye.
Editorial Review. This Lower East Side restaurant features 40 seats, Pan-Asian cuisine and an extensive sake menu with more than 30 varieties.
Excellent!. The first time I went to Satsko, it was a work related celebration. One of my co-workers recommended it, so we gave it a try. We were so impressed with the food, the service and the atmosphere, that we returned a second time within months. I now recommend Satsko to anyone I know who enjoys a good atmosphere, great service, great food and drinks. Their selection of Sake is wonderful; I tried the unfiltered Sake (Crazy Milk) and it has now become my favorite. The food is just amazing; from the appetizers (fried calamari!) to the entrees (try the Ill-tempered bass, you won't be disappointed) it is just an all around great experience. The location is small and feels very intimate. Try Satsko, and you will go back!
Thank you for the great review. Please extend my appreciation to your co-worker who recommended us to you. See you again sooner next time, I hope.
New Year Cheer!. We arrived at the restaurant a little early because the traffic was surprisingly light for the Lower East Side and the bar tender took care of us including a surprise Sake bomb which put us all in the right mood. The four of us were seated promptly and our waiter gave us the run down for the new years menu, he was very knowledgeable and attentive and we ended up very happy happy with our selections. I couldn't resist the Lobster and it was just wonderful, sake roasted with garlic which I have never had before, it was gorgeous! My friends were equally impressed with their selections and I have to say, the presentation for all dishes was exceptional, turns out the chef was a New Zealander who told us he paints in his spare time, amazing stuff! Wonderful night, toasted the New Year with the owner and left around 1:30 content and ready for bed. Great night, highly recommended, we will definitely be back soon.
Thank you so much for giving us such a great review.
What a crazy night that was... I appreciate your patience in waiting in line for bathroom. I am determined to do a better job this year. Thank you again for your patronage.
Great food-outstanding customer service!. I just attended a friends birthday dinner here and I must say it was a wonderful experience. Not only was the staff completely attentive to myself and the party, the attention to detail was what really stood out in my mind. My friend had a custom menu created just specifically for her party. She took dishes off of the original menu that appealed to everyones likings, some things cooked ,some things raw, and some things vegetarian. I had the steak which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I also tried some of the pistachio encrusted tuna which was very nice. The food presentation was quite rememberable, the chef made a specialized cake with cream cheese icing along with homemade sake ice cream. He came out of the kitchen himself and presented the cake to our party-which I thought was a nice touch. We topped all the wonderful food off with an assortment of different sakes. Warren the server was very helpful in selecting the proper sake for each person. Overall a fantastic experience, and I plan on booking my next party there!
thank you. your review inspires us to do even better. you are a great, outstanding customer and we all appreciate your patronage. thank you!
Sorry can not recommend to others!.
I had noticed this place online several months ago and finally convinced
my boyfriend to take me. The waiter Warren was most friendly to us and we
believed we were in for an enjoyable experience. At first glance we noticed the
menu was limited in offerings and not really as much pan asian as japanese.
I ordered a tuna entree and my boyfriend ordered a New York steak...the presentation was wonderful
this fact however does not impress my boyfriend he just likes to eat not gaze! I enjoyed
my tuna dish however found it lacking in seasoning and somewhat bland. My boyfriend was quite
upset about the steak for twenty three dollars...A few pieces of over cooked steak on top of very little potato followed by an equally small amount of what looked like spinach. The sake was good and Warren most helpful in making a selection. Since my boyfriend paid I felt he deserved me writing this review and also a expensive x mas present to make up for his displeasure. Sorry Satsko's can not recommend to others as a dining experience for some sake at the bar a totally different matter.
i am sorry to hear that. we'll take your opinion very seriously since we've never had the review saying quite upset before. we could have easily remedyied that if you have voiced your disatisfaction to warren. again, i am sorry. hopefully, your boyfriend is loving enough to forgive you.
My friends and I ate at Satsko's last night and we loved it; I was a big fan of the original sake bar in the East Village and the new restaurant on Eldridge picks up right where they left off. The food is excellent; note - it's japanese-fusion, not a pure sushi place. I had a soy spicey tuna roll for an app that was fantastic, and a mixed ahi, hamachi and salmon shashimi over seaweed salad for an entry that was also very tasty. My friends went with the prix fixe menu with miso soup for an app and steak over wasabi mashed for an entree (I'm missing something else), which were both excellent. We topped off with homemade ice cream and sorbet that might be the best I've had in a while.
Of course we all had delicious sake, of which they have quite a selection. Whether you are a sake-fiend or have never tried it before, I definitely recommend checking this place out.
Warren (who used to run the original place) was a consummate host as always and was spot on with his recommendations for food and drink throughout.
oh, thank you for letting us know that the place is a continuation of 7th street. It's a great compliment to me. Isn't the ice cream like butter? It's not good for my waistline but I love them, especially green tea. As for sorbet, I love very berry sorbet and hurricane veronica. By the way, we are offering fall menu chef Sean created so check us up again. Hope to see you soon and thank you for the great review.
