"Great spot for an after work stop that offers a different atmosphere! The team was very attentive including the Manager Jason whom went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. I had even dropped my fork on the floor, and a server immediately noticed and within seconds had a new utensil ready for me. Staff was very friendly and accommodating while the food & drinks were delicious! Definitely coming back!"

"Every time I go to SEI, I always enjoy the sushi! The service is always top notch. I've taken my colleagues and they have all loved it! I'm going back this month with a couple of my co-workers and having some more sushi!! There are plenty of options on the menu if you aren't a sushi fan, and it's done very well! Highly recommend this place! I'm addicted!"

"My boyfriend and I made a lunch reservation for restaurant week on a Saturday. The one downside to this lunch was that it was falsely advertised. We made a lunch reservation because it would be cheaper, only to find out at the restaurant that on the weekends they were only serving the more expensive dinner restaurant week menu all day. We almost left, but felt guilty since the waiter had already greeted us. We decided it would be cheaper to order outside of the restaurant week menu, and everything was AMAZING! The sushi was excellent, but our favorite dish was the beef short ribs. The drinks were very refreshing as well."

"Two tiny pieces of sushi for $9 is poor value. Four tiny pieces of sushi for $18 is no better. A particularly tiny eel/avocado sushi roll for $13. Food is tasty but miniscule and way overpriced for the portions. Too bad - nice venue, conveniently located to theater. Service staff were anxious to please and service was reasonably prompt. Appreciated the hot green tea which was repeatedly refilled."

"I went to SEI yesterday for a working lunch with a few colleagues. It was Restaurant Week in DC so we were excited to try their prix fixe menu. The food was good, but I just cannot let the service issues slide. I understand that it was likely busy because of the Restaurant Week promotion, but our lunch was inexcusably slow: an hour and 45 minutes for two out of three courses (we asked to take dessert to go since missing any more of our work day was not an option). The server was very sweet, but the kitchen was completely unprepared. Management did not check on us at all to see how things were going, explain, or apologize. The sushi roll we ordered was delicious and interesting, but the incredibly slow service ruined the entire experience. By the time the second course arrived (90 minutes after we had been seated) all I really wanted was to get out of there and on with my day. Such a shame."

"Food was all right as some of it seemed to be prepared ahead of time; somewhat expected as restaurant week is very busy. Service was great! Would possibly come back if in the area!"

"I was surprised at how underwhelmed I was - the rolls that received the best reviews i ordered, and all were very flavorless (fish and chips and lobster roll. The spicy salmon cilantro was pretty good and so was the Kobe slider. I do not recommend this place for foodies. Seems like just a place to be seen."

"A group of coworkers and I went to SEI for lunch during DC restaurant week. Everyone agreed that the food was amazing, but there was a 10 or 15 minute lag between courses, which isn't ideal for lunch on a workday."
