Absolutely wonderful! I rarely go back multiple times to a restaurant in DC unless it is 100% worth it. The staff at SEI is by far the friendliest and most attentive of any restaurant I've been to in the 7 years Ive lived in DC. In addition their restaurant week menu and bottomless mimosas/bloody mary deal is the best in DC. Definitely one of my favorites!

Really nice. We went there for dinner on restaurant week. Portions were well sized (unlike other skimpy, pricey restaurants) and delicious, combining Japanese food with a tiny bit of Mexican food (e.g., guasave guacamole, tuna (Japanese style) tacos). We didn’t like the chocolate pancakes for dessert but the bread pudding was scrumptious! Quiet, elegant and modern. Really nice :)

SEI is such a hidden gem. The bibimbap is delicious and well-priced - we've tried all three! Cocktails are great! Came here for a birthday and a date. Love the decor, and staff are helpful - waitress gave great menu recommendations, and they opened the door for us as we left. Really nice time! :)

I like discover then this restaurant was for me a beautiful experience. But for some of my friend the choice if their order was difficult then they didn't really eat.i would like that next time the servers be more helpful like ask what you like rice or potatoes...meat or shrimp and give them some possibilities. But the rest was perfect!

One of my favorite restaurants in all of DC. I come here every time I’m in town. The fish and chips rolls are amazing. I sometimes find myself thinking about them during the week leading up to my arrival. If you love sushi, this is the place. I think the overall atmosphere is chic without trying too hard. Service is outstanding don’t. I always sit in Alexis’ station or at least ask for him if I’m seated elsewhere. It’s hard for me to come to DC and not dine here. I highly recommend.

Food and service are excellent, and priced very reasonably for what you get. While quieter than most restaurants in the area, still too noisy to have a real conversation with your companions.

The sushi dishes were pretty good. The cooked dishes were overdone, not tasty, and boring. (Boneless short rib was actually disgusting.) Adding to all was the fact that everyone (not just at our table!) had to shout and their own table to be heard. Never again.

Went 12/17/18 before a Smithsonian event. Asian inspired tapas with a very full sushi and sashimi selection (which we didn't partake of). The garlic skirt steak was fabulous and the pork buns were good (but not great). Had a side of black rice (wonderful). My wife had boneless pork short ribs and loved it as well as the Asian Pear Sangria. Followed up my selection with the Korean Tacos. Great and larger than some of the other dishes (3 smallish tacos). Service was excellent without being intrusive. My only complaint, as is true with most of the tapas style restaurants I've been to, is that the dishes are small for what you pay for them. I had 3 'entrees' and a side, my wife had 2 with a side and dessert, and we certainly weren't overfed. But with 2 drinks each and tip it was over $75 per person. Wonderful meal but really quite expensive for what we got. So we recommend it for a special occasion where unique and delicious tapas are what you are looking for, but expect to pay for the experience.

This was my first visit to SEI. Almost a completely positive experience -- delicious and imaginative dishes and fast service. Several of the sushi creations I had never encountered before. The caveat -- it's not cheap!

Arrived Saturday at 6:00PM for a 6:00PM reservation. "Please wait at the bar." I thought "Uh oh." SEI was jammed with Caps fans. But the bar wait was about two minutes. "Whew."

Wine came promptly. Our first dish arrived at 6:35. Did I mention the joint was slammed with Caps fans?

We had our favorites, Kobe beef sliders and fish 'n chips roll. Then a bunch of dishes we hadn't had previously. Yum! Service was as attentive as a slammed dining room could be.

Hockey fans thinned out about 7:00. So the decibels dropped below the level of a jet engine. I will check our next theater night against the Caps schedule. Or get earplugs.

I wish SEI would scrape the white paint off their windows. Passers by can see in because their heads are above the window paint. But we diners only see disembodied heads gawking in at our meals. Gawking parity, please.

Sushi and tacos are very good. Seaweed salad is so-so. A little bit expensive, but still affordable. 1.5-2 plate person would be sufficient.

It's been a few years since I was last at SEI, and unfortunately I was a little disappointed in the food quality this time around. I used to think it was one of the best places in the city to get sushi, but I found the sushi this time to be just slightly better than average - especially since it is a bit on the expensive side. It's still a good place though, just not as good as it used to be in my opinion.

Is this the most underrated restaurant in DC? Our answer is yes. We enjoyed yet another superb experience at SEI and were again so impressed that our conversation centered on its lack of notoriety. The crispy shrimp sushi roll, the spicy cilantro tuna roll, the waygu beef sliders, the caramelized Chilean sea bass, etc,. were all 'world class' in flavor and presentation. We now dine here each time we visit DC (often).
