Seito Sushi - Baldwin Park
While continuously redefining the sushi scene of Orlando, Seito Sushi has built a reputation for quality and consistency over the past ten years. Honoring traditional technique while being inspired by the innovation found in modern cuisine, the menu features a variety of classic Japanese fare as well as unique Asian inspired dishes. The modern yet comfortable atmosphere suits every occasion, whether a celebration, casual night out or wine and cocktails after work
Modern, hip, and cool with lounge music piping beckons this anchor at Baldwin Park on Main St. One block away from the spectacular lakeside promenade is this contemporary sushi restaurant. There is wrap around outdoor sidewalk style and lavish indoor seating. The interior is stark and very stylish with a floor to ceiling wine display.
Several years ago when this place first opened, that entire wall was a giant blank canvas. I was hoping that they would build something spectacular and they did not disappoint. The wine list back then was also very stark, not today. I am very encouraged that this sushi restaurant has embraced the wonderful world of wines. From the varied and balanced selections it is clear that they did not just accept a giant wine distributor name brand friends. Cheers! We choose a glass of Saarstein Riesling, which had a nice bouquet with hints of mineral and a glass of 2009 Cuvee de Blanc, Huguenot Cellar, Santa Ynez Valley, CA. (Grenache Blanc 33%, Sauvignon Blanc 33%, Gewurztraminer 33%, Love 1%) A clean crisp herby dry white blend that was ever so lightly sweet on the palate.
The menu features the regular suspects of rolls on a “sushi list”, signature rolls, sashimi, nigiri, appetizers, soups, salads and main courses highlighting Korean and Japanese cuisines. Of course the endangered Chilean Seabass is on the menu. Not sure anyone pays attention to that anymore. I love this fish. But I have to take a stand. Wonder if it will ever come off the endangered list? Did I mention, I love Chilean Seabass? I am not a fan of the sushi list. There, I made my preference known. I believe a restaurant should have servers who are knowledgeable about the menu and be able to guide a guest in ordering. Not a guest marking on a piece of paper their order, why don’t I walk it to the sushi chefs also. Maybe, I can pick it up from the sushi bar also. Okay, I know I am getting carried away.

This restaurant has come a long way over the years. I am tempted to say that it has matured. Long gone is the ditsy “hostess”, welcome to the personable, courteous team of greeters, servers, and food runners. Oh, a manger even came over and inquired if everything was okay. Swell! The sushi rice for the rolls were well balanced in acidity and texture. Although the menu was very safe maybe the interior space made up for the cool factor. Just a thought, a couple of adventurous items and this restaurant can really up its hip factor.
Not bad at all! I recently ate at Seito on Sandlake Rd. in Orlando, Fl and had a great experience. Pretty cool sushi joint. I did notice that the sushi chefs were all looking sad and there were no smiles.
This place has super fresh sushi and sashimi, as well as a big selection of sushi rolls. I love their tuna kobachi with a cold Kirin. Seito’s has an excellent wine list and some really good cocktails. Their cooked food is good too, I usually go with the shrimp tempura.
