Beef. If you are lucky to have access to this restaurant and you love beef, the raw and cooked beef are excellently prepared and marinated. Highest quality meats! Chef Kaz is a character and has a wonderful personality. BYOB. Nothing better than great wine and...More

My boyfriend and his family took me for my surprise dinner. I knew nothing of what my dinner will be like. Initially when I arrived, the place did not seem so "open." I walked in and again didn't seem so assuring that it was going...More

This is one of those restaurants where you are supposed to know someone in order to eat there. The phone number is rumored to be unlisted. I went as a +1 with a large party (10). The food is meat. Hard to find anything green....More

It's probably the best quality meat I had in a restaurant in California, maybe in the USA. You need to know the Chef in this restaurant to "earn" your dinner, I mean earn because it's a gift to eat at Totoraku. Bring your own wine,...More

I have been eating here for about 10 years, never even considered reviewing before, because of the once-mysterious cache that now seems to have at least in part evaporated. Kaz and his wonderful world of Oz (oops I means Kaz) are now universally and famously...More

So I've been meaning to try this place for quite some time now...ever since a friend of mine forwarded me articles about Chef Kaz almost a year ago. I didn't really put much effort or thought into it since I knew it was an exclusive...More

This restaurant is very difficult to get in to. Typically, you must know the chef or know someone that has previously dined in the restaurant. That being said... the restaurant has no fancy signage or full page advertisements. Instead, they have the BEST meats and...More

There are 2 types of people in this world...those who have dined at Totoraku and those who wish they can dine at Totoraku. Until Friday night, I was of the latter...but after Friday night, I am now of the former! The food was fairly similar...More

All I can say is wow, it lived up to all the hype. Who'd have thought raw liver could taste so good. Best tomatoes ever. Beef just melts in your mouth. Can't wait to go back.
