We had read and heard good things about this restaurant and finally booked a midweek dinner here for our anniversary. We conducted all of our communications via email. The restaurant is very small -- only about 2-3 tables -- but it's like entering another world....More

The people are nice and the food and presentation are well worth the price. The ambiance was truly perfect and diverted the customer from a restaurant in a shopping mall to a fine eater in Japan. Well deserved of its 5-Star rating.

I had a tough time giving this restaurant 4 stars instead of 5, but I felt that a price of $110 + drinks + matcha was a little excessive. However, leaving that aside, the experience is fantastic. You really do forget that you are in...More

Our kaiseki dinner was artistic in its presentation and this beauty was equaled by the fine selection and preparation of each course. With sake pairings this was a very expensive meal. However the restaurant seemed to serve only two tables a night and it might...More

Took our son here for his 16th birthday. Food was spectacular and exquisitely presented. It is a fixed 8 course menu (portions are small so it is not overwhelming). Each course is beautifully presented on unique pottery made by the chef. The sashimi course just...More

We visited this restaurant for a special celebration. We had stopped by without a reservation before and wondered why we couldn't get in when there were plenty of empty tables. The chef prepares each eight-course meal in advance and the wait staff presents his creations...More

Wow!!! Truly remarkable, memorable meal. Fantastically creative, unique, artistic, delicious and fresh. This food is on par, perhaps better, than Fearrington House. The atmosphere is serene, not as posh as Fearrington, but the quality of the food and the presentation is superb. Excellent, friendly service...More
