Hibiki is a restaurant conveniently placed near the American embassy in Tokyo (Akasaka).
I wouldn't recommend it for dinner. Despite the upscale deco, service was extremely slow and rarely available to help. Food quality was OK (nothing stellar though). Price for what you get was the real issue. I got for 3,000 Yen a piece of grilled fish no longer than 2". Add 1,400 Yen for enough sashimi to feed a toddler (6 very small pieces), a bowl of basic rice for a premium, a glass of the least expensive sake, and you end up spending over 6,000 Yen per person and still feeling hungry. Frankly, this place is way too expensive for what it delivers, we are nowhere near Michelin star restaurant here. To be avoided.

High end, well prepared, small courses. Don't miss the homemade fresh tofu or the uni wrapped in yuba. If you're getting a beef dish, though, avoid the beef in savory pancake, which was one of the few misses on the menu.

Very nice donburi/tempura/teishoku restaurant in the Tamaike/Toranomon area, next to the American embassy. Great for lunch -- try the steak-donburi or other lunch items, generally in the 1600 to 1800 yen range. A soothing rock pond and modern Zen like interior make for nice atmosphere. The main room is a bit noisy with poor acoustics, but good space. Private rooms are good for business meetings. You can also sit at the tempura counter and talk with the chef. Very good for lunch engagements and reasonable place to entertain clients. Not a great option for dinner, since it closes early and the portions and prices go up, and they don't offer their great donburi selection at night.
