Excellent all around! The omakase experience was beyond my expectations. I also opted for the paired menu and it was delightful! The waitstaff is very knowledgeable and made our dinner even more enjoyable. Would love to return next time I am in the area! Highly, highly recommended!!

Had the kaiseki menu, which was a gorgeous, mouth-watering experience. Perfectly portioned, and a terrific progression of flavors and textures. My only constructive criticism would be, please consider an alternative to the fruity pebbles on the first dessert course. It's adventurous and creative, but not tasty. Everything else was superb.

Wow. What an experience. The food was delicious and fresh, the service was great and I loved watching the chefs work in a relaxed and methodical way. 10/10

The restaurant is small and intimate, which makes the experience even better. It feels incredibly personal and they do an amazing job of making you feel special. The food was spectacular! Every dish was so well balanced and the components played together like a symphony on your taste buds. This was truly a special experience and I will be back. If you’re in the mood for a culinary treat do yourself a favor and make a reservation here.

I haven’t had a culinary experience this good since the time I event coordinated with a fine dining experience. A true adventure of the tastebuds. I’m so happy we chose this for our anniversary dinner, already planning my next visit.

First time coming here and it was such a fun & cool experience! We did the Omikase menu and loved it. The shrimp tempura was absolutely delicious. The sea bass meal over rice was incredible. It was a long meal, about 2 hours. But loved the experience, ambiance. It was a rainy day and extremely cold in the restaurant so the hot green tea was perfect (and very tasty). Would love to come back when the menu changes in the future!

Absolutely delicious. The Omikase menu is the perfect amount of food. Everything was done well, and the ice cream was the perfect finish.
