A restaurant that requires time to enjoy… the menu presents an attractive offering… the Uni is a favorite. The wine list is not deep, but expected… not all pairings enhance the flavors… excellent service, almost to a fault… such presentations require time and good company to enjoy… sadly, the downside for me was the excelerated timetable due to the scheduling of reservations…

Tasting $165. Interesting dining experience, everything comes out together, a lot of foam. Thought the overall experience and restaurant was not super impressive

Had the degustation. Can only say it was an absolute disappointment. Have to agree with one of the other reviewers to say only 1-2 dishes were good and the rest was either bad or forgettable. The first course was a smoked yellow jacket which was only flavoured with smoke, which didn't taste like anything and the cheap pickled vegetable they served with the fish didn't help. The uni was passable. The snow crab was good on its own however if you ate it with any of the accompliments you could no longer taste the crab. I also feel like none of the accompliments enhanced the flavour instead they just tried to provide sweetness to a crab meat that's already supposed to be sweet. The fish from the Tokyo markets was a massive disappointment. It tastes frozen and tough even though it's supposedly flown in from Tokyo on the day you eat it. The Wagyu was good in that the meat itself was good. The way it was cooked and the accompaniments again did nothing to really make its unique properties stand out. The cheese course was terrible with a sickly sweet poached pear stuffed with cheese and covered with burnt caramel sauce. Over the top sweet with absolutely nothing to balance it. The meringue icecream was similarly over sweet to the point not even the coldness of the ice cream could really save it. The raspberry dessert was the only really decent dish where there was balance and things came together. I just felt like I wanted the meal to be over with when I was half way through it since it took about 3 hours for them to agonizingly bring out one bad dish after another with about 10-15 minutes inbetween each course. Oh and they also mandate 18% gratuity. Overall a really terrible experience. An utter disappointment for a Michelin star restaurant.
