We've been to Tokyo Robuchon 3 or 4 times for lunch now, and it's the first reservation I make whenever we visit Tokyo (even before hotel reservations!). First and most importantly, book lunch. Lunch is a deal for the level of food and service you get -- you'll see that the low-rating reviews tend to be from dinner, which is... More

Dining here is very expensive (for us!) but it was worth every yen. Every dish in the holiday dinner course was a gastronomical delight. The bread cart had so many choices. They heat the bread before serving them to you. Our waiter explained each dish in English. The service was attentive albeit a little stiff. My husband was very impressed... More

Overall the food quality still sustains. This is my 6th visit. Yet service slips over the years, management should retain or reemploy staff with stronger English skill. Disappointed at the service

I always wanted to try this restaurant whenever looking at the photos and reviews on Tripadvisor.com although I have tried several other properties of Chef Robuchon. My dream finally came true at the end of March while visiting Tokyo. The Peninsula Hotel successfully made us a dinner reservation even on a short notice. A reservation is a must especially for...

We had lunch at the Chateau Restaurant Joel Robuchon in mid March and it was fabulous. Joel Robuchon’s restaurants and patisserie occupied the entire chateau. The chateau was located in the Yesibu Garden Palace area. It was very interesting to have the chateau located right in the middle of a modern shopping complex. It was quite easy to walk from... More

We were there mid March, 2014 for lunch. 4 girl friends, celebrating a 30th. We got the 6 course tasting menu. Reservations were made via email and response was quick and in fluent english! Absolutely mind blowing meal! We stayed for around 4 hours, trying hard not to let the experience end. Every bite for every dish (even the cheese... More

It was our first experience eating at a famed Michelin started restaurant. It didn't disappoint! We love our food but never would spend 400-500 dollars on a meal as we aren't made of money.. However, we went as a 25th birthday present and loved it. A lot of the ingredients we had never tried before nor the flavour combinations so... More

(Hope I got that right !) My friend and I decided to celebrate her birthday here, and a very special meal was called for. I made reservation and we showed up early, but no matter, all was in ready. I had the seasonal course, and my friend the Specialty menu. We'd agreed beforehand she would have this, and I would... More

I have dined at both L'Atelier and La Table in Tokyo, found both to be fantastic, and couldn't imagine Le Chateau being any better, however I was wrong. Each is very different, and Le Chateau is at the top of elegance & culinary excellence, but in a warm and welcoming way. Everyone there is extremely friendly (yet professional) and never... More

The entire experience was contrived and almost farcical. At a 3 star restaurant, you expect a warm atmosphere, excellent food and the best service. Nothing felt authentic. I felt like it was all a big performance for the gullible customers who think they are experiencing elegance and taste. TACKY. I do not recommend it and in fact, with SO MANY... More
