Firstly lets make clear this restaurant is NOT very Japanese. It is a western interpretation. The table service is pushy to sell over priced beer/wine/water, quick to over fill glasses and push the next bottle. The food, regrettably is NOT really Japanese. Too heavy, not delicate, quality not obvious and served by European staff more suited to work in a... More

I was disappointed with this restaurant. The table was not ready at the time of the reservation and then they rushed us throw out the meal. The food was average. On a more positive note, I appreciate the place.

This was my fourth visit to Sake No Hana over the last year or two. It's a nice place for fine dining Japanese, of which I'm a big fan. Sake No Hana is a little pretentious compared to some of its competitors (Roka springs to mind), but nevertheless good food and great cocktails - some really exciting combinations, in fact!

It was a surprise dinner at Sake No Hana for me and It was absolutely one of the most memorable evenings of my life. The attention to detail exceeded any expectations: from the modern interior, dishes, even bathrooms stocking delicious Aesop soap and hand cream. Service through the restaurant and bar was very attentive, friendly and natural. Not to mention... More

I visited Sake No Hana for an early dinner recently. Maybe that was a mistake, as I was the first guest and for the first half an hour I felt the eyes of all staff on me, which was slightly unnerving. Although once more people began to arrive, the attention thankfully shifted from me to other people. The reception is... More

Really friendly welcome, however once we were sat down the service was so prompt that you felt you should be leaving! Dishes being cleared before they were actually finished. Food VERY average and expensive for what you were getting. However the serving staff were polite and friendly. Would I go back probably not - sorry!
