After dining the previous night at the exhilarating Narisawa expectations were high for Ishikawa. And we couldn’t be more disappointed. First, we booked our reservation through a booking service called Tableall. Big mistake. You identify yourself as a foreigner/tourist and be prepared to be treated...More

Traditional Japanese cuisine. Extraordinary Food and service. High quality and diversity of products. I liked black throat sea perch with bamboo shoots, flatfish with sea urchin and thinly sliced Japanese beef with turnip covered with sticky sauce. Just fantastic! It’s hard to find the entrance....More

I will start with the good part. The staff was exceptional and as nice as can be. Our cab driver couldn’t find it so called the restaurant and two of the staff came out to meet us on the corner so we wouldn’t get lost....More

This is some something extraordinary. Food and service is just fantastic. Simple as that. It’s more than a restaurant, is a memory for life, hard to find the entrance, sex seats in front of the chef and the rest is history. Absolutely brilliant!

All the dishes of "Ishikawa" are really great. There are many fine Japanese restaurants in the Japan, but there are few opportunities to meet these great dishes. All of the dishes are simply refined, deep and delicate. There are a lot of dishes finished up...More

Since I love Kohaku (their sister restaurant in Kagurazaka - the Chef of Kohaku was trained at Ishikawa) I was so looking forward to my dinner at Ishikawa. Unfortunately I was not that impressed. I could totally eat same quality food in Azabu and Ginza...More

We have been to Ishikawa on average about once a year for the past five years. This time was an extension of my birthday celebrations. It was a Monday night and the second booking slots from 9pm were also full. Chef Ishikawa doesn't seem to...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.

I asked my hotel to contact the restaurant, I was aware though I was lucky to get a table on such short notice.
