Location and contact

Good evening and welcome to Utogaria. Izakaya has been essential Japanese casual restaurant to experience Sake and various dishes for generations. We would offer this Izakaya concept in both authentic and modern style to connect today's generations. We wish our customers can enjoy variation of dishes, therefore our dishes are not so big. Our one dish is about for two people and two people order six to eight dishes in average. Hope you enjoy combination of little bit of this and that!

We showed up as a family of 3 on a Friday night without reservations but they took us in with big smiles. They had English menus and helped us understand items we haven’t had before. The sake menu and food choices were abundant. All items...More

Hate to be the one who breaks from the group on this place, but we went based on Trip Advisor reviews and what I read in those reviews didn’t equal our experience. To be completely honest, this place seems very trendy, I’m not a fan...More

We tried this after reading the good reviews. We were upstairs which meant we were away from the action a bit and the staff had very little English but that didn't matter - we managed to eat and drink very well. The food was excellent...More

Stellar staff and excellent food. The unpolished rice pizza with Japanese pickles and mayonnaise was unlike anything I'd had before. Excellent bottles of sake on hand as well. Would recommend.

Can't rate the restaurant highly enough. As soon as we walked in a warm welcome radiated from all members of staff. It really does make a huge difference when you are in unfamiliar territory. Hiroki matched the sake with our meals. My wife had the...More

Truly the best food I’ve had in Japan! All of the dishes are well balanced and cooked (where appropriate) to perfection! I really enjoyed the touches of Yuzu in a number of dishes, and the Oyster and beef dishes are both must try’s! Did I...More
