My husband and I were pretty excited excited to try this spot after our spa day. I so wanted to love it. We chose to do Omakase along with a flight of sake. Nothing quite came together. The food was either over- or under- salted/spiced....More

We heard mixed reviews, but so glad we decided to go anyways. The was the best restaurant of our stay in Santa Fe. The jicama salad was deliciously different. And we are all still dreaming of the corn fritters. Really everything we ordered was good....More

This is not a sushi restaurant, but more like Japanese tapas. Everything we ate was delicious and unusual -- a jicama and daikon radish salad topped with passion fruit sorbet, tempura (sort of) corn fritters, waygu steak). We found our waiter a bit over-bearing -...More

My husband and I went for dinner following our visit to Ten Thousand Waves. We weren't familiar with the cuisine so went with the Omakase at our servers suggestion. Boy are we glad we did. I think we had a total of 12 plates -...More

This restaurant specializes in sake and Japanese small plates. You won't find what is typical in a Japanese restaurant: no teriyaki, no negimaki, no sushi. What you will find is an excellent selection of small plates: delicious Japanese eggplant and pork ribs, mushroom dishes, various...More

The food is so good. The look and feel of the restaurant is relaxing and calming. Perfect after spending time at 10,000 waves. We ate lunch there. They are famous for their sake. And their amazing hamburger. I had cold cantaloupe soup and a bento...More

Description
A Japanese Adobe izakaya serving upscale small plates--creatively prepared, locally-sourced meat and produce with an emphasis on seasonality. Great selection of organic green teas from Shizuoka, locally roasted coffee drinks, ten different japanese craft beers, and the best selection of artisanal microbrew cold sake within 1000 miles. The most beautiful outdoor restaurant patio in town.
