“Unmatched service experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Took my 10yr old here this week for a celebration dinner.Unbelievable service throughout the evening. No one will let you lift a finger except to eat! Very knowledgeable staff about wines. Food was of course inventive, artistic and well prepared; overall good but with exception of my my mint-crab appetizer, was not really blown away with the food. Not saying bad; just not out-of-this-world. The vibe is excellent (request bar seat to overlook the open kitchen; but the decor is bit "cheesy"..

“THe palce wants to be like in Paris, but it lacks a bit in specialty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The place thrivces to be good and excels in its ambiente, and a few frech speaking employees who make a big fuss of being French. i guess part of the game.
Competition is high in Tokyo and so i give it a 4*

Great place for a more casual , no tie, dinner.

“Excellent Food, Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Went with my spouse on a Friday at lunch time. It was almost to capacity and we had not made a reservation, but we were seated anyway. Safer to make a reservation next time. Most of the seating is at a counter around an open kitchen: the waiters serve you over the counter, and behind them you see the entire cook staff at work. Nice color theme of black and red for the dishes, decor, and staff uniforms. But the best part is the food: fresh seasonal ingredients, perfectly prepared, and meticulously presented. (My only complaint would be that the portions are a little on the small side.) And for lunch, this world-class food can be affordable: starting at ¥1,900. We enjoyed every course, from appetizer to salad to entrée to dessert (photo attached).

“Maybe the best meal I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Everything we had here was spectacular. The waiter talked us through each course, how it had been cooked and what was special about it, which made us feel very special. The wagyu beef in particular was of course incredible. The food was interesting without being over-complicated or fussy, Great food, great wine, great service.
