We stayed at the Hyatt and ate there the first night after checking in. The food was decent, but way over priced for what it was...there are better restaurants in Kyoto that are more competively priced or simply good enough to warrant that price point. The atmosphere was very vanilla; exactly what you would expect from your average hotel restaurant. That said the place was clean and the staff was very attentive. Overall, if you are in Kyoto get out of the hotel and try one of the countless incredible restaurants on the outskirts of Gion or in Pontocho. While the food is good (not great) it is not like Kozsue or New York Grill at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo, etc that are stand out experiences that will define your trip to those places despite being in a hotel...nor is it a good value if you are trying to stay on a budget. So while the food is decent it misses the mark for both ends of the spectrum of diners: those looking for an experience at almost any price as well as those on a budget.

The Touzan is worth a visit even if you are not staying at the Hyatt. It has great service and great Japanese food in the Kaizeki style (a series of small dishes served in sequence), also varied options a la carte. The wine list is also varied and of good quality. Since we were staying at the hotel for a week, we dined there twice, will gladly return.

Food was fine just pricey, but food at restaurants tends to be expensive. I had the set menu which was decent but overpriced and sometimes seemed prepared too far in advance. There are better locations for the cost

Surprising to find such a good restaurant in a hotel basement, but innovative use of traditional and interesting ingredients. Very expensive.
