    There were two of us. We both had the petite Cesar salad which was delicious and unique, lettuce cut up with crunchy bits of toasted seeds or rice. One had the pork chop garnished with salad of lettuce and cherries . The other had two rolls of sushi. They were attractive but not generous with how the fish were slice and the narrowness of the roll. There was not the fatness of the roll which I like. The service was excellent and professional.

    Great meal. Quality of sushi was very good, but not the best I’ve ever had. I wish there had been a bit more variety for the Sushi. As a sushi lover it was a bit limiting, but the Titus and Anzu rolls were really good. The service was very good, attentive, but not invasive which is a great combination. It’s a bit pricey, but overall I had a great time.

    Open table says vaccination proof is expected by the restaurant but this is no longer true. This incorrect statement at the open table reservation downgrades the overall experience at Anzu. Food is very good but portion is very small relative to general American restaurants.

    Food was great but unfortunately the service was rather spotty. I understand due to Covid there may not be enough workers, so it was disappointing. We had theatre tickets. We were there in more than enough time but we’re still very rushed. Please hire more wait staff and sushi chefs, or don’t take that many reservations.

    Silverware had food from previous diners stuck to it. Food presentation was quite good, but overall quality was at best average. Service was professional, but subpar to other restaurants in the immediate area. This is a hotel based restaurant and likely sufficient for travelers looking for a good meal. However, for those looking to go off property, there are better values to be had.

    Dinner was excellent. Loved cooking skewers on our own little grill on our table. Service started out great, then waiter seemed to disappear. Dessert of s'mores was not great. Ok, but not what was expected after great meal. Took forever for check. Busy there but not slammed so guess waiter just forgot about us. Too bad as this would be five star if service didn't drop off and finally disappear!

    This is an upscale Japanese restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere are all excellent. I had black cod and it was as good as I have had anywhere. As an added bonus, the restaurant provides preferred seating for the show afterwards at Feinstein's.

    I have been to Anzu several times, but this evening was a real disappointment, due totally to the lack of management and inadequacy of the service staff. Low/more affordable wines ($60) out of inventory, long wait for any service other than water, when finally served, incorrect and omitted items. The entire experience was very disappointing.

    It's great to eat here if you're seeing a show in the hotel; you get priority seating and almost free parking. As a destination restaurant it's just good. The food was good, but it's not cheap; stick with the sushi and Japanese cuisine. The cocktails are on the small side, as well as the wine pours. We'll keep going for the show perks and stick to the Japanese food and bottles of wine!
