About the restaurant
We adhere to the craftsmanship of traditional Japanese cuisine. Chef Kenkichi Yamamoto handpicks the freshest ingredients of the season, using them to inspire the creation of all his dishes. Our kaiseki prix fixe menu has traditional Japanese flavors mixed with french elements featuring shun (seasonal) ingredients. The 9 courses range from the chef's interpretation of sashimi to unique steamed, boiled and grilled dishes. We have seasonal fish and fish offerings traditionally found in Japanese cuisine as well as other dishes to order a la carte. The menu is set for you to experience a dinning experience like no other. Feast with your eyes and stomach! Enjoy!

I absolutely loved my omakase experience here! It was just enough food so I didn’t leave overly stuffed, and all of the courses were exceptional! They apparently just introduced this omakese menu for the summmer, so everything was bright, fresh, beautifully plated, and absolutely delicious. There were a couple of surprises that I wasn’t expecting, like the chawanmushj with Gorgonzola cheese which which I never would think would work, but it did! The staff was super knowledgeable and attentive throughout the dinner. Overall a great experience, and my friend from out of town that joined me felt the same.
