L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

Reviewed By Suzanne F

An excellent meal. The chestnut soup may be the best soup I've ever had in my life, rich and creamy. The entire meal was memorable, as was the excellent staff. Seating is mostly at a long counter overlooking the kitchen so you watch the staff as they prepare the meal, which not everyone enjoys.My only dissatisfaction of the evening was trying to get a taxi after the meal was over. There was one place outside where everyone waited in line for taxis to come. The wait was maybe 20-25 minutes, which was not super long, but after a long dinner waiting in the cold late at night was not so fun. Next time I would try to call and have a taxi waiting for me around the corner from the taxi line.

This is a stylish restaurant and we love the ambience a lot. It is definitely a venue to celebrate special occasion. Unfortunately our dinner was a bit disappointing.Service was attentive but the young man who served our table spoke English with a heavy Japanese accent. It was difficult for us to get what he was telling us about the dishes and we had to refer to the menu frequently. At Narisawa, everyone spoke perfect English and it greatly enhanced the dining experience.They served only the Renaissance set menu and we did not find the food memorable. The salad was made with many kinds of vegetable prepared in different ways. They even presented a menu with the salad introducing the origin of the ingredients. The dish was similar to the signature salad we had at Den but it was not as delicious in taste nor as interesting in texture. We were told the 4 hours cooked turnip is the Chef’s signature dish. It reminded us the potato we had at Core by Clare Smyth in London not long ago. They both share the same concept of turning something simple into gourmet. Clare’s potato was out of this world and we could not have imagined a humble potato could be the star of the evening. On the other hand, the turnip was just a turnip and the flavour was underwhelming. We also did not find the apple pie #38 with prawn and goat cheese appealing. The cheese course with 3 tiny pieces of cheese was also poorly presented.Some reviewers considered the tea ceremony pretentious but we must disagree. We enjoyed the performance and it was unique and a very nice ending to the dinner.

La Table de Joel Robuchon

Reviewed By AsiaMorgan

I'm not going to be as harsh as the previous reviews, but this fine dining is for the fine dining crowd who don't mind taking hours to enjoy delicious food in such a formal, uptight place. As for me, i'm not a high-society person, so i guess i shouldn't have even tried. i only went here because of location for a business dinner. The food itself is first class but my unrefined tastes can't tell the difference between La Table and something like Lawry's. The service is very friendly and attentive, but again, like you're at a country club - so every formal, and explanations of every single detail of every single serving. I absolutely cannot see any M stars in the food - it's great, but that great? OK, there you go - country boy goes to the big city and can't tell the difference. If you can, enjoy!

I so enjoyed this meal. I am a coeliac and although I thought I would be no chance seeing it is over a french boulangerie I found the staff very helpful and enjoyed a lovely beef salad and glass of wine.

NARISAWA

Reviewed By sissjz

My partner and I were there for the Cherry blossom season and it turned out Chef. Narisawa had incorporate quite a lot of the sakura elements into his dishes. We have the sakura cocktail and it was so delicious. We were very impressed by their talented team because they definitely brings out the best of Japanese cuisine. Every single dish was prepared very diligently. Japanese element was presented in all the dishes. We were constantly Wowing all the time. Only downside was the restaurant was very noisy. Loved the experience so much, mus visit in Tokyo!

Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon

Reviewed By Gabriel H

We have visited several Robuchon restaurants (Paris, Montecarlo, Bordeaux, etc.) but it was our first visit to this restaurant. Housed in a beautiful French country chateau in the middle of Tokyo, it is exquisitely decorated inside. The dining area is on the second floor and there is a terrace on the ground floor. Service was attentive and discrete and the food, outstanding, similar or even better than in some of Robuchon's original restaurants. The chef, Michael, visited briefly with us and was delightful. This is clearly one of the very top 3-star restaurants in Tokyo. Don't miss it!
