Excellent french modern restaurant, for a very affordable price at lunch for this kind of place (around 8500yens).
Service was top notch, with a free shuttle that can drive you back to Ebisu station.


It is a lovely and beautiful experience overall. Each dish's wine matching is based on taste and also color. They also offer non-alcoholic beverage pairing. The bread pairing is a nice touch to the experience. You can choose to upgrade your main dish to Waguy beef with additional 2,000 yen which is a good deal. The seating space is not big but cozy. I feel pampered by the good selection of hand creams and Aesop hand wash in the wash room.


5 stars for presentation, esthetics and we'll executed menu. Go for fine dine experience, recommended for occasion/celebrations. Requires advance reservation, weekdays are easy to get a table.
We were a party of 3 ordered the top dinner course and loved everything that was served.
All food was color coded and work of art.

Will definitely visit again.
