La Rochelle Sanno Reviews

Food: 5; Service: 5; Atmosphere: 5. Times visited: 1.

Visited for a business lunch, and was very impressed with the entire experience. Staff and waiters were attentive, but not overbearing. Each dish was done just right. And table spacing was ideal, which is nice when talking business.

2 courses were offered at lunch. Will definitely be back.


The food was divine and the service exemplary. The live music performance created the perfect ambience


Sanno location. Very conveniently located. Just by the Tameike-Sanno metro station (exit 6 - exit building ground level and turn right). Only one set menu available with choices of main entrée and dessert. Not too pricey - 10k yen per person before plus plus. Reservation recommended in advance for Fri & Sat. Menu was in English and Japanese. At this level of fine dining, we felt the food was uneven but generally good. Service was very good but staff fluency with English is very limited. We each got a small box of petit four when we left. They also gave us 1 copy of the menu as a keepsake. Do note that the menu offering is different from the Minamiaoyama (older) location. So you can go to both locations if you are a big Sakai fan and enjoy a different experience at both. If we had to choose to go to just one, we will choose the Minamiaoyama location..
