On the whole a good experience. Costly but that goes without saying.

Ginza Onodera provides outstanding food with a refined, formal environment. Sashimi and meat options are both offered and would be a good choice for a mixed group where some people may not like raw fish. If you are vegetarian/vegan there are not many options.
However, the food is executed immaculately in beautifully presented dishes that tasted as good as they looked. The service was also very attentive.
I particularly enjoyed the Miso Black Cod and the Chocolate Gateau with raspberry mochi.
Ginza Onodera is perfect for business lunches and more formal dining experiences. It is set on the lower ground floor and so offers a more serious, dimly lit atmosphere. My lunch at the restaurant was a casual lunch and was excellent, but I do feel dinner perhaps is the best time to go for the atmosphere.
Overall, I had an excellent dining experience. Ginza Onodera provides excellent food and service. However, note that it is expensive (especially the sake) and more suited perhaps to formal/ fine dining experiences in the evening.

Service is nice but not great as compared to the Gonzalez Onodera in Shanghai which service is attentive . Eg in London ‘s Ginza Onodera, you do not have the plate for cutting the chicken or the plate for eating sushi, the waiters or waitress would not pay attention. The good is fine , but they are served in western way meaning as a course thus they do not serve with a small plate . But the course itself eg the chicken in Yuzu was served in a nice tall plate which not convenience for me to cut the chicken into small pieces. The vegi tempura is also a bit oily so I did not finished all, real good tempura should be fried and served where you do not find excessive oil. Which reminds me of the tempura tasting menu being so exquisitely done in Shanghai’s Ginza Onodera.

I really like this place and goes for special occasion.
But the price from open table is different to restaurant's actual price.
I spend more than I expected. Open table should update the price or offer the right price to customer.

The food was really good, yellowtail carpaccio for starter stand out, as well as all the selection of sushi and sashimi.

Service wise, maybe too many waiters around when I preferred to have bit less interaction.

Sommelier, a French lady I guess, did a great service, I was really pleased seeing her tasting the wine before serving.

A plus for reservation as I contacted them as I needed to know the vintage of the wine that I have had, they followed up and contacted me back.

I will definitely come back!

Pleasant dinner at Ginza Onodera. Food was mostly good - we ordered from the a la carte menu. One exception - the lamb cutlets from the grill were overcooked. They recooked them but the next dish was also overcooked but we ate it anyway.
Something I found strange was the sushi rice. It was darker than normal in color and at first we thought it may be brown rice. Upon asking they explained they were using a “special” red vinegar in the preparation. Frankly I didn’t think this did anything for the end result and actually felt the rice lacked the fragrance and texture of really good sushi rice. FYI I’ve lived 7 years in Tokyo and so have had my share of Japanese food. Fish was ok but not exceptional. Service started out attentive and prompt at 7:30 but slowed down significantly during the course of the dinner. The lady sommelier was very pleasant and helpful. They have an excellent selection of sake in addition to wine etc..
Price was ok for the quality provided. All in all an enjoyable evening but at this price point they should have very competent competition and I would try somewhere else next time.

Swish new Japanese restaurant, maybe because we went on Monday it was quite quiet and had atmosphere of a business dinner place, quite formal. Food generally good but have to say for price could do better.

Comfortably seated at well spaced, large tables. Broad menu of different styles of Jaapanese cuisine. Truffle season brought an interesting fusion to sukiyaki.
Otoro nigiri memorable. Sommelier is excellent - knowledgable and passionate with a great sake and wine collection to steer around.

One of the best meals out I have had in London! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and there was gentle live music playing which added to the ambience. The food was delicious, each dish was tasty and the portions were pleasantly bigger than expected. We received fantastic service throughout, especially from our sommelier, Amelie, who provided us with some amazing wines along with some great information about each one. I will definitely come back here and would highly recommend a visit!

We had a seasonal course menu and we loved it a lot. Amazing customer services and fantastic food! We don’t usually go this price range of restaurant but it was my husband’s birthday celebration dinner and it was definitely worth it. I hope we can go back hopefully soon!

We arrived at the restaurant and gave our coats to the hostess. She was very friendly and afterwards took us to the dinning room downstairs. We sat down at our table and we ordered a glass of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and a mocktail. Then we ordered our food. The chef was very friendly and had a lovely chat with us. The food arrived no delays. Flavours were amazing and quality was great . We paid £160 for two people. It was our anniversary and after they took us a picture they printed it and put it in a nice carton frame and gave it to us together with an anniversary plate with our dessert. Really nice touch. Overall we had a great meal and great time. Would definitely return.

There are very few places where you can enjoy authentic and well prepared Japanese food in London. Most places are pale imitations with too much emphasis on fusion and other variations. Many places are simply too noisy and the service and ambience is not refined. None of this applies to Onodera.

This does not mean it is boring, bland and staid. It is simply excellent food, beautifully presented and served with the right decorum and with no unnecessary and contrived embellishment.
