Staff was friendly with fairly good English. Limited selection of steaks at the time of our visit but still good options. Food was good, overall nice visit and good food.

Very slow service with poor sequencing. Left before receiving the main since it had already been 1.5 hours and were told it was another 15 minutes to go. "Locals" seated 15 minutes after us received their steaks in a timely fashion while the "tourists" waited. Spend your time and money elsewhere when visiting Kyoto!

Restaurant is quite casual although prices are very high. Every thing is very clean and in good taste, Japanese style. Rise, salads and side dishes are excellent, but hey, we came here to eat Cobe. The waiter showing and offering different pieces of Cobe beef. Most of them quite small and not suitable for normal western dinner, up to 200 gs. Also not all different portions are available. Every gram costs... In the end if you want to eat a good steak, with out hearing your hart beating and fill pain in your pocket, this is not the place to go.I enjoyed but it was not outstanding as I've expected.

Pas d’explication sur le menu et croyez-moi, il fallait comprendre. Pas de menu pour le vin, nous avons dû demander. Beaucoup de difficulté à discuter en anglais. Addition salée et difficile à déchiffrer. Bref, pas le meilleur Kobé que j’ai mangé!
