I think it’s overly priced, for the restaurant week. The waiter’s attitude was not as good as previous. Won’t recommend the $125 menu unless you want to waste money.

Food and service were fantastic! The 1 1/2 hour time limit was stressful and didn't allow us to properly enjoy the meal or the A5 wagu beef. Think that when you spend over $500 on a meal this deadline is arbitrary and unfair.

We were seated 30m late without apology. There was a customer vaping in the bathroom, which was relatively dirty. The food itself was good, but not enough to compensate for the rest of the experience.

We had very nice dishes, but the service was chaotic. The table next to us was highly attended and their dishes were cooked the moment they arrived. Our wagyu sat on the table for 20 minutes before it was cooked. It was very irritating to see the table next to us be attended instantly with all dishes while we waited. The mushrooms we had were burnt as they were left so long. The waiter didn't think to check and we had to call him over to point it out. "I'll be back to flip the zucchini in 2 minutes" turned into two pieces of burnt zucchini. We ended up cooking the rest ourselves. Similarly, there were two dishes of meat we cooked ourselves. At one point, we pointed out that the waiter was ignoring us and someone else subbed in. This was great. Until it wasn't. Even this attention didn't last.

So, overall great flavors, but not great service.

The quality of the food itself was amazing but service was horrendous for the amount you pay. We sat at the bar for a half hour while we waited for the table to be ready and the bartender didnt attempt to take a drink order and wouldn't serve us. Once we sat down the waiter service left a lot to be desired. When you're spending hundreds of dollars, forgetting to bring a meat to the table for 40 minutes at a bbq restaurant is a huge oversight.

Great outdoor seating for BBQ. We ordered two a5 waygu cuts, it took some time to get it. But overall, great quality of meat, they really know how to cook their meat. Garlic rice, bone marrow soup, kimchi were all delicious. Even the regular rib eye was beautifully cooked.

I was once a server and I can recognize that visual image often dictates perceived value. However, just as servers get in the weeds, so to do all people. I came in after a long day at work and did not have time to go home and change and still make my reservation on time. I was in scrub pants and a black t shirt (all clean). My party and I waited for upwards of half an hour and were consulted by the busboy 3 times before finally being greeted. This may have been a misunderstanding on my behalf (server in the weeds perhaps), however it seemed as if my party's outfits were not fit to serve. I spent a sizable amount of money and left a 20% tip anyway. For future reference, if one is making a reservation at a $$$$ restaurant then chances are that they're prepared to spend an appreciable amount of money. One should treat all visitors to a restaurant alike unless said visitors are verbally and/or physically abusive or inappropriate in some way.

Futago was an absolutely amazing experience. The food was amazing, and the servers were always kind and on top of your needs. The minute your water was low, within a few minutes it was refilled. I would most definitely recommend coming here without a doubt. I do wish it was a bit brighter in the restaurant for picture purposes though

Had an amazing dinner at Futago! I highly recommend visiting this place for dinner, a date night, or a special night out with friends. Tonight it was just my 4-year old daughter and me. Most small places like this don’t have kids menus or utensils for kids, nothing that we worry about when going out. Much to my surprise the waiter brought over a small plate with a fork and knife that was perfect for her. It was identical to the things she has at home. This was an unexpected nice touch! She absolutely loved grilling her own filet and mushrooms. I ordered the Treasure Box and it did not disappoint!! There is no surprise to why this place is MICHELIN Recommended. I will definitely be back in the near future for a date night with my wife.

The taste and service of the food are excellent.
The only complaint is that
the menu is very difficult to understand.
I think that customer satisfaction will be higher if you respond by posting photos and detailed explanations on the menu.
