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.

It didn't meet our expectations. The price was so expensive but the quality of the beef was not that good

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

The only reason not to consider this is the price, which is high. Otherwise it was fantastic. A very unique experience and amazingly attentive service. The food was creative and so good it was hard to stop ordering.

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.

Food delicious and service excellent. The table dividers between patron is moveable and didn’t seem safe for Covid.

The proximity between customers was a bit too close for safety especially during Covid times.

The volume in restaurant got louder and louder through the night as more patrons came in.

We had dinner on the street so you couldn't say the noise level was only moderate. But, since my friend and I were the sole occupants of the streetside hut I'll say it was anyway. And with that said, the meal was excellent! Grilled beef tongue, mushrooms, and sake for appetizers, and very barely grilled wagyu beef (I've forgotten the cut) for the main course. A little pricey but you are getting what you paid for - exceedingly tasty and tender beef. The manager herself took care of our table, and she was charming. I will go again.

They have outdoor seating on the street in front of the restaurant but we ended up inside which they had dividers between tables. Great service and very authentic since we noticed lots of Japanese groups dined there. Portions are small and expensive but you’ll still be able to fill up.

This was my husband's birthday party celebration and Yakiniku Futago exceeded our expectations. Now during COVID restaurants suffer the most and in some places it affects the service but not here!!! They sat us in the private room (I did mention it was a birthday celebration but didn't ask for a specific arrangement), waiter and the other staff were above and beyond and the food is absolutely delicious!!! Definitely recommend for a date night, special occasion or just dinner with excellent Japanese bbq...

This restaurant is so amazing. The wagyu is the best I've ever tried . The service is amazing. The cultural background and structure of meal display is unique. I loved every dish I tried. The treasure box was so cool , Highly recommended for anyone wanting A class Japanese cuisine or the best wagyu dishes.

The outdoor set up felt private and enjoyable. The grill was outside so we were able to cook everything, so fun! The wagyu and short rib were so tasty. Sushi was delicious too. We had Yuku martinis and the sake both good. I recommend a meal here!

We ordered rice, meats and veggies but the rice did not come until long after the veggies and meats came and everything was cooked. It was awkward timing to have all the veggies and meats out but no rice to eat it with. I know pandemic dining must be hard but they could have held off bringing the food until the rice was coming since the rice is meant to be eaten with the meat and veggies and not as a separate side dish. We ate outside, for a little bit, there must have been a smoker outside because we smelled cigarettes for a little bit while eating. The staff was nice and helpful.
