About the restaurant
Soft-green walls, black-and-white photos and high ceilings illuminate the affluent crowd for lunch and dinner.
The intimate family setting combined with the professional service just add to the fact that DIVINO is a little culinary diamond in the rough.

We adhere to the craftsmanship of traditional Japanese cuisine. Chef Kenkichi Yamamoto handpicks the freshest ingredients of the season, using them to inspire the creation of all his dishes. Our kaiseki prix fixe menu has traditional Japanese flavors mixed with french elements featuring shun (seasonal) ingredients. The 9 courses range from the chef's interpretation of sashimi to unique steamed, boiled and grilled dishes. We have seasonal fish and fish offerings traditionally found in Japanese cuisine as well as other dishes to order a la carte. The menu is set for you to experience a dinning experience like no other.

I’ve loved every dish here so far and everyone I bring loves it too. I never feel rushed at any time (even when they’re clearly closing). Great chill vibe with exceptional vegan food.

We have dined here at Upper West many times, and we continue to, because the food and service is always great. It's easy to support a business that has a nice staff and a diverse menu with quality ingredients. My wife loves the braised short rib and on this occasion I had the fried chicken sandwich. It's a joy dining here and we'll continue in the future.
