511’s head chef bids on the finest Kobe beef cows, selecting for purchase, in their entirety, only those whose meat is of the highest quality. Lavish use is made of those rare cuts, which one has few chances to savor, in preparation for our genuine Kobe Beef Kaiseki.

Had an incredible meal here on our honeymoon, we did the complete Kobe beef course which had 8 amazing courses. The food was absolutely incredible, every dish was a standout. Great wine list, friendly and attentive staff and a beautiful setting topped it off. Will be recommending to everyone we know coming to Tokyo!

This restaurant never disappoints! With a new seasonal menu, we were treated to exciting courses and tastes. The service continues to be friendly and attentive and the food presentation is explained to enhance enjoyment. We will continue to come back because we always enjoy our meal at Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511.

The whole experience was just spectacular! I was speechless by the way they presented themselves. The waiter and staff were incredibly respectful and it showed through their smiles, gestures and the way they spoke to every guest. It was a little embarrassing when they would guide you to the bathroom every time you get up, but it was a nice way to show that they wanted to assist in any way possible. We had the Complete 7 Course Kobe Beef meal, and we were in love with every part of it! It was mouth-watering and literally melted as soon as it touched your tongue. I didn't want the evening to end. I highly recommend coming here for dinner with a significant other or a group of friends for a fancy, yet relaxing night.

恋人の誕生日で利用しました。
全てのお料理に神戸牛が入っていて、鉄板焼きとは違った形でお肉が楽しめて新鮮でした。濃くもなく薄くもなく、ちょうど良いお味でとても美味しかったです。
ただ、料理が出て来るスピードが少し遅く、またお腹を満たすには量がとても少なく感じました。デザートが付いているのに食事終わりのコーヒー紅茶は有料で、サービス料も3000円なので少し値段と見合ってないと思います。
接客はとても丁寧でよかったのですが、電話予約の際にコースを伝えていたのにコースのメニューを渡されてしまいました。もう少し全てをスムーズにして頂けたらよかったなと思います。お味は本当に良かったです。

We had top of the range Kobe beef A512 and it was awesome. The beef was tender and melt in your mouth. One of the best beef I’ve had. The restaurant is good for a family lunch or dinner.

Absolutely fantastic Kaiseki prepared by caring staff.
We arrived 15min earlier than our reservation, and the store wasn't open yet... We were ok with waiting but the manager decided it's ok to open the store early for us cause it's cold outside.
Our waitress fully explained the menu in English to us, and gave us great recommendations when we asked. She was also very patient when we asked a ton of questions regarding the cuisines served.
Now we both ordered the full course Kaiseki (13800), and I can say we were blown away with how good the food was. It's obvious the chef put a lot of thought into making each dish, a lot of preparation were done just to make something taste so simple but so good. They also used all parts of the high quality A5 beef, grade 11 (hence why the store name, 511), nothing is wasted from the cow.
When we finished our meal, a server greeted us at the door and gave us a souvenir to take home from the manager. Needless to say, it was a nice surprise and we were thrilled. We will definitely come back if we visit Tokyo again. Highly recommend!

I don't like to throw around the term "transcendent," but the steak here is transcendent. We were quite late for our reservation and the staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. Don't go to Japan without having some wagyu. This is a great place to go for that.

Food experience & presentation was excellent!! Lots of wine selection and the staff explanation of the beef cut was educational !
Meal price was inclusive into set menu so it’s reasonably priced but with all the drinks, the bill tabs can get spending!!
Had a Great birthday dinner with my friends and restaurant sent out a nice cheese cake as complimentary gift.
They also gave us gift box of noodle too! Highly recommend for anyone that wants a good Kobe beef educational course!

It was the first time that I went to a more noble restaurant, but I was not disappointed!

We went there to eat a good Kobe sirloin steak and it was amazing. Ofcourse Kobe is a little pricy but it was well worth the money. Alongside the Kobe as the main dish we got 4 other dishes and each of them was delicious as well. Naturally though the Kobe main dish was the highlight!

The great service along the 5 meal menue was not expected and we were positively suprised! The style of the restaurant was very stylish and our overall experience was amazing.

I was happy to obtain a reservation. My friends and I wanted to have Kobe beef. Kobe beef kaiseki 511 satisfied our taste for kobe beef. Walking into the restaurant to the end of the dinner, service was impeccable and impressive. It is a worthy Michelin restaurant. Each course was speechless and you didn’t have to say anything - the food made us want to cry - of course in a good way!!

This is not just high quality dining, this is also Kobe beef education at its finest. The creativity of the course was fantastic and very delicious... 4 dishes brought me close to tears and every dish brought a big smile to my face. You can also dine here on your own just like me. There were several people dining alone. The service was really good, and had good english skills as well. They make you feel special in their restaurant. The price may seem high, but it is worth it. I didn't regret it. This restaurant deserves to be in every restaurant ranking for a good reason... IT IS JUST WONDERFUL

I had a wonderful experience dining at Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511. The deco of the restaurant is very upscale. The inside is very warm and comfortable. All the staff are very professional, friendly, attentive and helpful. They all speak fluent English. They explained all the ingredients of each dish, which type of beef was used as well as how they make it. The food was amazing, especially the kobe beef. The kobe beef was juicy and tender. I asked for medium rare. It was cooked perfectly. The texture of the beef is superior. It is definitely worth visiting this restaurant.

Hands down the absolute best place in Tokyo to eat if you want a once in a lifetime real Kobe beef experience. If you never had Kobe beef, then you must go here to try it for the first time. Even their homemade desserts are great. From the beef, down to the side dishes, everything is great. The customer service is far better than any establishment in Tokyo. It can be pricey for some, so if you want to try Kobe beef once in your life, go here. I have been to Tokyo 3 times and sadly, this was the only trip where I discovered this place and very sad since I will not be returning to Tokyo any time soon.

We tried both the course menus and al carte during two different visits, and both were fabulous times. And don't worry being stuck for three hours having a course meal, the service is swift and at a nice pace usually done within a hour.

Remember, not all Japanese Kobe beef are the same nor prepared the same, and Kobe 511 serves the best grade possible in all of Tokyo.
