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.
Excellent service, top grade Kobe beef quality!
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.
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.
Amazingly priceworthy if you want to try Kobé beef. They have different meatcuts depending on your hunger and what you want to try. Great service !!!!!
The Kobe beef and the service was outstanding!
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!
Our water glass was empty most of our dining experience. We asked for refill many times. We did not get water before we left when we had asked our water to be refilled.
We had a wonderful time at this lovely kaiseki restaurant. The staff were so eager to please, the ambience was lovely and the food was absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend it and the Kobe beef course with 8 different dishes was beautiful to look at as well as very tasty.
The food doesn’t live up to the ratings and the price, but very polite and friendly staff.
We absolutely loved our experience at Kaiseki 511. The 511 special meal lunch set is a fantastic value and the service there is exceptional and very tourist-friendly. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking to try high-quality Japanese Kobe on a budget!
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.
great service. staff explained every dish in great detail.
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!!
A cozy spot to enjoy a truly delicious Kobe beef dinner. The waiter described each course beautifully in English as well, which was much appreciated. Worth every penny.
Friendly staff :)
Super nice place! Great service, tasty food, juicy kobe beef! SUPERB!
They also give us surprise for our honeymoon, super adorable cheesecake with lovely flower petals.
Fantastic place and food!
Food was great, the location / decoration was a bit old-fashionned, but the service was great!
Best meat we ever had in our lives. Everything was just perfect!
The service was exceptional and the staff is well versed in foreign languages including English and Chinese. However, the food was subpar and not the wagyu I was expecting to enjoy for the price I paid.
Friendly staffs, delicious food, excellent service
We had an amazing experience. The food was delicious, lovely atmosphere and top service.
It was a little cold (not jacket cold), but I would have preferred 2-5 degrees warmer.
One of my best dinners ever had
Exquisite, delicate and delicious. Excellent service too!
An experience! The food the service the atmosphere were all over the top. Attention to detail makes all the difference. Well worth the money they will spoil you here.
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
This place has amazing service and food. We were lucky enough to have the A5 12 grade wagyu! Definitely a must try !
Service was spectacular- A5-12 beef was unforgettably delicious.
Brought my mum-in-law here and she was suitably impressed! We all loved the Western course and the beef was so big and superbly cooked. Great dining experience!
Lovely staff wenjin was particularly helpful by explaining the dishes
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.
We had a great evening. The Kobe meat was delicious. Personel was kind but could be a little more agressive in filling our glasses. We got a good explination about the Kobe beef and how its quality is build up. Really worth all!
lovely service - amazing food - the kobe beef was heaven
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.
