Kaiseki
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.

This was my second visit to Kobe Beef Kaiseki. The food is fantastic, a very good mix of modern/creative and traditional. The service was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive.

As a general note the experience was not as expected. Service was very good and as paid for ,however the food was way below than what was expected. Perhaps the experience downgraded even more because we have selected the japanese style set menu.I do not recommend visiting it.

Soooo good and well worth the money. Staff is obviously Japanese but very patient and will attempt to communicate in English as much as possible...like the rest of Tokyo. Food was everything I needed...over pay for in America for and more!
If you are worried about the price, go for the lunch sitting.

We were on a 2-week holiday in Japan and booked this restaurant ahead of our arrival in Tokyo.A superb dining experience. We had the Japanese style Kobe beef Kaiseki dinner set and it was amazing from the start to the end, from the detailed presentation to the taste! It was truly a journey of culinary tasting where every dish had its own ‘story’ to tell. We upgraded our Kobe beef to the ‘precious’ (premium) cut and it was well worth it. We were looked after by Sasaki-san who was knowledgeable with the ingredients that go into each and every dish. Will definitely come back next time we’re in Tokyo and the restaurant is highly recommended.

The food was delicious, and the staff were amazing. As you walk in everyone greets you and you are taken to your table. The restaurant is quiet with a modern atmosphere. There are several courses to choose from. My friend and I got the traditional Japanese course and the Western course. Even though my friend is very picky she ate everything and enjoyed it. The servers explained the food in detail and gave you tips on the best way to eat it. They also lent us umbrellas as we were leaving as it was raining and we had none. All in all, it was incredible food and great service.

Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511 was wonderful. The best steak I have ever had. Great service, attention to the customer and pride in their craft. If you are in Tokyo and want to try Kobe Beef, this is the place. Outstanding.

Overpriced. Felt rushed even though the restaurant was empty. definitely a tourist trap from reading previous reviews that say it is fantastic. Was not worth it. There are so many better Kobe places in Tokyo than this overpriced one.

Lunchtime reservation, staff was attentive, atmosphere was subdued and upscale. We were attracted by their (reasonably priced) lunch menu. We visited on our last day in Tokyo, to check off our bucket list of experiences not to miss while in Japan. We were pleasantly surprised!

I ordered the very expensive kobe steak and was overwhelmed by the taste, so tender and delicious! Despite the lunch specials, which my children enjoyed, I couldn’t resist ordering their premium steak chef’s specialty. I was so glad I did, savoring every last bite of this meal.

Their kobe steak was definitely worth the splurge! The chef was also kind enough to whip up a seafood dish (not on their lunch menu) for a vegetarian in our group. This was a meal to remember, but I would recommend this restaurant at lunchtime if you don’t want to break the bank.

Went there for a belated birthday celebration and it definitely did not disappoint. We had the Summer Menu Set Course and enjoyed every bit of it. The service was impeccable and the lady who looked after us really impressed us with her knowledge of the ingredients and the menu being served. It was a joyful and fun experience! I would definitely come back again on my next trip!

The service that I read about in other reviews was absolutely right. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were greated by every member of the staff. We were escorted to our table and my husbands and sons jackets hung. The menu was thoroughly explained in English. We ordered the western with 120grams of Kobe sirloin. It was absolutely delicious with and without the amazing soy sauce mouse. It was expensive but worth every penny. The two waitresses and wine steward were very attentive. We had a question about if they used the other parts of the cow and the waitress gave us a very knowledgeable explanation. All of the courses were delicious. They asked if we needed a taxi after we were done with desert, and had one waiting for us when we finished dinner. The waitress escorted us to the taxi and She explained to the driver where to take us back to our hotel. We would definitely go back the next time we will be in Japan

Delicious food and excellent service. Some courses in the 7 course money such as fried foie gras were not the absolute best but the Kobe beef steak melted in my mouth. The soy sauce mousse was incredibly tasty.

The service here is impeccable! We had the Japanese style Kobe beef course - it is the one that is roughly 13,000 Yen. Everything was delicious and so well prepared. I would highly recommend it even though it is a bit pricey. We went here for the first night of our honeymoon, and they brought us out a separate dessert in addition to the one included in our menu which was very nice.

Several dishes were bland with non matching flavors. Main issue, however, was the meat. Sirloin was very good, but Chateaubriand was no better than a regular non-wagyu filet. $200 for the Chateaubriand that was significantly less
tender and marbled than the sirloin was very disappointing and I feel completely insulted to have paid that much for such a disappointing piece of meat.

We were looking for a Kobe Beef Kaiseki experience in Tokyo and Kobe Beef 511 came up on several searches so we went with high expectations that were certainly met. First of all the service was caring and fabulous. Each course while beautifully served was clearly introduced and instructions on how to proceed which were greatly appreciated. The presentation was beautiful and the food was fabulous. Can I mention the caring service again! Meeting us at the taxi upon arrival and escorting us back to a taxi when finished. I cannot recommend highly enough!

We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday, it was our first time in Japan and were looking for a restaurant known for serving Kobe beef. First off, getting reservations is difficult in Japan, but fortunately Kaiseki 511 uses Open Table, so we were able to book a table before we left home. The staff is extremely attentive, especially our main waiter, they speak good English and they have English menus. It is expensive, but worth it to us because of the good quality Kobe beef and excellent service. Overall, it was a fantastic dining experience.

Best Kobe beef I’ve ever had in my life. Our waiter was courteous, knowledgeable and patient, making great recommendations. The food arrived very timely, and we were treated to the best medium-rare beef ever that was moist, tender, well cooked and evenly marbled. The side dishes were amazing, and they served it with a soy mousse butter that complemented it perfectly. A wonderful experience and very affordable considering the quality.

I visited Kobe beef 511 with a friend for dinner and we had an amazing experience. We took the set Japanese Kobe meal with 6-7 courses. The flavors, the presentation, the variety, the combinations and the food itself were PERFECT. The restaurant and the staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. I highly recommend if you are interested to try top class Japanese food.
