About L'Effervescence

A Message from L’effervescence
Flavors we adore from this island where we were born and raised, and savors that have travelled from all over the world to see us.
Both are somehow destined to meet on the plate.
We come together to create a harmonious whole.
Our restaurant is a hermitage in the city – for three to four hours, we hope you can escape from busy bustling life.
Feel like you are deep in the forest or in the big ocean as you appreciate the blessings of nature.
Never forgetting the diligence and patience of the farmer, picture the magic of the invisible microorganisms in a glass or on a plate that effervesce your body and mind.
Welcome.

The quality of the service was excellent. The food was delicious and creative. The private space that gave us , become the difference to be able to have a fantastic gastronomic experience. Was the differential , because in this way, we could have this opportunity since we traveled with our 10 month old baby. Perhaps in another well reputed restaurant, would not have the same opportunity.

This was a very special experience. Some of the dishes were better than others but the effort was amazing. It is not a place for picky eaters. One must be open minded and be willing to "go with the flow". Definitely a place for foodies!

Great ambience which won't make you fell too uptight while in a fine dining place. We also could find that chef really spent lots of efforts on improving the dining experiences and make every bite of the fusioned dish more enjoyable. However, not really satisfied with serving speed. From sitting down till the first dish/ wine .already 30-40 min late while the customers sitting latter than us already got served. Moreover, felt pressured after telling the restaurant given the feedbacks was "restaurant is very crowded tonight and kitchen was busy with the previous table". I don't think this the answer expected.

さる事ながら、その一皿を運ぶスタッフの方々の質の高さにも驚かされました。
スタッフの1人が気がきく。と言うのではなく、誰でもが、丁寧に返答でき、動ける。 最高の一品をお持ちしましたよ。と
熱意が伝わってくる感じと言いましょうか。 お誕生日に伺ったのですが、忘れられないディナーになりました。 またぜひ伺いたいと思います。

We booked this for my Birthday lunch while we were visiting Tokyo and we were blown away by every aspect of the meal. The service was impeccable and the team clearly have enormous pride and passion for what they do. The local ingredients were cooked to perfection and I would go as far as saying this is one of the best meals i have ever had. Great for a special occasion.

We had an amazing evening. The food is excellent. Fully deserves the 2 Michelin stars. But the service is 5 stars. All the details are taken care of. We were made welcome since we came in and throughout a tremendously enjoyable evening. It couldn't be a better evening to close our 2 week stay in Japan.

an absolutely outstanding meal topped only by the attentive service. after a few good french drops matching paired wines included a Japanese red and wide variety of sake. Got the impression the sommelier had a free range to let us taste whatever was of interest. sure if sake is not your thing he would have found something to suit. very knowledgeable.

訪問前から料理は美味しいと思っていたのでかなりハードルが上がっていたが、それでもやはり美味しく感じる料理の質の高さに感動。今回はお酒の選択をソムリエさんに全面的にお願いしたが、想像以上に美味しいボトルが出てきてさらに感動。
支払額がかなりのものなので普段使いは出来ないが、それなりにお金をかけてもいいと思えるディナーであれば選択肢の筆頭にあげてもいいと思う。

いろいろな意味でユニークなレストランです。モダンフレンチとのことですが、実際には食材にも、調理方法にも、かなり和の要素が入っています。外国人のお客さまの姿も目立ちますが、たしかに日本でなくては味わえない「フレンチ」なのだと思います。
店内はかなりモダンかつシックでオシャレですが、わりと気軽な雰囲気もあります。フレンチらしからぬ音楽がわりと大きめのボリュームで流れていて、無国籍感満点です。
料理は野菜を多用し、肉も軽めのものが多く、ヘルシー志向です。一方で味付けは塩がしっかりきいているので、物足りないことはないでしょう。同じ素材の季節的変化を楽しむ「定点」観測用の料理もあるなど、大変に工夫されています。
予約を取るのは大変難しい状態ですが、じっくりと順番が来るのを待つ意味はあると思います。

My husband and I went to L'Effervesence during our honeymoon in Japan. I chose the restaurant because I had read that it was one of Asia's best and that the chef had previously worked at The Fat Duck in Britain.

We were not only impressed by the impeccable service, including detailed introductions to every dish and suggestions to sample the best sake, but also taken away by the complexity of the menu. I liked that the restaurant wasn't overly pretentious despite being in an upmarket area. All of the staff was extremely friendly (as you'd expect in Japan), warm and attentive.

As for the dishes, I especially admired the Amadai tilefish, the "apple pie" in a red box and sweet onion soup. The vegetable salad included more than 50 ingredients from around Japan!

Thank you for a fantastic experience; it was definitely one of the best restaurants we've been to.

A delightfully urbane lunch, sophisticated, flavorful, delicate and a sheer pleasure. Even dessert was good. Not as flashy as narisawa or as complicated as ryugin but all three are amongst the best meals I've had anywhere in the world.

2012年、2013年、そして2017年の今回が、3回目の来店でした。実は、このお店での美食体験が、私のミシュランの星付きレストランでの美食巡りのきっかけとなっています。
久しぶりの来訪でしたし、星が増えた分、どのような変化があるのかしらと、とても楽しみにお邪魔しました。
以前よりも、サーバーの方とお客様との垣根が下がり、インターラクティブな様子に嬉しく思いました。
お料理は、生江シェフの、食材の持つうまみを引き出しながらも、絶妙な加減で新しい味を作り上げるセンスを堪能させていただきました。
日本人のシェフだからこそ出せる、日本にあるフレンチのお店しか出せない味を楽しみたい方にお勧めです。

料理、サービス、雰囲気は大変気に入っております。個人的にシャンパーニュ、ブルゴーニュがすきなのですが、グラスワインの数が少なく,とても残念でした。お店の格や料理にも合う、もう少し上等なものの方が相応しいような気がします。(同伴した友人も同意見でした。)グルメ友達の間でもペアリングワインの評判はあまりよくないようですし、日本酒のセレクトもNGだと言っておりました。ワインのセレクト以外は本当に素晴らしいと思います。

We arrived at 7 and finished the dinner around 10:30 or later. It took a while they asked about the first drink. And it took a while until the first dish arrived. It was tiny and we quickly finished. Then second dish was also late... It was not nice moment to imagine food or enjoy the stomp sphere because we were hungry!! Overall it was too slow they served dishes. And the waiters didnt notice even though our glasses were almost empty or empty. I became so sleepy because it took too long but they didn't even notice and kept going in that way. They should know the pace how people enjoy the food - not just doing their own way. I assume the food was good but I was so disappointed at overall services.
