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 overall dining experience was superb from the time I entered the restaurant to leaving it. The food was excellent. Ingredients used were reflective of the season and the pacing of the dishes was just right.

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。

妻の誕生日のお祝いで、3年くらい前にはじめて利用しました。その際、壁際の広い席に案内して頂き、大変感激いたしました。今回も同様の席にして頂きました。一番印象に残ったのは猪のキャラメルです。最初に猪のダシがありきとのこと。その2か月後にフィットする食材が見つかったということで、料理の門外漢には凄いの一言です。また利用させて頂きます。

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。

I highly recommend this restaurant. Get there before they get their well deserved third star.

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.

A bit too formal. Food and service are both attentive but not warm. Tea service is impressive. Sommelier could have told us more about drinks pairing option. I ordered a glass of white but the waiter did not let me taste and just pour to the glass. It turned out not my favorite. Food wise, we like the apple pie, turnip and the wild duck.

Our first visit to L'Effervescence during our Tokyo travel. The location is within a residential area about 15 mins walk from the station. The staff was very accommodative and friendly, they also well note about our food allergy concerns and adjust our menu accordingly.

We had the 7-dishes lunch menu, the food was served under good temperature and fits to the theme. Food was amazing and the main course pigeon is by far one of the best I've ever had! The creativity and details attentive of food are spot-on and we definitely will be back for another visit!

We chose Promenade lunch set menu and we loved it so much. Every dish was tasty and looked like a piece of art. The food is like a fusion cuisine using Japanese ingredients and cooking in French style. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to someone who like to try Japanese French. BTW, it is not so expensive to have lunch in such a Michelin star restaurant. Definitely recommend to come in lunch time, it is a real bargain.

The only negative thing to say about the place was the music playing in the background - cheesy 80s pop does not do the restaurant justice. dont understand why restaurants of this obvious quality dont put the same emphasis on matching the soundscape with the same care and attention to detail they so obviously append to their interior and exterior design.

The service was friendly and informative and not intrusive. Well done. The ffod was excellent, particularly the desserts which were superb.

和のフレンチ、本当にすばらしいお料理でした。最初の一皿から、デザートまでとっても美味しく頂きました。サービスと雰囲気で少し厳しい点数を付けさせて頂きました(改善の期待を込め)。またぜひお伺いをできればとは思います。

サービス:デザート前にチーズをお願いしましたが、「ブルー等の香りの強いのは苦手」と何度も伝えたにも関わらず、ブルーチーズがしっかりと出てきました。4種類のチーズのプレートでしたので、ブルーをなしにして頂くか、異なるチーズを頂けると良かったかなと思いました。また、ロゼシャンペンのボトルをオーダーさせて頂きましたが、お願いをした時にソムリエの方が気まずそうな顔をしていました。伝えたいことがあったのならば、伝えて欲しかったなと思いました。美味しいシャンペンでしたが:)

雰囲気:お店の真ん中のテーブルで大騒ぎをされている男性方がいらっしゃいました。電話で大声で話され、サービスの方の説明が聞こえない時もありました。裕福な方々かと思いますが、そのテーブルだけを見ると、居酒屋のような雰囲気さえあり、個室に入れて頂くなりのご対応を頂ければと思いました。
