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.
Chef Namae / L'Effervescence

Excellent food and service at this serene and beautiful Michelin starred restaurant. Foodies will rejoice as will those who can appreciate the value of wonderful food at lunch for a very reasonable price. We had had a lunch the day before at another restaurant that was almost the same price as LEffervescence but was very bad in comparison. Will return next time in Tokyo.

It’s not very often a meal is perfect from the greeting on arrival to the accompanied walk to the cab at the end — in between was flawless, inventive food and drink that built upon each and complemented each in a way that was natural and rooted in a deep understanding of the chef and producers. The friendly staff was attentive, professional, and fun — the pride and enthusiasm was contagious and merited. Easily a top ten meal of 2017!

Outstanding cuisine. Dishes were creative and technicality of a very high standard. We had the 8 glasses wine pairing and 100 points to our Sommelier and choice of wines/sakes - had a selection of hard-to-find wines/sakes which matched the food superbly. Costs certainly reflects the high quality but worth a repeat visit.

今年も夫の誕生日に来訪。特別な日や、美味しいお料理が食べたいと思う時には、必ずこちらをセレクトさせていただいています。もうかれこれ6年目になります。見て美しいのは勿論、食材を活かしたおソースに食感の感動は毎回で、今回はどんなお料理が出てくるんだろうと、いつも楽しみでなりません。得意ではないと思う食材でも、毎回どれもが本当に美味しく感じられるので、もう期待しかない!です。今回すこし不得意の鳩とのことでしたか、変更することなくそのままオーダーしましたがやはり臭みや癖もなく、お肉がつやつやで最高に美味しかったです!!かぼちゃと牛タンの組み合わせも本当に美味しい!最初から最後まで感動がやみませんでした。やっぱりすごい!!と今回も思わせていただきました。
従業員さんの丁寧で柔らかい接客も、とても気に入っています。いつもリラックスできるお席も心地の良さを感じています。
わたしにとっては最上のレストランです!!

Another Michelin star experience on our worldwide endeavors to experience as many as possible in the current time when we have the opportunity to do so. Apart from finding the place in Tokyo, the experience was worthy of the high expectations we had. Excellent creative French-Japanese food with super wine pairing, professional attention to our wishes and food allergies and limitations, very good service. Zac, Ronald, Hiroshi took great quality care of us. The tea ceremony at the end was exquisite. The only thing I would add is more textures for “western” tastes, but no doubt the tastes and textures offered are true to the location and culture in which the restaurant operates. Very expensive, but very much worth it.

 (Singapore)·Dined on 3 November 2017

Amazing restaurant. Food is an outstanding combination of French and Japanese cuisine with highest standards when it comes to quality of ingredients. Every single plate of our 8 course menu could amaze us. Wine pairing (focus on natural vines & nihonshu) recommended, as the sommelier does a great job matching the at times complex taste/aroma of the dishes with our booze. Service, again outstanding. Maybe the best I had in Japan so far. The whole experience of this restaurant is to step out of reality for a couple of hours and to indulge into a culinary experience on highest level. Will go again!

The food and experience were both outstanding. We dined at several other restaurants in Japan that have received either more Michelin stars, or have higher rankings in the WB50/AB50, and we'll be coming back to L'Effervescence first.

First of the service was excellent. Let’s talk about the food. My favorite dish was Just Like An Apple Pie. The other dishes flavors did not mesh well together. The turnip dish which was their signature dish was juicy but it lacks flavors, I think it needs a good protein to go with the dish. Overall, I was a bit disappointed for a two Michelin star restaurant.

Restaurant is small but cozy and clean. Service was good and the staff speaks very good english. The food plating was amazing. Ingredients were fresh. Every dish had a unique taste. We ordered a bottle of red wine but was not available. We were recommended another bottle and it was satisfying. The only thing I had to share is that I found a piece of hair half way into my dessert and it was disgusting. I would never had expected this to happen in a highly regarded restaurant in Japan! The restaurant apologized and gave me a new one (exactly the same dessert), but I was already full and disgusted. I would have expected a better explanation than just saying sorry. I didn't want to ruin my dinner with my friends and just sent the new dish back to the kitchen.

Overall experience was awesome until I saw the hair half way through my dessert...

噂に違えずクリエイティブなお料理です。特に酢味噌とバルサミコ酢のコンビネーションは新しい発見でした。ノンアルのペアリングも工夫が多く、私の連れが頼んでましたが、満足されてたようです。アルコールのペアリングは日本酒もあり少々のアドベンチャーですが、もう少し冒険があっても良かったかもしれません。フードはダイナミックというよりは、綺麗にまとまったコース感を感じました。多分本当の評価は異なるシーズンをまたいだ方が良いのだと思います。やり過ぎず東京グッドセンスのレストランだと思います。
