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

Amazing food close or at 3 star level for any restaurant globally out there. Perfectly combining Japanese produce with french cooking techniques. We enjoyed the lunch, which was a great deal at 10k ¥. Scallop sashimi, Tokyo turnip, Ayu in a buckwheat crepe, summer venison with sea snail purée all where outstanding. Quite exciting for me the freeze dried and fried Ayu for me, but the best in taste was the venison with the umami of the sea snail purée.
Just above almost every restaurant I was before was the impeccable service. Maybe we are not used to the incredible politeness of Japanese people right now at the beginning of our journey through Japan but this was truly world class. The wine is definitely on the the more adventurous side with lots of biodynamic or vin naturel producers on the list (especially from Japan). I took the special pairing and it was quite exciting.

Lunch at L'Effervescence was my first Michelin dining experience in Tokyo and I will absolutely be coming back. Service from all angles was impeccable and great for first time fine diners: attentive, friendly, and approachable. The food is truly inspired, unique cuisine that blends Japanese inspirations with haute cuisine technique and presentation. Top favourites were the fried ayu in buckwheat crêpe and a wonderful Okinawan agu pork dish. Our sommeliers pick of champagnes, wines, and sake were excellent, and I gained a deeper appreciation of sake as a result! Unforgettable.

Hands down one of the best places I’ve had the pleasure to experience beating even those of three Michelin stars.

The service was top notch from the inquiry several days prior to arrival and throughout the meal from start to finish. The staff definitely went above and beyond to make sure that nothing was left up to chance or question.

The location of the restaurant was definitely not on the beaten path and would be a bit of a struggle to find if you’re not looking out for the stone sign. Once in however, the ambience was that of a place far away from what was outside. It was calming.

The portions are more than generous for being a 9 course meal with each course getting better and better. The wine pairing was just as spectacular as the meal.

All in all, this is a place that’s worth coming back to.

If you like eating basically 7 courses of salads and 3 desserts you will like this place. Annoying pressure from staff to get overpriced champagne and wine using glaring eyes if you don’t order.

My husband and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary and honeymoon for two weeks in Japan. We decided to have lunch here on the last full day of our journey. The meal opened with a small golden bowl with liquor or wine of some sort (I forget exactly what it was, but it was lovely and set the mood for the afternoon), followed by seven courses, and closed with a matcha tea ceremony. Additionally, the kitchen provided a sweet treat of caramelized sugar sculpted into a cylindrical shape with holes cut out, featuring a lit candle inside; on the plate, the kitchen staff wrote out in piped chocolate the words "Happy Anniversary" (they'd reached out to me in response to my reservation, asking if we were celebrating anything and what they could write on our plate). Quite simply, the service was impeccable and incredibly well executed; the food was amazing, both in aesthetic and flavors and embodied true culinary artistry and creativity; the atmosphere was serenely beautiful and encouraged us to linger and enjoy the moment. It was clear that everyone, from the head chef, kitchen staff, servers, to the front of house staff took great pride and care in their work. If I could visit more frequently, I would but unfortunately, geography has us beat as we live in the U.S. We're already contemplating when we'll next visit Japan and hopefully, L'Effervescence! I highly recommend anyone visit, whether for a special occasion or the pure desire to have an exquisite culinary experience. Thank you to everyone at L'Effervescence for making our trip so memorable! I'll be following you from afar on Instagram. :)

2019年3月に利用させていただきました。外国人の方が多く、サービスの方も英語での対応がなれている様子でした。(先に調べていなかったのですが、意外に感じました)お店は暗めの和の印象で、お料理もフレンチといえども味は和食寄りな印象を受けました。個人的には薄い目の上品な味付けが好きなので、京料理のような味の濃くない和食が好きな方には合うかと思います。お酒はお料理に合うようにソムリエの方に選んで出していただきましたが、個性的なビオワインも多く、初めての体験も味わえました。ワインを飲み慣れている方にも良いかと思います。最後にお抹茶をいただいたのも、なかなか普段いただく機会がないので、嬉しいサプライズでした。
