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.

L'Effervescence Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
L'Effervesense was outstanding from start to finish. The food was innovative and executed to perfection with simple yet elegant presentation. The service was precise yet personable.
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.
