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
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.
This is my second time to L'effervescence. Just like the first time, it still blew my mind. From the very first dish to the last, every single one is beautifully made and delicious. I ordered a wine pairing menu, they paired with sake and wines, beautifully done. Everytime I go to Tokyo, I think I will always pay a visit to there.
Exquisite and delectable. Fantastic foods and arrangements with exceptional wine and sake pairings. I would have preferred that explanations of the food being served were in both English and japanese to better accommodate both diners but not a major crime. Looking forward to my next visit.
Poor welcome from French server , arrogant , condescending and disrespectful . agree with previous negative reviews, this server is obnoxious and his service lacked humility . Did not feel welcome or valued as a customer. Though he apologised for his attitude and the Japanese staff who took over were very kind , the poor beginning spoilt the experience .
There seemed no reason for his bad attitude . previous reviewers suggested asking for any Japanese server except this French server , but it seems unreasonable to have the customer take the initiative to avoid bad service.
Food was Creative and the Japanese staff were excellent .
Don't go for business as you might lose the deal and business goodwill if you get this bad server with attitude.
His service was 'out of the norm ' for Japan , lacking humility and kindness .
The philosophy of the restaurant , the food journey and matcha world peace finish , are all at odds with this server's bad attitude .
What was surprising was that previous negative reviews all had similar experience with this server , inexplicable rudeness and bad attitude .
The restaurant needs to address this , otherwise their food story and innovative cuisine will be overshadowed by the (entirely unnecessary and avoidable )bad feelings of customers due to this bad service .
Then dishes are full of surprises. A mixed of western cooking styles with freshly local and seasonal Japanese ingredients. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Nice and cosy environment. My husband and I would definitely go there again if we go to Tokyo.
I was struggling to fault anything! Perfect Lunch! I had been dreaming of dining at a French restaurant but using Japanese ingredients; this time my dream was fulfilled. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to my friends who are planning their trips to Japan. I will certainly to pay a second visit, maybe for dinner next time.
The staff made us very welcome on a rainy afternoon when we arrived.They took our umbrellas and coat and astute to offer us the use of the washroom first seeing that we were caught in the rain.The reception gave no hint of what the dining room was like.But we were so enchanted when we were led into the dining room,it took our breath away.The room was so warm and cozy and it had a genteel bustle to it.Our table had a lovely view of the garden and it added to the great ambiance.We had the une promenade menu .This was the abbreviated dinner menu and it was good value.We had the wine pairing and it was very well matched.The staff had very good knowledge of the wines and food.The food was excellent and i enjoyed every course tremendously.The service was impeccable.I would definitely return if visiting Tokyo again.
