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 service from the staff is impeccable. Location was really neat and ambience of the restaurant gives a posh yet relaxing vibe to it. The wines recommended were exceptional. The food seems a little on the experimental side with flavors you can never find in common meals. I would say the taste is unique with everything that is put together.

The quality of the service was excellent. The food was delicious and creative. The private space that gave us , become the difference to be able to have a fantastic gastronomic experience. Was the differential , because in this way, we could have this opportunity since we traveled with our 10 month old baby. Perhaps in another well reputed restaurant, would not have the same opportunity.

This was a very special experience. Some of the dishes were better than others but the effort was amazing. It is not a place for picky eaters. One must be open minded and be willing to "go with the flow". Definitely a place for foodies!

Restaurant is located in the Roppongi area right pass a small cemetery. It is known for using natural and local ingredients and chef provided a 7-course prix fixe menu. Intimate table setting..most of the dining room tables faced their elegant and inviting garden. Easy listening light instrumental background music is played throughout the meal. Pigeon, spiny lobster, bean and shiso--flavored edible foam to begin the meal; Apple pie is stuffed with finely diced firefly squid, fennel, Japanese knotweed--cute presentation and delicious; Local mountain vegetables were gently cooked in whey, sansho ravigote, mushroom and black olive--impressive plating, showcase of various regional vegetables grown locally; Tokyo turnip, parsley, Basque ham & brioche--Simmered for four hours until tender, tasty and full of flavor; Sweet onion soup, chicken and bamboo shoot, cultured cream and shrimp caramel--creamy, well-seasoned and delicious; By the sixth course, we were given a set of eight different knives to choose from for the meat course. Pure race black pork roasted by wood fire, giant butterbur and blue cheese, sea lettuce, spring cabbage--Okinawa breed pork, a favorite, moist and tasty; dessert is the biwa-manger and amazake mousse, matcha cake, sweet clover flower ice cream --delectable and refreshing; Finally, Mignardises, Matcha, World Peace--nice presentation of chocolates. Chocolate lollipops displayed beautifully. The surprising lollipop center reminds me of the cool crackling pop rocks candy of the 80's..that sizzling sound as it dissolves in your mouth. Mignardises were a perfect gesture. A professional detailed demonstration of serving Matcha Tea wraps up the meal. Chef prepared slices of Special Cakes to take with us. Restaurant used several different servers to explain each course. Service was immaculate. Superb ambiance. Thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous and unforgettable meal..my first using French technique with Japanese flavors. Staff arranged taxi for our return.

Great ambience which won't make you fell too uptight while in a fine dining place. We also could find that chef really spent lots of efforts on improving the dining experiences and make every bite of the fusioned dish more enjoyable. However, not really satisfied with serving speed. From sitting down till the first dish/ wine .already 30-40 min late while the customers sitting latter than us already got served. Moreover, felt pressured after telling the restaurant given the feedbacks was "restaurant is very crowded tonight and kitchen was busy with the previous table". I don't think this the answer expected.

We booked this for my Birthday lunch while we were visiting Tokyo and we were blown away by every aspect of the meal. The service was impeccable and the team clearly have enormous pride and passion for what they do. The local ingredients were cooked to perfection and I would go as far as saying this is one of the best meals i have ever had. Great for a special occasion.

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.

My wife and I only had enough time for one "big ticket" dinner on our trip to Tokyo and chose L'Effervescence over several other high-level, high-cost options. We were delighted with the experience. The food was incredible -- we still discuss the onion soup -- and the quiet setting provided a much needed opportunity for us to relax and reconnect. The service was also flawless, and we especially appreciated the extra-effort and personality put forward by Akio Matsumoto; his love for sake and wine truly shines through in the pairings he selected as well as in his willingness and ability to teach us about the unique characteristics and history of each wine and sake he poured. It sounds strange to discuss "value" for such an extravagant meal, but we both felt that L'Effervescence delivered great bang-for-the-buck. Time and money willing, we look forward to dining at L'Effervescence again.

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。
