Exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are not very familiar with Japanese cuisine but are so glad that we gave this restaurant a try. The atmosphere is awesome. It's a very personal and romantice place. The service was unbeatable. We truly couldn't have asked for a more wonderful dinner. My wife claimed that the Teriyaki Beef Tenderloins was the best beef she had ever tasted. Highly Reccomend for those looking for a truly unique experience.
Splendid Family Restauraunt. They really care and take pride in what they provide (rather like Lugano). Great value. Super three course lunch takeouts for $7 or less.
The proprietors of the very popular Kyoto foray into new culinary territory with an innovative menu in a new neighborhood..
The latest incarnation of a charming tree-lined house turned-culinary-haven shows-off a cozy minimalist decor. The owners of Kyoto expand their popularity for consistent Japanese cuisine by offering dishes such as ahi tuna in a citrus sauce, mouth-watering duck in a cherry sauce and traditional Japanese tonkatsu (pork chops). The southern valley locale adjacent to the historic Wheeler Farm lends a neighborhood feel while attracting business folk at lunch hour, local foodies, and die-hard fans of Kyoto.
New and different.
Reasonably priced, I was pleasantly suprised by the atmosphere and tasty appetizers. Like the title says, Yamasaki is definitely "new and different"... a beautiful fresco painting greets you as you enter the front door, but the food is a cross between fusion and straight Japanese cuisine. Interesting mix.
Lunchtime tends to be somewhat hectic, so I would recommend getting there early.
Finally, the only drawback is that sometimes the table next to me seems to be just listening to my conversations. It's a modestly sized restaurant, so I guess I'd rather be a little crowded than not being able to sit down.
