    Service and food is always great but especially this time. I must’ve marked it was our anniversary. The host and the waiter both wished us Happy Anniversary and we were given champagne. The wagging beef I had was excellent and the halibut and the squash was nice too. We got 10% discount and free parking since we were watching a show at Feinstein’s which was a great bonus!

    Staff was very nice. Professional. It’s been years since I’ve been to Anzu. It’s not the same place. Fresh fish was mediocre. This is no longer a japanese place. :-( I won’t return because of that. But, again, the people working there were fantastic.

    We had an excellent experience at Anzu. The staff were amazing so attentive and checking if we were alright. Topping up drinks. Knowledgeable about all the menus and if we had any questions. The food was wonderful we asked lots of questions and our waiter was more than happy to advise and recommended items. Overall it was a fantastic night will definitely return.

    We planned an evening at the Feinstein Nikko show. It was our first experience with Restaurant Anzu. We first relaxed with a cocktail. Then we started with appetizers, followed by the main course, ending with dessert. It was relaxing and the noise level was comfortable. I would definitely return for an evening of fine food dining.

    There were two of us. We both had the petite Cesar salad which was delicious and unique, lettuce cut up with crunchy bits of toasted seeds or rice. One had the pork chop garnished with salad of lettuce and cherries . The other had two rolls of sushi. They were attractive but not generous with how the fish were slice and the narrowness of the roll. There was not the fatness of the roll which I like. The service was excellent and professional.

    Great meal. Quality of sushi was very good, but not the best I’ve ever had. I wish there had been a bit more variety for the Sushi. As a sushi lover it was a bit limiting, but the Titus and Anzu rolls were really good. The service was very good, attentive, but not invasive which is a great combination. It’s a bit pricey, but overall I had a great time.

    Open table says vaccination proof is expected by the restaurant but this is no longer true. This incorrect statement at the open table reservation downgrades the overall experience at Anzu. Food is very good but portion is very small relative to general American restaurants.
