    I like the environment and the way they present foods, but their foods are not as good as expected. Although I don’t like raw fish, the quality is not high enough w.r.t the price. The uni is not fresh, like melted already. Also I can taste sth like blood in the main course, the quail. Along with that, some herb they used makes me feel sick. What’s more, that herb came across all the dishes. After the dinner, I still felt hungry.

    Overall the dishes are creative and delicious. I was a little disappointed by the entree and dessert. The entree is tempura quail with tomato sauce, and the two ingredients do not mix well. The dessert is a chocolate cake that tastes standard.

    Absolutely delicious, very unique tastes and interesting pairings that offer something out of the ordinary. Makes you think about flavor pairings you might not have otherwise maybe to introduce into your own cooking. Would prefer they just incorporate the service charge into their food prices. Decor and ambiance were a bit uninspired. Fantastic service and very generous little bonus plates that weren’t on the menu.

    The food was outstanding and the wine pairing perfect. The issue that took away from the joy of such a wonderful dinner was the 20% gratuity automatically added to the check plus another tip for the wait staff of another 20%. The total tip was $160 for a dinner/wine charge of $410.00 or %40 of the check...isn't that kind of high? I normally tip between 20 to 25% of the check. Not the ideal take away for a great night out.

    I went there with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. Orsa & Winston is a fabulous restaurant with a reasonable price, given it is a Michelin-starred restaurant in 2021 and 2019. The menu is fixed, which means you don't need to think about what to order. We even got a few extra treats that day. I enjoy the Satsuki rice porridge the most. I can't imagine how the cream and trout roe would be harmonized to a magical extent. In addition to top-notch food, I also enjoy the cute atmosphere and good service there. Flawless fine dining experience.

    From start to finish a truly excellent dining experience on par with French Michelian starred restaurants and better than my two visits to French Laundry. The reservation staff accommodated us respectfully,, the service staff were attentive and helpful, the dishes were all impeccable, inspired and divine. Absolutely get the wine pairing - each were perfectly matched and very much enhanced every delicious morsel. May this establishment retain its extraordinary caliber and flourish.

    Googled Michelin star restaurants before we came on holiday and this came up and was just 10 min walk from hotel. Was easy to book from UK through open table. We knew before hand that we wouldn't know menu till we got there. I read reviews and everyone seemed to suggest the wine pairing. We have done a few tasting menus back home, but never done the wine pairing. So tonight we did, so glad we did, we are red wine drinkers but boy I could easily go back to drinking white wine again, and the orange wine was amazing. The wine waiter was so knowledgeable and took time to explain all about the wine region and producer. Our waiter was equally as good and explained in detail what chef had produced. We were given the choice to sit st chef table right beside the open kitchen. Was fascinating watching the chef cook and plate the dishes. It wasn't the cheapest dining experience but then again we have never done wine pairing before. I would definitely recommend

    They have an optional item for an additional fee but definitely worth it. The menu changes regularly but the night we were there it was a seafood porridge. Rich, comforting and a do not pass up choice. I really don't think there was anything on the menu that was a miss. The perfect touches like the rich smooth soups, delicate shatter of perfectly battered fried quail, garnishes of unusual perfectly paired citrus fern, beautifully caramelized milk bread with our main menu to soak up the all of the perfect sauces. Just go.

    Place looks pretty good. Service was okay. Food started pretty good and I was excited what else was coming. But by the main course, it came out under done. And they didn’t offer any changes to dish and just took it away. That wasn’t kind of service I was expecting at a michellin Star restaurant. I don’t think I will go back.

    We found this restaurant in the Michelin Guide. The food looked most interesting and we we not in anyway disappointed. The clever and sensitive merging of Italian and Oriental cuisine works perfectly and the wine flight was excellent. Our only regret was that our fellow diners did not show the respect due to this artistry!

    Perfect service …let’s start with that. Incredibly inventive, flavorful food. Wine pairing is a must (says someone who ordinarily doesn’t care about wine…at all). A real privilege to dine here. More of en event that a meal really, in the best ways. Like London Calling or the Joshua Tree…a SIXTH star is really needed.

    I do understand it’s a specialty restaurant but they need to give an alternative menu in case not everyone in our party is interested to take their tasting menu. Our main course was a quail and it was merely ok. The dessert, the menu said ice cream but what came out was an over whipped cream, a little disappointing end of a good meal. The rest of the food was great but it’s not enough to salvage the whole experience.
