My first time to visit this place last weekend and needless to say... AMAZING. A Japanese cuisine with a French twist.

It has a very romantic and classy ambiance which makes this place an ideal restaurant to experience intimate dining cuisine.

Yes, it's very pricey since most of the main ingredients used are imported from Japan.

My Dining Highlights:

The A5 Wagyu Beef Steak from the Satsuma Prefecture of Japan with it's tender meat feels like it melts in your mouth. Its so tasty and buttery not your usual beef meat flavor as evidenced by its impeccable marbling.

Another buttery classic on the menu --- the Foie Gras with it's espresso coffee reduction sauce. A dish to die for.

Sea Urchin, "Uni" from Hokkaido, Japan is an impressive dish prepared by the chef herself.

Celebrated our anniversary with prix fixe dinner at Keiko a Nob Hill - outstanding!! Japanese French fusion with imaginative twists as we delighted in each of 7 or so courses. Splurged on the wine pairing as well and enjoyed the selections immensely! Expensive is putting it mildly, but really enjoyed this restaurant and absolutely recommend it to the well heeled foodie crowd.

We came here for its 2 Michelin stars status with minimal expectations. We got ushered to a rather simple dining room. Once the first dish came, our curious palate were satisfied wanting more. Every dish was so flavorful and beautifully handcrafted to perfection. The caviar with Japanese uni was divine as well as the foie gras. I only wish there were more dishes to consume as every dish was a bit small in size. Finding a parking spot is rather very scarce and the street is quite hilly. There is a parking garage nearby that opens until 10pm on Sacramento St. Use "SpotHero app" to find the nearest garage bec no parking spot unless you get lucky.

We were visiting here for the weekend and my husband booked us in for an early Valentine's Day dinner. We all had to arrive at 7 and it was very small (6-7 tables) they serve each course at the same time to everyone! The food was amazing! I love Japanese as is and I'm very into raw fish and seafood so this was right up my alley, we started off with some Japanese snow crab which was smoked, we had sea urchin, lobster, foie gras, Cornish hen, a5 grade wagyu and a bunch of other amazing courses. By the end I was honestly stuffed but the food was honestly sensational! I would recommend booking early as it fills up with the limited seating! Well done on a great restaurant.

Most dishes are expertly prepared and elegantly presented with an excellent wagyu beef that melts into a sweet cream in your mouth. The only dish that did not stand out is a cooked fish from the Tsujiki market. The wine list is small but the selection (mostly French) is very good and appropriate for the food. Service is very efficient and courteous but slightly on the cold side. Their menu seems to have evolved over the past 18 months as they now serve less sashimi than before.
