    If you can get a table as soon as the restaurant opens I would highly suggest it. The selection of food was amazing. Sad to say that I didn't get to try everything but we made sure our plates were empty and ready for the second round. The staff were so friendly and very hospitable. Awesome view as you approach the main lobby and walk to the restaurant. Nice to hear live hawaiian music from the main lobby as you walk to the restaurant as well. We will book another dining experience at Hakone again. Mahalo!

  • The service was great but
    Dined on 1/19/2013
    The service was great but the quality of the food was not and the presentation was even worse. In my opinion, a sashimi plate should be a centerpiece to a Japanese restaurant, but it seemed like it was just a chore that the chef did not want, and the lack of effort showed in the lack of any style in the presentation. Shocking considering this is one of the highest priced restaurants, I really expected more.

    Japanese buffet not terrific and pricey. More cafeteria style than buffet. Restaurant dark and gloomy. Just reopened but they need to upgrade food and presentation.
