    Kaiseki food as art form. Nine course menu takes you through the different ways to prepare high quality ingredients. All presented with a great sense of detail and artistry. A diiferent culinary experience, not comparable to western offerings. The sake pairing is a wonderful way to learn about this accompaniment.

    Every single dish was just amazing. EVERY 9 COURSES. Appetizer to dessert. Beutifully prepared dishes goes amazingly well with sake as well. Highly recommend the sake pairing if you're a sake beginner. The server will nicely explain what you're having every time. Wonderful place to go out for a once in a while special dinner or to experience the whole new level of Japanese food in NYC. You will enjoy the real Japanese cuisine here.

    Attentive but unobtrusive service in a relaxed atmosphere. Unexpected yet delectable combination of ingredients and flavors in each course, accompanied by perfect sake pairings. The rice dish with sea urchin was our favorite but the entire menu and experience was wonderful.

    The restrant offers an authentic Kaiseki course using many ingredients that are not simply available at grocery stores. Each dish is beautifully presented, with the sense of the season. The portion is very small, but I felt more than being full after the 9 dishes. This place is very good for a small business dinner as well as for a romantic occasion. As other reviers wrote, this place can be the quietest restaurant in NYC.

    I was looking for a place to take my wife out for her birthday and came across this place based on other reviews. I'm glad I decided to try this place out as we had a truly memorable dining experience. The food is great and the presentation even better! The service is awesome and Japanese hospitality truly puts other fancy restaurants to shame. It's a very small place seating less than 25 people, but makes for a nice, quiet and romantic ambience - perfect for conversations! Highly recommend the 9 course menu!

    Rosanjin is aiming to be a super high end kaiseki restaurant and the atmosphere, the presentation and the service are all lovely but the food falls far short of the mark. It is surely a romantic and "fancy" spot but I value food above all so I will not be back.

    This is our 2nd time here. The food, as per the last time, was superb - fresh and delicious. The rice dish might look simple but with the pickles, it's fantastic - very homely kind of food that warms your heart. Service is top-notch. Only thing is that the service ladies, sometimes they don't articulate the ingredients of the dish very well as they introduce the dish to you, and to make it worse, they speak really fast so it's even tougher to catch what they're saying. But this is not something I would mark down the restaurant for as the food, ambience and service are all excellent. Would return here for another special occasion since it's so expensive!

    Rosanjin is a wonderful, serene option for dinner with fine food, beautifully presented, and a lovely, quiet dining environment. The service is friendly and helpful. The only slightly off note is the porion size, which is small given the cost. Perhaps this is not an issue with the more expensive options with more courses than the basic 7 or 8 course option, which felt a bit skimpy.

    I went to Rosanjin and ordered the highest end menu for my wife's birthday. Of the nine courses, they started out well enough, and there were a few great dishes such as the fish entree they served that night, but most of it wasn't very flavorful. Everything was plated so beautiful, and it was easy to appreciate the freshness of every ingredient, but most dishes were bland. I've had quite a bit of Japanese food - both high-end and low-end - and this was one of the more disappointing spots I've been to, especially for the hefty cost.

Rosanjin is really a gem, there is quality in everything and I would recommend this restaurant to every lover of Japanese cuisine. We will certainly return to enjoy the next season's delicacies.

    The food was amazing. We had the 9-course meal and each dish builds up suitably for the next. It was fortunate that we came hungry because the little dishes proved filling in the end. Each dish is well put together flavour- and presentation-wise. I had to take a photo of each because they look beautiful. The service was very warm yet unintrusive. The owner personally came up to us at the end of our dinner to ask about our experience and thank us for the visit. I asked for an electronic copy of the dinner and sake pairing and it was e-mailed promptly.

    -Premium Japanese food experience. All products are very fresh and tasty. Chef is exceptional. -Best way to discover Japanese cuisine (forget about the sushis). -Small cozy restaurant with only a few tables (fitting at most 20-30 clients). Quiet and dark (perfect for romantic dinners). -High-quality authentic service. Waitresses are caring and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine/sake list. -Great place to taste different kinds of sake. -Well-worth the one Michelin star.
