First off, yes it was expensive. Was it worth it, yes. Although not every bite was something I would try again, I absolutely would try the tasting menu again. The staff was impeccable, both the front and back of the house. The food was fresh and expertly prepared, delivered, and explained. It is an experience and as long as you appreciate it for what it is, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I had dinner at brushstroke on Christmas eve. we had the 9 course, and the 5 course omakase. The 9 courses had a few very tasty dishes. I especially loved the "seasonal kobachi from sea", everything from oysters, sweet shrimp and shrimp liver were amazing. I can still remember the sweet after taste. The "toro uni ikura sushi in masu box" was also excellent. I find the wagyu too fatty, not my favorite. The 5 courses' food were just average, the only memorable dish was the soba, the soup was rich in taste and comforting.

The omakases are quite big in portion, we could barely finish everything. Overall, I would go back and order a la carte.

Our meal at Bruststroke was exceptional. We had the delicious Kaiseiki Lunch 5 course menu. They also have a Vegetarian Kaiseiki menu. Definitely a must go restaurant.

brushstroke is our go-to restaurant for a special evening out, and it never disappoints in any way. Every dish in the 9-course kaiseki menu s a delightful surprise, especially the seasonal “kobachi” of seafood, so good we didn't want to give up our plates. Wine and sake pairings were spot on for every course, service was polite and efficient. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

We were big fans of Brushstroke and haven’t been in a few years - and were keen to try again. A big disappointment. We immeadiately noticed that the service had slipped after being seated - then the food presentation, which was fantastic, is just okay. And finally, the food is nowhere near the quality as it used to be. Needless to say we won’t be returing.

A beautiful and thoughtfully laid out space where every detail is presented beautifully. The service was spot-on as you would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. That said, the real star of the evening was the food. Not unfamiliar with Japanese cuisine, I have been to many equally as fussy establishments to find some serious Japanese faux pas. A beautiful balance of tradition and creativity. The only negative was the very noisy group sitting near us but I would not blame the restaurant for this. I look forward to going back soon. Thank you Brushstroke

The seasonal tasting menu was phenomenal, and the pairing was delicious. Even so, I could not justify the bill at the end. For such an expensive experience, I
