Great food and enjoyed the service. Our waiter is half Japanese and helped choose our food while explaining some neat cultural info. No regrets at all.
Excellent food. Everything but the tuna poke was fantastic. Their prices were definitely high, but not obscenely so. My biggest negative was the waiter, who was very well informed about the menu and not at all malicious, but still came off a little too controlling and pedantic. Certainly, I'd go again, but I'd prefer to avoid being so micromanaged at a restaurant.
Favorite dishes: pork and Brussel sprouts, grilled avocado, grilled octopus, smashed (?) potatoes
Service is generally good, but courses came out a bit randomly, not well timed. Food is always yummy.
Awesome space, creative food, attentive service.
This was pretty disappointing for the reviews and ratings I saw when I booked. I love japanese food and sake and tapas but this was overpriced and I was served many dishes that seemed haphazardly put together, and poorly thought out. I will not be back
Our experience at Daikaya Izakaya was uneven. We were there for my birthday and though the reservation indicated the special occasion and was confirmed via phone message, there was no acknowledgement at the restaurant itself (much less a drink or dessert). Our waitress was aloof and at times rude, failing to answer questions about the menu and seemingly uninterested in the quality of our experience. Out of the seven menu items we tried, four were excellent (CHAWANMUSHI, HUMBA, Edamame and STUFFED SHISHITO PEPPERS), two were just okay (Mackerel and Cod Roe Spaghetti), and one was inedible (Beef tongue skewers). Generally, the food was underseasoned and the portions were small, even for a small plates restaurant. The ramen, downstairs, is exceptional, so it was disappointing to have a mediocre experience at Daikaya Izakaya.
My girlfriend and I love Izakaya. We have gone more times than we can count now and have items that we fantasize about for weeks before and after each occasion. I always appreciate when Jeremiah is our waiter as well because his knowledge of wine always impresses and improves our experience. The digestif he recommended this time was also superb and it was a perfect finish to our delicious meal.
Food was outstanding. Service was excellent and knowledgeable. I loved every part of our experience!
Very interesting and delicious food with a very knowledgeable waiter as well!
I've always had good food here, and this time definitely didn't disappoint!
