    Absolutely amazing experience from beginning to end. Julia and the rest of the team were so kind, the food was delicious, and the attention to detail on each presentation was incredible. This was my favorite dining experience in Tokyo. If you are visiting Tokyo this is a must!

    Today we had a dining experience at Julia in Tokyo that was and evermore will be memorable. It would have been a tragedy to experience Tokyo but left out the Julia dining food and experience. Sometimes superlatives are not enough to describe a dining experience and this was THE one. It will forever stick with me that chefs can create such delicacies from sumptuous hors doeurves to amusche to mains at such incredible palette titillating levels to leave you simply breathless at this heavenly state. Vegetarian or pescatarians no holds barred. Sure there are great restaurants serving great delicasies in NYC or SF but none in my estimation having sampled most can rival Julia in its sheer power of food experience and ambience and care that transports you to a state of ecstasy and joy in eating. I simply don’t think you can truly experience Tokyo unless a visit to Julia has elevated it. I was simply fortunate to have been through it this evening and treated with a few friends and the chefs in private surroundings to a most memorable event. To be treasured always. Julia is it. Unbelievable. Their chefs Nao and Ken are the most delightful with their clients. Best of luck to them in the bright future of Julia.

    This is a small, quiet, charming and unique restaurant space. The music was lovely and the service was outstanding. The food, as expected, is a work of art. The appetizer course was amazing! The wine pairing is an interesting collection of Japanese wines and my husband enjoyed the non alcoholic beverage pairing. The restaurant was difficult for us to find as it is on a small street/alley with very little signage so give yourself time to get there and enjoy!

    From start to finish this was an excellent journey through Japanese food and wine. The fish and meat courses were exquisitely cooked and presented. The staff were attentive but not intrusive location is hard to find up an alleyway. Not the cheapest place in town but certainly a great evening

    I’m a bit disappointed that in yelp. If you cancel your can do it on line. I booked this then 10 minutes I realized I want to go to another restaurant instead. I can’t cancel online, I called right away but there was no way to live message. I asked our concierge to do it for us as it’s in Japanese. She called me and told me that if I cancel, I will be charged full price which was not standard to any restaurant so we went anyway. Service was excellent. It’s a pre fix’s wine pairing. Wine was mediocre ( we are from Napa). The food was pretty but it’s disconnected in taste. The price is a shocking $500.00 for 2. There’s not much people there that’s probably why they held you hostage if you cancel. I was very disappointed for the price and quality.

    This place was amazing. Fantastic, original food that paid tribute to Japan's local ingredients. Julia and her team were very attentive and professional. My wife is gluten sensitive and we found this a challenge while travelling in Japan given the common use of soy. However, Julia accommodated my wife's meal expertly and beautifully.

    This family-owned restaurant uses a unique technique - the wife/chef creates dishes from scratch from domestic/Japanese wines that the husband picked up. He also creates non-alcoholic cocktails from the dishes she made.

    料理の流れ、内容はとても良いと思います。ワインとのペアリングは最近の日本ワインのみでの構成となっており、地域にこだわった食材との取り合わせを考えるととっても素晴らしい取り組みだと思います。北海道から九州まで日本のワインのレベルが上がってきましたので、是非今後はテロワールも含めての構成が出来るとより素晴らしい内容になると思います。新しいお店もスタートするとの事。より一層の魅力がこのお店には生まれる事でしょう。

    Dinner at Julia is a culinary experience not to be missed. To sit in such a beautiful and intimate setting, listening to an eclectic mix of soothing popular music while watching a masterful chef prepare an exquisite meal is a treat for all of your senses. We enjoyed multiple courses of delectable and aesthetically stunning food that was magnificently paired with an array of delicious wines. Our only struggle was trying to decide which dish was our favorite. We finally agreed on the only logical answer…This one, the last one and the next one! Dinner at Julia is a dining experience you will never forget.

    A real treat to sit at the 8 person counter and be served by this amazing pair. This was Michelin star quality seasonal local cuisine, and every wine pairing (Japanese wine only which was super interesting) was absolutely perfect. The small atmosphere means you make friends with your diners and English was spoken for non Japanese speakers. This is a very special place, and won’t be a secret for long. Just go here and enjoy.

    This is one of the better dinner experiences I’ve had in the world. It astounds me that they don’t have a Michelin star yet. It is truly a craft that the chef has mastered, and there is a tender touch on everything she put out. All of the alcohol pairing were amazing and well thought out. I couldn’t recommend this place higher

    A good experience overall. We ate at the counter whilst the chef cooked in front of you. Lovely people & great service. 12 course meal with wine pairings. The food was generally good with some flashes of brilliance. We had peas, a variety of different fish courses - the mackerel was the highlight, and one outstanding desert. The wine was really not very good, although the champagne and first 2 whites were good. A solid meal but pricey even by Sydney standards which is saying something.
