Kenzo is a beautiful serene space. The service was impeccable and the food was interesting and so flavorful.
Great service, sophisticated food, very clean and ambiance is perfect. Just sit back, savor the flavors of the food and enjoy every minute of it. It’s definitely an indulgence that is worth every penny.
Wonderful experience we were first to experience the new menu. The staff is so nice and it is watch food art. You feel like you are dining in intoned chef japan.
Beautiful place with food, service and environment.
Amazing- as always. Highly recommend.
Kenzo Napa provides stunningly creative Japanese cuisine truly deserving of their Michelin one-star award. Impeccable service delivers this wonderful food in a timely, peacefully paced manner. Of special note is that Kenzo produces their own wines at Kenzo Estate--tailored specifically to their cuisine. The paired tasting complements the food far better than any bottle choice for the evening.
Absolutely amazing food and impeccable service
Terrific!!! We celebrated 3 birthdays. One of my best meals of the year.
Great service amazing food.
no interaction between chef and diners. Wine stewart was very pushy to sell wine and did not appreciate it.
Menu was a lot less unique than a year ago. Thought I return to a very nice unique experience like the last time only to find a decline in uniqueness and creativity and overall service. Sorry to see a decline so rapidly. I would say that the food is now mostly run of the mill in type but very good quality.
The experience can be duplicated many establishments in SF Bay however for Napa it may be unique.
Chefs and wait staffwerevery knowledgeable and personable. Food was all Japanese ingredients and tasted fresh and high quality. We have been to Japan and the flavor we tasted at kenzo was only matched by that of Japan.
Amazing meal. Completely deserving of a Michelin star. Had the kaiseki with wine pairing. Exceptional. Service and staff are above and beyond what was expected. Had issues with flight times and the restaurant was accommodating. Really special experience.
Amazing food and service! Definitely on the pricer side.
Not worth its money. We went to another restaurant after spending 700 dollars, because we were hungry.
Simply amazing traditional Japanese experience. I went to The French Laundry, Meadowood and Kenzo on the same weekend and Kenzo stood out in its simplicity and taste!
Absolutely great place.
Everything was great! Thank you for making the dining experience so memorable. Highly recommended!
This is an amazing eatery for very authentic chef's menu ( kaiseki ). The menu is designed with meticulous attention to seasonal ingredients for a multi-course Japanese hatue cuisine dinner. All courses were beautifully plated, delicately prepared and exquisitely served. A must-try culinary experience!!!
Truly authentic Japanese. If that’s what you are looking for you will NOT disappoint but will be very satisfied. I must say it was a high end level even in Tokyo
Very minimalist , food was beautifully prepared and most courses were delicious. However seemed overpriced for what you received.
The food and service are amazing. The chef and staff are nice and kind. I told them that I don't drink tea at night and they changed it to decaf version.
This is our second time here. The food is just as excellent as the first time. The menu changes every couple of months. This is authentic Japanese Kaiseki(formal dining) course prepared by chefs from Japan. The dishes come out one at a time, each prepared meticulously with care and artistry. Simply, the food tastes great. Majority of the main ingredients come from Japan. If you have any questions, the chef will explain to you how the dish is prepared. The service is excellent. We definitely will dine here again.
Amazing fresh ingredients,
Delicious champagne, delicious original menu! Nothing I have experienced before.
Amazing experience. I paired with wine/sake and it was great! Pricey but worth it. Highly recommend
One word... FANTASTIC!
The meal was exquisite as was the wine. It was VERY pricey but worth
Birthday party! Very nice
Having read glowing reviews we tried Kenzo. The staff and service were on point. The tasting menu was satisfying and several courses were remarkable. Overall, I felt the tasting menu was a bit monochromatic, which, in their defense may be unavoidable when sashimi type courses are involved. I enjoyed our evening but would probably not return. Thirty dollar charge for 2 additional pieces of sushi. Very expensive. These prices are not my norm, so my standard may be hard to meet for me to justify the 600.00 bill for two.
Wonderful experience. So different than what you’ll ordinarily find in Napa dining. Service was impeccable.
wow. what an experience, Kenji the chef is wonderful
One of the best dining experiences of my life! Service was excellent; attentive, but not irritating. The chef was clearly very proud and it showed in the food. Will definitely be traveling from the East Coast to eat here again! The highlight of our trip!
Excellent experiences with great food and service! It’s not a cheap restaurant but has the best Japanese food in Napa
A very tradition Japanese experience. Highly recommended
Great food and a fantastic experience. The chefs and staff are wonderful and very happy to guide you through all of the options. Best customer service experience I’ve had in Napa. Great option for special occasions.
Super nice. Felt like we were in Japan at a fancy restaurant. Great foods and service. Loved it.
Truly the BEST Japanese dinner we've ever enjoyed! We travel the world and have eaten all over Japan so that's saying something!! Adore Chef Keni Miyaishi, absolutely charming culinary genius! From Management and Sommelier to the attentive wait staff, service and shared knowledge of traditional and innovative Japanese dining experience was impeccable! Delicious, elegant feast for the eyes and palate. Thank you very much Kenzo.
Impeccable service, great authentic Japanese cuisine, wonderful Kenzo estate wines... well deserved Michelin Star ⭐️
The best meal I’ve ever had was at Kenzo. My husband and I had the Kaiseki menu which featured everything from somen noodles and sea bass to sushi and wagyu beef. The desserts were phenomenal, and the service was lovely. The ambiance of the restaurant makes you forget you’re in Downtown Napa; it feels more like a zen retreat. This place deserves more Michelin stars!
