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!
Outstanding dining experience with excellent service.
Great food and service. Will go back next time when we are in the area
Phenomenal dinner! We enjoyed it from start to finish, and the service was outstanding - we will be back!
A unique dining experience. Highly recommended, but be prepared with a second mortgage on your home.
This pace is the real deal. If you haven't ever done kaiseki there, you can get the best here. Can't say enough. Very impressive on every level. Highly recommend. Be ready to spend, it's true, but you'll leave with a true experience !! Loved it.
We had an exquisite evening at Kenzo. From the moment we walked in to the restaurant, we knew we were in good hands. We chose the traditional kaiseki and the food was perfection. Highlights for us were the salmon and wagyu. Their daishi broth was outstanding as was all the sushi we were served. And the timing of the courses was well paced. The wine and sake pairings were delicious and chosen well for each course. The restaurant itself is relatively small, but there is a lot of space between tables so it felt very comfortable and serene. Our waiter Juan was excellent. We loved this memorable night!
We had an amazing experience at Kenzo. Chef Shuuhei took us on a culinary trip that we won’t forget. The service was impeccable and were very attentive. At times it felt like they could read our minds and anticipated what we wanted next.
Great fish. Great rice. Well assembled. Small sake list, but some good choices. Attentive and professional service. Minimalist decor. Kyoto style pressed sushi course, which was nice. Not cheap, but authentic and worth the money.
Was a superb experience! Thanks so much everyone at Kenzie for an amazing dinner!
World class Sushi and Japanese cuisine from Tokyo’s famed 3 Michelin star Chef Kanda. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The sushi was the best I have had outside of Tokyo. The wine and sake pairing were spot on.
We went the first week that it opened and it was then amazing. This time was even better. The whole team was on point and the food outstanding! Congrats Kenzo team!
Shu was our sushi chef for the night and he was just as wonderful as the food he served us. Such an incredible experience. Went for our anniversary and were seated at the bar. Loved every minute of it.
My favorite Japanese Restaurant in California
Fabulous food and great presentations. Very attentive staff.
Pricey but the food is worth it.
Only criticism is the wine list is very expensive - a $95 Gewürztraminer and a $75 corkage
Pros - The servers were incredible. They were very attentive and friendly. They made the evening worthwhile more than the food itself. They provided history, explanations, and even visuals for the food that was being presented. This made it even more special. The restaurant is very clean and fresh. The sushi was excellent
Cons - The price was way too high for what we had. The clams were not that great and they even served a dish with shredded potatoes which I believe were uncooked. We had two different broths of which the first was good but the second was too rich after eating so many courses. We had higher expectations based on the price and the Michelin star. And this isn't the first Michelin star restaurant we have visited either. Sadly, we felt we could have had the same if not better sushi at a sushi restaurant we regularly visit at least 6-7 times for what we paid. I'm sorry, we just didn't see the value vs the cost. Overall, it just wasn't that impressive to us.
Now with all that said, it could be that we are not of Japanese descent and perhaps they are spot on with traditional faire and could be appreciated more by someone of that culture.
Had the sushi kaiseki. Absolutely amazing.
Kenzo is like stepping into a lovely retreat. It is an escape from the chaos of the world where you can focus on exquisitely prepared food, flawless never intrusive service, and fine wine. I celebrated my Birthday there and had a wonderful time.
An absolutely incredible experience. A true Michelin star experience. The food was as amazing as the service. We felt like the whole dining experience was designed especially for us. Loved it!
Second time here for our 20th anniversary and everything about it was wonderful…
My husband and I were very satisfied with Kenzo restaurant’s high quality of food and service. We like their Omotenashi—Japanese hospitality and respect.
The most stellar service experience and most memorable meal I’ve ever had!
Amazing experience in every regard - from seervice to food and presentation- worth every penny!

Great wine- good service but strangely slow in the second half. Way overpriced. Food is not all that. Rather fly to Japan..
This restaurant may work in Tokyo or London, but not so much in Napa. Its atmosphere is library quiet while jazz, of all things, is played at low tones in the background. Sushi is excellent, but expensive and served sans soy and wasabi and generally unsauced as well. This is very Japanese, but plain and may leave many Americans unsatisfied. The sake list is expensive, albeit well thought out. For the Napa Valley, there is little genuine fun here as the place takes itself too seriously. Morimoto is far more enjoyable, but admittedly far less genuine. My ultimate comment would be that if I wanted this kind of experience, I would head for Tokyo, which I love. Here, this place falls short of the promise of its astronomical prices.
Food was authentic Japanese, the sushi chef was very experienced and pleasant to talk to. The sake, wine and seating were all exquisite!! Awesome Maitre’D! Fantastic experience!!
Excellent food and service. It is an amazing experience.
Unbelievable dining experience from top to bottom. We will definitely be back for special occasions. Price is high but well worth it due to quality of food, wine/sake & service. It felt like we each had our own personal butler to catered to all our needs. Great job to Kenzo Estates! Bravo!
They deal with foods with high quality.but,someting missing.
maybe chef is different.
Not same last time.last time is more wonderful.
I'm came birthday dinner but nothing special and didn't tell me happy birthday. other people is birthday too. They are get it. Chef is not care about me.
The chef was talking a lot with other people
Feel unhappy dinner.
and expensive payment. Maybe not comeback
This was by far the best and most authentic Japanese food experience I've ever had. The wine/sake pairings (reserve) was a great addition to the Kaiseki meal. I can't recommend this place enough. Once you step into the restaurant you could swear you were in Tokyo. The service is every bit as gracious and welcoming as the food.
This is magnificent dining, on par with the best in Japan. It is one of those experiences that reminds you life is worth living - at any price.
