Had a terrific meal once again this year. This will become one of our must-eats when visiting Clearwater. The food and service are incredible. Reasonably priced for the quality and experience.

We had a wonderful experience. The food is outstanding and our server was amazing. It’s a beautiful restaurant and you watch the kitchen working. I highly recommend them. On our trip to Clearwater FL this was our favorite restaurant. 10+ stars for them.

Incredible food. Great service. Beautiful room. Highly recommended. It’s pricey but you get what you pay for. After eating beach bar food all week it was great to get a top notch meal. Stayed at the bar following dinner and had a great time meeting fellow travelers.

This place really isn’t worth the hype. It’s a beautiful restaurant with friendly staff and that’s about it. Our crab Rangoon were overlooked and did not taste of crab, at all. I’ve had better at a Chinese restaurant. The miso soup, too salty and not even hot. It was lukewarm and had all these extra things in it like they were trying to make it better but it made it worse. They put baby corn in it...gross. The only good thing we had was our entrees, my husband had the tuna sashimi and nigiri sushi. I had the volcano roll and both sushi entrees were excellent. They also have us a “Happy Anniversary” dessert which was nice of them. I heard the ramen was good, but we won’t bother coming back, not worth the money.

The Kaiseki is not that. It’s just a chefs tasting of items off the menu. Salad is not part of a Japanese meal btw. The chef did not come to our table until we asked; he was very nice but admittedly “self-trained” and in the crummy seat they gave us for our special occasion dinner, we could see him expediting, not cooking. Overall a big disappointment, and expensive.
Go to Sekushi instead.

Our waiter was terrible. We didn’t get our drinks for over a half hour and when food was brought to the table no one came to check on us or ask us if the food was ok. After hearing the hype of this place and the cost I definitely hope they change their service. Complete let down for our last night in Clearwater.

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. Fresh seafood, I recommend the calamari for an appetizer. The views are gorgeous and great service. For dessert we had the summer peach, which was like a deconstructed peach streusel. Ummmm yes! We will be back to try their chefs table. Highly recommend!

The atmosphere was great but the food was garbage. Wife got the chicken and it was dry and season-less, had no flavor at all. Her dish also came with noodles which tasted like over cooked ramen noodles. I had the grouper. The grouper was over cooked and dry as well, with rice and the rice was cooker ok but again, no flavor. Drinks were watery.

The only thing good about this restaurant was its location. Overlooking the beach and a great sunset view. If all you want is a view, check them out but I would avoid the food. Not good at all.

We ordered the six course Kaiseki. Nothing about that meal was Kaiseki, which originates from Japan and has an artistic, seasonal and philosophical grounding. It was a prix fixe meal of “Asian fusion” which was poorly executed even for that label. First course of salmon nigiri was good. But the burnt tofu and baby corn out of a can in the miso soup was sad. Even worse was having an “Asian Cesar salad” with ramen type crumbled noodles or wontons as described by our server—for 3rd third course. Nothing about the meal felt like it was locally sourced or related to what was seasonal or even crafted as a cohesive meal. It was fine average food if you’re looking for an Applebee’s type meal of multiple courses. Our server said that people that order Kaiseki get different things at different tables and the chef mixes it up as he goes. Which would be fine if it was really inspired and beautifully done, but it was definitely not. It felt like a random mishmash that wasn’t even very tasty. There was a good Gojucqhong sauce on the grouper fourth course but this insipid pilaf was awkward. And then a pork dish with some kind of sweet potato and carrots; the pork was dry. The dessert was a weird saffron gingerbread chocolate type thing. Then have frozen mochi ice cream’s. Which I like the mochi ice cream but that’s straight out of a box.I should’ve known $75 could not be the right price point for a quality 6 course meal. Things weren’t terrible but they weren’t particularly tasty either. It just became comical. I told the server please don’t call this Kaiseki because it ruins it for anybody who’s unfamiliar with it and they would never do it again or it would disrespect the Buddhist underpinnings and something that centuries old

Food was not great/good at all. Got one of their most popular dishes(grouper) and it was just okay. Most things under-seasoned or just okay…. For the price not great at all. Probably worth it to venture Away from beachfront or hotel dining

The food was a disaster. The oysters were frozen. Four different plates were ordered and all 4 lacked taste. Even, my glass of Shiraz taste had a sour taste.
Ps : they didn’t charge us for the oysters.

My husband and I came here for dinner while on vacation and had a wonderful experience. The restaurant is modern and trendy. It’s perfect for a date night, but I wouldn’t bring kids. The cocktails are delicious, and the food is fabulous. We started off with edamame and the meatballs, which were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. We ordered the seafood pad Thai and the chicken. I would highly recommend ordering seafood here because it’s so fresh and you can’t go wrong with grouper. I loved all of the complex flavors and use of seasonal vegetables.
