The kaiseki dishes and the service are both excellent. The ambience is pleasant and simple. As this is kaiseki I would have enjoyed more of a private feeling, but overall highly recommended.

A gem in Redwood City! We dined at Ranzan for an early lunch. We felt like celebrity rock stars! Besides having the restaurant nearly all to ourselves, the service was extremely attentive and the food was beautiful and specially prepared. A perfect spot for the birthday lunch we celebrated. I will be back again!

What an extraordinary experience dining can be! Having been to Japan over 100 times in the past 12 years, I can tell you that this Japanese restaurant is among the best I've ever visited. Incredibly attentive and kind service, and every dish was like a work of art as well as delicious.

Everything is good but the food. Food is very ordinary and did not worth the price in hundreds. Just edible

Amazing! Pricey for sure, but worth it for the experience. Every dish delighted and very attentive service. I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday in the reservation and they noted this on his menu when we arrived and even sang happy birthday. We will definitely look to Ranzan for special occasions and the need for a special night.
