A+ amazing! I didn’t know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised. I went with friends and everyone loved BBQing our meats on the grill that was built into the middle of the table. A unique and great experience! Delicious meats!

This restaurant really brought that ambiance from when I first tried this type of meat when I was in Japan. The quality is definitely up there, and while the price will scare some people off, however, the taste is unlike anything you have had before.

If you like Kobe wagyu and have means to afford it, Yazawa is the place to enjoy such a delicacy.
I have been 4times in Singapore and once in LA, as always excellent.
Bring your red wine with you , it will be served with a charge but like this it feels cheaper to order the good stuff from Japon

We had an amazing experience. It was a perfect place to enjoy nothing but delicious red meat. My husband is a steak fan and he said it is by far the best so far! I definitely will recommend this place. Our server was very knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable.

Last, I can’t forget the heated toilet seats! Just had to add that. 🙌🏼

I was shocked that glass of house cabernet (jordan) cost $35 which is almost wholesale for 1 bottle. Pretty outrageous. Recommend bringing ur own wine at $35/ corkage to complement the good meat

We have dined here twice and both experiences have been great. Meats are pricey, but every bite and the experience is worth it. Yazawa uses real wagyu and not "wagyu-style." Meat is marbled beautifully and cooked with precision by your server.

Delicious and pricey. Amazing beef. What they don't tell you is that if you haven't been before, you really need to do the omakase menu -- it starts at $100 and doesn't include any vegetables or other dishes-- those have to be ordered a la carte. Other than that, and the confirmation call telling us that we had to release the table in 2 hours (a bit off-putting), the food was really outstanding and the service was good as well. You better like meat, though!

The beef is all good and juicy and tasty even the US ones. The seasoning inside is just PERFECT.
This is the BEST Japanese Waygu BBQ we tried on earth. If the price is not that expensive, I want to come here once a week. :)

Best dining experience I’ve ever had. You come for the food and also the experience. This was my first time trying wagyu and it was so amazing. Definitely recommend the omakase for $100 per person. It’s basically super fancy Japanese BBQ, but with really good quality meat.

I’ve never felt strongly in either direction to leave a review before but I thought I would leave a feedback in case it could be another perspective for someone considering the restaurant to dine in. First of all I didn’t feel well after dining that I couldn’t sleep that night with an upset stomach and cold sweat running down my spine so that definitely swayed the experience as a negative one. The Japanese imported meats that were supposed to be the highest quality meat didn’t feel that way to me and I have had far better experience with the quality of meat in other places.

I think the restaurant experience at yazawa can be a divided one. I can see how it caters to people who like pursuing the pleasure from eating meat that is said be be of a high quality.

I would definitely give it a thought before making a reservation and really determine if you will be okay paying much more for much less quantity with undeterminable quality difference. I know I wish I did, but then again this is a personal experience so I would be glad if this experience is for you and have a great time here.

If you want to get robbed then come here for dinner. Ordered the Omakase for $160 and just got a few slices of meat. I could t believe the omakase did not even include a salad rice or soup. Unbelievably bad experience.

I expected a lot more from good reviews on Yelp. We ordered the $160 course meal, but the beef was just okay. I was actually disappointed with the trio appetizer and the first beef in the course menu was really tough. We also ordered garlic wagyu rice and Toro sushi, but these were just okay too. I feel like I had better overall experience in Yazawa in Tokyo, Japan...

Got the $160 course meal. All cuts of beef were just amazing. I had some great beef before, and this place certainly serves TOP quality beef. Service was very nice as well. Two downsides are that for $160, I was not really completely full, and the course meal really included just beef. If you want any vegetables (even some pickles) or rice, you have to order them separately. I think they should at least give some pickles for the amount of money I paid.

Spectacular meal. Went with a large group of friends. Beef was absolutely out of this world. We had one vegetarian and they made an vegetarian omakase for him. It was $50 and was bascially an endless stream of courses that came out with the meal dishes. There isn't a defined vegetarian menu so they just winged it for us.

Impeccable service, and the best beef in the world.
