Not worth the time or money. We eat here every year and love to come at Easter. We have enjoyed this place for a few years. So on Nov 8 2009 we were looking forward to going there again, but to our surpise the food was horrible. Not much to the Japanese influence, food was taseless. Maybe there is another Chef, don't know but we will not go back unless there are major changes. Our the sevice was awful. Took 20 minutes to get coffee and had to keep asking for coffe, if they we busy this could be understandable but they were not busy at all.
Overpriced Japanese food. Overpriced Japanese food. Could not find the lobster in the gnocchi. Pasta was tasteless. Hamachi crudo was overpriced for four pieces of hamachi on a bed of grapefruit. Pork Belly is way better at Santa ramen in san mateo. Miso Cod was good but everyone makes it so go elsewhere. My sone's Ribeye steak was good but how can you screw up a steak? The menu looks better than it tastes. It also took 45 minutes to get the main course after the appetizers (hostess offered a round of drinks but only provided the hard drinks and forgot about the other diner's soft drinks and juices .... so thoughtless).
Fantastic Place. I ate dinner here with my boyfriend before heading to a show at the Razz Room. What a great meal! Our waiter was very attentive (and funny!) and the food was great - and you have to try the sushi. Loved it and would recommend to anyone.
A Hidden Gem!.
Cuisine described as EuroJapanese...wonderful food and great service. Chef Barney Brown knows what he is doing!
The Black Cod is a signature dish, sushi was exquisite and an interesting dessert wine section. Will be back!
Editorial Review. The Hotel Nikko's flagship dining room showcases a Japanese-influenced continental menu, as well as a sushi bar with domestic and Tokyo-imported fish.
An unpleasant experience.
A very unpleasant experience because:
1. The restaurant would not honor the restaurant dot com coupon
2. The management was entirely unresponsive
3. Some of the food was inedible due to exceptionally high salt content
4. The waiter was arrogant and indefferent
We will certainly not return and would in no way recommend this restaurant.
This guest tried to use restaurant.com during lunch. The terms on the certificate and the website explicitly state the certificate is to be used for dinner only.
We feel cheated!. We had a very bad experience at this restaurant. I was given a gift certificate by my staff for Sunday Brunch for 4. The hotel's salesperson faxed over the certificate because my birthday party was that night and the staff wanted something to give me. . I made reservations and gave the number of the certificate to the reservation clerk. Well needless to say- we had a rude awakening when they refused to take the faxed copy of the certificate. The manager and the Director of the restaurant are equally unresponsive as yet. I don't recommend such a place.
We worked with the guest to resolve the issue but she presented a photocopy of a gift certificate from over two years ago. Hotel policy precludes us from accepting anything other than the actual gift certificate in the event of fraud. We are happy to honor the actual gift certificate once presented.
Average. I've been to Anzu a few times now. The food presentation varies from average to above average each time. Wish it would always be the same. Menu is limited. The Rock is cool, table side cooking. Price was good for quality of food. Staff was very sweet and helpfull. Nice place to go in downtown area. Ask for a seat by the window for cool downtown view.
Anzu is a poor choice for holiday dinners.
Christmas dinner was terrible, terrible, terrible!
What a huge disappointment and embarrassment to have taken an out-of-town guest there for dinner. To begin with, I never would have thought food would languish in a hallway. The hot entrees were of poor quality and barely warm to the touch. Some of the dishes looked as if prepared for a previous banquet (e.g, venison, mashed cauliflower, and something questionable). Furthermore, the presentation was of poor taste; the buffet looked as if it was ran-sacked by a bunch of drunk frat boys on a cruise ship.
And imagine having to cough up $55 per person! Stay away from this place.
I?ve checked Anzu?s website menu and was totally fooled by it. The presentation of the menu items was truly an example of ?it looked better on paper.? I think I?ve eaten better meals served by arthritic cafeteria women in hair nets.
Great Food.. Anzu is a great place to dine. Even though the it was a kind of pricey the quality of the food made it worth it. I really recommend this place to those picky eaters that are looking for great food quality.
