Great food and staff. I love food and quietly take photos of plates to aid my memory and to extend the enjoyment of the meal and wine by revising the photos. I was politely asked not to take photos and complied. Imagine my disappointment when...More

I have visited here repeatedly for over 5 years. 5 years ago, Quintessence was the "restaurant of perfection". There was nothing negative on the plate...traditional yet creative, artistic and beautiful. The famous goat cheese bavarois with olive oil and sea salts is relaxing stomach to...More

We went there for my partner's birthday dinner. The food was good enough, though not what I expected from all the fuzz, michelin stars and 5 month wait. There was one particular insolent staff/sommelier that was amazingly rude while we were there, we didn't even...More

Unfortunately couldn't take any pictures in the restaurant. The chef was trained under Pascal Barbot at L'Astrance in Paris, and the same sensibilities show which is great respect for the ingredients and achieving its peak flavor without much embellishment. The restaurant seems like a temple...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
