Japanese restaurants are all over the city, but there are only a few that I would rate as truly Japanese in their quality, originality, presentation, and diversity of dishes. Ebisu is just such a gem.
From their diversity of authentic Japanese dishes, to the impeccable service, to the creativity and the skill of the chefs (the knife work is amazing), Ebisu is a high high quality restaurant, but at very reasonable prices. The freshness of the ingredients and the taste is enough reason alone to go back again and again, but their attention to detail makes every meal memorable.
An especially good value is their $15 sunset menu, betweeen 5 and 7pm weekdays. You will not be disappointed.
