Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Almost cancelled our reservation at La Cime after reading the most recent review, which was extraordinarily negative. Sure glad we didn’t! This was a marvelous dining experience. While not everyone necessarily would consider each dish to be a home run, the overall quality, inventiveness and mix of flavors and textures was undeniable. We hail from San Francisco and Napa (where good food & wine are expected), have eaten at Michelin starred restaurants all over the world, and have a daughter who is a chef, so we know a thing or two about good food. La Cime was excellent across the board. I need to give an extra shout out to the wine pairings. I often put myself in the hands of the chef & sommelier when it comes to wine for multi-course meals, and am all too often disappointed, especially when a pricey restaurant charges around $100 for a bunch of drinkable but unremarkable supermarket quality wines. La Cime had the best wine pairings I’ve ever experienced in terms of quality and value —- hands down. Wonderful wines from Sancerre, Meursault, Chambolle- Musigny and Chateauneuf de Pape, to name a few. Makes me wonder if the previous reviewer and I went to the same place.

Their blackened hot dog with edible bamboo charcoal is really a work of art. I enjoyed my dinner here and the service was top-notch.

I am truly sad to be writing this review because I had large expectations for this restaurant. Unfortunately I left 90 minutes into the meal because of how lack luster everything was. Flavors were poorly balanced. The ingredients used in every dish did not go well together. The cooking techniques were amateur. The wine and sake pairing included certain things that were barely drinkable and made no sense. Definitely does not deserve any michelin star and for sure does not deserve to be in the top 50 in the world. The only assumption I can make is that covid hit them hard and everything dropped off a cliff. I came here just a few days after tourist entry restrictions were lifted. Either way this shouldn’t be an excuse for such a huge failure by the restaurant.

The service is absolutely terrible. We had a mistake happen with the booking system, so they booked is on a day that we were not even in Japan, and they would not accept a rebooking, they just took our money before even coming to the restaurant. I have never in my life experience a restaurant with so poor service, let alone a Michelin star restaurant with so poor service. It has been an absolutely terrible experience, and I would NOT recommend anyone to book there, ever!!

This restaurant is now included in World’s 100 best restaurant. It is probably the best French restaurant in Osaka. It has a simple but elegant décor. Tables are set at some distance apart. Service was courteous. Food was French style with local ingredience. We had a dozen dishes of scallops, fish, soup, vegi and dessert. Every dish was well prepared and many were excellent. Our favourite was beef tendon soup, piglet and pear mosse. I recommend this restaurant for its excellent French food.

Went here for lunch. A chefs menu. Priced well for a Michelin 2 star. They were mindful of my daughter not liking peas, so altered one of her courses to avoid it. Food, as one would expect was delicious. A lot, for a lunch. Service impeccable. On point, yet friendly. The chef had taken pains to source his produce well. French food, but clearly with a hint of the east (not just Japanese). We went with the recommended wine pairing. But I peeked at the wine list. Quite impressive.

My wife and I visited this place over a year ago. Been a little lazy to write about this amazing restaurant until now. Anyway, the food and the service were impeccable. The waitresses were very attentive to the customers. My wife was happy that we managed to take a photo with the Chef. We have been and will continue to recommend this restaurant to our friends and families. 😁

This is a very small restaurant and requires payment in advance, but it’s a great experience for foodies. If you don’t like fish you probably should choose somewhere else to go. Indeed, if you don’t like fish, eating out in Japan could be a bit of a challenge for you period. La Cime offers two tasting menus at lunch. We chose nine courses rather than 12 and we left very satisfied. Don’t miss the ‘Bourdin Dog’, the chef’s signature amuse bouche. It’s one of the few occasions that meat takes centre stage here. This is a peaceful and relaxing experience with excellent service. We’d been told that service in English wasn’t guaranteed but each of our wait staff had a smattering - enough to give us the information we needed about what we were eating (there’s no menu, but you get a list of dishes at the end of your meal).

We had dinner in the highly rated La Cime on a Monday night. After being usehered into an elegant yet intimate room (only 20 covers) we were taken care of with attentiveness and respect from start to finish. The food, as you would imagine from a 2* Michelin restaurant, was of the highest quality. The blend of French techniques with Japanese ingredients delivered results beyond our expectations. Highlights included the first amuse bouche called ‘Boudindog’, a playful beignet of blood sausage served on black rocks and a black plate also the best grouper I have ever eaten. Deserts and treats too rounded off a high quality affair. This is fine dining at its finest in terms of food but the staff don’t make it feel at all stuffy. Not a cheap experience by any measure but, in my opinion, money well spent compared to similarly priced restaurants. With our a doubt the highest quality 2* restaurant I have been lucky enough to dine in. Susi, Max & Ian

La Cime is a must-go fine dining restaurant in Osaka! Online reservations are very convenient, especially for overseas customers. Service is exceptional. The restaurant only provides one lunch set at JPY 8,500/head + tax. One can also opt for wine pairing at JPY 6,500/head + tax. The minimalist decor ensures diners focus on the chef’s unique creations. Dishes are not only artistic and delectable, but also full of surprises.

Would say that it is comparable to other two Michelin stars establishments elsewhere. Online reservation was fuss-free, and they were responsive over email and communicated fine in written English. There are only a few tables in the restaurant, so it is recommended to make reservations at least a few weeks in advance. Service was good, although they took really long (more than 25 minutes) to serve my 2nd / 3rd amuse bouche, most likely in order to sync the preparation of dishes with another table of 3, since I was a solo diner. Enjoyed almost everything on the menu - boudindog, squid/yam appetizer, artichoke, potato gnocchi/trout, yellowtail with yuzu, sea eel, flounder, chicken from Kagoshima, desserts: kumquat and souffle, rounding off with tea and petite 3s. Especially liked the squid appetizer and potato gnocchi trout. Some of the dishes were innovative and interesting, a fusion of Japanese and French cuisine. Particularly unimpressed with the meat dish - chicken from Kagoshima with some vegetables on the side. Take note that the whole lunch would last for around 2 hours.

It's Michelin two star and it lives up to our expectation. Firstly, the food was delicate and creates a visual surprise. Secondly, food matches really well with the wine pairing from various regions and years, including amongst many, a 1995 wine from Burgundy and sake. Pacing of food arrival is excellent. Personal attention and service also top notch - with detailed explanation of the wine and the food. From the type of cuisine, I see it as French cuisine with strong Japanese influence (and nature inspired) and on the light side. We greeted the chef at the end and hope to be back again!
