I have to agree with the minority here. The food was great, the portions were small and delicate but the taste was flawless. However there were several factors that more or less ruined the night for us.
The service was generally very snobbish. Our reservation was at 6pm, quite early and there were probably 4 or 5 other tables occupied. However, when the waiter handed us the paper menu, roughly a quarter of the items were crossed out by hand. Common items such as eel simply were not available that night. Which, for such a pricy place, was rather surprising.
When we finally decided on 8 items (minium for the first round), we ordered 2 orders of tuna (so 4 pieces instead of 2). When our food came out the waiter said to us "I understand you put down 2 orders of tuna, but the chef says you can only have 1." Well I'll be thinking about this one for a long time. How a sushi restaurant runs low on tuna at 6pm is not going to be an easy one to understand. Not to mention that we don't get to decide what we eat these days, the chef does, apparently. In addition, the wasabi we had was not the usual consistency, it was very runny and 'watered down', like green tea smoothie almost. After 15 courses the two of us were nowhere near full, considering 15 courses meant basically 15 pieces of sushi for each of us.
The waiters did tell us how to eat, although we didn't mind that too much. What we couldn't get over was how we weren't allowed to order what we wanted off a menu that was only 3/4 available. I expected much more out of such a place.
