Fantastic quality, beautifully presented modern Japanese food. Came here early evening on a Saturday and due to them being quiet, it was lacking a little in atmosphere. The food and service did make up for this though and whilst it was a little more on the expensive side, it was good value for money and in line with what you would expect to pay for this type of restaurant.
I love Japanese food, but having tried so much of it, I'm very picky about the quality and taste. Ebisu makes absolutely fantastic Japanese food. The atmosphere could have been a little more comfortable, but it's a classy joint nonetheless.
I considered renting a flat downtown just so I could be closer to this restaurant. But then I reconsidered as I'd probably go into debt quite quickly. Not from renting a downtown flat, but from spending all of my pennys at Ebisu. Well done on every front team. Keep up the incredibly high standard of food, service and overall eating experience.
I came across this restaurant after a Breakers game as it was the only eatery open nearby at the time. They have a great menu with a range of exotic Japanese dishes to select from. The setup is very nice which makes you feel like you've gone to San Francisco for the evening. The dining experience is highly commendable.
