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.

This is a pub that serves food. There is a cover charge of 400y per person as it’s quite the industry practice for a pub. The grilled food was excellent. The tempura was excellent. We ordered quite a few dishes from the chicken thigh, chicken...breast, shiitake mushroom, oysters, pork belly, beef wrap, pork wrap etc. The grilled nodoguro fish was on the expensive side about 3300y for a tiny portion. The portion could have been bigger for the price. For recommendations, just order food that is on the main menu versus the chef or restaurant recommendations. The markup on these items are much higher. I will go back again and have more grilled food and tempura. The standard items are reasonably priced n taste great. Not sure about the environment, I guess if you want something romantic, this is definitely not the place. If you want to be able to talk to the chef or staff, you need to be able to converse. Not sure what do customers expect in such restaurants. We spend about 1hr and we off.More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Fuwari - one of our favorite meals in Kanazawa. The food was delicious, including some specials we ordered; and our server was lovely. We made reservations, which I would definitely advise as it gets busy! We sat upstairs which...was a little quieter. The downstairs seating area seemed packed and very lively.More

Too much money to few food and some items are in the menu to trick foreigners. One example is the wagyu.

The cooks are good and quick and the ingredients very fresh and seasonal. Pressed sashimi and the spring herbs tempura are very good. Service is polite. The owner /manager however is a witch of a lady. Can be brusque with staff (she thinks we don’t...understand Japanese) and occasionally with customers.More

We were given a table on the 2nd floor; a noodle shop near the station would have been more fun. The food was excellent, so was the service, but the place was so boring we will not come back Plenty of other excellent and more...fun places to eat at if they can't give you a table downstairsMore

We arrived early without reservation and didn’t think we’d get in as it was clearly very popular. After a very short wait we were invited to the counter and greeted enthusiastically by the chefs. We then had a front row seat watching the chefs meticulously...prepare the dishes and explain each to us. A fabulous dining experience we will not forget.More

We loved our dinner with meal choices assisted by one of the chefs. He was knowledgeable (when we weren't) and helped us to some good choices. The vibe is friendly with good quality food, with exceptional value for money

First, the hostess was rude when we got there without reservation and we asked if we could get a counter table (we saw local people getting there without reservation and receiving a totally different service). Despite that we managed to reserve for later in the...night. We ordered just 3 plates and it took one hour to receive them, all the tables around us got there later than us and received their orders before. We had to make many follow ups to receive our orders, without explanation or excuses. Finally, when the check came, it came more expensive than it should. Then, they explained that a super tiny portion of an appetizer that they gave us when we arrived was charged, what we have never seen here in Japan or anywhere else in the world. Again, it was not a smooth process to cancel this charge, we had to argue with the same hostess that received us on the first place. Our recommendation as people who travel lot around the world: go to the local ikazaya 2 blocks further going on Nakazawa Station direction (it is called Nombei, but you wont find in google, I think it is with its japanese name), better food, less expensive, and with much more care on the service.More

This was the worst experience we had in Japan!!! Do not come here! It was expensive for such a normal food and really bad service. When we first got to the place the host was very unpolite and we also notice that she treated better...the japanese customers that arrived after us. Our plate took more than one hour to get to us, two other tables that ordered after us got their plates, we had to call on the waiter twice, at the second time we asked for the plates it was clear to us that he had forgot about it and rushed our order to the kitchen. To top it of they charged us with a small appetitizer that we did not order and it was never mentioned to us that it was a “rule of the place” that each and all customers must pay for that awful tasting small plate. Well we do not recomend this place, this is clear for tourists to come spend money and does not represent the japanese real food experience. There is another small place very close by, in the other corner close to the main street, that is called Nombei it is located in the second floor. Although the menu is japanese and the waiter does not speak english like in the Fuwari, he was sooo helpful and very pleasant!! The food was delicious and the prices were great!!More

We came here on our first night in Kanazawa. We had counter seats and we had a great chat with one of the young chefs. They are so efficient. Service is commendable. We had raw shirako for the first time. Pretty tasty. Every dish we...ordered were delicious. I'd happily come back the next time we visit Kanazawa again.More

This was in close walking distance to our hotel, Hotel Pacific. There was an English menu and the staff member looking after us was English speaking. However, it is very much a Japanese restaurant which is what we were looking for. We shared all the...plates and there was an excellent selection and all the food was delicious and interesting. The tempura mushroom and shrimp was a favourite. Definitely glad we were able to get in on a Friday night as it was very busy. We booked beforehand otherwise we would not have been able to get in. If you decide on this you won’t be disappointed.More

Every course was delicately presented on fine Japanese crockery which added to the whole experience. We had the chef's recommended tasting menu at 5800¥ +tax per person. Delicious, high quality and would definitely recommend for a nice treat. Left feeling nicely full with delicious flavours...in our memory.More

You may be lucky, but it was packed both times I went. If you go as a walk in then I think it calmed down after 9pm.
