While this wouldn't get a 5 rating for me in Paris, it certainly warrants that in Sapporo. My wife and I had dinner here at the end of a great two week trip to Japan where we primarily had Japanese food so it was a nice treat to have a quality French dinner.

Highly recommend to others if you look French cuisine.

The dining room is on the 9th floor of the JR Tower - i.e. atop the Sapporo train station. It has a clubby feel more than a modern dining room but it works well.

I had read on another site that no English menu was provided but that wasn't the case at least this night when the menu was presented in both Japanese and English. 3 sets were offered - 8000Y, 12000Y, and 17000Y. My wife chose the 8K set and I did the 12K set. Wine list was extensive ranging from $80 to $400 or so. We picked one Cote du Phone but the waiter steered us to a 2005 Bordeaux that was about $100 - probably something you would pay more for in the US given the vintage.

Overall we found both sets to be a nice fusion between Japanese and French with certainly a dominant French theme but taking advantage of the local fish/seafood. My set was an uni crab appetizer, foie gras, grilled fish over salad, Hokkaido beef, two dessets, etc. My wife's was similar but the foie gras was replaced by a pate and she also has a fish risotto.

The servers were well trained and friendly realizing that little conversational English was understood.

The view is about as good as you are going to get in Sapporo - i.e. you are on the 9th floor overlooking the city but Sapporo in my opinion needs quite a bit of updating since few buildings have appeared to be built in the last 25 years.

One of the most celebrated French restaurants in Sapporo, perched atop JR Sapporo Station.

You won't leave disappointed with the food or service, but you can do better for the money.
