The starred restaurant usually offers an Omakase menu which in Japanese means: “I leave it to the chef”. It’s usually a multi-course menu that is delicately designed by the prestigious chef Mr. Hisroshi Yoshitake, whom I had the pleasure to meet. He is a very...More

I would say that my evening at Sola ranks as one of my best eating experiences ever. I can't say it was overtly Japanese, although that is where the Chef was born, and so it has an influence. French influenced by Japan was our tasting...More

In fairness, the food was exceptional. The chef is talented and creative, preparing complete dinners each night. Guests are not given a choice, although they will make an effort to accommodate food allergies. The reason for the low rating is that our (very expensive) evening...More
