Having gone to a number of Motsunabe restaurant over the years, Yamanaka is highly recommended for those of you who prefer to eat a table instead of sitting on the floor. Practically all other establishments have you sit on the floor with very few, if any, having hori kotatsu (sunken kotatsu, similar to a table and chairs).
The motsu is good quality and tasty (highly recommend the miso broth). The price is reasonable (for Japan), as is the sake.
Yamanaka also has a pleasant interior well suited for dates, very different from other motsunabe restaurants that are more like izakaya that are crowded and noisy. As it is quite popular, I highly recommend you book a reservation in advance. It is practically impossible to simply walk in and eat there.
