Good place and have vegetarian options
This was a business lunch and they put me in a room so I thought this was a good option and there is privacy. However, I realized that the chef was there cooking for other rooms in our room. Also the seating is like a c shaped seating so not the best option for the meeting. I was not happy about having a person there cooking for others so u have no control till when will u have a person not needed in the room and therefore not enough privacy.

Doesn't live up to the hype
I was looking forward to having a good meal at this restaurant, but it didn't live up to the hype. My meal there was in one of the private rooms, and when we arrived the music was on very loud. When I asked that it be lowered, it became obvious that the loud music was there to cover up the very loud and annoying kitchen exhaust noise that could be heard in the room. In the private room they would only serve us extremely expensive bottles of wine; I would have preferred that they either impose a fee for use of the room or a minimum consumption charge and serve more reasonably priced wine, which I believe is available in the main restaurant. I should add when I asked the server to decant the wine, which cost a couple of hundred dollars a bottle, or thereabouts, he did not understand the concept. Finally, we found someone else in the restaurant who could do this for us. Really, serving very expensive red wine without knowing about such basic things as decanting? The meal itself was okay but not memorable, in other words a bit disappointing for a high-end restaurant.

The Best Omakase Ever !!
Iseya is an experience. You go for the chef-led omakase and are presented with course after course of beautifully-formed, high-quality dishes that take your plate on a little tour of Japanese flavors and techniques. The dining room is huge and reservations are required, but I got to come with a group of friends, and it was a great experience trying and discussing all the different courses together. Course by course, everyone is served at the same time, and the staff explain each and every component--the work that goes behind each of these dishes/components is indeed immense! After the omakase meal, then we went for dessert! The dessert was incredibly delicious. Overall, a great meal and definitely something to experience! The restaurant itself is small but homey and authentic (the bathroom even features an automated Japanese toilet). The service is the epitome of Japanese hospitality and please make sure to come with an appreciation of the work, care, and quality that goes behind each bite of food.
