THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Geisha House Restaurant Review

: At the Dolce Group's Geisha House, the Hollywood club scene meets Tokyo's Ginza District to create a seriously hip venue, with some respectable Japanese cuisine at least a small part of the mix. The space hosts a lively 50-foot bar and saké lounge, a more sedate sushi bar and a bustling dining room draped with a huge photo mural of the Tokyo skyline backlit with neon. A towering red column stacked with fireplaces reaches skyward toward a mezzanine level and an upstairs bar with a retractable roof. A sommelier will help you choose a pricey bottle of saké (some nice sushi-friendly wines are also available) while you ponder a long list of traditional items and contemporary rolls. Cold starters include the uni shooter and kanpachi with yuzo-serrano dressing. There's also tempura --- lobster or miso-glazed rock shrimp --- with various sauces; robata-yaki (grilled skewers of meats, vegetables or seafood); and entrées such as grilled Kobe-style rib-eye steak, Alaskan king crab with yuzu-citrus butter, and miso-marinated black cod. Sushi purists may not appreciate Geisha House, but when one considers this is as much a club as restaurant, respect for the cuisine is justified. Western-style desserts like molten chocolate cake and coconut crème brûlée round out an experience a world apart from your serene neighborhood sushi bar.

There are few resturants that I have been too that I will say have grabed my appitite like this one has. There Fish is so fresh, there sushi is delectable, and there staff is amazing. I would go back anytime. Loved the house music they played, and not to mention the veiw of everything. They have a three story fire place that adds such warm, and cozyness to the enviorment. I recommend this to anyone looking to enjoy good food.

I thought the food was wonderful, I also thought the staff was great. The only bad part was the lighting. It was a bit dark in there but the service and food was worth it.
The Geisha House: Innovate sustenance, Innovate life

The Geisha House is one of my top recommendations for people looking forward to having a good time, while also enjoying good food. The ambience and setting are both unique and authentic. Geisha House is certainly a child of two worlds: it combines Japanese conservatism with American dynamism. The food featured at the Geisha House is also unique in that it blends traditional Japanese food with the eclectic mix that is american cuisine. I recommend ordering the Kobe rib eye. This dish is served on a porcelain plate, but it is still sizzling when it is brought out by the waiter. I definitely encourage first-timers to experiment a little, because the Geisha House has food ranging from steaks to raw fish. The bar also has a unique menu of its own and the drinks are blends that are both tasty and titillating.
