Experiences

  • tatami room

    Multiple dates available
    You have reserved a true traditional Japanese experience floor seating (with no well under the table for legs). Remove your shoes, and take a step onto our tatami room. A garden window view completes this unique dining experience. This is a unique experience, but it can be challenging for those with limited flexibility. Please let us know in advance if you need to change these reservations, as we will not be able to offer other options upon arrival. Children under 10 are not recommended.

    The service was outstanding, the food was delicious, and the decor and general ambience were close to perfect. True to the advice on the web site, the tatami tables were a bit of a flexibility exercise, but it was worth it. We had the misfortunate of dining a few feet away from a wedding rehearsal dinner, so the noise level was a bit much. Again, however, it was well worth it.

    We ordered 5 dishes, two of the 5 were very good and the rest were only ok. The worst was the kaarage chicken.

    Izanami is incredible, from saki flights to small dishes to share, everything is delicious! The mushrooms are otherworldly and the grilled avocado is absolutely decadent. The service is informed and really personal. Everything about this restaurant is spot on!

    Izanami is our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. It is consistently good in every way. The food is outstanding. We recently took friends and they exclaimed about all the food but particularly the wagyu steak saying it was the best they ever had. I have reservations every few weeks for the whole summer!

    We wanted to celebrate with our friend from India and he had several restaurants he recommended for good Indian food. Unfortunately, they all close on Monday. We decided to try Izanami. It was wonderful, the service was top notch and the recommended dishes were exceptional and perfect except that our friend is vegetarian. There are limited vegetarian options, especially when you compare to Indian restaurant offerings. Can’t fault Izanami. Just will choose otherwise for our vegetarian friends or when Japanese food is not the goal.

    Amazing food and great service in soothing ambiance. A little pricy, but well worth it for the quality of the food and the experience…extensive list of sake!
