    My husband and I went there for my birthday. I saw the ad on FB, looked great, wanted to give it a try. We are foodies, love to try new restaurants. Seating is a maximum of two hours. We both had the Prime tasting menu. The menu is very misleading. It says minimum 2 people which is fine, however, I expected a tasting menu to be served with individual portion for each person, not to have shared plates. Also, whenever we went for a tasting menu, each food item would come out one at a time, not two or three dishes together, how could you do a tasting with three different items all at once. The restaurant was very busy, they just pushed all the food out so they can turn the table over again in less than two hours. We were seated in a single table for two, there was not space for multiple dishes. We had to hurry up to finish each dish so there would be space for the next item. At one point, we had to tell the server to slow down on our order. A very disappointing experience, wouldn’t recommend to any of our friends to go.

    We try the Prime tasting menu. The chef's choice of sashimi was OK. The rock shrimp tempura wasn't great. The batter got soft pretty fast. The rest of the items on the menu were excellent, especially the Crispy Bluefin Tuna Tamaki and Grill Yuzu miso Cod. The service was excellent.

    Updated modern looking decor compared to previous Ema Tei restaurant that was in that same location prior to Muni Robata. Servers were friendly and enthusiastic, but extremely inexperienced. Bar service was slow. First two or three food orders arrived before our beers did. Our server insisted on pouring it for me, but she did not know how to pour it into my glass. Ended up with way too much head and it spilling over. They need instruction and practice. Food had a couple of standouts: yuzu scallops and crispy salmon temaki. The rest of the food we had was disappointingly average and expensive for what it was: grilled chicken, pork ribs, and ribeye, crab dumplings. Hamachi had too much lemon in its dressing making it overly sour and overwhelming any truffle flavour. Caviar on the wagyu gunkan was unnecessary and did not add much to flavour. Only inflated cost. Unlikely to return given the price and food quality.

    Overall a good experience. Nicely renovated from the previous setup. The only place that does so many robata dishes in the city, and all at a high caliber. We also had the mushroom rice which has a risotto consistency and very fragrant. A bit on the pricy side but they have few competitors in their niche.

    Attended for brunch, great value, good food. Fish quality was good, however the nigiri was a little lackluster. (Brunch sushi quality appears to be of a lesser quality to that of dinner). Oysters were not fully shucked when given to us, hammering home an idea of poor food prep that soured the eating experience. Left feeling like I wasnt quite satisfied with the experience, as the brunch offerings did not seem to meet my full expectations considering the price of the meal (66/person). While starters were unlimited, I felt as though my appetite was not met - my stomach was full, but the lack of variety between each of the starters (all cold seafood focused dishes) left a little to be desired. Lastly food appeared to come out of the kitchen at random times just as it was ready, as I received my main 10 minutes before my girlfriend did, and we saw a table beside us get one of their main before they even received any starters. While we ate our fill and made that $66 per person go far, I feel as though you can get a better eating experience elsewhere for the same price. Muni’s brunch offering felt unfocused, poorly run, and lacking uniqueness. It felt more like an all you can eat restaurant than it felt like a modern fine dining experience.

    It was alright. Ambience was great, food was decent but pricey, and the service was okay. We went to celebrate a birthday and we ordered a few items. The crab dumplings weren’t that memorable, the yuzu scallops were delicious, and the crispy salmon temaki was great. The wagyu steak and sides were buttery to a point where we couldn’t finish it. I wish there was more acid in the sides or sauces to cut down on the richness. The restaurant was kind enough to give us a cheesecake for the birthday and that was a nice touch. What left us with a sour taste in our mouths was our last interaction. As there were two different steaks on the menu, I had specified the size of 10oz when ordering. When the bill came, I was charged for the 8oz which was $37 more expensive. Was it an honest mistake? Who knows. I tried clarifying and explained I had specified the size given there’s two options on the menu but she wouldn’t budge. The server who had placed the steak on our table was new (she said it was her first day) and struggled to explain what was on the plate and we could barely hear her. Were we at fault for not knowing what we got? We paid for what we ate but I feel ripped off as it wasn’t what I ordered. Because of some mistake our meal was suddenly ~$50 ($37+tax+tip) more. I had a budget going into this dinner and I was not pleased. At a restaurant at your price level, I expected more. Your staff need more training and could’ve handled this better. We will not be back as there are other establishments we’d rather spend our money at.

    Good service and atmosphere. Servers were coming up every few minutes to ask if we were okay and were always trying to clear the table, sometimes with food on it that we haven't finished yet. There was a seating time limit so I think I think they were trying to get us to gtfo lol. Time definitely flies while in the restaurant though. Food was mix of mediocre/good. Ordered the $90/person tasting menu. The oysters and sashimi were super fresh/amazing but everything else was not bad but not memorable. For the crab dumpling, the dough part didn't seem fully cooked/chewy and had a raw dough taste to the outside dough casing of it. Not sure if it was supposed to taste like that since I eat dumplings pretty regularly. The med rare steak was a bit dry and chewy - I typically like the outside of the steak to be a bit more charred/crispy but overall the steak was okay. I enjoy eating and BBQ my own steaks pretty often so it might just be my own preference. The Tiramisu dessert was pretty good though, very light, not too sweet and good texture. Forgot what else came with the tasting menu, but I don't remember anything specifically that stood out so I think they were okay. Overall this is a pretty good place to try once if you want a quiet setting, but not a place I'd come back to unless I wanted super fresh seafood. I was still a bit hungry afterwards and there's definitely better places with better value around the area.

    Went for Sat brunch, expecting it to be very good as this is a very expensive brunch (total ~$89 includes tip) and based on a very good review from a friend (she did not eat much of the sashimi or nigiri though, my friend & I had a few servings each). Food turned out average but service was quite good. Skimpy on the utensils, had to always ask for more, for example when sharing dishes, there should always be extra as a serving utensil. Fresh oysters were small & very skinny, not plump & juicy but I suppose summer oysters are usually not the best quality. Fish was sinewy (tuna) and not the freshest, I have had better with less expensive pricing elsewhere. The rice was a little hard on the nigiri, not melt in your mouth soft & fresh. My black cod was underdone, a little too 'wet', it would have to be cooked by about 20 secs of more high heat cooking, I did not want to send it back because it would likely have been overcooked then. My friend's wagyu beef, while somewhat tender, seemed like frozen beef, did not have a fresh feel or taste to it. And frankly eating the same unlimited appetizers that were not the freshest was nothing to be savored. All in all, quite disappointing from what their marketing states as best in their class...far from it.

The servers were knowledgable and on point whether refilling water checking on us you couldn’t ask for more. We had the tasting menu and kept looking at other plates and wish we had ordered that too. The portion was excellent the variety perfect and probably the best black cod I’ve ever had
