“High floor, high class izakaya”
We were staying in the area and didn't want to eat at our hotel, so we found this restaurant on TA, a short distance from where we were staying. We had no reservation but had the hotel ring in advance and confirmed that they had tables after 8pm. We knew the restaurant was on the 42nd floor, but fi...nding the access wasn't as easy as it should be. We came off the Yurikamome elevated railway, Shimbashi stop, straight into the 1st floor of the Shiodome Center building (not to be confused with the main Shiodome shopping center). We saw signs indicating that we the restaurant was on the 42nd floor, but not how to get there. After wandering around a while we realized we had to be on the ground floor, and there is indeed a single express elevator that goes from the 1st floor to the 41st and 42nd floors. The restaurant asked us to wait for a few minutes, but it was worth it because we were shows straight to a window seat. These are floor to ceiling windows on the 42nd floor, so the view over Tokyo is dizzying; although it must be said that there are equally high towers around, so it's not exactly panoramic. The staff all spoke good english, and unlike other reviews we found the service prompt and attentive. There was a mix of visitors and locals. The menu is indeed extensive, but not very expensive. Given the location it's very good value. The food is high-end Izakaya style, i.e., many small plates. The Sake list was a page long and we had help sampling a few. We had probably 6 dishes all up, ranging from quite hearty tempura, through to a small bowl of delicate Yuba. My favorite was the pork skewers, probably cooked Yakatori style. All up, this was a nice experience made great by the view, which you can probably appreciate even if not sitting at a window table. The food was great value, but not really special. So definitely a big thumbs up if you're in the Shimbashi area.

I was fortunate enough to have my Japanese friend take me to this Izakaya. The restaurant is located on the 42nd Floor of the Shidome Building and has a commanding view of the city. The menu was wide ranging and everything we ordered tasted great. I tried the fermented firefly squid (Hotaku Ika) whi...ch my Japanese friends said was an acquired taste.

I've had the pleasure of visiting Washoku En Shiodome two times on two different visits to Japan. I will return. The atmosphere, food and service are a pleasure. I was the with Japanese colleagues who took care of ordering food and Sake. Every we had was fabulous. I will return.
