We had dinner here before a flight out of Osaka, not sure what to expect. It was incredible, truly. Each dish better than the last. We ate at some of the top restaurants in Tokyo in the days leading up, but this was the best dinner we had in Japan, and one of the best we've had around the world (we live in NY and eat out all the time). Go here if you have the chance. I'm surprised it doesn't have another michelin star. And the service was second to none. Well worth it.

We are absolutely delighted with your review, thank you so much for taking the time to share it in Trip Advisor. I am thrilled you could fit the dinner in La Baie as your last dining experience before leaving Japan, and most important that this was the highlight of the trip. Chef Gibert and all our Ladies and Gentlemen take great inspiration from the memories they create and your recognition is really appreciated.

My wife and son loved it, but I was just okay with it. Service was excellent. It was ~$1,600 for three (prix fix, with a drink.)

This was our first visit to Osaka, and when we found out that La Baie within the Ritz-Carlton Osaka was Michelin rated, I made reservations for the family. I have raved about Michelin rated restaurants to my teenage daughter, and I was happy to obliged her with her first experience.

We were seated at a large corner table that did have the feel of a French restaurant although we were in Japan. The staff was very attentive, although their broken English was a little difficult to understand at times, which is understandable as describing these French dishes in perfect English would be challenging enough. The were three different price level of dining options, and we opted for the middle one. The staff did allow my wife and me to make minor substitutions.

The baguette and butter were undoubtedly French, and I do not dare to start explaining the different dishes that we had. Suffice to say that every plate was a work of art. The large white asparagus with seaweed jelly was very unique. The roasted sole with crayfish and the wagyu beef tenderloin were exceptional. Although each plate was small in portion, we were more than full at the end of the meal. As a parting gift, we were presented with a small Eiffel tower piece of chocolate in a blue Tiffany-like box.

The only reason why the visit did not receive a perfect rating from me was that the temperature of the restaurant was too warm, considering that a number of men wore dinner jackets.

We celebrated my sister's birthday at La Baie on 9 May 2017. Everything was just perfect, from ambiance, food, wine, to service, everything! I ordered a small cake when I made the reservation for my sister as a little surprise. The cake looked absolutely fantastic and tasted heavenly. The staff spoke very good English and so tourists had no problem communicating with them. Also, the sommelier was highly professional and knowledgeable. I had been thinking about choosing other fine dining restaurants in Osaka before going to La Baie. I am glad I made the right choice. La Baie made my sister's birthday extra special!
