I'm not usually a big fan of fusion cuisine, and French/Japanese is a particularly odd pairing. But I was quickly sold by the quality of the food. I particularly recommend the bacon-wrapped mochi, which makes great use of disparate textures, and the chocolate-raspberry dessert cocktail.

High ceilings and big windows let you look up at the Bay Bridge even from the back tables. Fancy dishes prepared with care. Pleasant, casual service.

They have the deep fried pangko-covered rice cakes topped with spicy tune that is just to die for. I would treck to this place in rain or shine for that appetizer alone. They have great outdoor seating that overlooks the pier from a blocj away and valet plus an excellent hppy hour menu. The space is ecclectic with dim lights and an Asian-inspired theme. There's plenty of seating, making it perfect for a fun date night or business dinner.

Food was excellent, but the health care surcharge is exploitative. When you charge $30 or more for entrees, you don't deserve an extra 4%. Avoid this place until they remove the surcharge

I was very impressed with the food and the service. We ordered a wide selection of sushi rolls, appetizers, and entrees, and all were quite tasty. The rib-eye steak was perfectly done as ordered -- between medium-rare and rare. Very nicely done. Half-price wine bottles on Sunday nights! Wide selection. The half-bottle of Sancerre was excellent. We will be returning soon!

Came here for my birthday with a group of friends. The ambiance is nice-- definitely a chic place with a beautiful view of the bridge. This spot is perfect for date nights and happy hour. I'd say the food is pretty good, but nothing too great. The restaurant is a little overpriced since you're really paying for the atmosphere and location.

Quick tip: Chaya has all night happy hour in the bar. Chaya is a Japanese fusion restaurant, the prices are what you would expect of a fusion place - $25-$35 for entrees. I had the chicken duo which was really moist and flavorful. My husband and I also ordered the tempura okra which was a bit oily for my taste. Chaya is worth trying, but there is nothing super special to make it a go to restaurant.
