Went to Naha for dinner during Restaurant Week (before committing to a $300-ish date night). The food was incredible: Well-crafted, well-portioned and creative. What I love about this chef is the thoughtfulness in how both flavors and textures come together in the finished dishes. The donut dessert I had was probably the most fun dish I've ever eaten. I will definitely come back for a special occasion. Only complaint is that the restaurant got pretty noisy by the time we left, as the seating is very open and in close quarters.

Service was 5/5, food was 4/5. The foie gras appetizer was fantastic and worth every penny. The duck breast entre wa flavorful, but surprisingly chewy - there was a piece of connective tissue in there that I had to use all my force to cut through with the knife. It still taste good, was just that eating it was not as elegant as I would have expected. The chocolate dessert was great with an excellent balance of sweet and bitter flavors. The server was informative and attentive. The decor was pleasant.

FINALLY, I came, saw and ate :) We were here for Restaurant Week. We were able to make an OpenTable reservation. I love the space. Clean, crisp, upscale...perfect. The service was fantastic. Our server totally read us and was able to engage us and not be like super pretentious, etc. The food was fantastic. This place is worthy of the Michelin. Pork, seafood, dessert...all delicious! And for $44 price tag for RW, it was a STEAL! They also coursed it out properly. Although the restaurant was JAMMED, we didnt feel rushed. I would definitely be back for the regular menu.

Food: 5 Decor: 4 Service: 4 Michelin: * I came here with five other coworkers for dinner around 7:15pm on Wednesday. Another Michelin star to add under my belt :) 1. Hand-Harvested Scallops from Barnegat Light roasted with Vanilla Bean, Citrus and Spices, Caramelized Belgian Endive and Hamuka Farm Hearts of Palm, Artisanal Tamworth Bacon, Muskmelon and Pineapple Mint $21.00 ~Delicious. Scallops were cooked perfectly, and the sauce was amazing. 2. A Simple Salad of Beautiful Garden Greens, "Julianna" Herb Crusted Goat's Milk Cheese, and Walnuts $14.00 ~Pretty good. Like its name suggests, it was a simple salad with a few components, but they worked very well together. The beet salad did look pretty good though. 3. Lacquered Aged Moulard Duck Breast with Mountain Huckleberries,Charred Tropea Onions, Caramelized Fennel and Bronze Fennel Seeds, NAHA Honey and Port $36.00 ~Good. Nearly half of the duck was too chewy/tough, which was pretty disappointing. The remaining half was delicious though. 4. Bittersweet Chocolate Pavé, Local Raspberries, Salted Caramel Peanuts, Milk Chocolate Beignet and Chocolate Cream $12.00 ~Yummy. Peanut butter and chocolate. The chocolate was very rich though, and I would have liked more raspberries. 5. House white and red pinot noir wine Not bad. I had a bit of both, and they were both decent. Service was excellent. our server gave some good recommendations for dishes, although he could have been a bit more friendly. We finished our 4-course meal around 10pm, so it took about 2.5 hrs total. overall, excellent food and one of the best meals I've had. A couple things that could have been better, so rounding down to 4 stars.

Ahh another overrated Michelin starred restaurant--- not that I frequent Michelin starred restaurants, but I wouldn't think that Naha is a Michelin starred restaurant unless I knew that going in. Came here for Restaurant week in early February, and wasn't impressed. Our server was great-- and good service is important, but the food just didn't cut it. I ordered the soup, which was probably my favorite of the meal that night. I ordered the duck breast, which was just okay, and the bomboloni, which also was just average. We paid extra for the Gateau basque--- which the three of us agreed was disappointing for how the waiter sold it as his favorite dessert. The chocolate panna cotta was WAY better than the other two desserts. The gateau basque wasn't as rich as you would expect with custard as a primary point to the dessert-- instead it was slightly dry. Also not sure how I felt about the decor of the place-- too many big pine cones and other woodsy elements to the place--- I think they were trying too hard. Definitely a pass for me, and I would recommend Boka over this restaurant.

We had an amazing dinner at NAHA for our anniversary. Everything was superb: the understated, quietly elegant decor, the view of streets, the cocktail menu, the wine list, the unobtrusive yet attentive service, the outstanding, inventive menu, and of course the food. We're wowed by the appetizer items: corn soup, risotto, and scallops. My husband claimed that the corn soup was one of the best dishes he's ever tasted. The quail was excellently done, naturally. "Inventive" is the word that comes to mind when I try to summarize NAHA. What's amazing is that they manage to deliver soul-warming comfort food and experience at the same time. The Michelin star is well-deserved.

Naha is great. but your wallet will not thank you. The food is delicious and I really enjoy the atmosphere, but be sure to save for a special occasion as again it's not a cheap meal. Well worth it either way.
