The restaurant boasts a sophisticated setting complete with bespoke Arita-yaki tableware and a stone dragon's head at the entrance, symbolizing protection and strength. Diners can choose from a ten-course tasting menu or a longer degustation that celebrates the season's best offerings. Additionally, à la carte options are available for those seated at the counter.

The restaurant's name, Ryuzu, is inspired by the Japanese word for a watch crown, reflecting the chef's dedication to his craft and his desire to leave guests with a lasting impression of joy.
