Is the intent that reviews are the cost of food for an entire meal or per dish? (I only ask because your review in the post above talks about food being Yen 500-1,500 and then says the place was expensive - so I'm confused.)

I'm happy to post some reviews if I get a chance - personal favorites include:
http://www.lachance.jp (French - Hirakawacho)
http://www.eliolocanda.com (Italian - Hanzomon)
http://www.arossa.com (Australian/Italian - Shibuya)
http://www.manuel.jp/english/yotsuya.htm (Portuguese - Yotsuya / Shibuya)
http://www.seryna.co.jp/shop/shinjyuku-e.html (Shabu-Shabu / Teppanyaki - Shinjuku / Roppongi)

I wouldn't consider any of these cheap - they're probably Yen 5,000-10,000+ per head for three-course dinner and a reasonable bottle of wine - but reasonable value for what they are.

Since it's an izakaya-like restaurant, I listed prices per dish. It's pretty safe to go with whatever is appropriate; if one typically orders al a carte then the price per dish would be good, if it's a course menu or a buffet or you went for lunch specials, go with the price of the course or the buffet or the lunch special.

Go right ahead and post anything! I was looking for a good French restaurant about a month ago, oddly enough. :)
