Upon entering the restaurant, guests enjoy a seasonal, multicourse tasting menu with the optional sake pairing to balance out all of the savory courses. Lasting 2.5–three hours, guests embark on a dining journey.

Menu items include Dashi Dare Yaki, Niku Bako, Kanmi and more; however, the star of the restaurant is none other than the premium cuts of authentic Japanese A5 Wagyu. Each staff member of Nikutei Futago boasts extensive knowledge of Wagyu, knowing how to handle, cut and present the beef to create the best experience for guests. Dishes also come with hand-crafted sauces and small dishes made with locally sourced ingredients.
