For a special occasion this maybe a good place for you to visit. Xex West in Osaka. It’s not a casual place and I believe you should wear something formal. When you call to make a reservation ask about the dress code.

There are 3 different sections of the restaurant, bar section, Japanese section, and Italian section. I went to the Italian part. The waiters and waitresses said things in Italian, but of course they spoke Japanese with the customers. I didn’t check their English ability. However, at an expensive restaurant like that, I’m sure they have someone who can manage. You don’t have to push a button or yell out anything to get their attention, if you look up and want something, someone will rush over to ask what you would like. Yes, it’s that kind of place.

The atmosphere is really nice, which is probably the big selling point of this spacious place. The service is great too with their almost telepathic ability to know when you need something. They also have a good collection of wine, about 2,000 bottles. We went for dinner and had 2 glasses of champagne, 3 appetizers, pizza, pasta, dessert, and 2 coffees. Cost a little over 20,000 yen. I would say that’s reasonable for 2 people for a special occasion.
