It won't be my first time in Japan or Tokyo, but I haven't gone for a higher-end meal during my visits and thought I'd try one this time. Atmosphere and food are about equally important - I want good value food that's unique and delicious in a fun/welcoming atmosphere (max budget Y15,000 for food-only).

Unfortunately, I've only now discovered Den, which seems to be everything I'm looking for but I doubt I can get a reservation (I'll be in Tokyo mid-March). Instead, I made reservations for both Ode and Le Sputnik for lunch (on two different days) but was wondering if they serve similar styles of food? They both seem to be French with Japanese influences.

I just want to try and get a sense of whether they're different enough that it makes sense for me to keep both reservations. If I only keep one, it will probably be Ode - food looks more appealing even though Le Sputnik seems like it would have the type of atmosphere I prefer.
