Of all the four places I ended up with time only for these two.

Saito's is a very dark but nice room.
The food and service were all exceptional and I enjoyed the time there with the three ladies.

At Saito we had the ohitashi sesame spinach appetizer, ikura sushi, spicy tuna, yakitori and gyoza appitizers. The mains were NY Steak with eggplant, tempura, sukiyaki, and tonkatsu main.

All were good and appreciated.

Dinner with 3 soft drinks was 107.30$ left a 23$ tip

Mashiko. I will note this. The chef was a little under the weather for my original Friday night reservation. Which I was about to not be able to make because of one of the ladies being a bit under the weather and the place being packed so we'd not get the appropriate time and treatment. It became a blessing in disguise. Remade the reservation for Sunday and had the Kaiseki

We had in total I believe 12 dishes or 14.
I can't remember them all some are noted in creepygirl's post on Mashiko

We consumed 9 bottles of sake and I will try to get one of the girls to try and recall all of the dishes.

Each dish was perfect. There was not a single dish that was not liked at our table and 3 and a half hours later we were all elated to have had the kaiseki. It was a nice end to our trip and time in Seattle.

Kaiseki for 4 with sake for 3 was $280 with tax 306.04
left a $60 tip at this one.

The time, attentiveness and enjoyment have placed this as one of the best 2 or 3 meals I have had.

Thanks to creepygirl for pointing out Mashiko. I remember how nice the people are in seattle as soon as I land back at LA's airport each time and want to return again.
