Hi, Emma! Do you have a fine dining restaurant to recommend?
Hmmm…. I think Abysse in Shibuya would be great. Why did you ask?
I’m planning to take Denise out on a date for our anniversary.
Since you both love seafood, I highly recommend Abysse.

Based on my experience, the restaurant mainly serves fresh seafood.

pleasant ambiance and good music.
