Really good food, good service!

While on the tad bit pricy side, the food and service are very good. The cooks are very interactive when they prepare your meal. They ask if you'd like them to toss a piece of broccoli and you catch it, ours made the lobster tail dance and then through the empty she'll in his hat. The food was... read more

I booked part of the Shumo room for my daughter's Sweet 16 birthday party. When we arrived they were not welcoming at all. No smile, no hello, nothing. Their biggest concern was if everybody was there. Not everybody arrived right on time and they made us wait in the small entrance area. We were finally seated and rushed around. There... More

I can't explain how yummy the yummy-yummy sauce is and the food. The show is even better! Only thing is, my veggies could have been cooked a little longer and my husband's steak was well-done instead of medium. Without any hassle they prepared another steak. But it still wasn't medium (lol) but hey they tired! I guess they need a... More

We were very rushed. There was very little entertainment. I've never been in and out of a Japanese restaurant in less than an hour. From sit to check, it was less than 45 minutes. At $100 for 2 people, it was definitely not worth it. I order the filet medium and my sister ordered the filet medium well. Both were... More

My husband and I like to take the kids to this restaurant every once in awhile. It's kind of expensive but the food and hibaci show are very good. If you go to this restaurant you will not be let down.

The food here was outstanding but totally rushed. 10 people sat down for dinner at 6:20 and completely done by 7:10 and presented with check immediately and it was way to rushed. It's a Monday night and made reservations for a Monday so would not be rushed and no reason for it because there were only 2 other tables cannot... More
