Worth going to at least once during Happy Hour

We had driven by this place on the freeway for years and we thought we'd finally try it. I had always heard how wonderful Japanese steak is so my expectations were quite high (perhaps too high). I'm very glad that we went during happy hour when they have some good specials (Sun-Thurs from 4pm... read more

I've tried this restaurant thrice in the last eight years. Each time when you walk in it smells like dirty grease, and while the food is okay, the service is very inattentive and the stench is distracting. Go to Umi Ushi they're always excellent.

Went for a birthday dinner with family. The hibachi cook was unfriendly and just stood and cooked, no interaction no show of talents. He looked irritated the whole time. Waitress did no refills, after the meal we waited over 29 minutes, no one came to ask us about desert, refills or to go boxes for the leftovers..completely ignored. Had to... More

My husband & I treated our kids & grandkids to hibachi dinner on 11/1/14. Due to traffic a couple people were later than our reservation time, but the staff was very accommodating & seated us at the table anyway, then proceeded to quickly serve drinks. Once everyone was seated the chef started with his presentation. He was clever, funny, and... More

Went to Hisui to give it a second try and to see if the wrinkles with the change of ownership were ironed out. The service was dramatically better than before and the staff was quite attentive. We went to have sushi via the floating boats. The chef was polite and attentive but the sushi was just not up to the... More

So my daughter, my friend and I came here one afternoon to eat hibachi..I thought our lunch was going to go nice and smoothly...not! So first it took a very long time for us to place our orders, then it was very odd that the waiter put the pitcher of water next to my friend (I guess so she could... More

We stop by Hisui every few weeks on our way between Dunsmuir and the Bay Area. Sit at the Sushi Bar right where you enter the restaurant (there is another Sushi Bar in the back of the restaurant). They have half price on all their rolls in the evenings. So for very little you can have a very nice meal.... More

My family and I have been coming to Hisui Steakhouse since it opened a number of years ago. Recently, I was told it changed owners and so we went to check it out for a business lunch. I am hopeful the problems we experienced are temporary and I will try it again but this trip was less than optimal. The... More

This is a fun place to go. You have a choice of the hibachi side where they cook in front of you or in the restaurant ordering from the regular menu. The food is great and we usually order the steak and shrimp. The steak can be a bit tough at times, however the remainder of the meal is really... More

I live in Napa and have driven by here for years. I didn't realize they served sushi. I'm so glad I stopped last month. I was greeted with a smile and asked where I would like to sit. At the boat bar:) I was no sooner seated than I was asked if I would like something to drink. She brought... More
