This is an excellent Japanese Steak House. The food is always fantastic and the service is excellent. However, this is a busy restaurant and even with reservations it is likely that there will be a wait. Although, it's usually not very long and there is a nice bar where you can sit and wait until your table is ready. For... More

This place used to be very good. Lately it's been making us go to the bathroom within half hour of dining.

Made a reservation 4 days prior for a birthday dinner. Arrived at our reserved time and the host did not have our reservation in the computer. Waited about 30 minutes for a table. Food was good, cook was great. Staff very poor

I have gone multiple times and both my wife and I enjoy it. The restaurant is clean, but dark and sometimes seems a little grungy. The food is excellent and the portions are huge (especially now with the free lunch coming with some dinners). The wait staff outside of the chef is really hit or miss. Sometimes they are very...

The portions are huge, and the food is good. The cook at or table was funny and did a great job.We had lunch boxed for the next day and that really turned into two days. So much food and so good. We have already made plans to return.

I have tried other Japanese Steakhouses, but this one is still my favorite. The food is consistently good, and the sauces are great!! I went with a few friends that were visiting Florida and they loved it. The food and service was great. We had Chef Jeff and Angelique; they both made it a fun night. I ordered a combo... More

Usually when I review some place local I'll go 2 or 3 times first. Not this time. Typical Japanese steakhouse style concept. The place is old, outdated, looks dirty and the food was so over salted I had trouble eating it. Other than a kid wanting to go for a birthday or something like that I'm not sure why they... More

I brought my son here for his 18th birthday. I had made reservations and we had to wait for others to be seated-that weren't part of my party. When they showed up a woman came out to take our drink orders. They eventually came out and we sat around waiting...then the chef finally showed up and took everyone's orders. It... More

I really wanted to like this place because it's so close to my new condo but unfortunately I just didn't. The place was empty except for one table and yet we had to wait 15 minutes for another group to come in. We were ready to walk out when they called us over to our table. The cook did a... More
