Food was average. They over charge you for every thing you order,( even rice). They put a 20 percent tip in the bill even if you have separate checks. Cost $110.38 for three people ! There are better Japanese Restaurants than this and cheaper. Even if you plan on on spending money do not spend it... read more

We walked into this restaurant without a wait (7:30pm on a Sunday night). American wait staff was very pleasant. Our chef was Amazing & hysterical! He had us laughing the entire dinner, and included our daughter (7) in all his jokes! Delicious food with average Hibachi prices ($10 kids / $16-$28 adults). Hands down the BEST Hibatchi "show" we've attended!... More

People rave about this place but the food isn't worth the money they charge. I went there with my daughter and we spent 70 dollars including the tip. The food is fine but it's not that fine.

I love Japanese steak houses but this one was not as good.. The cook seemed to be nervous and my stomach had issues later which is very rare. The food tasted good though

I rated this average because it had pros and cons. The chef was great the food was very good the service excellent, prices for kids is outrageous. You have to buy a kids meal if you sit at the grille table. They were 12.25 each plus another dollar something if they wanted fried rice instead of steamed, so almost $14.00... More

My wife and I come to St Augustine a lot and decided to try this restaurant. The Habachi Chef was very disappointing. Everything we ate had so much salt in it? The Chef put soy sauce and butter in everything that was on the grill. They did not even have a Whitefish on the menu and this place was the... More

The cooks/ chefs are entertaining and make everyone feel comfortable; the food appears to taste better than at other places; the vegetables are very good and more abundant than at other places; the prices may be better than similar other places.
