Not worth the money

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.

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

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.

We usually only patronize the sushi bar as my wife and I both think they do it a bit better than the other two sushi places we tried in town. The fish is fresh and tasty and the rolls do not have too much rice and are cut to be easily eaten with chopsticks. We have tried the steakhouse side... More

My boyfriend and I decided to eat here with some friends on our night off. The waitress immediately started off with telling us she was just "alright" and explained to us why. We all assumed she was having a tough night as most of us work in restaurants and know that feeling. But her constant personal attitude really upset the... More
