Birthday acknowledging

Was okay January 28 (per husband request) his birthday went to Arigato. The owner sang happy birthday to two other tables and not ours. I think that was very rude. Won't be back

My family loved Arigato in North Tampa. My Dad was very excited when we took him to the new location in North Tampa for his 90th birthday. His free meal for his birthday ended up costing him more (with my Mother's meal) than what we paid for ours. My husband ate none of his food. When the bus boy asked... More

Avoid this place at all costs! This place has gone down hill because of the POOR management and therefore poor staff. My party of five arrived at 6 pm and was seated by 6:10. The taking of our orders, and serving of our soup and salad were staggered. When the chef arrived, he reconfirmed our order, and for some reason... More

How disappointing! My 12 year old daughter chose Arigato on North Dale Mabry for her birthday dinner. We arrived with 10 family members, gifts, cupcakes and a birthday girl banner. They told us about the birthday special ($20 off dinner for the birthday person). Then the manager proceeded to ask if we had ID for my daughter to prove it... More

The food was blah. Lots of starch: lots of rice and pasta. Less veggies. The soup is now Only broth. The prices are very high. I want to love this place but i can no longer recommend it. Yes, they will argue about the coupons.

Arigato is my girlfriend's favorite restaurant so we like to go there a few times per year. We didn't have a reservation this latest time so we had to wait around a half hour, but we've had reservations in the past and still had to wait so don't choose Arigato if you're on a tight schedule. The food itself was... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner experience.This was the best meal we have had in some time and we eat out a lot. The food was so flavorful and succulent, not to mention plentiful. We even got lunch to go, which was a treat. The restaurant is open and airy, done very tastefully. From the start to finish,... More

Went there for the first time after being a loyal Kobe's guy. First, the salad dressing is no good. Too creamy I think. Next, the rice and noodles were very salty. The ventilation was not turned on or something because we nearly got smoked out of the restaurant. For what they charge, the experience is not worth it. Definitely sticking... More

We recently ate here on a Saturday night, looking for something new to do for "date night". I had eaten many times at the former location when I was a young girl, but have never been to the new location. This of course, is despite being "grown up" a long time ago. :) We made reservations on OpenTable.com for 9pm... More
