The first thing you see when you walk in is the definite Japanese atmosphere, as they do go all out with the decor. We waited in the bar area for a few minutes and no one asked if we wanted anything, let alone a drink. We were then seated at a table with two other couples so we didn't find... More

We ordered the Crown Specialties which included an appetizer (shrimps), salad, veggies & dessert. I had the Shrimp Entree & my husband had the Sirloin; both were very good. So was the fried rice (costs extra). The Green Tea ice cream is highly recommended. Re service, the staff did not act welcoming nor hospitable; they were all just going about... More

We weren't sure if we would really like this as it was our first time, but the food was excellent, and the service was generally very good. We would come back for sure. It wasn't perfect, but definitely memorable. We ordered several types of sushi as appetizers and they were generally good, but not superb. I can concur with a... More

Had dinner here for a company function. The restaurant was interesting inside and the menu had lots of variety, but those were the only positives about the experience. The place was cramped, our table was small and it was uncomfortable to eat, it also didn't help having lots of dirty dishes pile up. The service was lacking attention and were... More

Great food, a bit expensive, but the service was very poor. We order appetizers, they bring something else. if you want to ask the waitress a question about the menu, all she answered was yes yes.

The first thing you notice is the decor. My coworkers and I went to dinner tonight after a training class. It is a bit pricey but, we enjoyed ourselves and the service was good tonight. The food was what you would expect of a hibatchi grill.

Beautiful venue, amazing food ("egg sauce" on the fried rice is a MUST), and decent service. It's a little pricy, but well worth it. It was abnormally warm (even accounting for the grills) however!

It takes a lot for me to write a negative review about a restaurant, but I am compelled to do so about Ron of Japan in Northbrook because both my teenage son and I were sick after having had dinner there. I was expecting it to be as good as Benihana in terms of food quality, service and overall experience... More
