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!

The pageantry of Hibachi is a thrill for youngsters and the restaurant caters to it! The food is average,the experience delightful.

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

I've been to hibachi styled restaurants my entire life and Ron of Japan disappoints big time. Their chefs do no tricks with the customers, they are all "business". No egg spin, so shrimp toss, no smiles. Eating at R.O.J. was like eating food with stone statues as my chefs. Customer service was no where to be found. They charged 6... More

Don't do it. I don't typically write a rant - but I can't think of any better way to warn others to STAY AWAY! The wait staff was poorly trained at best. I spent half of my meal dropping my food in my lap because my fork was remove with my iceberg lettuce salad with a heavy and flavorless dressing.... More

There just isn't anything good to say... The service, the food, the atmosphere were consistently poor. The advertisements enticed us to try....but we won't be back. I have visited many Japanese steakhouses and this has really been one of the worst. There seating protocol needs work. We were sent to the bar, where there was no table service. If you... More

I've been to a lot of hibachi Japaneses places around the country. This was my least favorite. The chef barely looked up from the food he was preparing (very robotic). The food was mediocre. They put ground beef in the fried rice which tasted more like Hamburger Helper. The prices were on the high side ($35 for steak/shrimp), but it... More

Ron of Japan is always a solid choice for Japanese Steak Houses. The quality of the food from the Steak to the Lobster Tails is always superior to the other similar choices on the North Shore.
