Two for the show

We decided late in the day to eat there. I like the Japanese steak house experience, both the food and the show. The precise nature of the show depends on which chef performs, but they are all very good at it, from what I observed around us. We were seated in a reasonable time, given that the... read more

We enjoyed the atmosphere and food. But most importantly, we had a terrific server. She was great with explaining the choices and menu. it was too crowded to eat at the hibachi side but we enjoyed the meal just the same.

I've been to Izakaya three times. The first time was only drinks and it was fine except the waiter asked us several times if we wanted another. We got the distinct impression we weren't drinking fast enough for them. The second time both my friend and I threw up the next morning after having sushi. It was most definitely NOT... More

The service was excellent and selection of food was amazing. We had a party of 7 and had a great experience, we kept the staff busy with our continuous drink orders and without missing a beat they kept up. The sushi selection was great and hibachi was excellent. The ambiance was welcoming and whole meal was worth every penny. I'd... More

We arrived with 35 people all at once and attacked the bar. The crew at the bar and manager handled it well and got everyone a cocktail or drink very quickly. We went to 2 hibachi tables and with 4 outstanding cooks had a great team building experience and a great time of laughs and food. This is a typical... More

Average in every way. Chicken too sauced. Rice is okay. Service is nice. Shrimp a bit mealy. Much better options for this kind of place.

We decided to head back to Izakaya for lunch today! Anytime we have a weekday off, we make sure and go for lunch due to the sushi special. They have 2 rolls for $9.95 or 3 rolls for $12.95! The servers are always nice, seating is quick, and the food is awesome! I was in the mood for some fried... More
