Great Food, But Service Is A Bit Slow

This was my first experience at a Hibachi style restaurant and overall I was satisfied. I'm typically not a fan of having to wait an extended period of time after being seated for my order to be taken but luckily we were surround by another family that kept us entertained. I would have to put... read more

Three couples and 2 children all want to have dinner & fun together on New Years Eve .... What do you do? Someone suggested Hibachi, someone suggested this town, this place, and another made reservations for 8. And we roll! This restaurant seems a house divided. The hostess table was home central for drama. Every servers complaint, every confused waitress,... More

For 2 visits in a row we have two rolls, an appetizer, and a steak dinner. The rolls came out before the appetizer, the soup aand salad came, the busboy promptly took the salad away. Then the appetizer came. Meanwhile we requested to have the salad replaced as it was removed almost as soon as it hit the table. We... More

After our second horrible service visit in a row to this restaurant we will not be back. Long wait times to place an order when there were maybe a dozen patrons in the place, soup, salad and rolls getting to table before appetizer, salad being removed from table by busboy moments after it was brought out, and meal never being...

I came wit a party of 13 to this restaurant and they did NOT disappoint. Even though we had such a large party, our service was incredibly fast and they got everything correct without fault. I was impressed. They brought out our delicious appetizers very quickly and our Chef came to our table just as fast. The service was what... More

I had: a drink (Ocean water), eel roll (with avocado and cucumber) and Geisha Special = $38.38 Food was cooked as ordered and it... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times. We usually get a table but we had our 2 yr old son and our neice and nephew so we thought it would be fun for them to sit at the grill. The cook was excellent and kept the kids entertained. The food is always great and good size portions. The... More
