These places are consistently good and reasonably priced. And mostly healthy from the food choice perspective. But be prepared to wait, walk-ins might wait up to 1/2 hour on any given day.

We typically go here because our daughters love the show the cooks put on. This year Nov. 2014 the service was very bad. We always feel like sardine #9 in a 10 count can. There is no personalization anymore. You show up and get placed with strangers, period. No chance they will light the grill unless you have someone you've... More

We went with friends and enjoyed the experience. The prices are a little high for families with children. Mainly for adults. The chefs are very skilled and have a good sense of humor. Hours are different, they are closed for part of the day. Very convenient location. Close to all the major shopping and major freeways.

The one constant in our experiences, is the YUMMY food!! I wish I could say the same about... More

This place is really always amazing. The food prepared before your eyes never fails to delight. The chef seems to always have a great sense of humour and a real knack for entertainment. I would have given a higher rating but we ended up waiting for a long time to be seated. There were about 15 of us and we... More

This is my go to restaurant. Filet Mignon(my steak of choice) is always cooked the way I liked, the chicken fried rice is a hit and miss, honestly depends on the cook. Servers are polite and courteous 90% of the time, but they could work on it a bit. But I still visit here 2-3 times a month, and will... More
