This is one of those places that you go back to despite the service. We've been here several times (all with coupons) and love the food, but we always feel like the host and/or owners are rude. The kids love watching the food get cooked in front of them and the chefs do a nice job. sometimes the "show" is... More

We had dinner at the Hibachi last night and really enjoyed both the food and the Hibachi chef. He was very funny and entertaining as he cooked our dinner right in front of us. We will be back.

If you are using more than one groupon, be sure to make seperate reservations. Food was decent but owner seemed rude.

We've been to several Japanese steakhouses and always seem to enjoy ourselves. We had reservations at the grille but we were late and they had to give up our table to "start the show" so we had to sit at the bar for 45 minutes. We didn't mind the wait as we were getting together with family and catching up.... More

We have lived in Stillwater now for 16 years. Previous Chicago area. Our friends came to visit us from Appleton WI a couple of years ago and like Sushi so we looked up restaurants online and Murasaki came up and was close. Very good the first time, second time, and just recently third time. Staff very very friendly and such... More

First off I was wedged into a corner and could barely move so the comfort factor fails. Also the chef was about as interesting as watching a blank tv screen. The food was average at best and the staff are pretty rude. If you use a Groupon make sure they add it to the check because they tried not to... More

A friend gave us a Groupon that they couldn't use because it was expiring soon. We'd been to this restaurant several times before (a few years ago) and didn't really like it, but figured we'd give it another try. We observed the owner/hostess being rude and condescending to other customers, including rolling her eyes and acting in a completely unprofessional... More

I had a very nice dinner last evening (Monday) at Murasaki with my daughter who loves sushi and sashimi. She eats there quite often and I go once every few months. The service was very good and the food was served in no time. It was not at all crowded though. I think our server was fairly new and inexperienced... More

The food is back to first rate with the new sushi chef for the past half year or so. The customer service has improved, and this is now a first rate dining experience. The new rolls and custom rolls are excellent, well worth the try. The sushi is always fresh and well-prepared. The Hibachi/Tempanyaki is good here, the show could... More

My friends and I wanted to get some dinner on a Monday night. According Murasaki's website they opened at 5:00 on Monday's. Arrived at the restaurant and the sign also read open at 5:00, but the restaurant was dark. After several phone calls a woman finally answered and told me rudely "We don't open today." Gee, Thanks for nothing.
