Food is always good.... But the front room is always cold and the bar stuck in a narrow corner. They need an airlock.

Having eaten at Watami many times, I finally felt compelled to write a review. The service is consistently bad, and on a few occasions it has been horrible. We have experienced drinks spilled all over the table and guests only to be partially wiped aside with little apology or acknowledgement, repeated requests for something such as a drink refill, a...

Came here for a client dinner after a long afternoon of meetings. It was a nice setup around the grill to be able to continue our conversations. The chef was entertaining and the food was delicious. We all tried hibachi, most frequently ordered was steak and shrimp. yummo! Great place for work, friends, family - you name it!

Food is GREAT! Service is wonderful! Prices are a little high but for a hibachi and service not outrages. We go here we want a romantic date night or have out of town guest.

I love sushi, but was rather let down by most of the sushi here. The best roll in my opinion was the green dragon, but I didn't like the price. I didn't try the other food, but my friend said it was good. Also, the waitress wasn't very fluent in English which was a little frustrating as I tried to... More

We have eaten at several JAPANESE places and this is one of the top two! The chef was wonderful and very entertaining but the food was out of this world! We took two of our daughters with their kids (ages one to seven) and everyone from the youngest grand kid to grandpa had a great time and more good food... More

the negative ignorant reviews posted on watami shows that if all you do is eat at one or two places in town never wandering further than the city limits, then it's easy to complain about limited choices or size but if you don't expand your taste buds by eating elsewhere or even educate yourself about the food, that doesn't make...

Our family go-to choice for birthdays and anniversary. Admittedly a bit pricy, so it is more of a special occasion place for us. Lots of fun at the hibachi table, but there is also table service for kitchen items. We usually have the steak and shrimp. I am not a sushi expert but see lots of people there with sushi... More

I've gone to this place quite a few times. I had a party of 7, of which 2 were teenagers and 3 kids. We were celebrating 2 birthdays. The cook was very unskilled, dropping everything. Little to no show. Other cooks were funny and vibrant. This was a huge let down, I mean the big price pays for a show.... More

I was disappointed about this restraunt Food was tasty but not very big servings. I don't like sushi so I had chicken, wasn't much choice on ways to have chicken. Atmosphere was good though, quiet and lights dim.
