Great Food and Atmosphere!!

This was my first time eating at a Japanese Steakhouse and the experience was just great. Our server was very friendly and prompt. The food was delicious and the portions were more than sufficient.

Great service, delicious food, nice atmosphere, courteous staff. We had two appetizers and one entree which was plenty to eat. We were especially attracted by the outside of the building at night. Our hotel recommended it, but we'd check trip advisor before hand. We were not disappointed,

This Hibachi grill is a favorite of my family. My wife, myself, and both are kids love to go here and have a fun time whenever we are there.. We have also for some reason gotten the same table/grill each time we have went. Some Chefs are much better than others but its fun no matter who you get and... More

Surprisingly, for a fun Japanese restaurant (tossing food bits into your mouth), the sushi was excellent too. We had previously visited Kitiaro and the food was so so. This time, it had improved greatly. Grandparents, parents, and children all found something good to eat here.

I like going to Kitaro because of the Bento Box I get on the restaurant side. The last four times we went there, they mess up what is suppose to be in this. I get different salad dressing and different soup every time I go and the sushi that is suppose to be in this, they make it totally different... More

have only been here once. The experience was fun. We did the Hibachi style, the cook was great, fun, and the food tasted very good. A little too much rice for me, but if you like rice, than you will love this place.

I have been here many times for sushi and the hibachi and it has always been great! However, for my 30th bday myself and maybe 15 or so friends went here and made a reservation for the dining area. When we arrived of course not everyone was there and the staff seemed very aggravated which I can understand. However once... More

The food just wasn't good. We gave been to dozens of Japanese fusion type restaurants and this one stands out as our least favorite.

The spicy tuna is great as well as the calamari and the St. Charles Roll! Best of all are the dirty martinis made by Brian.
