Decent experience

It has been a long time since I enjoyed hibachi styled cuisine, mainly due to the fact I do not like sitting around a table full of strangers. It almost forces pointless banter among strangers, which I'd rather avoid. This place was a the radar of a friend of mine so I tagged along. She made the... read more

So, we have eaten here many, many times, mostly every year on my daughter's birthday. We went back on NYE and it was the worst experience we've ever had there. First, the waitress was very slow. It's really bad when you had your soup served and everyone is done with it, but we still don't have our drinks. The soup... More

We have japanese steak houses in cleveland ohio so I had come with those experiences in mind. This place was disappointing! I'm used to Chefs entertaining us the whole time; making volcanoes; doing the "egg roll"; shooting saki in our mouths; tossing veggies at our mouths to see who can catch one; cracking jokes and entertaining. Well our chef was... More

Had the most entertaining chef we have ever had at Arigatos. He was funny and did his best to entertain the table. Also the best chicken I have ever had at Arigatos. I do not know what it was cooked in but the best flavor and moist chicken I have ever had here. This was a Thursday night. and the... More

Arigato is very disappointing. We were visiting friends in town and they highly recommended this restaurant. We made a reservation on a Saturday night for 4 at 8 PM (we wanted earlier but nothing was available). We arrived on time, the place was completely packed, we waited until after 8:45 and were finally seated. I do not believe the management... More

Waitress wasn't trained. She got tied up with bar drinks while the rest of us waited on water. She completely messed up the orders of the other 4 people with us. Soup needs flavor. The Chef left the shrimp to cook to rubber while he tried to get the orders right. He had a salt shaker but there couldn't have... More

Omg I still cannot believe how incredibly rude the bartender was! Blows my mind! She is average height, short brown hair, heavy set.. Don't know her name or care to. No greeting, no smile, no personality... Just miserable looking and flat out rude. My friend ordered a strawberry daqueri and the everyone else drinking one had whipped cream and a... More

The bar tender was rude and challenged me because I came from the dining room and looked at the bar drink menu. She was obnoxious. The food was just okay and the interaction between the chef and us was almost nonexistent. I would not return to this place. Money best spent elsewhere. Our server apologized for the rude bar tender... More

Made a reservation -- they said come right over -- then arrived and it was a 30 minute wait. Sat down then waited another 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. Ordered water -- had not been delivered by the end of the first course (very salty soup) -- had to go to bartender to get water -- then when water... More
