Friendly staff - okay food

First time visit to this hibachi restaurant. The staff was friendly and they tried to make it as fun of an experience as possible. Food was fine, but I thought pricey for the quality of the food.

It was just average for us. Spicy tuna roll good. Spider roll not as good as other places, didn't like ocean roll. Lobster balls ok. The Mai tai was good. The service was pleasant and efficient. There was no big wow to the night!

This is my favorite sushi bar in the Cleveland area. It's not crowded or expensive like Sushi Rock, it's not sketchy like a couple of other sushi places, it's quiet and kinda small and can be quite romantic. They also have a full menu of Chinese food. The hibachi side of the restaurant is separate from the sushi side, which... More

They have 1/2 price hibachi from 5pm to 7pm? on Tuesdays and it's absolutely amazing! You get a salad, soup, and grilled shrimp with your meal. The service was good, and Ray was cooking for us, and he's a lot of fun :) I would definitely go back again!!

I went there for dinner one night for a take out order. While my order was being made I sat at the bar for a drink. The place was not impressive but I figured I'd give it a try. The sushi cooks were. Slow and didn't seem groomed to well. My drink came and I waited about a half an... More

I first ate at Otani's about 20 years ago. I had a great meal and have been coming back several times a year since then. I can say food and service are excellent. Hibachi is awesome and despite years of eating here they still manage to come up with some new tricks to keep the meal entertaining. We had Ray... More

My sisters and cousins enjoy trying different restaurant locations for our monthly dinners. Otani's was our pick for the month of May. We were in the hibachi section and each of us had the Otani Special which included a combination of soup, salad and shrimp, chicken. Salad & dressing was great. Our chef was fun and entertaining cooking and serving... More

Located in a plaza with several retail stores, Otani's provides prompt service and an excellent hibachi room. We arrived late in the afternoon and were quickly ushered to a table. We ordered the Otani Special which features a combination of soup, salad and shrimp, chicken and steak. The salad dressing was outstanding--we wish we could have purchased some to take... More
