Kabuto's has a nice atmosphere. It's both casual and formal, depending on the guests. There is shared table seating if you have under 8 guests, however, it's not intrusive. The chefs are well trained and entertaining, which is a plus for all ages. The food is very good, however, there's a significant up-charge price difference on the weekends (Fri, Sat... More

Relatively prompt seating and friendly service from the wait staff. I love the fact that you get to watch your meal being cooked. We've been there with children and without. The chefs make it very entertaining when the children are with us by designing faces and other designs in the food while it is cooking. You are never rushed while... More

Namely, there's rarely a wait so you're typically seated fairly quickly. Them other perk, at least for me, is the fact that it's within a stone's throw away from my home my! Other thwn that, it's mediocre at best but not a place you should skip altogether necessarily.

Called one week ahead for a 1:30 pm reservation on Sunday Mother's day the 12th of May. Arrived around 1:15 and checked in. Actually got our seating for 6 of us close to 2 pm which wasn't bad considering there were people waiting in the parking lot for their turn. All in all around $20-$25 per person for filet mignon...

We opted to eat in the Sushi Bar area. There was a 30 to 45 min. waiting in the main restaurant. We heard drumming, etc. coming from there but the Sushi Bar area was quieter and service was fast. The waitress was friendly. Would eat here again when we're in Goodlettsville, TN

This restaurant has continuously given us excellent service and food for ten years or more. The food is always excellent and the service is first rate. The highly trained chefs are the best we have seen anywhere. The fact we have never received a bad meal there is no surprise. You see exactly what you are getting from the beginning... More

The routine show of cooking hibachi is in full display here. If you like this style food, as well as sushi, you would not be disappointed in this restaurant. We go on special occasions and always like it.

It was our first experience to visit a Japanese Steak House. We found the food different and tasty and the most interesting was the way the chef cook the food in front of you by giving the details.

We have enjoyed the hibachi experience many times and our visit here was no exception. We got there a bit after the dinner hour and the place was not very busy. We were seated quickly and the waitress took our drink order and said we'd wait a few minutes to see if anyone else would join us. We asked if... More

But never have we had sushi as badly as this place. First, we were sitting close to the... More
