Quick dinner with friends

We enjoyed our dinner at Yamato. We arrived when they opened at 4:30 and were greeted and seated immediately. I ordered the scallops and shrimp combo and they were glad to give me extra veggies instead of the fried white rice. (I usually eat brown rice but did get a taste of others rice and it was... read more

I remember the day when chopsticks came standard and three different sauces were served. I've also noticed that the portions are not near what they were in the past but the price has increased. I may go back a few more times but when the tab is $125 + tip for 3, I would assume that chopsticks would be standard....... More

Overcrowded, no waiting area, poor service, tables on top of each other like a Vegas gambling area to pack in as many cattle as possible. Besides waiting an hour past our reservation time to get seated with people standing packed around the dingy sticky bar with only one bartender for the bar and the restaurant trying to serve the people...

Hibachi steak is real good, the cooker gives you a nice entertaining time while he cooks in front of you

We popped in here for dinner because it was very close to our hotel and we thought our 10 year old granddaughter would enjoy the show of hibachi. My husband and I needed to satisfy my 80 year old parents and my vegan granddaughter. This was no easy feat to please everyone. We did not have a reservation and we... More

The food here is always amazing and very well flavored. I Have been to multiple other hibachi restaurants in the Richmond area and none compared to Yamoto. The performance of the chefs is nothing over-the-top and standard hibachi style.

My husband and I love this place but to nights visit was very disappointing. Not only was the service not up to par but there was no heat and we had to stay bundled up in our coats throughout dinner.

You get what you pay for and more. This is excellent value for money, fun and entertaining. Customers sit around a large flat indoor BBQ and the food is fried in front in front of you. First the chef gives a flamoyant, clinking and dextrous cutlery display by throwing it around and catching it (sometimes in his top pocket). Then... More
