My wife, daughter, and parents went for an early dinner on Friday, and I was very happy with everything. We sat for a hibachi style dinner and enjoyed the show and the food. They even cooked my mother's meal on a separate grill due to her shrimp allergy. Due to my wife's love of this style of food, we've frequented... More

Just came home smelling like burned grease but what should one expect when food cooked right in front of you. Fumes coming from cooking coat the customers. Food quality generally good though my teriaki chicken had a slightly burned taste. Quantity was much more than one could eat. Chef personable and funny. Waitress was prompt but failed to deliver one... More

We have ate at Kabuki many times over the years and have had a great experience each time. The food & staff are great. The portions are generous, but you can have a shared dinner with your child with a low additional charge for the additional soup, salad, rice & vegetables. The dinners are absolutely worth their price.

We went on Easter Sunday for lunch and walked right in. Food was good and chef was entertaining. It is a little pricey but nice for a treat once in awhile.

loved this place. I will say make sure you make a reservation as we called on a Sunday afternoon and the hostess said we didn't need one, just come on it..well when we got there at 7, it was packed and we did have to wait 20 min or so, so definitely make one! All in all, from the soup,... More

We have been to Kabuki several times over the years. The chefs/food performers are always well-trained and entertaining. We have never been disappointed in the food and have certainly never gone away hungry. The portions are very generous and the food has always been cooked just right. It is a little on the pricey side. However, Kabuki is an excellent... More

What a treat! Food was prepared perfectly to the tune of a real magician chef. We loved everything about the dinner, although it was a bit pricey.
