“Really good food with a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Took a while to get seated, the group has to be complete to start a meal. The chef in charge of the table cook everything on a hot plate in front of the diner. After putting a show with the cooking utensils and ingredients, Food is served hot and good. No wonder the reservation is long. The only down side I can think of is, some of the smell of the food sticks to the hair and clothes, but its still worth the visit.

“Birthday dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Staff was very nice and our chef did a good job with our meal, also put on a great show. There were only 5 of us at our table and it ran very well. Only draw back was the waitor should have checked on our drinks more then he did. If you use the birthday print out from the e mail, make sure you print the right part. I didn't so I missed out on 30 dollars off my bill. We had a nice time and will go back for special occasions.

“Great meal, great server and chef - lots of fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is such a great restaurant - my wife and I we went with our 3 children and sat at a table with a local Orlando couple who were very nice. The tables can probably sit a maximum of 8 people in a U shape around the hot surface where the chef cooks. The staff are incredible and the food is really nice, fresh and tasty. Its a great experience and must do restaurant if you've never been before.

“Forget the show, come for the food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

All I can say is YUM!! From fillet to lemon chicken you'll love it all! The food is cooked in front of you on a hibachi grill, the chef puts on a little show while cooking your food; it's amusing for a little but it gets old.

“Good food.....Great Chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We sat at the table with Cyr (I think thats how you spell is name) but he was quite entertaining. He kept us involved. We sat at a table with a nice family from Kentucky and they were the sweetest. We had a good time. Oh try to make a reservation, the wait time was like 45 minutes for us.
