Our 12th or so visit to DA RU Ma was disappointing, not in terms of service, but in the taste of the food. The filet, poultry and shellfish appeared to be quality cuts/pieces, but the overall taste of our teppanyaki meal was "grease!" Perhaps our table's chef was heavy-handed on the oil (or butter?) this particularly evening; however, our previous visit to this restaurant disappointed as well and when this happens TWICE in consecutive visits, there "something wrong." The meal clearly is overpriced....this is not Benihana's, not by a longshot, so the pricing is out of line with the food quality and the overall restaurant itself. Clearly, the food quality has not been able to keep up with the upward speeding price points. Something new....there is now a substantial charge for the nominal portion of "birthday cake/ice cream" for kids. This was in addition to a very, very hefty, triple-digit tab. This will be our last visit to this restaurant for some time to come; for sure, we will not be celebrating any special occasion here should we return in 2014 or 2015.
