“Consistently great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Kamakura has been our go-to restaurant for celebrating special occasions for the past many years. Our most recent experience, celebrating our daughter's birthday, was excellent, just like all of the prior visits. The service was great, the teppan chef is entertaining and everyone enjoyed their delicious dinner.

“Fun Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We went last weekend for a seating at the habachi table. It was a lot of fun. The chef was young but showed good skill and showmanship. The food was well seasoned and delicious. One woman complained that the steak was too well done and the chef immediately cooked her a new one. Our only complaint was that the seating was actually seated 30 minutes after the reservation, but the bar tender was personable and gave my wife a sample of a drink on the house while we waited.
