4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great drinks, great sushi, excellent bar atmosphere. Busy on Friday and Saturday nights so plan to be patient and have a drink. The restaurant is beautiful.

“Don't have the seafood tempura”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Got really sick on the seafood tempura. It's a fun place. Not a huge bargain, but I didn't have to pay either time.

“great place for a birthday party for a teenager”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

If you want a fun experience with good food for a party of six or more.. here is the place. The hibachi choices are standard fare but they offer an upgrade to filet mignon on the steak slelctions. the banter with the hibachi chef is outstanding and the kids love it. they even have the Japanese soda and fried green tea ice cream. Drink prices are reasonable for the adults and the saki selction is very good.
beyond the attention to birthday boy during the meal, at dessert time out comes the gong...
the dining area and rest rooms are very clean...
get reservations because the hibachi area gets very busy after 6pm

“Refused to serve us dessert so they can seat the next party.....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I went here for habachi with 5 friends to celebrate a birthday. We had reservations and they sat us right away. After serving us the soup and salad they informed us that they were short on chefs and we would have to wait. We waited about 20 minutes. While we waited the waitress served us drinks and spilled 2 of the 4 drinks. The drinks were in martini shakers so not much was lost but she didn't offer to get us another one. She just poured what was left of the drinks and gave them to us. Eventually the chef came and reviewed the orders. Everything sounded right and we enjoyed the entertainment. After he served everyone a friend realized that they never brought out (and cooked) her salmon. She informed the chef and they cooked it out back and brought it to her.

After the meal they quickly gave us the check. We paid it without thinking then realized we wanted dessert. They REFUSED to serve us dessert because they had another party waiting for our seats. Excuse me but they made us WAIT for a chef, it was not our fault we ran over the "allotted" time for hibachi. Two of my friends still had over half of scorpion bowl to finish when the manager came over and said if we wanted dessert we needed to go to the bar. It was a busy Sat night and we would be lucky to get 2 seats at the bar nevermind 6. We left feeling cheated by the horrible customer service!!!!

“Good food rude people”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Food is not bad what you would expect from hibachi style fresh and hot. The people here are so rude from owner/manager to hostess and it trickles down from there. Not a pleasant dining experience after terrible welcome we should have left in hindsight. Our server was pleasant and apologized for the people at door but it happens often she said.
