“Should not have "Japanese Steakhouse" after it's name!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

An hour + wait, they don't have fried rice, and there is no show while they cook! Need I say more? Well, food was ok flavor wise, but not what we look for when we say we want a hibachi dinner.

“Worst Japanese resturant ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was the worst japanese resturant we jave ever been too! The decor is digusting, the staff was rude amd the food was awful! The steak tasted like rubber, there were mushrooms on everything amd they do t have fried rice. I've never been to a japanese hibachi resturant that didn't serve friend rice. The only positive was that it was cheap, but that's what youll get.

“As good as we had remembered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We have been to Go Jo's several times over the years. It was alwaya a great experience. This year we decided to go again for my son's birthday. We had reservations and they were a few minutes late getting us to a table, but it was worth the wait. The personnel were all very friendly and the place was packed, even on a Sunday evening. The restaurant is not what you would call real clean but the atmosphere is still good. The chef put on quite a show and we enjoyed the attention that the waitress paid to our table, even though she was very busy. Our glasses were never low. The salad and rice with yellow sauce was teriffic. I got the steak and shrimp and it was cooked to perfection with very generous portions. Everyone had a great time and we would come back again without hesitation. It is in Westport and there is a private parking lot. JB

“Not what we remembered”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Had reservations for 7 at 7. Not taken back to table until 7:30. Overbooked is an understatement.
We were sat at 2nd table on left. Very surprised the chairs did not give out while we were rushed eating. The table needs a deep cleaning as well!
Our cook didn't really even put on a show for us other than flipping a couple shrimps into people's mouths.
We were handed to go boxes and check before we even were served our ice cream.
Disappointed with visit and didn't get a chance to enjoy ourselves with the rushed atmosphere.

“Awesome Yellow sauce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

You can't beat the atmosphere and food! Have been many times and love it! You HAVE to try the yellow sauce on the rice!
