“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is your typical Japanese Steakhouse....fun show for kids and the food is fantastic. It can be a little pricey though.

“Decent stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We have tried Osaka twice for dinner, both times doing the Hibachi. The food is good and the prices are good but nothing outstanding. The resteraunt was clean both times and not too busy. The sushi bar isnt spectacular but again not horrible, the service in here is very good and we have never seen it too busy. Good to head out for a family dinner for a decent price but dont expect to have your socks knocked off. We will be back.

“Terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

this was the by far the worst experiance of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!! i will never go back ever again!

the most rude and by far the least entertaining cooks and waitresses i have ever witnessed.

the service sucked.. the waitress literally knocked my arm off the table when she went to put my sushi down on the table

the sushi was old.. and not to mention to bear their cheap ways they stuffed it with the orange sprinkles they usually only put on top

the hibachi chef was picking out the food from the grease trap and actually serving it to the table. against regulations! i think so! my husband was picking out burnt black out of his entire meal.

like i had mentioned before, my husband ordered hibachi, in which he was not impressed. the food was cold by the time he went to eat it(chicken and shrimp). and to add the size and quality of the food was less then satisfactory.

we were sitting by a family and by the looks on their face they were not impressed either they all had hibachi and the waitress tried to take away a poor little girls bowl of soup away from her, when she was not near finished, this little girl had to cling on to dear life to keep eating her bowl.

by the end of the visit, noone asked us how the meal was nor did they pay any attention to us. no customer service what so ever.

we left starving and very very enraged how a place like this can actually stay open. we will never go back there.. ever.. and i will be telling anyone who wants good food not even to consider this place.

“Good service and good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

My wife and I attended dinner and we were sat late at a table that had two other couples. They were just finishing their soup and salad and we had to hurry up and order. We ordered sushi and meals from the hibachi. We received our salads and soup quickly and caught up to the other couples. Our sushi was delivered very quickly too. I read some other reviews that stated that the service was slow and not attentive. We never had to ask for refills as the staff kept our drinks topped off.

The sushi was good but we didn't order anything special (Alaska Roll and Spicy Tuna). The meals were good. I ordered the Chicken and Scallops and my wife ordered the Steak and Shrimp. We cleared our plates and were stuffed. We will definitely go back.

“Horrible Service(Take Out), Rude Host, and Mediocre Sushi - Go to Wegman's instead”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Food was mediocre at best. Save your money and head to Wegmans. Actual prices are about 15% more than those listed on their website. Unbelievably rude management and servers. I generally don't have high standards of american Japanese restaurants, but this place is well below those standards. Please be careful when dining out or in with Osaka!
