The food literally made me gag. We ordered 3 meals and not one was fit for human consumption. The filet minion was overcooked and the sauce was terrible. The crab in the California rolls was old and fishy. The “salad” was a piece of iceberg...lettuce, one slice of tomato, and two cucumbers. I’m not sure there was even shrimp in the tempura. The tempura veggies were okay, so that’s what the four of us shared for $100.More

This is the third time I've eaten here. Prices have home up, but the quality remains. Generally I really enjoy eating here. It you've ever been to a really great Japanese place you'll likely be disappointed, however I think it's fabulous for where it is...and what it is trying to be. It has quality and variety. It's not pretentious or fancy. They're good at what they do. I haven't been disappointed yet.More

Ito put out a nice bento box for a reasonable price. The service was exceptionally nice. Surprising, but most welcome to have a place like this in Florence.

We recommend this place to all Military members in C.S. It's better than anything in C.S and a beautiful drive But it's Pricey for what it is. But what Japanese Steak house Isn't . Yes they do MILITARY DISCOUNT .

Stopped here after a recommendation from one of the locals & it certainly didn't disappoint! The sushi was delicious & our hibachi dinners were excellent!

We loved this place! This could be the best Japanese Steakhouse/Sushi restaurant we have ever eaten in. I had Goyza soup. It’s a dumpling soup with vegetables in it. Best Japanese soup of any type that I’ve had. For desert we had Mochi Ice Cream....It’s ice cream balls cut in half of different flavors with a soft shell outside. It’s ice cream that you can eat with your fingers. Our flavors were mango, green tea, and strawberry. My wife loved the mango the best. I liked the green tea the best. For my drink, they made me a Gin Cucumber Gimlet with my favorite gin - Bombay Sapphire. It’s one of my new favorite drinks. If you only go to one restaurant when you come into town to see the Royal Gorge Bridge, The Royal Gorge Train, or rafting, make it this one. You’ll be glad I sent you.More

Usually you get a fine meal (having eaten here before) at this restaurant. However, I was totally disappointed when I ordered and received the New Menu Item: Cod Fish Bento Box ($20.00). All Bento Box food items served were delicious except for what they called...Breaded Cod Fish (the main course). It was nothing more then 3 terrible fish sticks heavely breaded and slim so called cod. I took two bits of the fish sticks and couldn't eat anymore. I complained to the waiter and don't recall him offering any remedy (if he did I didn't hear due to a hearing loss). Also, he never offered any reduction in the cost of the meal. Don't order this meal.More

I would think twice about going to this restaurant, even though you may have heard and/or tasted the food and thought it was amazing. The owner's are rude and unprofessional to their young employees and the language barrier doesn't help the situation one bit. They...also don't pay a person for the 2 or 3 hours of training, which btw, is illegal. Back to the food! Yea, it may be amazing to eat, but think about what you are eating it on for a hot second! The owner's are all about "conserving water" so what they have the dishpit crew do is stack as many dirty dishes as possible on the dish rack until it barely fits in the dishwasher, run them through, and then have a towel on hand to wipe off whatever didn't come off during the wash cycle instead of only loading the dish rack with just enough dishes to fill it and allow them to be cleaned the right way. Then, they serve your "mouthwatering food" on those dishes, send their server out with your food with a smile and say "enjoy". I am writing this review from 1st hand experience, not from what other people are saying. What I am hoping for from this review is a change in how the owner's view their customers well being especially now during this pandemic, by making the necessary changes in both the dishpit and cooks area. Thank you for reading my review as I only speak the truth when it comes to fellow paying customers.More

We traveled from Canon City, when there weren't a-lot of options there, and we were not disappointed. The food was great, we had the Signature roll and angry dragon roll, signature was my favorite of the 2. My husband had hibachi steak and shrimp. I...loved the salad and onion soup. We ate so much we were miserable! service was great and we didn't have to wait long on our meal.More

The Japanese food is fabulous, Service is wonderful and the waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. This has become a favorite place to go even though it's a bit of a drive, but well worth it. Lunch here about every 2 weeks.
