Our son wanted to treat us to fine dining when we were visiting. Although a little pricey, Kumo's food was of the finest and very delectable. Each person got a different entree and everything on my plate and what I sample from the others was best quality in a Japanese cuisine and the atmosphere was great quality also. You will... More

Kumo is our favorite go to for Sushi and Hibachi. They also have a good selection of general entree's like teriyaki salmon or chicken. I love the bento box, I get a good selection of items. If you haven't had the experience of having your food cooked in front of you the Hibachi tables in the back are a must!... More

My friend and I drove 45 min to come and eat here for lunch. I absolutely love haibachi grills, and she has never been to one. Salad was great and fresh. We ordered some Nigari a few different kinds and the salmon was extra chewy it did not taste fresh. (I eat Salmon Nigari at least once a week, so... More

Kumo is a family favorite! We've been frequenting Kumo restaurant since they've opened and have always been extremely satisfied with the experience. The food is to die for, but the service, ambiance, and overall experience of every visit is what keeps us coming back!

"Hostesses" here need to learn the job description of a hostess. I ordered carry out. Walked in within the time frame they gave me and my food was already sitting there but there were no employees to be found. After standing at the register for 6 minutes (I timed it), hostess FINALLY comes up from the back and walks right... More

The atmosphere is about average. Lots of choices of foods but I wonder about the cleanliness. For example, they have a dessert area where they have buckets of ice cream and people are scooping it out on their own. I saw people with filthy hands reaching in to scoop out the ice cream. There are a lot of choices of... More

Kumo is our "go to" place for everything celebrated. The grill is a good show and the food is outstanding. If you want a quiet place to chat they also have booths. If you like big fresh shrimp, you will be pleased. If you want to really put the spotlight on a birthday victim....they bring out a whacky hat and... More
