Yamato is my favorite Japanese steak house for many reasons. Their sushi is my teenage son's favorite, and I love everything from the soup to salad to entrees. My very favorite on the menu is the Matsuri (filet mignon and shrimp). I have been there many times and usually order this and it is consistently excellent food. It's not that... More

Super hot in lobby, hostess kind of snippy vs polite, entire place needs serious renovation, dirty carpet, food good, sticky counters and floors. Expensive for an old restaurant.

I love habachi, so yes, I am biased. But their food was great (I've been to habachi places where I was disappointed). Service was great, enough but not too many check ins, refills without asking and friendly service.

We went to Yamato to celebrate out grandaughters birthday. My first impression from the outside was questionable-it is definitely in need of some paint or sprucing up-the building is in disrepair! Once inside and seated, I immediately noticed our "table/counter" was sticky. It did not feel clean! The food was very good and the service ok. Went to the ladies... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Yamato. We arrived when they opened at 4:30 and were greeted and seated immediately. I ordered the scallops and shrimp combo and they were glad to give me extra veggies instead of the fried white rice. (I usually eat brown rice but did get a taste of others rice and it was good). The scallops... More

I remember the day when chopsticks came standard and three different sauces were served. I've also noticed that the portions are not near what they were in the past but the price has increased. I may go back a few more times but when the tab is $125 + tip for 3, I would assume that chopsticks would be standard....... More

Overcrowded, no waiting area, poor service, tables on top of each other like a Vegas gambling area to pack in as many cattle as possible. Besides waiting an hour past our reservation time to get seated with people standing packed around the dingy sticky bar with only one bartender for the bar and the restaurant trying to serve the people...

Hibachi steak is real good, the cooker gives you a nice entertaining time while he cooks in front of you

We popped in here for dinner because it was very close to our hotel and we thought our 10 year old granddaughter would enjoy the show of hibachi. My husband and I needed to satisfy my 80 year old parents and my vegan granddaughter. This was no easy feat to please everyone. We did not have a reservation and we... More
