We came here with a party of 10, 5 adults and 5 kids. Our chef was really funny and entertaining. He was good with the kids as well. The food was good, nothing spectacular but we go more for the experience than the food anyways. The food IS good though. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure to keep... More

...but if you've already been here before and it's been less than a year from your last visit, than you can choose one of two dozen other fine steakhouses in the city to visit instead. Why? Oh it's not because the food is bad or the service lacks, it's just ....well, let me put it this way: ALL the chefs... More

A fun experience! I had the filet with fried rice. The flavor was amazing. The steak (cooked medium rare) was perfect. Of course the show was a great time!

Took our niece here for her birthday, and had a great time. Service was great, food was excellent, and our cook was a blast. A very entertaining evening, we're sure to go back.

We visited for my parents' anniversary dinner. We had to wait a while despite our reservation. I would highly recommend getting a reservation because of the set up. With 7, we had a table to ourselves. The chef was fun, and on point, but I don't think the routine chances much. I had the chicken and scallops. All of the... More

We go here a few times a year with family or friends. We have a great time always. Kids love the entertainment and food. Great drinks also. You must ask for Alberto when making your reservation. He is the most entertaining and energized chef there. We never tire of his show with cooking. We make sure to tip him every... More

We went to celebrate a birthday in our family. The atmosphere was great and very noisy at times because of the chefs cooking for other groups. Our waitress was very pleasant but she did make a mistake on our order but the one family member in our group who was suppose to get steak went ahead and ate the sesame... More

If you have not had the chance to catch one of these restaurants, you should definitely go. A cook will prepare food in front of you. - Our cook was funny, smart and cooked the dishes pretty well. - I liked the steak, shrimps and mahi mahi. You can choose between white rice and fried rice. I would go for... More
