“Great Restaurant, but don't bother to make reservations, they don't even use them.”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This is a great Japanese steak house with plenty of the usual entertainment that you have come to expect at a cook-in-front-of-you type eating establishment. The seating is common with about 12 people at a full table/cooking station. No matter how many times I make a reservation, it never holds up when you get to the restaurant. So, forget going here for holidays, especially Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, you won't get in unless you camp on their doorstep. There are only 4 tables/cooking stations, so if you are not one of the first, then you will be waiting at least 45 minutes to be seated. the only part of the service that is questionable is when you arrive to be seated. The hostess does not speak very good English and their reservation system is not a system at all.

On the other hand, this is a great place to go at the last minute. There are usually open tables on regular week nights, including Friday. They will serve customers up until 9P EST. Great place for families too!

“The chef wowed us!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The chef cooked in front of us at our table. He had a great personality and could do some amazing tricks with his tools. We went in close to closing time and were the last couple there so it was quiet but according to the chef the place is jam packed around dinner time. Excellent time! A little over priced but I can understand why and the food was delicious so no real complaints.

“Very entertaining watching your meal cook”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

The cook will entertain you as he cooks your meal in front of you on a hot plate. tossing up whole eggs, settling fire to the oil and creating an onion volcano. Very enjoyable meal if you like stir fry cooking. Steak, shrimp and scallops came out best as chicken seemed to absorb too much of the salt.

“Tasty...”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This restaurant was a good but not great Hibachi style restaurant. The service was good, the food was tasty, but the quality of the meat wasn't what I would expect for the cost. We had a good time and left full, but the Chef wasn't as charasmatic as some of the Hibachi restaurants I have visited. I would call it good... but not great.
