Environment is really starting to look run down. The place needs a good cleaning, painting and facelift. The chairs were disgusting. I am thankful I didn't see it before I sat down. The food was average, somewhere from ok to good. Our table-side chef served us our rice and veggies before the appetizer and way before the main course meat. The chef at the next hibachi did it in the right order. The "show" was fun, as usual. Yes, the same thing each time, but kids like it. Cosmo was totally mediocre. We went with a coupon, but still ended up paying $80 for 3 (1 kid and 2 drinks), so totally not a $100+ meal (without coupon).

The food was pretty good (though the chicken was overcooked) and the chef's "show" was identical to every other visit, but still a lot of fun.

The problem was it was Father's Day. Our table had two parties each with Groupon certificates. The rotten part was the waitress would only accept one coupon and not the other! One certificate had no restrictions, while the other listed a couple of numeric dates in the fine print. I knew we had another groupon, without the date restrictions, about 5 minutes away at home, but the waitress said they weren't going make adjustments to a paid bill if I brought back a coupon. That stringency made the meal $40 more expensive than we budgeted for.

It was our fault we had the wrong coupon, but the restaurant should have honored the one we could have produced only a short time later. There were several tables with coupons and they each went through the same "will they or won't they accept it" wait, simply because the management had offered so many coupons or certificates, all with different restrictions, over the last year.

We went for a Sunday Lunch - had a Domo Dollars gift coupon which wasn't available for use on the lunch menu so we ordered off the dinner menu. Cost for 2 was $72.00 which included tax and 20% tip w/only soda to drink - no alcohol. While prices were higher so was the larger size of the portions. Ended up taking some home for another meal. The chef cooked at our hibatchi table and was very entertaining - we shared the table with another couple with a younger child - he really enjoyed the chef's antics. Won't tell you what they were so as not to be a spolier. Food was delicious and as fresh as could be. The calamari was fantastic, but so was the chicken and shrimp. Ordered a Portobello Mushroom on the side - came w/a huge slab of garlic topping - was tasty. Dinner came with both soup and salad. Will definately return.

This is a local resturant for us. We have enjoyed the food and the entertainment of the grill server, however, this time I was so distracted by how grungy everything looked - grubby and run down. We won't be going back soon...

I have been going to this restaurant for many years. It used to be my favorite. It is Hibachi-style Japanese which still has fire at the table. The chefs are entertaining and the food is always good.

The restaurant is becoming run down and really needs a makeover. However, the big problem is the ventilation. We make sure to leave our coats in the car and only choose clothes that can immediately go to the cleaners or get washed. The ventilation is so poor, that we almost always get headaches from visiting.

I like this restaurant and would like to keep going, but until they fix their ventilation, I think we will be forced to go to Benihana’s for our Hibachi.
