Our family (3 kids under 10) went here one night for dinner. We had a Coupon deal for the place, and we love habachi.
We made a reservation for 7 for the live cooking side, and still had to wait about 20 minutes...that's extremely annoying to me!
Once seated I was a Little taken back as I watched other tables (for at least 15 minutes before our soup/salad and then chef came out) as they blared loud rap music and squired something into everyone's mouth! I kind of felt like it was a mix between restaurant and raunchy night club! I almost felt like it was inappropriate for my young children to be there
Our chef finally arrived, and immediately he was really friendly and funny, and extra kind to my kids. He was the most delightful part of the night. He was very entertaining, they do toss food at you in addition to the typical habachi routine. And that stuff the squirt in everyone mouth is apparently some type of alcohol. We passed...seemed kind of weird and raunchy to us, not to mention inappropriate in front of our kids to be promoting and pushing "partying". Then to my dismay the chef included my kids in the squirting with a nonalcoholic version....not something I really liked, but I didn't make an issue out of it since technically it was harmless.
On to the food....soup and salad were ok, not the best I've had, rice was really good and not heavy oil like other Japanese steakhouses I've been to, same for veggies they were good but the steak was very good! Ginger sauce was yummy, I didn't care for the white sauce. Overall I thought the size of the portions were smaller than other local Japanese steakhouses but prices were the same.
Would I go here again????? Maybe....my kids thought it was fun, they really liked the chef, and I'm sure they are oblivious to things I thought were a little inappropriate, but I'm not sure of I would take them back. I would consider another visit with friends or on a date night with my hubby if I found another coupon.
