“Terrible, disgusting place..”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The place was filthy, to start. Service was terrible. Food was overpriced.

Showed up to busboy smoking outside under sign that was broken. Walked in to lobby to no host/hostess, garbage piled up behind host desk. Believe it or not, it only got worse from there.

Please do not go here.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

I should start by saying we didn't stay long enough to eat. When we arrived at 4:30pm, when the restaurant opened, they said they were still setting up. I told them I had made an online reservation and they informed that their online reservation system doesn't work even though I received a confirmation. One of the hostess's was falling asleep in the corner of the restaurant while we waited by the fish tank that didn't have any fish in it. One of the chef's walked through in a dirty hat and pants. After 15 minutes of waiting, we decided to leave. I will never go back again. f you live in the area, it is worth the drive to visit the Hibachi in Mayfield.

“Birthday Hibachi for my 5 year old”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

My 5 year old picked this for a birthday meal- at "the place that cooks your food on fire." 9 of us showed up and filled a hibachi table. The servers were very pleasant, the waitress particularly was so helpful to accommodate our young kiddos. Our chef was fun, but there were a few mishaps while cooking the food (he broke 3 eggs and also burned his hand) - so while he was nice, he may have been new. The food tasted good but the only sticking point was that to get the free birthday meal for the 5 yr old, we had to bring his birth certificate (which we did not know). But the waitress was helpful to explain that we could bring it back another time with the receipt and receive cash back, which we will have to do. It was a fun time, we all smelled of food when we left but the 5 yr old had only good things to say about the experience.
