We had a party of eight eat here. While the food was cooked perfectly, our chef acted like he HATED being there. Their white sauce is the worst I've ever tasted at a Japanese steakhouse. It had way too much vinegar. Those two issues are a big problem for me. The eb specials are awesome and a great deal. They do automatically add the 18% gratuity to EVERY bill from what I saw but I would have tipped that anyway even though the chef was quiet and just going through the motions. Bottom line for me is that I would only recommend this place if you don't care about the white sauce. I love it and probably won't return unless they change that.

Connected to two steakhouses that serve better kids menus and we were able to order from them for our 1.5 year old.

We would give this place another try on the Hibachi side, but as for general dining, we were less than pleased. Food was overcooked and not prepared like we had asked for it to be and waitress couldn't have cared less. Waste of money :(
