  • "I couldn't make the reservation with Arigatos directly - I'll start using Open Table from now on!!!!"

  • "Went with my date and despite having reservations we didn't get seated until an hour after the reserved time. It took another 30 minutes before we ever got our soup and salad. We were told "the chef would be out any minute now." Finally after not getting a drink refill, and having waited an hour and a half after having reservations we asked to speak to a manager. Another 5-10 minutes passed and nobody in site we walked up to the bar,(to pay our tab for a drink we purchased while waiting to be seated) and that even became a choir. Holding my card in my hand the bartender made eye contact and spoke, then he turned and walked away. I waited another 2-4 min just to watch him walk to the back. I left cash on the bar and walked out."

  • "I had reservation made and did not get a table till one hour later. After I got to my table , I had to wait for 1 1/2 hour for the chef to start cooking for our table. Food was ok. I expected more from this restaurant. I would return, but not for any special occasion that I try to plan."

  • "First of all, our reservation was for 9:30 and we weren't sat till 10:30. People without reservations were coming in and getting sat before us because they had more people. Then our chef didn't get to our table till 11:30. The food was good and we actually had a great time with the people we sat with. I hadn't been to Arigato's in 10 years and used to really love it. The hosting staff(mainly young man) did a terrible job trying to appease us. When asked, what is going on? They just kept saying, "We will be seating you soon." Well, not soon enough. If it wasn't for the fact that we were starving and knew how hard it would be to get into another restaurant, We would have left. We were truly let down."

  • "I realize it was Valentine's Day however, it was get-them-in get-them-out the service was too rushed and in turning over tables too. Food was more assembly lines everything cooked one way which was steak very well done and the chicken was burnt. I would not recommend because there are too many other Hibachi restaurants available with better food quality and dining atmosphere."

  • "I see this as a Japanese restaurant fit for families and introducing kids to this type of cooking. Not impressed and restaurant has not taken the time to update their GPS location. Several people including us were lost and arrived late. Staff is nice but need a shot of enthusiasm."

  • "So enjoyed the great shrimp flambe at our neighborhood favorite here in Carrollwood. Service is always great - a tad quiet on a Sunday night - but the yum yum and goody goody still rock - and it was a hearty end to our holiday season."

  • "Arigato has been our "special occasion" choice for awhile. This new location though close by, has a decor update that is somewhat impersonal -almost clinical. However the crowds make up for it- the food is really good- shrimp flambe is my favorite- while my husband picks the emperor combos- the chefs are entertaining and enthusiastic. We were home after being away for a year- and this was great for celebrating a quiet homecoming. Love the sauces -yum yum and goody goody- always!"
