Cost is still a little high, but its worth the experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMProblemServer kept offering soda to the two teenagers at the table. She said you need more soda, as if there were free refills. After serving them 3 sodas each, she brings a receipt with 6 sodas for two people. They both had a glass full of soda sitting on the table when we left the restaurant.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience.First time there and I was not disappointed. It lived up to everything that people say it is. The food was great. The chef was very entertaining.

Opentable was a great find, i made the reservation at 4am, I called the next day to confirm the reservation and i was in the system.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSemiSweet ExperienceOverall I had a good time. I only have two complaints, one was that the food was under seasoned. I had the mango shrimp and my date had the teriyaki chicken, although the vegetables served as an appetizer were great (the zucchini and onions). My other complaint is one that I guess I up to chance, but the other couples at the table seemed very dry in humor. Our chef was great and very funny, and me and my date were laughing and playing along, but the others were rather quiet.
When I was done eating I got a doggy bag and the lady accidentally dropped my shrimp and she went back and had some made for me which was incredibly sweet!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the fact that my foodI love the fact that my food is being cooked in front of me and the chef is doing tricks with the food.

I gotta say the best cook is a Mexican guy named romeo he is so entertaining and he enjoys it too. I recommend this place to anyone for a casual day or even better for an occasion, like we always go for our anniversary.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for Family & FriendsI love this place, the atmosphere, the service, the food. It has become the place where I entertain my family & friends who come to visit New York. I have always had a pleasant experience here & will continue to come back. The Hibachi Table is my favorite because of the menu choices & the entertainment. There is always something for everyone to enjoy3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLate night reservationWent there at the end of the night and got a reservation at the last listed seating. Had to wait several minutes to be seated as they seemed to be trying to close up part of the place. Was finally seated along with a few others. Another party came in after and were steated at another table. Sushi chef had already cleaned up so no sushi was available. NOT GOOD business practice. One lead server was anxious to get all of us to order and began rushing the rest of the staff to hurry us all along. NOT GOOD business practice again.
Chef showed up. Sub par skills/show. Excellent cook. Food tasted good. Not a stellar job overall for the restaurant. If they are open for late reservations then I expect full service and a relaxed pace.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
