    Very disappointed in server I didn't feel he was friendly. I asked him what on the menu qualified as a "buy one entrée get one 25% off) he showed us on the adult menu, but never told us it also qualified on children's menu. I ordered the blackened ahi & my husband ordered the new Yorker. My daughter ordered a kid Terriyaki. So when the bill came of course 25% was taken off the child's meal. Really? Had the waiter mentioned that to us, I would have ordered something else within my budget. As for the gratuity. First of all as of January 2014 automatic gratuity charges should not appear on your bill. We were a party of 6 and charged $27.32 for gratuity?! The chef was ok, but I didn't feel the server deserved the suggested tip amount.

    Chomp is always a go-to for good sushi. This was my first visit in which I strayed from the sushi menu and tried something new - I was not disappointed! I tried the Robata Yaki skewers of bacon wrapped scallops served over sauteed asparagus and mushrooms and it was bursting with flavor. We had 3 different servers throughout our meal and each of them was very friendly and attentive.

    Ive been coming here for 10 years. I recently went again and after order 3-specialty rolls, i recieved them and noticed that there were only 5 cut rolls on each order!!! all my precvious visits have anywhere from 8-10 cut rolls per order. If you look at the pictures in the menu you can see 8-10 rolls. False advertising. They charge you the same if not more for the rolls and now you get less. A dissapointment after all the years of coming here. After speaking to the Manager about the issue he did nothing to fix the issue or anything. dissapointed.

    I used to like coming to chomp for the great food that was prepared in front of me that includes some interaction with the chef. Well, it may have been due to the fact that the other half of the table (not related to us) didn't show up, but the chef that cooked our food wanted to finish the evening as soon as he got there. The chef did the onion volcano for us, but it was clear that every other chef was having much more interaction with their customers which included tossing rice into people's mouths and some other stuff. Not only that, but they gotten rid of one of the items that I had looked forward to having there: the parmesan rice cake. For the price they were asking for, I would say Chomp is no longer justified.

    We made reservations for Father's Day, since we had never been there we wanted to be sure that we had a chance to sit at the Teppan Grill, which everyone had recommended. Once we sat down, we were greeted by our friendly waiter, Tyriesi (Sorry if I misspelled his name), who helped us along in the world of Teppan Grill and food. He was especially helpful in making certain that the chef and staff were aware of a fish allergy. The kids (10 & 5) were entertained by not only the chef's antics, but our waiter was very helpful in making sure that they were seen as people and took into consideration their wants (my little one doesn't like his food touching other foods). Overall it was an awesome experience!

    The variety of sushi rolls was incredible. The sushi was fresh and the quality of all of the ingredients was excellent. For the price, it is well worth going. Everyone was friendly and the service was quick. We are planning to try the all you can sushi on Thursday nights. Looks to be a wide selection for only $23.00. Although we sat in a booth, the Teppan Yakki looked to be good and entertaining. We will be back.

    Had a gift card so went down after work. With 2 little kids, they music is pretty bumpin' and loud. Seems like more of a place to hang with your college buddies. Kind of like the love child of a Benihana's and a dance club. Prices seem to be mostly high with various specials going on each day to make up for it. Prepared to overpay if you just wander in without planning ahead. Portions are neither large and nor tiny. Just average. Flavor is decent. Went during happy hour and got potstickers (about 5 for about 5.95), bbq beef bowl, spicy tuna crunch roll, shrimp crunch roll, california roll and a soda for a little under 40$. Didn't leave too hungry but not too full either.

    Went for my hubby's birthday and brought our little one (8yrs). Fun was had by all they were very entertaining at the Teppan grill. At the end They brought out a little sundae and sang Happy Birthday. BUT dinner for 3 with a few sushi apps and minimal cocktails was over $125 before tip. We ended up taking leftovers home (large portions) SO my advise is come hungry and be prepared to part with a Benjamin and a few Jacksons.

    My family and friends frequent Chop regularly. I believe there has been a recent management change and it shows. The service we received was excellent. Reservations were made before our visit and we were seated right on time. Our server John was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The salad and specialty rolls were yummy! Can't wait to go back for another dinner and their famous Champagne Sunday brunch.

    We were there celebrating my birthday, 12 of us and we ordered two different boats and aside from being beautiful they were delicious especially that Ninja boat that was filled with about 7 different rolls. We had a small issue with the chicken in the fried rice but they were happy to make us another and comp'd it. I would definitely go again. The tepan grill area looked really good and was full of energy. I definitely wan to try that next time.

    My husband and I were looking for a tasty restaurant since we didn't feel like cooking. I booked the reservation from OpenTable and upon arrival, we're excited to find out it was half off sushi and roll and sake! It was great. Our server, Tycie, was great and attentive. He was super friendly with us and our five year old. He brought her extra crayons because he thought she dropped hers on the floor. How sweet! Definitely going back on another Wednesday. Try it out!
