    My family loves when we come to Fujiyama's. My 7 year old twins love dining here cause of the show the cooks put on, this is definitely a very family friendly restaurant. We have dined at Fujiyama's a handful of times and every time the food has been amazing, we haven't had a bad time there yet.

    We made a reservation for 6pm after we were seated and ordered our meals the chef finally came to our table an hour later at 7pm. My children were restless and hungry at that point as well as the adults. Although the chef put on a good show and entertained our children. I had a hard time hearing the chef over the background noise and could not communicate with the other people in our group because we were spread out around the grill. This setting is good for a smaller group but I did enjoy the food although it was very greasy.

    comparing our food portion to the people arcoss from us we were shorted food . the other tables had tons of rice and vegtables and we hardly had any . the food was good do not get me wrong but I felt like they did not give us all our meals because our cook had to go back to the kitcken for more meat for two more people

    Great food- but do not go if you are in a hurry. At least 2 hours- from soup to entree. You can just order food and not have the chef if you eat in the bar for quicker dining

    This is probably one of the most entertaining places to eat out as a family in the TC. The chefs do a great job preparing your meal in the most energetic and showy way possible! And we have never been disappointed in the quality of the food. There is a very fine line in the service and hospitality industry between being helpful and pestering a customer...our server was walking a little too close to that line! Attentive is good, clingy is not! Otherwise everything was awesome!

    Our server, Ruth, and our Chef both provided us with a very enjoyable experience. My husband and I have enjoyed Fujiama's in the past; however this was a first time experience for my sister and her husband. Their laughter was a sure signal that they loved the ambiance. The fact that their plates were slicked clean speaks for how much they loved the meal.

    We have been to many Japanese steakhouses before but this was by far the best. Our cook's name was Gunda and he was the best part. He was so entertaining, he had us laughing the entire meal. The food was excellent and the price was the best we have seen. We have already recommended it to others and we will definitely be coming back next year!

    We went knowing a little what to expect, but when we got there it was pretty empty so we got a table to ourselves. It was a lot of fun to watch them cook the food and both our chef and server were nice, polite, and fun. We ordered the chicken and steak for two. The food was excellent.

    If you enjoy interacting with other guests, the chef and servers, this is the spot for you. The evening was very lively, so if you expect a relaxed , quiet meal this would not be for you. The sinking experience is great for an celebration: bachelorette party, birthday party young and old alike --- really anything that needs a celebration. We were travelling and it made a fun evening to meet others from the Tri-cities.

    We came in as a large group and had an awesome experience. All facets of the night were above our expectations. We are a "Singles" group that gets together once a month and this was by far the most welcoming experience than any other restaurant we've been to. Liked the fact that we could book on-line for a reservation and that they checked for anyone with food allergies, which we did have one person. Would definately give a 5 Star rating.

    Dined on 7/26/2014
    My family and I went there on Saturday the 26. We got seated, then our server came and took our drink orders. Shortly after a different server brought us our drinks. Then left, we were ready to order at this point. 10 mins later he comes back and attempts to take our order. It takes him about 5 different try's to get it right. We put in our appetizer order in too. Another 10 mins pass, the server comes back only to go over our order yet again. He hasn't even put in our appetizers yet. When we finally got out soups and salad, still no appetizers. They showed up right as the cook was starting our food. We had to keep asking for refills. He didn't remember who had what drinks. It wasn't a very pleasant experience this time.

    My husband and I picked this restaurant to send his parents for their 30th anniversary. We are out of state but had good experiences at Japanese steakhouses so our hopes were high. They delivered! Moreover, my other in law says they treated them like royalty! We're so happy they had an amazing experience, especially because we couldn't be there. I would recommend this place for special occasions and any other time too!

    First time there, probably won't go back. Food was yummy and portions were large, chef was friendly and polite, waitress was ok, hostess was an idiot and sitting a quiet couple with a birthday party is not smart business. Would recommend for parties but not for date night need to get hostess who isn't oblivious. Though the prices were not bad, disappointing atmosphere being crammed @ a table with loud strangers not what we had planned.

    We went here for our anniversary dinner. We were not let down in the least. The prices although maybe a little bit high were still reasonable, the food was excellent and the show, service from the chef and wait staff was great! I would say the only thing that wasnt great was they never served us our appetizer that was included in our meal. other than that great experience!
