    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

Uh hello I was asking for my bill so I could pay it, not bail on my tab!! He was a complete egomaniac totally trying to act like he was a way better than us'

    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!

    We loved our waitress she was great, but disappointed with the chef, which is one of the reasons we go, we like the entertainment! He had no personality whatsoever . Did not realise an automatic tip was added to part of 6, so I added another $30 on top of that, which the waitress was deserving of, not so much the chef!

    We asked if the order could just be charged in the house since it was missed & we had to wait for our food while the rest of our group was eating & the manager in charge won't re-consider. Would be a nice gesture & compensation. But overall the dining experience was fun & entertaining.

  • Daughter's birthday party
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/26/2014
    My daughter chose Fujiyama as her birthday dinner destination. The food was fantastic and the chef was entertaining. It was a great experience overall. I love the fact that they comp the birthday person's meal. That said, they make up for it in several "nickle and dime" charges on the bill at the end of the meal - they charged us $3.00 for my 4 year old to share her sister's meal (come on - she's 4. There is no way she eats enough food to warrant that charge), each of the kid's drinks was $2.00, which seemed a bit excessive, and the "free" birthday cake was actually $3.00. Overall, we love this restaurant. We will return but most likely we won't bring the whole family. It will become a date night destination only.

    Our group of 14 was seated together but they had to split some of us out between the two chefs assingned to each cooking area. A little dissapointing but still fun. Service by our waiter was great. Very personable and attentive. Waiter and chef very interactive with our entire group and we laughed and loved the show! Have never had so much fun at dinner.

    Food was fantastic, and you could easily split an entree with all the other stuff that comes with it. We purchased the VIP card and had a little upset with that (they used to do it as a point system, now you just receive 10% off for every visit). Overall it was a great experience, if you go request Yipeekiyea as your chef, he is hilarious!
