    Everything was great food, drinks, atmosphere ect... The one problem was the Rib eye steak. There were about 5 people at our table that ordered the RIb eye. It was seasoned and cooked beautifully, problem was the chef did not trim any fat off of the steak before mixing it all together to serve to the individual guests. My portion wasn't bad, but my wife's meal consisted of nearly 75% fat trimmings will only a few bites of real steak. Other than that the service was great, and the chef was funny and good with my 6 year old daughter. Will definatley be going back just next time will not order the Rib eye.

    You should definitely go once. We had 8 pm reservations and didn't get seated til 8:40. I was extremely disappointed with that. The beginning service was slow. It took another 20 mins to get our drink order. The service was slow but the food and show were great.

    The waiter was terrible and the food boring. Iceberg lettuce salad and a over-breaded greasy chicken wing to start. A waiter who when asked what he likes on the appetizer list said, "I've never eaten the food here." Then when asked a question about the wine list, he said, "This menu is so confusing." The chef who cooked in front of us seemed totally I enthused and sarcastic. Our bill for two meals and two appetizers and three drinks was $100!

    It's always fun to eat at a place with a hibachi chef...fun, but expensive! I had the Surf & Turf, and both the lobster and filet mignon were delicious. However, I do think there was perhaps too much "special sauce" put on the fried rice, as well as the dressing on my salad. I also had some digestive discomfort about two hours after eating -- maybe because the food was really rich, or maybe from MSGs or something else in the food; I don't know. Regardless, this is a place that I'd really only go to for a special occasion -- like my 5-year wedding anniversary, which is why we were here. The chef was fun and skillful, the food was good, but the wait was much longer than anticipated.

    Went to celebrate my 17 yr olds birthday lunch at 1, specifically to keep cost down with a groups of 6 with us. They ended up charging us dinner prices making the meal even more then we expected. We have been here before and never had this problem. It's a horrible way to do business. I had even told then we were having a birthday lunch. Very disappointed. Will not return to the location.

    wish we hadn't gone as a group, too loud for conversation, be better as a couple or maybe foursome. I was disappointed because I ordered a cake (was my grandsons birthday) got a cheesecake, which I could have gotten anywhere, nothing special. The food was good though, and the kids enjoyed the "entertainment"

    I came with my wife and stepson to celebrate my wife's birthday. My stepson was never in a Japanese restaurant Before so it was quite the treat for him. My wife and I went to a Japanese restaurant about three years ago in SPANAWAY' WASHINGTON. They did similar tricks and comedy. I liked the servers jokes and things he did with The eggs and meat. We Will. Definitely come back.

    Dined on 2/22/2014
    There were birthdays being celebrated and that's fine but when the guests start to use foul language and are asked not to stop that's uncalled for. There were children in this restaurant also at the time. In fact there was a little girl at our table who was only 6. Maybe the staff needs some training on how to handle guest like that.. We also noticed other sections food starting to be cooked before ours even though we were there before them. One of the patrons asked one of the bus boys when our turn was and he was rude and basically blew him off. This might of been because our cook was busy "partying" with the one table, such as drinking with them. That's just not right and then to get a lousy show.
