    The food was great. The cook was funny had a very good sense of humor and he did a sponge bob rice cake for my husbands birthday. He truly was a very good cook and kept us laughing the whole time we were there. Service was very good and we would recommend Fujiyama's to everyone. We absolutely had a wonderful time while we were there.

  • 40 years with Fujiyama
    Surprise
    Dined on 9/21/2014
    My family and friends have been guests of Fujiyama for 40 years. Since it first opened. The menu has increased however, the main menu is the same as it was in the beginning. I might add that the main menu still taste the same "GREAT" We used to visit Fujiyama on a regular basis but with the increases in the cost it has become a Special Occasion restaurant now. In my oppion there is one thing that Fujiyama just does not seem to pay attention to. That is what Special Occasion are you here for if any. I have told the Hostess, I have phoned a head and I have emailed my Special Occasion Requests. But still Fujiyama does not acknowledge with a simple desert as a surprise. I always have to say something after the meal. Where's surprise?

    Our chef for the evening was very entertaining and engaging. If you've never experienced a hibachi grill like this, you should go at least once. This is a great place for young kids as they will be engaged and entertained. The food was on the bland side - not as good as usual. The service was ok... we had drinks when needed and all, just not on the friendly-make-me-want-to-come-back side of the scale.

    disappointed
    Dined on 6/27/2014
    We have eaten at Fujiyama before and had a pretty decent meal. It seemed like we got cheated on when it came to the amount of meat we received, but it was good. This time, we were definitely given less than the other people at our table. My husband ordered the filet and chicken combo. The "filet" he received was very second rate compared to the other 3 that were cooked and served at our table. In my opinion it didn't even look like a filet at all, just a piece of meat. He was very disappointed and has decided we will not be returning.

    Enjoyed the show of cooking at your table and our chef was truly entertaining. This restaurant has been here many years and has kept the same level of service and enjoyment. They now have a sushi bar separate from the main dining room if you are there only for sushi. Lots of food and each of us took home nearly half of our food. Overall a fun evening.

    This is the first time we have eaten here. I had gone in to get a gift card for a friend and decided i wanted to eat here. And boy i didnt wanna leave. the food was soooo delish. I am not a sushi person, but my friends had this one called a playboy... im hooked. i love that they cook bean sprouts and the cook can acutally cook a steak to the correct temp. the service was pretty good. Kayla was very nice and put up with my friends running her around. the owner even came by asking how everything was. i think they have redone it because it looks really clean. i will be back maybe just for the playboy!!!

    We were seated promptly & attended to with menus & drinks. We placed our orders & waited for the show to begin. The ambiance was nice but there was a lot of overall noise in the restaurant but that is to be expected on a Saturday night. Our chef was very talented and entertaining! The food was good and our steaks were cooked correctly. My only disappointment was that my daughter-in-law had ordered something from the sushi menu but it was never brought to her. We were not charged but I felt badly for her because we were celebrating her birthday and I wanted her to get everything she wanted to try from the menu since it was a special occasion. Overall we had a very nice experience and a tasty meal. I would still recommend Fujiyama to anyone.

    I went to dinner with my mother, my three sisters, and myself. Our server was extremely attentive and we never lacked anything. It did take a while for our chef to arrive, but it was worth the wait. He did and excellent job and the food was delicious as always. The restaurant was extremely loud, so i would not recommend it for someone wanting a quiet dinner.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Fujiyama. However, the service was a little slow, the restaurant was too busy, and the chef had a little snark. I'm very glad we booked a reservation because when we got there the line was out the door and there was an hour wait. We dropped $100 for two people and I was not thoroughly satisfied. I'd much rather go to Ichiban, but alas, Fujiyama is closer. I'll definitely go again and give it another review.

    Fujiyama's food is great, the waitress and the chef were nice, overall our group of 8 had a good time. But, don't be surprised if your reservation isn't honored at the door! We got there 5 minutes before our reservation time, 6 of the 8 of us, but they wouldn't quote us a time until everyone arrived. One couple got lost on the way and were running about 10 minutes late. I finally gave up on the hostess and said we were all there and then we were included on the wait list. We sat down 45 minutes after our reservation time. I realize we had a larger group and required our own table, but parties of 2(w/ reservations) had to wait long past their "reservation time". Maybe it should be called "call ahead seating" and not a reservation!

    We use Fujiyama's for special occasions -- we live close by -- however, my grandson's have developed a taste for the adult filet mignon versus the steak on the kids menu !! Therefore, much more costly for us !! and just can't afford to go as often as we would like. We were there Friday night at 6pm and there were 8 of us -- the dining room was very noisy -- difficult to have a conversation with the rest of our group who were at the other end of the table. We have been there often enough to have had the same chef's over and over again and noticed a few new ones, with some new "tricks" -- next time, will request a newer face to entertain us while they are cooking. Overall, still our favorite place to go for special occasions !!!
