  • "Our chef was very talented and entertaining. Excellent food."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I trusted that this restaurant establishment would come through for me and my friend and her birthday. Flowers were brought out and the service and food was very good (a little on the salty side), especially the Yum-Yum sauce!"

  • "Once again, Genji's does not fail. Superb food and our chef was particularly funny with a unique sense of humor and personality -- which made it even more entertaining."

  • "The chef was entertaining and the food was delicious as always. We've never had a bad experience at Genji and my kids love it!"

  • "Service was great. Our waitress was on point and made all of the appropriate accommodations for my dietary needs and got refills right away. The cook wasn't very exciting for it being dinner time but the food was good. "

  • "As a first timer it was a nice experience. The group of people we sat with were helpful and friendly and our hostess was personable and knowledgable. The chef was young, funny, and did well preparing our dishes. Will definitely come back!"

  • "The food was great, our chief was lacking a little on the show and was not great about knowing who ordered what. "

  • "There was a young boy at our table with a birthday. The restaurant staff was very energetic in wishing him a very happy birthday. Our server was new and needs a lot more practice perhaps under a more experienced server. We always enjoy coming to Genji's."

  • " The hostess, Sunny, was extremely rude, condescending, & not at all helpful. The server Aretha, Chef Carlos were both amazing! We drove an hour & a half just to dine at the restaurant & to be greeted by such a negative attitude was a huge disappointment. If it wasn't for the Birthday girl in our party, we would have left. "

  • "Genji's Steakhouse was wonderful. The chef cooked the meal right at our table. He made the onion volcano for our niece and she loved it. I greatly recommend it to anyone who is interested in having a nice evening with family. They keep you entertained so well that the children do not recognize that they are eating healthy food."

  • "Despite it's location in a neighborhood which becomes shadier by the day, Genji is still a good family restaurant. It has basically the same offerings as most of the other Japanese steakhouses, with one exception - no onion dressing for the salad! This was very disappointing to me, as it's one of my favorite things about Japanese steakhouses. I did not want (nor really care for) having yum yum sauce as my salad dressing!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Genji has excellent food and a fun atmosphere. The server was extremely busy the night we visited, but she was still pleasant, quick, and friendly. She didn't allow the large number of guests to shake her. The chef was skilled and funny and the food was amazing. Three people in my party had never been to Genji before and two had never been to a Japanese steakhouse before; all three are interested in going back soon."

  • "By far one of our favorite restaurants. Always a fun experience and the chefs are GREAT to watch (and always have a great sense of humor). I definitely recommend genjis."

  • "I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I was a bit disappointed with the particular waiter and chef that we had...I observed other tables and their chef was much more entertaining than ours. That being said, I would definitely go back."

  • "Genji is a fun place to get some delicious food with an interesting show. My wife and I enjoyed the experience."

  • "Been to Genji's many times. Always a treat. Great place for an occasion. Had to wait for awhile for a chef, but it was worth it. We have been to most of the Columbus Japanese Steakhouses and decided this is our favorite!!"

  • "Dinner was delicious and the wait staff was nice. The whole experience was delightful."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Food was very good! Waitress was prompt with refills on drinks. Chef was great at preparing the food, but could use a little more practice handling the utensils."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Food was not cooked good. Shrimp tasted mushy and the steak was under cooked. It seemed liked they cooked on a time limit not by quality..My salad also had no greens just the yellow core which I usually throw away."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Celebrated Valentines Day a day early this year. Picked this restaurant on a friends suggestion. Service was top notch, table side "show" was as good as I've experienced. Food was ok. Best item of the night was the tempura roll. Had higher expectations. Physical plant is a bit worn. Probably would go back but with lower expectations."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Our chef didn't seem to be in the mood to work, which makes it less enjoyable to seat with people that you don't know. He didn't do any entertainment or give a show at all. The only thing he did was cook the food. When we come to Genji's, we like the show and the interaction with the chef. It makes it fun to be with be with people you don't know. We do come to Genji's a few times a year and usually we have a good time. But most of the time it is with a lot more people."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I think the chef was having an off night. He started out fun and talkative but that didn't last long. He didn't do the onion volcano and seemed a little stressed making sure that the orders were correct. The food was great as always but when it was over, he didn't offer any yum yum sauce to take home. Luckily the server got it for us. Maybe he was having a bad day but part of the cost of dinner is the show."

  • "The food and service was better than it has been previously. It is always great but this time was exceptional. I would highly recommend Genji for a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We go to Genji several times a year. The food was great as always. But our server was not good. He was slow, brought us cold tea and then took a while to replace it. Spilled soup all over my seating area and didn't bring anything to clean it up, we had to ask. He forgot the steamed rice for a member of our party and the chef had to ask him to bring it once he was passing out the fried rice. We have had better here which is good. We would not go back based on this visit if it had been out first."

  • "The food was great, the staff was great, however it was very smoky in the restaurant I don't know if the exhaust fans weren't working or what. Some updating would be nice the restaurant has looked the same for many many years. It is definitely not cheap to eat there, update it a bit."

  • "My wife had never been to a Japanese steak house before and thats where she wanted to go for our anniversary. The food was very good but the srevice was even better. There was constant interaction from the chef with the table and the server never let your drinks get close to empty. It was quiet and romatic while fun and full of entertainment. Wonderful time!"

  • "I was pleasantly surprised with this last visit. I will, more than likely, forever love Genji's for various reasons... this visit was such a refresher. The food was phenomenal, and the service was great. I have only had two recurring complaints with Genji.. the service and the ventilation... this time, the service (wait staff) was great. She didn't forget our drinks, chopsticks, nor our appetizer. The ventilation needs an upgrade. I love this food, however, I don't enjoy smelling like it for the rest of the night.... love, LOVE, the food!"

  • "We've been to a number of different Japanese steak houses around the country and Gengi in Reynoldsburg still has the best fried rice hands down!"
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "Gengji has done way down hill in the last year. They are way over priced as well. I tried to substitute vegetables for rice and was charged for items I did not get. Even my 12 year old son who's birthday we were celebrating at Gengi (3rd year in a row) said he will pick a new place to celebrate his birthday next year. I'm not going back."
