  • "We almost waited 45 minutes for our chef to start cooking. We got to the restaurant at 7:30 and didn't start eating till almost 8:30."

  • "I visit this restaurant quite a bit.. but on this occasion it was by far the worst service i have had at any restaurant ever. and when I talked to the manager they basically said better luck next time. I had to wait 25 minutes for a single refill on a drink then asked for it by flagging down a server.. then had to wait another 10 and then finally got it. Never did get a second refill of lemonade. Previous to this occasion I have never had to wait for a drink let alone flag someone down to get one though. The worst part was that when I talked to the manager about it, she said next time drinks are on her.. but the drinks are free when you get the feast!"

  • "Each time I go to the House of Japan, it's a little different. The food is good (especially the salad). it's very entertaining to watch the chefs as they cook, tossing the spatula and knife. I think it must take a lot of practice and skill."

  • "You know what to expect and you get just that. The fun is, of course, watching the chef fix your food. Always entertaining and kids just love the experience. At House of Japan, we always love the fried rice. Folks rave about the egg yolk sauce so I'll have to try that sometime. Food is basic but good....it's all about the preparation!"

  • "I got very little portions compared to people around me, including my husband. The shrimp portion was a lot smaller than the person next to me who also had a shrimp and scallop meal. My veggies were half the size of the the small portion of shrimp as well. The salad was soaked in dressing to the point it was soggy. I had mentioned we were celebrating our wedding and not one congratulation or recognition. The sushi and soup were the best and only part I liked. Did I mention how long it took for refills and to clear the dishes, also did I mention how we were crowded around people who literally did not care if they were in your personal space or around their children when we went for a a special occasion as stated in the reservation."

  • "Our group of 5 was immediately herded to our table, where our order taker wanted our order as soon as we sat down, as soon as the menus were shoved into our hands. We were not even given an opportunity tp peruse the menu. Our food was immediately shoved at us, soup, salad, drinks all at once (and I do mean shoved). Our chef was so hurried that he hadn't the time to do his "schtick." Plum wine is no longer served with The Feast; soup bowls are smaller. We received our bill before our meal was completed. We were just about shoved out the door, and the entryway was so crowded we could hardly leave. I'd bet the number of persons permitted by law was exceeded. We were in and out in 50 minutes for a supposedly 5-course meal! Too bad :("

  • "I love eating here its our favorite place but our chef this time had a request and we felt he didnt concentrate as much on his entire table and the food and as such it was somewhat burned....it will not stop us from coming but we would never come and sit at this groups table again..."

  • "I was disappointed that I had made my reservation 2 weeks in advance and still had to wait 35 minutes to be seated"

  • "Our chef was very entertaining and considerate when my 5-year-old thought that the "spatula drumming" was too loud. What else can one say? If you like hibachi-style food you will like it. I find it more appropriate for families with kids as they love the koi fish under the glass bridge (which needs replacing as it is so fogged you can no longer see see the fish) and the atmosphere is quite dull. The food is better than Genji, though, in my opinion."

  • "Fun place to go. Entertaining to see the chef cook in front of you. Food was good, but felt it was a little too salty. They put soy sauce on everything, even the lobster! Maybe next time we will ask for no soy sauce on the lobster."

  • "Did not havea chance to enjoy the soup or salad it was brought out way to fast and we were offered boxes for our dinner as we were sitting there eating. They rushed us so fast I will never go back to the restaraunt again. Very disappointed to say the least. The cooks are not as interactive as they use to be either. it was 131.00 for five of us and I would have rather went to Bob Evans after that experience."

  • "Highly recommend going to this location! There were multiple birthdays including my own. Always be sure your party will be ON time so you can sit down together. They won't seat you until all of your party is present. Great server too."

  • "Chose House of Japan to celebrate a high school graduation. We were seated immediately at our reserved time. The waiter was very patient when we asked questions about the menu. The chef at the table was great!! Very talented and entertaining. Great sense of humor. Although the meals are bit pricy, you do get a lot of quality food for the money. Nearly everyone ended up with a take-home box. Very tasty. Would highly recommend The House of Japan, especially for celebrations."

  • "This was my first time eating at House of Japan and it was an "okay" experience. The food was pretty good. Our chef was great with his entertainment and paid attention to the little ones in the group which was nice. We have a Japanese restaurant in southern Ohio and I actually like it better. They offer more vegetables and also noodles which are very good. I did not care for the sprouts that were added to our meals. My husband and son both love sushi and I think this restaurant seemed to have a large selection and they said it was very good. I guess I would recommend this place if someone is looking for this type of food."

  • "Great everything for what it is supposed or be. We did not get the sherbet at the end unfortunately for our 4 kids but the experience and food is always great. First time using the OpenTable app and I love it! I plan to use it every time I possibly can. "

  • "We frequent House of Japan often. The Food and Service is always great! We made a 2:00 reservation and did not get seated until 2:30. We were a little upset by this but the friendly and entertaining chef we had soon made s forget. We will go back but would like to see them stick to the reservation times a little better!"

  • "We have been coming here for years. Tried several other Japanese steakhouses, but have not found any that can compare to the quality of food, entertainment and service. We will drive past every other steakhouse just to eat here. You will NEVER be disappointed."

  • "We went for my daughter's birthday with family. She loved the attention the chef gave her as he prepared our food and how he entertained everyone with his onion volcano, etc. The food was also good although it is very salty. That is my major complaint about House of Japan. I need to drink three glasses of water when I am finished the meal or I wake up that night because I am thirsty. Overall though I think it is a great place for a group celebration."

  • "This was my first experience at House of Japan and I truly enjoyed myself. The food was great, the chef was a pleasure to have and the atmosphere was nice. Even though service was a little slow, I would definitely recommend it others. House of Japan is in my top 3 list of hibachi steakhouses. "

  • "We eat here a lot. This is our favorite restaurant by far. The chefs prepare your food at the table and create a fun environment. They are always friendly and have excellent service. And the food, very high-quality, prepared perfect every time, and you get large portions. We went on Easter with our children this time and their interaction with the kids made for a great time for everyone at the table."

  • "Well I suppose it is unfair to say the best seeing as I've not been to all of them but I'm not sure you can get better for the price. This place provides the text-book Japanese Steakhouse experience so you can rely on it to deliver if that happens to be what you're craving. Food is always very high quality and they continually implement new elements into the show."

  • "The chefs are entertaining so there is no ho hum while you wait for dinner. We had the strip steak and shrimp. Although the steak is not cooked exactly as you order it, close is enough. Food is yummy from the simple soup and salad through the main course. SPOILER ALERT: Nice birthday perks! Drum beat procession to your table with singing and a boat shaped pineapple wedge complete with candle! I wouldn't call the place incredibly romantic but a good place for a fun date. FYI firey display may not be suitable for the fearful child or the faint of heart. Two thumbs up! MUST GO!"

  • "Overall it was a good time. The place was overcrowded and even with a reservation we were seated 10 minutes late The chef did a nice job and the food was good but not great The place was very noisy making it hard to hear anyone who was not sitting next to you"
