A word from Japoix
JAPOIX elevates the concept of fusion cuisine with a new American approach to dining in which guests can share, savor and socialize in an upscale atmosphere. Combining flavors from America's ethnically diverse landscape with traditional techniques, Japoix's cuisine strongly magnifies pan-Asian twists on American staples. Whether sharing the contemporary sushi rolls and small plates or indulging in the innovative hot stone cooking called ishiyaki. Choose from cuts of meat like tender Wagyu Kobe ribeye, full-flavored lamb sirloin or prime New York strip steak, which will be sliced and presented raw with a trio of house-made sauces. Using a salted slab of volcanic rock heated to a searing temperature of 1,000 degrees, guests can cook their meat selections at the table for a fully customizable and engaging dining experience.

    Unfortunately you can tell this place is on its way out. When we dined here there were issues from the moment we walked in the door. We had reservations and when we walked in we could see there were several open tables, but the hostess made us wait 15 minutes before seating us. We were immediately greeted by our server but when we didn't order an alcoholic beverage she gave us a rude look and was visibly disappointed. The service went down hill from there. The food portions were incredibly small given the fact that their price points are high, an example of this would be the mussels, $8.00 for 8 small mussels. The rest of the food lacked much needed seasoning. Changes need to take place or they will close soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/14/2012
    Business model has moved away from fine dining to a club atmosphere. Food portions were normal for small plates, however the filet on a hot stone looked like 3 ounces,it was a poor value for the money. Some items were good, like the pork belly slider and duck fried rice, and some things were so poor we should have sent them back (the mussels were mushy and flavorless and the octopus salad was so salty we couldn't eat it). I will not revisit.

    We go to Japoix all the time but this particular evening the service was fair/poor. Our server never checked in us to see if we needed anything until the end of the night, thus we only got one order of drinks. Nor were our water glasses filled up. It was like we were invisible as folks surrounding us were waited on.

    Always the best. Lawrence and Julie made it special yet again. The Manhattan was great and a bonus that Lawrence made the recommendation. Crab claw corn dog treat was weird but very tasty. Seared tenderloin was excellent; little chewy but extremely flavorful. Hot rock New York strip was fun.

    We have eaten at Japoix several times and always enjoy the quality of the food and the great ambiance and service. They have changed up the menu and gone to smaller plates, which is great because it gives us a chance so many new items. Overall, love Japoix and it is a great place to take visiting friends because it never disappoints.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/11/2012
    The attempts for creative dishes fell short, as they were not well cooked, and the flavors did not work well together. There were four people in our party, and we each had atleast three dishes each, and not one person cared for any of the dishes served. We dine out frequently, and have not had such poor food in a great while.

    We go eat here at least 3x a month and service is always an issue in the restaurant area. Water goes empty for 5 minutes or longer, you have to ask for a refill and even then it takes a while. Service is different at the bar/lounge. Bar/lounge service is so much better than the restaurant side!

    We were very happy with most of the items we ordered at Japoix. I the Kobe beef sliders were our favorite and I would definitely go back to try the other varieties. The small plates are great for sharing so you can try many different foods.

  • Poor Service, food just okay
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 8/4/2012
    As usual, the food was okay but the service really was beyond poor. The spicy bread was completely overcooked and so hard that we couldn’t eat it. The server did not even notice the entire plate of bread was still there when she cleared the table and did not inquire if it was okay or if something was wrong. Beverages were also another issue. We were never asked if we wanted another cocktail and had to ask for more water after our server came to our table several times and walked away from the empty glasses. For a server to visit a table 2-3 times and ignore empty glasses is unacceptable. Was NOT impressed with our service!

    New menu/new chef= bad news. All the waiters were confused, two of five of our dishes were wrong. The prices are ridiculous now, we spent $50 and barely anything. The food dishes are tiny and the proteins are even smaller. Bring back the old menu and we'll be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP

    Several problems: they switched to a tasting menu only. While that ended up to be okay, everything was SO spicy even though our server had assured us it was not. Perhaps they had a new chef that was over zealous with spice and heat. We could barely eat our miso cod and other items. We would have asked for something else but the kitchen and service was so slow that we gave up. Then...we ordered their toffee cake with ice cream which was good until we realized the sauce/bottom was burned. Needless to say, it was not a good night. Our first clue should have been with the hostess with big holes (gauges earrings) in her ears. Not appetizing and the servers were sloppy and unkempt too. Again, they must have a new owner. It used to be better

    Not sure I really get Japoix. The interior design appears to be random and not cohesive. The prices for the steak were high considering you had to cook it yourself on a stone at your table. On top of that our service was not anything to write home about. Good luck on your future.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 7/16/2012
    I say that Japoix has a "vibrant bar scene" only because from what I saw of the restaurant/bar it looked like an okay place to grab a quick drink. I would not recommend Japoix to anyone looking for any food. It is your below-average "bar food". The service was horrible, even on the slow night we were there.

    We found this place online and i am glad we did. The servers were extremelly helpfull but not overly pressuring. The food was absolutely amazing. We ordered three dishes and couldnt finish all of it. The prices for the food were very affordable and more than worth it. The atmoshere inside was welcoming and made you want to smile. This is a great place for a romantic dinner or for a group of friends or coworkers to hang out and try interesting food and drinks. I would suggest the electric french kiss as one of those interesting experiences. While the flower in the drink is an aquired taste, you will soon understand why it is electric. You have to try the experience to understand. Overall one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

    What's not to like about a locally owned Asian inspired menu that combines sweet, spicy, and robust impressively balanced. We had a group of 4, and had the second best seat in the house (a large round table at the front windows). The best table is a wonderfully large round table set by the kitchen which looks like it could seat 10. There is also a family style long table that looks like it would be a great place to sit as well. Food was great. We had a mixture of items from the menu ranging from bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese and nuts, to panko breading covered shrimp mac n' cheese. We had a great time, the food and wine was perfect, and the staff was great! We also had the hot rock, which was fun to share!

    This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but it seems to have gone down hill. We received less meat than in the past with the social hot rock and lamb is no longer an option. The hot rock also used to come with fries and now does not. They have changed the fries and not for the better. The corn doc lobster claws were great, but we were disappointed as we have experienced excellence from them in the past.
