    Recommendations from the regular menu: the Asian pear salad, and the grilled asparagus with a mustard-miso sauce. The special we had was a mahi-mahi over a quinoa salad - superb. Nice ambiance, very comfortable seating, impeccable service.

    KOME IS AWESOME! FROM THE MOMENT YOU WALK THRU THE REVOLVING DOOR, GREET, AND GET SEATED YOU KNOW YOU'RE SOMEWHERE SPECIAL! EXTENSIVE MENU OPTIONS CAN BE A LITTLE INTIMIDATING FOR THE NOVICE SUSHI / SUSHIMI DINER. HOWEVER, IF YOU TAKE TIME TO READ AND ASK YOUR SERVER QUESTIONS (DON'T BE SHY) THE KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF WILL HELP DESCRIBE THE FOOD OR DRINK ITEM WITH CANDOR AND EXPERTICE! TRUST YOUR SERVER AND YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! - GREAT QUALITY, FRESHNESS, CLEAN, ARTISTIC, APPETISING! GO FOR IT! - YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    We went here because we had a gift card. Because we were going on a Friday night we decided to make a reservation. When we got there we didn't see the point. We still had to wait 20 minutes for a table, and there were tons of tables empty! We ended up changing to sitting at the sushi bar for the entertainment, talking to the chefs, etc.

    Presentation was excellent, and the food did not disappoint. Everyone chose a different menu item deliberately outside of our typical comfort zones. Our waiter Paul excelled. He was attentive, understood and explained the complex specials, and he answered our questions about other menu items easily. Our graduate had chosen Kome and everyone enjoyed it.

    Our server today named Sarah was extraordinary making our dining experience at this restaurant a memorable one. The oysters were very fresh as usual as well as our 3 orders of the O-Toro and 2 orders of the Tuna Bites to start off our luncheon. My Salmon that came with the Bento box was cooked to perfection including the other dishes in the party of 4. Deserts were excellent, very nice presentation and light. Must try if you never been to Kome at Saucon Valley.

    We wanted sushi so we made a reservation for the dining room. This was our third trip and the streak still stands. The food is fine but don't expect much for service. Our waiter was friendly enough, but the hostess set us completely away from the rest of his tables (we were in a corner for away from anyone, actually). I overheard our waiter complaining to a manager about it (awkward!). I'm not sure why they felt the need to sit us directly in a corner at a tiny table where our elbows would hit the wall when they had a full room available, but again, par for the course. Food was excellent, but no one ever went through our chefs choice sampler (so not sure what we were eating) and no one stopped back until we were nearly done.

    We have heard great things about this place, but when we went our reservation was for 7:30. We did not get our food until after 8:30 and our server rarley came by our table to see if we needed anything. Our "medium well" steak came out very rare. The food was only okay for how much we paid.

    Food was delicious and the seafood was very very fresh and well prepared. My only complaint is the front desk never recorded our arrival and I received a "No Show" from Open Table. It was subsequently rectified a few days later. Since that was our very first visit to the establishment that was the only negative point that sticks to my mind. Will be returning again.

    My husband and I visited on May 3. Excellent drink service at the bar. After seated in main dining room, we waited 15 mins til being greeted by our server. We knew we were in trouble with the wait time so we ordered apps and entrees at once. Our menus were never taken the whole time we were there, so we left them on the seat next to us. We requested ice water and Sake. We waited another 5 mins for water and after another 5 mins when the server returned asking if we would like another drink, we reminded him that we ordered Sake. After 20 mins asked server to bring out CA Rolls. Remaining app, salad and entrees came out all at once 20 mins later. Entrees sent back as there was no room on table. Had to wait another 20 mins for entrees.

    We loved the food, the service was great and we were able to sit and enjoy ourselves without feeling rushed. We didn't do the hibachi this time but when we walked by the hibachi area we saw how much fun everyone was having so we're coming back in July to do that when my son comes home from his overseas army assignment.

    we met for dinner on the early-side. we were not rushed and had a superb meal presented with interest & full of flavor. seafood salad, sushi and popcorn shrimp were expected to be excellent. what was pleasing was that the pan seared new york strip steak was also outstanding. honey glazed sweet potato on the side was "pretty" but not luscious. only somewhat disappointing as the steak preparation made up for what the potato lacked. nice, diverse menu with options for different tastes.

  • My son's 22nd birthday
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/5/2014
    was a great success at Kome'. He was looking for something different, and fresh and Kome' delivered. We enjoyed sushi and sashimi, a Godzilla roll (awesome!) and tried a hot and a cold app per our waiter's suggestions....all terrific. He also got an entrée of shrimp and scallops that was very good - but I was full by this time. Our waiter brought my son a nice light dessert, complete with a candle for his birthday and we sang (nice, but not too embarrassing). I also enjoyed a fruity martini with lychee, and he had a great Japanese espresso stout he really liked. Success!

    We booked our dining reservation and upon arriving the hostess could not find our name in the system. Upon further looking our reservation was given to another couple. The hostess asked for assistance from another employee and they questioned our name. The only assumption we can come up with is the other couple showed up at our reservation time, they were asked if they had a reservation but not asked for a name. The hostess said it didn't matter that she didn't ask the other couples name, they were uncertain if a table available. Fortunately we were able to get seated. The service was a bit slow. We did not get plates for our meal but our food was served, so we had to wait for our waiter. We sat without drink refills including water.

    Kome continues to be the best Japanese restaurant in the Lehigh Valley! We are frequent diners at Kome and the chef and the wait staff just continue to deliver imaginative creations of the highest quality. The wait staff is very professional and friendly, and are well versed on the menu offerings. My husband and I recently dined at Kome and selected from the specials for the day. Each one was delicious, showed the chef's creativity and was prepared with very fresh high quality ingredients. Our high expectations were met and exceeded at Kome! Love it.

    This restaurant was recommended by a B&B, where we were staying. It did NOT disappoint! The menu was extensive and the food was of the highest quality. Only 2 regrets: 1.) they didn't have many high-end saki's by the glass and 2.) we didn't get to try more of the menu items! Even though it's 90 min form our home, it is worth the ride, just for dinner.

    This is the best Japanese, and arguably one of the best, restaurants here in the Lehigh Valley. I've been here many times and each time, they never fail to be less than superb. I've been to similar restaurants in NYC and San Francisco, and this one has impressed me the most. My wife and I always leave Kome saying, "That was so good!"

    Kome is always great Japanese food for the valley. Service this time was slow and our waitress was not friendly And even sort of argued with us when she got a wine that Was ordered wrong. The other thing was hours? They were Closing at 11pm? We use To go there for drinks before going out and they Stayed oped much later? For how busy they were I don't understand? Felt like we were getting kicked out...

    I've been to this restaurant many times and it has never disappointed. The quality of the seafood is so fresh and flavorful. I intended to get the spicy seafood soup which is wonderful, but opted for the special, which was duck confit soup. It was tasty and perfect for a cold winter day. I also had some lettuce wraps filled with cooked fish that was light and tasty. A favorite on their dinner menu is the sous-vide salmon encrusted with crushed wasabi peas and pine nuts. This cooking method is not often found in this area and the end result is luscious salmon that almost melts in your mouth.

    Highly disappointed with our service. Restaurant very short staffed? Everything seemed to take a while. Received drinks over 20 minutes later. Out of martini mix. Server did not mention specials. I had to inquire myself I also requested waterfrom SERVER when our meals arrived. He totally forgot. I ate dinner without water Our appetizers were not hot when they arrived at the table as well. I am not one to complain. But when I am paying a bill at a restaurant like this, I EXPECT the best service. The water/buser was more attentive. Maybe he should be serving? Or perhaps the restaurant manager needs to better staff the restaurant on a busy saturday night, so the customers are taken care of. Very disappointed.
