    I made reservations online for a hibachi table for a time slot that was available. I arrived 5 minutes early and was told there would be a 10 minute wait. Ten minutes later a large group was taken to a hibachi table and me & my date were left standing there. I was told it would about 15 more minutes. The host said I could have an immediate seat in the dining area so i would not have to wait. The point for my night there was to take my date to the hibachi table where he had never been. We settled for the dining area because i was hungry. On the hibachi side it was loud, groups were celebrating birthday's, chanting, yelling, screaming... and it echos in the restaurant so that was disturbing. I was very disappointed with this experience.

    Good is cooked to your specifications, always too much for me, but if you have a big appetite you should be happy with what is served. Sushi is also great. A bit pricy, but in my opinion worth the money.

    I always love going to this Mount Fuji location. They have great sushi and customer service! I've been to the other locations and the food is definitely better here. I tried the hibachi here for the first time recently and our chef was great and the food was delicious. Whatever you do, save room for mochi ice cream!

    We visit this restaurant about half of our weekly date nights. They are often really busy, and have never missed a beat. We would definitely recommend them for couples (especially if you like to eat!), large groups, and even kiddos. Worth the extra $$$ vs. simple 'eating out'.

    Although this restaurant is part of a small chain, it feels like our own, neighborhood restaurant. The management has been the same for several years and several of the waiters recognize us on sight. Try the hibachi for large groups or the dining room for excellent sushi - the portions are large, fresh and tender. We keep going back for the food, the service and the value.

  • New Year's Eve

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    My husband and I wanted to go out for dinner for New Year's Eve. Decide to try a new restaurant and finally decided on Mt Fuji. We love hibachi cooking and that was the main reason of choosing this restaurant. While they have three different dining methods (sushi bar and regular dining), we were very pleased that we chose the hibachi. Also was very glad we made reservations. The place was packed but the host had us sitted within 10 minutes of our arrival. The table sits 9-10 so it would make a great place for a large group. There was so much delicious courses (soup, salad, shrimp and rice, and the main dish). Everything was great. I would highly recommend the steak and shrimp. Would I go there again? You bet!

    My family and I went to celebrate a birthday and we had a fantastic evening. The hibachi chefs are fun and make sure your food is made the way you like it, the servers are attentive, and the environment is nice. They also make a wonderful birthday treat for the birthday person. I love Mt. Fuji and will definitely be back for more.

    Not only did Mt Fugi forgot to apply open table so i did not receive my points which was why we went there the chicken was over cooked and dry. The restaurant was far from being full and the service was not good. One good thing they did do was give my parents a large plate that said "Happy Anniversary" with a small sundae on the plate. My family will not be going back.

    Six of us decided to get together for my birthday and we had a hankerin' for sushi. None of us had ever been to Mt. Fuji, so we decided to try it. It turned out to be a very good decision! I made the reservation online at Opentable, and the restaurant had a table ready for us. The service was great, food presentation and taste were amazing! We all plan to return! Thanks for a great birthday dinner!

  • The service was absolutely
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/16/2013
    The service was absolutely terrible. It took 45 minutes after the waitress took our order for us to receive an appetizer. I asked the waitress to bring the manager over so I could complain about the slow service and she didn't make it to our table until 30 minutes later. Then we got some lame excuse about the cooks being overwhelmed in the back. I don't see how this was possible considering the restaurant was half full. We got to the restaurant at 7:30 pm and didn't leave until almost 9:30 and there were only two of us. The manager didn't seem to care very much about the slow service and she made no attempt to make it right by discounting our tab. In addition to this, the ambiance was not good either if you are planning a romantic evening.

  • Don't Bother Making a Reservation
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 12/29/2012
    Don't bother making a reservation, you will wait just like the walk-ins for a table. My group, including my 90 year old grandma, stood in a tiny and cramped waiting area for 25 minutes after our reservation time. The waiting area needs to be expanded before and reservations acknowledged property before I'd refer someone. BY THE WAY, THEY DO NOT ACCCEPT OPEN TABLE CHECKS. The hibachi is overpriced, but does taste good, and the chefs are alot of fun(partially made up for the initial irritation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/14/2012
    We had a 6:45 reservation and were not seated until after 7:15. The waiting area is way too small. While you are waiting and more people are pouring in to dine on a busy Friday night the people waiting to be seated actually overflow into the dining area and are on top of the diners. I felt uncomfortable, I can only imagine how the people eating felt. However, once we sat down and began our meal the food was good. I was disappointed that the hibachi chef nor any of the other staff asked if we were celebrating anything as we were there for my sons birthday. Other restaurants will generally ask when seating a party of our size. We had to let them know. Overall, the food was good and my son had a good dinner.

    Mt. Fuji is ok, the only reason we go there is its close to the house. For the price's they charge you can go to a much nicer place in Wash park like Sushi Den or Izakay Den which is about the same price but the food quality and service are night and day.
