    What a disappointment. Started with 2 appetizers, one of which was straight out of a frozen bag. Same we can get at a local diner. I have to say that the squid was very good. Spider roll, more breading on the crab that crab itself. Steak for dinner. Wife's was 3/4 fat. Maybe got 4 or 5 bites of meat. Mine, I ordered medium and could have gotten the same flavor by just burning a piece of toast in the toaster at home. When we noted this to the waitress, she totally shut down. No manager, just the check thrown on the table. Would have pressed to see the manager but the noise level was so high, after such a terrible meal we couldn't wait to just cut our losses, get out and learned not to come back.

    I had a reservation for 12 people for 6pm for my son's birthday. I had also called beforehand to make sure I could bring a cake that we could celebrate with afterwards (and was told we could). We didn't have our table ready at 6pm, and all 12 of us had to fit in a tiny waiting room with others. We got our table, and had a great experience. However, when the meal was over, a hostess came to tell us our reservation block was almost over. I told her once someone brought our cake, we would leave. This took another 10 minutes, and I felt like we were rushed out of there. Our server, Kristen, was outstanding, as was our cook. Unhappy when the hostess came to tell us to hurry on up.... especially since we didn't even get our table on time.

    The filey mignon was out of this world! My husband and I are not big raw sushi lovers, we usually go for tempura however the bartender (who was very good) suggested we try the honeymoon roll which had both raw and tempura. It was to die for and will definitely get it the next time we go. The reason for the 4 stars is because I did not care for my food swimming in the sauces the chef had put on. I'd rather my stuff sauteed in it and then the rest of the sauce be taken away. But overall, great place and great food and we will definitely be back!!!!

    This was our third time to Osaka in the last two years and food is always pretty good. My wife and son had Hibachi and I had sushi. The Hibachi chef was ok, I would say a 7 out of 10 on the entertainment scale. I tipped him $8. Thier food was good cooked well, flavorful, and a little salty.. We also had the calamari appetaizer and spring rolls which were both excellent. My sushi was very good, but I've had better. It could have been a littel more fresh.. I had a Kirin in a bottle whcih was very nice and cold. After which I ordered a Sapporo on draft and was dissapointed because it was warm.. Kind of killed the experience for me if I am honest. Overall this place is very pricey. May return for special ocassion.. May not

    Our first visit and we found this restaurant, clean, fun, entertaining and the food was fresh and perfectly cooked. When ever we go to an ethnic restaurant we always look for the total experience. This is so minor but the music was modern American pop in such a specialize place it would have been nice to hear even pop Japanese music (it also might of kept us longer??). Our bill came to $100 for two people including 20% tip and 4 drinks. My husband and I enjoyed it very much and will bring friends to enjoy the Hibachi experience next time.

    The Teppanyaki service at Osaka is well done. The décor is pleasant, the noise level was never intrusive. The chef was funny and entertaining. The food was well prepared and delicious. The only down note is having to choose either miso soup or salad. Every other teppanyaki I've been to for dinner service offed both as part of the meal.

Service was effective and food was delivered to the table quickly. Intresting sushi menu. Not the same old stuff... Can't wait to go back to try the Hibachi.

    Yum! Great and unusual Sushi. Saki assortment for the knowledgeable. Typical and unusual Japanese meals including delicious Hot Stone Bowl. Our husbands shared Saki, the wives chose cocktails. My ginger cosmo (don't remember the official name) was unique (not sweet! Worth trying. I'd order it again.) My friend preferred her Apple-tini type drink to mine. All four of us enjoyed our meals: a sushi platter including urchin, the Tofu and Veggie Hot Bowl, a teriaki and another veggie sushi platter. We chose this restaurant because it's half way between our homes - 30 minutes distant for each. We vowed to meet more often at Osaka! Worth the drive to meet friends!

    We celebrated my daughter's 3lst birthday. It was a surprise. Her friends drove up from Philly to meet us there. We had a whole hibachi table and the seating allowed us all to see each other and chat easily. The chef was amazing. He was so friendly, interacted with us especially the birthday girl. Funny too. The food was excellent. Salmon was perfectly cooked with this nice sweet sauce on it. Prices were so reasonable. We will be back. Thank you for serving us.

    I had never been to Osaka or the shopping complex it's in previously, but plan for time for parking - I wound up parking a 10 minute walk away several parking lots over as there are multiple popular restaurants in this same complex. We made reservations, and they were running behind but said they would seat us as soon as possible, so we chose to sit at the bar instead. Despite the place being crowded and very busy, our food came out quickly and was excellent. I would definitely go there again, but I'm not one for crowds, so I would avoid peak times.

    I want to start out by saying the food was delicious here. I would definitely recommend the place. As far as a place for a date, don't expect it to be intimate. I get that hibatchi tables seatvs bunch of people but the fact that they jam in there I believe 7 hibatchi tables in such a small room makes it super loud. Also the service was nice but very slow. Idk if it was duecto the fact it took them forever to get through the amount of people or if they were short staffed. Overall the food made up for the experience and I would certainly recommend trying it out.

  • Been three times with mixed results
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    My wife and I have been to Osaka three times, sitting twice on the Hibachi side and once in the restaurant. The Hibachi experience has really been mixed. Both times I ordered filet and lobster. One time it was great, but the most recent time the steak was anything but filet. It was tough, full of fat and not edible. One time our table side chef was great, and the next time, mediocre at best. The serving sizes are not very large compared to the price you pay, but at least you never have to worry about leaving feeling overly full. Went with 10 people so filling a table is fun. On the restaurant side the sushi was fabulous. Definitely a more relaxed atmosphere (as you would expect) versus the hibachi.
