    It's beautiful to dine in or out. The atmosphere is great, the music is not as lout therefore you can have a conversation with your friends. As a group we sat outside. The service was very poor, the waiter didn't even refill anything. The godiva cake was overpriced ($8) and it was nothing godiva about it, terrible. I would return only for a drink to sit outside otherwise it's not for me.

    Wow - smallest pieces of sushi we've ever encountered. 3 pieces made the size of what we would get elsewhere (and we eat sushi at a lot of places around the country). The worst part was the server. She didn't even bring our food, another server did. While she visited two tables nearby (one for over 15 minutes chatting), she never came back to us after taking our food order and delivering our drinks. We had to walk to the hostess station and ask for our check. When I said that everything was horrible, the manager came over. He comped our 2 drinks but nothing else. The right thing to do would have been to comp the whole check.

    I had the veggie sushi and it was amazing. The waitress was very attentive and we never had to wait long for drink refills. I loved how the restaurant was decorated. It felt like you were there for an experience. The outside patio looked very nice and I would love to eat out there when the weather is a little cooler.

    My fiancé, our 2 year old daughter, and I recently visited for our monthly Dinner Date. We were early for our reservation, and were willing to wait for a dining room booth, but they seated us in a "VIP-style" booth in the bar area. If it had been just my fiancé and I, I would have thought nothing of it, but it was odd to us to seat a young child in a bar (although, it is very tasteful). Our waitress was slightly overbearing, and saying "no thank you" to a water refresh with a mouthful of a roll is not an attempt I'd like to make again. She worked for her tip, and it was sadly obvious. We left a generous one, just because I know how it is (I waitressed/delivered pizzas through college). Overall, the food was fantastic as always.

    The food is delicious and Rangetsu is one of few restaurants that offers true prawns. They don't give you heaping portions. So expect to spend a good amount if you're starving

    I made a reservation for my fiance's birthday a week in advance. . It took a little longer to be greeted (The restaurant was not busy when we arrived for our 6:30 reservation)but that's not really a big deal. But when our waitress greeted us our experience went downhill pretty quickly. The waitress was aloof and very casual for a fine dining restaurant. When asking her about the menu she could not explain ingredients and certain dishes. The kicker was when she checked her cell phone at the table saying "Oh let me just see what 'they' want." I've been waited on better at Chili's. I'm glad we came during happy hour for cheaper sushi rolls cause I would have had a fit paying 25 bucks a plate with service like that. Better service, please!

    Loved everything about Rangetsu, the food, atmosphere and service was phenomenal! The management was very attentive, one our our appetizers was extremely delayed and one of the managers came by to apologize and to advise us that he would take the charge off our bill. And the best thing is that the appetizer was worth the wait! The only issue is parking, not much dedicated to the restaurant.

    I had made reservations for 6:30pm and even though we had ordered within a decent time after we sat down, we had to wait an hour before our dinner came. We were told its a very busy night for sushi, we received no apologies from the waitress. To say the least I was disappointed, because several people who came in after we did were already eating by the time our dinner came. Even the Manager walked by our table several times while we were waiting and didn't say anything.

    Go for the experience of Japanese culture and food. This isn't the place to have someone make an onion volcano and flip s shrimp tail in a pan on your head. It was a wonderful and fun dining experience. Service started out slow, but management proved to be accommodating and very concerned that we weren't pleased.

    We were in Orlando for a graduation celebration. A friend who is a chef recommended Rangetsu, having recently dined there. We therefore had high expectations, which were exceeded by our experience! A menu with a wide variety of choices. Very appetizing daily specials. Great wine/beverage list. Attentive service. We will certainly return next time we are in Orlando.

    We sat outside and our waitress was very attentive and even the waitress at the table nearest us seemed very attentive as well...I noticed how sweet she was to their baby who was constantly looking for her. The sake tasted different but I was pleased with it, my man wasn't pleased with it. That, however,  didn't change his opinion of the food. The side salad came out promptly. I don't eat slow and I started on the salad immediately but the sushi was out before I finished. We ordered the dancing eel, volcano and the sweetheart rolls. We like sweet rolls and the sweetheart roll was like dessert. I can't stress enough how good these rolls were! The key lime pie was also phenomenal. We are very pleased with this restaurant! We'll be back!

    The decor was nice. It was clean. The food was decent, not great. But out waiter was literally the worst I've ever had (and I used to be one so I'm usually understanding if it's busy or something). He blamed everything on other people (including not bringing us menus, forgetting to get drinks, and not refilling our drinks) and generally was a poor server. We had to ask him multiple times for things and he took forever to get back to us. It took an hour and a half to get our food from the time we were sat. I would never go back to this place.

    My husband and I enjoyed a lovely date night at Rangetsu. We tried the cheese gratin appetizer which was delicious and delightfully cheesy. For our main meal we enjoyed the Tiger, Philadelphia, Mexican and Sunrise sushi rolls. The were all good but the sunrise, with it's lemon slices on top, was our favorite. For dessert we had the green tea creme brulee. It was also very good. We found it less buttery and creamy than traditional creme brulee, with a more gelatinous texture. But still quite good with a marvelous caramelized crust and homemade caramel on the bottom. We don't eat out often because we are usually disappointed with the quality of restaurant food. Rangetsu was a pleasant surprise. We would certainly return and recommend it.

    Our party of 8 ordered a variety of dishes and all were very good. The Shabu Shabu was outstanding, as were the several fish and eel rolls that we ordered. The Conch and Miso soup was excellent but they still should have informed us prior to the order that it was prepared in the style of New England Clam Chowder. The restaurant earned high grades and we will be back.

    Sadly, can't say we had a great experience. Went there with a group of friends. While the restaurant itself is pleasantly decorated, they destroyed the ambience with the music (techno). Food was OK to excellent. Get the chicken skewers cooked on the lava rock - excellent. Calamari was not good for a Japanese restaurant - tough. Warning, the tap is undrinkable - high sulfur. Our main server was decent. However, the person who cooked the sukiyaki was not good. After initially preparing the dish, he disappeared. It started to burn. We turned the burner off. When he came back, he acted all huffy that we'd turned the burner off. We explained that it was beginning to burn. He copped an attitude, dumped some water into the pot, and stomped off.

    We aren't huge Asian food fans, but this restaurant may have changed that for us. The staff was knowledgable and able to help us understand the menu options. They were friendly and attentive. The outdoor lounge is amazing! Lots of comfy couches and heated torches to make even cool evenings inviting. The My Bento was a great way to sample all different types of food if you're not sure what you want. We loved the Tuna Flatbread. Another great savings is to go during Happy Hour with a good selection of $5 appetizers and house wines.

    This was our second visit. Staff is friendly and helpful. Owner always checks on you. We like the Sukiyaki, which is cooked in a lava pot on the table. No Japanese cooks tossing shrimp in the air and clashing knives. The Green Tea Creme Brûlée is exceptional. Only complaint was the noise level. There was one large group celebrating the holidays quite loudly. Didn't experience this on our first visit. Definitely will return and maybe try something different.
