Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Great food, great services! My hubby & I are already planning to go back! This is one of few restaurants you can get real japanese foods! I mean THE REAL one!"

  • "The service and food was excellent, I would have given the food five stars but the green tea crem brûlée did not agree with me. My wife raved all night about the key lime pie. We will be returning"

  • "Consistently the best Sukiyake. Great service, warm atmosphere, and nice sake list."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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 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!"

  • "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."

  • "The food is amazing once it finally arrives! Our waiter was really off his game, many tables seated after us were done with their meal before ours arrived. Their menu has changed and is a bit smaller than I remember, but what they make they make well!"

  • "We got the boat for 2 it was awesome !! There was a very loud group behind us but we had amazing food and service. We really loved then the food."

  • "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."

The pork tenderloin was impeccable and the sushi was great too even though I don't eat it. :) We loved the ambiance and the service was great. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking to celebrate any occasion or just for a fun time."

  • "We went as part of the Magical Dining month, and would recommend it wholeheartedly. My wife had the tuna flat bread and sushi, and they were more than generous with the portions. I don't like sushi, so it's rare to find a Japanese place we both like. However, their robata and sukiyaki were excellent, and its always fun to have food cooked at the table. The green tea creme brulee was a perfect ending. Definitely one to go back to."

  • "First time at this location. Interior is very relaxing and unique. Greeted immediately and server was patient friendless and explained everything. Sushi excellent. My sukiyaki was tasty and my wife's dinner was returned for another selection and server made this change very pleasant. Solomon came out hot and cooked perfect as order. Surprise of evening was they comped us for dinner returned yet never made any mention. Will return for sure."

  • "Excellent food, especially if you get there before 7. Combine a couple of happy hour drinks & appetizers with your dinner. Service was our only complaint--not inattentive but very slow. Once or twice we were told that the kitchen was backed up. Suggestion--if one of the diners is having your great Sukiyaki, bring the heater and pan out slightly before the others' meals so that person doesn't have to wait for it to heat up, cook, etc. while the others are eating (or awkwardly waiting)."

  • "I've had the Miso Sea Bass just about every visit to the restaurant. Now that its September and Magical Dining Month in Orlando. I was especially pleased to see the Miso Sea Bass one of the options. I was slightly disappointed when my appetizer and entree both arrived at the same time by the server. I had to joke I didn't want my ice cream just yet if he planned to rush into the kitchen to bring it out. But otherwise the meal was excellent. I will be returning and will probably continue to order the Miso Sea Bass for as long as its found on the menu."

  • "The restaurant was less than half full on a week night, but it sounded like a New York restaurant on a weekend. Perhaps it's all the hard surfaces throughout. They need an acoustical re-evaluaation. The ambiance is very nice and the food and service is outstanding. We recommended it to others and they came back with the same conclusion - the noise level was a problem. We will go back, but may opt for the outdoor dining instead."

  • "We were seated in the back room. The service was ok.There was a mistake on our order but the "wrong" item was ok. About a half hour into the meal, the restaurant staff started breaking down the room as people finshed their meals and all around us. Stacking chairs, folding tables leaving our table the only table in the middle of the floor surrounded by stacks of furniture, all the while dodging the men carrying and moving the furniture. To say I was upset would be an understatement. Apparently they planned on turning it into a dance floor. So why seat anyone in that room??? We actually had to ask for furniture to be moved to get out. We had been barricaded in! This is not an inexpensive restaurant, and this was inexcusable."
