    The food was good but the service was extremely slow. It took an hour to get my drink from the bar, and the chef took even longer to come to the table. I put on the reservation that it was my 7 year old daughter’s birthday, also told the server and chef. They sang happy birthday to the tables all around us and never sang to her.

    Service has gone down hill quite a bit. Sat with several empty plates in front of me and empty beverages for some time. Walked back and forth and never cleared them or asked for refills. Chicken was over cooked but the rest was great! Never offered our ice cream, had to ask for it. With the 20% service fee now added on and service now pretty bad, we will head over to Osaka.

    Chef did not do all the tricks that I have previously seen before; its upsetting because it was my parents first time and they had to watch other tables/chefs do tricks that ours didn't. He had no enthusiasm at all. Made the food super salty, burned out veggies, and having to wait for him to cook for us and the other people that were our table just took forever. We were already 4 plus the other 3 customers was just just too many because we all had big orders from steak, shrimp and lobster tails. Being served one item at the time while he cooked the rest of the food was not pleasant. By the time the rest of the food arrived to your plate the one from earlier was already cold. The waiter was not that pleasant either. Just trying to get his attention to bring refills, figure out if they had the available desert we requested and or bringing the bill took forever. He even charged us wrong amount same with the other customers and we had to mention it to bring it too his attention. He fixed them but you had to wait more time. We just wanted to leave. I've been here twice and it was an enjoyable experience but but this 3rd time with family that hasn't been here before was simply a bad experience. Mainly because our chef was not trained well. He was friendly but not knowledgeable with how much seasoning was enough as well as the tricks he did which were sad and boring. Nothing much happened.

    We had a reservation and showed up on time. After an hour and fifteen minutes, they still didn’t start our food. I found a manager and asked if we could get our order to go and we came back later to pick up our order. It included a $32 service charge even though we did not get service. The to-go order was lackluster. I feel ripped off and will never go there again. Absolutely unacceptable. It wasn’t a good value and nobody seemed to care.
