They did not honor our reservation - waited 45 minutes for our table. The chef was really quiet, boring and didn’t engage our table which had 3 excited children under 6.

We were seated pretty quickly with a reservation to my surprise. Although there wasn't much wait there once we were seated we waited over 20 minutes for a server to even come to even come to our table. No drinks, no food orders, nothing. We watched a table that seated after us get served immediately. The manager finally came over and took our drink orders. I was highly disappointed. I've been to other locations and have never had an issue with service. Terrible .

Call before you go to the restaurant. While their food is great, we booked a table and showed up and the hostess said they were still seating people from 45 minutes earlier.

Wait for a long time. The food is OK but the chef make some improper jokes. Not a good experience overall.

Attesa di 1 ora nonostante la prenotazione alle 20.00
Alla fine della fiera si paga abbastanza da non giustificare la cena col tavolo in cpmune stretti e ammassati

So, my husband and I decided to do something out of the ordinary on valentine/birthday, so we went here for the hibatchi experience. I would recommend this place to a family of at least 8 people or you will be sitting with strangers. We were a bit in comfortable at first that we were sitting at the table WTH complete strangers, after about an hour, we were all laughing out lol.There food is average...
basic, grilled chicken, shrimps and lobster. There super bowl drink was amazing. My husband and I couldn't finish it. Your basically paying for the hibatchi experience. Prices are pretty steep, and are chef was amazing and full of humor. That's another big plus.

I read a few bad reviews but I’m glad they didn’t deter me. The place is right by public transportation and easy to get to. My chef was tired so the tricks were lackluster. The food is good. Major tip expect to smell like food for the rest of the night. Will go back again in the future. This was the Manhattan location. Lastly expect to spend a serious dollar especially if you’re on a date.
