    The Hostess that was working on March the 2nd was not friendly at all. She never said hello, welcome, or smiled. We had a reservation at 7:00 and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Everything else was fine.

    Sat at "table 5" where the exhaust fan didn't work. It was MISERABLE smoke, and it was a birthday celebration. We were coughing and fanning. It was a bit disappointing since we had made reservations and they could have sat us at a different table to begin with. Our chef and waiter were amazing and the food was great, but that smoke nearly killed us. My daughter had to go out to the car to retrieve her inhaler it was so bad. I would recommend to a friend, as long as it wasn't at that table. Would highly recommend chef David and waiter Q.

    The waitress that we hwd at our table was very rude. She started off being nice but once it was time to go, i asked for a to go sprite and i was waiting on it for 10-15 minutes. She kept walking around looking at my but still didn’t bring a drink. She walked to the back 4 times before she brought it and didn’t even give me a straw.. i asked for one and she said you’re going to have to wait i don’t have any, rudely. i don’t play those types of games with people at all. She was short wore makeup and had dark brown hair. Couldn’t get her name but she needs to get a talked to because that was not okay.

    This place is usually a hit for us, but the chef under seasoned to the food, gave me basically no vegetables, way over cooked the mushrooms, and cleaned the grill with a very dirty towel, which made the whole area stink very badly before we even started eating. Very unappetizing. It was busy, and that’s understandable, so they were running late. No problem. Service and attention was slightly slow, but capable. Probably everything would’ve been overlooked except for that disgusting dirty towel that stunk so bad.

    Made the reservation for 730 waited about 2 to 3 minutes and they got us seated and we had our chef cooking our food and serving our plates within the hour! Great service, great food I will say make sure your server knows your order clearly because we looked at our ticket and it was about $40 more than what we ordered by all means I’m not cheap but I’m not gonna pay for anything that I didn’t order so we had to get that right besides that it was an amazing service. The server was great & it was busy so I understand, just take a look at your receipt before you pay other than that definitely recommend

    This place used to be great when Mr. Shapur ran it. Now, it’s tired and the chefs don’t care. The ventahood at our table was running but didn’t work. Steam and smoke blasted me and others in the face the whole time the chef was cooking. I was coughing constantly. Chef Linh made no effort to correct the situation and even thought it was funny. Service was adequate. Sushi wasn’t cold like it used to be. I suspect more equipment issues. Shapur would’ve never let these things happen. Prices have skyrocketed as well. Frank Fletcher should turn his attention to Benihana or get Shapur back in there.

    The food was great- no complaints there and the restaurant even chilled my birthday cake in the fridge for me. The issue started with the hostess when I arrived for my birthday dinner. I made a reservation at the beginning of January for the 24th (my birthday) for 10 people for 6:30pm. I informed her that there was a last minute change and there would only be 9. She asks me if the entire party was there, and I said yes. She then proceeds to tell me that all the tables are booked- which makes no sense because if the table has been reserved, why wasn’t it blocked off some time before 6:30 pm? I’ve worked as a hostess before and common knowledge (so I thought). I asked her how long the wait was- and this is when she caught an attitude to with me. She looked at me crazy and responded 20-30 minutes. Absolutely unacceptable! What’s the point of having a reservation then? I told her that it didn’t make any sense, but ok. It was closer to 7pm when someone else came out and took me and my party to our table. In the future, it would be great for the hostess to look at the reservations each day to ensure a smooth flow of the restaurant.
