My husband and I, and two other couples decided to try this before the Jazz game. We each ordered a sushi roll Per couple, and each couple shared the dinner special that came with the lobster and fillet. That was plenty of food for all of us. It has a fun atmosphere and great service!

The hostess made my experience pretty bad. I had made a reservation for 24 initially at 8:30 for my best friends birthday. The day of I got a phone call from a guy who was wanting to confirm my reservation and he asked if i'd like to move my reservation to 9 and I said that'd be great! He said he moved it and that everything was confirmed. It was 8:45 and my friends and I were headed to the restaurant and I got another call from a female hostess and she advised me that we were late and we can't do this again in the future. I told her we weren't late because my reservation was at 9. She said it shows 8:30 and I told her that I spoke with someone today and they advised that they changed it and we were good to go. Her exact words were" Well I don't know who you talked to but it says 8:30 here so next time make sure to give 15 minute notice if you're going to be late" I thought it was rude and unprofessional. Once we got there she was quite rude as well when it came to our party getting seated. All in all the food was great and the service upstairs was outstanding, but the hostess was terrible. Especially since she's the first person that people interact with when entering the restaurant she should be more cautious when interacting with customers.

Great food as always. Just tried the spicy chicken fried rice and it is the best. That's my go-to food item from now on.

Hibachi steak was overdone and tough - otherwise everything and everyone was great!

Great food, fun to watch it being prepared. Was quite noisy and parking was difficult for a Sunday due to the parking garage being closed - no mention of that on the website. Overall a good experience.
