    I requested a high chair when I made our reservation but upon being seated no high chair was provided. My husband went in search of one and placed it. The bathrooms had no changing pad either. Apart from this, the main disappointment was that the chef cooked everything at once which is not usually the case. The food was overcooked because of this. The experience this time around was quite disappointing.

    Zach was the best chef! He had loads of energy and kept the conversation lively and light. It really enhanced the dinner experience.

    Every time we give this location a chance it is disappointing. Went for my birthday yesterday. The hostess didn't even look up at me when we checked in. She was chewing her gum loudly the whole time. We had a 530 reservation and didnt get seated til almost 10 minutes later (the other group was also there waiting to sit at the same table). Then it took forever to order and the chef didn't come out until around 620 p.m. I guess they like to skimp on cleanliness and think its okay to serve uncleaned shrimp to guests like we don't know the difference. It takes barely any time to clean the shrimp digestive tract out of the shrimp. They only do it for the jumbo shrimp orders. Pretty nasty. The floors were dirty and the service very slow. I think that if you come for your birthday and you use one of their birthday rewards the purposefully treat you less of a guest. We won't be back.

    We had our lunch during a very quiet period but were treated great by the staff, services, and chefs. Would definitely go again.

    Chef cook experience was eh. Not that exciting and much energy. The chef cook next to us was very energetic and kids wanted him. They weren’t happy with the low to no energy person we got.

    This location wasn’t at its best. I had requested two different chefs and totally did not get either. I wanted a good showmen for my kids as well as to celebrate my birthday, and we got a chef that said maybe 15 words during cooking. Also our reservation was for 7:15pm and we checked in at 7pm, we didn’t get seated until 8:20. The server doesn’t come around too often so stop them before you don’t see them again for a while. Also we were given plastic utensils to eat with. This place runs you about $500 for 4 kids and 2 adults. So yeah I need proper untensils. We go to a similar place like this called Shogun and it is better service and chefs are good and the price is about 1/3 cheaper. I will not be coming back to this location again. I will keep going to my old spot for sure.

    I can't begin to start thanking Leo (chef) and Joseph (server) for an amazing first time for my parents! The couple times I've been here before was a very quiet chef and hardly available server but today my god... if only i could give them a standing ovation for the performance, humor, cooking, and courtesy from the server and hosts! Yea it's loud inside but what dinner and a show is quiet? Leo! DUDE!!! i hope i got the name right bc YOU ARE PHENOMENAL! My mom who's usually quiet had such a great time thanks to you! Enough to ask if the next time she came if we could have Leo as our chef again lol Joseph! You were awesome! I don't think I've ever heard a server check in AND apologize for a missing drink! New servers in training! Take note from this guy!!!!! I seriously hope the next time we go we get Leo AND Joseph!!! $400 well spent!!!
