I really had a wonderful time as did my guests. My major complaint is that I made a reservation for 7:00 and being that I had my 94 year old mother in law with me, expected to be seated at 7:00. We had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated, it was a wonderful experience!

The food was fine. We ordered off the regular menu and did not sit at one of the hibachi tables. Still, the smell from the cooking tables was overwhelming. We were just staying at the hotel in the same building and ate there for the convenience. I would not go back again. Both the hotel and the restaurant were mediocre.

The food is always good if you are a fan of hibachi. Unfortunately, the service was a little lacking as I had to literally chase after servers to come bring us more alcohol after our first drink order. Even with the first drink order, I had to repeatedly remind the server to bring us one of the beers that we had ordered, which it took 4 times asking the question to bring the beer. Other than this, the rest of our visit was great as usual.

The cook wasn't in the mood at all. Curiously, rice was the last thing he served. When I got rice on my plate the lobster had been there for 20minutes. The only have a couple sauces and they are not tasty. Soup is also a down.

Place is definitely dated. We went later on a Friday night and the servers seemed worn out. There were not a lot of other customers in the restaurant at the time and had to wait a long while for drinks. Our chef was really good though. Enjoyable, but could use a facelift.

Bisuteki was a perfect place to celebrate a birthday. We love sitting at the hibachi table where your food is cooked in front of you. The chefs are excellent! Our dinner was so delicious and their cocktails are creative and excellent.

Eating at Bisuteki is not just having a meal, it’s an enjoyable experience!!

Made a reservation for 6.30 pm, was only seated at 7 pm. Asked the staff why it was taking so long to seat us. His answer was, everyone here is waiting, you have to wait. And I asked, what is the point of making a reservation if I have to wait? His answer was, the table before you is not done. I cannot chase them away until they leave.

Back to my original question, what's the point of making a reservation then??????

Secondly, the restaurant name is a misnomer. Nothing about it is Japanese, except for the few sushi items on the menu. It is not a steakhouse either, it is a Teppanyaki restaurant. None of the chefs seem to be Japanese, they sounded like they are from China. Not even the staff looked Japanese. Never mind about that, the food was cooked with the same soy sauce throughout. Meat, seafood, veggies, were all fried with the same sauce. I think I can do a better job cooking... Only the fried rice was good.

I wouldn't return.

I was not that happy with what I got. The waiter seemed to give me and my friends bad attitude and rushed us most of the time. Also, one thing that I did not like was that they could not split the check. I was struggling to divide the check into a party of 8 with a total of around $225 on my birthday.

Don't make the same mistake that I made of ordering sashimi. It was disgusting. Some were a bit mushy and tasted the same even though they were different kinds of fish. But worst of all, one piece of fish tasted moldy. It was inedible. I complained to the server and all she said was tell me what kind of fish it was! A complete waste of money if you order sushi/sashimi. I did not try anything else but from this experience do not plan to return. The place was pretty busy for a Monday night (yes, I know, risky ordering sashimi on a Monday), but I was staying at the hotel and it was raining outside so was essentially a captive of my circumstances.

This is our “favorite “ spot for special events and tonight it was anything but! The meal was below average as our filet mignon was downgraded to just below stew meat. Very disappointed. Even mentioned it to the server but our displeasure fell on deaf ears. Hoping to return to the “favorite” spot for a return to the quality we have been accustomed to.
