Everything was pretty interesting, it was our first time. Love the concept of it being a sushi restaurant mixed with Benihana style. The food is amazing and there was happy hour all day so we got a really nice experience.

Only down side was one of the female worker was a bit rude. I don't think she meant to be... but she came by asking if we still had any of their menus *it was a Tuesday night and they close in around 15 mins* we said we were keeping a menu in case we wanted to order more. She told us last call ended already and she needed our menu, so we handed it to her. My date became upset because we were never notified of last call and the table of guys near us just had some more of their friends arrive and we're still looking through the menus. After a couple minutes, our waitress came by to check on us, if everything was alright, AND if we wanted to order anything else because it would be last call.... we told her the other female worker took our menu and said last call had already past. Our waitress asked if we wanted her to go grab another one for us but there was no need anymore. We both kind of lost our appetite. We continued to finish the rest of our food and next thing we know, the female worker comes around again and this time snatching the soy sauce on our table without even asking if we were finished with using it... Our waitress had to go grab us another one.

All in all, everything from the interior, to the food, and to the service of OUR waitress was great. I put 4 stars bc it became annoying how they were rushing to close and take things away from our table BEFORE it was closing time. I don't care if they close at 10pm but still took 9:15 reservations. If I'm there eating with my date, dont be rude while trying to preclose early so that you get to go home on time.

Came here after seeing great reviews, however the food and service were very average. Not sure why the reviews are so high. Ordered the green beans, edamame, shrimp crunch roll, lettuce wraps, and vegetables with rice. All were good, but not great, definitely not good enough to come back.

We celebrated my daughters 16 th Birthday here. The teppan chef did a great job entertaining us. He was talkative and engaging. The food was well prepared. We had shrimp, halibut, chicken and steak. My daughter had a great time. We would go back again.

Came in for the brunch on Christmas Eve and it was great! Unlimited mimosas, all you can eat buffet with sushi, noodle and omelette bar, American breakfast food and steak, and friendly, attentive service. All for $25. Great experience, food, and value.

If you are looking for a whole slab of any piece of sashimi wrapped around rice this is the place for you. Asked the manager for a different selection he said rudely that it wasn't available when clearly it was listed on the menu, promptly turned around and walked away. Poor customer service skills. The only good thing about this restaurant was the waitress who was very accommodating. She also commented that many customers complain about the slices of sashimi being too thick. A very horrible dining experience for a party of four.

The women’s bathroom was under construction and the crew has simply left it in a shambles. Tools all over the place and a plastic trash bag filled with whatever in one of the sinks. Not acceptable and tarnished what was otherwise a great night. Worse was that the staff on duty didn’t seem to care despite being made aware of the problem.

Chomp rates very well with another favorite teppan style restaurant.
The difference is that Chomp is close by while the other teppan style restaurant I favor is in Pasadena.
Now that I know how good the food and the restaurant is I will be eating more at Chomp

Loved the place but it could be better maintained the chairs uncomfortable the bar area dirty and the chairs ugly. The women’s restroom beyond disgusting no tissue paper or paper towels and the night was early. Manager needs to step up game and hire people to maintain busy areas every hour in the hour, for the price you pay

MAKE RESERVATIONS! If offered, ALWAYS choose to sit at the Teppan Grill!!

The food is EXCELLENT! It seriously couldn't get any better! We both ordered combos to really have a chance to try different menu items. Combos which were served with Miso soup and salad. Everything was cooked perfectly. We send our sincere thanks to the Chef!!!!

Service was incredibly amazing! Our servers were very sweet and pleasant. We enjoyed watching the gong man yell about saki bombs. Made for quite a lively and entertaining dining experience.

If you're looking for GREAT food, superior customer service, and a little fun then look no further! Make your reservations for Chomp. We cannot wait to go back and bring our family.

I love Chomp. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and the free sake bombs for the table were a riot. We were in the mood to party so the extremely loud atmosphere was fun. Probably too much for kids and those who want somewhere quiet.

The food is pretty expensive. It was $120 for the two of us (including tip) but that isn't going to deter me from going.

Teppan grill overpriced. Low quality cut of meat. My steak was way overcooked. i ordered medium rare it was close to well by the time it was on my plate. I didnt complain but if this would have been a steak house it would have gone back. not worth the close to 40 dollar price. The show put on by the cook was mediocre at best

We went there for friends get together for Table cooking dining and show. But unluckily the cook was not experienced for this kind. He's just cooked and served without any emotion. The foods were ok but we couldn't enjoy our time for the price they charged. I don't feel I will be there again for our next dining.

This is the second time I've been disappointed with Chomp. Not so much the food but the customer service. The hostess in particular. I made a reservation and when I got there, I was placed on what seemed like a waiting list. Why the hell did I make a reservation if I'm put on a waiting list? To say I was upset is an understatement. Then they seated us next to the teppan grill and luckily for us, our server asked if we wanted to be moved. Too bad it was only a table over but still, it was not enjoyable at all. Whatever happened to customer service? Food was good but the service left a bad taste in my mouth.

We were there for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary (which we did not tell them). At 11:30 am there is no waiting. Even though there was only the two of us, our order was taken and the chief came out cooked for us. He was delightful and the food was prepared perfectly.

This was my first time at Chomp and I really enjoyed it. I took my lovely there for her Birthday and we had a great time and the food was amazing. The location is perfect, located right in the heart of Downtown Fullerton. We opted for the Teppan Grill where the chef prepares your food right in front of you. We both had the Filet . I had the Shrimp and my wife had the scallops. Everything was cooked to perfection with great flavors. The pricing was moderate. We did receive a pleasant surprise when we discovered that on Tuesdays, the second meal is 25% off the regular price. 2 small complaints: 1) I do wish that our Chef would have put on more of a "show", which I've experienced at similar establishments. 2) when I made the reservations on line I mentioned that it was my wife's Birthday and requested they sing to her or do something special. They did neither, which was kind of a bummer. But other than that, everything was great. We both highly recommend Stomp.

I like Chomp and eat there fairly regularly, but I do wish they wouldn't play the music so loud. There is already the noise from the cooking stations, the sake bomb gong, and birthday songs to contend with, so adding loud music (although I do usually like the song choices) just makes it almost impossible to have a conversation at times.

Food is great, Beer is great. Only thing that I did not like much was that I made a reservation for a table for 4 people and the hostess would not seat us because only half that party showed up at first. I would understand that if it was extremely busy. It was not busy as there were still empty tables in the serving areas. It ended up being that the hostess assumed our reservation was for the grill areas where they have a cook do a cook and show type of dining experience. Later we clarified that we were doing basic dining after they tried to sit us at the grill.

TL;DR Food is good. if you reserve a table, let them know whether its for regular dining or grill dining.

The restaurant wanted to give up our teppan grill at 6:20 due to 1 member of party not at with us upon arrival . This rule was not made known to us through open table. Then they were going to give us a table instead but not the Grill! The hostesses stated we didn't not have t seat you if y He whole party is not present ! I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. After speaking to the manager he said it's our policy that you might st all be present before you are sested!
Put a damper on our groups birthday celebration!
