Half of our meal was forgotten. And we had to have it after everyone else was done. It was incredibly loud and I couldn’t even hear my fiancé next to me. No refills on our drinks because server never came back. Cook was extremely messy and was flinging food all over the table. Worst experience.

We arrived 7&1/2 minutes early for our scheduled reservation @ 8.00 pm friday nite - It was quite busy - didn't get a seat until about 20min untill 9.00 - The table we sat at was not cleaned very well at the corner seat ( just to the left of the cook where all the grunge gets pushed away ) table top appeared quite greasy - cook had quite a comical sense of humor which we liked - the food was excellant and the other services to and from the table were on time - This was only our 2nd trip to Fujiyamas in West Olympia and like the last time, for the most part, came away very pleased ------

I've lived in Olympia for two and a half years now and never once stopped by to eat here. Last night I wanted to finally give it a try and placed a reservation for it since I guessed that the restaurant would be busy.

It wouldn't have mattered.

When I walked in the door, not only did I not get greeted, I wasn't able to figure out how to even find the wait staff. There were groups of people everywhere, all waiting, and no staff anywhere expected at the bar. I made my way to the dining area, waved down a server and asked them where we were supposed to check in. He pointed me to one of the hostesses, who were HIDING around the entrance, sitting, and talking with each other.

We checked in and the hostesses told us that they were just waiting for a table to open up. So, we took a sit and waited. As time passed by, more people came in and a group of girls that were there before us were complaining that they had also placed a reservation and had been waiting there for nearly half an hour and starving.

After ten minutes and watching the hostesses joke around and not even provide us with menus so that we can at least see what our options to eat could be, we decided to leave.

I think I'll have to wait another two and a half years to try again.

The food was outstandingly tasty, but the prices are a bit higher for what it is. The Hibachi Dinner says it comes with shrimp appetizer, in reality is only 2 shrimp. The chef, while entertaining, was terrible at distributing the portions of food. Some people got much more rice and vegetables ordering the normal amount while I ordered extra and ended up with less then everyone at the table. Don't get me started on the stupidly loud and obnoxious Bouck that the staff beat on for every celebration in the house. Take away all of these severely annoying things and my experience was perfect with great food. 2 out of 5 stars!

We go here because my kids like the hibachi grill on their birthdays. The food is fresh and flavorful. This is a fun place to go. We have had really entertaining hibachi chefs and some lackluster, as was our most recent chef. The server was very busy and very friendly. None of our soup and salad bowls were cleared and dessert was delivered with the dinner plates still on the table. This by no means ruined our evening, but is just an observation. We will likely go back because it is fun and a crowd pleaser.

It was a birthday treat for my twin daughters. The food was good, but nothing to write home about, the entertainment was good, but not amazing. They made us wait an additional 20 minutes after the check before they came and sang happy birthday to my girls. But it was a fun evening, enjoyable, nothing huge to complain about. Would go there again for a special occasion

We brought our Grandaughter for her 8th birthday.....everyone at the table sang Happy Birthday and our overall experience was good...it was embarrassing to several that the cook threw little gobs of rice at people for them to catch in their mouth, most missing....mine ended up in my long hair....Food was very good except most of my beef which was cooked last, was fat....That had not happened before...My Grandaughter had fun and enjoyed her shrimp so that was what was important...It's a fund place to take your kids or grand kids...

We have been to FujiYama’s many times and have usually enjoyed a great cooking show, great service, an overall great family dinner out. This time we went for our son’s 29th birthday and it was horrible! Our waiter cursed several times while taking our order, the Chef Park was not into a cooking show at all and had to leave the cooking station 3 times to get food that was missing, and then just was not attentive to the fact he left food on the grill while he went back to the kitchen - our scallops were rubbery and tasted like they were spoiled! Needless to say out of the 8 people that had dinner the two of us eating scallops were sick - very disappointing birthday celebration!

Our cook was not engaged with me or any other customers. If I'm spending over $50 for a meal that I could get for half that price somewhere else, I expect to be entertained. Food was okay. Chicken was a little dry. Base off of my experience, I would not recommend.

It's a show, and an experience. Our chef was great, the food was good but the spectacle is the point and they did a great job with that.

The bad part: we had a reservation, but our table wasn't ready until a half hour late. When we did get a table, we were packed in - thirteen people around one grill. We weren't the only delayed reservation, either. The lobby was FULL of people with reservations. I think they were overbooked, which is not okay.

They also play a bucket like a drum and shout whenever someone is celebrating a birthday, which wouldn't be so bad if it happens once or maybe twice a night. It was CONSTANT.

If they got a little more professional in thr front end and quit the zany family style happy birthday bellowing, this place would be fantastic.
