It was my birthday. There were 7 birthdays there. My kids reminded the host and the server. Nothing was done but all around us was. They never offered me a refill on drink. Reservation was 7:30pm we didn’t sit down until 7:55 we didn’t get to order until 8:25. I had a younger guy sitting next to my daughters snap chatting and taking pictures when I asked him politely to stop pointing in our direction as his party was to the right of him he finally stopped. I asked to move seats and wasn’t given the opportunity.

It's so different every time you go you just don't know what to expect. Our waitress, for the first time ever, was OUTSTANDING! She was awesome. We never had an empty drink, was attentive and so nice. Our chef, not so much. He was nice, but not much fun like the others and didn't give us a show like normal. Not real enjoyable. Considering the amount of money you pay, it was ok at best. A little disappointing. Food was yummy.

We go to Fujiyama for most family birthdays. Food is always fabulous. We had a big party so we got 2 chefs. Both chefs were great!! Engaging. Fun. Joyful. Cooked everything great. Our server on the other hand was basically non existent. This has been our experience a lot the last few times we have been. Not always the same server, but the same experience. No one got refills on their drinks, so or alcohol. It’s not a short stay when you go to Fiji so no refills is not ok. She also brought me the wrong drink from the bar because she wasn’t really listening when I ordered. I had to go get it fixed myself. I have no idea if this Fujiyama is understaffed or if their waitresses aren’t trained on how to be a waitress, but the consistent lack of waitress service is frustrating. We are paying a lot to eat there, being well taken care of should be part of the gig. Also they add the tip to the bill. It’s really a bummer. Tips should be earned. We tip the chefs separately. We are very generous tippers, but being told what we have to tip when service is poor is frustrating. She didn’t get any extra from us and normally she would. Overall we enjoy Fujiyama. Truly. We just wish they’d figure out how to staff and train the waitresses.

I just visited Fujiyama for the first time. I did not know what to expect. They made us feel like we were a couple of revered politicians finishing up a hard day on the campaign tour. I won't throw hyperbole's for the food, but I will say everything was above average. The service-in all facets-was admirable. How do the chef's do it?! You could tell our chef put so much effort into his act and it wasn't pretentious. When I thought it was going to become predictable, he'd set us up with a joke or two.

This was a great place to enjoy a special occasion.

The food is filling and delish. It’s a fun environment. They seated us quickly but we waited quite awhile before the cook came. Once he came he was prompt but you couldn’t hear him while he was doing “his thing”.

Great food always, and a good portion, but overpriced. You are paying for the Cook and show, but it seems to have less skilled Cooks working then in the past. For entertaining your visitors one time though, it is still worth the cost.

I made reservations for 2pm because we had a large party for my daughters birthday. They sat us in a section that had two people already seated. So it made a total of 12 people where only 9 seats are normally placed. After I asked to speak to the manager they moved the other two people so we now had 10 in a place for 9. We made due. But it wasn't until 3pm that the chef finally came out. He was great and did make my daughter feel special for her birthday. The food as always was excellent. We were just disappointed in the seating arrangements and wait time considering I made a reservation.

Let me start by saying that our chef amazing! He made up for having a very poor server-Lori. Right away she gave off a vibe that said she didn’t want to be working which in turn makes the guests feel as if they are more of a burden than anything. We sat for an easy 10 minutes before even being offered water. She dropped off waters and it was another 10 minutes before she came back to get drink orders, food orders and appetizers. Needless to say there were MANY lags in our service with too much wait time. The adults in our group all noticed that the group on the other half of the table had drinks and soup/salads before we even received our drinks- that group was 2 parties and they were seated 10-15 minutes after we were. Our orders were supposedly placed before the other group but their chef came out and started cooking before ours did. She brought the soup out first and the salads a while later. Our appetizers were delivered minutes before our chef came out- in all the times we’ve gone that has never happened; they were cold when they should’ve been hot. My daughter orders her food from the kitchen and it is always delivered around the same time the chef comes out. Tonight her food was delivered after our chef was about half way done with his show. And it only was delivered after our chef had to ask another employee to find our server to check on my daughter’s food because Lori was no where to be found again just like the entire meal! But the kicker was when she delivered the check to my father in law she hovered over him as he was filling out the check and counting out the money for the bill! My husband used to work in the culinary industry and he said there is nothing more disrespectful than an employee that does that. If the gratuity had not been built in to the check then she would not have gotten a tip and we always tip our servers.

We reserved a table for a girls night out and after we were done eating they ended up telling us we had to leave. I understand after we pay our bill we shouldn't stay much longer but people were still finishing their drinks. You would think if you reserve a table you wouldn't have to leave right after you finish.
