Genji Japanese Steakhouse turns a delicious meal into an unforgettable experience thanks to its showmen chefs and high-quality fare.
Genji is absolutely delicious. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the Columbhs area and recommend it to anyone interested in trying a new hibachi spot.
Genji is by far the best Japanese steakhouse in Columbus. I have tried many others and none compare.
We had a party of 18 service and food was great! The chef that prepared the food was great and very entertaining! Everyone had a fun time!
From the time we got there we were greeted with such nice greeting from the hostess we had a party of 6 had to wait on the ex wife and her sister but they got us in as soon as they arrived the waiter was very respectful and nice and the chef was great my daughter had a great time thank you for everything
Good Japanese steakhouse experience: steak, seafood, and chicken execellently cooked in front of us in an entertaining way.
The cook/chef did not really interact with us at all. He was nice but boring.
We took our daughter there for her birthday. We mentioned that in our reservation.
They brought her fruit and sang to her and then charged us for it. $ 7.00 for a few bites of pineapple. After Spending over $200.00 between 6 of us, you have to charge for that?
Not sure we would come back.
The whole point of going to Genji was to have that interaction and fun with the chef and ppl around the table but he did not say a word. I didn't see a difference of going to restaurants where they cook food inside the kitchen. I don't want to stare at my food while it's being cooked.
We traditionally go to Genji Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate birthdays. Our birthday guy had never been there. Was very disappointed that the chef did not do ANY of the usual "show" this time. That is part of the Genji experience! Felt like we only got 1/2 our money's worth. Food was great as usual.
We have eaten here a lot. Came back for my daughter's birthday and was seated next to a bachelorette party. They kept adding people to the table which ended up at my table. They wanted to-go orders from the cook and distracted him constantly. The Chef did NO tricks, no entertainment at all because of this party. The manager kept allowing the party to get bigger at my expense. I told the waitress we were really disappointed and she apologized and said she was doing her best. The manager should have stepped in and done something. We normally have a great time here, but it will be a long while before we go back. The Chef went to another table and they were having a great time! Very sad for my daughter on her birthday.
Not a place for quiet conversation for a group around the table but great fun, very entertaining and excellent food!
The restaurant is very nice, and clean, and so are the seating areas. However our actual server was rude and not enthusiastic when we sat at her table, although she was nice to the other guests. The chef was very kind and funny, and made an entertaining performance for everyone. The food was great and you get a lot for lunch time prices. I would recommend going there, but choosing a different server. I will probably go to Beni Hana next time.
The only gripe I have is that in the comments section when I made the reservation online I noted that it was my daughter's birthday. We even walked in with gift bags. I thought they would recognize her, but no one did. Other than that, food and service was great, fast, and delicious.
They are always on their A game with food and service!
I have been here many times before and it is still my most FAVORITE place to eat. Just a few nights ago my boyfriend brought me back for an anniversary dinner and it was lovely. We had a reservation set for 7:45 and when we got there we were seated right away even though it was packed. They seated us about 15 minutes before our actual reservation time. It was great! The chef kept us entertained and cooked our food to perfection. Everyone else sitting at our table was very friendly and one even offered to take a picture of us. It's such a nice place and the food is amazing. It is super kid-friendly and I would reccomend Genji to everyone. :-)
We are from Texas, but our family lives in Columbus. Every time we visit, we take everyone for great food and a fun experience at Gengi. Make sure you make reservations. We made ours on-line and it made the entire evening more enjoyable knowing we would be seated on time.
