I was a little disappointed in the service. It took about 25 minutes to get our drinks. And about just as long to get our sushi. The shrimp tempura was soggy as though it sat under a heat lamp too long. The food was good overall the Onion soup was phenomenal. It was our first wedding anniversary and I felt that the overall experience was only ok.

The sushi here is really great...however, the atmosphere is a real let down. The decor was initially very sleek and impressive, but they’ve let it go. There’s a big TV in th main dining room and it’s playing movies? Not very classy....hosts look like they hate their job. So many just gathered at the front looking bored. And it doesn’t have that friendly inviting feel that happens at better restaurants. It’s a real shame because as I said, the sushi is wonderful.

We get there and there are 5 people at the host stand. I couldnt tell who worked there and who didnt since no one was wearing a uniform. Some were dressed casual and some had dress shirts. We we're taken to out table and the table wasn't wiped down. Sat there and we were going to ask to move to a different table since it was dirty, but the waiter never showed up and I had to get up to the host stand and ask. We were then re seated, and sat there for at least 15 minutes, and the waiter had the gall to ask if we needed more time to look at the menu. Never apologized for the wait either. Needless to say, we were upset about the whole thing. Soup came in cold also. Wouldn't recommend

The chef and the food were amazing.
The server was awful
Didn’t clear the dishes.
Didn’t bring the chef the food to prepare on time.
Never asked us if we wanted a second drink.
Didn’t bring dessert. We had to ask for it.
She wasn’t worth the 18% they tack on.

We brought our kids and their spouse/boyfriend for my husbands birthday. Cocktails were very good. Miso soup was more of a brown broth and was so salty we could not enjoy it. Our salad was swimming in ginger dressing. I had the lobster and steak. The lobster had no flavor. My husbands filet was over cooked and tough. We spent $300 for a less than enjoyable dinner. We have eaten here many many times over the last couple of. years but the last 2 times hace been very disappointing.

The food was ok, the chef at our table was significantly less animated than others in times past - and burned many parts of food, including rice!!! We had younger kids with us to whom we had built up the experience; so this was disappointing for them (and us! We like the show!!) The waitress was prompt with drinks and very friendly, but the bussing service was horrific. We felt very claustrophobic at the table, which is strange given the extremely open atmosphere at the restaurant.

2.5 to 3 Star review at best.

Though we did have a late reservation (9:00 pm) they could have told us that the service would be slow/not as good, and we would have left. Plain and simple. No hard feelings. But they sat us down anyway, and we left 3 hours later feeling like we had just wasted $150. #1: it took a WHOLE HOUR to get our orders in and get started on the hibachi grill. #2 the hibachi chef was totally exhausted (reasonably) and did not entertain us at all. #3 they messed up different items of different people on our whole table. #4 the meat tasted very old. I know the experience we had was not up to par as the restaurant's standard; however, you could have told us and we could not have wasted money; no matter how much it is.

We are new to area so I asked around and neighbor recommended this place. It’s where my daughter wanted to go for her birthday dinner. Seated right away, service was great. We were asked about soup and salad starters bc we did hibachi and with kids we even had some changes to the order that were done without any hesitation and correctly. Not always the case so I was prepared for that. The hibachi chef was friendly and entertaining for us. He was really good food was great and plentiful. Even better I was the check because it was much less than what I expected. Apparently on Monday’s it’s family night!! Extra bonus for us. So we will definitely be back to enjoy again!!

The overall atmosphere was pretty bad -- not a well maintained restaurant, may as well have been a warehouse. The hibachi tables were pretty dirty and weren't as nice as some other Japanese Steakhouses 20 minutes away. The chef was alright, but the table service from the person who takes drinks and app orders was awful. I wouldn't eat here again.

Great food, service was poor. Waiter barely came around to replenish drinks, had to ask for a bag and box. Also it’s ridiculous to charge 50cents for side yum yum sauce after paying $160 for dinner. Come on guys, your food is so good but you need to work on your service

The food and the chef were wonderful. Our waitress was absent minded, and although I reminded her it was my birthday several times she still did not give me 50% off my meal. I had to get my Sushi app myself, she had it made wrong incorrect then forgot to grab it from the Sushi bar.
The quality of the food was awesome.

Went for Father’s Day. Service took forever! Over an hour to get a chef to cook at the table even though we had reservations. I will not be surprised if this place closes again and soon. The place was half empty on a Saturday night.

Genji is a wonderful Japanese Steakhouse. Our previous visit was our 5th, and best yet. Our hibachi chef was fun and very friendly. Food was great! Although it is a pricier meal, it is fresh, delicious, and made in front of you. We always come here to celebrate my wife’s Birthday and the end of the school year (she’s a teacher). We will be back for many years to come.
