Our birthday group had dinner to celebrate my birthday. Our Chef Paul is a EXCELLENT Chef with a great sense of humor and fun personality. Our food was delicious; We had a fun and awesome time. Overall great experience.
My granddaughters love House of Japan. We celebrated one of their birthdays on our last visit.
A great experience that we would come back for thank you very much
This was my third visit to House of Japan. Good service and food, as expected.
The restaurant really rushes you through your meal. Line up to get to your table, hurry up and order, eat your salad, down your soup, watch the chef, pay your bill and get out of the way. If you don't leave the table right away expect glares from the staff until you do. We have been to many Japanese Steak houses before, and never experienced such behavior before.
The sole was as delicious as ever! The food is great and we were seated with a really wonderful family. Always great at HOJ.
Fairly slow service, chef was competent but didn't perform many theatrics. Rice was mushy, proteins were decent but not overwhelmingly outstanding. Main dining room was uncomfortably warm.
Always a fun time watching your meal being prepared. Our chef was great - kept everyone entertained while still serving an excellent meal. Filet and shrimp were both perfect!
All in all it was a very nice Mother's day dinner. It was one of the better Japanese Steakhouse experiences in Columbus. We have been to at least 4 to 5 other similar restaurants and this one held up just fine.
This may have gotten a higher rating but the service was very rushed. It took forever for them to take our drink orders and meal orders. Then the chef rushed to cook our food and after about 15 min we were brought our bills and to go containers. We weren't even done eating . Wont be going their again.
This was a great outing. Despite the fact that there were some technical issues with our grilling station the chef did an amazing job getting our meal cooked and management came to apologize several times and provided a discount for our dinner. We will be sure to visit again. The food was both excellent and plentiful.
Food service was way too slow. Felt terrible seeing that live food performance on our table was way too small and not happening as we saw on other table. Price of food didn't do justice to the food served. Order dinner entree of shrimps and chicken and our plate was full of rice and little shrimps n chicken. Funny that we could actually count how many pieces were there in plate. Terrible.
We made a reservation for Mother's Day and when we were seated they were putting 3 people on each end which is usually only for 2 people and the side had 7 seats plus a high chair which is usually only 4 people. Absolutely ridiculous!
Took our mothers there for Mother's Day. The restaurant was very busy and, although we had a reservation, I was prepared for a long wait. I was pleasantly surprised to be seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. The food was very tasty and the service was good.
We took our toddler here to celebrate our birthdays and all three of us really enjoyed it.
This was my second visit to this establishment since coming back to Columbus. House of Japan is always a home run choice! I love it, family and friends love it when we go; food is amazing every single time. The chefs keep us cracking up all throughout the meal, and the service staff is extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating.
My only complaint with this visit was at our arrival. I made a reservation on Open Table for that same evening. When we arrived, I was informed that reservations were running 25 minutes behind. On top of this, the waiting area was packed. While I understand it's a busy Saturday night, it would have been great to have been given a heads-up before arrival. Though it put us behind on our plans for after dinner, overall it was a great experience I would highly recommend to anyone to check out for themselves. I'll be back to House of Japan very soon.
Overall food was good, chef was OK. Expensive for the environment, loud, tight seating.
Have been to better Hibachi restaurants.
I went with my family for my birthday. The server was great and the cook was very entertaining! :)
I love the food. Entertaining. Depart from the usual.
Love this place. Great for special occasions and a wonderful place to take the little ones....so exciting for them;)
