When here for sister's birthday celebration and everyone enjoyed the time. Staff was very friendly and efficient (there are a lot of them). It's your typical habchi experience so if that's what the evening calls for go for it.

We go once a year for a birthday and normally have no problems. This time, despite having a reservation for a Monday night, we had to wait at least 15 minutes to be seated. Once we ordered, the chef did not come to our table for about 45 minutes. We were given no updates or explanations as to the delay, and no apology. The food was good, as usual.

While we have had good experiences at the House of Japan, Father's Day was not one of them. Chef was very grumpy, did not interact much at all, used way too much soy on everything and over-cooked the meat significantly....medium rare, became medium well. Very disappointing.

I've been there 2X and the last time was for Father's Day. The man that cooked our food was so funny. He involved everyone with funny stuff. Was a totally different visit then my 1st visit that was my 50th Birthday. I will return again and again.

Same good food as always but the restaurant could use some renovation. It's looking very worn down. This used to be THE place to go, but anymore there are many Japanese steakhouses with better atmosphere than this one. I hadn't been here in a few years and want to try it again. Dinner was ok, but I was disappointed in the atmosphere.

The food was great. We had reservations for 1pm on Sunday May 20,2017. I told them we needed a high chair. We they sat us we had waited 30 min. After our reservation time. Then they were trying to sit us at a table that usually the seat 8 there were already 7 people sitting there and no high chair. The young man got a attitude and said we didn't ask for high chair whe intact but only did I put it in my online reservation but my daughter when checking in told them. The cook didn't like if you had a special instruction about your food. I don't like onions so I ordered my fried rice with no onions he made my rice with the egg and mushrooms and it wasn't even cooked I ask if he could cook it more and he took my plate asked the waitress to bring him a rice for one no onion and he cooked it but was not nice about it. He had a bad attitude from then on he dropped my 85 year old mothers shrimp on the table and she had to pick it up he didn't offer to make new ones. This us not the first time we had this cook he is always like this. He also gathered a little rice on his spatula and proceeded to throw it across the isle at another cook. One time he thru a salt shaker that hit my son in law on the foot. This behavior is not becoming of a professional cook. There for I'm not sure if bi will be visiting this one anymore there is another one at Polaris it's a little bit farther but it may be worth it .

The food didn't seem as good as usual. I changed my order and got the steak and it was a little too done. My friend egg yolk sauce was not on her shrimp, as requested. My other friends weren't impressed with their chicken either but said usually it's very good. The chef didn't interact with us as much as usual either. It was good food but we have received better.

It is hibachi with the grill in the table. You are seated with people you don't know & we always meet the nicest people. We had Myron last night & he could be a stand up comedian. Great meal even if the fried rice was slightly under-seasoned. It was the best cooked filet I've had there. And don't forget the egg yolk sauce!!!

This is our favorite place for great food and celebrations. Our table was celebrating a birthday and several tables had prom goers in their best gowns and suits. Staff is very friendly and table side cooks are excellent. Menu includes lots of sushi selections as well as, delicious hibachi grilled entrees. We had delicious filets and shrimp. The restaurant is also well known for seafood selections including fresh salmon, scallops and calamari. Vegetarian options are also available.

We were celebrating my wife's graduation and made reservations for 3 for 6:30. We checked in and it was very busy. Lots of prom guests. At 6:45 we asked how much longer, and they couldn't tell us. We left at 7:10 after never being seated and asking again how much longer with a response of, "it should be shortly".

I have been here 2 other times, but always during the week and was always seated within 5 minutes.

While we enjoyed the show and had a great chef, our server did not know the ingredients in the salad dressing, claiming it to be gluten free. Celiac son spent the next two days sick from the dressing, and they have no alternative to full gluten soy sauce that is on every dish they prepare. This made it awkward that they had to prepare his entire meal on the grill while everyone else waited until his was done. Definitely not allergy friendly, which I would have been fine with if it had been accurately addressed beforehand. Manager was totally rude about us finding out too late that the food was guaranteed to be gluten free when it wasn't.

Spur of the moment decision to go to House of Japan for an early dinner with my husband.
Our experience was very good, except for the warm moist clothes that were dry and burnt.
Food and service was very good. (amount of food was generous.) One of our favorite

Food was excellent. One of our guests had the meal that included the soup, but they forgot it. My husband had shrimp appetizer with the egg sauce . They put the cooked egg sauce on his plate, but forgot the shrimp! About 5 minutes later , the cook realized it and then threw the shrimp on his plate. Our main course was cooked and put on our plate before the shrimp appetizer. It also seemed like we always had zucchini that was stir fried with the bean sprouts, and that wasn't done. I must admit that I was disappointed in this visit. The expertise was lacking.
