The whole experience was great! The food was delicious and the portions were worth it! The ambiance and overall “show” was very fun and made for a great family night.

They cook it all right in front of you on a large stainless grill! The chefs all slice & dice your cook-to-order meat, veges, & fried rice in a comical and entertaining fashion. Some are more entertaining than others, but it’s always quite a spectacle. It’s a speedy endeavor, but perfect for parties of 8 or 10 if you want a private family dining experience.

I didn’t appreciate how much we spent for how fast we were rushed in and rushed out got a check before we were even done eating food was kind of bland not much of a show we brought my granddaughter with us wasn’t very happy with it especially for the price. Thank you

We go here all the time. Our food was awesome and our cook was amazing (Anthony). They ended up seating us and getting our drinks and then never coming back to check on us or refill drinks again. We had to chase a server down to even pay. They ended up not knowing who was supposed to serve us. We probably sat for at least 30 minutes after we were done eating before we finally chased someone down.

We celebrated my birthday and my sister in law's birthday. I made a reservation for 8 a month in advance. We were seated quickly and instantly our drink orders and food orders were taken. The food and service was amazing! I would highly recommend it to friends. Prices were fair and we didn't mind the automatic 18% tip required with the reservation for 8. Good times!

It’s dirty. The staff parks all kinds of trays and pitchers on the cooking surface when it’s not in use. Our cooking surface had a cleaning tub sitting on it before we were seated. The food was good.

This was our fist visit to Iron Chef and from the moment we entered the building until we left my husband I were very impressed from the staff to the food. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. We have already made plans to return on our own and with other family members and guests.

Such good food! Chef cooked in front of is and was great. Service slightly slow but friendly. Not the most romantic atmosphere. A little expensive for the entire thing but I guess we're paying for the chef too. Overall, I'll go back

My wife and I love this place. We eat here often and always enjoy our chef the food and the atmosphere. I'm so happy I discovered Open table because it made planning my evening that much easier. Iron Chef is often very busy but now I have a way to reserve my table and skip the wait.

It can get noisey during peak hours but the food and people that work here make it easy to avoid the volume.

My family and I visited Iron Chef for my daughter and fathers bday's. The chef was amazing with the younger kiddos as well as making sure my daughter was acknowledged through the entire presentation. The food was amazing the chef was amazing. Only thing that got me was automatic gratuity with 8 people when my nephew is 1. Didn't throw a fuss with how great everything was, just hoping it goes to the chef mostly as he was great!!!

Forgot chicken on one of the orders. Soda was not good so we asked for another type and she brought the same one and charged for the refill. Price is expensive for mediocre Steakhouse. My stomach was sour the next day.

This was my wife’s and my first time here We made reservations on a Wednesday night ( no special occasion). The restaurant was about 1/3 full so we really didn’t need them and the hostess never asked. We were the last two to be seated around the table. The server came to take our order. We waited about 20 minutes for the chef. The food was good. We had steak and chicken. The steak was a little tough though. The chef did the typical “egg roll and Pepsi joke with the sauce”. Immediately after serving the last of what was on the grille the server was bringing the cups of sherbet. She asked if we needed boxes. I’m not that slow of an eater but it was like they were interested in getting everyone out of there. I would still recommend this restaurant. It just didn’t seem any different than any other Japanese steakhouse

We chose this restarauant because friends had said that it was good. We decided to try it as part of our weekly family activity. When we got there, the restaurant wasn't at all like the pictures I had seen.

The hostess sat us at our table and we were three of six people but we were seated on the opposite side next to a beam. As a result my daughter had to sit semi in the asile where people were moving back and forth behind her causing her to constantly shift her chair to allow them to go back and forth.

The food was decent and the chef was entertaining but it was certainly not worth the price we paid for dinner. It's okay if you want a quick show and decent food but certainly not anywhere I'd go for a "wow" experience or for any special occasion.

Made the mistake of scheduling a reservation for 13 thinking we’d all be able to enjoy the experience together, but not so. We needed up divided and basically eating separately. Not my idea of a great party. Food was good as always and the cook was entertaining. Just wish they’d make it clear that we’d all be somewhat split.

Had great vibes, the food was yummy and you could see how it was prepared before your eyes. The Chef was charismatic and made the entire evening. He did throw hot food at us but it was fun if you don’t mind having food thrown at you. We got the opportunity to sit with strangers which is always a bit strange but not in this setting. Will definitely go back it was very good food and great entertainment.

We have visited the Iron Chef several times and typically for a special occasion as was this. We had a great time and will visit again. The staff was very friendly and helpful as was our Chef. A couple of minor things. First, not sure how update the online menu is because a few bar items were not available. House policy is people cannot be seated until everyone in the party arrives. I get that for a busy night but during the middle of the week at 6pm when the majority of the tables were unoccupied seemed a bit silly. We did get seated about 5 minutes before our Son arrived though. Lastly, took a bit longer than it should have to pay our bill. Waited approximately 10 minutes after receiving the check. Little things yes but they can add up if not managed correctly. Looking forward to our next gathering there.

We go here once a month at least, but this time the portions were small, the food had no flavor. And the chef was busy caring on conversation and not paying attention to food so the meat was overcook and the vegetables were undercooked. We had a reservation and we arrived about 5 minutes early and they put us at a table that had already ordered so we were rushed to put in our order. Not the best time for a anniversary dinner.
