Iron Chef Japanese Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
It was very crowded the night the 3 of us went, but we had a reservation and we were seated fairly quickly. The employees were very efficient at getting tables cleaned and ready to go. The food was delicious. I wish I would have gotten the name of our Chef, because he was exactly what you want when you go to a hibachi style restaurant. He was quick with a knife and wit, he was funny, but not awkward, and best of all, he cooked delicious food and gave generous portions. It was an experience well worth the price.
Ther service was good and he chef had great sense of humor that added to the entertaining dinner preparation. The only thing I give lower score is the food were all over seasoned with soy sauce and tonkatsu sauce. The bacon wrapped scallops for appetizer had tonkatsu sauce on it that I would normally just sprinkle black pepper and lemon juice since bacon has saltiness. So as the shrimps, steak, chicken and lobster were all season with soy sauce very strong. I’m glad I ordered white steam rice instead of fried rice. Other than the food, it was awesome experience.
Disappointed this time in Iron Chef. It is a tradition that my spouse and I come here every Christmas day for dinner. This year, the chef wasn't very much into the show (even though there were 2 younger girls at our table who had never experienced Hibachi before) and did not interact much. Also, when another guest complained about the food he just said I don't know why that would be, and did not try to fix the situation. Also, took forever to get refills on water, beer, and the basic steamed rice that came with the meal. I could understand if they were swamped, but by the time we got there the restaurant was fairly empty. It is a tradition so we will keep coming, but with the number of new hibachi restaurants opening up in the area - if Iron Chef doesn't step up their game, i'm afraid they won't be around much longer. It was quick though.... we were in and out of the restaurant in under 45 mins.
We had steak and shrimp and the flavor was ok, the steak was asked for medium rare - we got closer to rare. Again, we were ok with that, but I know of others who would not have been.
We got seated quickly - but we had also made sure to make a reservation ahead of time. Moderate at best this time around.
We used to love this place. I was never able to finish my food. Now, it's overpriced, portions are scares and they got rid of sprouts but didn't make up for the loss by replacing them with more veggies or rice. Lastly, and most importantly I had the chef lose control of his fire wand it landed in my chest on fire, burnt my hair and not one!, not one person offered help, compensation or a word. They just hovered to see if I was going to throw a fit, I did not. But very disappointed they chose to ignore an incident that potentially could have caused severe burns to a customer. They also overcharged us by almost 50.00! Luckily i caught it. We will not be back.
Mediocre food experience that would have been a lot better if the group next to us weren't so loud (drunk). Also, we felt very rushed as the check was brought out while we were still eating and no one offered to get us a second drink. Kind of a bummer, since we spent more time waiting for a table (despite reservations) than actually enjoying our meal. Probably won't go back.
Our cook was Anthony and he made our 5year anniversary special. He was fun, talkative, outgoing, great entertainment. If you go ask for Anthony, while waiting there was a different chef at a table who looked boring. Anthony made the first time going a great first experience.
Took a group of 2 children, 1 teenager and 5 adults. One person had never experienced teppanyaki and really enjoyed the show. The kids liked the show and were engaged by the chef which was nice. The food was great, including the fried rice which was ordered by two of the party. Very enjoyable, and good pace to dinner.
Our family of 7 went for Easter dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was prompt and courteous. Our reservation was for 1 pm which is when they open on Sunday so there was not a crowd. We were seated as soon as we all arrived. Tables are designed for 8 so if your party is smaller you may be seated with another party or if larger you will have to utilize 2 tables. Prices were a little high but considering you are paying for entertainment in addition to the food it was reasonable. expect $35-$40/ person depending on what entree you choose. Our chef was great. Said his name was... Sum Yung Gui with "stage name' of Peter. He bantered with us the entire time he was cooking. Did some trick I had never seen before. Since it was Easter he made the fried rice into a Rabbit head shape. It is a large open space (kind of warehouse like) but for me did not detract from the experience.
