Japengo was fabulous! All tables have an ocean view. The service was excellent. We had the sashimi, sushi roll, Mahi Mahi and the chow fun. All were excellent. Very nice ambience for a romantic dinner.

Waiter did not engage with us at all - very mechanical. Did not remember who ordered what. Felt like he just wanted to turn table over. Note: He was not rude in any way. No moist toilettes or warm cloth provided for member of our party that ordered ribs as appetizer. Had to go to bath room to wash hands.Given the price and quality of food - expect better service.

The new lead sushi chef, Masa, is fantastic. He has big shoes to fill, as Jin is also awesome. I guess the bottom line is that Japengo has done it again and hired another world-class sushi chef.

The food was ‘ok.’ When I pay a pretty penny for food, I expect flavor. Was disappointing-

I had higher expectations for the taste of the dishes based on the price that it cost. The presentation of the food was nice. The seafood curry was ok but the hapa rice was grainy. Definitely not worth 45.00. The Rainbow roll a had a overpowering mayo flavor that drowned out flavor of the raw fish. So I wouldn't order those dishes again. I don't mind paying 50.00 for an entree, but it needs to taste exceptional for my standard. The Green tea cheesecake was good, the Duck meatballs tasted like beef, couldn't taste duck. The calamari was plain sprinkled with a little curry powder. It was my first visit to Japengo's and I was a little disappointed. No wow factor.. Sorry Japengo. just being honest.

Wonderful food with a beautiful setting. I would had loved to have a table with full ocean view although the food and service made up for it.
It made it really nice to be able to get half portions of items to try more. From what we had, our favorite was the ahi dinner, calamari, and corn. We also had one sushi roll although it wasn’t our favorite.

It rained and we were moved a couple of times. The manager told us he would comp our first round of drinks due to the confusion and inconvenience, but we did not receive the comp as promised.

The food was excellent, we recommend the seafood pancakes. Great views, reservations recommend.

30th anniversary dinner and wanted special location with a great menu and reputation. What we gots was very pricey, very salty and food was served so quickly that from arrival of our drinks to the last of the 9 items (Family style - sharing menu) took only 50 minutes ... it was served ‘way too fast’ making it seem like they wanted you out of there as fast as possible, this despite our 7:30 reservation and many open tables after we finished!
Very disappointing evening for our group of 6!!!

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary week at Japengo. Everything was excellent, and I don’t say that lightly. First, we asked for a better table as we were celebrating. They sat us in a more private outside corner at the beach, but secluded by palm trees and tiki torches. Our experience began with an excellent waitress who asked about allergies, likes and dislikes: 5 adults, a bottle of champagne and an order of the evening’s special sushi. One in our party has an egg yolk allergy, so they placed the lobster topping in a separate bowl so the rest of us could enjoy it without cross-contamination. Smart. The men enjoyed the steaks while the ladies had the evening’s special fish. It was wonderful! Nice wine selection and cocktails. Delicious chocolate layered cake for dessert. It was such a special evening in such a special place. My wife was so happy and truly enjoyed the evening.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday and had a lovely evening. It started with Happy Hour and then a beautiful sunset dinner. The service was excellent and the food delicious. This has become a tradition for us, so planning on coming back next year.

Wonderful farm-and-ocean-to-table menu, with both old standards and striking imaginative flavor combinations. The half-portion, half-price option for some dishes is a clever and customer-friendly gesture. Excellent attentive service.

Everything was phenomenal; the food, the service, the view from our table. It definitely isn’t a budget conscious restaurant but I would absolutely recommend Japengo for a special occasion meal, or just to splurge and treat you and your loved ones to a delicious meal.
