Our last dinner at japengo! Tomahawk was amazingly juicy, awesome flavor, chili crab with the manor buns was to die for! Oyster and sashimi so fresh. Saved room for coconut brûlée and tiramisu! Great wine list and attentive service from Karsten, Simon, and Shirley! Too bad they are closing!

We celebrated my husband’s birthday and we were not disappointed. Our waiter, Arnold, was the best. He was very tentative and gave the best customer service. The food was delicious, especially the scallops we had as an appetizer. It was a bit pricey but overall everything was awesome!!! Thank you and keep up the great work.

We went there to eat "good steak" for dinner, but actually the steak was burnt and did not taste good. We expected higher quality stake as the restaurant is named "Steak & Seafood" so were disappointed. Too bad.

Also, the room lighting is too dark to read the menu. It should be reviewed.

Our first visit to Japengo's was quite memorable. We have dined at several high end restaurants in town and the service we received here ranks at the top of the list. Our food selections for drinks, appetizers, main courses and desserts were all fabulous. All well prepared and creatively presented. One glitch with the doneness of one of the steaks, but that was quickly remedied without a hitch. The ambience was quite pleasant and made for easy conversation around the table. Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. They have private rooms and screened areas for larger groups. A great find.

Was hoping for outdoor seating but all deck furniture is gone due to remodel. We left and went to pool bar next door (same hotel, same floor) to enjoy outdoors, sunset pool, and 1/3 the price. They also don’t have sushi anymore which is why we chose the place.

Main points: No sushi & no outdoor seating.

The food was delicious and the service was great. We were there for a birthday dinner and were sat in a private room in the front. Our waiter was very attentive. We had someone with a food allergy and he took the time to bring out the chef to ensure that she was able to eat what she wanted. I had the filet mignon and it was tender and melted in your mouth.

Appetito is still in their soft opening. They do not yet have their pizza oven operational, so we ordered from the rest of the menu. We had the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer, the hanger steak, and the half chicken. The food was good, but my partner needed salt and pepper for his chicken. Service was attentive. The staff seem to have established a good routine - their were no issues with speed of service, getting the order right, or other issues we've seen in new restaurants.

Just got engaged. The food was amazing, The drinks could be a little larger. Ordered a couple martinis and they were about two drinks. Being a newly engaged couple thought mabe a bottle of champagne would be on the house... there were alot of open tables and a couple was sat right next to us. Kinda wanted a little privacy.

We're loyal customers of Japengo for many years now. We loved the lobster with the sweet chili sauce, truly unique and none like it on the island. The New York strip was very tender coupled with small potatoes. The staff was very attentive and treated us like royalty. Can't wait for the next Japengo experience.

現地のレストランかと思いきや、名前からも分かるように日本人旅行者を多く対象にしていましたね。案内が日本語を話すおばちゃんだったので少し驚きました。でも給仕の人は中国系で親切でした。肝心の料理ですが、シーフードプラターを頼んだのですが、絶品でした。量も大人二人で丁度いい感じです。ステーキも美味しかったです。
