We were a few minutes late for our reservation and the hostess, although did accommodate us, was not very friendly. The food was OK but the rice was under cooked.
We have eaten there a few times before but this was not a good experience.

The chef was mediocre at best, lots of fat left on the steak. We waited forever for the chef to come and even with a reservation you always have to wait. For the money paid to eat here you don’t get the quality that you should.

We had made a reservation for 7 and we didn’t get at until after 730. So I’m not sure the point of a reservation. But we finally sat down and we waited over 10 minutes and server came over and told us sorry she didn’t know she got sat. But meanwhile I had went to the restroom and she was up front just chatting away with someone. She came to take our drink order but we still had no menus. And gentleman came by not even 30 seconds after she took our drink order and said what can I get to you eat. Well we hadn’t even had the Menus for for a minute. He then proceeded to stand there until we all decided. They brought out soup and we still had no drinks. We got salads and still had no silverware even though we asked twice and one lady got up to find someone to bring it to us. It took over 15 minutes to get our bar drinks. This is the worse service we have ever had and I work as a restaurant manager and during all this no manager ever can by to check on us or anything. I had put in my reservation that it was someone’s birthday. The server then brought out a dessert and we weren’t even half way though our meals. I am not sure if we will ever be back again but now I know we had never been in this place before.

The wait staff fantastic.. however the experience was not as expected from past experiences at Japanese Steakhouse. The chef was not interactive with group nor did he put on any type of show except cutting the onion and making a volcano. That was it.. Dont order the scallops they were so big and cut into pieces.. I was the only one that got sick for the night and the only one that had "scallops"

Chef was very boring no personality and skipped all of the show. None of the show was performed which is one of the reasons my wife and I go pretty regular. The food was ok at best. Appetizer shrimp were basically burnt and main course shrimp were like rubber. The chicken we had to tell him wasn’t fully done. My sushi was perfect as always. Very disappointed in the past 2 visits so we will try another time but we may pick another go to restaurant if things are picked up to the level I know the place is capable of

I told the hostess it was my son's birthday. You can imagine how deflating it was when the wait staff came over and celebrated another guests birthday but never celebrated my son's. When I said something to the waiter, she turned to my son (20)and said "Oh sorry...do you want us to sing to you?" His response was..."uh, no...that's okay" 😑 very disappointing. The service was rushed and impersonal.

Food good but the a/c vent were very dirty with dust and grime, bathroom floors sticky from not being mopped-next time we will go to Fire and Sticks which places a premium on cleanliness. Cook placed raw chicken on grill with cooked shrimp, rice and salmon-luckly no one got sick.

Our server was excellent. We were there for a business lunch and had a limited amount of time. He moved things right along without making us feel too rushed. It was the best experience and the best customer service I have had in a very long time.

First time we have eaten there and we felt we were RUSHED out - we were given take out boxes as soon as the chef left. No time to eat, then we were given the bill - like hurry up and leave and there were open tables around us ?? Please don't rush your guest.

We wanted to dine for just sushi and drinks but the bars area was so full and it took us 10 minutes just to get a drink. Once seated at a hibachi table, we mentioned that we just wanted sushi but they told us we could order it at the hibachi table since the bar situation was a mess. Then we were told by the waiter we were not supposed to eat there if we were just having sushi. He continued to push us to order more than we wanted. This place was not what we expected and overall it was very noisy. At least the food was good but I wouldn’t go back.

Chef was evidently new. Out of order on cooking the rice veggies and shrimp. Not as crowd pleasing. Missed the cooktop on a steak and just picked it up from the table pack to grill. I still love the restaurant but this was not my best visit by far

Had a great time. Food was great. The only issue is we were seated and we sat there 10-15 min before a server came to the table to get our drink order. After that the service was fantastic!

Coming in there was no parking spaces which delayed our arrival. When we finally went in to check in the ladies up in the front were not friendly. Even though we had a reservation we still had to wait at least 30 minutes. It took a while for the chef to come out and start cooking. For the price the food was not good at all and some of the chicken tasted and felt as if it was not cooked all the way. It was a disappointment from the start. We will definitely keep going to Arigatos. It is cheaper and the food and service is amazing not mentioning that they do tricks throughout the whole cooking show.
