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.

We were there for my sons 11th birthday, it was an ok experience, its his favorite place to go. the food was cooked a little to high you could taste a little burnt taste to it.

The kids had fun but for a 9 person check of almost 300.00 we were a little upset.

Thanks amy

Service was very slow. Took 30 minutes to be seated. Drink service was just ok, soup was luke warm, had to wait awhile for what they call salad, lettuce with a lot of dressing, chef was slow to arrive at the table. Food just ok, not worth the money. Not a good way to show my mom a happy birthday.

When we arrived Kabuto Japanese Steak House did not show our reservation that was mad through Open Table. I showed them our confirmation and they took us after a 20 minute wait but it was worth it. The food was awesome and so was the service!!

We have been to many Hibachi restaurants and this was one of the best. It was our first time having Hibachi bananas, which were yummy. The chef was great and the food was yummy.

Service had gotten poor every time we go. They take so long to take drink order/ bring drinks. Then hand you a togo box and check before you can even order another drink or finish eating. You feel rushed for a $100+ dinner with family.

Our fried rice smell and taste like raw fish and was very mushy. Not at all like it should be. Salad dressing were only to choices neither which we liked. Price was a lot more than others which I wouldn't mind if food was great. This was our first experience there and our last. Sorry.

I thought my server was ok. She was nice, but she did not smile once and was very monotone. The food was ok. The rice was kind of bland. The chef was really nice, energetic, entertaining, helpful, and really made sure we enjoyed the show. It was really loud, but that is expected with cooking tables so it did not really bother me.
