You can never go wrong with anything on their menu. Their sushi is so fresh, and delicious nothing else in the area even compares! You shouldn't wait for a special occasion to give this place a try.

I am a bit disappointed. I've been coming here for years and they never have Yuzu sake anymore. Yet they continue to list it. Over the years they have slipped a bit in quality. My soup was cold 2× the server was more of a teenager and in my opinion not really suited for the level of food/clientele. He was not knowledgeable with regard to spirits. However, I will never go anywhere else for Hibachi. Kiku is the best. The manager does not know his regulars which is even a bit more insulting.

OUTSTANDING food and drinks. Not too crowded for my 8:00 pm reservation on a Saturday. Wait service was very good, as was the bartending and hostess service. Food came out of the kitchen quickly (sushi rolls) and the hibachi chef prepared the food for six such that we all were served simultaneously.

Food was great as usual!!! Service not so much! He was good the first 10mins came back with drinks, soup and salad very fast. Took our order and after that only came back to the table twice. Everyone needed refills of water and pop didn’t get them. He came back the second time and asked if we wanted refills but everyone was done eating.

Kids loved the cook very interactive with everyone at the table. Made sure the kids were ready for the fire. Great job with the food as well

This was challenging. The first thing noticed when walking in was the cloud of smoke throughout the entire restaurant. It was unpleasant. Far more than any other Japanese steakhouse with hibachi that we’ve ever been too. The floors are coated with a film of grease. It seems like their ventilation systems over the hibachi are either undersized or not functioning. I fear for the health of the workers. OSHA has some pretty strict guidelines in terms of exposure to particulate in the air.

Secondly was the service. Our waiter was either new or really didn’t care. We had 6 people at our table. Four were a family and two were my wife and I. He got the majority of the drink orders wrong. The family sitting with us requested noodles and other special requests for fried rice, etc. The waiter missed all of those requests.

I believe our chef was so distracted by the chaos with trying to get the correct food ordered, he ended up overcooking the fried rice and our lobster.

Overall this was a complete let down. We likely won’t be back.

Had a 6 pm reservation wasn’t seated until 620. No communication. No to mention once we were seated the freezing cold air blowing on us. Disappointed didn’t get noodles with hibachi. Once you put your chopsticks down they wanted to take your plate. Not sure if we’d go back
