60th birthday party. Had a great server; she was in training but did really well and was really trying to ensure everything went smoothly. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for a fun date!

If my friend is a vegetarian I would say no. The vegetarian choices are very limited. The food is overpriced for what you receive. Ice cream portions are way too small.

Went for my fiance's birthday. It took the waiter 30 min to get our drinks. Sat down at 815 didn't get started with dinner till almost 930. Then they proceeded to try and rush us out since they close at 10. Foods good. But the service was not what we were expecting.

Pricey for the quality and amount served but good food usually. We often order at a booth and noticed the quantity of veggies/scallops and filet mignon is much smaller lately.

My 51st birthday with my teen children. The chef was very entertaining, skilled, and witty. And he prepped some great food, at all times entertaining with his food humor.

Our chef, Julian was AMAZING! Entertaining for both adults and children! My son, who was the birthday celebrant asked if we could request him for our next celebration at Kimono! Thank you Julian for making my son’s birthday dinner that much more special! The food was really delicious!

I ordered the tuna steak and there was no option for me to get it cooked medium style. The waitress had to go back and ask multiple times. I also asked for the veggies that were supposed to go on top to not have them at all but the waitress said they can put it on the side but they were making it seem like it was a big inconvenience when its really saving you from cooking them at all. It wasn’t a big deal considering we were there celebrating my brothers birthday and he ended up taking my veggies and the chef was so nice and made my food perfectly! All in all it was a good meal and great service!

Food is consistently good however this time we were not impressed with the wait time for our cook. We were seated at 8 pm, took 10 minutes before we were approached by our waiter for drinks then our cook didn’t even start at our table until almost 9pm. Not sure what the delay was but nobody apologized or informed us of a delay.

Waited for 35 min. for a table when we had a reservation for 7pm. Perhaps to get more money out of customers to sit at the bar and drink before they eat.
Food is always fantastic however.

The restaurant is beautifully done.
The food was delicious and plentiful
And the price reasonable.
But best of all was our server Chris who was friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and efficient.

We went here to eat before my sisters bachelorette and it did not disappoint! Our server was awesome! She kept our drinks refilled and we didn’t have to call her over not once because she was so attentive and friendly! I will definitely be coming back! And our chef was hilarious and very entertaining and our food was delicious!

The food taste good but a bit too salty and I meant the teriyaki sauce. Fried rice price is too high at $4.50. Thank you for your time.

I have been to all the Hibachi steak houses in the Bay Area, and Kimono is far above the best.

I enjoy your meal on Saturday, July 20. However waiting to get a table was a long one as I waited 25 minutes to get my table when I already have a reservations for 5:30 PM. Your fry rice was an add on for dinner at $4.50. That is a very high price for just chicken fried rice. Thank you for always having high-quality me in your restaurant.

Love Kimono's! We always enjoy having dinner there. It gets a bit pricey when you have a large group but it is usually for a special occasion and you get entertainment with your meal.

Love this place always good food! Good price for what you get however you shouldn’t have to pay for fried rice. The price for the meal should include that. No one wants steamed rice when having teppan. Other than that great place!
