Fun place for preteen or teen birthday. Tables seat eight. Fun and entertaining.
Had cooking tabletop. It was very nice to also be able to order from menu also. Show was very nice, and vegan tabletop meal was interesting to watch. Food was excellent both for our vegan and meat eaters. The children love this place!
Favorite sushi place with the best wine selection!
Went for birthdays celebrate my 2 sons birthdays dinner. Our server was amazing fast and friendly. Our chef put on a nice little show. Everything was fresh and tasty.
The Good: We had a great time celebrating my wife's bday with daughter, BF and granddaughter. This is like Benihana's but a bit more personal, freindly and compact. The food was great. The cocktails were excellent. (I could get spoiled there.) The service was great. The ambiance, once seated was great. It's always entertaining to watch the chef performing acrobatics with the food. The clientele was casual and friendly, which is nice when a place is crowded.
The not-so-good: It's really popular. Making it crowded and very, very loud. Valet parking is practically a must as parking lot can't accommodate as many cars as restaurant can accommodate diners. It's a bit pricier than I imagined. Easy to hit $75/plate with drinks, dinner, tax and tip. $100/plate if you really go whole hog.
I would highly recommend you get seven friends and family together, reserve a table and go have a blast at Kimono if you find the Japanese steakhouse concept to your liking.
Everything was great! We love coming here to celebrate our birthdays!
Fun dining with your chef preparing the food in front of you.
We originally picked Kimono because it was midway between our two families. Now, we make it a destination! The food is great and the chefs are engaging. It's dinner and entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
Great showmanship by the Tappenaki chef. Delicious food, friendly atmosphere.
Wonderful food and fantastic service! I will recommend to everyone.
Just like Benihana with some employees who came over from there. Very friendly and in the neighborhood with free valet parking. Pricing comparable and usually crowed on most nights but walk ins welcome. Also great sushi and if you like Hamachi Kama it’s very well prepared. Mmmmm good!
Service was good, but our chef was slow, hesitant and non-energetic. I've been here a few times and this was the first time I experienced a subpar chef cooking our food on the grill.
Sashimi is always fresh and the waiters are all kind and courteous.
Over priced Benihana like restaurant, but not quite there.
Cooked food still tasty but could be served at a hotter temperature.
Sushi still yummy.
Awesome experience like always!
Lots of fun! The service is great and the chefs are friendly and talented. They took my special request in stride (to cook seafood separate from the other meat). A bit expensive but that’s expected at a hibachi restaurant. Parking is terrible but there’s free valet. They even take your picture at the end and give you a free copy!
Had a great time for my anniversary dinner with my husband! Good food!
Always a wonderful experience. We had a delicious meal and always love to view the beautiful aquarium
Our chef was great. Food was delicious and our waitress was very pleasant. Overall we had a great time.
You want good food, come here. Entertainment 💯
You want a show, impress your guest, come me here.
You asking how much it cost ....
You don't need to come here
Cook was amazing. Very entertaining and interacted. The kids enjoyed him. The cook is the only reason I gave it a star. Service was HORRIBLE. Waitress needed to be reminded several times to bring stuff out. She’d pop her face in and just give a thumbs up, not asking what we needed and then run out. It was like I checked on them because I showed my face, but never spoke to us. We could never get her attention. We told her we were celebrating birthdays, she forgot that. I had to ask the host to remind her. She mixed up the people’s birthdays and ice creams. To top it off, she took so long to bring the picture back, I had to pick up the next day.
The sad part is You pay a ton of money food and entertainment and because of poor service, it just wasn’t worth it. I wish the cook would have gotten the top because the waitress didn’t deserve one. This isn’t the first time I’ve had a problem with service. Very disappointing. I hope managers really understand people come for a show and good service. Not unprofessional waitresses who aren’t trained properly or trained poorly to do their job.
Enjoyed as always. One of our favorite places to eat.
We had a GREAT Time with Friends and Strangers for our 11th Anniversary. The Service was GREAT and the Chef was very Entertaining.
Food was good; would have like to have been offered more Japanese tea.
The cook forgot to serve my small nephew his chicken and the waitress forgot to serve my eldest sister her birthday meal (Salmon Boat) and also my sister was never served her soup and rice. My sister had to eat by herself after EVERYBODY was done with their meal. And to top it off the staff was UNABLE to take a birthday picture for her birthday because BOTH CAMERAS HAD DEAD BATTERIES! When I tried talking with the so-called waitress how poor the service was she kept referring to PHONE SERVICE! Even after correcting her 3 Times she still refered back to phone service! It was the worst service EVER......
Food is delicious and the family always enjoys the show
Entertaining experience. Food good and chef was entertaining.
Presentation is great. Food is delicious. I love the chicken fried rice!!
Our dinner was great. We had a table for 8 and were celebrating two birthdays. Our server was very attentive and our chef was fun. I highly recommend a visit to Kimono!
Me and my boyfriend sat at the bar it was pretty empty. The bar tender was really nice. I was disappointed in the food. I ordered a steak and lobster tail. For spending as much as we did I was disappointed when the food came out and it was cold like it was left waiting to be delivered to us for Awhile. I was happy to see the meal came with 3 pieces of shrimp, but again it was cold. Out of the entire dish I liked the lobster tail and veggies the most.
They were very accommodating. The service and food were excellent. W e will dine again at Kimono Restaurant.
This place allows you to enjoy yourself with family and friends ! Highly recommend !
A little too expensive for regular dining. O.K for anniversaries or Birthday's, special occasions.
Great food, our chef was hilarious. Wonderful lunch for all.
This was our first time at Kimonos and our overall experience was pretty good. Although our chef was friendly, he only did 2 cooking tricks. I felt like there wasn’t much of a “show” which was disappointing since that was our main reason to dine there. The table next to us had far more “oooh’s and aaahhs” & we found ourselves trying to see what that chef was doing. Unfortunately I am hesitant to return since it’s unpredictable what chef you will get.
Waited an hour for a table when we had a reservation.
No apology - no hospitality. The chef was excellent and the food well prepared. Not likely to go back.
We have eaten at Kimono's Benicia many times and they are consitantly good for both food quality and service. I highly recommend this restauraunt.
Our favorite place. We were seated swiftly. We were served with a smile and with courtesy.
The service and food was amazing!
