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.

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......

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.

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.

I find this to be one of the better Japanese restaurants in the Vallejo/Benicia area. The decor is especially appealing -- check out the large salt-water aquarium. The food is both delicious and beautifully presented.

Every time we dine at Kimono's it's a great time. Easy to get seated, and a much easier environment to have a fun dinner with a group than other similar restaurants in the area, as you can actually hear the person sitting next to you. It's our go to restaurant when we want a fun night out.

We've been coming here since it opened. It's a good place. Our waiter was not great. Young, lots of rude comments toward patrons seated at our table. This is our second time having him - he really ruins the ambiance.

This place is awesome. The wife and I enjoyed the cooking and family style ambiance. She's never been, so I scored major brownie points. Well that and the movie Infinity War. I got to say the chief that we had was vary friendly and comedic. Our waitress was nice and friendly. We're gonna take the kid next time.

I've been dining here since it's opening 2 years ago or so. We loved this place. But they are now charging extra to add garlic butter to your steak. Absolutely ridiculous. The staff is not friendly anymore. Poor customer service when I spoke to "the manager" and she smelled very strong of cigarettes and weed which I mentioned to her. Back to benihanas!

The Sushi dishes we had visually looked good but lacked in flavor. It was overpriced for what we received for a lot less at our usual spot. Our waitress checked on us initially & filled our waters but once we were finished we could bot locate her for 20 min to get our check. We were disappointed with out experience.
