The restaurant has 4 different experiences. The teppan is great for a good show. The tables are nice for a intimate dinner. The sushi bar is good area to congregate. The bar is nice and loud with multiple TV to watch sports...and occasionally has live music.

We made reservations for 10 - at 6pm - we didn’t get seated till almost 7 - yes you were busy, but why make reservations??
We had a young baby in our party - the wait was not helpful.

I have made reservations twice at this restaurant and have always been on time. I have a party of three. They always make us wait at least an hour while they seat larger parties that have later reservations than we do. I know this because we usually wait in the lobby and can hear them discuss it. I understand that it takes people as long as it takes to eat but the wait times are difficult with a child. Moral of the story is being a snack.

My husband had been asking about going for Teppan and we were so looking g forward to trying this place but we spent over $200 for three people and only ordered beer and one basic sushi in addition to the Teppan. I was beyond disappointed! Meat had nerves, everything was rushed out. If I’m going to spend that much money for one meal it should be outstanding, or even just good. Worst Teppan experience, never plan to go back!

We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time and once we were finally seated it took forever for us to be served our drinks and appetizers and then our order got mixed up and the chefs seemed really rushed and didn’t even do any of the normal cooking show experience. We went for a surprise birthday dinner and our birthday guest was very disappointed.

I made a reservation for 8:00 and we were not seated timely. No one communicated with us, we had to keep asking. Fortunately, the table service and food made up for our experience at arrival. I would definitely come back again!

We waited for more than 1hr for our 7:30pm reservation.
Service is very slow & the noise level is extremely noisy with the band playing on the bar area. There’s no conversation was made since we cannot hear each other.
They continue to accept a walk in reservation even if they’re over book it.
2 birthday celebration & we have to repeat ourselves over & over again. They just gave our celebrants an ice cream with singing. So, decided to sing & even then we can’t hear us sing.
Not coming back again!

I know that we as a community are still recovering from COVID, but the service we received was incredibly slow and no where near your usual standards. We not informed of the online menu, offered a chance to order appetizers, or given refills on our drinks. Even though we were celebrating a birthday, we chose to leave before dessert because of our disappointment.

Waited over an hour to be seated. Once finally inside it was FREEZING at 9pm at night inside the restaurant. Then I was seated next to a large table who kept screaming so much and was so loud I had to get up and walk out before I even ordered. My ears were still ringing minutes after I left the restaurant.
