Birthday dinner. Food was great. Service is good. The room we were in was not well air conditioned so it was too warm. But overall, a good experience. The right room temp would have made it great.

Arrived later than planned but the evening was great! Not many people present but a couple soon joined us in the room. I hadn't been there since my daughter's high school graduation. She is now working on her PHD! The place hasn't messed a beat! My lady enjoyed things immensely! We had the Chef to ourselves! The food was tasty and plentiful! Wish I could there more often! Love the place!

Overall a good time. Except it was very warm inside. Many people were complaining.

The air conditioning was not working. It was so hot we didn't not finish our meal. Big fans set up that looked tacky and did not help cool anything off. I was disappointed. This used to be THE place to go in Nashville. The food was delicious, but the restaurant was too hot to enjoy

26th Wedding Anniversary. Sat with a fun birthday group. Even got our meal paid for by guests honoring our day! Very cool.

I have been coming here for 20 years and it is almost always good to great. This time there were a few glaring problems that were hopefully only due to the Mother's Day rush and possibly a new cook. The wait was fine, the restaurant looks like it always does, and they are fairly friendly. The problem was all at the table. The chef looked WORN out, seriously bad for wear. And a bit lost. Not that he didn't know how or what to cook, but the order, the prep, the show. All of this seemed like he was brought in from another place. The worst part was that he was so out of it he handed jars of sauce and paste to each guest to scoop with their own utensils. That's a health code violation. He also let the rice sit forever in a vat of oil and while I think the fried rice there is the best thing ever, it was barely up to local Chinese food standards. So oily....Not even a hint of a show which frankly has become a throw away the last few years. All of this combined and considering I brought 5 guests, we were about to say something to the always friendly management when lo and behold, almost all of the meal (save the rice) came out fantastic. The scallops were the best I've tasted anywhere. The steak was perfect. All in all no where near the usual standards of such a good place, but the food was still great at a decent enough price. I will of course return because I like this place, but that was really unfortunate.

Very good food, tired decor and VERY smoky atmosphere due to poor ventilation. Needs a renovation soon

The food was pretty average. Our chef didn't really put on a show. He flipped the shrimp a little but no knife skills and they all seemed pretty bored with the job. Not worth $30 a plate anymore. This place used to be bangin. It was kind of disappointing because I expected it to be an amazing first time experience for my son and he wasn't impressed. The staff was nice- just no energy and no typical teppenyaki performance.
