I made a reservation at Kyoto Palace through OpenTable to surprise my husband for an early birthday party. They read my notes about surprising him and it went flawlessly! Love the food and employees! Thanks for everything Kyoto! Also their happy hour menu is really tasty and affordable. Plus OpenTable makes reservations SO EASY! Thanks again!

Said in my open table reservation it was my wife’s bday. But was not acknowledged. Felt bad for her. Either they ignored or there is an issue between open table comment that it was my wife’s birthday.

We have been to Kyoto Palace multiple times. This was for a birthday celebration. We were totally shocked that there was a set New Year's Eve menu for lunch (same as dinner). It was really expensive and we were not told in advance. It was over $150 for 3 people for lunch. There was nothing special about the food, other than you had the option of having a glass of free champagne which we weren't interested in having. In fact, the meal included onions, mushrooms and zucchini. I had one slice of mushroom and 1 small piece of zucchini.
Had we made reservations for dinner on New Year's eve, this might have been expected, but who has a set menu for lunch?
I was extremely disappointed.

Kyoto Palace has become the "go-to" place for birthdays, it seems. It was fun for the kids, very entertaining. Food was pretty good. We felt a bit rushed - leftover boxes were brought out when we had really just gotten our meals served - and the kids felt like they had to pack it up when they weren't even done. So, fun party atmosphere and entertaining chefs, but a bit "assembly-line" feeling.

Our service fell short today. Drinks were not refilled and the table service was very rushed. The teppanyaki chef altered the experience and didn’t even bother to do the egg and throw pieces in the air to people wNting to catch it in their mouth. He was not expressive and looked like he wanted to leave. Pluses were the appetizers which we got since we waited so long for them to start the show (rainbow roll and gyozas!).

Food not great. Steak no tender
Fried Rice was not prepared well
I mentioned in open table it was for a birthday. We were the only table which did not have the song
The chef was ok, not the best
Also you expect a Japanese chef not a Mexican (or any other nationality ) behind the table

Pretty disappointed overall
I have done several similar to this restaurant and always pleased with the experience at the table
