Osaka Japanese Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Today is 4 degrees in MN.
My colleagues and I went to Osaka for the hibachi lunch. However, when we arrived, we all noticed the restaurant was too cold (low temperature). The greeter brought us to the grill area and that space was even colder than the front entrance area.
We forfeited the grill experience to be seated in a warmer area of the restaurant. Half way through the meal, it was still too cold and we put on our winter coats. At the same time, we noticed the table next to us all had their winter coats on as well.
We told the server about the low temperature and asked to have it turned up. His response shocked us all. He told us that he could not turn up the thermostat but would tell management, as it is their decision to adjust the temperature. Needless to say, we will not be returning until summer.
Poor business decision. If you are running a business, you should make sure your guests are comfortable.
We had a party of 14 when we visited Osaka recently for our family's October birthday celebrations. Several of us were quite disappointed with the food and the chef. His presentation was lackluster, it seemed as though he was rushing through the cooking, and portions of the meats were not what they've been in the past. I had Filet and Shrimp hibachi, and I certainly did not receive my full portion of steak. My son also had ordered filet and says he was sure he was given NY strip instead. The flavor of the food was good, but we come to Osaka not only for the food, but also for the experience. We have been happy in the past with this Osaka, but nearly the entire group was dissatisfied with this experience. I'm not sure we'll be back.
The food is good, very standard Hibachi steakhouse and sushi. It was of normal quality. The service here is absolutely next level atrocious. I am talking catastrophically bad. I worked in the restaurant industry for 12 years, so I did not complain there, and I am usually the last to do so, but just come prepared to be there for about 3 hours.
This was a three generations birthday celebration. We were semi concerned taking our four year old grandson to this restaurant: no worries! He kept saying "do the fire again"! He ate some of everything and was only "somewhat afraid" of the Birthday Clown mask. Adults all loved your restaurant, once again! Thanks
We were visiting Minneapolis (State Fair) when we decided to go Asian food and found this place very close to our hotel. Our chef Jorge, who's Mexican (no one is Japanese despite the restaurant name), gave us an unexpected show of his acrobatic skills with cooking utensils and prepared all of our food absolutely perfectly with great flair. This apparently is part of the dining experience, giving the guests a great added dimension.
Staff is friendly and open to interact with guests as we like to do or, from observing other tables, do their job and leave it at that.
Reservations mean nothing here!!! We made a reservation via Open Table for our Anniversary dinner! Upon arriving the hostess/slash bartender tells us there's an hour wait. We tell him we have a reservation (which was clearly displayed on his computer screen). He sees it then says he's down a chef & all tables are full right now. We left! Why accept reservations if you don't honor them! Our dinner was ruined because of this! Plus the place stinks! I wouldn't send my dog there to eat!!
Went for Hibachi on my wife's birthday. Pretty typical American/Japanese restaurant interior. Right away though the concierge was engaging and that continued with the waitress and other staff. Our hibachi chef was relatively new and competent although not amazing, however the food was delicious and he had a few good tricks.
I requested specially that they do the birthday routine for my wife that they normally do for kids and they obliged us. It was good fun and they played along well.
Overall, a good dining experience and fun for a birthday.
I am never disappointed when going to Osaka. The food is awesome, the price is fair and you get a little bit of entertainment with your meal as the chef puts on a bit of a show while preparing your meal. Great for birthday's (they seem to be a go-to place for birthdays as you will hear), or just a night out with family.
Waitress only came back once during the entire meal - we were very thirsty. Chef dropped three utensils on the ground and cut his finger in the first 5 minutes. I hadn't been there before so didn't know about the pouring saki into people's mouths or throwing food so I didn't participate. Two of us had the lobster tail and it was so salty we couldn't eat it. The restaurant was very dark and not very inviting.
The services and food was great. The only thing was the chef that was entertaining us seem too serious and did not speak up - So we couldn't understand what he was doing or asking us if we want to participate with catching the food. Other then that it was a great experience.
We've been to this Osaka a handful of times, but this time was terrible. We went on Mother's Day for an early dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and my mom's birthday. I made a reservation using the OpenTable app, but apparently the restaurant doesn't actually use the app so we didn't have a reservation. We were still able to be seated, however the restaurant itself was incredibly hot. It must have been 90 degrees inside, and then once the chef started cooking it became even hotter. During the hibachi cooking I had to stand up and bounce my infant, but I couldn't because the floor was so sticky that my shoes were literally stuck to the floor. Finally, the server messed up our bill, but rather than come back to explain the issue he just ran a second charge on the card for an additional $40. In the service industry, when you make a mistake, you must always notify the customer before you charge their card for an additional amount. $200 is a lot of money to spend on what we thought would be an enjoyable dinner when in fact it turned out to be worse service than a fast food restsurant. The service was extremely poor, the ambience of the restaurant was terrible. We will not be returning to this location.
My girlfriend and I went here for a date night and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! We got the filet minogn, lobster tail, and shrimp for two and it just blew our minds. They clock the food right in front of you and it's like dinner + a show while the chef does tricks with the food while also preparing an amazing meal.
Server over-whelmed? Slow to refill drinks. Cook was well below average, not very entertaining and certainly not fun. Food over-priced for what you order. Place was extremely loud. Everything was inconsistent, treatment, service, food amounts. Not a great experience for a triple birthday celebration.
2nd time to this location might be last. Went for wife's bday which I had planned in adavance but they forgot and did not recognize and do celebration song. Orders sushi didn't get that either. Chef was good but he rushed the meal. Location in Eden Prairie is much worse in food and cleanliness.
Arrived at our scheduled reservation time and waited 15 minutes before being seated. Another 15 minutes passed before we received our drinks. After waiting 45 minutes for our food, we asked the waiter multiple times about the status of our food, and every time he acted like it was the first time it was brought to his attention. He had obviously forgot about us and did not care. When the food did arrive, only half of the order showed up, and it was so dry we didn't even eat it all, even though we were starving. Overall it was a terrible dining experience and we will not be back.
