Love this place. Great food and entertaining. We try to go before 5:30 for the early bird prices so that helps a little with the value (feeding 6 people).

Our waitress was terrible our cook was great. Couldn’t get a refill on our drinks we wanted another bottle of wine but never saw our waitress. When the bill came it was wrong tried to charged us $42 more.

The food was delicious, but the experience was awkward. Not the cooks fault, but he had no idea what any of our orders were, and one order was just plain wrong. The system was down so it took a terribly long time to pay for the bill. I love this restaurant and will most likely be back, but I can’t say that for the people I was with, they weren’t thrilled with the experience.

Had a wonderful time at Genji's Steakhouse. The food was great and our Hibachi Chef was a delight. The amount of food was more than enough. Everyone took some home for lunch the following day.

Our waitress was horrible. Not pleasant, didnt ask about refills, and when i finally asked for another Dr. Pepper please, she brought me Pepsi. Steak was very fatty and tough and well done eventhough i asked for medium rare. Cook barely talked to our whole table. Dropped 20% of the tables vegetables and didnt replace them. And all of his fun little tricks he messed up which isnt a big deal, but was the topper for the poor experience. It was my daughter's Birthday and she passed on the icecream because was supposed to get cheesecake and never got it.

They have really good service and all the people there are nice. Great food but kinda expensive. I would recommend sitting at the grill for the great show they put on.

Our dining experience was pretty good. It was just the three of us at the table Our chef was not the best. He was not great with the ‘tricks’ and not slot of
Personality. Our server was not real interactive either. He was very quiet and seemed to be a newer employee. The food was pretty good. Steaks were a little tough but good flavor Overall it was a good experience

The food was excellent and the waiters name was Caleb he was fantastic make sure you ask to be in his section if he's working. I really enjoyed the chef Melvin even my 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed the show it was a real treat. Melvin cooked a wonderful meal and put on a spectacular show. Thanks everyone for making our dinner such a great experience.

The food was great. Our chef was very entertaining, the kids had a blast and thought he was very funny. Our waitress was not great though. She was a major bummer in what otherwise would have been a great meal.

Still love Genji’s, but this visit was not up to my expectations. First of all, they seated 11 people at the table instead of the normal 8, so it was crowded. But they didn’t plan for 11 - they served the same amount of vegetables and rice as for 8, so the portions were much smaller than normal. The chef was possibly new but not as entertaining as normal either. The food was still very good, but if this had been my first visit, it may have been my only one

Genjis has gone down hill greatly over there past few years I remember when it was a clean classy dining experience. I take my wife every year on her birthday because she loves the dinner and show eating by the grill. Genjis always has done 50% off discount on your exact birthday it's been this way for many years. We arrive ordered drinks and told our server it was my wife's birthday she verified my wife's license said happy birthday and we proceeded to order our meals. No mention they only do 50% off birthday discounts Monday-Thursday now. So she's mentions this to us when she gives us the bill. just happens my wife's birthday was on a Friday. So moral of the story if you want to go eat an expensive very oily meal in a run down building with dirty dishes and tables this place is for you. As for me and my wife would won't be returning. Service is not worth the premium and the grill show was mediocre at best.

Tim, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize that our new Birthday Promo has caught you by surprise and the way our server handled the situation. Our new Birthday Promo allows the 50% discount to be redeemed a week before or after the person's birthday excluding Friday and Saturdays. We have done our best to promote this online, but seeing that you were unaware, please email christine.kim@companypi.comm so that we can make things right by honoring the 50% Birthday Discount.

I took my family for my husbands Birthday. The food was good, steak was cute very thin. With the price I wish our chef would have been more interactive. He cooked the food and was gone, waitress was new and we had a very hard time understanding her. For the money I felt it was not worth it.

Long wait and reservation was lost due to online schedule working poorly.
Staff looked frazzled and tried best to be polite under circumstances. Soup and salad are extremely low quality but the hibachi is worth the wait. Recommend without kids and only on special occasion.

They did not have our reservation and they were filled to capacity.
We were placed in a private room that was not ready for customers.
I personally wiped down our dining area, much to the embarrassment of the waitress.
The standard set up wasn’t placed and we had to wait for the chef to retrieve the appropriate serving dishes.
The wrong order of sushi was brought to our table.
We had to wait for our check.
The experience suffered greatly because of them not having our reservation.
Dominoes fell after that.

Their food is always great and the chef is always fun to have. Though it's a bit expensive, it's very much worth it for the amount of food and the experience.
