    Food was okay, service was terrible. Upon arrival, there was no one at the host stand and waited 15 minutes before hunting down someone to be greeted/sat, even though we had a reservation and arrived on time. Our server brought out appetizers sporadically, with no regard for timing, took our order of drinks wrong, and brought out the remaining appetizers long after the main course was served. Place feels understaffed, making for a mediocre dining experience. Not worth the elevated price.

    Mediocre and place is not kept up well. Ripped booth seats and chipped tables. Unfiltered tap water. Polite servers and apologetic for being understaffed.

    This is one of my favorite chain restaurants. The food is always good, but they're a little lacking in ambiance. It's a great place for a relaxing dinner

    We normally do Korean BBQ, this was a nice change. The same but different. I would go again. The service was nice and with the time limit to dine the food kept coming.

    Great food and great way to interact with others in grilling your food. Would go back for sure. Service was very good but it starts very slowly. If they quickly served drinks for example I would say 5 stars.

    This time the service was very slow and they were out of a lot of items. I ordered a cocktail and it took over 45 min to let me know they couldn’t make my drink because they were out of lime. Server also forgot one of our appetizers. It was an okay experience, took us an hr To get our food.

    Good bbq spot to grill your meal. Very cool experience with good cuts of beef. You don’t have to be good at grilling to enjoy the experience.

    Our first time to this restaurant. Food and quality of the meats and flavor was really good. The staff was very helpful guiding us through the experience of cooking our own meal. One negative was that we were sat a the booth directly in front of the entry door, so every time someone walked in the wind would blow items on our table. We made a reservation and I would have expected a better table compared to someone that just walked in.
