Excellent food and excellent service. The music was very loud when we arrived and then someone turned the volume up! We couldn't hear each other across the table. As soon as I mentioned it to the waiter, they turned the music off! Not complaining at all! This was a great place to eat. I highly recommend

I think because it was close to closing time, everything was very rushed. For it to be my first time I didn’t like that.

This spot is great for almost any occasion, but I think a large group fares better with the value and experience. It’s a social meal, and you’re involved in the preparation and selections as you grill.

First time at this location & the service and food were good just like their other locations. The servers were friendly and fast. The food was delicious. The only drawback from this location is that they don't have enough air circulation so it gets pretty hot inside.

We went on Valentine's Day, so the service was not as excellent as I'm sure it is on a typical day. The wait with a reservation was about 15 min, and during the whole meal, you felt rushed as they were trying to clear tables. Our grill was set on high to cook everything quicker, which burned a lot of the food. The restaurant is beautiful, the food is good. The experience was just not the best for a romantic date.

The food & experience was great. However, our waiter did take a long time to return to our table with the items we ordered. It took over 20min to get our drinks & we had to cancel our sake order since it took way to long to arrive.

We love coming here. We come for special occasions or just because we’re craving it. My husband has requested it for two birthdays and we had our rehearsal dinner here. Everyone we bring here loves it! Great for a dinner date or a night out with friends. Get one of the package meals you’ll leave stuffed. Get the harami in pot, delicious! Smore’s are a hit with kids and adults.

We normally come here for special occasions and this time it was not the greatest.
Food is good as always but the service was crappy and not to mention the miso soup we ordered had metal shavings inside, the manager came out and gave us a new miso soup and a was supposed to have a complimentary dessert which we never got.
The server started off with an attitude and that tried make it better thru out the night but the first impression did it for me.
