This was a fantastic find! I was skeptical at first because I didn’t want to go somewhere like a hibachi where I’m going to be seated with other people and it wasn’t that way at all! I love that you can cook your meat to your liking. The staff was incredible! If it wasn’t your main hostess filling your drinks or taking empty dishes it was a passerby! The service was impeccable and everyone was so friendly! Happy hour deals are also to die for! I got three drinks for $12 total and they were cocktails!

Our group of three tried this location for convenience after a Broadway matinee.
Overall same delicious grilled food and good service but not as pleasant and caring as the E 53rd location. It was first visit to this kind of restaurant for one of the guests. We enjoyed the Happy Hour Special and they offered a last call. Soba noodles was also tasty aside from the Grilled Specials.

My friend's daughter joined us and enjoyed her tuna volcano. She also loves this restaurant.
A good find if only staff were as nice as the other location.

I made reservation for my first anniversary with my husband and friend. They even didn’t give us enough time to finish foods and push us to pay bills so they can have other guests come in. We ordered a lot even do not have time to cook all. So rude! Never experienced this kind of bad service before. Also we didn’t finish our drinks before we got kicked out. We are disappointed and will tell all friends the bad experience in case you guys ruin more people’s Friday night.

Good for families, parties and tourists but not really a good intimate date place. There are many smaller places that do the same with a better atmosphere and higher quality service and food.

Great food. Menu with photos to see what you will eat because no explanation offered. Some of the beef and porc is quite fatty. 50% discount on drinks during happy hour!! Kids really enjoyed grilling their own food and the s’mores was the great final touch! Noisy

We had a great time - we were looking for a fun evening and decided that grilling yourself at the table fit the bill. The staff is attentive and friendly we never lacked for a clean grill or a good time.

My family and I had dinner here after going to the NYC international auto show. It was also my birthday. The food was amazing especially the skirt steak! Our 2 year also enjoyed the cooking at the table.

Went there for the first time with my best friend after seeing so many people rave about it, including my coworkers. Our server was very attentive despite how busy the restaurant was and helpful in answering questions that we had. The Gyu Kaku Premium was a great choice and ended up filling us up despite how hungry we were. We are looking forward to going to this establishments other locations to get a better feel of how it is overall. We were impressed with our first experience nonetheless

It was okay. We enjoyed the novelty of it but, on the whole, the meal was a bit on the meager side though tasty.

Another restaurant with the idiotic policy of not seating you until everyone in the party has arrived, no matter what. My wife and I, who are senior citizens, told the hostess that the third member of the party was caught in traffic and was on her way and would definitely be there shortly. Plus, the restaurant had a number of unoccupied tables. No dice, we had to wait in a very crowded and uncomfortable waiting area. The food was fine, but who cares? If my patronage and comfort is so little valued, there are 10,000 other places in Manhattan who would be glad to have me. Cross this one off my list.

This was our 2nd time dining. We decided to upgrade to the Kobe for 2. It was well worth it! Every bite was amazing!! Highly recommend it.. My wife & willl be back for a birthday or special occasion. Great service as well. Very attentive on drink refills and clearing dirty plates. We were in the front part of the restaurant and enjoyed our experience.

Huge portions of delicious food. We had the premium prix fixe, which was way too much food for two people (a good thing, at the end of the day). Buy drinks at the bar before you are seated: all day Happy Hour. Our server was wonderful, and changed our grill 3 times to keep it clean. A fun experience!

I have been here in the past. Food was good and service was decent then. This time food and service are down by a lot. The whole time We were there felt like they can’t wait to get us out. It’s not very relaxing meal at all. Won’t come back here again.
