Great late night happy hour with food and drink specials. Love the small plates and especially the bbq and appetizers. Had to wait 30-40 minutes for our reservations even though they have a sign that they only hold reservations for 15 minutes. Somehow their rules don't apply to the restaurant only their guests! When we tried to get the manager to get us a round of drinks while waiting they refused. After all that the server rushed us out because the kitchen was closing! Then seat us on time! We wanted more food but were not allowed to order.

The food was good but not great. The wagu beef was not very good at all especially considering the price. I thought the short ribs was better.

Very pleasant experience. My friend and I ordered 3 types of meat each which was plenty. Including four glasses of soda and two bowls of rice, the total came to be around 110$ including gratuity. Also there are combos available for 2-6 people, all around 30-40$ per person. Would definitely go again.

The service was bad. The servers do not help you at all on how to use the grill and how long to cook the meat etc. While we were dining there, a server plainly yelled at saying “your meat is burning!!” while offering no help whatsoever.

Eaten at 3rd ave. and E vill. locations. Still a good deal, meat lovers lunch 12.95 but the meats, tbqh, were sometimes very fatty (low end), to the extent that the grill flared up from all the burning fat. My lunch martini came before my daughter's beer..not good, and the bowls for the garlic noodles came after we started eating them, not alongside, as should be. Still a good deal, though.
