Disappointed. We used to eat their a lot, but won't any more. They did away with appetizer shrimp and our food was overcooked. Won't be returning any time soon.

Enjoyed my birthday dinner. I was a little worried they were not going to cook infront of me since some places have been doing that. It was just as entertaining as pre COVID. The food was great!

Terrible! This was for my birthday dinner and overall I was not happy with service or the food. We arrived 10 mins early didn’t get seated til 15 mins later. Placed a drink order before food presentation got it after food was cooked. Ask a server about it then was told they didn’t serve that type of drink. Then asked another server. He finally brought it out. After the food was cooked. We were rushed out before I could fully enjoy my drink. I remember the one in Berkeley would do something special for birthdays which is why we came. They didn’t do anything. Did not even offer dessert. I will NEVER go back to this location again. Food was flavorless and not good at all. I had high hopes for this location because it was a little closer I should of just went to Berkeley. Now I know going forward. I would not recommend this location to anyone.

They brought the wrong wine bottle, refuse to change it cause it was already open, then they told me that it will be free, after a while they came and said, “no, it will be just 50% off, after that I Oder one drink, they brought me one that 2 ingredients were missing. Now they offer less food and way more expensive than a year ago.

How horrible has this place turned. First off I went with my entire family of 7. It was my 5 year olds birthday. The lady who checked us in I think was the manager asked me for a birth certificate or passport for him so we could get comped for his dinner. I said I don’t care obviously we are paying for 6 other people. Then she started asking him what date it is today and is it really your birthday. He’s 5! And if people are faking a kids birthday to get a $15 meal sorry but that’s so uncalled for. Zero common sense on her part. Then the restaurant smelled so bad. They need to do a complete make over. Lastly the food quality is horrible. None of us finished our food. We only stayed because the birthday boy wanted the show. Makes me sad to post because we really enjoy supporting local but this experience was disgusting. Get it together Hana Japan. I’ll be going to Yanagi for teppanyaki from now on.

We always have a great meal and a great time. The food is so fresh and perfectly prepared. The servers are attentive. We always feel safe eating here, great COVID protocols (and we rarely eat out). We even took our mother out to eat.

I'm hoping they keep a few of the outdoor tables post-COVID. It's pretty fun to eat outside!

We have been coming hear for over 20 years, mom refuses to go anywhere else on her birthday, this is the first time we have had a complaint. Outdoor seating is hard to accommodate I get it, however to have only 2 waitresses and at least 10 tables is a setup for failure. Make that 1 waitress because ours was clearly overworked and not in the mood to deal with an indecisive confused 80 year old (my mom). We had a 630 rsvp but i dont think the waitress knew which one because she kept calling me jackie and my name is daminna,& i got an email from Open table that we didnt show up? I asked could my 80 year old mom sit in a chair until all of our guests arrived since she said we couldnt be seated until then, she said no so I left mom in the car, I then asked could i have cocktail service while waiting the answer was no, next I was told they couldnt hold the reservation or guarantee the rest of my party was stuck in traffic so I opted to be seated as 2 but made a second rsvp for 730 just in case. Once seated It took over 30 minutes to get drinks then our party arrived we told we would have to pay $10.00 extra per person for them to sit with us even if they dont eat (including a 5 year old) and were told it was too late for them to order food. Mom is starting to suffer from dementia and got upset with the waitress who was snapping at mom so mom snapped at her,she never came back to help us after that I had to flag down the other waitress Maria who was a dear, she brought out drinks brought mom a birthday glass extra forks and seated my family at the second table. Moms bday dinner wasnt free as in years past because they sat us at seperate tables so even though we had 6 people they charged me for two because the others were 30 min late. The food was much better than before however. The takeaway I hope they get is cultural sensitivity has more to do than just race and gender it is also about ability be kind to older people they may not understand you! Im done Hana!

Terrible !!!
Came here with my family for my sons 11th birthday
Overpriced and worst of all No desserts or singing to my son
Offered a expired drumstick ice cream to him
I’m from the Bay Area and was looking forward to this place we are regulars at Benihana and this is by far the worse knock off hibachi restaurant ever !
Save your money and your time ... wish I saved my gas too !!

I had a lovely dinner at Hana Japan last night. We ate outside at their new outdoor teppanyaki tables that sit six. They have created a very safe warm environment with outdoor patio heaters and plexiglass safeguards between the tables and chefs. We have been going to Hana Japan for over twenty years and enjoyed many celebrations with friends and family there. They have a wonderful staff and the service was outstanding. I would highly recommend Hana Japan They have two locations in Dublin and Berkeley. Unfortunately, I have seen restaurants that haven't been following the safety guidelines or are out of business, but Hana Japan isn't one of them. The food was delicious as I remember. The fried rice and their mustard sauce is a personal favorite. So happy to see that they are open. Made another family memory at Hana Japan.

Understand that they are making due with new covid regs. But it was my 10 year olds birthday and they couldn't have cared less. No ice cream no candle no song. But they made sure to charge the 18% gratuity on a party of 5 , 3 adults 2 kids. Food was good. Service was prompt. Just not what it use to be!!! $200 dinner, bring a scoop of ice cream for a birthday girl!!
