We dined at a private table instead of the hibachi grill. The menu had a nice variety of sushi, appetizers, and entrees. The food was delicious; the beef was very tender and juicy. Our waiter was prompt and friendly. My only complaint was the lights; I don't like dark restaurants. I know they were trying to create a certain type of ambiance, but I prefer to be able to see my food without squinting.

The decor and location of this restaurant was great. The food and service didn't live up to the decor and location. We were a party of three and the only ones in the hibachi area. The server didn't seem to know the menu. It took a very long time to receive our food and for the chef to come out to cook our food. Food was lacking seasoning and flavor. We have had much better service and quality of food and taste at other Japanese Steakhouse.

Expect to pay $40-50 per person when all added up. I am not sure the the good food and okay service was worth that much.

Overall it was a good experience. It wasn't as entertaining as I thought it would be maybe because of the people we were sitting with. But food was delicious :)

We dined on the Sushi side of the restaurant. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable, and hit the balance, providing excellent service without pestering. We had several rolls, as well as the 15 piece Sashimi appetizer, ordered as halt tuna, and half salmon. They actually served us 16 pieces of fish, I was curious how that would do it, and they chose the high road.he rolls were excellent and well balanced, and the Sashimi well sliced and served perfectly, with no connective tissue evident in the tuna, and succulent sweet salmon.

We asked for them to take their Hurricane roll, Tuna, Avocado, Roe, and Wasabi wrapped in Nori without rice and make it spicy, and they came through, I hope they remember what they did because I want it again!

My only complaint is that I had a reservation for 7pm and it was 7:20pm before I was seated.

This was our second visit to Hayashi, and while the sushi was very good overall, we were disappointed in the Lenny's roll because the shrimp tempura (inside the roll) was stale. Our server - wish we could remember her name - was great, however. If only we could have ejected the diner near us who spent a good portion of the evening talking loudly and profanely on his phone...

Hayashi was an overall wonderful and fun experience. I could tell how much the kids at our table enjoyed it. Very entertaining at the grill.
