    We went for an early dinner and we had the place to ourselves. We've been going at least once a week since the beginning of February because the food is delicious and the staff is friendly and entertaining! The prices were great too!

    The servers here are amazing! We went here twice in one week, and the first time we were there, we told them my birthday was on the next weekend. We went on the day before my birthday, and two servers remembered it was my birthday!

    The hibachi experience & food were stellar! Arguably the best fried rice we have ever had. The service was also fantastic as the staff was active in cleaning up and refilling drinks. We plan to return and bring our friends and family with us in the future 😄

    The only thing that saved this place from a completely bad rating was the cooked food, everything else was so terrible: dirty appliances, cracked glasses, chipped plates, unsmiling staff, an old shabby interior and an inappropriate price for all this

    This place is not good. Very expensive menu. Hibachi show was pathetic and there were many newcomers to the experience that didn't see a good showing. Not sure how JOJO has such a high OpenTable rating

    Over priced food. The place was empty on a Saturday night!! Then they tipped themselves 17.5% calling it Service Charge for a dinner for 2!! Then they had additional lines for more tips!! Never going back. Maybe others don't go there due to this too.

    The outside of the place looked horrible but the inside was nice. The food was okay I expected the food to be better. I was also expecting a show like other hibachi places but didn’t get that. I won’t go back there again.

    1st time here and didnt like the portion of the food too expensive for for the small portion of the entree. I reserved online it sounded professional it asked for reason of reservation, I put down for our 11th anniversary. At the time of dessert we asked if they could write happy anniversary. They said No, but they could add a candle I said no thank you and either way they lighted one up. I disliked that. Also they have no cocktails but a mojito. It was okay but we would not come back here. Being other places with habachi with much better of what I described here. Sushi was the only thing we really liked!

    It was like that Seinfeld episode. I had a reservation then was told it would be 30 to 40 minute wait. What is the point of a reservation? Waited 20 minutes and there was no way it was going to be up in 10. Plus others came in without reservations and they were told 10 minutes. We Left. Not pleased. Went to adoke and had a great time and food

    Reservation wasn’t ready at the time scheduled through OpenTable. Waited an additional 45 minutes for a table. In fact, I don’t think they even checked to see if they had reservations in OpenTable until I arrived because the host seemed clueless until I told him I had an OpenTable reservation. If this wasn’t a birthday celebration and I had other family members with us I would have just left. After that the food was great as well as the “show”. Just don’t schedule too tightly with your reservation and you’ll be fine.

    The space was warm on a very cold evening. The food was delicious and the portions were fantastic! We had healthy left overs! The chef was fun!! We were 4 adults and 2 kids and everyone had an incredible time! All the adults agreed that this place was much better than that other national hibachi chain restaurant. This is definitely on the go to list for us.
