    The meal was good with a generous amount of food. My wife mentioned the cocktails were not strong enough. At the end of the meal when the check arrived I was charged a 18% surcharge which was considered the tip. My wife and I are African-American and there was a party of four males Caucasians which were seated with us. Upon reviewing their check they mentioned that they were not charged the same surcharge as I was. Both parties motioned for the waiter to explain why was I charged a surcharge and the other group wasn't. The waiter stated that sometimes they forget to charge the surcharge. We then proceeded to ask to speak with management for an explanation. Another person came over and stated the same thing. I spoke with the other party and they stated could it have been because I had a reservation or maybe because I paid with a credit card. Mind you my bill was $181 and the other party's bill was $360. As both parties discussed the issue the other party stated maybe it was a racial profiling concern so that they would receive enough for the tip. I stated the same thing since they were not charged the surcharge. Upon leaving the restaurant I was still not satisfied with their answer about the surcharge. I went back to talk with the cashier and voiced my concern for the charge. She stated she did not know why I was charged a surcharge and the other party was not. This has left me with concerns about the restaurant and its policies about charging customers.

    It was our first time at JO JO's and we were extremely excited. The sushi was probably the best thing about dinner. The prices are a bit high. We had Mai Tai's and they were just very sweet juices (like drinking orange juice). We ordered steak and shrimp, steak and scallops, and a steak hibachi dinner and the best thing about it was the steak. The rice was very bland, the noodles had a sweet dressing on them and the shrimp tasted a bit rubbery. The food was average but the service and the cook were very attentive. I guess it's like my husband says, you go to these places for the experience mostly, but It would have been nice if the food and drinks were also good!

    Despite having a reservation, we were told upon arrival that they wouldn’t be able to have the cook begin for at least an hour. With two young kids dining with us, that wasn’t going to work. We ended up going to another hibachi restaurant that was able to seat us immediately despite not having a reservation. They need to do a better job of managing their reservations.

    The crab and the salmon were absolutely disgusting - they were old and stinky, not fit for consumption. I ordered a soup that was supposed to come with some chicken and vegetables... they forgot the chicken. Once the chicken arrived, it was raw.

    We were seated very close to reservation time, which was good. Service and food was good. Sushi was rolled to tick but the fried rice was delicious. Ambience is missing. All in all, a good experience.

    We got there at 6:25 for a 6:30 reservation and were finally seated about 20 minutes later. They only serve beer and wine. The calamari was very rubbery. The sushi was so so. The rice and vegetables were good, so I would recommend ordering the vegetable stir fry. The chicken and beef were also so so. Overall A very so so dinner. There are plenty of other habatchi places near enough that I doubt I would go again.

    We decided to hit up JoJos for a girls night. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. Extra portions made for delicious leftovers. They offered to sit us at an additional table so we could stay and continue talking and catching up.Very happy with our evening.

    Jo Jo’s is primarily a hibachi restaurant with lots of families or large groups. It has a good sushi selection and pricing is comparable to other sushi restaurants.

    We came here to celebrate our son’s birthday with friends. The food was outstanding. The service was top notch. The only recommendation I would have is that the music seemed a bit too loud and did not match the atmosphere of the environment. The large TVs were a bit of a distraction. Other than that it was great and we are already making plans to return. :)

    We were told to move from our seats for a bigger party, they didn’t ask but instead they told us to move. I felt that they should have asked us instead since I requested on my reservation to be in front of the grill.

    Great first-time experience at Jo Jo's! Everything we expected from a hibachi dining experience, including melt-in-your-mouth filet ... except a liquor license. But we knew this before we went, so we brought our own bubbly to help celebrate our wedding anniversary. We'll be back.

    Sugar bowl and soy sauce container was filthy. Bits of fried rice were over cook like pebbles. Salad dressing was not good like ginger dressing at competitors. Steak was cooked very well. Vegetables ok. Overall not nearly as good as competitors like Adoke. Half as good but not half the price

    They didn't pay any attention for our reservations. When they opened up there was a line & no-one asked if you had a reservation. I asked for the manager & the one I was talking to was the manager. He was the one who never asked if anyone had a reservationsThey also had full restaurant & didn't pay attention to covid. He told us that we'd have to wait to get served for 15min. A server heard him & got us a table off to the side. He was great but the steak I ordered was very dry tasting & well done & I asked for medium rare. My grandson ordered the steakdone the same way & it also was well done.My husband ordered the filet & that was very good. My daughter & other grandson ordered sushi & loved it. There was no social distancing
