I understand the world and the social gathering. I called as well
As made a reservation. No one called to tell us that they was shutting down. We drove an hour to get there tell us. The last person was the customer before us. My grand babies was so disappointed. It was the way they turned us away. Not the reason could not even make a Togo order . It was way before the state guide line of 8pm
Cut off

We had a great dinner at Kabuto for my husband's birthday. The food was delicious and our chef was entertaining. We loved the option to share our meal with our daughter for only $3. We still went home with about three additional servings of leftovers!

Our reservation was for 6. Didn’t get seated until until 7. Very noisy and crowded. They need a speaker to call out your name when table is ready. We had to keep going to the host stand so we didn’t get overlooked. Not very organized to say the least.
Our chef and food was good but not as entertaining as our last visit.

We love it every time we come here! Be sure to make a reservation beforehand! Great food and my boys love that they cook it in front of us while making it fun and involving them!

It was a suprise for my husband for his birthday, would not seat us unless the party was all there. Then when we decided not to wait, they said our other guests couldnt join if they came later. Terrible experience my first time and last time therr.

Our Hibachi Chef, Jeff, was amazing! Very interactive with the whole table. I’ve done hibachi dining at least 50-60 times, and this has been one of my favorite out of all of them because of him!

My only suggestion would be to reduce the amount of dressing on the starter salad, and to actually include onions in their onion soup.

Absolutely amazing service and experience!

We love going, the staff and chefs are amazing and always put on a great show. Especially kid friendly even more so when they aren’t super busy. As far as noise yes it’s noisy but one should expect that. They are cooking at the table and with 4 tables to a room it does get a little loud. It’s part of the show!

Have been waiting nearly 5 mos for them to pay dry cleaning bill they agreed to pay after ruining my sweater. They’ll no longer discuss.

We had reservations on a Monday and were seated 25 minutes after. Took 15 minutes to get drinks and have our order taken. Our chef was mediocre. Our food drenched in oil, soy sauce and teriyaki and too salty. Waitress was very inattentive. We refilled our own drinks and asked for lemon twice and never got it. Went to the restroom and two of the toilets were clogged. The toilet that wasn’t clogged was out of toilet paper. There was trash and hand towels on the floor from the overflowing trash bin. We will not be back.

Cook messed up who got what and actually took shrimp off a plate and gave it to the strangers next to us. Rice was not cooked and the only vegetables we got were potatoes and carrots. No
Mushrooms, onions, zucchini or squash. Never seen that before.

I love Kabuto's and I go there quite often. I went with about 5 friends to celebrate my birthday. The drinks and food was great, the only thing is the chef didn't perform any type of entertainment.I was really surprised because every time we come the chef is usually very interactive with the guest. I was very disappointed being that it was such a special occasion.
