The host and waiter was fast and efficient customer service was great
I was extremely disappointed in what Nakato has become based on my experience with the restaurant in years past. What was once a high end hibachi restaurant that stood head and shoulders above Benihana is now a sad substitute to Benihana.
The food quality is very poor and yet the cost is high. The space has not been updated in years and appears dirty and noisy. I have to suspect that Nakato has cut corners and costs in order to stay in business during the pandemic but I cannot believe how bad it was.
I will not be returning.
We went for my boyfriends birthday. It was amazing. The food was great. The staff was so friendly and awesome. I would
definitely go again.
The hibachi is not up to the hype that is out there - and much more expensive than other comparable Hibachi places. Steak, Lobster & Shrimp were all overcooked (Lobster was inedible). Noodles are too salty (teriyaki is salty so this is more of a preference, rather than a criticism). Special requests were not adhered to by the chef and he seemed a bit confused. HOWEVER, the service was very good, attentive and friendly. I have not had any other items at Nakato, so this is only a statement about the hibachi.
The service was great, the experience was awesome, and the food and drinks were outstanding .
Food, drinks, and vibes are always great! I will keep returning lol
Was very ok. Very disappointing. Extremely loud, ridiculous! Had a baby @ the next table that screamed & cried the entire time. Should not be allowed!!!! Ruined the entire experience. The entire experience was too loud to enjoy.
Good vibes and great food !!
Chef was super fun, food was delicious, and the service was outstanding.
Food was great! The chef that we had was very entertaining. The entire staff was nice and the environment was welcoming. We made a reservation online and did not have to wait for our table to be ready. We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday and they made him feel special. The guy that was in charge of Valet Parking was wonderful!!! Experience was amazing. Nakato just gained two regulars. I highly recommend!
I have been a customer for over 20 years. My son wanted to go for his 16th Birthday. They are always busy but Nakatos has always been outstanding on every occasion. Once you try you will keep coming back. I have to say Mr. Robert is our favorite chef and he cooked on my first date with my husband 19 years ago. Always will be like a Cheers to me❤️❤️❤️
Loved it for our family of 6. They were so nice to our son who was turning 11. We will definitely be back!
Lovely dining experience for our family. Attentive service and delicious food!
Everything was great! Would definitely revisit when in town.
Great service, great food and loved the atmosphere. Anthony is an amazing chef!
Too salty !!
Absolutely amazing food and service. Enjoyed everything!
Food was saltier than usual but overall we love this place.
Very good service, however, the noise is a little loud. Family, friendly, the hibachi chef is amazing! Overall a great experience.
The food was flavorful. Even down to the simple rice noodles.
Great food. Not super a showy hibachi. We enjoyed the experience overall.
Everything was perfect, Teppanyaki, Edamame, Tataki, the desserts, Sake, just delicious!!
The food was fine, our hibachi chef was OK, if you knife twirls and the fire flare, but nothing really fun or special like I have seen at other hibachi restaurants. Still doing Covid theater, taking temperatures (Emory University Hospital doesn’t even do this anymore and the CDC says temperature is useless) and requiring masks until you sit at your table. Very expensive. Sushi rolls were good. I would go again for sushi but not hibachi.
Our experience in Nakato restaurant was amazing!
Ana was our server and she was outstanding! She was super attentive and kind.
The food was absolutely delicious and we had an incredible night!
This is such a beautiful place and the food is genuinely the best Japanese food I've tried.
Everything was great!!
I enjoyed Nakato. Loved the garlic noodles. However I was told the private hibachi room was closed only to discover that it was open. I went here for my bday and wanted an intimate experience especially after being on lockdown for a year. To add, I felt the birthday song and dessert were a bit lackluster compared to other celebrations around me. Overall I would give it 4/5 stars.
We had a great time as always and the food was delicious.
Omggggggggggggg I’m convinced they are better than Benihana and hibachi. I loved every bit of it. The best part was the walk up bar while you wait to be seated. 20 stars ✨
First time in-person after the pandemic. Fantastic as always!
Really fun birthday meal - great food and fun atmosphere!
We were celebrating a graduation
I explained to the server that I had a shellfish allergy. She asked if I wanted my food cooked in the back. I said no as long as the chef cooks the shellfish last. She said I’ll let him know. He came out started the sides then the meat and put the shrimp in the middle with everything. I immediately got her attention. She got the manager and he had my food cooked in the back. The chef was offended and put the rice intended for down in front of me. I went to grab it and give it to one of the 4 other people in my party . He grabbed it and threw it out then removed my steak as well. That was totally unnecessary someone else could’ve eaten it. A total waste of food. Then we never got refills. I asked the server were refills included with our drink selection (soda& waters) she said yes but never came back to refill until she came with the check. We do hibachi often as it’s my favorite but this was my first time here. The food was just ok. It wasn’t seasoned well at all. I doubt we’ll ever return.
Delicious food and fantastic service as always!
This is the best dinner I've had in years! Highly recommend to all parties. Incredibly delicious food and even better service. Will be coming back often!
Nakato is very yummy and a fun experience for celebrations
You're definitely paying for what you get. Service and food was exceptional. We will definitely be back.
Great time, service was amazing, MOTHERFUCKING ONION VOLCANO.
The food was great and the service was fantastic. Everything was as you would expect. The atmosphere could use a little work and updating.
My niece had a great time. Thank you!
