Great food. Very nice staff. Our server Ling was so attentive and very high energy. She was able to ensure we had everything we needed. The chef was great and funny. Food was flavorful and delicious!!!! We will be back
Nakato always has the freshest fish and best sections.
Owner is the nicest woman in the industry as her staff are the best.
This restaurant has set the standards for COVID dining.
Loved the food as usual. Definitely will be back!!
Very friendly. Delicious food. A great experience. I highly recommended Nakato.
Food was well seasoned. Greeter and host was great. Lot of food. Experience was great.
The best Hibachi experience in Metro ATL. Very organized, following COVID-19 safety guidelines, delicious food, prompt and attentive customer service. We ended up here, because Benihana had no availability!
So much better than Benihana..I won't go back to Benihana again. You may pay a little more than a visit to Benihanas, but it is totally worth it. More menu options and food tastes better
I will return
I always enjoy Nakato's, it seems to be a little different due to Covid. But the food was great.
I can't believe how much they have increased the prices! The food is still really good and the service was excellent. But $70 per person?!?! I only recommend if it's a special day/night out for dinner due to the costs.
It was excellent experience!
Love this place our server and cook was great!!! Excellent customer service and great food
The whole evening was great. We invited some close friends to dine with us. The only issue of the night the food was very salty. My last 3 visits were perfect the food the atmosphere was GREAT. One bad night with the food I won't complain to much. Over all everyone had a great time.
Always love my dinning experience at Nakato’s!!!!!
Great service despite it being Valentine’s Day ! COVID distancing was enforced . Rachel was a outstanding waitress, very diligent and attentive to food allergy concerns .
With everything going on in the world today, my wife and I had a great time enjoying our dinner. Everything was great
Great atmosphere and great ambience Only thing I will say is the chef didn't speak or engage much but it wasn't a big deal. Will definitely be returning.
I was kinda disappointed because I thought your party could all sit together but everything else was great
This location's prices was twice as much as the other location we visit (frequently). Food quality was not as good as the others and menu is not as complete. I would expect a same source chain as high as this one to have matching menu's.
I would recommend, just not this location (Atlanta). It was very disappointing.
Great service and appreciate the social distance and precautions put in place. Food was great, only little disappointment was the YumYum sauce has changed from previous visits and not as good in my opinion.
Everything was fine except the horrid person next to us, chatting on her two mobile phones the whole meal, whining about "noodles on separate plate only, no onion or mushroom in the vegetables" etc. ad naseum.
Great food & times as usual!
The filet was very good but the chicken was very chewy. I wasn't a fan of the rice at all and we ordered our veggies with no onion and got them anyway. The only thing I really enjoyed was the steak, compared to the restaurant where I live it was very mediocre.
The service was great....the waited and the cook worked well together!
Date night out!
Enjoyed the fact that they have taken all precautions to keep everyone safe with real dividers all the while social distancing.
Our chef cooked our food to taste and as requested.
Flavorful and delicious.
Missed not having my favorite wine, Sangue di guida but the replacement from Italy was just as good.
A1 for a pandemic night out
I have gone to Nakatos several times. I can honestly say the atmosphere has changed because of Covid. The chefs weren't as engaging and obviously due to the limited seating and having partitions we just felt like the atmosphere wasn't the same. However, they still tried really hard to make the service and food be spectacular. They succeeded! I love the food and the best is the Tripple Nakato (which has filet, shrimp, and chicken). It was really special and you leave full!
Great experience as always
The overall experience was poor, the place seems to come off as a nice Japanese steakhouse... Reservations required, strict covid rules, valet parking only, etc. however the food and overall experience is very below average for hibachi anywhere much less Atlanta. I’ve been to a better hibachi restaurant in Macon, GA. The waitress was great, but the cook was very unentertaining and seemed to cook everything in a rush. Leaving us with a short show and undercooked Veggies and noodles. I really have no clue how this place has above 3 stars. Will not return.
It was great! Food was amazing
A bit overpriced compared to similar 'Hibachi' style restaurants. Otherwise, the food and service will always be great. Just a bit expensive when I can go elsewhere for the same experience at a fraction of the price.
Love this place! Food is always so good and place full of smiling faces.
The best hibachi I’ve ever had and great service! Coming here made my birthday
We enjoyed the food but we were underwhelmed with the service. Drinks took forever to order and receive and the chef was unimpressive. However, the hibachi was delicious!
Hi Christina, We are so sorry that you had that experience. During the past 48 years we have been known for providing a fabulous dining experience for our guests and we are so sorry that we fell short in the service area. We will definitely work with your server and chef to make this doesn't happen again and greatly appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We hope you will dine with us again soon so we can demonstrate the type of dining experience we are so proud of.
Excellent food on the griddle table with amazing sushi to start.
I love the food and the experience!!
Great food, great service, great environment. Had a great night!
We were seated in a timely fashion and the food was cooked shortly after we were seated and was very delicious!
My children live Hibachi but this experiencing was amazing. First to have to take our shoes off was so authentic and amazing m. The food was fresh and the birthday girl felt special. That is out née Hibachi spot!!!!❤️❤️❤️
The ambiance was good but the food was overpriced and not good honestly. I wanted to like this place but they serviced angel hair pasta and tried to pass it off as lo mein!!! And they had corn in their fried rice (which is an up charge) ...I’ve never seen or heard of such a thing. Needless to say we won’t be back.
We are so sorry that you felt this way, as our guests have absolutely loved our fried rice and hibachi noodles - which are both long-time favorite family recipes. We hope you will consider coming back and dining with us in our Garden Dining Room, where we would be happy to make recommendations for authentic Japanese dishes we think you'd enjoy. Happy Holidays from the Nakato Family.
Best Hibachi in Atlanta!
