    If you’re looking for an inexpensive, nice portions, quick lunch restaurant and don’t care about service, then this is def the place to try. Lunch menu is inexpensive, generous and tasty. Service was unfriendly, but efficient. There was an overall annoyed, unwelcoming atmosphere. The look the staff gave us when we asked for forks was quite rude. It wasn’t just our wait staff, it was the front desk as well. They had issues finding our reservation. We collect the points, so we wanted to make sure they checked us in properly. No issue with getting seated, place was mostly empty, but they couldn’t care less when we politely mentioned repeatedly that the app didn’t show that we checked in. Then the waitress said that it was taken care of, then , on checkout, front hadn’t taken care of it, kept saying no reservation, then found the reservation after all. They didn’t handle it in a professional manner at all. The person exhibited a negative attitude in trying to ascertain the issue. Again, good service isn’t their forte, but the food was good, portions generous. Food came fast and was fresh. Hibachi Steak was the only meal that didn’t taste as good. The steak was of poor quality. Excellent taste on the chicken tempura, chicken teriyaki bento boxes and fried rice. Here’s hoping that the team was having an off day, because we tend to be some of the politest costumers one can have and always leave 50-100% tips. Service had been much better on a previous occasion.

    So disappointed. We came here for my triplets' 18th birthday last night and were ready for the typical hibachi experience - interactive and fun. I let the restaurant know that this was a birthday when I made the reservation, as well, and we had a party of 5 which made up most of the table; another party of 3 sat with us. Our hibachi chef came up to the table, cooked our food in silence, never handed out the sauces (if you've had hibachi, you know the sauces are crucial), and left. Just before packing up he tried to finally interact and do the sake bottle squirt but at that point we were just sitting there wondering what the heck just happened. We had to ask a server for the sauce bowls and only then did the chef finally (after everything was cooked and it was over) come fill them. The other party with us was also shocked and disappointed - they had brought a family member for her first hibachi experience and couldn't believe how bad this was. It was especially highlighted by the fact that every other table around us was enjoying the expected hibachi experience - while we ate in awkward silence as he just cooked. Another table also had a birthday and got the full birthday treatment while my kids watched. So strange. The drinks were also watered down and not good. Food was decent, not great, but worsened by the fact that we could have ordered takeout and had a better experience. I am usually an excessive tipper - 25% or more as I worked in the service industry for many years. This was such a bad experience that we did not leave a tip - and I never, ever do that. Just all around bad, and we won't be back. If a family of five is spending several hundred dollars to do hibachi, you need to make sure you're providing the experience that is part of hibachi. It's not just about food on plates!

    Delicious sushi and sashimi from an expansive menu. The yellowtail with jalapeño and the monster roll were standouts. But everything was delicious. Great service too!

    Made our reservation in advance for Hibachi. Called an hour before to confirm the reservation and was told we were all set. The place was very busy when we got there and when the chef finally came over he was in such a rush to finish and move on. The majority of the time he had his back to us and cooked all the food on the other peoples table and did not cook anything on our grill. Disappointing.

    Really good food, prompt respectful service. Hibachi is a little loud, and the meal for four came to around 160$ with tip, and drinks, (we had fried rice nine sushi rolls, miso, house salad, scorpion bowl, 22oz sapporo). always recommend, for quality and flavor, the price is honestly worth it. The paint job is terrible but, really, who cares?

    Floors were slippery because of the grease. Sushi was mediocre. Received the wrong order, and the restaurant staff made sure to send out a new roll. Some family members were unsatisfied with our Hibachi service, as our server burnt our food.

    Upon entering and being led to our hibachi table our first impression was it was filthy. There was fried leftover food on many parts of the grill and counter. This was not what I expected to see on this special occasion of my granddaughters graduation from college. We had brought a cake with us after calling to see if it was ok,and no one knew what to do with it. As we realized later they took the cake and stored it for us while we ate. Unfortunately it was stored next to a heat source and melted all the decorations and frosting,a $150 cake. We’ve eaten there before and it was very good,certainly not this time. Never again!

    This restaurant is wonderful. It’s in an old house and has great atmosphere with a very cute high up porch. I was envious of the customers sitting there but I had a big party and was heading for hibachi. The food and chef were great. The drinks were great Overall I loved it I wish I discovered it sooner

    The sushi was great and there were unique options to choose from. The hibachi was ok and over priced. You are given a lot of rice and a small portion of meat. I asked for medium rare but most of it was more well done. The staff was nice but not extremely friendly. I have had friendlier wait staff at restaurants that are considered lower end. They did accommodate a small request I had so I did give them a better rating for this. We tipped well above 20%. If a friend asked to go here..then yes, if you like sushi and want unique options.

    Food was okay, water tasted and smelled like chemicals. Waitress was quite distant and didn't check in on us often. We felt like a burden to the waitress for merely being there. Won't go back which is a shame because the menu looked like it was worth trying everything.
