Too loud, non stop screaming. Food was great, felt like the chuckle cheese of Japanese steak houses.
Fun, some energy all good, this was ridiculously loud and unnecessary.

I've eaten there at least a dozen times and would go back again. Everytime food and service has been good. My only complaint is the noise level get way to high to the point you can't even talk to the person next to you. It would be nice to have room dividers between all the Hibachi tables.

The food and service was amazing, but we didn’t get sat until over an hour past our reservation time because they were still seating reservations before us even though they were showing up late. Which pushed everyone else back. I feel like they should seat the people who are there ON TIME for their reservation instead of making people wait because others were late.

Poor waitressing. Manager is rude. Chef was awesome but that’s about it. Tried to ask a manager a question and ended up being told to just leave.

Honestly we used to come here all the time. We will not be coming back. The grill was dirty and we were the first ones. I understand the under staff but I called and was told to make a reservation because it gets so busy. There was no one. We had to wait 15 mins just to get our drinks.

It was ridiculous. I’m so sorry it’s gone downhill. Not sure what’s happening to clarkston but it’s not the same.

The wait staff and chef were great! Lots of food for the price. Everything except the salad was very salty. I usually like salty food and it was even it was too salty for me, especially the soup.

We went to celebrate a birthday. We had a party of 12, so they split us between two hibachi tables which we expected. However, the server for my table was horrible. She didn’t return between getting our first drinks and when the chef had prepared the food. She handed out to go boxes and the checks five minutes after the chef finishes cooking. The chef was amazing but the service was so horrible it ruined the night. She knew that as a large table her tip was guaranteed at 18% and she simply ignored us. We will not return.

Food was great, service was great once seated. Got there at 6:55 for a reservation we had for 7. Was told whole party needed to be there by 7:15 or reservation was canceled. Rest of party got there at 7:05 which is fine. But then had to wait about 30 mins to even be seated. We made the reservation so we wouldn't have to wait. Then to be told the reservation would be canceled and we still had to wait kind of annoyed me. I have no problem with waiting. I know every business is short staffed right now. Just don't be a stickler to us if you're not holding up your end. Overall everything else went smoothly. That's my only complaint.

Our server was awful our chef was great. I understand there is a staff shortage but when I made a reservation in advance and I paid close to $300 for dinner I expect at least good service. Because we had 6 people we were charged automatic gratuity of 18%, which is fine when the service is worth it. I spoke to the manager explaining our disappointment and that I wanted the option to change the tip amount; we had already tipped the chef cash. All she could say was sorry we are short staffed and the tips includes the chef and bussers. I explained we already tipped the chef and we never seen a busser until the very end when he brought out boxes. I am over the excuse we are short staffed, my suggestion is only take what you can handle. This is very a sad time we live in so when people are going out spending this much for a dinner great service is a must!

The chef was delightful. The fried rice had no taste. It was too loud to talk to one another and the floors were slick from cooking oil.

I’ve eaten here twice. I got the scallops the first time and the steak the second time. I feel the steak was better than the scallops, but both were over cooked. It is also pretty loud

Our chef was fantastic!! He made it fun for everyone at the table. The waitress was not so attentive. They had plenty of servers. We had to clear our own bowls and empty cups and getting refills was tough. Overall we go there for the food and that was excellent.
