Entertainment started right on time. They really know how to handle the crowd. Cook very entertaining. Veggies were excellent. We ordered salmon and calamari. Both were overcooked. If you go make sure the cook listens to your request.

we felt they were short staffed.........a long time between soup and salad and dinner. We have previously eaten at the one in Fenton and I think the portions were larger and there was not waiting period. We have had carryout previously from the Clarkston and we will definitey go back but there was a difference.

This is our fisrt time here. They were very accommodating when I needed to increase the party size. I did have to call the restaurant directly because the OpenTable app wouldn’t let me change it without changing the time. Everyone was very friendly, the food was good with more than enough to eat. The chef was fun to watch and cooked our steaks exactly how we wanted them. Fun place to eat with friends.

Our group of 13 family members had a great time. We enjoyed the hibachi grill entertainment and the delicious cuisine. The food was a healthy option to celebrate my 100 pound weight loss with my family. I would definitely recommend them to others.

We went here for our son's 13th birthday party. The family loved the food. My wife and I had sushi which was excellent. The hibachi grill had way too much butter for our tastes so the sushi was a great option.

We were immediately greeted by a not so friendly bartender who was extremely rude. For a $7 drink, it was made very poorly.
Our waitress seemed nice, at first. Our chef was extremely hard to understand and did not cook our food as requested. 5/7 of our group ordered steak. It was extremely chewy and everyone's over cooked, even when we checked with the chef several times what type of cook we wanted. We very politely told the waitress about the steaks, who was less than helpful. When paying that much for food/experience, I expect more than mediocore- which is what I would rate my experience overall. We will not be returning.

Started out rocky, as our party of 7 was crammed elbow to elbow with another group. Also the ceiling was dripping on a member of our party. We requested another table and after 20 minutes were moved to a table less crowded. The rest of the evening was great! Will definitely return.

Although the food and the chef were fantastic, I will not go back because of the rude behavior of our server. From the moment we sat down he made us feel very rushed, like he just wanted to turn tables as fast as he could. We barely sat down and he wanted to take our drink orders. He brought the soup and salad out at the same time, and delivered the bill right when we started eating. We hadn't eaten half of our meal and he was handing us boxes for our leftovers. When we spend $160 on dinner, we expect much better service.

Our chef wasn't as fun as the others.. we had several kids of all ages at our table and noticed the other chef's were more engaging with the kids..I think he was upset because our group didnt want "grill butter" and that complicates things . There was a metal latch under the table by where the kids were sitted that fell off and kept hitting their legs. thank goodness they were kids and handles it well

Love going to this Saganos because compared to the others around you get sat and fed a lot faster. They have some new chefs it seems so it's not as entertaining as the other saganos we've been to because of the lack of experience so if you are just going for the entertainment then I would say go to a different location or just give the new chefs a little time to get more experience.

Had to wait about 25 minutes though we had 7pm reservations. The Hibachi Chef that we had was very entertaining. The food was very good and you get a lot . We all took leftovers home. It is pricey but I would go back . They need to work on the decor- needs some updating.
