It takes us around close to 1 hour to be able to eat dinner and this is in weekday night. We have reservation at 6.45 pm and we didn’t even get to sit until 7.10. And even the I have to check with the lady in front because at first she told ya that we will get our seats in 15 min but at 7.00 she said that there are a party in front of us. I have to tell her that our reservation is for 6.45 then she has to check and said oh yeah that’s true. If I didn’t check with her she might have given our seat to other parties.

Had a great time celebrating my birthday with my daughter. We opted not to do the show this time because we’ve seen the same exact show at three different teppanyaki chain restaurants. Maybe you have to teach your chefs to do some tricks thats unique to your restaurant or some new trick and switch it up more often.
Good luck!

I used to go quite frequently but, my past few experiences haven’t been good. At all . The past time my rice was hard,HARD, food wasn’t as flavorful as normal, also the waitress didn’t come around not ONE time and ask did we need a refill or ANYTHING. By the end of our 2 hours there a different waitress asked us were we ok and then a DIFFERENT waitress brought my bill. ALSO I asked the chef to throw a broccoli for my daughter to catch(shes 4& “the fire restaurant is her absolute favorite ) she had been raving about it the entire time. He told me he’s sorry he can’t I should have asked him earlier.im sorry but I’m pretty sure I’ve NEVER asked for that they chefs always just do that. So on top of that I was charged a Gratuity Charge for 3adults & 2 small children ages 4 & 2 who didn’t even order a meal! I spent 200$ that night I took my little brother out to celebrate .Im very disappointed.

Once seated, they moved us to another table for a 'better table'. We sat for one hour. No chef. No explanation. Then they said the grill was not ready even though it sizzled when another at our table set their drink accidentally on it. No offer of drinks or anything. The manager comes and pretends to be lighting the grill. Then the chef comes out not prepared. He served cold broccoli and my 12 yr old raw beef. Then the capper: an automatic ĺ18% gratuity on the bill (party of 5 - really?) no birthday discount because our party was not 6 or more. For as loud it was, no manager service and poor meal, Never again.

Service:

Table service is slow due to the ratio of customers to waiters/waitresses. But our waiter always came to check up on us even if it took 10-15 minutes.

Teppanyaki service was awesome even though it was rushed. Our chef was funny and season and cooked to perfection.

Food:

DELICIOUS.

Value:

Expensive but worth the splurge once in a while.

Overall, it was a great first time experience. Who knew garlic fried rice, made with BUTTER, can be so tasty! If you have patience and love butter on everything, this place is worth checking out.

The restaurant didn't have enough chefs which meant that the service was extremely slow. Our chef finally arrived at our table more than a hour after our reservation.
The food was well-prepared and the chef took care due to an allergy in our party to cook our food first to avoid any cross contamination. While we appreciated the attention and the quality of the food, the lack of adequate staff dampened our enthusiasm.

Good entertainment for cook in front of you food. The dining area was loud and cold. We were about 100 ft from the front door, but every time it opened a cold blast of air traveled through the restaurant. The food tasted fine, average dinner price was $30 a person just for entree. So it added up fast. My son liked the fire ball, and I guess that is the main reason we went. The $130 for 3 of us could have gone farther somewhere else. I would go back for the show, but I only need to spend that much 1 or 2 times a year there.
