    Wow! Love the food and the beautiful remodel! We have enjoyed TK for 30 years and it's excellent. Eat the salad with ginger dressing because it is delicious. The filet is also excellent. Recently, they started opening on weekends for lunch, also.

    It took them 35 minutes to take our order, my son and I just sat there while we were completely ignored. The cook was nice but the food was super bland. They all seem to cook differently which shouldn’t be the case, they should all be on the same page. Some days the food is delicious, others it’s bland and gross. For what you pay, one should have the same experience every time. Lastly, it’s significantly over priced. It’s just not what it used to be. I’m extremely disappointed. Not sure I’ll be going back.

    I was a little nervous due to mixed reviews but our experience was a good one. Staff was polite and they wore masks and gloves. The interior is a 1000 times better than it used to be and the food is back up to par. Last time we came pre-pandemic, it was really going downhill. In so glad it's back!!

    The new renovations are great. The food is still amazing. The seating was a little too crowded, though. I completely understand that it takes a while to prep food and get everything cooked, but it was two hours before we started eating. If we could have gotten our appetizer orders in and received them right away, it would not have felt so long. However, besides the length of time we were there, it was still a good experience.

    First time to Tokyo Kitchen &we will definitely be back. Our chef was a little less entertaining than others but overall everything was great. The fact the wait staff are always asking if we needed anything and offering drinks refills before we had to ask showed us they really wanted us to have a great dining experience.

    The nightmare is over! So I get to Tokyo Kitchen and am made to wait ~7 minutes to be seated. I am finally seated at an overbooked table. Teppanyaki typically seats 8 in a horseshoe and I’m the 9th. (As an aside shortly after I was seated a party of two was seated in front of their own teppanyaki grill no effort was made to move me to the clearly empty grill.) no I’m not the chef I’m the guy sitting on the very edge of the horseshoe. Things get worse while the chef was preparing my filet lobster tail combo he removed the tail from the shell and cooked it. Presentation folks it was ugly. He asked if I wanted it placed back in the shell. I said yes. He placed the minced lobster tail back in the shell with a piece that was still attached to the shell and appeared to be uncooked. To add insult to injury he INTENTIONALLY splashed melted butter onto me when placing the food on my plate, with the spatula. I think I said, dude that was uncalled for. His response, was to fling a piece of my cooked filet into the sesame ginger sauce. When I attempted to hail a manager I was ignored. When I finally got a manager’s attention the chef was told to knock it off. And my meal was discounted, at my request and hardly enough to cover the damage to my jeans. Had I been the manager I would have comped the entire meal and prayed that was enough to avoid a review like this. Could it have been a chef who had a bad day? Maybe. But the manager also having a bad day at the same time? Unlikely. If your in the mood for teppanyaki take your money elsewhere such as Benihana.

    They apparently forgot our table. They didn’t start cooking our food until 1 hour after we placed our order. Also, they rushed our food and wasn’t cooked right. Some items were burnt since they rushed for the food to cook.

    We loved Tokyo Kitchen it was a yearly birthday celebration location for us. New ownership modernized the interior, it’s beautiful, and seemed to keep some of the same employees from before which we really liked. My only issue was that even with a reservation they made us wait 20 + minutes to see if more folks would come in to complete a full table! That was non customer friendly especially since it was a weeknight and not crowded at all! The smarter thing would have been to seat us and have us purchase drinks which would have made us feel welcomed and quite frankly would have meant we would have spent more. The wait to fill the table just didn’t make me feel welcomed more like we were not the complete $$$ needed for a table. I never felt that way under the previous ownership. I write this post in the hope they adjust that process….

    The service is horrible. We had a reservation for 5:30 pm and my husband and I decided to wait at the bar, nobody was at the bar just us I checked the drinks menu when a group of 4 people arrived and the bartender started taking care of them. Then 2 people arrived and the bartender did not take our order yet. I was patiently watching when another group of people arrived so I asked the bartender to please take our order and she said she will take care all of them first. I could not believe it she was very rude too. So my husband and I went to check if our table was ready and of course was not ready it was 6:20 pm and no table yet. We asked to talked to the manager but the manager never came and didn’t care for us. What a disappointment, we left and we’ll never come back. Tokyo Kitchen is over is in the past is not the warm family owner restaurant where we enjoyed the food and the service. Now they are very disorganized late rude and the new decoration is very dark as the vibe. I gave 1 star because there’s no an option of none star.

    My entire ‘ohana (family) was very impressed with this Teppanyaki restaurant. Service was excellent and food was very tasty. We have been to many Asian/Japanese and Teppanyaki places. This by far is even better than the big chain restaurants. The restaurant was busy, yet we had no wait time. Our chef was entertaining and the food was cooked/seasoned well. Sushi is excellent too. We highly recommend Tokyo Kitchen. We dont know what it looked like before, but the recent renovations look awesome. Slightly on the higher price side, but definitely worth it.

    First off, I’m so happy this finally reopened! Our Chef Alex was friendly, funny and actually had some new tricks that I hadn’t seen before. The food was just as good as I remember, which made us very happy. Every sauce, sushi roll and entree was delicious. But the price is AT LEAST double what it was and the service was just eh. Perhaps they are still a little understaffed. The decor is great, definitely “Instagramable” and an obvious upgrade. The next time we go back it will be for lunch or a special occasion with a small group. The price is just a little too inflated compared to what it was.

    We had a 630 reservation arrived at 6pm and checked in. They were really behind due to cooks shortage which was understandable. Got seated closer to 7pm. Food was good and the atmosphere was good. I would come again for a special occasion.
