Made a reservation which was available and was turned away as they said reservations weren’t valid due to sweetest day . Completely unacceptable . Who ever the manager is should’ve taken all reservations off open table to avoid this problem instead just allowed reservations to be made and then didn’t honor once we arrived .

Tried for the first time - found it to be older place, appeared very tired. Not a high end Hibachi place. No hostess at welcome, seems most is take out.

Decided on this location for a birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food and the fun the cook had while cooking the food in front of all of us. Its too bad that COVID regulations take away from it some though. Service otherwise was not all that great. Waited basically until end of dinner to receive any type of refills. Bill had a few extras on it but that was fixed. I really shouldn't have to question if the server billed us correctly.

Either way overall was pleased with the dinner and look forward to returning.

The food was great! The chef was friendly and talented. The server was mediocre. We had a group of 6 people and we were seated at the hibachi table with 2 other diners. There was no social distancing between the 2 groups. We requested another table and they did move us. I was really surprised that during this pandemic they didn’t understand why we were not willing to sit with strangers.

Cleanliness was awful. I feel really bad because it used to be a place I went to a lot, but now it's super run down and gross. Crumbs of food were all over the hibachi grille before the chef came out, not acceptable. There was also exposed wires hanging over the bar. Floor was completely filthy, and it looks likes no one has cleaned them or the windows in the past couple of years. Unfortunate turn for a former favorite restaurant.

We had appetizers. Then the chef presented the beautiful show of cutting and slicing the meat and the vegtables. The soup and salad and green tea where also excellent.

The service was terrible. We made a 9pm reservation we got seated at 9:25. They were just calling random people not going by check in or reservations. Once seated The waitress didnt come take our drink orders til 10:05. The cook came at 10:47. Thank god we didn't have other plans. We didnt leave til a quarter til 12 smh. No apology for the disorganization, Watered down drinks or poor service. We've been here before and the service was much better. Thank God the food was good. Not sure if we will return.

The waiter was not attentive, left drinks empty for more then 20 minutes until we got up & asked for a refill ourselves and the chef over cooked all the food. Got egg shells in the rice. Asked for medium filet and got well done. Cooked the shrimp too long and my husbands lobster was dry.

We took our children here for the experience and food; and they did not disappoint...the kids LOVED everything from the cooking ‘show’ to the food! Also, both of our children have seafood allergies and they made arrangements to ensure this was addressed. We will definitely return, everything was great!

We attempted to eat here for my daughters birthday. Even with having a reservation, we waited 10 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited another 15 without being greeted by waitstaff. We were surrounded by other tables of people waiting to be greeted, as well. They seemed terribly understaffed. We ended up leaving.

My husband and I ended leaving and not even eating here. We visited Wasabi earlier this year with a group of about 7 or 8 people. This was in the winter on a week night and it was fairly busy. We enjoyed our chef and the food was pretty good. This past Sunday my husband and I wanted hibachi and decided we would go to Wasabi. On the way I made a reservation thinking that on a Sunday afternoon/early evening the place would be busy. Not at all. There were a few parties in the dining room and then one full hibachi table. The hostess seemed a bit annoyed that we wanted to sit at the grill because it seemed that a new table/grill would need to be started because the one grill was full. She sat us at a grill that was not clean, it looked gritty and grimy and we were pretty grossed out. So with that we left because we could not get past the rude hostess/waitress and the dirty grill that she sat us at.

Understaffed tonight. Chef was entertaining. Dinner took 2 hours. Food that was cooked in back, due to allergies, came out way before the hibachi chef even started cooking, so we didn't eat together.

Managed very poorly and service seems to always be a problem. Servers are yelling for each other across the dining area. As people left, the plates were just left at the tables and never cleaned up. I gave them another chance but will not go back.

It’s very clearing by not sitting at hibachi table you will receive poor service and attention. It’s happened twice in a month for us.

We really wanted to enjoy our experience here. Unfortunately, the service was indifferent at best, the food was not all that great, and the floor was sticky. There are better hibachi experiences in the area.
