    Service was great but after leaving and some thought the meal was pretty overpriced. I understand the quality of the meat and the appetizers, but for the small location I can’t justify the price. I did order quite a bit for a party of 2 and there were some great appetizers but the actual bbq itself wasn’t anything special after thinking about it. If you are up charging that much it should be a much better ambiance and there should be better parking also. I probably won’t be back again.

    Hello our guest, we always wish all our guest have a wonderful time with us. We are sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied of us.

    For the fine dining price of $500 for dinner for two, I would expect a certain level of commesurate service. Instead, the experience was just a glorified version of Korean bbq. I'm not sure why the place calls themselves yakiniku when it's clearly more Korean bbq in style. Korean was spoken by all the diners around us and the waitstaff, and the service was Korean in style too. Now, I love Korean bbq. The expedient and cut to the chase vibe of most Korean bbq places totally works in its normal casual setting. But in the context of a fine dining restaurant, it does not work at all. We ordered a multiple course menu and we wouldn't even be finished with one course when the next one or two would come out. Not only was the pace exceptionally fast, it was cringy how the food was being handled. Plates were haphazardly and callously put on the table, the beautiful A5 Wagyu meat was tossed onto the grill as nonchalantly as burgers on a picnic cookout. The servers tweezers and scissors (again Korean not yakiniku in style) were ungracefully plopped onto the table between courses. And we were given our dinner check before we had even finished our dessert. Nothing in our experience of service gave us the impression that this was an upscale restaurant. The quality of meat was amazing, but many of the courses were meh in flavor. Also, there were microgreens and flowers on plates that we later found out were just for decoration? (In fine dining, you don't ever leave anything on the plate that isn't meant to be eaten.) Also for $500, I figure the space would be designed so the diners have eye-pleasing views from all angles-- but I spent the night looking at a glowing restaurant touch screen and a service area filled with boxes, coolers, and kitchen equipment. And I couldn't even see my dining partner with the ventilation smack in between our eyeline. This restaurant is for Korean hipsters, not for those who are seeking true fine dining. It was a waste of money.

    The service was good, but the meat was really greasy bc of the abundant amount of fat :( I understand the meats were high quality and thus had such amount of fat. But I’ve been to many other restaurants serving a5 wagyu. It was my first time having a difficulty of handling the greasiness of wagyu.

    Yakiniku OsenResponded on December 16, 2021

    We understand your experience could be different what you expected and what we prepared. We always try to escalate our standards and we imported A5 Wagyu specially selected from Japan. This marbling is caused by the abundance of inter-muscular fat cells. The fat is evenly distributed throughout the muscle. This makes the meat have a pink color and soft texture with a creamy taste. :) We hope you have a visiting us again and have a satisfaction. Thank you for dinning with us and have a good day!

We went there to celebrate the birthday and the staff prepared candle on the dessert cake and flower, card and a small gift. It was a very nice experience.

    My boyfriend and I were visiting from out of town and came to the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It was one of the few places we were able to book a last-minute reservation and I’m so glad we were able to!!! Every dish was delicious and the A5 cuts were so buttery, they just melted in your mouth. They have pre-set menus and a la carte options depending on your appetite and party size. One of the best Japanese barbecue that I’ve had in a long time!! Our server Lina was also super sweet and funny! She definitely made our experience there even better! :)

    When I say that this was one of the best meals of my life, I am NOT lying. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, the staff greeted us kindly and though we were early for our reservation, they quickly arranged a beautiful table for us. Yumi was outstanding, from her sake recommendations, to the perfectly grilled wagyu steaks she prepared at the table for us. We ordered the “B” A5 wagyu tasting menu, and were astonished at the quality and amount of food that we were served. Every bite was intentional and amazing. The freshly chopped wasabi and yuzu dipping sauces were perfection, and a great complement to the buttery wagyu beef. We were celebrating a birthday, and the Yakiniku Osen staff made sure it was memorable by presenting a beautifully wrapped rose and a hand written birthday card to the birthday boy. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough - and I cannot wait to return!

    It is exactly what I was looking for. Yakiniku just like when traveling to Japan. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. I was so grateful that they even accommodated solo diners. Better yet, they accommodated me for having their Omakase for 1 person. Excellent food and all the meats just melted in your mouth. And the staff service were beyond wonderful. I will definitely come back again.

    The only words that came out of my mouth were “wow!” Over and over again. We went big and did the $360 set meal. Every dish that came out was spectacular. The presentation and the thought behind every dish was out of this world. Actual real Japanese Wagyu brought me back to 3 am eating Wagyu in Shinjuku. I closed my eyes and almost felt like I was there. I don’t drink but had the yuzu soda which was great and my partner had sake and said it was great as well. To top it all off the service was amazing and even their glassware/dishes were beautiful. It’s a very well thought out space with amazing staff. I’m from seattle and have already made a reservation to come back when I’m down next. This restaurant is amazing. Don’t pass it up!

    First, we waited for a while for the table to be ready even thought we arrived there at time. There is no complimentary drink we used to have . Second, we noted that it was a birthday event, but there was no special action from the restaurant. Very disappointed. Wont recommend
