We had reservations for an early dinner and were seated right away, next to the windows overlooking the Sheraton Hotel lawn, and it was beautiful. My friend ordered misoyaki butterfish and vegetable tempura with the rice set, and I ordered the same entrees in the Kaiseki course. The food was very good, but the butterfish was a little small compared to the picture on the menu. We noticed the person on the next table had also ordered butterfish and their piece was much bigger, so we were a little disappointed. The service was very good, however, and the waitress asked if we wanted to split the ice cream dessert (it came with the Kaiseki) so that my friend and I could each have a sampling. The restaurant seemed very clean and we'll probably come back and try the teppanyaki side the next time.

This is a lovely restaurant with great service but unfortunately the food is lacking in flavor.
The Chicken Teriyaki was delicious but the other items that we ordered were disappointing.

The Shinjo shrimp were quite oily and had no crunch at all.
The Chicken Karaage had no seasoning and the flavor was too mild.
The vegetable tempura was also oily and little flavor.
The Unagi don was good but the portion size is too tiny for an adult.

We loved the friendly service, but unfortunately we did not enjoy the food.
Dinner tonight was really disappointing because we had eaten here last year and enjoyed it.

Wide variety of Japanese dishes to suit everyone's taste. Macadamia nut tofu was creative and yum. The value of the food was very reasonable. The tempura was a tad greasy. The pork katsu was a bit dry and interesting as we were expecting a pork cutlet breaded and sliced. The dish had 5 medallions of breaded pork patties. The clam soup cooked was sake was fragrant and pleasant surprise. Service was excellent and attentive.

This was our 2nd visit since 2017 and the restaurant maintain its high service standard. Teppanyika is still good and chef is helpful and interactive with customers. We enjoyed a very good time tonight with my thanks and appreciations. I would come back again during my next visit in future...

鉄板焼コースをいただきました。ロブスター+ステーキやステーキのみのコースなどいくつかのコースがありましたが、私たち夫婦ともステーキのみのコースで十分満足できる内容で、非常にコストパフォーマンスの良いお店だと思います。
鉄板コーナーゆえ油煙が出るので少し喉に違和感が出ました。
もう少し排気を強めにしたら良いのではと思います。
全体的には非常に満足。足を運ぶ価値は十分あるお店でした。

Restaurant pays attention to the minutest of details such as tea/tea cup temperature when served. Loved the Ikebono flower arrangement throughout the restaurant. Although, a "hashi oki" would have been a nice touch. Some of the plateware seemed a bit dated, but not a big deal. If English-speaking wait staff attempts to speak Japanese, please ensure they use the proper formal speech level, otherwise, best to stick with English, i.e., don't want to sound a bit rude to Japanese visitors who are used to the "polite form" from wait staff. Easy reservations with Open Table, and enough "reminders" so I wouldn't forget!
