    Service was great. Food was very bland. For paying as much as we did wasn’t satisfied with our food and the taste. Needs more flavor!

    For it being the middle of the week we were shocked that things went as wrong as they did. We didn’t get our salads. Our drinks took a REALLY long time to come out, we were basically done with our meal by the time our drinks came out. And our waiter couldn’t figure out splitting our check. I would understand these things on a weekend. But it was a Tuesday. Not impressed with the service. Our chef and food were wonderful so I guess that’s a plus.

    The chefs performance needed some work. The rice was under cooked. The chicken needed more flavor. The waitress was very nice and checked in often. Also they removed empty bowls and plates quickly leaving the tables clean and uncluttered.

    It was a little annoying that my spicy chicken was made that way by buffalo sauce. I would have expected something different from a Japanese restaurant.

    Waitress was awesome great service food was really good the only thing I don’t like is you charged 18% gratuity and in California tip is voluntary not mandatory only if you’re party is over 8 people. But my waitress was great and I left extra money. But that’s illegal.

    The service and food were great. haven't been there for awhile and was surprised at the prices. They are almost doubled. Teppanyaki meals are now $42.-$48+. Used to be in the high $20's. It was packed for Mother's Day but the service was still excellent. Make sure to check if your check has already taken a tip. My husband didn't notice the 18% tip taken and tipped them even more.

    Mother’s Day celebrated with my wife and daughter. The food was delicious and the family that shared or table is now our friends. The chef was entertaining and comical to say the least. The wife wasn’t disappointed, it was a great day.

    Upon sitting down we were told to scan the table for the menu vs a menu or special menu. Upon ordering our table was told only combination plates are being served due to the holiday, which was OK with my husband and me. Our bill came and it was over $260 for 2 adults and 2 toddlers. 1 glass of wine for alcohol consumption. I had steak and shrimp and my husband had steak and scallops the twin toddlers had children's chicken with white rice. This was a switch and bait move, the prices were doubled but never announced, visual or told to you until you get the bill and still not told just you had to notice it. I can afford this but do feel this is not a good experience or legal practice. 20% gratuity was added for a small party as well. However, the icing on the cake was the dust vent along the back wall dropping dust on myself and guests sitting next to me landing on our plates, table and drifting to the grill.

    The place is very nice and clean. But the quality of food compared to the price they asked for is too much. The food is overpriced. Customer service is okay.

    People were ok. The lady at the desk was on the ball but then it all went down hill from there. The food was awful and probably sitting around for a while and the sauce was just an afterthought. The table and floor was sticky and when we got the bill there was already an 18% tip on it. Not only that there was a suggested add on tip. I am not the type of person to not give tips or even a bit more when it was deserved but this was just too much for food that cost way to much. There were enough people there just standing around and on their phones rather than going around to the tables. Just an all around bad experience for a place like that.

    Made reservations for Valentine's Day; never did my reservation advertise that it would be a fixed menu. Got to the restaurant, fixed menu starting at $69.95 for chicken, $79.95 for steak per person (prices doubled). Came with appetizers that I did not like, however, you could order any appetizer for an additional cost. I couldn't even sit on the side of the teppan table that was less crowded! Excuse from the host was we need to fit more people on the table because it's Valentine's Day. Sat at the table for more than 20 mins, no one else showed up. It took that long for the waiter to ask if we wanted anything to drink. Terrible! We left and went elsewhere.

    We always request Alex and he cooked the food to perfection! Great environment, great vibes and great food. We definitely enjoyed coming here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. It was also his best friend's first time and he cleaned his plate until it was squeaky clean. It was amazing, drinks were made great also.
