    The food is excellent, the chefs do a great job, and the portions are good-sized! The service is a bit varied, depending on who you get served by. As is true everywhere right now, they are understaffed. The acoustics are on the loud side, and the room itself (hibachi) is loud and harsh, which is fine if you are having a birthday party, but bad if you are trying to have a conversation or are on a date.

    The ambiance sets the mood for the awesome food. Huge selection on menu for rolls, combination plates, appetizers. Full service huge bar. We had the scorpion bowl. Yum yum! All of this in the dining area. Then, in addition they have a full hibachi. All so reasonably priced. Servers are knowledgable and happy to help and advise. Cannot wait to go back

    My husband and I came here for dinner after checking into a nearby hotel after driving for hours. We walked about 10-15 minutes to get to it so that was very convenient. The food was excellent but somewhat pricey. But then again anywhere you go these days prices are extreme so I guess we all need to get used to that. I wasn’t happy with the fact that water was not refilled on a regular basis and I ran out of my one glass of water and had to drink my husband’s. Other than that, the service was good and the ambiance was very pleasant. Recommend coming here.

    Four us went to the hibachi - place was really busy but still plenty of spacing between folks so you weren't on top of each other. Food was really good and well prepared. Plan to go back again!

    This was our second time at Kon and again it did not disappoint! We got in early and went to the bar to grab a drink and were seated immediately after. We did not feel crowded even for New Years eve, the chef was excellent and very quick to the table and the food was amazing. We 100% recommend them to anyone!

    Habachi chef was very hurried and messy , when you go to a place like this you go for food and entertainment , he put way to much soy on stuff making it to salty , he stained my daughters and my dil shirts with sauce while applying it to meat on the grill and portions were small! We will not be back for special occasions again !

    In my notes to reserve our table I requested the mascot for my kids bday. We got the bill and nothing came over. I even got up to ask the front hosts that my original plans were not met. I asked for a cake. Nothing. The waitress was then told before we got up to leave that it was my son's bday by somebody else in our party. It made it look like I did nothing to surprise my son when I did try two times. It was a dissapointing moment. We frequent this restaurant often. I will never go back. I felt ignored on purpose. Every table around us got the mascot and their cake. I just don't understand why my request was ignore twice!

    The woman at the front hostess stand set the tone for a very mediocre first time experience. The food was good, but our server disappeared frequently. making it very hard to even get a soy sauce for our sushi. They charged extra to substitute tofu for a shrimp dish which was astonishing to me as tofu and shrimp are not quite the same monetary amount. Even after leaving the restaurant, I still do not believe we were credited with our OpenTable points because she was so snippy.
