    Not your typical hibachi joint. Great service from drinks through dinner. Food was outstanding. They put a custard-like topping on hibachi shrimp (and lobster) that is delicious. Portions are huge. Got the ribeye cooked medium rare, and it was a delight. A bit pricey overall, but would definitely return.

    I will never ever attend Ron of Japan again it’s not worth the time or money, it’s a lot of fluff. Food is not for filling. The food was awful. The beef fried rice was a tragedy and over priced. I have true regrets taking my husband there. Spending all that money for nothing. Ron of Japan is full of smoke and egg sauce. I felt like I had been stuck up without a gun leaving there. It’s a NO for me …………………………….

    Had reservations and took 20 mins to be seated, once seated we had to wait 2 hours before our food was even started but our waiter Glen was amazing he constantly checked in on us and made sure we had what we needed. It was my birthday dinner and I had a terrible experience 😒

    The cooking table was not working properly so after cooking our lobsters and teppan veggies, the cook had to go to another table to finish cooking the fried rice, steaks and chicken. This delay was about 45 minutes so by the time that part of dinner was cooked, our lobster and veggies were cold. So very disappointed. The ROJ experience was ruined. They did give us 2 drinks and an appetizer on the house. Between valet, pre dinner drinks and dinner we spent over $300 for two people for a terrible experience. I believe ROJ should have comped the entire meal.

    It had been a long time since we ate at Ron of Japan. We found ourseleves in the hotel directly across the street. So, why not. Glad we did. I forgot the group seating but the four others at our table were great folks. It's fun: the fire, the sharp knives, food prep right in front of you. The food is very good, especially the shrimp. Everyone should experience it and if it's been a long time ago it;s well worth going back.

    Overall it was great food. The only thing I was upset about was that I indicated on reservation that it was my husband’s birthday and I even reminded the girl who sat us, but no one came out to sing to him as they do every year. Because we are so used to this every time we come for our birthdays, it felt like the service was lacking a bit.

    I have been coming here for over 30 years. The cooks, servers, hostess, and bartender as always gave great service. The food was delicious. We always get shogun and shrimp appetizer. This place has been a family favorite for years. Defiantly recommend. I wish I could give it more than five stars.

    We live out of state and had been there once before on a visit to Chicago. My daughter wanted to go back for her birthday. We had a wonderful time. Even better than the time before. The food and service were amazing. Would recommend Ron’s of Japan to anyone. It is an experience to remember.

    We waited over 35 minutes to get our table. The food lacked seasoning and the overall experience was just a disappointment. The steak had no flavor and the shrimps were raw. This was our first time and frankly I believe our last.

    Food was great and cooked wonderfully. Chef seems to be in a bad mood. Was not communicative at all. it seemed as if it was a hassle to ask him to make the food or to ask him any questions about the food itself. We’ve had hibachi plenty of times, and usually they are interactive and fun, but this time around he’s just seemed as if he wanted to finish and leave which made our experience subpar at best. I don’t think I would return just for this reason alone.

    Horrible! I've never been so rushed through a dinner. I've been there 18 of the last 20 New Years Eve's! From the moment we walked in (6PM seating) and felt like we were in the stone faced hostess and coat check girls way, to the rushed dinner to the time we left with out even a thank you from the coat check girl who just threw my tip into the tip jar without so much of a nod or, God forbid, a verbal thank you. Chef's used to be fun and engaging, ours was a robot. I'm writing a formal complain letter directly to the GM of this place. If I don't receive an apology, my tradition of New Years Eve at Ron of Japan is OVER ! ... And I'm not even a complainer type person.. That's how bad it was! So disappointing! Still recommending this restaurant, but need to see improvement for next year.

    Not what I remembered. While Nothbrook location was always the better of the two, this Chicago location was a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. Food just average. Different recipe for special egg sauce, heavier, not as delicious. Chef was not very happy, no showmanship, no show at all. Too expensive. 18% tip was included in bill, as if taken for granted that a tip was deserved. In Japan, the people do not accept a tip, it is almost an insult since they expect to provide the best service they can. I tip well when deserved and I like the option to choose. Very disappointed with food and unhappy chef with no showmanship. Will never go to Ron of Japan again.

    Our family loves Ron of Japan but this visit was disappointing. Orders were wildly incorrect, portions smaller than usual, and prices have gone up. To top it off, the Mai Tai was weak and when I asked for them to add a little rum, I was told “it’s pre-made so if you want to taste the rum, you need to order a super”. For the cost of that drink, I shouldn’t have to spend more to taste the rum. This place has been a mainstay in our dining rotation but we will have to reconsider if we continue to eat here.

    My husband has been coming here for over 46 years for his birthday. It’s his favorite restaurant and for good reason. Wonderful food, top notch servers, great drinks it’s a win/win. We love Ron of Japan-hands down best Japanese teppanyaki we’ve ever had.
