The food was meh...
My chef clearly wanted to be 700 different places than where he was.
I was hoping to be sat at a table with other people like every other teppanyaki places I've been to. I was seated by myself and sat by myself the whole time.
And I went home and promptly pooped my guts out because they prepared hollandaise sauce or something and it did not agree with my system at all. So, $125 down the toilet, literally.
The beer was cold and delicious though.

very disappointed in the meal prep and service considering how expensive it is. Defiantly pick Benihana's over this place.

Great teppan style grilled options (think Benihana but better in my opinion). Assuming no dietary restrictions, get the egg sauce! Always great service. The Crown Entrees come with Soup, Salad, 2 shrimp, entree w/vegetables and dessert. Always too much food but makes GREAT leftovers.

We ate here about 10 years ago and it was amazing. This time was a different experience! The chef couldn’t read the waiters handwriting and overlooked our Filets. 👎👎 The beef fried rice that you had to pay extra for was disgusting!! We also smelled someone smoking weed in the restaurant somewhere and it made sick and I couldn’t eat. For a family of 4 it cost us $300 and we walked away asking ourselves why!! We won’t make that mistake again. Bye bye Ron of Japan. I do not recommend!

This is one of the best meals that you will ever have. I’ve been going here since I was a child and I brought my girlfriend for the first time. Crown dinner with an extra side of the kogani-yaki is a must! Wow!

Our steak was well done when we ordered medium rare. Waitress asked how it was and we told her. She apologized and asked again later. My reply and hers were the same. The restaurant should have done better than a weak apology.

Worst meal ever. Too much oil. Too much food with no ala cart options. Too many children running around way over priced. Go to BeniHana if you want Tapanaki. How does this place stay open. Oh yeah and the bathroom was flooded and disgusting

The restaurant was once great. It is in need of renovation. The air handlers are horrible and you leave coated with oil from the smoke. There are many better choices to get your fix of egg yolk sauce.

We much prefer the Northbrook location. Valet parking is expensive downtown!
Restaurant is much smaller. Chef cooked vegetables last which we found odd.

Very good food. Not 'over buttered' as in some hibachi style restaurants. Not one thing was bad. Loved the vegetables. However, my sons like noodles vs rice and I didn't check the menu before making reservation.

Had to sit with two recently graduated high schoolers, pleasant enough....but being served beer.

We had sushi for dinner and it was mediocre. Not worth the price of $15/roll. Staff was friendly and attentive. Simply based on what we ate I’d say it’s not worth the value and thus wouldn’t recommend.

Food was pretty bland, lacked flavor. Pretty smoky, I left the restaurant smelling like a smokehouse. Food could be better especially for the price. I wasn’t happy about my experience.

My wife and I have been going to Ron of Japan for over 40 years. We now live in the far western suburbs and do not get into the city too often, but a recent visit to a Northwestern Hospital provided us with the perfect opportunity.
The meal was exactly how we remembered - absolutely amazing!!!
My wife had the lobster tail and I had the filet mignon. They both just melted in our mouths. One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. We will definitely make an effort to go again.
Thanks Ron of Japan for maintaining your standards over all these years.
