Usually hibachi food is in the range of mediocre towards tasteless, but here it was actually pretty good. Additionally, the chef was nice and entertaining to kids, and the food he prepared actually tested good.

We always get our sushi from here. This time we tried the Hibachi. The food was as to be expected, however I'll never order the lobster tail again. The lobster tail is served in the lobster tail shell that sits on the cooking surface as the chef prepares the food. However, the shell still has raw lobster attached and does not cook through as it sits. I did not say anything, but I think that is is not okay to serve your delicious, expensive cooked lobster in a raw lobster shell! Extremely disappointed in this.

Bar staff was nice! Drinks good. Our table was 20 min after the reservation. But that was expected with the holiday. Our chef wasn’t like the rest. Nothing entertaining. Just cooked and left. Flavor was great! Our server made a comment to the couple at the end of our table about another table using a gift card so he would have to up charge them for other stuff and probably wouldn’t get a good tip. Thought that was extremely tacky to overhear. Overall fun nye dinner but for the price pretty much equal to cheaper hibachi restaurants.

Birthday. It was great. Best hibachi in our area and arguably one of the best we have ever been to. Highly recommended Shinto. We will definitely go back.

Made reservation ahead, arrived on time, 5-10 minutes earlier and had to wait about 35 minutes to get seated.
Server forgot to ask what the occasion was to go there. (It was a birthday). He also forgot about appetizers. We were in middle of the main course when he came around and we told him that we didn't get the appetizers. His response: you still want It? One of us got the food wrong, we told him that and got discount for that order. We did hibachi. Chef was good. He did ask what brought us there. He was funny. But good was missing taste. Didn't use any seasoning and my chicken was chewy texture this was my second time there. I had great memories about the first visit. Not so much this time. Not sure if I will go back or just go to other places.

The shrimp was burned and they added egg yolk which was not requested. Chase was our server, and he was attentive until we pointed out the problems with the meal. He said he would talk to the manager. He cane back and said it had been removed, but they only took off $3.50. Then I asked for the manager. The first thing he did was look at the plate and start counting the shrimp?!?! Then he said he wanted to see how much of the meal was consumed, even though it was obvious that over 90% of the meal remained in the plate. Overall bad experience and we have dined here dozens of times. Never again.

Saturday 6:30pm reservations, arrived early seated immediately. Friendly front staff. Great food & value, outstanding service. Must try their special featured sushi rolls. Our waiter Joe was most attentive. Another enjoyable dining experience.

As usual the food was tasty but this restaurant is slipping . We went their for my grandson's birthday to enjoy the food and usual cooking show for hibachi style but were let down. The food was good but the cook did not do anything special like toss the shrimp or other such things. And when he moved to another table to cook he did. So the whole family was disappointed...no fun. Also the wait staff was very attentive to a fault. It was like they were trying to push us out of the place. some of us were not finished eating and she was bring take home boxes and the bill. Won't go there for a long while . Would expect the usual fun for the high prices but we did not have it. Also note that this restaurant did not credit the points for open table to my account. Be aware of these oversights if you book with open table.

I went to shinto tonight and was disappointed. The presentation was very lackluster and the rice in the special rolls were so mushy. Even if it’s half off special rolls on Monday, it’s not worth it because it’s very low quality.

Everything was fabulous other than the couple who were making out and touching other inappropriately at the table. We had young children with us and there actions weren’t appropriate.

I have celiac disease and asked for gluten free. I appreciate that I can ask for that accommodation. The gluten free substitute was amazing. The rest of our party and I had a great time. The food and service ate always excellent. We will be returning again soon.
