The food is always exceptional at Teikoku. The sushi is fresh. We also love the Red Dragon rolls, Poseidon rolls, pad thai, and seafood drunken. The service is excellent. Teikoku is one of our favorites restaurants!

This isn't an authentic Japanese or Thai restaurant - despite the name and foreign 'celebrity' chefs. The menu is creative and varied and the service is pretty good. I had their 'top of the house' $60 Omakase tasting menu and it was so-so. Two of the courses were too similar (sliced, raw fish with some light, chilled broth), there was no miso soup, the duck was too heavily slathered with sweet teriyaki sauce, and the sushi course was way too much food. The servers that delivered the courses often weren't familiar with what they were dropping off. It seemed disjointed and not well thought out. I appreciated the chef stopping by my table to ask me how it was - I think they don't sell many of these so he was curious about my impression. He could tell I wasn't completely satisfied and offered an apology. Overall I would return, realizing this is a fusion restaurant designed to please the American palette vs. offer authentic Asian cuisine.

We had a reservation and unfortunately were not seated until over 30 minutes after our scheduled reservation despite showing up on time. There were no apologies offered up by the staff who had employed an air of superiority to their service for the evening. Overall a disappointing trip to what used to be one of my family’s favorite restaurants in the area. Will be a long time (if ever) before we return.

the service was slow, i asked for a table in a quiet area but got the loudest area. Tables are a bit too close together in general. Table also a bit small for two people. Other than that i have been here many times and it's always been a great time. The food is amazing and at a reasonable price. You wont be disappointed.

Very disappointing. Especially for the money. No value here. Service was unacceptably slow. D2 simple bar drinks took 15-20 minutes. Waitress seemed hurried from table to table. Red Dragon roll was recommended and not very tasty and included crab (?) shells in each bite. The Teikoku roll was filled with minimal fish. Sent them both back. The Kobe Beef hot rock was decent and the seaweed salad was average. My wife’s Pad Thai was good. $156 for a pretty bad all around experience.

First time dining here and what a tremendous experience it was. Daniel was our server and he was very professional, knowledgeable and kind. His timing was on point as well. My friends and I ordered a plethora of different dishes offered on the menu that left my palate dancing all night. I was thoroughly surprised by how vast the menu was. Options for everyone and overwhelming in a good way. I will definitely be dining here again as this is my new favorite restaurant.

Teikoku is one of those restaurants where, when you drive past it, it is immediately added as a place where you need to visit. Me and my girlfriend arrived in the late afternoon where we were greeted by a beautiful sunset on arrival and a warm, and exotic ambiance walking into the restaurant. Our server was very pleasant and we were sat in a tatami room and enjoyed the red curry and seafood drunken noodles dishes. Would definitely recommend this place to others!

Teikoku had a surprising mix of success and less positive aspects.

Pros:
- Cocktails were EXCELLENT.
- Pad Thai was very good (but had no spice options? Only mild).
- Ambiance is casual and good for a group of friends or for low key business colleagues.

Cons:
- The sushi rice was prepared too far in advance and tasted a bit older (but I am picky).
- Weird delivery of our meals. Ordered Pad Thai, Chicken dish, and Sushi at same time...then 1 sushi roll (to-go) 10 minutes later and the to-go bag showed up first. Followed by the pad thai and chicken dish and then FINALLY my sushi (after we flagged down and asked the waiter where my food was).
- waiter seemed distracted

Teikoku brings typical Japanese food to life, with much healthier and organic options, while still centering it’s focus around Japanese food. The atmosphere is slightly dated, and the rest room is slightly less decent than one would expect. Overall a great restaurant for the food, and decent for the atmosphere.

Service was absolutely terrible. Waited almost an hour for our entree and waiter didn’t even check to see if we needed a refill on our drinks or water. My halibut was not even edible. Extreme fishy taste. A friend at the table also tried it and said it was disgusting. Two other people had cold entrees. My husband’s drunken noodles was the only thing hot and delicious. Also the tuna bruschetta was also very good— I wish I got that for my entree. Very disappointing visit.

Great sushi options as well as excellent variety of authentic dishes. Even when noisy still fairly easy to have a conversation, have been here as a group and on one on one dates, works for either with a good variety in seating options.

Typically eating at the bar is the way to go, but this time, the bartender was not attentive as the other bartenders. From what I understand from friends, this gentleman is always somewhat aloof when bartending. We will sit at a table next time we go to Teikoku, if this bartender is working the bar.

Shoved into dark back corner at first, then got moved immediately next to large party in other corner when there was plenty of
room in the restaurant - spoiled the whole special occasion. Some of the food was OK, other food was bland and no flavor.
Have been here before and it was much better, but will not return, not a good dining experience when there is so much
choice out there.
