We went to Yakiniku Futago for our toddler's birthday following a successful visit to a similar restaurant in Japan which he really enjoyed. The staff were very accomodating to us adults and our son and he really enjoyed watching us cook our food at our table. The food is simple, but the appetizers, variety of meats and the garlic rice (which I probably could have eaten another bowl of just by myself!) were delicious.

Excellent food with knowledgeable and friendly servers. Has vegetarians or people who don’t eat beef. My new favorite yakiniku spot in NYC. Expect $100+ per person for food.

I love the special cuts of Japanese beef here and have been many times. Recently I have felt like they wanted us in and out in under an hour for a $350 meal for 3. The waitress offered us dessert when we were far from done with our mains. And while we were still eating our mains, she just brought us our check without us asking. Not sure if I will go back at this point. If you are just looking for to dine quickly, then this is the place for you. But if you are looking to savor your expensive meats and relax, then I don't recommend Futago anymore.

Made reservation well in advance, but me and my girlfriend were initially put in a loud private room (no clue why) with no ambience next to a loud table with a rambunctious kid. However, they were able to move us to the main room right away. Our waiter was nice enough, however food came out fairly slow with long waits between dishes, and we had to remind them a few times for our next dish. Restaurant was not particularly busy so surprised for the wait. Kitchen looked confused too. I'm giving 4 stars for the food since it was delicious. However I've had Japanese BBQ before that's just as good but cheaper and faster.

Food was Very good. But getting banged out by our server who told us we should order more and then it turns out we ordered way too much food left a bad tasted in my mouth. Definitely not a place to be a regular it’s good for a one off but with so many Asian bbq places in NYC that are more or less the same sans the decor and clientele I’d choose other options than a $500 dinner for two (that’s including tip, oh and we had no alcohol)

To be honest, food was great and deserve the price. Service was really poor as the staff do not care guests since they may think we are not as important as their VIP guests who were presenting in the restaurant as same time with us. More importantly, the timing about they serving each dish was bad. At some point, we have to sat there for 10 mins just for waiting the next dish. At the end, when we were paying the bill, waitress really embarrassed us that she may doesn’t know the way we paying tips in Canada is different than what they do here, she was like “ oh I can’t bring the machine to you but you have to give the card to me”, it’s understandable that each restaurant has their own way, but the way she talked to me really disrespectful.
So overall, I’d be honest about their really great food. But hated the service.

A fine yakiniku is at its details, our server was new and she wasn’t trained well about the concept or the menu and her attitude towards the complaints were awful.

Lighting is horrible I mean you need your phones to see if you manage to cook your meet.

And while they wanna assist they treat you sometimes as if we don’t know nothing about wagyu

I didn’t like to be pushed around
Yazawa better

At the end the manager tried to settle things which I truly appreciate I didn’t break their morale more since I have restaurant background.
