Food was fantastic and well worth the price! We had an excellent time for my sister’s birthday dinner with the pre-fixe menu (8 people, $125 per person for 2 hours).

Food tasted average. $200 treasure box only had few pieces of meet. Way overpriced! And server was in such rush. Didn’t enjoy it. Will not come back.

We were here for the thanksgiving special which has 8 nice course. The service was a mess, if not a disaster: They offered us a 75 minute window to finish the meal, but the first 15 minutes after us sat down was blank, no greeting or menu or even water; Only two tongs for us four to grill. When the dessert was served, we found out one soup was still missing. The server offered the option to take out the soup or enjoy it at the bar since the next party for our table was already waiting. We don’t like either of the options and didn’t have the soup but still paid the full price.

Birthday dinner! Amazing meal, high quality of Wagyu and just overall delicious. Service was a bit slower than usual… my 6th time being here… probably due to shortage of staff. However definitely worth visiting!

Our thick cut beef tongue order came out and the server said ‘someone will come to grill this for you’ so we waited but we waited for a good 15 minutes until the person came. I said to him that it took so long for someone to come and he just gave me a look with no proper explanation. Maybe he was busy, that’s fine. But he was also so busy accommodating another table across from us that our food was burnt a few times, he just scraped the burnt parts with the tong and we also flipped our meat twice on our own because we were scared it will catch on fire.

The plates were really dirty - not once but four times. We asked for a plate change and the servers never apologized for the dirty plates. On my last bowl i asked for to have a bite of the cold noodles, the exchanged bowl was also still dirty but by then i just wanted to get out of the restaurant that i didn’t bother asking for another clean bowl (if they even have one).

I had good memories of the restaurant few years ago when i visited nyc that’s why i came back this time when i’m back at the city again but it’s super disappointing. Not worth a single penny.

service was really slow and the food was extremely overpriced. $48 for 3 pieces of sushi and $78 for a bowl of rice with two slices of wagyu + a scoop of uni. The place seemed short staffed and the wait took forever even though there’s not much preparation for raw meat on a plate. Spent over $500 and they didn’t even put the dry ice in the treasure box. The dragon kalbi was so fatty we had to spit out half of it. The garlic rice was drowning in a puddle of oil. So disappointed :(

Great food and service!

The one hostess did nothing greet me, and greeted 3 other parties who had come after me; it did not feel good to be ignored, but maybe she was having a bad day. Thankfully a second hostess was very helpful and seated me after.

Servers did not allow us to order more food of a party of 5 people - we ate under 2 hours and was rushed out with Bill on table not asked for and told we had to vacate the table. disappointing as this was not said at beginning of our meal there was a time allotted to each table. Would not recommend for a good dining experience

It was another amazing dinner. We enjoyed their Wagyu and other summer specials. My Japanese friend who dine with me thought their wagyu is as good or even better as in Japan.
All staff were very attentive. We will go back definitely.

Service is impeccable. The Wagyu meat does not have the same quality I experienced in Japan. It was not blowing-mind kind of delicious. I went to this restaurant specifically for Wagyu, therefore I was a bit disappointed. It serves kimchi, stone rice etc in its set menu. For me those things are not interesting for a good quality Japanese restaurant. It can offer some more traditional Japanese fare.

(i’m a Japanese customer who have visited this restaurant for many times within the past 4-5 years) This Futago used to be a good Japanese BBQ restaurant until they drastically increased pricing and decreased food quality over the past year - after covid. Understand the dificulties they are facing but this drastic change on pricing as well as food quality is not totally acceptable, which apparently is the reason why they have much less customers these days. Very disappointed how they've changed recently.
