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.

Used to be one of my favorite J-bbq spot. However their service has deteriorated so much:( Also their wagyu restaurant week menu is not reasonable, order all the items through regular order will be even less expensive than the restaurant week menu:(

I think it’s overly priced, for the restaurant week. The waiter’s attitude was not as good as previous. Won’t recommend the $125 menu unless you want to waste money.

Food and service were fantastic! The 1 1/2 hour time limit was stressful and didn't allow us to properly enjoy the meal or the A5 wagu beef. Think that when you spend over $500 on a meal this deadline is arbitrary and unfair.

We were seated 30m late without apology. There was a customer vaping in the bathroom, which was relatively dirty. The food itself was good, but not enough to compensate for the rest of the experience.

We had very nice dishes, but the service was chaotic. The table next to us was highly attended and their dishes were cooked the moment they arrived. Our wagyu sat on the table for 20 minutes before it was cooked. It was very irritating to see the table next to us be attended instantly with all dishes while we waited. The mushrooms we had were burnt as they were left so long. The waiter didn't think to check and we had to call him over to point it out. "I'll be back to flip the zucchini in 2 minutes" turned into two pieces of burnt zucchini. We ended up cooking the rest ourselves. Similarly, there were two dishes of meat we cooked ourselves. At one point, we pointed out that the waiter was ignoring us and someone else subbed in. This was great. Until it wasn't. Even this attention didn't last.

So, overall great flavors, but not great service.
