    My family and I went for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious, but it took them 20 minutes to get our drinks. Even though it was clear that we went to celebrate a birthday, no one offered to sing happy birthday for us. We saw 3 other tables being celebrated. I got up at the end of our meal, the restaurant was almost empty. I asked a couple of servers if they could sing happy birthday, we waited at least 10 more minutes, no one came. It was very disappointing! I am still giving them 4 stars because of the food and the service from the Hibachi chef.

    Food was good. We had to wait a long time for the chef to come to our table and make our food. About 30 minutes after we received our soup and salad. Maybe they were short staffed that night.

    i was full prepared to give a 5 star but they mucked it up in the end. There is nothing like having a great dinner ruined by being rushed out the door. before we even had a chance to start enjoying our food we were offered checks and brought boxes. Then the bus boy came over and proceeded to try and take the plate i was eating off of, along with my glass of water and wine. what a waste of a good evening. i ended up so rushed out of there that i ended up having to finish my glass of wine in the lobby area. We will never return. I felt embarrassed and my daughter didn’t understand why we were being pushed out the door. This was our Mother’s day dinner and they ruined it!

    The service here was absolutely unacceptable. We drove an hour and a half to get there since we heard it was good and we needed somewhere to go for Mother’s Day. We check in and everything was fine. We finally get to our table and 20 minutes go by before we see a waiter. Parties our size that got seated after us already had their cocktails and drinks. We finally get our drinks and it was downhill from there. We waited for over 30 minutes to get our drinks refilled and couldn’t find our waiter anywhere. We received our appetizers after the chef started cooking. We called over a manager and told him about a few issues we had very calmly and he said he’d get right on it but said he was busy. He never even brought anything he said he would. We waited another while because the waiter even bothered to refill our drinks. He ended up giving everyone a refill except for me. I had to ask for the manager again because by that time we were just over the whole experience. The chef never spoke to us except for when he asked us if the order was correct. He did no special things to make it an experience. He just cooked the food. The whole reason we went there was for an experience. When the manager came back to the table he finally brought us what we were missing and fixed what was wrong and said that this was the fifth table that our waiter wasn’t looking after. I understand that people have bad days but if this was that many tables he’s messed up why not send him home early? We had to ask for any sort of compensation. Our waiter came back for the last time and asked us how the bills were going to be split and we said 4 and 2. Manager came back with the bills and it was 3 and 3. Took us over 2 hours from sitting down to paying to get out of there and honestly was a huge waste of time and money. There was nothing special about it. Tasted exactly like every hibachi place I’ve ever been to and honestly had smaller portions. Will never ever visit here again for any reason. Just awful.

    We had a very enjoyable time. Our chef was fun and did a wonderful job of making sure our meals were cooked to our liking. We will definitely go there again.
