A last minute decision to pop in and dine. Hostess was friendly and welcoming even not having any reservation and being later in the evening. Staff was efficient with order. Food was very good. Had spicy tuna roll, and a few others that unfortunately cannot remember (sorry All!) Never had a bad experience with the food and always go back.... More

The chef cooks right at your table if you get the hibachi table, fresh meat and seafood. Definitely recommended

My husband and I have dinned here over the last few years occasionally. It has been mostly a good experience, but last year it was not and unfortunately this time, a year later proved to be just as bad, for different reasons. We came with another couple to celebrate a birthday with them. We had reservations and were seated for... More

We took our son here for his birthday and we had a great time. The food was great and so was the service. It was expensive but the portions were big and the food was delicious. Our chef was very nice and very entertaining. We will be back for my birthday!

My family has always gone here for special occasions dating back to when it used to be at the Quay. Prices are good for the amount of food, service, and experience you receive.if your looking for a cheap new this isn't your place. This is meant to be for a splurge and special meal.

*** Stars are low because of price. I would have gave them 4 stars for food and chef... Food was good and a lot of left overs for me. They make you assume your rice is included in the meal, but if you agree to the fried rice it's a $5 up-charge which they don't tell you about until you... More

Our family sat around a grill with two other families while the chef prepared the food in front of our eyes. For the other two families it was their second time visiting in one week which speaks to the quality of the food and service. We had a variety of combos,shrimp/chicken,scallops/steak,lobster/steak,etc. It was all wonderful and perfectly cooked to each... More

Had a great experience in this elegantly modern hibachi style restaurant. Had several different types of sushi that all did the trick. It was worth every dime!
