Went to Plum Garden for the first time after hearing it was great. We have been to several hibachi style Japanese restaurants and this by far was the worst! Had to wait 20 after reservations were made, food came fast but room temperature. Portions were small for price that is large. Very skimpy on vegetables. Very dry and tasteless. Rice... More

We have been here a number of times in the past but it's kind of far from our house so we haven't been in a while. My wife really wanted to go there for her birthday. I wish we hadn't. The food was not very good and neither was the show. The soup was overly salty, the salad was watery... More

I've had the good fortune of enjoying pretty upscale hibachi in my time, and so Plum Garden had a fairly high bar to reach. While it didn't quite pull it off, I'm never one to turn down an entertaining, while cooked Japanese meal. The place could use some updating and our serving staff made several (small) errors, but the food... More

Return visit after several years. Disappointed. Hibachi guy left out a lot of tricks and the saki. Fried rice was still mostly white and only had eggs in it. No veggies or onion or peas. Bar tender made incorrect drink. (But at least he fixed it). Waitress was very slow, forgot a drink, took forever to bring menu and me... More

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We came for a family celebration, our hibachi chef Ted was fantastic! When we come again, we'll make sure that he's there. Food and service was fantastic. Between the 8 of us we all had something different and we each enjoyed our meals. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

My grandson absolutely loves this place, and so do his parents and grandparents. The food is freshly prepared right in front of you and the chef puts on an amazing culinary display as he cooks it right before your eyes. My grandson loves the onion volcano!

One star short. The food was on point! Fantastic. My husband and I went on a little lunch date. He ordered the steak lunch platter. Of course I sampled. The steak was seriously one of the best I ever had. So much flavor and perfectly cooked. I had the salmon combination plate. Again, the flavor was out of this world.... More

Stopped for a very late lunch with friends based on previous visits and a desire for Japanese food. Although the beer was cold and the cosmos were refreshing, the entrees left something to be desired. The pork don was slightly greasy, served on lumpy rice and with very few onions. The remaining entrees were adequate, but somehow lacked the special... More

My only suggestion really would be for an explanation of menu items. They have so many combos but you can't really tell what's included unless you ask. It's great food at a great price!

Not sure what happened to this place. It used to be good food and service. Place was slow and food order came wrong and were not willing to make right.
