The absolute slowest place ever. Honestly waited over an hour for our food - and we were the ONLY people in the restaurant. They do know that sushi is mostly uncooked fish, right?

If I had to review this place solely based on the Hibachi experience I'd probably have given it at least three stars. The Hibachi grill was pretty standard. The food was OK, not great, and the chef did a nice job with the grill entertainment....More

Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse is a Japanese restaurant in Highland Heights, OH, with locations across the state. So what makes us different from other Hibachi-styled restaurants? We are a casual dining, family restaurant. Our chefs not only cook the freshest food in front of you, but they're also certain to entertain you while cooking your hibachi-style Japanese dinner in front of your very eyes. We can accommodate for any party size and for all events. We know how to make even the most ordinary days special and offer a uniquely authentic ambiance unlike any other. Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse began in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1988. Within ten years, we became a restaurant hot spot for friends and families alike. After our success in Erie, we expanded to the northeastern Ohio region, starting in Fairview Park. Currently, we have a total of five local restaurants, with our most recent opened in Independence, Ohio. With a long list of very happy customers, we invite you to come take part in the dining/entertainment experience that makes for the perfect lunch or dinner, any day of the week! Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse: Great Food. Great Show. Great Time!
