We had a dinner there on Christmas day when nothing was open. The food was amazing and both our portions were huge. The service was excellent too, they checked all the details with us how we would like it done. We didn't have to wait long for the food, and it was presented wonderfully! I could highly recommend this place.

We went to the Kumo's in North Port, not Venice! The habachi cooking was fun to watch and the rice and veggies We're delicious however the chicken was tough as leather!

I just read "Hummer124's" review, and I must agree about the lipstick on the wine glass, since the same thing happened to me, and it was pretty gross. I had been wanting to try this place, since I do love the nice Hibachi Grill SHOW that they used to put on in the original Benihana's of Tokyo, among others. I... More

We long ago stopped doing the "chef show hibachi" stuff. However, we do still like that food. So we stopped in for a quiet lunch at Kumo today and we pleasantly surprised. The place is very attractive and the food is very good. Lunch prices are reasonable. So nice to get a good meal and that is also good for... More

A great place to celebrate a birthday! We had lots of fun and laughter! Noticed the most recent reviews were mixed so was not sure what to expect. Food was good however I asked for a sushi menu and never got one but my meal was enough so never asked again. Typical average Japanese Hibachi atmosphere and food. I am... More

I have to say this was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever experienced. To start with we have been going to Kumo for years, in fact I went through my credit card statements and have been there over 16 times this year alone. My wife and I went to Kumo to celebrate my brother’s birthday with his... More

We went there for dinner tonight, (2 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 preteen). The experience was festive. The chefs put on a show while they cook dinner. There is also a sushi bar to order from in case you don't want hibachi. Kind of pricey but the overall experience is worth it, especially if it is for a special occasion.

We have eaten at this Kumo's a couple of times. Seems like every time we have came in they are always understaffed and the service is slow. Food wise if you love sushi then this would be the place for you. Nobody beats the way they make them.
