This restaurant had a good feel and large menu but the rolls where just not good. My friends had the tempura calamari and they really liked it but most of us wanted good sushi and Japanese rolls and were let down. The salad with ginger dressing was good though. We won't return.

Another in the line of teppanyaki - hibachi restaurants with a sushi bar, but on a big scale. Lots of room...and a sizeable bar. Lunch was good, staff friendly and prompt, everything was nice. My sushi was tasty, no complaints!

We like to eat here, because the grandkids like to watch the chefs do their magic on the grill. Seating is in a horseshoe-shaped arrangement, with the grill in the middle. You can place your order for fresh ingredients to grill, or appetizers to enjoy before the "show" begins. They offer a full bar, with lots of beers and libations.... More

We had a great time and super food at Izakaya! Everything we ordered was so fresh and beautiful. There were six of us and the staff took great care of us! We will certainly return!

Came here with kids while staying at nearby hotel. Great option for kids where they are something other than the usual fries and etc. The hibachi show was not the best I've seen, but the food was good, especially the shrimp.

This place has some great vegan sushi options. I had cucumber, avocado and sweet potato rolls along with edamame and tempura vegetables. Amazing!

This Japanese restaurant is pretty average in food quality and services. However, the atmosphere is pretty good. I went in there a few times when they have live entertainment and people living live drums (granted the drums were great in the beginning, it got really loud and annoying after a while especially when we were eating). This restaurant also overpriced... More

We have always had good experiences at Izakaya, but our during our last visit, the service was a little lackluster. Our server was apparently also assigned to a party in one of the private rooms, which meant she wasn't available to fill our drinks, bring our appetizers, or remember that 2 of our guests wanted steamed rice.
