This is a great place to eat and celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere is clean, upbeat, and artistic, the food is delicious, and many of the hibachi grill chefs create an entertaining, even humorous, experience. We will be back!

It’s my mother’s favorite for her birthday celebration. The food is always good. Today’s chef wasn’t as fancy and entertaining as others, but he had a great personality. Service is fantastic!

I eat here on a fairly regular basis and the service/food/"show" is always excellent. I have a 4 year daughter and she loves it too.

Always enjoy sitting at the bar. Quick service vs long wait. The bartenders are always nice and helpful. Thai Chili sushi roll is great; love their ginger salad.

We went for a new job celebration. My grand children loved the show and the food. As usual we ate to much. My favorite is the shrimp. Good sushi as well.

The waitress was pleasant and efficient, kept drinks filled and dishes cleared. The cook/chef was pleasant but could have been flashier and entertaining. The lighting is really poor and the menu difficult to see
