We stumbled on this very nice Hibachi bar restaurant quite unexpected. This place is an excellent value and a show with the food. Very modern and contemporary, it is a great change of pace.

We were looking for something different to eat and saw this restaurant was close to our hotel. We were first thinking about sushi or teriyaki, but did the hibachi dinner instead. It was very good - show and food as good as Benihana, had noodles...More

We went on a Saturday night during Labor Day weekend. We had reservations and were re-seated three times. Eventually....... the drink order was taken. Then, the soup and salad arrived and went. No one had come to start the 'meat and vegetable' preparation. I could...More

The large restaurant is rather amazing for a city the size of Ithaca. It has several public dining areas and several more private hibachi rooms. The food has always been good, the menu selection is extensive, and the service has been attentive and efficient. I...More
