We made reservations for a Sunday night, showed up on time and then were told it would be a twenty minute wait. My husband went to the bar to get drinks and it took at least 10 minutes to get a beer....noone else was at the bar waiting. Bartender and waitress the same person.....same waitress I think for the whole... More

Ginzas experience tops most of the other cook-in-front-of-the-group style Japanese restaurants that I've been to. Portions are awesome, as is the quality of the food. Can't wait to return!

I recommend Ginza for party groups and private room dining, it has a good atmosphere for that. It;s not the best sushi or hibachi in town, but it's good and prices match other locations.

First off the food is very good....if you can get past the gloomy interior of the restaurant and the filth. We had two dirty plates on our table of two. We checked out the bath rooms and they both smelled horrid.

This was quite the thrill, It had the sitting arrangements around the grill, the hostess got our order and the place was well lit and clean. The chef was really nice and did some fancy tricks with eggs and the flames that pit my occupied mind at rest. The food was deciduous and worth the wait. My only sad experience... More

We were excited to try Ginza but sorely disappointed. The place is dirty, understaffed and smoky. Admittedly the food was fine but we all left feeling feeling rather stressed from having to fight to get service and like we needed a shower. Finally they have a coupon online which is great but they won't honor it unless it's printed. One... More

I made reservations for 7pm on a Saturday night. We arrived only to see that we would have a 1/2 hour wait. I had a group of 7 girls, we went to the bar and waited for about 15 minutes before we asked the host if there was a bartender. She said there was no bartender tonight, very disappointing! but...

Went to visit my son on Thanksgiving day. Most of the restaurants near my son's place were closed and only managed to find this one opened. This restaurant is located in a corner of a strip mall. On entering it looks dark and uninviting. The menu the server gave us was for teppanyaki style. so we ordered a combo steak... More

I can't review the food or service. But my husband and I walked in at 6pm on a Saturday night and there wasn't a soul sitting at the bar. That's very odd because all of the great restaurants usually have a packed bar at that time. Also, I don't know if there was some kind of accidental fire, but the... More

Food is always excellent and fun either in a group at the hibachi grills or in a more intimate private setting in their tea rooms. Love their over the top cocktails for two...had something that was like a giant volcano. Made everyone look!
