Stolen iPhone, something IS fishy alright! – My iPhone was stolen while my table was being bussed. I noticed immediately and contacted the management who suggested that my friends might have stolen it! We spent over $500 at their establishment and they made me feel like I was a homeless person looking for a hand-out. Terrible customer service, wouldn't trust them to make me raw fish dishes!
Great Place!! – When I go out to eat, I expect to pay a lot for my meal. I also expect to get a lot of food for that money. I'm a bit of a foodie and only want the best. Well, this place did deliver a great meal that I really enjoyed, only the portion was so small that I left feeling hungry still. The price wasn't worth the meal. However, the ambiance is very nice
Good hibachi and sushi – good place, gave me sushi rolls instead of sushi, but it was all good and there was plenty of food. It just didn't stand out among any other hibachi resturants.
SOMETHING **DEFINITELY** IS FISHY – I have patronized this restaurant since 1994, and regretfully will no longer visit it. At its best, it served very good sushi and meals, and its service was friendly and fast. Over the past year, I've seen a marked decline in both food and service. Three times I visited the sushi bar and found it unattended. I waited for nearly 20 minutes before asking the waitress if I could order from the grill. Two other times chefs were working, but didn't come by, so again I had to order from the grill. One of the few times I did get to order sushi, I received dry mackerel that crumbled when I bit into it. During my most recent visit, I couldn't get a sushi chef to come by so again ordered from the grill. At lunch a meal of steak, scallops, and shrimp is $17.99. At dinner a steak and scallop meal costs $28.99. Though the waitress said the dinner platter would be larger, it was the same size as the lunch platter, just $11 more expensive. And the food was lackluster -- it included "shrimp flambe'" which actually consisted of two teeny 2" shrimp wedged into rice. I'll never be back. Sad to see a restaurant change for the worse like this.
