Chef/owner - third generation - expertly prepared our meal on the teppanyaki counter - Beef steaks (sirloin and tenderloin) were cooked to perfection Service was great, wonderful views of the tree-lined river below. Can't ask for a better Japanese experience.

This place is ok. The meat; however, is great. The side dishes/ appetizers are a little step up from Benihanna but not by much. The meat was outstanding and the guy preparing it really knew what he was doing (Let the meat rest during searing,...More
