Visited for our son's birthday. Great food and good entertainment. A little pricey. Food for four at the hibachi grill will cost you a little more than $100.

We ordered the hibachi meal in the dining room rather than at the hibachi table. We wanted to have a conversation without having to pay attention to the chef. I certainly would sit there but I feel a group is much more fun at those tables. The food was just as good. I recommend the sea bass dinner. It was... More

This was a first try at this place, and our last. We ordered food to take out here. It was marked on the menu hot / spicy. What it was, was flavorless and mussy. I do not recommend take out from here. The sides were small and lacked flavor also. I cant say how the dine-in would be. We didn't... More

This is the best restaurant for sweet potato tempura rolls. There is a nice crunch when you bite into the roll. This time I tried a appetizer-beef scallion roll.

One of my favorite types of cuisine and Iron Chef does it splendidly. A great feature is that you are able to order the same great hibachi meals at individual tables if you are by yourself or are just not in the mood for the communal hibachi table cooking.

My sister and I were staying locally to see a concert at the Oakdale Theater. This restaurant came up on Yelp very close to us. The prices looked good and we didn't want Italian which seemed to be every where. Wasn't sure because they didn't get the best reviews. However, we were both pleasantly surprised. Everything was great. Food tasted... More

Our family has been going to Iron Chef for years. The sushi is fresh, delicious and they have great rolls. We love both sushi and sashimi - and the food never disappoints. They do have hibachi, which we did once... we're just not that much into it. We are pretty much sushi snobs... and Iron Chef gets thumbs up all... More

This restaurant is the best Japanese around. We go out for Japanese on a regular basis and this is the best hibachi in the area.

I love Sushi/Sashmi. This restaurant is just okay. There are many other Japanese restaurants in the area that offer better food.
