A group of 7 of us made a reservation for 7:45. When we got there we were seated at that exact time and approached by our server right away to take our drink orders. Our drinks, soup, and salad all came out very fast. Needless to say, our server was great. Unfortunately, it took our chef about an hour to... More

Meal is prepared by a chef at the traditional 10 person table. All ingredients are fresh and well prepared. Entertaining chefs are a bonus.

I have eaten here a few times over the year with friends and my family while vacationing on IOP. We have always enjoyed the hibachi grill show and food!

This week we received TERRIBLE service by the server in the sushi bar. (No wonder there were zero people sitting at the sushi bar on a Friday evening). Our Experience: We sat down and were greeted by the server. We were The ONLY 2 people sitting at the sushi bar. I ordered a Sapporo beer...when she delivered the beer, I... More

I normally do not frequent the showtime Japanese restaurants but my wife loves the food. We were a little after the rush hour crowd and without a reservation. We were seated and then one other, a regular was seated with us at the hibachi table. Lots of room! The restaurant has a very good policy of not making people wait... More

We were hungry after a day of exploring, and had worn ourselves out on seafood. Yamato was an excellent choice. We ordered ahead, picked up the food, and drove about 10 minutes to our house. When we unwrapped the food, I was so impressed by the presentation. Whomever prepared the sushi took great care in packaging it and presenting in... More

Went with a co-worker and his family. Expected usual flair and good food associated with the typical Japanese Steak Houses. The service was nice, the quantities off all the portions were nice too. Missing was the flavor and tastes normally found. Everything was pretty bland including the cook's show skills. (even the little kids were not impressed.).00000000000000

I really enjoy sushi on Friday nights and have enjoyed taking out sushi from here. The service is excellent and the food and value are equally as good. I highly recommend this restaurant for sushi.

Please stay away from this place if you want to be treated nicely and respectfully. The worst experience ever in my life to be treated just because I am an asian. Mike who said that he was the manager (if that is his real name) charged me gratuity for to go order automatically and without asking me while he didn't... More
