My overall experience at Sakura was fantastic! The service was very professional and I would definitely come here again. My reason for this posting is that Scout needs to be rewarded for his great costumer service. He was interactive with the child that was at our table and made all of us feel welcoming. He developed conversations with us and... More

Expected a wonderful Japanese steak house. Of the 15 of us in our group, we all agreed that the service was ok but most of us felt queasy after the meal. When we completed our canyon trip we ate at another restaurant in town.

Stopped in @ Doubletree bc local steak house was booked. Just a lucky accident. Lounge bar & bartender were good while we waited for seats (every 1/2 hour). Our chef (Scout) was on point at the hibachi--we are veterans of teppanyaki and he had some tricks up his sleeve for a young guy. Fried rice-great Salad-cool/crisp & tasty Soup--quite good... More

We went on a Thursday night and had no wait. You can order off the sushi menu and the teppanyaki menu if you have at least 2 people ordering off the latter. There were flying eggs and an onion volcanos along with sassy banter and finished with delicious food. Although I didn't partake of the sushi, my friends were surprised... More

We got their early with no reservation. The food was good, the chef was entertaining-- although he forgot what I ordered and gave my portion of shrimp to another guest at the table. The prices are on the high side for not offering a shrimp appetizer. Over all we left full and happy.

Service was very fun, all of the Chef have a lot of sense of humor. Atmosphere was so excellent with the other clients. The food was delicious, I even forget the sauces (what a shame). The best teppanyaki we made. A very nice surprise to find this restaurant during our road trip and a very good memory who gave us... More
