First Impression.
Very nice looking!

AFTER THAT.....IT ALL FALLS APART!!! literally!!!! Decorations are broken, paint is chipping....and then the "Service"!!!

Horrible Service.
#1 Our waitress brought us our initial drinks, our food, and then COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED!!!

#2 The managers and our Waitress were involved in some sort of party with other guests...it was completely unprofessional and very awkward. It sounded like a bachelor's party and our Waitress was the Nights Attraction!!! The Manager was encouraging this behavior. ..completely embarrassing!!!!

#3 We have eaten Hibachi up and down the East Coast....THE FOOD.....I don't know what they brought us on those plates but WOW....Food was COLD, BLAND, OVERPRICED!!! There is a Cookout directly across the street.....much better food!!!!

The owners and Management should be ashamed of this establishment!!!

Great food, nice employees, long line though, so call to make a reservation so you do not have to wait particulary if you have more than 2 in your party

Great conversation with the server. Loved the accent as she was Irish. The hibachi chef was very entertaining. Had everyone wondering what he was going to do next. Had me laughing almost the whole time he was cooking. While we ate we got to watch a different chef and I am so glad we did not have him as he was dull and boring. Had a good time, enjoyed the show, and had good service. Wish I had gotten the Chef's name to put one here.

We ate Hibachi at Okino and the food was good. Our chef was good as well. Service was a little slow (got drinks wrong) but friendly and polite.
