Anthony was our chef. He was witty, charming, and kept us engaged the entire meal. He was so good we would request him again.

This was my wife’s and my first time here We made reservations on a Wednesday night ( no special occasion). The restaurant was about 1/3 full so we really didn’t need them and the hostess never asked. We were the last two to be seated around the table. The server came to take our order. We waited about 20 minutes for the chef. The food was good. We had steak and chicken. The steak was a little tough though. The chef did the typical “egg roll and Pepsi joke with the sauce”. Immediately after serving the last of what was on the grille the server was bringing the cups of sherbet. She asked if we needed boxes. I’m not that slow of an eater but it was like they were interested in getting everyone out of there. I would still recommend this restaurant. It just didn’t seem any different than any other Japanese steakhouse

We chose this restarauant because friends had said that it was good. We decided to try it as part of our weekly family activity. When we got there, the restaurant wasn't at all like the pictures I had seen.

The hostess sat us at our table and we were three of six people but we were seated on the opposite side next to a beam. As a result my daughter had to sit semi in the asile where people were moving back and forth behind her causing her to constantly shift her chair to allow them to go back and forth.

The food was decent and the chef was entertaining but it was certainly not worth the price we paid for dinner. It's okay if you want a quick show and decent food but certainly not anywhere I'd go for a "wow" experience or for any special occasion.

Made the mistake of scheduling a reservation for 13 thinking we’d all be able to enjoy the experience together, but not so. We needed up divided and basically eating separately. Not my idea of a great party. Food was good as always and the cook was entertaining. Just wish they’d make it clear that we’d all be somewhat split.

Had great vibes, the food was yummy and you could see how it was prepared before your eyes. The Chef was charismatic and made the entire evening. He did throw hot food at us but it was fun if you don’t mind having food thrown at you. We got the opportunity to sit with strangers which is always a bit strange but not in this setting. Will definitely go back it was very good food and great entertainment.

We have visited the Iron Chef several times and typically for a special occasion as was this. We had a great time and will visit again. The staff was very friendly and helpful as was our Chef. A couple of minor things. First, not sure how update the online menu is because a few bar items were not available. House policy is people cannot be seated until everyone in the party arrives. I get that for a busy night but during the middle of the week at 6pm when the majority of the tables were unoccupied seemed a bit silly. We did get seated about 5 minutes before our Son arrived though. Lastly, took a bit longer than it should have to pay our bill. Waited approximately 10 minutes after receiving the check. Little things yes but they can add up if not managed correctly. Looking forward to our next gathering there.

We go here once a month at least, but this time the portions were small, the food had no flavor. And the chef was busy caring on conversation and not paying attention to food so the meat was overcook and the vegetables were undercooked. We had a reservation and we arrived about 5 minutes early and they put us at a table that had already ordered so we were rushed to put in our order. Not the best time for a anniversary dinner.

Three of us went to Chef Japanese Steakhouse for the experience of having our meal prepared in front of us as the Chef put on a culinary show. Enjoyed the evening and food was cooked to perfection. I had calamari and it was tender and delicious.

I go to Iron Chef quite often and the food is always great. There are some chefs that are a bit better than others, but for the best experience I recommend Anthony. He’s incredible and wildly entertaining.

We usually go to the Iron Chef 3-4 times a year. It's a favorite for special occasions, or just for fun! It's always great to watch the kids enjoy the show...even the big kids like me!

As with many places of this nature. Food quality is determined by the chef you ger. This particular chef was very tasty except for the fried rice, it was crunchy and had no flavor. Hard to just "deal with it" when its an upcharge of $4 per person.

The food is always amazing, especially the fried rice! The over all experience felt a little rushed like they were trying to get us in-and-out very quickly While I appreciate prompt service and energetic servers, I think you should also feel relaxed and not in a hurry. As always it was spendy, but you really go for the experience and the food.

Service and food was good. They over charged us for our fried rice and then when we asked about it they said there was nothing they would do about it. And they do not do substitutions.. spent way to much money on dinner for them to over charge us for rice...

Chef was wonderful, however food was terrible! I’m not sure if this was his fault since he seemed to be experienced yet aware that everything was burning. maybe the grill was just turned up too high but the rice was burnt, the shrimp was burnt, the orange sauce which I heard is to die for and better then the others was bland and tasteless. I didn’t want to complain because I’m just not the kind of person to do that but was secretly hoping someone at our table Would because you could tell nobody was happy with their food. We normally go to another steakhouse but thought we would give ironchef a try. For a $100 bill for just the two of us, I was extremely disappointed.

Food was good and I typically would not complain but our chef came over to start the food and immediately started in with gay jokes thinking it was funny to hit on my husband. We had our 3 small children with us and did not find this funny. Because of all the joking from this chef we could not even enjoy out time with our family. Not worth the $160 we spent on this meal. I could have gone to any other restaurant and spent half that price and actually enjoyed the time with my family. This chefs language and jokes were completely inappropriate and we will never be returning to this restaurant!
