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...

Great food. A bit surprised they charge $3.50 extra for fried rice considering the prices. Chef was funny & food fresh & hot as it’s cooked right in front of you.

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!

Our chef was very nice and did a wonderful job. However our server was rushing from the moment we got to the table. Didn’t even give us a chance to settle in before asking our drink orders. 5 minutes later came back for food orders. She was very rude.

It was for our anniversary on Valentines Day. So, of course, it was nonstop crowded. The layout lacks a little ambiance. It’s just a big open area full of people. When we made reservations it asked if it was a special occasion. I entered that it was our anniversary. Then on their menu it says they like to help celebrate special occasions so please let your server know. When I told her she said, “Oh, happy Anniversary.” That was it. No mention of it again. We also wanted to order the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer but was told they were not doing appetizers because it was too busy. Our cook was good but not near as entertaining as the younger guy at the table next to us.

So, the food was fabulous, but wouldn’t chose it during a holiday.

We came on a Sunday evening, at 7pm. It wasnt busy at that point. From the time of being seated to the chef coming out it was 45minutes. No one came by to refill a drink, I tried several times to stop a server to ask for more but they kept walking. The other grill around us were operating, but we were the only grill sitting for so long. Finally the chef comes and prepares our meals... without any entertainment whatsoever. No flipping spatulas, tossing eggs, tossing food, or fires. It was like watching someone in a kitchen cook dinner. Then he served the food, but was missing enough for one of our chicken meals. He started for a moment then said "Oh, yours is with his. I gave a double serving,sorry. Split it." For the record, his serving was the same size as the others at the table. So we were left with a half serving each. The bowl of steamed rice ordered took half of the meal time to get to us. He lit a quick fire at the end of cleaning up and was done. The cost of eating here includes the fun of watching it be cooked, the entertainment of it all. Without this, it wasnt worth half the cost. We will never return here.
