    It’s a show and dinner all together. I went with my husband, 6&8yo daughters, my mom and mother in law when my mom was visiting from out of town. Our chef was funny and talented. The food was delicious. My kids loved it. They thought it was so fun to watch the chef cook while we were eating and the food was tasty. What’s not to love? I am not sure why the rating here is so low. The ribeye steak was legit, one of the best steaks I’ve had in a long time. I didn’t even order it and was trying my husbands next to me and it was so good I decided I would get it next time we come. Everything tasted great and we had fun. Great place to eat with the family, even young children!

    It was a great place! The food is delicious which they can cook in front of you or like a normal restaurant. The waitress and chef were nice, and there was very little wait because they gave the food to you pieces at a time (but it's still good!) There's a pretty fish pond outside but you can't see it in the restaurant but not a big deal. Overall, it's a great place!❤️

    I literally never write reviews but today it felt warranted. It was my husband’s birthday today and my son drove in three hours from college to spend with us. All my husband wanted to do for his birthday is eat at Wasabi. We got there and they told us the wait was 10-15 minutes. We stood in the front at the hostess stand while we watched family after family get seated. We thought, maybe they had all called early, and continued to wait patiently, until our patience ran out. The hostess said she didn’t know what happened and put us back on the list. We continued to wait, as they kept seating more and more families. We waited an hour until they finally got us seated. Then we waited at the table for another 20 minutes before we ever got a drink order in. Needless to say, we were starving by then. The food was okay and the chef was good. We all went to the restroom at the end and there was no toilet paper in the stall, there were paper towels and toilet paper all over the floor in the ladies bathroom while one of the workers was fixing herself in the mirror and never bothered to straighten up the messy bathroom. My husband said the men’s bathroom was pretty bad too. It just left a terrible impression and didn’t make a very good birthday lunch. We would never go back. I hate leaving a bad review because I’ve worked in the service industry but this was just really bad service.

    The food was good with very large portions. Only 4/5 stars because the salad was bad and overpriced (half the bowl was water and the lettuce was hard chunks). Otherwise, my chicken hibachi was great.

    It's always a great place to eat. Can be pricy if you get a lot of different stuff, but it's worth the price. Since the last time we came they have started adding onions and green peppers to the chicken, so make sure you ask to not have that if you get the chicken and don't want it.
