Nakato 'Hibachi' Japanese Restaurant
Food is wonderful! Such a great staff, very friendly and fun. The hibachi chefs are fun and engaging! I have been a few times with my husband, we just recently took my son 3 for the first time, and he had such a great time! Used chopsticks for the first time and had a good time watching the fun while they were cooking and doing the "show".
Great deal for twilight dinner.
What a disappointment this restaurant was. The area we were seated the counter top/table was not clean. The community soy sauce holder had a glop of something on it. It did get cleaned after asking staff to amend the problem. The food was not good. The soup had 1 piece of mushroom floating in it and a tiny slice of green onion, disappointing to say the least. I ordered shrimp and lobster $48.00 the lobster sat on the heat for so long it became rubbery and dry and the shrimp texture made it completely inedible. Just horrible. The texture was that of precooked and frozen shrimp... never had worse. The restaurant itself was not clean... I won't be back.
Always a fun time at the hibachi grill dining. We always bring our out-of-state guests here as well as special occasion dining.
The server was extremely slow and focused her attention on only certain customers at our table. The chef was very nice and entertaining, but the shrimp seemed undercooked. The restaurant itself was extremely loud.
Sat down appetizers where not good for was nothing like reviews ... then we order my friend has shellfish allergy and food was cooked in. Back .. never got his food .....
Don’t believe hype
We had to wait to be seated (even though we had early reservation), and apparently the restaurant didn't initially give us opentable credit for the visit - but all was fixed.
Wonderful place with great food!!
I've been to this restaurant before but this visit was not the best experience with the chef. Service was excellent from the wait staff. The hibachi chef we got was very low key, not entertaining and the overall food flavoring was very bland. Very disappointed with the experience this time around.
We had a great birthday experience! We will definitely be doing this again. We will also recommend this restaurant to all of our friends. The food was great, the server was amazing, and the cook did tricks we had never seen before. This is the best place for a birthday dinner.
Nakato has a great family friendly atmosphere. It is very loud, though, so it wouldn't be a great place if someone in your party is hard of hearing. The food was delicious and they give you a lot, so go hungry. The service was great. I was impressed because there was a large party seated with us.
Food was good and staff was professional. The cook wasn’t humorous was very quiet so no tricks but that’s ok. I would definitely recommend to anyone
Excellent japanese steakhouse. Some of the best fried rice I have had at one. All food was cooked and seasoned perfectly.
I prefer more traditional Japanese restaurants, not hibachi.
Good thing we got there early because when we were seated at our VERY full table at 7:20 (for a 7:30 reservation), everyone was already ordering their dinner. We felt very rushed. And VERY cramped!! To spend $100 on a 45-minute meal was a bit disheartening but the food and service were fantastic.
First time going. Originally we had planned for Benihana, however, the wait was almost 2 hours. This place was not a disappointment to say the least. I Loved the food! The service was great and the over all experience was so cool! We had a seat at the hibachi grill where we were asked to take off our shoes. It added to the experience. It stayed close to the Asian culture as far as decor, lighting, and layout of the restaurant. It’s well worth your money. 10/10 recommend!
The food was excellent as well was the chef. The reservation desk was unprofessional and acted confused.
My wife and I have chosen Nakatos to celebrate special occasions for many, many years, and this was our 56th wedding anniversary. Nakatos is so festive and entertaining, and the food is always awesome. Anyone who has not dined there has really missed out. It is a little noisey, but that is because everyone is having such a good time. I highly recommend Nakatos to everyone. Al
Awesome Place . My family and I really enjoyed the food the fun and the pleasant atmosphere. We will definitely b back. Thsnk You. NaKato for an Awesome experience.
Great fun dinner experience with friends. Good food and service.
Nakato is always a good spot for dinner, and with their M-Thurs Twilight early bird 5:30-6:30 special you can get a good meal for around $20. Great way to try them out if you’ve never been. Show is similar to other hibachi places, but the food quality here is always outstanding. It can get a little noisy at prime time, but not so bad you still can’t have dinner conversation with your guests.
Would definitely recommend Nakato. Wonderful service and great food friendly atmosphere.
Emily, our hostess was awesome. Very friendly & knowledgeable. Food was amazing! Will return!
I have been going to there for years
And I have never been disappointed
The hibachi and draft beer is a great value. Liquor or cocktails are more expensive than normal.
Nakato is our favorite hibachi and will continue to drive 40 minutes to enjoy! Always great food and a fun time!
Fantastic staff and great food! Wonderful overall experience, I will definitely be back!
Great place for great food! The chef was very entertaining and kept the entire table engaged! The drinks are hood too! I enjoyed the ambiance but there were a lot of children around, other than that things were great!
Mixed drinks could have been a little stronger. The service was excellent. I really enjoyed the presentation from the cook. The menu was full of choices. The food tasted pretty good. I was very happy with the portions.
Girlfriend birthday dinner. Taking the shoes off and sitting on the floor was cool and all, but nothing about the food or service that really stand out to me.
Just like any other hibachi restaurant.
Food was fantastic. Atmosphere is fun. My son loved it. Price is typical for hibachi. It’s a little loud in there but not uncomfortably so. We will definitely be back!!
The waitress and chef where not coordinated on the seating and ordering arrangements. My friend has a food allergy and had her food prepared in the back. My food was given to her while he didn't put anything on my plate the whole time. once we finally realized what was going on. They told me to swap plates with her, but of course by that time it was cold. I didn't get my vegatables which was frustrating.
Not complaints at all the only reason I don’t give 5 stars all around is because of the price. Just a little over priced but great food, service and atmosphere.
Got seated at a table where you're basically sitting on the floor. It was very uncomfortable, they should have given us the option. they also crammed us, a party of 2, in with a birthday party of 11. I understand that we will be sharing a table, but there were clearly only 10 seats available at this table total, and they stayed 13
I had a 6:00 dinner here and was visiting on vacation. After I placed my order, another family ordered “twilight” hibachi and told me if you order before 6:30, it’s cheaper. I thought I’m covered because I ordered at 6. The waitress never mentioned any other option to me. Needless to say, I wasn’t given the option. The chef cooked everything in under 15 minutes and there was no entertainment factor; he just wanted to get the job done. The food had no flavor except salt and pepper. My kids normally love hibachi and that’s why we ate here on vacation, but because it was flavorless none of us ate much of it. I brought leftovers home with me so I can season it with something to make it edible.
Staff was extremely slow at refills, seeing if we needed anything etc but food was great
Really good service and great food. We have been coming here for years and we’ve never been disappointed. The valet parking is a plus. One suggestion and/or warning. Be careful when coming down the entrance steps at night. The lighting is poor and their are no handrails. Someone in my party of 6 fell and luckily only sustained bruises.
Great food and service. Don was a wonderful chef and the food turned out amazingly!!
Very good food, very good service. Atmosphere was a bit loud, but otherwise very nice experience.
Great food and great service.
