Ron of Japan Steakhouse - Northbrook
always great meal and good time at Ron of Japan....................
Food was decent but the service was horrible. It took us 1/2 hour to even get a drink. Dinner started at 8:00 and we didn’t leave until 10:30 because they were so slow. To top it off the AC broke and it was super hot which made the floors extremely greasy and slippery. Very dangerous for any older person. I mentioned the floors to the manager but he didn’t do anything about it. Even the wait staff was slipping around. Sad because we have gone there so many times in the past and will probably not go back anytime soon.
Great food and service very comfortable setting and the environment
We love Ron’s and go once a year since we have to drive from TN., been going for over 30 years. One of our favorite places for dinner. The sauce makes it unique and delicious!! We do miss the ladies that would wear the kimonos and the white footie with sandals. It gave the place a authentic feel. But food is delicious!!!
Ron of Japan is losing its touch. Prices do not reflect quality of food, mainly how its cooked and service was subpar. All we ate yesterday ALL was overcooked. Messy. Never had the veggies almost black burnt there as I did yesterday. My expensive sea bass was overcooked to point where it was served shredded on my plate. . My adult kid asked for medium rare. NONE of her filet was red on inside. Real bad experience for super expensive dinner prices. We will not return again.
Rice was burned, vent was broken all bad
Initially 6 of us we were seated with a party of 3, making it 9 people around a small circular table. My chair was where the chef should be standing 😳. After expressing our concerns about being squeezed in together, the host kindly moved us to a booth table for just the 6 of us which was much better. But we couldn’t understand why they didn’t do that in the first place (we did have reservations, not walk-in). The food was good but not the best I’ve experienced at a hibachi style restaurant.
Always such a fun time and such delicious food!
I’ve eaten at the one in Chicago and it was way better. My food was not good at this location. They got our order wrong. I was very disappointed.
Great experience! Everyone was friendly and the food was out of this world!
We always enjoy heading to RoJ for dinner. Maybe it's just the restaurant getting back up to speed after COVID, but the experience was less than stellar this time. There were miscues by the staff in all the little things - no water, guidance on ordering (they have QR Codes now, but not available when you sit down), waitress didn't know what white zinfandel wine was, chef had to clear plates and glasses as he went since no one was coming to the table to clear it, and the list goes on. The redeeming point was the food. Good thing because as the dinner wrapped up and the waitress was taking payment (which they do at the table now), she announced the amount she was placing on the card loud enough for everyone at the table (and probably the next one over) to hear what we were paying. She did the same for the other party at our table - which I think were on a date - so that must have been embarrassing. As I said, we're going to write this one up as recovery after COVID and expect better next time. We still recommend going, just be aware that it may not be a great experience right now.
Food always good. No room at the table. Cook made us jam together so he had room to cook. Uncomfortable. Had to have them remove my water glass so I had room. Waitress almost knocked over my soda pushing my glasses over to make room for salad
The wait staff was professional doing her job.
The cook at our table was outgoing and “fun” to watch as he prepared our dinner at this cooking station.
Highly recommend this restaurant experience.
The chef and service was excellent! I would have to say, the changes in staff were great, this team is much more attentive.
As always the food was wonderful and the staff was very nice.
We had made 2 different reservations for 9 people (total 18) - one for 7:30 and one for 8 PM because that’s all the website allowed. We called the restaurant to explain that it was I total party and that we wished to be seated together. We arrived at 7:30 & were placed in a “tearoom” . We must have waited almost an hour to be seated, in spite of our efforts to give advance notice to the restaurant. Our server was very attentive but the service was slow and it took another half hour to 45 minutes for the chef to appear & start preparing the food. The food was dry and tasteless. In short, the service was extremely slow, the food was overpriced and mediocre and the checks were confused at the end. In fairness, the atmosphere was nice and the chef put on a good show. Probably won’t return.
I’m sure it’s difficult to control the temperature of the room with all of the grills but it was unbearably hot during our visit. Our waitress also got our order wrong and had a snotty attitude when we asked about it. My husband and I both ordered the crown combination with the filet but when the chef came to the table we only received the filet. The other 3 people sitting at our table confirmed that we ordered the crown combination but our waitress was not having it. Extremely rude. The restaurant manager also seemed to visit every table in the room at some point during their visits but avoided ours for some reason.
First time there.
I like the smaller serving tables, and the no nonsense cooking of your meals.
We had a great time, The service was great, our chef, Jesus, was fantastic, the food is always great, and then there is the egg sauce!
Terrible Terrible Terrible! NO show, no interaction. Food burned and tasted off. Server was amazing but chef didn't make any contact, did absolutley nothing in the way of "hibachi show" and was boring. Made 0 effort. We will NOT be coming back ever!
I would highly recommend, it never disappoints! Great food even better service!
Everything was absolutely fabulous! This is my favorite hibachi restaurant.
Ron of Japan delivers - beautiful atmosphere and great food
We have been going to R of J for over 35 years. The overall quality has really slipped in the past few years. I don’t know if it’s under new management but they need a quality control check. This has been a family favorite for years and is like to see it back to the level that we had been accustomed to.
They used to entertain the table but they did not do that at all. Disappoibted
Everything was good but I miss the old owner
It was amazing
I like going to Ron Of Japan it always was my favorite restaurant. I went there numerous times a year but it has become severely overpriced, it literally has tripled in price and this is quite disappointing to me.
Think they could do a complimentary something for a birthday dessert,.
My friend was not comfortable eating at a full table so they brought us our food at a separate table. They went out of their way to accomodate us, which we really appreciated! Food and service were great!!
It was very yummy!
Not worth the price. The ribeye and sirloin we ordered were dry and not tasty.
Was a wonderful experience. Guys, the Lobster is HUGE!!!
Well worth the value.
It was so fun to be back!
Consistently great menu and service. 30+ year customer and was thrilled to be back eating indoors
Come hungry if you are getting the delicious crown dinner !
Food was excellent. We were glad that the chef was low key and made us everything we wanted to perfection.
Graduation dinner with 7 people. Delicious food and friendly chef. A little loud, but was expected.
Great time. They were so attentive to our needs. They have obviously gotten new staff and they were very good at keeping things sanitary and healthy!! We done!
So much fun! We went to Ron of Japan to celebrate a high school graduation. It was all we expected and more! The food was delicious and our server very attentive. Our chef, Jesus, was engaging and made sure our evening was special. We will definitely be back!
