We have been coming down for Spring Break for past 15 years and always visit by family unanymous vote. Never have had to wait to be seated. Prompt waiting staff. Store and restrooms could use a make over. Food always served hot and delicious. We have always enjoyed Chef Steve and his Jersey accent...Lol... I'm not sure what the other... More

We ate here for Valentine's Weekend and the staff here surely does not disappoint. They interact and engage with the table and the food is phenomenal. The steak and shrimp is really good, to the point that you don't even need the sauce to make it taste better. The bean sprouts on their own was an acquired taste but I... More

It had been awhile since we dined here, because we had been so disappointed in the last "non-show", but thank God, we gave this another try....it was AMAZING!!!! Steve is not only a great showman, but serves the best food with charm and delights all the customers present. I highly recommend this place, as long as you are lucky enough... More

I am really sorry to even have to write this, because I like the "kid" Stevie who pretends to be a Japanese Chef. I remember when he was a busboy here, and believe me, I like him, the fact that he wants to better himself, working hard, he's so friendly and personable, but seriously, he just HAS to learn how...

Went here for Hubby's birthday. Upon entering, we were greeted by smiling wait staff. The place was just a bit dark for my liking. We (3) were seated at a larger cooking table with others who were very friendly. The drinks arrived in a very timely manner, chef came out to prepare our meal. We were definitely NOT disappointed. Food... More

This seems to be the only Japanese steak house in the Venice area and owned by the same family for many years. Clearly popular with the locals and tourist for family events. The inside is dark and in need of updating. The service is okay with older family watching over you as you wait for your chef. Nice that they... More

We both had the shrimp dish special, and it came of course with rice, vegetables, soup and salad, and your 2 special sauces which my friend and I like to add to our rice dish... More

This was a great find in Venice. I had the veggie meal with the chef took great care to cook before any meat touched the grill. There are many of the Japanese steak houses out there, I know. What I liked about this one was the entertainment, atmosphere, and the chef.. who all seemed to be named Steve the night... More

One of the long standing restaurants in this area. The tableside teppan yaki style cooking is not only delicious, but the chefs are true "entertainers" in their preparation. The food is excellent, the menu choices are superb and everything is prepared perfectly. A "not to be missed" experience. We are "regulars" at this establishment.

Thank docbil
