The restaurant was not fashionable 35 years ago but the food was very good. We went there on a Thursday night at 6pm. Who would think it would be busy not and open table and they had.a.good turnover rate. But we were not rushed by any means. The food was very good. Most of us had the filet mignon and... More

This place is terrible! From the poor food quality, to the terrible service, all the way down to the dark, dingy, smokey environment. I have been to steak houses like these many of times in a few different states, and this is by far the worst.

Every time my family and I go to Gojos, we have a great time. We limit our visits to about twice per year but each time we are highly satisfied. I do miss the lobster tail but I love the teriyaki chicken and shrimp. The rice with yellow sauce is awesome and the veggies are always excellent and of course... More

If you are looking for a fun dinner with an exciting chef displaying his culinary skills this is not the place. Lit some alcohol in the grill straight from the bottle....that was it. Food was very average. Had a bucket of hollandaise sauce to put on your Japanese food?

Sad to see our favorite place go downhill. The food is good but not great. The quality of shrimp is not the same, They no longer serve real crab. And they have been shut down by the health department too many times to count. But it was our favorite place. So we went back. The food was ok. But Not... More

So, Gojos has been a staple near the Plaza forever. I went there for prom and have gone with friends over the years. I took my family and it still looks like they have not maintained it from when I went there for prom 27 years ago. The service was bad. The chef was not fun or entertaining. The food... More

Do not go to Gojo's expecting a fancy night out. Go for the food. This decor of this place has barely changed since I was a kid, but the food is still fantastic! Avert your eyes from the trash and cigarette butts around the perimeter of the building. Or better yet, arrive after dark! I have eaten a many other,... More

Gojo's has been my favorite restaurant for more than 25 years. I love the food - it is delicious. Seriously, I want to marry the yellow sauce. That being said, I will probably never go back again. We went for dinner Saturday night and the experience was just so disappointing. The entire time you are at this restaurant, you are... More
