Always look forward to hibachi at Desaki. Very nice atmosphere, very good service and food yummy. Chefs are very skilled and entertaining. Good interaction with diners, especially if children present. Could get pricey but we had filet mignon special and for the 2 of us, it was about $62 which was very reasonable for what you get; edamame appetizer, soup,... More

First time here and we ordered drinks and appetizers. OMG. Off the charts, excellent mango martini, skewered steak, scallops wrapped in bacon and lo mein noodles. Service fantastic, atmosphere is exquisite, prices are reasonable. Food to die for. Can't ask for anything else. Bravo, Desaki. Can't wait to come back.

Although this was Grandma and Grandpa's first visit here, it was the second for our daughter and twin grandson's. Of course, they are the experts when it comes to hibachi experience, as this is the dining they prefer, and this was their first choice for dining this evening. The food preparation and presentations is the big attraction for this type... More

We all ordered Hibachi-who had chicken who had NY strip steak etc...everyone loved what they ordered. There is nothing to complain about. The décor was beautiful. It is decorated with a light wood-not like most with dark wood. Our chefs (we had 2) were outstanding! The place was very clean and made you feel welcome and comfortable from the second... More

My husband and I went here one night for dinner. Service was below average. Food was average, bland, not anything special. The menu also says they don't provide free refills on regular drinks which is insane considering the price. We didn't even get offered any of the sauces. Wouldn't go back again, not worth the money.

The food and the show are great. We enjoyed it alot. It's a big place so going with a larger group isn't an issue. It is in line with New York Habachi pricing. A few things to note: -they assign your seat so you may not have the best view. -they charge 25 cents for water and there are no... More
