Food is great here and service is excellent. Sergio is the best. I highly recommend eating here if you like hibachi.

Great food! Great atmosphere! The food was great! Service could have been a little better. We asked for another fork (2 year old dropped his) - server never came back with one.

This restaurant is very good at efficiently seating groups of patrons around the hibachi grills. Our waitress was terrific and our chef was quiet the showman. Delicious food, plentiful portion sizes, and a fun time.

The Hibachi food and show is really fun. This restaurant has a good bar as well. Make a reservation as the place was busy on a weeknight with large groups waiting to get in. The shopping center is a good place to walk around after you have stuffed yourself at the Yamato. Meats/Fish were very good!

Had a really great hibachi meal with the family after spending some time at Broadway at the Beach. Very friendly staff, huge portions and very tasty food! We had shrimp, chicken and filet-- all wonderful!

We made what was probably our fiftieth visit to Yamato's over many years and, once again, walked away pleased with the experience. Food and antics were typical of all Hibachi style steakhouses but Yamato's proved to be as consistent as always.

Great value for the money. Helping are so big I would suggest splitting the hibachi dinner so that it might actually be possible to finish it. Sushi was fresh and servers very attentive. However the floors had quite a bit of food on them and even though we had a late dinner 8:30 I still expect staff to clean up... More

Best Hibachi on the beach! Located at Broadway on the Beach, enjoy great food as the chefs prepare it right in front of you! For what you get, the prices are fare and you'll most likely be taking home a lot of leftovers. Fun atmosphere, excellent food, and easily my favorite hibachi restaurant on the beach!

The waiters and chefs were good, but the manager ruined the occasion. The individual is not customer oriented, and does not try to accommodate the needs of the customer. Additionally, there is no one to complain to but the rude manager. THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Our family came from various parts of the country, and this person had no empathy!

Because we'd had a disappointing meal at the Hard Rock Cafe in the same location, we weren't sure what to expect at Yamato, but were very pleasantly surprised. The meal was one of the best we've had at a Japanese restaurant. They were happy to do a vegetarian option for my daughter. I had the filet, which was outstanding. My... More

Yamato is dinner....with a show! Teppanyaki style grills where the chef prepares the food right in front of the guest! Perfect for large groups, birthday parties, families, couples, golfers, and everybody in between! Yamato also has a separate sushi bar with a wide variety of fish. Enjoy your dinner while looking over Lake Broadway!
