"Food was WAY overpriced! Service was rushed. Performance lacked character. I expect to pay double for wine in a restaurant not triple. I don't mind paying for great food and wine however this experience was a complete disappointed. $300 for 3 people and 2 that shared chicken is outrageous. I would not recommend or return."

"The chef and food were excellent. However, the attitude of manager was terrible. Due to the tram was out of service for 30 minutes, we were late. Though we explained about the situation, he asserted that the tram was OK during the whole day. He made us lairs! How can it be happened at Hilton? We were very disappointed."

"I booked this restaurant for 4 people, 2 children & 2 adults. I cannot complain about the chef as he did his best. However the size of the portions were too small. Also it seems that we were rushed through our meal so much that I could hardly take a breath"

"Imari teppanyaki is always a good (albeit expensive) time ... food is well prepared and the chef was suitably entertaining but not overly showy. Only problem was a long wait between being seated with drinks and the chef arriving due to the tables running behind. Still a worthwhile experience. Do be prepared for a hefty bill."

"It was ok. The chef Prens was kind and had a great sense of humor. He was only at our table for about 20 minutes while he cooked the food and there was very little knife skills. Looking around the room it seemed to be that way at every table. The food was outrageously expensive. Price gouging is in full effect here. I ordered Shrimp and steak and my husband order Chicken and Shrimp. Both proteins were tasty but was only about 5oz each in serving size. They were served with a small cup of soup, a small bowl of rice, a grilled mixture of onion, sprouts, and zucchini, and for dessert a 1 inch square of cheesecake. Our 2 kids had about 2oz of shrimp each from the kids menu. We each had a soda too. Our bill was almost $200. Just insane...."

"Mediocre food, very long wait times (we waited 75 minutes, everybody around us waited at least 30 to 60 minutes). Very expensive (really overpriced). Location in the Hilton Waikoloa is not great (long walk from the entrance)."

"Though it wasn't easy to make or confirm a reservation (despite using open table!) this was a good experience. The restaurant is in the Hilton which feels like the Vegas version of Hawaii; they offer a tram service from the lobby to the restaurant, which is sorta bananas, but hey. Once there, everyone was very nice and the food was tasty, though I wish our chef did a little more with his cooking utensils to make the show of it more exciting for my kids. That said, my daughter did say it was her favorite restaurant we went to."

"Staff was running late so we sat down 30 minutes after our reservation. We didn't get the "show" you expect with tappenyaki because they were running behind. The waitress was inflexible about different combinations but the food was good."

"If you expect your favorite Teppanyaki out of Imari, you will be let down. We were on our honeymoon and were hoping for the same high energy, vibrant atmosphere that we're used to and we were disappointed. After receiving cocktails, we waited 45 min for a less than ok edemame appetizer. The chef was entertaining and the food was decent enough, but what kind of Teppanyaki doesn't serve fried rice?!?! The rest of the service and overall feel of the restaurant was Golden Corral with a flat top grill."

"I enjoyed the ambience and my company of course. The food, sushi and my scallop and shrimp, was delicious. The entertainment of the Teppanyaki chef was great. Having that small friendly group added to the enjoyment of dining. Service was on key."
