From the time we got there we were greeted with such nice greeting from the hostess we had a party of 6 had to wait on the ex wife and her sister but they got us in as soon as they arrived the waiter was very respectful and nice and the chef was great my daughter had a great time thank you for everything
The cook/chef did not really interact with us at all. He was nice but boring.
We took our daughter there for her birthday. We mentioned that in our reservation.
They brought her fruit and sang to her and then charged us for it. $ 7.00 for a few bites of pineapple. After Spending over $200.00 between 6 of us, you have to charge for that?
Not sure we would come back.
The whole point of going to Genji was to have that interaction and fun with the chef and ppl around the table but he did not say a word. I didn't see a difference of going to restaurants where they cook food inside the kitchen. I don't want to stare at my food while it's being cooked.
We traditionally go to Genji Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate birthdays. Our birthday guy had never been there. Was very disappointed that the chef did not do ANY of the usual "show" this time. That is part of the Genji experience! Felt like we only got 1/2 our money's worth. Food was great as usual.
We have eaten here a lot. Came back for my daughter's birthday and was seated next to a bachelorette party. They kept adding people to the table which ended up at my table. They wanted to-go orders from the cook and distracted him constantly. The Chef did NO tricks, no entertainment at all because of this party. The manager kept allowing the party to get bigger at my expense. I told the waitress we were really disappointed and she apologized and said she was doing her best. The manager should have stepped in and done something. We normally have a great time here, but it will be a long while before we go back. The Chef went to another table and they were having a great time! Very sad for my daughter on her birthday.
The restaurant is very nice, and clean, and so are the seating areas. However our actual server was rude and not enthusiastic when we sat at her table, although she was nice to the other guests. The chef was very kind and funny, and made an entertaining performance for everyone. The food was great and you get a lot for lunch time prices. I would recommend going there, but choosing a different server. I will probably go to Beni Hana next time.
The only gripe I have is that in the comments section when I made the reservation online I noted that it was my daughter's birthday. We even walked in with gift bags. I thought they would recognize her, but no one did. Other than that, food and service was great, fast, and delicious.
I have been here many times before and it is still my most FAVORITE place to eat. Just a few nights ago my boyfriend brought me back for an anniversary dinner and it was lovely. We had a reservation set for 7:45 and when we got there we were seated right away even though it was packed. They seated us about 15 minutes before our actual reservation time. It was great! The chef kept us entertained and cooked our food to perfection. Everyone else sitting at our table was very friendly and one even offered to take a picture of us. It's such a nice place and the food is amazing. It is super kid-friendly and I would reccomend Genji to everyone. :-)
We are from Texas, but our family lives in Columbus. Every time we visit, we take everyone for great food and a fun experience at Gengi. Make sure you make reservations. We made ours on-line and it made the entire evening more enjoyable knowing we would be seated on time.
Very fun place. We take out of town guests and is a popular choice for special occasions like birthdays. Scallops are large. Steaks are tender. Chicken....taskes like chicken. The cooks are fun and do a good job of entertaining. We live near Fusion but choose to drive 45 minutes (or more in rush hour) to go to Genji. Only negatives I have is they tend to overcook sea food. And, it's getting a little run down. They are busy so I'm sure it's just a cycle.
we recently went there for my birthday. The chef was great but the servers and hostesses seemed ditzy and inattentive. a couple of times I looked around the table and everyone's drink was empty... Unacceptable since we were one of three tables. Other than that, it was a great experience. Love their yum yum sauce!
I was very upset that even though I had made a reservation they would not seat us until the WHOLE party was there. So I had to hold/entertain my one year old until EVERYONE was present. I came with 5 out of the 7 in our group so the majority was present but they still wouldn't seat us AND it wasn't busy!
Nice place, food and portions were very good. Our chef was fantastic, fun and involved. He seemed to really enjoy what he does. Our waiter was okay but we told him of a serious seafood allergy in our group and he forgot to mention it to our chef. We mentioned it again to our chef since he clearly hadn't been told and started to cook the shrimp first. I would recommend this place, it was enjoyable, food was yummy.
Want dinner and a show? I love this place for the atmosphere, entertaining chefs, and fabulous food...most of all the yum-yum sauce! I love watching everything I am going to eat be cooked in front of me! My filet was perfectly cooked, and so juicy. The yum-yum sauce is the perfect complement to well, everything! My husband had the steak and shrimp which he said was flavorful and hit the spot. The only complaint is if you sit too close, your eyebrows might get singed! The chef had amazing knife work and was a lot of fun to watch. Overall, I can't wait to go back!
Our visit last night was early, so it wasn't very crowded or loud yet. The service was wonderful and our chef was AMAZING! I love to watch them cook and do tricks with the food and utensils. The steak was cooked perfectly and had amazing flavor. I can't wait to eat here again!
Service and performance was great, but the food wasn't as good was I expected. Too much oil, butter and soy sauce. It may be good for healthy people but not for those who has eating restriction. I think your restaurant would be better if the chef asks for amount of seasoning before they cook.
I made a reservation for two people on Friday January 2nd at 8pm. A gentleman without a reservation was told it would be a 30 minute wait for a party of five people. My party was seated 35 minutes after my reservation. My table waited over 10 minutes before we received water. We waited another 15 minutes to receive our soup and salad. A table that was seated approximately 20 minutes after my table received their soup and salad right after we were served, i.e. they were served significantly quicker than my table. After their hibachi chef arrived before my table's chef, I said something to hostess.
Shortly thereafter, my table's hibachi chef arrived. I was seated to his right so I was served first. He went around the table twice starting with me and ending with me. I was served significantly less rice and vegetables than every other person at the table. In fact, I was literally served three bites of zucchini. I paid the same amount for my dinner as everyone else, however, I was given drastically less food.
I wanted to speak with the manager after my meal, but he was seated at a table talking to guests. I learned during the 35 minutes that I waited for my table that those people to whom he was speaking was his family.
I was a terribly frustrating dinner.
Wife had the hankering for some genji so we headed over. Was sat right away (Wednesday evening). Service has always been excellent here. Chef put on a show and was extra attentive to the kids sitting at our table. Little things like setting aside some fried egg to put on the kids plates so they could eat a small bite while the food was being cooked. Very attentive and very professional. Food quality, taste, and portions excellent as well. We end up taking home more than we ate while there.
Reservation was for 6:45pm but we weren't seated until nearly 7:10pm, also took quite some time for chef to arrive; seemed under-staffed for the evening. Once chef began cooking the event was entertaining but a bit drawn out. Food was just as requested and tasty as usual.
Waiter wasn't very good. We were left alone for a long time & we had to get boxes ourselves. Weren't aware we would have to pay over $15 for a birthday pineapple. Asked for a strawberry daiquiri and received a virgin daiquiri for some reason. Weren't really happy with any of this seeing as we spent a lot of money here with our group.
Genji is one of those places that you can go and always get great food. We go more for the food than the "show" but it's always fun to watch people who have never been before as they build the onion volcano! Sushi was good, my son said the calamari was great and you can't beat hibachi swordfish.
