Only disappointment was we had heard about the fathers day special for days prior to going. Our whole group was going to get that. Then to find out it wasn't offered on Fathers Day sunday. Very strange.

Absolutely love coming here when we do. I understand you get what you pay for, but it seems as though pricing has gone up again. Not certain why but it would cause me to think about another special occasion in going somewhere else possibly. Hope they can lower their pricing in the future.

We brought my dad and husband for fathers day. My dad was not thrilled about having such a late dinner (8:30 reservations) but both my husband and my dad where blown away! Not to mention the huge portions of food and the fact that it taste great!!! Definitely a new go to for us. Thanks.

It was very loud in the restaurant that husband and could even speak eachother. The group at our table was miss the chef and causing problems with the chef which ruined the show. And the food also was very bland that night also. We have been there a few times and it was okay but the other night turned us away for awhile..

Kyoto Palace is great, we always go for birthdays, parties and special occasions. We've had many graduation dinners. You can dress up and be fancy or go in a t-shirt and jeans, it's entirely up to you and the air suits either. Great place for an anniversary date (which is what we had). It's a little expensive, but given the amount of food it's worth it.

The food was way overcooked. The scallops were rubbery feeling and not very tasty. I've never had such a bad meal there before. My daughter was very disappointed in her birthday dinner. Even the chef next to ours commented on how the eggs in the fried rice were burnt.

Great time celebrating my bf's birthday. Our chef made the night extra special. He was hilarious. As always the food was delicious!
Just ok-felt rushed
We had dinner here for my daughter's graduation. We've been here twice before. It was just ok. It was the same old chef's tricks--the same food. I think what bothered me the most was I felt rushed out the door. I was trying to finish my ice cream--which the waitress failed to inform us was included with dinner. (We had to ask) 3 different people came to take my bill and I hadn't even gotten my credit card out yet. I might not have minded, as I know they are trying to turn over the tables but the bill was just about $200.00! If I come and spend $200.00 in your restaurant, please don't push me out the door. The scallops were a little funky--almost an antiseptic taste. Didn't eat them. Everything else was alright-nothing special.
Amazing All Around
Whenever we have a special occasion, we always choose Kyoto Palace to celebrate. This time we were celebrating our daughter's 5th grade promotion. As always, the staff were excellent! As well as the food!

It was really nice how every time we go we are taken care of. My family and I always have a great time and now our son is old enough (14 months) to enjoy the fun experience. So awesome.

Had a wonderful time celebrating our daughter's promotion from elementary school. The environment is fun and lively and the chef did a fantastic job with getting everyone to participate in the catching of the food and also cooking a wonderful meal. Look forward to going back soon.

We were celebrating my mom's birthday and got placed in the corner of the restaurant, which is fine, but our server took 30 minutes to bring out our salad and soups. She was not attentive whatsoever. The food was subpar. Only reason we came here was because Benihana's was overbooked. Not returning again.
Went out to eat with my family for Sunday dinner, and decided this was the place for us, we had 10 guest and the service was wonderful and they are on top of everthing, great cooks

Everything was beyond amazing for my son's graduation. I am so happy we went to Kyoto Palace. Dale and crew really outdid themselves!

This place is good and fun place to be entertained but food is not cooked to your order. Food quality and freshness is good but they over cook on the grill. Ex: ordered steak to be modium rare, cooked to medium well. Vigetanle over cooked to be soggy instead of crunch. Shrimps are over cooked also. Other than that, it was great and fun. Cook was well trained with amazing tricks.

The food was a bit of a disappointment . The seafood and meat was cooked in lard and was over salted . You can see that because they cook it in front of you. Preparation was minimal ( fried and seasoned ). The chef was not as skillful in putting on a show with the cutlery as others restaurants that do this kind of gig . The bill was pretty expensive for what you get . Unlikely we would go there or recommend to anyone else .
Simply put - Disappointing
Brought my wife for Mother's Day. We will certainly not return. I strongly suspect the table-top grill was much hotter than the Chef expected. Almost everything was significantly overdone. Scrambled eggs dark brown like pancakes on bottom when flipped, shrimp starting to blacken when flipped and rubbery overall when served, as were the scallops and lobster. Wife's New York Steak (ordered Medium Rare) did not have a speck of pink in it. The Chef even had a surprised look on his face when he turned over the shrimp and saw it was starting to blacken. I ordered the Filet/Lobster/Scallop combo and my wife had the New York/Lobster/Shrimp (called Mikado Gold on the Mother's Day special menu at $52. Seems it is $14 more to add a 1/3 portion of shrimp to the regular New York Steak and Lobster Combo price. Can't say it was worth it since we never actually got the shrimp). All entrees included an appetizer of shrimp. The Chef apparently noticed he didn't have enough in the original delivery from the kitchen, so he sent back for an additional serving. He started cooking the second portion just as he flipped the first. The first portion was distributed to our table (8 total people) with everyone getting an appetizer portion and those with shrimp in the entrée received their additional portion also - except my wife. I assumed the second portion still cooking was for her, but when it was finished he gave it to another diner. Probably "forgot" who he had shorted her before - or "forgot" that the Mikado Gold special that day included shrimp while the normal Mikado menu item doesn't. The only reason I gave the service a five is the person taking our order and delivering soup, salads and drinks was just fine. I'm not going to count the terrible table service by the Chef in the "service" category as I believe it should be for wait staff. I've eaten at Nijo Castle in Fremont. Same setup but the food was infinitely better prepared and a better value for the money.
Delicious food. Great from family gatherings!
Had a wonderful time celebrating Mother's Day and my Grandson's 6th Birthday. The presentation was Very entertaining and enjoyed by all.
Better than Benihana

Always fun for kids to see food cooked in front of us. Mimosas were spot on!!
Love it here!
Kyoto Palace is our go-to place. We love the whole dining experience and always have a great time. Food is prepared especially for you and is scrumptious.
Excellent service, great fun food!
Service was on point as was the food. Prices were average and the ambiance was great!

Food, service, fun...all great! Our only problem was a birthday for 6 year olds at 7pm-8:30 pm. 7 kids plus a baby, 3 mothers ignoring the kids and 3 dads who had the sense to sit at a separate table. Kid friendly is nice but we thought it would be adults at that hour.
Food and service was FANTASTIC!! Will definitely be going back!!
Super Fun and entertaining!
This restaurant is a fun place to go and have some good laughs while watching your food being cooked! I usually love the food and we go often, but this trip was a huge bust! The meat was so tough and chewy you couldn't enjoy.
Loved it! Perfect for any occasion!

As a group it is a very great place with good food!! They should treat the Birthday guest with a free dinner.

Great iconic spot. Noisy, busy, everyone having a good time . The tepanaki seating promotes a friendly exchange, adding to the good experience.
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Kyoto. And we will definitely be back with friends!
