Kyoto Palace Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The "chef" did next to nothing to encourage laughter or ambiance to his presentation. The rice was overcooked and had little flavor. The shrimp was overdone and had no flavor as well. The soup was too salty. The lobster was not evenly divided between the guests but it was tasty, so were the scallops. The tempura was ok but it was not served with any sauce. The fried oysters were ok, I did not eat any but everyone else seemed to enjoy them. I guess the waitress forgot, The waitress was not overly attentive. One of our party ordered the white rice and she had to get up and find a waiter to get ours for the rice. I use to love this place but it has really gone down hill. I seriously doubt if I will ever go back.
Celebrated Valentine's Day, had a delicious dinner. Our chef definitely knew how to bring the flavors out in the food. The chicken fried rice was fabulous and my filet Mignon was cooked how I ordered it. They had unlimited champagne which was really nice and all the ladies got a red rose. Would highly recommend if you want a good satisfying meal. Great place to celebrate a special occasion but note it tends to be a little on the loud side.
Ordered Mai tai's on the waiter's recommendation horrible couldn't drink them. Cook burnt the eggs and added them to the fried rice, couldn't eat it. Salad dressing gross, couldn't eat it. Best part was the green tea ice cream. They bought it. Eight of celebrating a birthday, never again.
2 stars is generous. The only thing worse than the food was the service. Had to ask soooo many times to just get water. The chef thinks he's funny, but it just translated into not caring about what he was supposed to be doing... cooking. Food was burned and either over or under seasoned. He took the lid off the soy sauce bottle to "throw" some on the fried rice. I think he was trying to be funny. At least half a bottle worth came out. His facial expression made it clear that wasn't what was supposed to happen, then he kept going. The result was horribly salty rice. Then he wanted to stop and take selfies while the food burned. Steak was slathered in garlic butter, but lacked salt and pepper. Worst meal I've ever had there.
Initially, things did not go well because their was some confusion on my part in not letting them know once everyone arrived, after I realized this (we had already been waiting for close to 30 minutes ) they informed me that we would be seated shortly. After 20 minutes passed I went to speak with the manager who was very accommodating and professional. We were finally seated (an hour after our reservations) but the manager was gracious enough to send us ample quantity of appetizers at no charge. For this reason, I want to commend the manager for this gesture and we did have a nice time celebrating my daughter's birthday! Good job to the manager!!
I've been coming here since I was 3 years old and have celebrated many many special occasions over the years. I love the restaurant, the food, the ambiance, and the talented chefs. However, our server for my birthday dinner this most recent trip was terrible. She didn't check up on us, forgot to bring us the water we requested, and forgot to bring my friend's Sprite he ordered. Her attitude was horrible. She seemed angry and short tempered, and was upset when we asked if we got ice cream and responded by saying "I already asked you if you wanted dessert and you said no. So now you want it?" Her tone was disrespectful and rude. We were all disappointed by the service, especially since it was for a birthday dinner.
Otherwise our chef was wonderful and the food was great as always. I will continue to come back, but hope she is not my server again.
We came here for my husband's birthday. We come here often for special birthdays. Our favorite chef was off on the night, so that was slightly a bummer. But we love the food, especially the fried rice. Always a great time at Kyoto Palace, and we live close so that's a real benefit too. This is a great neighborhood place!!!
Food was good but the cook assigned to us was rude & grumpy!!! It's our first time to eat there and expecting a much better service but we were so disappointed! Find another place that has a better service! In fairness to the server, he was great! But the cook! It's a no no! Did not really say anything to him since he's holding those sharp knives!
Kyoto is always a hit! We took our grandparents out for a thank you dinner for the holidays. Always enjoyable, tasty, never disappointing. This time we dared to take our kids (6 & 2). They behaved and loved it. Both the show that was put on and the food. Our 2 year old even tasted fish eggs!! The cuts of meat are always perfect and the portions are bountiful. Kyoto is wonderful.
It's not quite up to what it use to be but it is still a fun experience with decent food. I like it for special occasions but won't go as often if they don't improve the quality of their food. This chef was a little less experienced than others and overcooked the shrimp and charred the veggies. The steak was done very nicely.
We went for my husbands birthday. The restaurant was full of other birthdays, so it is clearly a popular spot for such an occasion. The chef was entertaining. The food was fresh and delicious. Also, they celebrate birthdays by getting the whole restaurant to sing and gifting a slice of cheesecake. Our kids loved it, and my husband was happy. Great experience for all of us!
Kyoto was a bit of a disappointment to me. The service was average. Not particularly special or bad. It was as expected. The food was a bit of a disappointment. The quality was low and to give the food flavor, they used tons of butter and gave you two sauces to add the flavor. Sadly, most of the sauce at the table was not used. It was wasted. The restaurant looked dated and depressing to me. Unfortunately the menu's were so used, food and grease stains all over them. It was really disgusting. I did not get a laminate copy but paper menus. I had to exchange the menu for another slightly better one. Still a stain on it. As far as the chef, they were typical of what you expect at a place like this.
