Kyoto Palace Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I've always enjoyed Kyoto Palace for bot ...
I've always enjoyed Kyoto Palace for both the food and the dining experience but we didn't enjoy the dining experience last Friday night as we felt like we were being rushed through the entire meal. Eight of us were there to celebrate my daughter in law's 30th birthday and we brought our own wine since it was a special occasion. Our waitress was intent on refilling half empty wine glasses in an attempt to drain our bottles before dinner was even served, I'm assuming this was so that we would order more. She was friendly but we got the distinct impression throughout the whole meal that we were being rushed so they could fit in the next group. In terms of the food, it was just ok, whereas on other occasions, it was pretty tasty. Not sure what to say other than maybe they were having an off night, but for the $ we spent, I wish we had gone elsewhere.

had never been there before and i made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday. our wait for a table was great, almost immediately. the waitresses are awesome and very attentive. the chef to our surprise and liking spoke Spanish. he was very quiet but attentive and entertaining! the food portions were perfect. it seemed like small amounts but WOW! very filling and we even took some home!
thank you Kyoto and its employees for a wonderful experience! will definitely go again!

This place is always good. I think we had a relatively new cook, as he did engage with our group much. The food was tasty as always and the cost is still reasonable! It's our go to place when we want a place to take a large group.

Cook was very sloppy. Was trying to hard to be funny. When he was pouring the sauces he made a mess and the sauce was all over the dishes . He also had rice everywhere. He had an extra bowl of fried rice and instead of sharing it with those that had fried rice, he put it off to the side and took it away. I have always loved Kyoto Palace but was very disappointed this time. A very very messy cook. It was disgusting

It was so loud during dinner I couldn't hear my guests when they spoke to me. The server had to repeat everything several times, leaning over the cooktop to get our order. I felt like I was yelling all night.
I enjoyed the experience but I won't be back. It seems that it's become a rowdy party place.

Food was great, but it felt very hot in the dining room area. Our chef was not as enthusiastic and creative with his cooking as I have experienced before. But everyone at our table enjoyed celebrating my son's birthday. Thank you.

The food was amazing, as always! We got the special of the night-New York Steak, chicken and scallops. The fried rice never disappoints...it was delicious! The service was great, especially Ashley, one of the managers. Can't wait to go back!

We love this place, go there often. One thing we didn't like this time was when the server brought us our soup she placed each bowl in the middle of our dinner plates. You ever see the serving trays they use? It's used for everything so all the germs from the tray are now on your dinner plate. Yum.

Though we had reservations, there was a very long wait to be seated, over 30 minutes. We were eventually seated in a back room that had an odd odor. The food and table service was fine, and the table-side cook was outstanding and hilarious.

We had a table for 10 and I have to be gluten free. The server knew exactly what kind of soup and salad to bring me and the chef was so thoughtful! He prepped and cooked my food before everyone else's so that mine was not contaminated. :)
Yeah! Great job!

The food was great and so was our waiter, but our chef was just rude. He was trying to be funny but it just was not working, he accidentally got some food in my mother's drink and did not even apologized and I even got burned while he was cleaning his stove, just plain rude. But the food, like always, was great. And so was everything else

Always great experience however I did not include on the people my grandson who's 6 mos. I was surprised they put my guest and I in the middle of the table with my grandson out in the middle of the isle. It was a little weird I never said anything since all the other guests were already seated. So make sure if you want your kids/grandkids at the table you include them in the people part!

I decided to go to Kyoto Palace because Benihana was fully booked for 2. So we decided to try Kyoto. We were seated quickly. The ordering was quick along with the food being cooked. It felt rushed and the portions were small and the fried rice was a little burnt. I have to say the waiter and cook were great service wise.

Went there with some family and friends on a Friday Night. The atmosphere is casual and nice. The presentation of the food by the chef who cooks your meal in front of you was entertaining and fun. The food itself was not exceptional. I had chicken and shrimp...shrimp and chicken were both overdone and bland. I also felt rushed by the servers because they kept asking if I was done with my food when I was half done with something. Perhaps because there is little table room they are trying to keep it cleared efficiently but I felt it was as if I was being hurried to eat and rushed out the door. I prefer a slower paced meal I guess. The main event of the restaurant is watching the chef prepare your meal in front of you and joke though, so if you haven't eaten there before, it is worth a try at least once for that especially if you have kids dining with you.

I made my reservations on line and it was very easy. It has a auto confirmation that lets you know all is good with a time reminder. We got there rite at our scheduled time and we were sat within the minute we arrived. And the food was great and all was good .

We usually go to Bennihana for my sons birthday so thought we would try something different.
The waitress was lovely and was always there checking on us. The chef was hard to understand due to noise level, his more quiet voice and accent. He was not flamboyant or super entertaining as we usually experience in restraurants like this. Was disappointing.
Food was okay. Over cooked but flavorful.

I usually have a very good if not excellent meal here. This time it was not as flavorful. The chef usually engages the group and does funny and interesting tricks, however this time our chef was silent. I would recommend it, however hopefully they get a different chef.

Ugh. What an awful experience! We had a lackluster "chef" who could barely hold his utensils. In my reservation, and when we arrived, I explained we were celebrating TWO birthdays in our party of 6. Every table around us received a piece of cake and a loud rendition of "Happy Birthday". My boys kept asking if they were going to get a Happy Birthday, too. We sat and waited, and waited, and waited. Our waitress never came by, so I finally had to ask the hostess to bring out something. Oh, and the food is mediocre at best. Everything tastes the same and is bland.

This place is sad. I have been coming here since was a kid and it looks like it. The flat tops are all shot out. The carpet is beat. It is in desperate need of a make over. The staff lack any charm or charisma. I do not plan on going back any time soon unless my dad takes the family for birthday like he used to when I was a kid.

Our meals were prepared perfectly, which included shrimp, chicken, filet and lobster.
My only complaint is the bland vegetables that are cooked with the meals. They've been using the same vegetables for as long as i can remember. Maybe mix it up a bit with green beans, bok choy, etc. Overall, a very good dining experience.
