Kyoto Palace Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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 had such a great time celebrating my son's birthday... His favorite place.. he has celebrated is birthday for several several years now . Never wants to go anywhere else. And that is fine was us.. We love it too. And our chef was Awesome !

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 palace is a great place. You go and get your food cooked in front of you with a little show. It is great because kids love it and the food tastes great. Price is somewhat expensive, but it is worth it for those special occasions.

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.

The day after the wedding I had a family dinner with the newlywed couple and my family. We had eleven in the group and four of them were children , ages two to nine. The chief was outstanding, keeping the attention of the children and making them laugh. The waitress also was helpful . She helped us take agroup picture. I will return again and also tell my friends.

We were celebrating my son's 27th birthday. We wanted to do something different. He had been here n said let try. Food portion small but good. My order was missing rice. We eventually got it. We has my sister who was handicapped n slow to eat. I felt rush to leave.

Showed up early to enjoy a cocktail. Table was ready 30 minutes early. Said I wanted to enjoy a drink waiter said well it's ready now. No big deal except I was charged full price on the drinks where they were happy hour prices in the bar. Not right.

The restaurant was very noisy, the decor looked like it needed to be cleaned or updated. It looked like there was some grease residue covering the walls making the Asian decor dingy. We thought the fan above our table was not pulling out the smoke so there was smoke from the cooking at our side of the table. I think the food is a bit overpriced but freshly cooked obviously. I didn't think my cocktail was worth $12.
The wait staff was really attentive, they were on top of our order even though our table was full.

Because of they style of cooking at the table, there is a fast paced feel which can detract from having a slow relaxing dinner. I can bet very load and difficult to have simple conversation. The restaurant definitely serves the purpose of an energetic fun place to go that other don't offer.

You come for the experience at these types of specialty restaurants. Kyoto Palace has a nice ambiance. Service is pretty good. There are a lot of food combinations to choose from, but this is no fine dining experience. Food is good, but not excellent. It's a fun experience to have and great for special celebrations. It should be noted that, when full, the restaurant is LOUD. You'll definitely need to shout at your dining mates. All in all, a fun experience. We'll go back if someone requests it.

We went for my son's birthday, we waited a half an hour even though we had reservations. Our rice showed up after the table chef was finished. The food was very mediocre, nobody liked their food. The only good thing was the fried rice and the cocktails.
The wait staff were nice but not too prompt. Also, the interior of the restaurant is very run down and doesn't look clean. One of the walls on the East end of the restaurant was not a finished wall, but ply wood. That must be a code violation.
I don't think I'll be coming back.

The restaurant was VERY noisy, so don't expect to have a conversation with anyone but the person right next to you. Also, it really depends on what chef you get. Many of them were entertainers as well. Unfortunately, we had a a grumpy Russian chef who never smiled or engaged us at all. The food is good, but you pay for the performance element of the cooking process. This guy just went through the motions and looked like he'd rather be at the dentist than cooking for us. A big disappointment for my friend's 80th birthday. 😢

The host/hostess were great but the cook (Enrique) made us all feel like we were "bothering" him. He did NONE of the things that the other cooks were doing. He spun an egg and that was it! The food was ok but not work what we paid. The wait staff never came around to refill our drinks or check on anything. Our whole party was disappointed with the entire experience.

Came here for a birthday dinner. Reserved a table for 10 at 8 oclock at night. The restaurant had my whole party wait almost 40 minutes! Didn't get seated until almost 9pm didn't start eating until going on almost 945 since they do Cook the food right in front of you. Very disappointed in that since I did have a reservation. Nevertheless the food was good. Next time I go back maybe they'll haveit together

it was my sons bday and our chef did no clanking with the utensils or nor did he put on a show, i don't think he smiled once.
the food was okay i ordered medium rare filiet mignon and it was so raw i could not eat it. sorry i would have liked to rate higher but simple > our chef sucked!

We booked it for our anniversary dinner on Sat night. With advanced reservation, we got settled to our table that shared with other guests quick. The service is fair and efficient but the menu is a little confusion. We ordered a Kyoto Special ($43) and Seafood special ($40) but they messed up my Kyoto with something else ($26). The chef was boring, he is showing little enthusiasm or smile that you would expect from Japanese restaurants as this. He does not say/ ask much. The food is also fair and average,not much to say.
We don't think we will come back again though

I came to the restaurant for the first time this week was very skeptical but had a wonderful experience. Everyone had a great time they put on a wonderful show and the food is excellent I will definitely be going back.

We tried Kyoto after not having dined there for a very long time. Arrived early and were seated quickly and the staff were all very pleasant. However, the smell of grease and the lack of cleanliness were horrible. Sorry to say we won't be going back. It needs a complete overhaul from ceiling to carpet for cleaning.
