Nakama Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar Ratings and Reviews
Worse nakama experience I ever had. I will never return to this restaurant. The hosts were all chatting when we arrived, they did not greet us until I finally spoke up and told them I had a reservation. We were not ask which seating did we prefer, they just took us to a table with a group and we wanted to seat at a regular table. After explaining to the hostess, that we did not want to seat there and preferred to sit a regular table for two. They finally sit us where we wanted then it's a waiter forever to come to our table. When he finally arrives he has the biggest attitude. He asked us if we wanted something to drink and ask us was there anything else. I told him we needed food menus because we weren't given any. He returns with our waters and one food menu knowing we needed two. After seeing how rude he was going to be if we decided to just leave. I don't trust a impolite, unprofessional, and aggressive waiter!
The food was good. Our hibachi chef was friendly and engaging. He made it a fun experience. Tipped him well. Our waiter was just ok. Not attentive to our drinks. 18% gratuity added in for our party of 6. The service was not worth 18% especially after directly tipping our chef. Overall good experience for those celebrating their birthdays.
Overall experience was good..went there to celebrate birthday.. host and waiter forgot to bring dessert. After check was paid for host laugh like it was a joke and says oh i forgot ur dessert. No comp sorry or anything...that was rude and unexpected considering the place was nowhere near busy. ...other than that i had an awsome time...Note to self do not go here for birthday..
The front desk staff needs training.
They didn't check us in on OpenTable, so I was notified we were a no-show, while sitting in the restaurant. I went to the front desk to ask about this, and got tons of excuses and then was told sorry, can't change it after your arrival time, too bad. Finally, the manager came up, logged on, and changed our status to arrived in about 5 seconds. A simple, "let me ask" from any of the front staff would have been the right thing to say.
Good was fair. Not bad, not great.
We went there for my son's 16 th Birthday. It was his choice as he was there a few weeks ago for a friends Biethday and raved about it. Both times, his food allergies were well attended to by both the server and the chef. He had no issues and loved his meal!
Started at the bar area in order to finish watching the pens game against the senators had the lemongrass and coconut saki of which I would strongly recommend especially for the warmer weather. The server escorted us to the habocki table where we stayed with sushi. Recommend the soft shell crab and the Dragon roll. We ordered the Kobe steak and Suzanne mixed grill both which were fantastic. The chef recommended not cutting up the steak or removing the fat until near done and he was spot on. We had a really fun and knowledgeable chef so this was just a terrific time overall
Too noisy. Dinner is far more expensive than lunch and they will stack meals to try and get the most money....for example an add on piece of chicken is $8 But an upgrade from strip steak to filet is $9.99. That said it's cheaper to get a filet and add chicken than it is to get the combo with strip steak and chicken and upgrade to a filet. Not consumer friendly on that front.
Ive only been there once and it was for a date but overall I was pleased. It was easy to hold down a conversation which I would maybe hold off on the hibachi thing if you're intentionstill are getting to know someone. It's not cheap but it's also not extremely expensive.
I've been to nakama before about a year ago. It was ok. My lady friend wanted to go so I made a reservation. Unfortunately it was on saint party's parade day. So I couldn't even get in with my reservation. So I guess that's my fault for thinking I could go to the south side on such a day. So I guess it's the apps fault or nakama itself for allowing me to make a reservation on this day. Plus side. I didn't waste any money on weak drinks and small portions.
I ate at Nakama with a group of friends. The cook was entertaining but the food was just okay. The mushroom soup was very salty and had a lot pepper. The Sesame Chicken was overcooked and didn't have much flavor. Disappointing for me but others enjoyed the setting.
