Osaka Japanese Sushi and Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

Went for a triple birthday celebration with 11 people and it was perfect. Great place to go as a large group due to Habachi seating and easy to make reservations for large groups as well without having to do it super far in advance. Had a bar and karaoke going on downstairs which we went to after for an added bonus.

This place is awsome. They put on a great show. I made a reservation for four and it showed only two guest. the hostess was fast and got us seated under five minutes on a busy Saturday night. My dad has a server allergy to shrimp and the waiter made sure to bring his food from the back of kitchen quickly. We stayed for karaoke and it started off quiet but livend up after a while. it turned into a dance party.

Wonderful! My family and I really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was wonderful. They even lit my moms birthday and brought it out singing happy birthday along with us!! Absolutely loved our chef, he was very entertaining!!!

The food was good. The service was terrible. Three of us were dining and when two of the entrees were brought out we were told that the third would be out shortly. After 15 minutes of waiting we could not even get the wait staff's attention because they were avoiding our table at all costs. After 5 more minutes we went up to the hostess to ask where our food was and we were told it would be out shortly. Thirty minutes later the third entree came out with a quick apology and we were told we would not be charged for this dinner. Too little too late. We will never go back.

I went to Osaka to celebrate 2 birthdays (mine and my friend's) with a group of 12 people. Not only was the cooking entertaining and fun (as any good hibachi normally is), they gave me and my friend's meal to us on the house because they found out why we were there! It was totally unexpected and an amazing customer service move, as we will definitely be returning to celebrate other birthdays.

We were a group of five. We sat at the hibachi table. Only 3 of us ordered Hibachi, and the rest ordered Sushi. Food was delicious, great atmosphere, great drinks.
I then told the waiter it was my mom's birthday in hope to get a small cake with a candle. They brought this ice cream treat with a candle. Not only did they not charge me for that dessert, but also took off the bill my mom's Hibachi meal. Totally unexpected.
Over all - loved the place and will definitely be back.

I would suggest Isaka to a group interested in Teppenyaki Table dining. The food was a 3.5 re: taste and the serving was quite large. Fun and engaging for kids. Somewhat expensive for plain food. But... exactly as expected ! Did not have sushi but it looked beautiful.

Sushi was great - the hibachi scallops were not so great - like the vegetables were made way in advance and tired. Shrimp tempura appetizer was delicious, but seems to have shrunk over time to just two shrimp and a few veggies. Have been many times - and never so loud in the bar/dining area -- must have been a huge party downstairs making a lot of noise but not escapable by other patrons.

One year ago went to Osaka and my friend had a table booked in the bar downstairs for her birthday. I tried to do the same however when we get there we had no reservation. They said that downstairs if first come basis. On the phone they garanteed me that we would get a table in the downstairs bar. It was a surprise party and the birthday person and guests had to hang in the bar with no table until I managed to get the tables together. It ruined my party mood as I called them twice to confirm.

The food was amazing but the service was horrible !! The male waiter we had seemed like he didn't want to be there at all, and was poking his nose half the time. We had to wait 30 minutes just for water to the point where I got so fed up , I got up to get the water for my table and grabbed utensils as well.

Hands-down the BEST Hibachi food I've ever had! We were there to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. The ambience and decor is very clean/modern. Four of us (party of 5) ordered the Osaka Supreme, which brings chicken, filet mignon, scallop, shrimp and lobster. The food was so well-seasoned and cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable. Very nice and attentive staff. They brought out a dessert for my brother-in-law and his meal was on-the-house, and we didn't even ask for it. We were blown away. Definitely come here, you won't regret it!
TERRIBLE experience. First of all, the ...
TERRIBLE experience. First of all, the server took my ID to be checked by a manager and didn't bring it back for about 15 minutes...way after someone else brought the drinks. When I got it back my ID was bent in half and is now about to crack. I am going to have to get a new ID and there was absolutely no acknowledgment or explanation of what happened. The service took forever. We waited 40 minutes for dessert. We never got a dessert menu and the server couldn't remember all the options but we didn't want to wait another 40 minutes so we just ordered one of the 3 things she could remember. There was also no acknowledgment of the birthday even though it was written on the reservation. It was so disappointing.

Osaka was great! I have read some mixed reviews involving rude staff or lackluster performances. The only thing I can say is that,on the night we dined, there were some very very immature aggressive patrons who were yelling and ordering the chef around even threatening to not tip. All I can say is- if you're rude like that ANYWHERE, you should expect subpar service. Unbelievable! I thought our chef was terrific, fun and the whole experience was great. The food was great and the whole experience was worth it! Would definitely go back again. I would imagine these horribly behaving patrons would it be allowed back.
I went to Osaka to celebrate my birthday with about 16 of my friends. I made the reservation a couple weeks in advance and everyone was looking forward to the outing, the hibachi experience and being together. However when we sat down everything was extremely rushed, the performance was below average and within about 10 minutes or less it was over. My salmon was under cooked and everyone was looking forward to the show and there wasn't. It was very disappointing. I have gone to Osaka before and had a great experience but this time was less than satisfactory and I don't think i'll be going back.
