Tomo Hibachi & Sushi Restaurant and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
The sushi was fresh and was the best part of our meal. The hibachi was very bland, with no seasoning, and a very small portion of vegetables were given. Luckily we had a Groupon, as I would not pay full price for our meal. If we go back again, we will stick to only the sushi.
We went earlier then our reservation and it was no problem at all. We ended up being the only people eating there at the time and there were a few people at the bar. The chef was funny and entertaining. Our server made sure out drinks were filled constantly and the service was quick for this type of restaurant. I'm so happy I found this place and went here instead of other chain restaurants. Not to mention the food was amazing! Without a doubt we will be back next time we are in the area.
Great service and great cooks. The staff was pleasant and knowledgable. For the price they should include noodles as well as rice. The sushi selection was nice. We went on a friday and it wasn't crowded at all, the only draw back is going on the weekend, there is a club next door. We didn't mind the music, but some might.
I took my daughter there before going to a show at Playhouse Square. Gerald our waiter was fantastic and so was the hibachi chef (sadly I forgot his name). We were the only ones in there because of how early it was yet they still did the table cooking for my daughter. She loved it! Thanks guys!
The food was beyond bland. We ate in the restaurant with a Groupon. I am not sure if the discount was why the quality was so poor. My sons lamb still had a bone in it. The chicken was served luke warm with absolutely no flavor at all. This is hands down one my most disappointing dining experiences. The waitress tried extremely hard but it boiled down to a horrible kitchen staff. We will not be returning or recommending.
Took wife out for a date and was really pleased with the experience. Our chef was very entertaining and put on a good show while preparing our meals. Our server was outstanding providing us with background on the restaurant as well as his personal history as it relates to dining. Wonderful overall experience.
Great food you must definitely try the Cleveland Roll, even if you aren't a fan of sushi, the roll itself is deep fried and the sauces add an excellent touch. I ordered a side of shrimp fried rice not realizing it was $18.00.....yes, $18.00 for a cereal bowl-sized portion of shrimp fried rice that did not even gave your usual veggies and egg it's normally cooked with. The restaurant had a good ambience, great service, smooth wine, and when I visit Cleveland again I'll definitely make a stop here again.....but hold the overpriced rice please.
This was my 4th trip, although it has been a couple years since the last visit.
The Sushi has always been good, the Habachi has never been "wow" compared to competing Habachi style offerings. Overall we like the place.
This time the service tainted the experience. after being seated we ordered hot tea... that took 40 minutes to appear! The soup bowl was served 20% full (like it had spilled out), the waitress tried to pick out the cucumbers and tomatoes out and re-serve when my wife requested lettuce only... really!
The Habachi chef was entertaining, but lost his bearings and served the wrong food to several different people at the table... causing a "recook" for several folks!
They had a rough night!
I went with a group of friends who were coming back into town. It was a great way to have fun and have dinner. Hibachi is a very interactive and fun experience. The food was great, our service was great, the chef was energetic and entertaining. Overall it was a great experience.
We decided to go here before going to a theater show. It was a great choice!! Everyone is very friendly, the place is very clean. We did a hibachi, the chef was fun and made our experience exciting . I would highly recommend this restaurant, based on our experience. There was plenty of food, especially at the value price . Go try it for yourself.
The food was great but our hibachi chef did not interact with us at all. We had three small kids who wanted to see a show and nothing. In fact he barely said two words. They automatically charge a gratuity for hibachi which is fine when you get the show but all we did was watch him cook the food. We are from Pittsburgh and this will be my memory of this place forever. Very boring.
The food was good, in that it wasn't greasy. But there was no showmanship from our chef and the scallops and steak were overcooked. Another weird thing was he cooked and then plated each part of the dinner separately. First veggies, then rice then entrees. Usually they start the meats first and move to the side then work on veggies and rice and serve all together.
The restaurant needs to be updated. The entryway looked run down, and even our chairs and the table looked crummy. The music did not fit with the atmosphere, and our sushi was just ok. The rice did not seem fresh and the avocado was not good. I would not go back when there are numerous other sushi places to go to.
Great service, terrible fish.
This was my second visit; the last time the service was horrible (every part of my order was wrong) and the sushi was OK.
This time, the service was great and the fish was less than what I would expect at midnight from a chain grocery store.
I was the first dinner reservation of the evening and the only person in the restaurant. My waitress was attentive, but didn't lurk. When I had finished my appetizer and salad, I set the plates off to the side. A waiter who was on his way in to start his shift saw my plates and took them with him; awesome service.
The sushi was, however, garbage. For an appetizer I ordered tuna carpaccio- slices of raw tuna with scallions and some ponzu sauce. The chef actually used a torch to sear the tuna. From wikipedia- Carpaccio is a dish of raw meat or fish (such as beef, veal, venison, salmon or tuna), thinly sliced or pounded thin and served mainly as an appetizer. Why would you ruin sushi- grade tuna by torching it. I was speechless.
For dinner I ordered a sashimi platter- 18 pieces of fish. It was served on about a pound of shredded carrots (You couldn't find daikon?). 18 pieces of fish on a plate of orange clouds was not the most appealing visually. Every piece of fish had been frozen, some was still frozen (white tuna) when it was served to me. Each piece had that mushy, pasty feel of frozen and thawed fish.
The wasabi was more like green paste- no kick at all.
Oh, and they charged me $2.75 for a glass of iced tea. Really? I feel like i was mugged.
I have given you two chances. I doubt I would ever return.
We had reservation for 7:45pm. We arrived on time and the hostess was unsure if we could be seated for Hibachi (I called earlier that day to confirm that the reservation was for Hibachi). We were seated with two other couples, who had been waiting an hour and a half for their dining experience. Our Hibachi show did not begin until 8:30pm!!!! There was no excuse for this because the restaurant wasn't busy. The food was subpar, we got our veggies first then rice then protein, so our veggies sat and got cold while we waited for everything else. The other couples sitting with us had tickets for a show at 9pm, but were just leaving Tomo at 9 due to the ridiculous wait. And they had to pay full price for their food. If that was me, I wouldn't have paid. Don't waste your time or money. There's better Hibachi places out there.
The waiter was awesome, as well as the food, however we waited 1hr for the chef to come to the grill top to cook. Every time we asked why it was taking so long we were told because it was a holiday (NYE @ 6:30pm). that lost points in my book, it showed they cannot not handle a busy dinner hour and not enough staffing. The staff was great, Mgmt lacked in personality and sense of urgency.
