Tomo Hibachi & Sushi Restaurant and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
We were there for NYE and it wasn’t even busy. It took a half hour to get our first drink and 2 and a half hours total and that is extremely slow for Hibachi. We had a party we paid to be at that started at 9:30 and didn’t get there until 10:30. Food was very good but the service was unapologetically slow with many empty tables.
The food was terrible!! But, I'm not sure if it was the quality of food i think it didn't taste right because it wasn't cooked right. I think the owner had to step in as chef because his other chef walked out!! I don't think he ever cooks!! His saving grace the entertainment. He was the funniest, best, entertaining hibachi chef I have ever experienced and that is the only thing that made up the experience. We have been to a lot of hibachi restaurants and this restaurant was by far the worst. Lots of things were off or irregular. It took him a very long time!! Our reservation was for 6pm and we didn't get to leave until 830pm. Making us 30 min late for Cavs game!! It took so long because he only cooked one item at a time. Rice didn't taste right, we had to ask for yum yum sauce and by the time we got our other food to eat altogether rice was cold. Chicken, steak all improperly cooked could not even eat. I'm use to seeing chef cook a couple diff meats at a time so it goes faster. This chef didn't do that so when our whole table got a diff kind of meat it seemed it took forever!! Thus allowing for food to not be cooked properly and cold. We were there with a party of 6. Nobody could eat their whole meal and a lot of us were still hungry or sick afterwards. The soup and salad was good at least. Then, we got our bills it was so expensive and we didn't even enjoy our meal!! $150 for 2 people we could have went to a nice steak restaurant for that!! So that made it much more worse that it was so expensive and not even good. That's one expensive soup and salad. Everyone I was with hated the food and none of us will ever be back!! Thank God the entertainment was the best we have ever seen or we would have all gotten up and left. I feel bad his chef quit on him right before we got there. Hopefully the future is brighter for this place and the quality of food/chefs improves!! They have to get it together or this place isn't going to last.
Our server was so quiet and passive. He seemed to be very unsure of himself. Maybe he was new. He didn't ask how we were doing, or if we needed anything. We had to ask him to removed used plates, fill/refill drinks, bring ice for Luke warm cocktail, etc. The bartender didn't put ice in the cocktail I ordered so it was warm and didnt taste great. I also wondered if the bartender was new. I've been to several hibachi restaurants and this was my least favorite. The place was almost empty on a Saturday night when the Cavs were playing in town, which made me wonder. The table felt cramped...seats were too close to side of the bar. Not impressed.
The waiter was very friendly and helpful, and tried his best to keep us placated during the 2 hour wait before our salads and appetizers came out. The restaurant was nearly empty, so there's no explanation why it took so long. Once the food finally came out, there was a long hair in my food.
Overall a horrible experience.
We waited for 30 minutes to see our server to place our drink order, and another 45 to order our food. My "vegetable hibachi" consisted of approximately half a cup of vegetables. It was supposed to come with fried rice, but it came with white. When I asked the server, she said she would ask the chef. After we were finished eating and had already paid the check, the waitress brought my fried rice. I would not return to this place.
Without a doubt one of the best places i have ever had the pleasure of eating at. The owners were there and highly personable and generous. My group and i enjoyed several cocktails with them all night, sharing stories, and enjoying plenty of laughter. A great hard working couple.
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!
