The dining experience started with gruffy and rude reception. No greetings and no smiles. The host and hostess were probably overworked, undertrained and underpaid, but still excuses can go only so far. Business is too good as the surrounding restaurants (Italian, Thai, Armenian, Seafood, Indian) had only a tiny fraction of Edo-ya's business - on a Friday night. Edo-ya is like a black hole. Some fine dishes on the menu - paper wrapped Salmon or Halibut with Scallop Tsutsumiyaki. Lobster with Filet Mignon. New York Steak, Filet Mignon, etc. - all Japanese proportion, that is, tiny. Choice of sashimi, tempura, chicken wings with dinner. Salad and soup also included. Medium rare filet mignon came out medium. Halibut and Scallop were overcooked. Food was at best average, but worse: soup and appetizer dumped on table while salad was still being consumed. Cold tempura and warm fried chicken wings were certainly not appetizing. In addition, the chicken wings were dry - any hole in the wall Chinese place could have done it better. Dishes are cleared away with the obvious intent of hurrying the customers out. It is a Friday night, but enough is enough. One of the worse dining experiences anywhere. Finally, inspite of this review, the place is better than this - just pick a slow night, like Monday nights.
Pros: Acceptable Japanes Food
Cons: Unacceptable service
