Great Sushi; Why worry about the rest 2/21/2009

sbdavi Provided by Partner
The specialty of this restaurant is obviously sushi. The rest is just a show; that probably pays the bills. I have had the pleasure of eating at this establishment many times and while I do agree that the wait staff needs some training, it doesn't take away the sole of the restaurant which is the sushi bar. At which you are typically served by the proprietor himself. The sushi is excellent (portions seem too large; but I am obviously accustomed to the rampant 'Chinese' knock off sushi that is everywhere in GA.) Not to say that excellent sushi can't be had by Chinese chefs, but it seems the Asian community believes we will all pay out the nose for sliced up raw fish if the guy preparing it looks Asian (and this is too true!). In my experience (at the sushi bar) the food is extremely well prepared, with obvious attention to detail. Though a little on the pricey side 'itsumo takai da', I consider it a treat. As for the theatrical grill section, my family has yet to be disappointed with a meal here; though I always wish I were sitting at the sushi bar. If you want really good sushi (comparative locally; from my experience of course, never been to Japan myself!). You can't go wrong, if you are looking for a family restaurant with a chef performing cheap tricks, there are a thousand in the area and they might be cheaper for the exact same food. Demo, it's worth the trip even if you are sampling the sushi..... Think about it.. Pros: Excellent sushi, incredible portions Cons: Regular dining area relatively typically. Then again the whole style was created for US more

Best Sushi I've ever had 10/29/2008

Ok, this is a review based solely on the sushi bar. There are some drawbacks to this place, but with that being said this is the best sushi I have ever had. Drawbacks depending on the night your wait could be over an hour, or you could just sit right down. If you are a first time visitor, there is no real clear way in how to order, but ask the chef when he looks at you, and you've got the idea. The first time I came to this place, within the first few minutes I swore I was never coming back, however after having some of his creations I had now found my new favorite rest. The customer service can be a challenge, but once you get to sit at the sushi bar it is well worth it. Pros: Amazing sushi Cons: Waitstaff more

Short Staffed and sushi bar closed most of the time 6/25/2008

Mt. Fuji used to be GREAT. I love the sushi there. However, over the last couple of years, they have had a difficult time keeping grill-chefs. I can only assume it is due to low pay. It's become such a problem that the sushi chef (Don) has had to man the habachi grills himself. As a result, wait times have increased dramatically and the sushi bar is closed most of the time. What a shame; it used to be a great restaurant with great service. Don, you should offer higher pay to the habachi chefs; you're loosing too much money and customers aren't returning. PS. I have noticed on occasion that the pest control must have been canceled as well, if you know what I mean. Pros: Great sushi, WHEN the bar is open. Cons: Way under staffed. more

Have been to Mt Fuji several times over the last 12 years for birthdays, special occassions, etc. Took some business associates on June 9, 2008 for dinner. Was sitting at the grill waiting for the chef, the lady had already turned on the grill to allow it to heat up. Received the drinks and was just enjoying the time when all of a sudden out from the grill come a family of you know what, first 2 of them came out and were quickly brushed off to the floor. Then when another 4 came out I demanded we be moved to another table. Then couldn't eat afterwards. I will not go back again.(this site would not allow me to use the word for what kind of you know what it was, but you can probably guess) Pros: no wait (now I know why) Cons: creepy crawly things more

I go to Mt. Fuji every year for my birthday and many times throughout the year. I have had great service every time I've been. The food is delicious, the people are always friendly and the chefs always put on a fun and funny show. I have recommended this restaurant to many people and they have all had the same enjoyable experience as I have. I will continue to recommend Mt. Fuji to friends. more

Worst Service Ever!!! 2/18/2008

MariettaGal Provided by Partner
We made reservations at Mt. Fuji for a party of 11 - it was a family dinner for my daughter's 5th Birthday. We arrived 10 minutes early and 1 hour later we still had not been seated. After 30 minutes we questioned the hostess about what was taking so long and she replied gruffly "I'm doing the best I can." After another 15 minutes I asked again how much longer it would be, that we have young children to feed and we had made reservations specifically to avoid waiting. The hostess was very SNOTTY and said there are a lot of people waiting and she should have our table ready shortly. Exhausted with her poor attitude and lack of professionalism, I asked to speak with the manager. Her reply to that request was "She's busy." I asked again to see the manager and the hostess said she would be out when she had time. I was very disappointed to learn that this Mt. Fuji place has a serious lack of respect for reservations, paying customers, large parties, and special events. I WILL NEVER SPEND MY MONEY THERE AGAIN! We left and went up the street to Marietta Diner. With no reservation we were seated in 15 minutes - and there was a line out the door!! We were given cocktails on the house for our wait, and when the manager heard about our HORRIBLE experience at Mt. Fuji, he treated us to 2 free deserts. We also found out that the table sitting right next to us had also been at Mt. Fuji and had left after 2 HOURS of waiting for a table!!!! DON'T GO TO MT. FUJI IF YOU WANT GOOD SERVICE - YOU WON'T GET IT THERE!!!!! Cons: WORST HOSTESS, WORST MANAGER, WORST SERVICE EVER!! more

The worst customer service that I know of! Not good food either. 2/15/2008

My girlfriend and I had 7 PM reservations on Valentines Day. I had never been to Mt Fuji, but at the recommendations of a co-worker I decided to give them a try. I normally eat at Taki in Hiram and should have stuck with what I know is good. Having to wait 45 minutes to be seated was the first issue that started us downhill on this train wreck of a meal. After finally being seated and given our drinks, the orders were taken. The nice couple next to us was rudely told that Sushi was taking 45 minutes and he couldn't order any. While waiting for the chef, the manager refilled all drinks except for mine. When she came back around, I asked if she could refill my drink and was given a lecture that I had already had a refill and that you don't get 5 refills like other places. Needless to say, I correct her and she brought me a refill. Shortly after our chef arrived, the other grill opposite was seated. Our chef managed to not have working lighter for the volcano, dropped the spatula on the floor for which he only wiped it off, and my girlfriends chicken was given to the stranger next to her. The funny part is that the chef motioned for them to swap plates! The man to my left was irate when midway through our meal, the table across from us had Sushi deliver to them. All in all, it was a memorable experience but not for the right reasons. Pros: Convenient location in Marietta Cons: Food and Customer Service. The cornerstones of a good restaurant. more

Horrible Customer Care 2/9/2008

barguide Provided by Partner
Had Birthday reservations for 7pm. They sat us on time. Service was very slow and rude. We sat there with our drinks for over an hour without any food. We then had to track down the manager. Continued to sit for another hour and a half. We would have left but the birthday party was to big. We did not get a cook until 9:45pm. Bills came out and the manager charged us for the whole meal. Manager said he would only take off the Soda pop and water. Manager was very rude. Have never been treated so wrong by a place on someone's birthday. Manager continued to tell us that " Oh well you poeple ate" . I will never go back there and I recommend that No one goes there again. NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE TREATED THAT WAY ON THERE BIRTHDAY!!!! Pros: Seated promptly Cons: Horrible Customer Care, Over priced food, Horrible for birthdays more

I have been there several times now and have never had a bad expirience. The service has been great and friendly. The sushi is the best i have found in GA since i move from California. If they are busy, be patient, it is worth the wait. Pros: great food Cons: none more

Bad Experience 5/17/2007

ugark Provided by Partner
Food was less than average quality and pricey for what you get. Veggies were quite bland, steamed rice was cold, and the meats were not cooked to the way in which they were ordered. If you enjoy the various Japanese sauces, too, those were VERY bad. The seafood sauce was practically ketchup, teriyaki was not sweet at all and the ginger was just plain 'ol nasty. The staff also had a condescending attitude with our party of 20. I would not recommend this place to anybody that wants excellent Japanese food hibachi style. For future reference, drive a little further and drive up to Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock, to Kani House. Pros: Parking Cons: Service and Food Quality and Price more

Best Food Ever! Great Service! 2/21/2007

mcgordon99 Provided by Partner
Mt. Fugi has the best food of any other Japanese restaurant in the Atlanta Area. We visit Mt. Fugi every chance we get; birthday's, anniversaries and just because we want some good food. The staff is very friendly and overly excited to make sure that you are pleased with your dining experience. They do get a little crowded at times, but obviously that is because they have the best Japanese and Sushi in Atlanta and not everyone is on there ?A? game all the time. Pros: Best food in Atlanta Cons: too many poeple know about it, so they get crowded on weekends and around the holidays more

Worst Experience EVER! 2/20/2007

feedingfrenzy05 Provided by Partner
We will never, ever go to Mt. Fugi's again. Most disrespectful service known to customers. We had made reservations, which were not honored, we were ignored, in essence lied to about the state of their restaurant on the evening we attempted to dine there. It was so outrageous, it is unbelievable they can treat customers the way EVERY customer was treated in their restaurant that evening. We arrived about 10 min prior to our reservation, totally ignored by the hostess (the Saturday before Christmas '06), and not one person behind the bar working...for HOURS. We waited approxiamately one hour and 15 minutes before we finally left . There was another full table that had been waiting nearly TWO HOURS and they only had water served and the wait staff never came back to take their dinner orders! The Dad in that group was ticked off to say the least. We attempted to talk to anyone we could find that was working and none of them could barely speak English. We had a party of 10 with 3 small children and so having them wait that long was insane. My husband walked inside the kitchen to find someone working! What we determined is that they did not have enough people working and for some dumb reason, could not be honest with the folks walking in the door that there were problems with the lack of staff. No kidding, I could've gone behind the bar and served drinks for over an hour and not one person *working* there would've known. INSANE! This is supposed to be a nice restaurant, right?!! We've told everyone we know about their horrible service and to never patronize them again. We ended up going down the road to a fantastic Italian restaurant called Scalini's (great food, prompt and courteous staff). Pros: That is pretty close to a fantastic Italian restaurant Scalini's! Cons: Everything! Horrible restaurant with no service and no staff more

Worst Experience Ever!! Caution!! 2/18/2007

This was the most awful experience of my dining out life. I can't possibly understand how this retaurant is still in existence based on our horrible treatment from the incompetent staff. After making a reservation we still waited, without being acknowleged, for over 20 minutes. After finally being seated at a hibachi table, we weren't even able to order a sushi appetizer after our server finally acknolweded us and told us, "no sushi, 1 hour wait for sushi." We then sat at our table another 20 minutes with no soup or salad...no hibachi chef yet in sight. Finally another man at our table demaded from the server to know when we would get our chef, she finally answered that there wasn't one available and it would be another 30 minutes. We all got up and left, feeling decieved, angered, and starving. Not to mention the food is very pricey and fried rice, for hibachi, cost $2.50 extra! more

This place is terrible. The food was average but the business was completely untruthful. We split an entree and they charged us an extra $10 just to split the entree and did not disclose it up front. So we ended up having to speak with the management just to get the 10 taken off. Even when we voiced our concern over the charge, management was unwilling to admit that it was a mistake. Also, they do not disclose that they charge you for refills but they keep coming to the table asking you "Do you want a refill?" Never saying anything about a charge. None of this is disclosed in the menu either. A really bad experience. Will never go back. Pros: none Cons: unethical business practices, average food that is overpriced more
