This is definitely an American version of a Japanese steakhouse. It's all flash and show and focused on appearances rather than quality. Like they think, if this at least LOOKS good then maybe the people won't notice the food is sub par. And it's not like I completely didn't like my food but I had expected better and didn't feel satisfied afterward. Plus the drinks and the food are overpriced to reflect, again, the appearance that it's a nice place and one should feel "exclusive" to be there, but that is really not at all the case. Skip this one - even Ron of Japan is a much better bet.
