This was a very popular restaurant for the lunch crowd. Since closed. Too bad. A lot of vacant storefronts across from the Convention Center. Must be really rough making a successful business there. Across the street, Einstein Bagels closed too, as well as, DeepWood Restaurant down the block from JSH.

We had fond memories of dining here a couple years ago, but this visit was disappointing. The waitor was freaked out and rushing so much he was literally flinging things at us. The chef was calmer, but didn't do any of the entertaining knife work or special fire things one usually gets at this sort of restaurant. The soup was... More

I have been coming to Japanese Steakhouse for over 30 years for every family birthday. We started coming before they were at this location, so obviously one of my favorite places to dine. My children have grown up having all their birthdays here as well. We booked in advance for a very large group asking that we have two tables... More

Put soy sauce on the lobster, soup was flavorless, salad was obviously not fresh, no ginger salad dressing, and no yum yum sauce. Overall I would not go again. Benihana is about 1000x better.

They offer a large menu and it is prepared on the grill in front of you. The chefs are very entertaining while they cook your dish with juggling knives. Great place to eat

I visited the restaurant for lunch today, which I only have 45 minutes to enjoy, I was seated at a table at approximately 12:18 pm. I waited over 20 minutes for the chef who never arrived! I requested the bill, for the salad and drink I was served, and was informed by the server that because they were so busy... More

First visit to this Japanese Steak House will be my last. I've been to many other Japanese Steak House restaurants and this is the worst one I've ever been to. The service was good, but the food wasn't. I ordered the hibachi chicken and shrimp. They did not serve soup as I have received at others and the dressing on... More

Back in the 70's, while travelling for a living, I discovered hibachi style cooking and a particular chain of Japanese Steakhouses of which I have dined in all over the U.S. and Canada. However, right here in my home state of Ohio--in Columbus--is quite possibly the BEST hibachi Steakhouse, "The Japanese Steakhouse", in the short North across High Street from... More

One of many trips here. Every meal has been great and very entertaining. Get the scallops and have them put the sauce on the side. Best way to have it.

The dishes were good, but I'm not a big fan of Japanese Steak houses. It wasn't my first choice but I was with a group. The service was fine. The chef was OK but not very entertaining or enthusiastic. If you've never been at a Japanese steak house, you sit around a grill and have your food prepared before you.... More
