Went there the other evening and had a great chef to prepare our food for us. Everything was excellent and service was very good. I recommend the Hibachi grill for the show. I did however notice that our chef seemed to be better than others working other tables but they were not bad, just seemed not as experienced.

We chose to eat early (4pm) to avoid crowds at Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, and our dinner experience was not only a meal, but also was a show of cooking talent by our personal chef who prepared our food on a hibachi stove right in front of us. We were joined by a family of 6 adults and... More

We go here once in a while. Yes, it's largely targeting the tourists trade and that's OK with us. It provides for good conversation and offers a chance for locals to brag about Williamsburg and it's restaurants. If you live here you know we have some great places to eat. Kyoto never fails to satisfy. There's a reason Kyoto has... More

My fiance and I are always eyeing the beautiful pagoda architecture of the Kyoto of Williamsburg. We stopped in shortly after it opened on a Sunday afternoon. We were promptly and politely greeted by a hostess in a kimono. We noticed most of the patrons went inside the sushi bar, but we ordered hibachi. I ordered a California roll, which... More

This place was not what we expected. The waitress maintained a poor attitude the entire time. The food was not what you'd expect from a Japanese restaurant. We had to endure the waitress huffing & puffing the entire time towards us when asked for help. Just BAD service!

have been to 100s of these Japanese steak houses and the only thing I'm usually hoping and expecting to be different is the show ... I was very excited while waiting for our table as some of the other chef's were really turning it up ... so when it was our turn to sit down needless to say I was... More

We went here because our timeshare recommended it. The chef was funny and very interactive. The food especially the filet mignon was out of this WORLD!. I don't know what people who gave bad review were talking about. I go to Japanese steakhouses all the time and this was great. The food was good and I had a great time!!!!

When the placed the plastic plates in front of us we knew right away this place was not going to be up to par. Needs renovations as the place has a funky smell to it. (SMELLS OLD). Not worth the price....

The soup and salad were great. The $2.50 extra for fried rice is a joke. We got the steak and shrimp and steak and chicken combos. The steak had a wild/gamey flavor. Shrimp and chicken were much better. I have visited many of these types of restaurants over the years and this was in the bottom for food taste. The... More

This restaurant was very clean, entertaining and the meal was very good. We have only eaten at Sakura in the past, This Japanese restaurant puts the others to shame.
