Japanese-style restaurant with hibaci presentation of food cooked at the table. The presentation is noisy and the tables are shared, making conversation difficult. You order the main dish and a number of courses come with it. The portions are generous except for the main dish you order. The service is attentive and the staff is friendly and helpful. When you drive in, it looks like you have to valet park but there is self parking around the side and in back.

We go for the food, but the kids go for the show [and the food]! The waiting can be quite long on the weekends but it’s worth it. We go to the bar area and have some Sushi Rolls and order something to drink, to wait for the buzzer to sound. The portions are large, so sharing is a good option. We had the Land & Sea (Scallops and Filet), Hibachi Chicken Rice (delicious) and also ordered the Splash & Meadow (Steak & Shrimps). A must is their Onion Soup (very light) with mushrooms and their salad is awesome! If you like warm Sake... go for it. Really good for the price, too!

Usually love Samurai and try to visit during lunch on weekdays because of the cost. I had not visited in a while but this Saturday I went with my daughter and was astonished at the weekend prices. While the food was delicious, as always, Samurai shouldn't charge extra to get fried rice instead of white. For these prices, it should be included. Maybe that's why the place was more than half empty. Won't be visiting again on a weekend. Too expensive.
