Fantastic food and experience!.
We LOVE coming to eat here. The food is spectacular. We have gone here countless times and have never ever been dissapointed. Typically when my husband, daughter and I go out to eat there, we almost always spend almost $100. That includes the salad, soup and steak entree. The owner is such a sweetie, she always comes over to say hello and plays with the kids. It is longer than your average out to dinner meal, just like any japanese steakhouse. My husband and I have visited many of these types of restaurants in various cities, and this one by far has been our favorite.
Our daughter says, "can we go eat at the fire restaurant!?" I highly recommend it. It is classy and a fun time.
Ugh! A fly in the lemonade!. This is tough. Went on New Years Eve with high expectations. Had made our res a week proir & get there &they haven't got it. Told us they'd get the manager. We waited 20 mins for her without her or any employee letting us know it would be that long. Then while having our drink order taken, our waiter (also the bartender) became irate with me because I asked my options other than Coke. I wasn't quick enough for him so he says,"I'll bring you water," but I didn't want or ask for water so I said, "I don't want water." he ignored me so I said it again, he'd moved on to my friend, & then he snaps at me & says, "I heard you," very obviously irate. Our part of 6 were all taken back by how rude he was. From then on, he was just totally uninterested in giving us good service. Loved our chef. He was very professional & good & entertaining. When my friend discovered the dead fly in her lemonade, the chef had to ask twice for someone to get rid of the drink after she was ignored. Sadly, the best they offered her was the drink for free. We don't like paying $35.00 for a plate & then being treated so poorly. We'll never go back there again. The food was no better than what you'd get at Lone Star or Outback & the service was absolutely horrid. Benihana is much, much better & I totally regret taking our friends there.
Delicious Sushi!. Amazing, fresh and flavorful sushi. We have been here 4 times and have never been disappointed. They always have great sushi specials and great drinks. They cook sea scallops perfectly...I love scallops and have a hard time finding a restaurant that does not "rubberize" them during the cooking process. Hanabi gets it right. Yum! I can't wait to go back!
I love sushi!. This place is great. I really do love sushi and sitting at the bar is the way to go. These guys really know their stuff and they take care of you. If you need a fix these guys are it!!!
YUMMMMMMM and fabulous service!. Absolutely love Hanabi and have turned it into a regular hangout for great sushi and drinks. The service is great the atmosphere is wonderful and pleasant. I have not yet tried sitting at a hibachi table but have sampled a few hibachi dinners and the food has always been wonderful. The service is great from all the wait staff but Jannetta is definitely a star! The owner has always welcomed us and been extremely generous! This is definitely one of our favorite hangouts and we often bring our friends to try it. So far everyone that we brought to Hanabi has love it! It is very clear from my experience at Hanabi that excellence is what they strive for and achieve!
The worst place to work and eat!. They are hiring underage students in the new forestville,md location and working them all day without a break. They are not being trained properly and then fired after 3days of training if they make one mistake. They're serving drinks to the underage employees and they're not washing their hands before they prepare the food. Looks good on the outside but its literally hell on the inside. I would not ever eat there and I will never allow one of my relatives to work there again. Health code and civil rights violations......check it out!!!!!
yummy and fun for the kids. our kids had never been to a japanese grill before so we looked for one in Denver. We don't live there so it was hard and took our chances with the reviews on citysearch. Being as we went early we didn't think we would need a reservation, not thinking they would have to have a grill person ready. I would now recommend anyone have a reservation regardless of what time it is. It was fun, the service was good, and the food was great!
So Much Fun. My daughter's 15th birthday was a couple of fridays ago and we came here for the first time. We unfortunately did not make reservations and had to wait maybe 30 minutes for a table. But it was well worth the wait. The food was very good and we had a great chef. I can't quite remember his name, but our server's name was Brian and we had a lot of fun with him as well. Awesome service and awesome food!
great sushi. my girlfriend and i went in a few days ago for the first time and had a fantastic experience. we orded a submarine roll (reccommended by our waiter), philly roll, and unagi roll. everything tasted great! this place really exceeded our expectations and we'll be back real soon
awesome awesome awesome!. My family and I went this past tuesday for the habachi grill. We did not have reservations, but because it was a weekday we only had to wait about 5 minutes (which isn't bad at all). For dinner, I ordered grilled salmon with ginger soy sauce and my husband had a couple of sushi rolls. The kids ordered terriyaki chicken off their menus and the portion was great, along with some ice cream for them at the end. Everything tasted great! The staff was very friendly and we were more than satisfied with our overall experience. It was definitely a great place to accomodate those who (like me) don't really go for the foreign food and (my worldy husband) who loves it all . Raw fish and exotic flavors just aren't my thing, so I guess you could say I'm a very "meat & potatoes" type of gal. My motto though, is you have to keep an open mind with these things and sometimes the unfamilar can be worth while. Our server was very helpful with suggestions and my dinner for sure exceeded my intial expectations. Even my picky children were happy! I reccommend this place to anyone!! We will definitely be back soon...
