Great Food Fun Atmosphere! – My husband and I have been going to Arigato's for many years. We are definately hooked on the goodie goodie sauce! I wish they would bottle it and sell it. I would buy it by the gallon! We have just started "Oki Sizing" our dinners. Although I'm a bit embarrased ordering such a huge meal, it re-heats wonderfully at home! We really enjoy Japanese steak houses. When we are out of town we always try and find one. Arigatos is our favorite. It's better than Benihana's! I highly recommend Arigatos! Early bird is a great deal if you can get there in time. It seems we always get to talking with someone else at the table who is "hooked" on Arigatos. Once you start going there, you will not stop!
Special Occasions are a must! – My family and I always go for birthdays, anniversarys, Finally Off of Work Day, graduations, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Arbor Day, you name it, we celebrate it at Arigatos!
Best Special Occasion Dining – Great for all ages, large groups and small. Suits all members of my family from vegetarian child to the meat lover! The portions are generous and the staff pleasant and friendly.
Great Date Night! – I've been coming to Arigatos for years. It's been great to me and my family. Love the experience and the food is great. There's a little bit for everyone including vegatarians.
Entertaining and Delicious – Arigato is an excellent choice to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special event. It is also a great choice for any night out. The staff work together to create an entertaining dining experience like no other. You'll be amazed at some of the skills the chefs have. The service is always great. My friends and I crave the food and no substitute will do. It's absolutely delicious! They give you plenty of food for the money. Take your friends and family to Arigato and everyone will thank you!
The Best, Period – We travel from Springhill in Hernando County just to go to have some of the best Japanese Food in the state of Florida, Period. Besides the food the service and the performance of the chef's are outstanding.
I wish they would open a restaurant closer to my area, with the growth in Hernando County I'm sure it would do well. My children went to Arigato's since they were young and now they take their children there also. I guess you can say Arigato's is a FAMILY thing for all of us!
Great table side dinner show – We have been dining @ Arigatos for 10+ yrs, having both enjoyable and not enjoyable experiences. The chefs are always great, entertaining, the food is wonderful. They entertain children and adults alike. There is always plenty of food. The atmosphere is lacking in cleanliness however, in the waitng, bar, and eating areas and restrooms. Management is very lacking @ the St Pete location and has been for several years. The Sushi bar has not been a good experience since it started--not once have we gotten our order prior to out food being cooked on the grill and we always order it as an appetizer.
Best Special Occasion Restaurant in Tampa Bay!! – I LOVE Arigatos!!! I first went a few years ago when a friend brought me and I go ever chance I get now! I LOVE how they flip their knives, toss shrimp tails into their hats, and make volcanos out of stacked onions and then set them on fire! I love watching the food being made and the chefs always have a sense of humor and throw some jokes in while cooking your food in front of you. It is a wonderful atmosphere and would be great for the whole family or just for a couple. I've gone there for my last anniversary, my last birthday, and as my last meal before an intensive stomach surgery. I'd also like to note that the food is delicious! I never eat steak anywhere but there because of how good it is. I also don't really eat soup or salad anywhere else but there. My fiance notes that the chicken is so tasty and juicy that it almost melts in your mouth (we both get the steak/chicken combo). The white sauce is FANTASTIC!
Our favorite restaurant! – Arigatos is my family's favorite overall restaurant. We even celebrate all our birthdays there throughout the year. The Tampa location is closed temporarily due to a fire. We missed it so much we drove 45 miles to the Clearwater location recently! The food as always was the best; love that goody-goody sauce! Our chef was very entertaining. We made our reservations, we had to change it by an hour on short notice due to an unforeseen incident, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. No wait! I love the shrimp flambe, my son loves the steak, and my husband loves the steak/chicken combo. A menu to please everyone.
Love the Clearwater location. – My family & I have always loved Arigato's. We've been going there for over 15 years. We now live in the Orlando area and everytime we go to Pinellas county we go there. I love the food, the service & it's just fun all together. The kids are amazed by the fast cooking. They also love the "cheaters". The cheater chop sticks make them feel special.
My only problem is that I will only go to the location in Clearwater, even though the one on 66th street is closer. (I've never been to the Tampa location) The resturaunt is in need of remodeling big time. I've called to see if they've remodeled, and they said they are but slowly. (last time I called was in June 2007) To me and the rest of my family that still lives in Pinellas county, it is a unsafe enviroment. But as soon as they are done remodeling, I will be happy to go back to that location.
The food is always amazing and I will continue to be a loyal customer. I wish they would open one up in Uptown Altamonte.
