Enjoyable dinner – First time been to restaurant. Wait time originally was 20 to 30 minutes. Within 5 minutes, we were seated. Excellent service, great food. Can't wait to go again.
BAD BAD BAD – well, i left a review few weeks ago and its erased!!!! how rude!
i went to the sushi bar side of the restaurant, they didnt even care to seat us down, and i ordered some udon noodle but the waitress seemed didnt know what that was, obviously, she brought wrong order out. i would understand if she apologized or something but they didnt. not recommended at all.
poor review – As a frequent patron, I was completely disappointed at our last visit. When we signed in we were told there would be a 1 hour wait. After 1 hour had passed, we asked who musch longer. they replied about 10 more minutes. after 15 minutes we inquire again and was told only one table in front of us. after another ten minutes we were told there's 4 tables ahead of you. Spoke to manager with no results. After 1hour 45 minutes wait we left. I emailed Kabuto 4 days ago and they do not show the coutersy to reply. will never visit again.
great food.. but watch for the birthday trap!!! – It is one of our favorites. We've moved 30 minutes away and still drive to eat there. ONE CAUTION- the last time we went there with friends, we were celebrating our sons birthday (born a day apart). The waitress asked us if we were celebrating something when she saw the gifts. We told her their bdays. She then proceeded to say "Great, Can I bring them a special dessert and sing?" Of course we let her! Then the bill arrived... and they added $5 or $10 dollars to the bill for the dessert, picture taken of them and a frame! We assumed it was free since she asked to bring it to us! BEWARE- don't fall into the same trap we did!
My friends and I love the show at Kabutos – I really enjoyed my meal at Kabutos and found the chef's to be funny and knowledgeable of the menu! What I thought was funny was that they (the chef's) always say they have been there only a week however, I have been there many times and I can tell you the Chef's have been there longer then they say. It's all in getting the table to talk and have fun. I recommend everything ! They are great (the chef's) about cooking your steak the way you want it. Fantastic service, awesome show by the Chef's. I can tell you I have never ever been disappointed at anytime I have been there lunch or dinner. I do appreciate that the Chef's try to get you to have fun and the shrimp appetizer is GREAT if you can catch it. (ha ha)
Please have fun and enjoy your meal while at Kabutos. My friends and I LOVE it and will go there as much as we can!! O yeah and the servers are nice too. I have yet to fine one RUDE person. They are all very nice and I truly Recommend them to you... Thank's L. B. Stone
cat? dog? – My husband and I met another couple at Kabuto on the sushi side a few nights ago. This was not my first visit so I was very shocked about how the night/food turned out. I have to explain that I am NOT a sushi or even fish eater but my husband is. I usually just order a house salad and a bowl of rice. This time the friends I was with suggested the chicken rice bowl. They said they had it before and it was really good. Considering one bowl of rice is $6 and the chicken rice bowl was $7.95 I thought I would give it a try. When the waiter put it down in front of me I thought I was going to be sick right then and there. I couldn't even tell what was placed on top of the heaping pile of steamed rice. It sure did NOT look ANYTHING like chicken. Seriously I am willing to bet it was NOT chicken. As I started to pluck the pieces of mystery meat off my dish they were all hung together by tendons. It truly looked like the pieces of meat you cut off before you cook the meal. It was absolutely the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in a restaurant. My friend ordered chicken terryaki and once again, there didn't appear to be any "chicken" on her plate. We were both so disgusted we vowed to NEVER return there again. Our big joke of the evening was the WATER was excellent.
Best Hibachi – Went there last friday with my family, it was a busy night but only 5 minute wait with reservation, wickson is the best teppan chef we ever had. he knows how to cook and make my family happy.
Service at Kabuto Sliding FAST! – My family and I have been regular customers at the Kabuto in Goodlettsville for more than a few years now. We only go there as a 'treat', but spend no less than $125.00 per visit. In the past months we have observed a consistant slide in quality of service. DO NOT allow 'Rodney' the 'latino-japanese hibatchi chef" to prepare your food!!! Not only did he open by telling us it was his second day as a cook, (which I have come to expect because three of the past five chefs have made the same claim!!) but when I questioned the scattering of egg shell throughout the rice he then asked me to show him where! All the while stirring and stirring it in! I informed him that I was not getting paid to cook and that was his job! He was only disgusted by this and could not have been in a bigger hurry to be done with us! At that point, the show was over, no onion volcano for the kids!
Aside from this, he was completely unable to cook more than one thing at a time!?! this is hibatchi, right?
With only the four of us to serve, I don't think timing the dishes to be that unreasonable to expect. The entire meal was prepared hurridly, mis-seasoned, the vegetables were warmed not cooked, as well as shrimp, crab and two orders of lobster BARELY prepared! I am not one to just look for something to complain about, I do appreciate a fine well prepared meal. I won't think twice about paynig $35 for a twelve year olds plate, BUT it had better be a $35 plate of food!!! When I did seek the managers attention, his only consulation was that if I would call ahead, only then he could assure that I got what I paid for. If this is the case I think each chef's menu should be pro-rated so that their ability is reflected in the check. Otherwise I will trust that a teenager can prepare a pepperoni pizza properly for less than twenty bucks!
My best advice, if you plan to spend $30 a plate let them know AHEAD OF TIME that is what you expect!
I will not make that mistake twice!
Best Japanses in Nashville – Pay no attention to those bad reviews! This is by far the best food, most entertaining, and just great place we eat - averaging twice a month since the restaurant opened. If you are looking for romantic, quiet, or leisurely, this is not it. However, we always leave a geat, well-deserved tip and feeling full and satisfied - usually with a doggie bag. There is a wait on friday and saturday, but during the week it is quick and consistent.
Bad Service, Poor Food Quality, Slow – My family and friends do not like the quality of Kabuto. The service is very poor and the people are not friendly. The meat seems to be poor quality because if you do not eat it as soon as it comes off the heat it is like rubber. The sushi is less than par by far. I suggest you save your money and go to Fuji on Rivergate Parkway.
