great food! great atmosphere! great service, – been their a few times recently and few times last year and have no complaints about the restraunt all my friends and family love the food, service, overall i give it a 10
Good food, kinda pricey – I went with a few friends and we had the Teppan. The food was great however it was a little pricey. Granted, most Teppan is not cheap but no other restaurants (I've visited) charge extra for fried rice. It may not seem like a lot at first, but with a group, it quickly adds up. Plus the meal options were already a little higher priced than any other place I've eaten. Because it's close to my home plus the food was really good, I will be back. Expect to pay about $50 a person after tax tip and soft drink. The front desk is a mess. We had to tell them four times we were there with a reservation for Teppan and they still sat us in a regular booth. Very unorganized and not friendly. I will not score the restaurant for that but if they do read these reviews, they should seriously retrain the staff. Oh and please, lower the music. We could barely hear each other all night.
Good for lunch – perfect for lunch. good price, good service, and a great lunch companion
Sick to my stomach – My husband and I have enjoyed dinner (usually sushi) at Chomps many times over the last six years. However, our visit there on Tuesday will DEFINATELY be our last! Instead of eating at the sushi bar, we setteIed on Tepan. I ordered the Under the Sea special, which includes both shrimp and scallops and. Durring service I commented to my husband that the chif didn't take nearly as much time to cook our food he usually does. While the food tasted great, about an hour after finishing my meal, I became violently ill. My husband has called the restaurant three times to complain and hopfully be reumburssed, but so far managment has just given him the run around. I mentioned my experience at Chomps to a friend and she said they use old fish and have been closed down by the H----- Department twice. Had I known early, I NEVER would have ate there!
Not fresh, not Japanese, but nice servers, slow as heck! – Being from Japan, I know fresh and authentic, but this place isn't it. They try the Benihana technique, but the service I have received from the last 15 years has been friendly, however food quality I have to say they lack majorly. Try this for those who eat there: when ordering shrimp, try to see if the shrimp tail slips off the shell when pulling. If they break off easily, and not slip off, that just tells you it is old. I tried ordering traditional sushi, and I would say it is not even close. I hate the false advertising for those who try to sell you "sushi" they take decades of training, and when sashimi is more than a day old, they leave a shiny film that resemble a thin mother-of-pearl shine (check that out too!) I don't feel that they get how important fresh means to sushi and sashimi, and one can end up getting really sick from that, not to mention poorly selected fish can send you to the hospital, and I don't have the confidence to eat there any more.
Very POOR quality sushi. – Went there for the $20 all you can eat sushi and thought it was a deal in the too expensive restaurant. Since they have many "rules" on how to get to your next plate I couldn't get passed the first. I could of paid $10 for those rolls at a small mom&pops sushi place. Our server was nice, only good thing I have to say.
Most Fun You'll Ever Have – OKAY, the parking sucked, we had to wait a bit for our reservation and the music was a bit loud, but once we got down we had the time of our lives! We had sushi first and later the teppen chef came out and threw rice everywhere and made me laugh so hard my beer came out of my nose! The scallops and filet mignon were perfectly done, and my friend's pomegranate martini was the best I'd ever tasted. KUDOS.
Avoid at all cost. Poor service/Over priced/Poor presentation/sticky floors and not in that order. Hell's kitchen. – As soon as you walk in , your shoe's stick to the floor like some kind of glue. Probably to keep the customers from running away. Two Manager's are eating at the bar talking to a third about how it use to be at Rockin Taco, while customer's are waiting for a take out ,for 30 minutes. The receptionist had to appoligize for the wait 4 times during the wait and the dish called ceviche leaves much to be desired. Four thin pieces of toast that look as thin as potatoe chips and a mixture of fish that is mostly scallops in a sauce of Pace Picante Sauce with dried crab meat on top. Most strongly a candidate for Hell's Kitchen. The owner's would be served best by leveling the place and starting from the ground up. In this time of a poor economy and huge unemployment, you would think the owner's could do better, but I guess, one must employ family. Not to be tried again until you see a large sign that says " Under new Management". By the way, don't expect change back unless you ask for it and when you do, you are left with the feeling that they think they deserve it. Not exactly my worst experience, but I haven't waited 24 hours to see how it comes out.
Worst Customer Service – The service at Chomps was horrible. The waiters are rude, and the management does nothing to try and help the situation. They also harass their customers and I got sick from their expensive food. Their customer service alone makes me not want to go back.
