I went there at 900pm Wednesday and they told me they were closed. I double checked the hours on their doors and on their web-page and they claimed their dinner hours is Mon - Thur: 5PM - 9:30PM.
I dressed casually with shoes on. I talked politely to the host. There were a few customer still having their dinner.
Do Not Bother – Wow - what can I say about how disappointed I was with my first and last eating experience at Mt. Fuji.
We waited for 10 minutes to even have someone come and seat us. Waited 10 more minutes to get some water and order some appetizers. After almost 60 minutes with no water or saki refills we got our 3 rolls and appetizers. The rolls were not up to the quality I expect in SLC. The sushi at the local all you can eat place is much better.
I would have rated Mt. Fuji a big fat ZERO if I could have.
Service was definately a ZERO
Food was a ONE.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
Slow Service, Missing Food, but tastes okay – I have been there twice, both times ordered a bento box and an extra sushi roll. Both times it took over 30 minutes to make. It was to go and had I been sitting at the table, this would have been just as ridiculous as sitting at the counter waiting 30 minutes.
Last night I went in, waited 35 minutes and when I got home I had the extra roll and the "bento box". I was supposed to get teriyaki salmon, a california roll, a salad, soup, and gyoza (pot stickers). When I open the box, all I got was the salmon and the pot stickers. I was very disappointed. I choose the meal mainly for the additional roll.
I immediately contacted the company and while the guy on the phone acted apologetic and told me the manager would get back to me right away they haven't.
I am very disappointed. $24 for half of what I wanted. Very slow service. Food was cold by the time I got home.
I was hoping this would be a place I could frequent since it was right next to my home but I think I am going to look elsewhere.
The Best Sushi Around! – Mt. Fuji is easily my favorite sushi eatery, and I have eaten sushi from all over the valley. The first time I walked in to the building I pleased with the architecture and decor that just made the restaurant seem friendly. It didn't take long before we were seated at the sushi bar. The chef Joe, who we had never met before, greeted us like old friends. As we sat and talked we watched as he expertly made our order. It didn't seem to take very long before we got our order, including our favorite, a Dragon Roll. The order seemed to take even less time because of the friendly conversation that we were having with the chef. The dragon roll was just amazing and I don't think I have ever tasted sushi that was as good as it was that night. The good times flew as fast as our new orders of even more delicious sushi stacked up. The sushi was very fresh and delicious. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant, hungry for more!
Mt. Fuji Sushi: Just the Best – I LOVE Mt. Fuji Sushi Bar and Restaurant. I dine at Mt. Fuji's 1-2 times a week, and I think this place is GREAT! Every time I dine there I am treated like family; I am always greeted with a smile and a hello. The food is excellent, the service attentive and timely, and the ambience warm and friendly. Mt. Fuji is a restaurant where you can dine and never feel like you are being rushed to vacate your table for the next diner. So next time you are hungry, make a beeline to Mt. Fuji's, and I promise you, you won't regret it. Just sit down, and enjoy the moment.
Physically Threatened by the Sushi Chef – A simple critique of service should not lead you to walk out of a restaurant fearing that you are about be attacked. As regular customers of Mt. Fugi, we have always encouraged people to give the place a try touting their fresh sushi as outweighing their spotty service (see our previous review). Tonight, both my husband and I were physically confronted by the sushi chef for making a complaint about an extremely long wait for sashimi (50 minutes after the order was placed in an empty restaurant). I can never recommend Mt. Fugi again. Thirty minutes after our order was placed, one patron came in and sat at the sushi bar. He, and the guitar player who provides music for Mt. Fugi at sat down at roughly the same time, were both served their sushi while we had another 20 minute wait. The issue with the long wait was first brought up to the waiter who then brought it up with the management. The sushi chef/management /owner, within our earshot, told the waiter that we should take our food and leave. The waiter apologized for the long wait and threw our check down on the table (our meal had just been served). If Mt. Fugi had made a small gesture, like a simple apology from the manager/chef, we would have been satisfied. As this was the second time within two weeks that we experienced such a wait, further discussion with the manager was warranted. My husband asked to speak to him, but he would not come over and speak with us. He then approached the chef/manager at the sushi bar, explaining his disappointment and that he was ashamed of their service. The sushi chef started yelling at him to "Come back here and talk to me!" My husband walked away. As we were walking out of the restaurant, the chef came after us yelling. He started shaking his finger in my husbands face, almost hitting him on the nose with each wag. My husband asked him to stop the finger wagging. The chef continued. At that point, my husband wagged his finger right back and said "NO!" The chef ranted to us that 50 minutes was acceptable in an empty restaurant and that we had no idea how difficult his job was. He kept shouting at my husband to "Come over here to talk to me!" while pointing out back. We can only assume that he was asking to "take it outside to fight". As we have had great experiences dining in Japan, at that point I said "I have never had a 50 minute wait in Japan in crowded sushi restaurants...You would be an embarrassment to other Japanese chefs." The chef then escalated his voice even further, started wagging his finger in my face, almost hitting my nose as well, and then stomped his foot right at mine, putting his face within centimeters of mine. The chef did everything possible to try to incite violence. He was so threatening that I even had my phone ready to dial 911 in case his physical actions led to physical violence. I applaud my husband for keeping calm until the chef tried to intimidate me, at which point he stepped in front of me, getting the jerk out of my face, and said, "You know what? ***k you" Both of us are can't believe that this actually happened. If this is how you treat semi-weekly customers, how do you treat everyone else? Mt. Fugi embarrassed no one but themselves. Stay away.
Yuck! – My husband and I tried this restaurant, because we had a discount deal and it was close to our house. We wanted to like it, but it was gross. Even their Coke tasted strange. We will not be going back deal or no deal.
Worst sushi EVER! – This was a horrible experience for my wife and me. We went hoping to have a nice early Valentines dinner and the dinner was spoiled by extremely slow service (we didn't receive one refill and we weren't sat for about five minutes when there weren't very many people there) and terrible food. The sushi was small. We ordered a variety of rolls and we were disappointed with them all, especially the yellow tail roll. There sashimi was hard to even swallow because the fish was warm. The building inside was actually nice and felt like it should be a good restaurant but looks can be deceiving. If you sit at the bar you might get served a little faster. The music that was played was the only glimmer of something bright there. Save yourself and go to someplace who does sushi well.
Best Sushi in Town – Mt.Fuji sushi is not only delicious, but creates a very relaxing, enjoyable environment for a date night, or for a family dinner night! The atmosphere is spectacular, live music, and the sushi chef is incredible. There is only one sushi chef, so it does take a minute to get your food on Saturday nights when business is booming, but if you come in at any other time when its slow, especially lunch time, the service is impeccable and the food comes out quickly and delicious! Sitting at the sushi bar is my favorite, because Joe, the sushi chef, is very personable and very inviting. A lot of times he will just make us some random appetizers to taste while we are waiting for our rolls to be done (But we come in a lot so that's probably why)! On top of everything, the fish is the best you will get in town, melt in your mouth kind of delicious, and it is REAL AUTHENTIC JAPANESE SUSHI!
