DragonFire Japanese Steakhouse
Centuries ago, Japanese fisherman couldn't wait to get off the boat to eat some of their fresh catch, so they built grills on the boats to cook their fish slowly over an open flame. The chefs at DragonFire Japanese Steakhouse continue this tradition, searing seafood, vegetables, and meats over oak charcoal and paying as much attention to the grill as one normally pays to a pregnant British princess. Diners gather around the robata grill to witness the chefs sear scallops and steak coated in savory marinades.
They also gather around teppanyaki grills for hibachi meals, which chefs prepare while tossing morsels of food into the air. Or, diners can perch at the sushi bar and watch sushi chefs wrap seaweed and sticky rice around fish and vegetables.
What some people are buzzing about:
the food was absolutely awesome!Reviewer, OpenTable, 5/10/13
Very few places can you find California rolls with real crab and that makes it a winner in my book!Will R., Yelp, 10/4/12
“Don't bother. The place has gone downhill - big time. ”
“Don't waste your time. Service is slow. Half the menu is not available. What is available isn't great, etc. ”
“Slow service and out of several items you would expect them to have: lemons, filet, and the bar was closed. We were there at dinner time. ”
