The staff was very accommodating when we had originally made reservations for 6 and ended up with another person joining us.

Pricey. Even with the groupon, it was still expensive for our family of five, and all of us only drank water. The white sauce was horrible. I asked the waitress if they changed the recipe and she said no. But it did not taste good at all.

The entertainment factor has went down hill considerably. Our cook was very nice, but lacked humor and excitement. Our waitress barely looked us in the eye and was not very tuned in to our group. The food was good as always, but we were looking for a more exciting evening since it was my daughters 9 birthday dinner. Although, we did not get the birthday package ($10), a pepperidge farm cake is not appropriate for such a place as Nakato's. I would've paid more for a nicer cake and package option.

The chef was not very friendly & acted like he did not want to be there. We took our kids for the first time. As they watched other chefs around us, they were excited for our turn. When our chef arrived & began cooking, you could tell that he was not in a good mood.

A bit pricey. Would not go there without a coupon.

From Our Editors

The Nakato family first opened its eponymous restaurant in Charlotte in 1976, the year mankind discovered fish. Today, their team of seasoned hibachi chefs span three locations, where they prepare entrees of filet mignon, chicken, and veggies with tofu in a showy teppanyaki style atop tableside grills. Each entree arrives with an array of sides, ranging from onion soup to noodles and rice. Behind their own counters, sushi chefs coil rolls filled with smelt roe and spicy aioli and slice tender pieces of tuna and salmon sashimi.
