The cooks there are paid for performing besides cooking. They put up a nice show and it is pretty entertatining for the first time or for special occasions.

Not worth a well-worded review. . . . * Waited 15+ minutes for a server to come to our table. * Eating table was "sticky." * Floor under my table was dirty and slippery. I didn't want to know WHAT that was down there! * Server didn't know about alcoholic drinks. I'm talking generic drinks like margaritas with a side... More

The food is overrated, unless you're going for the experience, and once is enough to last a life time! Super expensive for the quality!

Went for my dad's 80th Birthday party on a Sunday for lunch. We had 4 tables, 10 per table. The children got their chef first. My parents' table got their chef last, but he seemed to be the most entertaining. Even though his first onion didn't work, he got another one so he could make a "volcano." He also did... More

It's best if you have 8-10 people in your party and have the whole table, it's fun watching the chef cooking in front of you. Lunch is a better deal. They have refular order and serve section too. Food is decent,
