“Fun = Great Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Upon entering we were greeted by a friendly host, and in Japanese tradition annouced to the restraurant. The table was quite different as there was a round grill in the center not sure what to expect our waiter quickly came over and explained the entire menu after asking us if we were first timers. The food choices were excellent and were served quickly and the portions were just enough so all could share from each other. We choose to order a la carte style, although the menu offered very good couple choices and happy hour specials. As our food was grilling , it offered a perfect time to enjoy the company of our party. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive, he had perfect timing. The atomosphere is young with music in the background muffling other guests conversation. The finale was the dessert, open grill, of course S'mores. Yum. I wouldn't recommend this for families with young children as the grill is hot, unless your child is a frequent restaurant goer.

“Great tasting, choice cuts of meat”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

We ordered the meat lovers combination and two additional plates of beef between the five of us. The portions were good, and the happy hour beer prices were great. The service was prompt. We all left happy.

“Good food, pricey”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Went here for DineLA where we got to try food for a discounted rated. Overall the service was great and the food was really good with options that included filet mignon and shrimp. I just can't imagine coming back here for the amount of money we paid and the amount of food we got. Although the quality of meat choices is very good, I feel like at regular prices, we wouldn't get our money's worth.

At the end of the day YOU are doing the cooking. Although I think it's a tad pricey, it is a great experience to have. It would be good to come here with a group of friends, a date or family (although maybe not with too young children since the grill gets very hot).

“Great for Happy Hour”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Terrific prices for happy hour. You can try a lot of different items for low prices.

Great service. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff.
The rib eye, Filet mignon, mushroom medley, fried gyoza, NY steak were all terrific.

Congregation Ale House
Good happy hour. Nice beer selection. Great bar food. Homemade potato chips with dipping sauce and pretzels were really good.
