Another waste of time and money.
Poor service, food was bad, litteraly. All three of us were violently sick after our dinner, including our young son. The ruined birthday dinner included overcooked lobster and a very UN-authentic experience. They would not honor their coupon and the manager needs to go back to his day job @ Taco Bell, he was rude and unproffessional. With so many other good choices let this dump become part of the economic downturn.
A Memorable Birthday Dinner.
My nine year old son requested that we have his birthday dinner at a hibachi restaurant because he enjoyed the last one so much .. (near Best Buy in Grapevine.) Shogun Sushi proved to be a very good choice for us. We arrived at 6:15 to find ample parking near the front door. We were greeted within a few moments by a tall host who escorted us to our seats and gave us wine lists, menus, and a "sushi study guide". Our waitress promptly greeted us and asked us for drink orders. She helped me decide on an appetizer. (I'm definitely not a connoisseur of sushi but I found the California roll to very tasty, as did my nine year old.) Our chef arrived at our table and flawlessly confirmed all of our orders. He then gave us a show of twirling his cooking utensils, spinning eggs on the grill and cracking them with the edge of his spatula after a hefty toss in the air. Our chef surprised both boys with his trick ketchup squirters, leaping flames and smoking onion ring funnels. The food (Shogun steak for two, lobster) was cooked exactly how we ordered it. My sons and wife, who have much more discerning pallets than me, had NO complaints about ANY of the food (a rarity in our family). In fact, we polished off everything except for some of my nine year old's chicken ... we were given a take home styrofoam box. Our waitress brought out a complimentary fried ice cream dessert while another employee rang a gong to signal everyone to start singing "Happy Birthday". We were also given a complimentary photo.
All in all, we had a very enjoyable dinner. The ambience was perfect.. not the typical loud, hardwood floor noise in many North Texas restaurants... a mix of couples, families, and friend groups enjoying dinner with soft Christmas music playing. The service was excellent... not too slow, not too pushy ... sincere, pleasant, and entertaining. The food was delicious .. but I'm not the best person to ask. The price was fair and reduced by a 25% off coupon that my wife found.
