Saki, plum wine, chop sticks and ceramic figurine containers for specialty drinks are all authentic touches that you will find at Arigato. After a meal at our Japanese Steakhouse you will say "Arigato", Japanese for Thank You!
Food: Actually was Good; my filet mignon was good
Cleanliness: 3 out of 5
Service: Very Poor
Had to keep flagging a waiter down; they would never come by and we had a full table.
Two times we ordered drinks and no one would bring them so we kept having to tell someone again to get them.
Price: Little pricy; but if the service wasn't so bad I wouldn't have minded. We had a buy one get one free and it was still $62.00 with only 3 beers.
We won't be back; at least not anytime soon; maybe they will get better. They are not losing business I guess. The place was packed.
Sad! used to be my favorite, but now is really old, run-down; staff not as friendly as they used to be; smaller portions and higher prices. They can't compete with Kobe Steakhouse just a mile north. I recently saw a 2 for 1 coupon and didn't even bother keeping it.
I had been dining with arigato since the 70s.It was the most awesome.Now it is run down.I agree with the uneven floor and worn filthy carpet.I ate there once and leaned on the table with an elbow and the table top lifted right off the table.The rice is old and barely warmed and the veggies are becoming exstinct except for the cheap ones like carrots.The beef is excellent.I used to go once or twice a week.Now we go maybe once a year and after the last visit with poor service and food I think it will be less.watch your gift cards some expire quickly and I never get birthday or anniversary cards with coupons in them and we used to always.I guess they dont care if I go back or not.they used to excel and now they are about as good as the cheaper imitation called TOKYO in new port richey and palm harbor.I miss Ted (waiter)and the theatrics they used to perform at the table.Our last chef didnt even tell us his name or say anything else.He clanged around the salt and pepper a little.Did the volcano but by then he had lost his audience and I dont think anyone noticed.The new recipe they use for salad dressing is bland and not colorful like the old recipe.I see this place closing in the next few years.I miss the squaking maccaws.I hope they dont do away with the coy pond.Atmosphere is a big part of dining out.I dont mind the higher pricing-everyone has to, but when service and quality of cooking are gone what is left.I would have loved to have a member of the staff that could speak english to understand that I didnt get any soup.And when the soup came it was hard to tell the person trying to take it away that it had just come.The oriental servers dont seem to have any problem understanding.For the first time I had felt rushed through my meal.I used to take my time there and order several pricey cocktails and have a grand old time.My meal was cleared by the time I finished my one and only glass of plum wine.
THE SALAD DRESSING IS AWESOME. THE TEMPURA IS TO DIE FOR. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS RESTURANT IS THE NASTY FLOOR... PLEASE CHANGE YOUR CARPET. I WILL ALWAYS EAT AT THIS RESTURANT BUT MY GUESTS ALWAYS SAY THEY NEED TO CHANGE AND CLEAN THE FLOOR.
