Gamers by Thomas K. Carpenter My rating: 3 of 5 stars For some reason, I’ve found myself reading a lot of YA fiction over the last couple years. On the negative side, it appears that Dystopias are the genre du jour. Nothing wrong with them, and I think…

During World War II, something happened that nobody ever talks about. A tale of mysterious balloons, children caught up in the winds of war. And the terror of silence.

First, let me say what's good about this place. It's spacious, so, unlike some of the other Hibatchi places I've been to, you're able to enjoy your dinner without being distracted by the shenanigans of the next table over. Our chef was good and personable. He was constantly joking with my 8-10 year old siblings (my parents decided to go through the child raising again after the first three of us graduated from college) and playing with their expectations of Hibatchi; doing things out of order to surprise them, for example. Now, what was bad about this restaurant. The food was quite substandard for this type of restaurant. Sure, I've grown more sophisticated in my tastes for asian food since I first had Hibatchi as a kid some nearly 20 years ago. But as recently as a few years ago I went to a hibatchi place and while I had, sadly, grown jaded to the spectacle, I did enjoy the food. Usually my favorite part of hibatchi is the salad. I've bought bottled ginger dressing before and it's never quite as good as what I've eaten at hibatchi places. The dressing at Arigato didn't taste anything like that or any other similar dressing I've ever had. They screwed up the miso soup - miso soup is usually just a powder you add to chicken stock. Somehow they screwed that up. The Yum Yum sauce was anything but. The chicken and steak were bland. Really, the only thing I thought tasted good was the rice, because it was a little crispy, but most others thought it was a little too overcooked. All this by itself would have made for a bad experience, but not worth writing about. This is only my third review via Google's system - I'm not a prolific reviewer whether it's a positive OR a negative review. I don't have the time. But Arigato stepped over the line. My mom's soup had a fly in it. Hey, I know - if you want perfectly clean food go make it yourself; all restaurant food is probably slightly more gross than we care to know; blah blah. But when you have something egregious like a bug or other cotaminant in someone's food, I expect something a little more than "I'm sorry." We're not talking about food that wasn't tastey or didn't come out exactly as I asked for it. I've gotten meat that was way overcooked compared to what I ordered and I've never sent it back to the kitchen. When food takes hours to come out and the manager apologizes, I'm placated. But when there's a BUG in your food, I expect AT LEAST for that food to be free. Not everyone's meal - I'm not expecting to bankrupt the place or something. But at the very least, my mother's meal should have been free. What did the manager offer? A free drink. Sorry $8 != $30. When you mess up, you need to take responsibility. You just failed the most important aspect of customer service - you bend over backwards so that the customer wants to return. My young siblings love hibatchi. It's not out of the ordinary for each of them to want to go for their birthday (that's why we were there). Each time you're talking something like $150 plus tip (or more - we took up an entire table). So that's at a minimum $450 per year lost plus whoever doesn't go now after reading this review. And given how empty that place was (should have been a clue - also wish I'd read the other Google Plus reviews that shows this place has been in decline for a while now), I don't think you can afford that.

This place is quite delightful - my wife and I love to come here for anniversaries or milestone birthdays. It's too pricey to come more often or else we would. My favorite thing about the menu is that it's seasonal so you're getting the best-tasting food for that time of year. My favorite items are the tartare, the curry lobster bisque, and the corn chowder. Their buffalo steak is also great. It's a fixed price menu - for a certain price you get to pick how many entrees you get. They're small, but when you also count the bread you're eating and the included dessert, I usually get really full. Speaking of dessert, I find that it's always the weakest part of any Tony Foreman/Cindy Wolfe restaurant. That also applies here.

My co-workers and I get food from their lunch specials every Thursday and it's the highlight of my work week. Their yum sauce is extremely delicious and they have very generous portions for what you pay. Depending on whether I've had a snack, I can't always finish all my food. Definitely check it out if you're local - your stomach will thank you!
