We love your restaurant but I don't see why you will not let us use more than one Groupon per table when we will have many separate checks. About 15 of us want to attend for three upcoming birthdays but we might have to go somewhere else.

Yes, they're pricey for the good stuff- like my favorite with filet mignon + lobster tail, but it's WORTH IT!!! The chef is always very entertaining! Americans typically eat too fast + don't talk much. Not when you eat here! It's broken down into small groups + the chef involves everyone at the table. Also, if not enough in your party- you'll be seated with others- but I've always had the best dining experiences there! If you have leftovers- no styrofoam box- they wrap it in foil and can make anything from a swan to a ninja! Go, see, ENJOY!! :)

One free birthday meal, two chicken and steak meals, a small birthday cake, and 3 sodas oh and an alcoholic drink that I didn't order, for $94.00!!!! I personally would have enjoyed Burger King better! Oh and I want to mention the cook who insulted a member of our party by acting like he was gay and coming on to them??? Insulting! Don't waste your money. You can go pay 20 dollars and get food that's tastier, not get insulted, oh and not pay for something you didn't order!!!

Cons: when it's busy there's along wait

Just walking through the door is like vacationing in another country. The dress is authentic as well as the mood and music. You are made to feel special and appreciated as a customer. All staff are polite and efficient, anticipating your needs. I never much cared for Japanese food and always left hungry because of small portions. At Arigato's, prepare to ask for a take home container and be amazed at the beautiful packaging for just a "doggie bag". Definitely a place I go every week.

Pros: Filet Mignon is better than I've ever had !!

Cons: Busy restaurant so it's good to go early

I have been coming to the Arigatos in Clearwater for more than 10 years. The quality of food is unmatched by any other Japanese restaraunt. It is my absolute favorite place to dine in the Tampa Bay Area.

At Arigato Japanese Steak House, the food is excellent, the service is exceptional, and the meals are reasonably priced considering the overall experience and the portions. The dipping sauces, salad dressing, and Japanese Egg Rolls are incredible!

The hot towels handed out to customers before the meal are a nice concept, the Miso soup is next and absolutely delicious. The salad is crisp with fresh tomatoes and cucumbers and the ginger dressing is the best I??ve ever had! I usually order the Shogun or Sumo for dinner and my wife loves the Chicken Arigato. We dine at this fine restaurant at least 6 times a year?and we??ve NEVER had a bad meal or a disappointing experience!

Fund dining for family and friends. The waiters are experts at designing unique take home containers from foil: flowers, animals, swordsman etc. Birthday cake was better than expected. Now the yummie and goodie sause is available to take home and enjoy. Bosco

Arigato's Steak House is a great and unique Japanese restaurant. Depending on you party size you might be placed at the same cook top table with another party but its all good. The cooks keep it lively and fun while preparing your meals. The prices are decent and the food is great.

The food is great but extremely over priced! The average meal is around $20... that's for rice veggies and chicken. They offered a free $20 gift certificate with the purchase of a $100 in gift certificates, catch is the special $20 gift card can't be used with any other coupons or the regular gift certificates I paid cash for! If the $100 in gift certificates are like cash they why can't they be used. They don't post that on the sign or tell you that when you purchase it. You have to read the gift certificates after they've already been paid for. The staff is friendly but the management is not. The walls are dirty and disgusting. If they turned the lights up brighter I doubt anyone would ever eat there. They also offer a frequent diners club where you earn points towards gift certificates but twice now my points haven't been credited. The economy is doing terrible and this place is jacking up prices and ripping people off.

We, a family of 4, went to dinner bringing the coupon that says 2 dinners for $19.99. We ordered dinners that costs between 19.99 and 25.99. We also waited in the bar, spending about $50, to be seated after 8:15 p.m.. It was time specified by the coupon. The restaurant did not honor the coupon because we didn't order 2 dinners of $19.99 of chicken terriyaki. The manager was afraid to make a decision to honor the coupon because the owners would take it out of his paycheck, as they have done once before. This restaurant has lost us as future customers and we are telling people the owners does not know how to run a customer-friendly restaurant.

I take my daughters there on each of their birthdays every year. The food is excellent, the portions are large, and the service is great. The cooks are personable and well trained and put on a great show. But the building is old and dingy, almost dirty looking, and they can run out of parking on very busy nights. They have a Rewards Club now for frequent diners. A fun place to dine. They also have an elevator to the second floor if the street level fills up. They also have a bar area while you wait.

This is a fantastic place to take family, a group of friends, or even for a fun and romantic night out with your loved one! Since my first time going there years ago, it keeps getting better and better! I'm so excited that THEY HAVE A TO GO MENU NOW! I tried it a couple of days ago and was beyond impressed! I love my steak rare, and was worried it might be too cooked and cold by the time I got home. Well, it was fantastic! The steak was just as tender as if I had had it at the restaurant! The veggies, and rice were also perfectly cooked! It was FANTASTIC! By far the best to go experience I've ever had!!

Arigato's is a great place to go for a special occasion or for any occasion. Keeps the kids (and kids at heart) entertained with the chefs cooking right before your eyes and foil animals made of the leftovers.

My husband and I have been going to Arigato's for many years. We are definately hooked on the goodie goodie sauce! I wish they would bottle it and sell it. I would buy it by the gallon! We have just started "Oki Sizing" our dinners. Although I'm a bit embarrased ordering such a huge meal, it re-heats wonderfully at home! We really enjoy Japanese steak houses. When we are out of town we always try and find one. Arigatos is our favorite. It's better than Benihana's! I highly recommend Arigatos! Early bird is a great deal if you can get there in time. It seems we always get to talking with someone else at the table who is "hooked" on Arigatos. Once you start going there, you will not stop!

We have been dining @ Arigatos for 10+ yrs, having both enjoyable and not enjoyable experiences. The chefs are always great, entertaining, the food is wonderful. They entertain children and adults alike. There is always plenty of food. The atmosphere is lacking in cleanliness however, in the waitng, bar, and eating areas and restrooms. Management is very lacking @ the St Pete location and has been for several years. The Sushi bar has not been a good experience since it started--not once have we gotten our order prior to out food being cooked on the grill and we always order it as an appetizer.

I LOVE Arigatos!!! I first went a few years ago when a friend brought me and I go ever chance I get now! I LOVE how they flip their knives, toss shrimp tails into their hats, and make volcanos out of stacked onions and then set them on fire! I love watching the food being made and the chefs always have a sense of humor and throw some jokes in while cooking your food in front of you. It is a wonderful atmosphere and would be great for the whole family or just for a couple. I've gone there for my last anniversary, my last birthday, and as my last meal before an intensive stomach surgery. I'd also like to note that the food is delicious! I never eat steak anywhere but there because of how good it is. I also don't really eat soup or salad anywhere else but there. My fiance notes that the chicken is so tasty and juicy that it almost melts in your mouth (we both get the steak/chicken combo). The white sauce is FANTASTIC!

Arigato is an excellent choice to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special event. It is also a great choice for any night out. The staff work together to create an entertaining dining experience like no other. You'll be amazed at some of the skills the chefs have. The service is always great. My friends and I crave the food and no substitute will do. It's absolutely delicious! They give you plenty of food for the money. Take your friends and family to Arigato and everyone will thank you!

Arigatos is my family's favorite overall restaurant. We even celebrate all our birthdays there throughout the year. The Tampa location is closed temporarily due to a fire. We missed it so much we drove 45 miles to the Clearwater location recently! The food as always was the best; love that goody-goody sauce! Our chef was very entertaining. We made our reservations, we had to change it by an hour on short notice due to an unforeseen incident, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. No wait! I love the shrimp flambe, my son loves the steak, and my husband loves the steak/chicken combo. A menu to please everyone.

Fun to celebrate a special occasion. My son loves it! They put on a show, it's loud and the whole family can go and enjoy. They also have a rewards program that accumulates points for free food on future visits. Tasty and huge portions. Enough for lunch the next day! A totally fun and delicious experience.

We travel from Springhill in Hernando County just to go to have some of the best Japanese Food in the state of Florida, Period. Besides the food the service and the performance of the chef's are outstanding.
I wish they would open a restaurant closer to my area, with the growth in Hernando County I'm sure it would do well. My children went to Arigato's since they were young and now they take their children there also. I guess you can say Arigato's is a FAMILY thing for all of us!

My family & I have always loved Arigato's. We've been going there for over 15 years. We now live in the Orlando area and everytime we go to Pinellas county we go there. I love the food, the service & it's just fun all together. The kids are amazed by the fast cooking. They also love the "cheaters". The cheater chop sticks make them feel special.

My only problem is that I will only go to the location in Clearwater, even though the one on 66th street is closer. (I've never been to the Tampa location) The resturaunt is in need of remodeling big time. I've called to see if they've remodeled, and they said they are but slowly. (last time I called was in June 2007) To me and the rest of my family that still lives in Pinellas county, it is a unsafe enviroment. But as soon as they are done remodeling, I will be happy to go back to that location.

The food is always amazing and I will continue to be a loyal customer. I wish they would open one up in Uptown Altamonte.

This is a great place to go for birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasion. Every time the family sits down to decide where to celebrate an event, we always wind up going to Arigato for several reasons; the quality of the food is great, everything tastes amazing (the shrimp and steak combo is to die for... I've never had shrimp that tasty in my life), the atmosphere is quaint and the cooks are entertaining (if you're looking to laugh, be sure to ask for Tonaka (sp?) at this location, he's a riot). The tables seat 10 people so it's the perfect environment for a family outting or a large party. I just love this place and am excited every time we go!

Be sure to call for a reservation as in can get quite crowded around dinnertime. If you're smart you'll go for early bird... you can save something like $8 a plate by eating before 5:30pm. Don't miss this place though, it's an experience you will surely enjoy!

Arigato's had GREAT food. A bit loud, but the ambiance is good. As stated in another review, the chef either makes or breaks the dinner. Ours wasn't very vocal, but was experienced. We had the "Sumo" and "Shogun". The steak was expertly prepared, and the scallops were to die for. All in all, if we had a more seasoned chef, we would have given them a 10. This is a GREAT place to go out with friends to and is much more fun in groups as opposed to couples out on a date.

I have been to all 3 locations, and this location has the best Arigato Chefs by far. They are so funny when they cook your food right in front of you at the Table. The chefs really play up to the kids in the group at the table, but if your table is full of adults then the real jokes can fly.
As you are having a great time enjoying your chef, your amazing meal is being cooked for you. Don't forget to try the famous Yummi Yummi and Goodie Goodie sauce.
Make sure you try the sushi, The new sushi bar is located upstairs, ory ou can order sushi with your meal at the table. The sushi is amazing!
If you are looking for a fun place to eat - Arigato is your place!

This is a fun place to dine, most of the time. The problem is that your experience can either be Fantastic or Just Okay, depending on the personality of your chef for the evening. The meal is cooked at the table, and if the chef is confident and "seasoned", he can be amazing. However, if he is younger, and still wet behind the ears, it can fall somewhat flat.

It's a great place to go with family because the experience is never bad and it's kid friendly.
