Geisha is one of the only places I will go to if I'm really in the mood for Hibachi. I have never had a bad experience here and I can't believe all the bad reviews :/\r

I went here last year for my birthday and the air conditioning was broken. Here in Las Vegas that is a major asset to any business. Well, the restaurant got so hot mixed with alcoholic drinks lead me to the bathroom. They didn't even offer to discount the bill. I have been back once since then and again the service sucks. Save the money and go to PF Chang's!

It seems to me that some other customer already have put down what I was about to write here. I do agree with them that this restraurant is somewhat "cheap" towards customer. The price is pretty up there(I do know that teppanyaki are costly), but the food that is being served made me laugh. Basically they'll fill you up with bucket of rice but just gives few pieces of the meat and shrimp. It almost seems like a sampler, not a whole meal. The wait was over 30 minutes despite the fact that there were just one other table occupied other than ours. Not recommending this restraruant. Ive been to about 4 japanese restraurant that offers teppanyaki and this one definetely was the worst.

When I found out that Geisha was opening a west side location, I was ecstatic! I thought this was great. Finally a location close to home. But when I tried the west location I was sad to find that this location was nothing like the East. Their portions were ok but the sauces weren't even close to the original Geisha. I found out it was because it wasn't even the same owners. These guys just used the name. Had the food been the same I wouldn't have cared but their "secret sauce" should have been kept a secret. It looked kind of like a runny orange liquid that turned all the rice red and the mustard didn't look like mustard but more like a red orange gravy. Though I was disappointed, at least I still had the East side Geisha. My boyfriend and I went to the East Geisha for dinner a few nights ago and I'm afraid I was socked in the face once again. Unlike our usual healthy portions of shrimp, we were given 3 pieces. The usual helpings of vegetables consisted of one onion for 2 of us, 2 strips of zucchini and a whole lot of rice. When I asked for hot mustard, the chef pulled out the same runny red orange sauce that I had seen on the West side. And although they still had the secret sauce, they used it very sparingly. I would like to know who the moron is that complained about the mustard or too much secret sauce so that I could tell him thanks for ruining a great restaurant. Needless to say, I think that was my last trip to Geisha. It was good while it lasted.

Pros: Service is good, chefs are entertaining.

Cons: Portions are comparable to Benihana. Taste is becoming bland.

I come from a family with a father who loves to frequent these Japanese Hibachi-table style restaurants. I've been to several around Vegas, and Geisha House, while definitely a worthy entry into the already-large catalogue of them, doesn't top the list.

Atmosphere in the restaurant is questionable. The staff seem to lack personality (though this could be a language barrier, so don't quote me on that.) The place is dimly lit, with only red lights that tend to not go easy on the eyes. The decor around the restaurant, however, is nice and definitely adds something to the experience. It's not Benihana-quality decor, but definitely does add something.

One major complaint I have is that the music in the establishment is inconsistent. Most places like this play traditional Japanese music to suit the mood, but I've heard everything over their speakers from hip hop to oldies. Not that I don't like the stuff, but it doesn't belong in a Japanese steakhouse.

All right, on to why I'm sure you're reading this - the food. It's just food. Nothing less, nothing more. Nothing here stands out above any other Japanese restaurant in town. I'll take the food at Benihana or Pumi over this place anyday.

And then we come to the biggest issue I have with this place - the chefs seem more concerned with entertaining guests than with their safety and food preparation. During my last visit, the chef put so much oil on the table that the flames burned larger than ever before. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but the fan was blowing the air in the room TOWARD ME. Had I not leaned back prior to the man igniting the oil, I COULD HAVE BEEN SEVERELY BURNED. There is no excuse for this blatant disregard of safety toward restaurant patrons.

Like any Hibachi restaruant, this one will NOT go easy on your wallet.

Final verdict? Stick with Pumi or Benihana. Check this place out if you're in the area, but don't go out of your way to go here. And if you're gonna go here, when the flames ignite, LEAN BACK.

I have frequented this establishment for many many years. My parents began bringing me there as a teenager and it has been my top choice restaurant, above all others. It fast became a favorite with my teenagers as well. We have always loved the scrumptious food, exceptional service and fun atmosphere. We went there for dinner last night and I am so sad to say everything good about Geisha left with the previous owners. The food was terrible, service was horrible, dining area was dirty and the friendly smiling faces are all gone. I will not go back there again, my love afair ended last night when the chef put too much oil on the grill before lighting it on fire for the visual effects and it singed the front of my hair and eyebrows. Goodbye Geisha thanks for the memories!

My husband and I have ate at the Geisha Steakhouse every year on our anniversary for the past 8 years now. We went for our annual anniversary meal and found that it has changed owners. We were immediately disappointed with the service, or lack there of, the cuisine and portions were lacking as well. With only 2 tables occupied we were seated with two other couples, my husband and I both ordered the Giesha special which used to be healthy portions of lobster, shrimp, chicken and filet mignon, etc., which at $34.99 a plate was well worth it. Tonight the other couples did not order the same food as we had yet our lobster, shrimp and filet mignon, etc. were split up between the 6 people at the table. They did not order it nor have to pay for it. Yet we were not served their scallops. At any rate, we used to get a full plate of food, tonight our plate was only 1/3 filled - 3 pieces of shrimp, 3 bite size pieces of lobster, 3 bite sized pieces of chicken and 4 bite sized pieces of filet mignon all rubbery and overcooked served with flavorless oily rice. On top of all the disappointment already served up, they handed us a bill with a 17% gratuity already added (for two people)! Unbelievable, but true. Ask me a year ago I would have recommended it to anyone, now... don't waste your time or money. Oh and can't forget to mention this one, as we were getting up to leave the chef cooking at the table across from us knocked over a ladies drink right on her lap... What an experience and not a good one! Eat there at your own risk!

Lousy Service, terrible food, outragous prices for portions of food. Not much more to say about it! Don't waste your time or money on this place, it's not worth it!

Pros: sake is good when not boiling hot

Cons: new owners, share your food with people you don't know, terrible service, expensive for size of portions

.

My family has frequented this establishment for 25 years. It used to be great! Since the "kids" have started running the place, it's all downhill. We had a birthday celebration with 9 people in attendance. The service was lousy. The performance of the cook was lame. He had no spark, and acted bored. The portions were smaller than usual. When 5 people ordered the steak, they used the same amount of meat that was used at another table that had only 3 people at it. Since we had a large party, they added the generous tip to the bill. We had no say in it! Their sign should say, we tip ourselves generously especially when we give lousy, shoddy service. I will not recommend this place to another soul. I used to sing its praises for years. They do need to remodel too. It has not been cleaned or redecorated for at least 20 years!!

PROS: The food was cooked.
CONS: Lousy service, unclean walls and floors, lousy management

This quaint little restaurant is full of surprises. The surprise was the great taste of the food and the
careful preparation of the Chef who served us.
After moving to Las Vegas from the east coast. We
were looking for a Japanese Steakhouse like the
one we use to travel up to Pocono's Mountain to visit. A friend I work with who has lived here all her life recommended it to me. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. She said it was the best kept secret in Las Vegas. She is absolutely correct. The seafood was fresh and the steak was awesome. The restaurant offers a special for two and it was well worth the money. It is off the beaten path but, trust me it will be worth the trip.
