Have been here several times trying to get myself to love this place but each and every time i leave disappointed w the food and cost. The chef seems to be the real deal and some of his dishes are well executed but some are just bland. Then sticker shock sets in and you leave feeling taken advantage of. If... More

Stayed at hotel. Had two friends meet me for dinner on a Sunday night. Just one other table there and we were the only three at the open grill. Chef was nice and talented. That's about it. Very expensive and for the price I expect a better ambiance. No music, staff had rolled in a TV and we're watching a... More

I obviously did not have the same experience as some of the other guests. I went there on a tuesday around normal dinner time. There were only 4 people there besides my table, we were three, so I don't think there is any excuse for this. My friends and I all ordered around the same time. My friend gets his... More

Although showing a very nice atmosphere and the service provided by their staff was very attentive and efficient, I believe that the quality of the dishes although good, did not correspond to the invoice value charged. This may be a generalized situation in the city of San Jose, where it is quite obvious that the cost of living is very... More

I really like the layout of the restaurant as you can eat at the sushi bar or sit at a table and they also have teppanyaki tables. Extensive menu and good saki. A very enjoyable meal. Will visit again

Went to a family celebration and I had one of the best meals I've ever tried in town. I've always been reluctant about Japanese food; however, Fuji went over my expectations. The service was great, and this five-plate lunch including dessert was delicious and awesome. Promise to come back soon!!!

Enjoyed the show at teppanyaki table. Taste was excellent and overall service was fine. The sashimi appetizer was one of the better we had while in San Jose.
