My family and I have been going to Yamatos for over 30 years. We've taken relatives many times and no one has ever been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service friendly. Many people go for special occasions.

In my opinion, this was a terrible experience in every way. It started with the hostess greeting our birthday party of 21 in a rude manner, informing us that she would not seat any of us until all our party arrived, even after explaining to...More
