Sat at the sushi bar which was fun because we could watch it being made and interact with the guys making it. Sushi was good and enjoyed the sake. Found the pad Thai a bit sweet for me personally (and could have used more peanuts) but the dumplings were good. We will be back to try more of the menu.

While I was still enjoying my dinner, which arrived a little on the cool side, the waiters began clearing the table. It was close to closing time so I guess they really wanted to get out of there!! I would have enjoyed it more if it had been served hot and I had been able to enjoy the eating experience.

I don’t usually write reviews but I’ve been going to this restaurant for 10+ years and for the first time ever, I had a negative experience. We arrived to check in with the hostess for our reservation and we seemed like we bothered her - she was on her phone hunched over in the corner, never made eye contact with us. And rudely told us that we would be sat closer to our reservation time. As we waited. An older couple made conversation and the hostess rolled her eyes back as if they were disrupting her. I get it. Service is not what it used to be, but last I checked, she was working and as a customer- I shouldn’t feel like I’m bothering you to seat me at your restaurant. Very annoyed. Next time, just go to Nectar. I don’t need attitude from the hostess - not a good start to a night.

Food was good and I would recommend it to others. Only issue was in finding parking, as there were no parking available.

Teikoku is a great place with an asian-fusion menu. The sushi is always great, and we enjoy all of their dishes. We have never had a bad meal at Teikoku. The service is always outstanding.

This was the second time in a row dining here. We had been at least once a month regulars however not anymore. Quality and service has declined in the past year. Ordered the sea bass and was served undercooked and mushy with raw spots and the Peruvian steak was dry and could tell it had been sitting for a while. Server did not come back to check on drinks. We tried to visit previous week, restaurant was very busy and reservation was not honored

This is one of the best sushi/asian places around. Fresh, clean, delicious. We drove 45 minutes to get there but it was worth it. This is a nice place for a quite dinner or a special celebration.

First time visitor to this restaurant and the Sunday brunch. Large selection to choose from. Food was good but not outstanding. $25.00 cost was in line with selection and not overpriced. Ambiance fits the theme of the restaurant and was pleasant. Our waiter was just OK. Not all that attentive. We had to ask for refills on water and other drinks. I may or may not return. It would not be my first choice.

Erik was an incredible server and even at the peak of a busy service was keeping us up to date on how our food and drinks were coming along. So friendly and considerate.

I love the food and friendliness at Teikoku. The jumbo lump crab spring roll is fabulous. I also recommend the crispy calamari. The sashimi is so artfully presented and very very fresh. We almost never have dessert when we are out for dinner, but the Teikoku Soufflé' (warm chocolate ganache center with vanilla bean gelato) is very special. Overall, this was the best dinner out that we've had in a long time.

We were seated immediately for our brunch reservation. This was our first time there for brunch, and we were delighted with the variety and quality of food presented. We received plenty of attention from wait staff, and were not rushed from our table when we finished eating. Overall a terrific experience, and we will be back!

New Year’s Eve and the place was busiest I’ve ever seen it. Host/Hostess stand had 4 people standing around, but only handled customers arriving for reservations AND phone calls one at a time. Gave a pretty chaotic impression with people milling around everywhere. No space to wait at bar. Once seated, service was good considering there were several large parties. Food great as always, but hard to choose. Specials were nothing outstanding. Way too noisy for someone with hearing impairment. Next time I’ll ask to sit in the room to the side and try the Omakase menu...
