Fantastic food and service!!

Dined on April 1, 2016

I was at Kome this past Friday to celebrate a birthday with 2 of my best gf. Sergio, our server, was so great. The drinks and food could not have been any better. My steak was cooked perfectly!! I've not had a steak that good in over a year (and I eat at many high end restaurants). I would recommend Kome for anyone wishing to have amazing food in a fabulous setting for a nice dinner out.

Great food -average service

Dined on March 6, 2016

All the food here we ordered was absolutely amazing. The sushi was so fresh and tasty. I also got the wagyu beef entree, which was pricey but the best beef I've ever had. It melts in your mouth like butter. Only problem we had throughout the night was our waitress taking long for our orders and also forgetting one of the sides. We did get the side at the end, but that was when we were full and boxing up our food.

My best friend and I had a great time the food was great as well as the service! We ordered cooked sushi rolls since I am 6 months pregnant and they were fabulous. I typically am more of a raw sushi girl but the cooked rolls were amazing! I highly recommend trying a sushi roll with any kind of fruit in it, it really adds another level to the dish. Ours had mango in it....simply delicious! We will definitely be going back again!

Very nice

Dined on February 14, 2016

My fiance and I came here for Valentines day - what a wonderful place. The food was fantastic and the service was friendly to a fault! I wanted to try Uni for the first time and our server was kind enough to advise me against the Live variety because he wasn't sure I would like it even though it was almost twice the price of the prepared Uni and would have inflated the check and, thereby, his tip - so nice! There were only 2 negative points, but they are so minor that they don't warrant a loss of a star; 1. When we were seated, the hostess put us directly next to another couple when she could have easily spaced us out. That couple ended up fighting at their table which dampened the atmosphere a bit - but that's not Kome's fault. 2. What you read in many other reviews rings true - service slows down quite a bit when the dining room starts to fill up! Luckily, our reservations were at 4:15 and we had desert and cocktail plans elsewhere, so this didn't affect us until our second round of sushi rolls. Had we arrived later, this may have been a completely different experience - but for our first time here on Valentine's day: 5 stars!

Something Special

Dined on February 14, 2016

We ate here on Valentine's Day. Sat in the restaurant, not the hibachi. The service was exquisite, the food exceptional, and it was fresh. Normally we do the hibachi, but decided to try the main restaurant. We are ever so glad we did. It is a must try, especially if you liked their hibachi.

Dined on February 14, 2016

We went on Valentine's day which you would expect slower service but we were very wrong. The service was fast and the food was great! We keep talking about it and can't wait to go back. Very fresh sushi. Slightly pricey but worth it for a special occasion. I never write reviews but thought this place deserved a mention.

One of the best in the area

Dined on February 14, 2016

It was our first time and it was very good.A musst say we are Japanese food lovers. They call us after a while visiting the restaurant the sushi family. The first visit was for Valentin's day. Just my husband and I. We usually go out dining with our two teenager daughters and they can eat sushi like some people eat fries. We moved to the area now 2,5 years ago and this is going to be definetely our fine dining sushi restaurant after we have to leave our great sushi place in SC. It will not be a replacement, because every one of them are individual. I love the ambiance and the most important thing the good time with the great food we have spend in there. I wouldn't recommend it families with small children. Other then that it's a place for everyone. Why don't you give a try?

WONDERFUL EVE

Dined on December 31, 2015

New Year's Eve can be a difficult dining experience...crowded, rushed, avoided, slow. Our evening at Kome was none of the above; it was exceptional! Heather was delightful, very knowledgeable, efficient, attentive and caring. We loved the food and enjoyed seeing a number of friends. As former restaurant owners, recently retired, it was our first venture out on New Year's Eve at over 30 years...and a real treat. We'll be back soon.

Dined on December 20, 2015

First I have to say the food was great. It never fails to impress. The service was less than impressive. It took them 15 min to get me my drink. Then they barely checked in to see if I was OK. None the less I recommend this restaurant for the food alone.

Mixed results for the food. I had the steak, which was very good. My wife had the chicken and did not like it. When the waiter ask her if she wanted to take the chicken home she said no. He did not ask her if she liked the chicken. Overall. . I would say an average experience. You would expect more, for the price

Dined on September 12, 2015

We had reservations for 6:15 on a Saturday night and were seated right away. Our waiters name was Andrew and he couldn't have been more accommodating. I'll be asking for him the next time I make a reservation. He was on top of everything. I have been here many times and the food is always delicious. We first started off with Clam Miso Soup that was rich and full of flavor. Next we had a very fresh House Spring Mix salad that was enough for two people. For an appetizer we always order the Tuna Bites, they are unbelievable! It's tuna and chopped pistachios served on 5 individual Japanese spoons with the most amazing sauce. Give yourself a treat an order some, you won't be disappointed. We always get the old standby of California Rolls and Spicy Salmon Rolls (always fresh and delicious) and then order two of the specialty rolls. This time we got the Saucon Valley Roll and the Passion Lobster Roll, both were incredible!

Waitress wasn't very friendly, I though the hibachi came with rice but it didn't. She didn't explain clearly . Order a sushi and never came, we almos never see the waitress she came to ask if we they had brought us the sushi when we were almos over with the hibachi, brought the sushi, and wasn't the right on. After that never see her again, had to ask other waiter to get me a refil, then other waiter came and gave us the check. It was my first time, went there to celebrate my birthday but was disappointed. Don't know if may be was the time I went, change of shifts, or not a busy time but will have to think on going back.

Dined on July 18, 2015

It's my first time eating at Kome. I got the Maki Set B that includes Spicy Tuna, Spicy Salmon, and a Shrimp Tempura Roll for the Lunch special. It also came with salad and miso soup. The salad was well dressed. The place was clean and neat. Our waiter was very helpful with the type of drinks. I ordered the sake-tini Lychee flavored. It was good, but not great. I would definitely come back here for lunch again.The price was average for lunch special.

We like to sit at the hibachi because it is fun and the saki stream is a favorite of my husband's. However, I love the salmon sous vide and you can only get that in the dining room. This particular night, we made reservations through Open Table and when we got there, they told us you also have to call if you want to sit at the hibachi or else you are assigned to the dining room. They accommodated us, anyway, and I've never heard this before. We sat waiting for our "companions," always worried about who sits with us since it's like a group meal. Six kids under age 21 were seated with us. At first I was let down that there would be no fun or conversation, but that quickly changed when one of the kids ordered his chicken medium rare. Everyone laughed, including me, and although he was embarrassed, it was an ice-breaker. The rest of the meal was delicious and fun. This cook appeared a little less of a performer than most so I was unsure of how the food would taste. One thing you can always count on---great food. The scallops are amazing and my husband's filet was wonderful. I enjoyed the slightly charred vegetables that appeared came from his inexperience, but, if so, was to my advantage. We will only ever go to this hibachi as the others in the valley are not consistent at all.

Nice Japanese Restaurant.

Dined on July 2, 2015

Everything we've had here has been excellently prepared and served well. This place has served well for many romantic dinners with my wife and has been consistently good unlike some other restaurants in the Promenade Mall. We've been coming here for years and still like it very much and this is from a guy that hated the idea of Japanese food at first.
