RUDE + TERRIBLE experience 1. Told to come early for reservation 2. The was made to wait 30min 3. Rushed out meals then kicked up before finishing Front door male manager (tall, glasses, grey hair, Spanish accent) was rude and provided terrible service in seating, trying to seat group of 5 at table for3, then tried to seat at a table for 4 no apologies for their reservation errors, kicked us out in the end before meal was complete. Spent $1100+ for 5 ppl upsold a lot then kicked our group out would NOT recommend
Love this place! I go at least once a month or every time I am in town. I always recommend this place for friends to try!!
Never disappoints. Hands down best restaurant in the city !!
Amazing food!!! Our server, Josh, was very friendly and helpful with suggestions.
our server Josh was the best server we ever had. outstanding’ 10 stars to Josh!!!! he made our first visit a really amazing unforgettable evening.
They had an outdoor patio and lots of heaters and spacing between the tables. The food was amazing and we felt safe. Will def go back Next month.
We had a great experience here! The food was absolutely amazing (especially the Yellowtail and the Crispy Octopus), and the vibe was really nice given the fact that it was outdoor dining on a pretty chilly night. Our server, Greg, was really sweet and professional, and all of his recommendations for food and drink were spot on! Definitely a great spot for an (expensive) date night 🙂
Akira Back is an amazing restaurant that I highly recommend. I have visited several times and have had a great experience every time, with delicious food and excellent service. On my last visit, my cousin and I were there for a special celebratory occasion. Greg was our lovely server and met all our expectations and more. He surprised us with a thoughtful customized message on our dessert order. Akira Back is a perfect restaurant to dine in or to order take out anytime!
Exceptional food. As someone who is a huge food critic, and loves good and fresh ingredients I can definitely say that the food was incredible!!! Honestly, one of the best meals I’ve had for years. Everything we ordered was amazing, fresh, cooked to perfection, and the combination + attention to little details made our experience just wow!! Given the situation right now and the fact we sat outside, didn’t bother me AT ALL because everything was so great from the beginning till the end. The 48 hour Wagyu short rib literally melts in your mouth. A must try! Definitely coming back here once the indoor dining reopens as I’m anxious to see the interior of this place.
The only thing I would say is that as much as I loved the service and the food I did make reference in the booking (when asked) that we were celebrating my birthday and nothing was done or said. Very disappointed from such a lovely experience with only one thing missing. Not even acknowledged at all.
Everything we ordered was amazing! Its a bit pricy for sure but so worth it!
