So we had free drinks so this place must be good right? No.
The drinks were only free because we walked out after being treated rudely.
We made reservations for 8pm and were there 10 minutes early. We were told that the table was not ready and we would need to wait a few minutes in the lounge. We ordered a few drinks and continued to wait as the lounge filled up with others waiting. We finished our drinks and were ready for more but realized it was already past 830 and we had plans later.
I approached the podium and calmly said we had 800 reservations it is now 830 and we were told it would only be a few minutes at 750. I asked when we would be seated. The guy at the podium was haughty and replied with “whenever it is ready.” Some others that were waiting had overheard our exchange and began talking saying they had been waiting since 730. I headed to my party of 6 and told them that we would be leaving right now. As we pasted by the podium another party had approached the podium. I announced to all listening that we were not waiting and leaving.
We headed across the street to Del Frisco’s, one of the best steakhouses in Vegas. They were friendly and sat us right away. The service was a stark juxtaposition to those across the street. Musashi’s was just another example of the horrible service at a lot of the places in Vegas.
Nice service, but the food/entertainment was sub-par. $90 for 2 people, don’t think I’d like to go back. Food TV did a whole bit on it and it wasn’t as cracked up to be.
We were there with a large group, which I’m willing to allow some service issues for, since it’s tough serving about 20 people all at once. However, our orders were taken by group so it was divided up pretty reasonably. We were at a table of six.
We order donburi almost all the way around, except we had one Japanese pizza order, which sounded interesting. I received my chirashi probably 20-30 minutes at least if not longer, before anything else came out of the kitchen (my wife sent it back to be chilled since it was out so long). Next came the tempura and some of the other food including some fried rice. The Japanese pizza was nowhere to be seen.
The food was adequate. And I should have known better, but the sushi was not great. The tempura was no worse then anything I’ve had before, but the selection of tempura was lame – a mix of broccoli and shrimp with maybe a potato (?) or something. No carrot, no beans, nothing else in the vegetable department. The shrimp tempura, however, was slightly mushy.
After nearly an hour the Japanese pizza came out and was immediately returned because the dough was not cooked. At all. When queried they said the delay was caused by the time it takes to cook the dough. Clearly that was not the case. It is frustrating to be told the order was put in at the same time as the rest of the orders, yet when you finally receive the dish it clearly hasn’t been cooked properly and clearly was rushed to the table. It was replaced with some tempura which was fine.
The worst part, and the part that hurts the review, was after the meal we all felt sick to our stomachs, rendering us useless for almost two hours.
Suffice to say, we won’t be returning and I have warned off the rest of my friends.
HORRIBLE. Made a reservation but still had to wait close to 45 min. The place smelled TERRIBLE, like a rotten incense, it was over whelming. It so was bad that the staff apologized, comped our meal, and gave us cab fair back!!! Food was ok.
It might have been an off day for Musashi, but I just can’t recomend them to anyone.
Yolies & Firefly are in the same parking lot and they are both excellent!! Go there instead.
