Good food. Service was a little slow. Seemed like they forgot half our order.

Went to Mokutanya for lunch with a few coworkers. Just as other reviews have mentioned, the food is tasty but are small portions and expensive. Great for socializing or if on a date but not so great if you are hungry or looking for good value. Ambiance was really nice/modern.

I am a frequent customer at Mokutanya and usually make reservations for dinner. The staff this time didn't care to provide better customer service. The food took 40 minutes to come out, we just ordered very basic dishes. And the waitress was snappy " No, you ordered your meal 15 minutes ago". Rude and careless, you can tell when young staff just don't care. I as well not care to come back. The ramen was extremely salty and the skewers keep getting smaller. Not worth it.

It was fun, food was good, decor and seating nice, bathrooms might be tidier, service a little more organized and music choices a little less cheesy.

Service was very poor, probably because it was a Sunday evening. It was clear that the staff had far too much on their plate. Our food took way too long to be served. And the soup that was served was so spicy that neither me nor my son could have it. This is coming from an Indian who loves spicy food in general.

Mokutanya is one of our favorite restaurants, so we will be back, but will try to avoid Sundays from now on.

I do not feel the food and services were worth the value I was paying. The food portion was ridiculously small portion for its price. Services need to be more attentive. Overall it was a very bad experience and I will definitely not going back nor recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Inner windows need to be cleaned more thoroughly; very unclean and just set the whole mood negatively from the onset. Overcooked salmon (how?!), chicken thighs very tough, just overall not a good place to visit. There are better options just a city away in San Mateo

A different Kind of dining experience. We sampled lots of their skewers, from lobster to salmon to chicken and steak.

Maybe 80 or 100 different sake choices. Somerset limited wine menu, but we choose a nice pinot and had a great time..we will return!

I'm American Japanese - my mother is 100% Japanese - I'm 50+ years old, so have a bit of experience with Japanese food as I've visited my relatives frequently in Japan, and my mother cooked Japanese food for us all our lives.
There are so many "Japanese" restaurants out there - most are not owned or run by Japanese, fyi. Not that there's anything wrong with it ;) but there is a difference.
This restaurant has created a nice ambience and the horigotatsu dining-style is fun (tables that are low to the ground and have a recessed floor beneath).
I wasn't impressed with the service - based on reviews I've read, it's hit or miss. I guess it depends on the customer. We were seated, given menus, and weren't approached again for at least 10 minutes, not even for a cocktail. Had never visited the restaurant, so wanted a little guidance - received none.
I know the skewers are what the restaurant is known for, but we ordered the ramen with a couple sides of skewers. Sorry, I just was not impressed - the skewers were nothing spectacular - they weren't bad; I just felt like they tasted like the ones I make at home with Yoshida sauce. And I don't think they are known for their ramen for a reason.
They were out of all of their "chardonnay's"; I know Chardonnay is not a Japanese libation, but why put two offerings on the menu when you don't have it????
So, if you just want some Americanized Japanese food - this is fine; like I said the ambience is pretty cool. But if you're looking for authentic Japanese food, this isn't the place. Kanpai!!

Went to celebrate my boyfriend’s 30th Birthday. With my reservation, as a special request, I had requested a bottle of champagne be waiting at our table & they made that happen. My boyfriend was pleasantly surprised that he was being treated so well. They even brought him a delicious dessert with a candle. This is the only “hip” spot on the Peninsula open late enough (that isn’t a diner or taqueria) to accommodate our late work schedules. stayed til closing time, 2am.

Normally my experience at Mokutanya is quite good, but this last time, service was slow and all over the place. Furthermore, the music was way too loud, causing people to speak even louder. I used to like Mokutanya for the enclosed spaces, which allowed people to be able to enjoy conversations. When did it become a club instead?

Also, when we sat, the waitress only brought one glass of water and proceeded to forget to bring the other until we reminded her. We also asked for the dipping salts before being seated but still had to ask two more waitstaff for it. Each time, they seemed completely confused. “Sauce??” No, salt! Maybe if they had turned down their music?

Anyway, food was still good, but overall, the dining experience was diminished by service and ambience.

this place reminds me of the izakaya in Japan but with an L.A club vibe. I did not expect the food to be great but it was amazing! I am pretty picky with japanese food being japanese myself... but the food did not disappoint. So good

Food is a bit bland; shichimi helps. Worst part was the service. You write down what you want and the quantity on your menu form. How can you mess that up? We wrote down lamb and didn’t get it. We asked for a bowl of rice and didn’t get it. You must have had only one person grilling as it to 45 minutes after ordering to get our meal. The trade off was you gave us 2 extra wyugu beef skewers so I guess in the end it’s a wash.

good vibe but they should play different music choice rather than rap. The meal and drinks are expensive. For 5 little tapas and 2 drink plus a ramen, that’s $90 for 2. It’s a remove your shoes and sitting on the floor table style so make sure you’re comfortable with that.

The restaurant ran out of my favs. They should make sure they have enough inventory specially they are open late at night. It’s so frustrating when you look forward to eat your food and later find out it’s gone another thing is the substitute I ordered is also gone.

I'm now travelling back and forth to the Silicon Valley since almost a year. Every time I'm now stopping at Mokutanya. The Yakitories, Tapas, Shishitos!, Oysters ans soups are just amazing!

The wine is very good and you have a lot of choices.

The wagyu beef and prawns yakitoris are the best. The Oysters are so fresh, love it. The shishitos are always crazy spicy for me, but I keep ordering them, I might be border line weirdo

The staff and the waitresses are always so nice and so sweet with me, can't say enough about them. I'm almost always coming solo and I really do like the extra attention!

I also do love the ambiance, the lights are really low so it's good to relax the eyes and the brain after a long complex work day. The music is great, the playlist always in sync with my playlist.

Overall very good experience and I will come back for sure! One of the best Japanese restaurant of the Bay Area.

Went for my birthday based on the reviews which meant ordering just about every skewer on the menu. The chicken offerings were okay but I was surprised to find the chicken hearts all cut in half (I mean, they are cheap to begin with, but that’s quite a cost-cutting procedure, don’t you think?)

All the mammal products (lamb, beef) were over cooked. The unagi was great. We also ordered Kusshi oysters which were fresh but unconscionably warm. Made them very suspect. The shrimp skewer was also very, over cooked and chewy.

Service was good but they missed a few orders which we had to ask about. Probably won’t bother going back...
