We loved it! except, since we are a party of 4- we shared a table with another family - usually not a problem - but these people were so negative. We laughed it off and the Chef made an extra effort to keep the mood fun, but these people should have saved their $ and had corn dogs.
We did not have a reservation and only waited about 30 minutes (for lunch).
The shrimp was my favorite, but the steak and chicken were good also.
4 thumbs up from SD clan!

Personally Tepan Edo is one of our favorites at Epcot, the food is good but then again most tepanaki is usually good, the show is well performed and probaly better than your local japanses Steak house (it's better than ours is anyway) and if you decide to go for lunch book the first available time and go early they perform a welcome ceremony when the restaurant opens with the entire staff.
If you have never dined at a hibachi grill then the experience is worth it. If you have a place at home that does the same type of "dinner show", in my experience it's no different than what I have here at home. None the less the food was decent and we had a good time. As stated in a previous post, we also did not have a reservation but the wait was short, less than 30 minutes.
Teppan Edo is not only my favorite restaurant in Disney World, but my favorite restaurant period. The service is unbeatable, the food is exquisite, the atmosphere is soothing, and the chefs are always highly entertaining. I feel bad that my favorite restaurant in Disney World isn't even owned or operated by Disney, but Mitsukoshi really knows how to make fine restaurants.
Mitsukoshi's other restaurant, Tokyo Dining, is also good, but a very different experience. I prefer Teppan Edo, but when reservations are full and I'm in the mood for Japanes food, Tokyo Dining is a good substitute and is usually easy to get into.
I have had wonderful experiences dining there (as well as Tokyo Dining next door) as the CMs and Chefs are wonderful. We were even able to have small modifications and requests easily granted at the table upon ordering, which I always feel is key to success for Guests. This is one location that you cannot be late to or you just may loose your seat, since you do sit with other Guests.
