Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family and I had dinner here for the first time in 2 months. We ordered the fried mushrooms to start and OMG, it was delicious. We order other items such as: a chicken dish, a fish dish and pasta. We walked away super stuffed and satisfied with our food order. Staff were friendly and refilled out drinks often.

This is a fusion of different ethnic food... mainly American, Japanese, and Italian. The kitchen is visible from the dining area and you can see the chefs hard at work. When the place has lots of customers, the service time gets longer.

Had dinner here for the first time and wasn't disappointed. Food was good and our server was nice and funny. Spent about two hours there and had a good night.

The funniest part of my experience was that a couple who arrived at the same time as we did were able to order, eat, finish and pay before we received our lunch. I ordered a grilled chicken salad, so nothing too complicated. Food is subpar at best. Service from the wait staff w a smile but the cashier (maybe owner or manager) could learn to smile. It will be a while before I go back.

I don't know if Japan has "grills" but if it does, this is probably what it would be. Extensive menu of Japanese items along with their interpretations of local and American dishes, I had a lunch of a Japanese style of Hamburger steak which was breaded and fried, like tempura, and served with tonkatsu sauce. Along with it was a selected serving of pork yakiniku, like teriyaki, a small side salad, and a small cup of soup. My wife had a bacon cheese burger with french fries that she thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely eat there again.

Decided to have lunch at the Marianas Business Plaza. Gentle Brook is located on the first floor. Food is excellent and staff try hard. The place needs more waitstaff. The wait sometimes is long but worth the wait. Come early it gets busy.

The first time I went there I wasnt sure what to expect. I don't visit restaurants or cafe too often but it was close to my work place and I eanted to eat somewhere outside after a stressful day at work. When I first entered the cafe I took my time observing my surroundings and I walked around the cafe a bit before settling down. From what I saw the room was spacious, they had a pool table on one corner with a aquatic theme, and on another corner had big tables to accomodate big groups. There were other tables in between though it only supported for people to sit on. Spacing between these tables were well thought out because you dont feel cramp when sitting down on them (which I felt and saw when i dined there again). After choosing a corner with a window view and a high stool to sit on I waited for quite a bit of time (30 mins avg) for them to notice and serve me. On point of contact they were very professional, courteous, and friendly. But the wait between them noticing you, takimg your order, and serving your food can be a long time and can fet irritating when your in a rush. They have excellent 2 combo meals to choose from at good prices that they can leave you full for the average person. For example, I paid for $10 for kametsu hamburger + boneless japaense chicken + white rice + salad + unlimited drinks of ice tea or green tea which filled me up nicely. They also hace some nice background music going on and decor is unique, especially if you look up near the center of the restaurant as you can see those old fashion windows we see a lot in disney movies from years ago (1st thing that pop into my mind upon seeing) that was lightly decorated. It really does give the feeling of a "gentle brook" where you can relax and enjoy. Conclusion: Pros: Decent food, nice atmosphere to relax, good customer service ONLY on point of contact (when they approach and coverse with you). Cons: can have long wait times between noticing you and serving you. I would only reccomend this restaurant to those who dont mind the wait and are not in a rush to use this time to chat or simply relax while the food is being prepared and serve.

Gentle Brooks is owned by a Japanese. Because of this, I expected the food to be delicious. Japanese people are known to provide excellent service and cook delicious meals. I was not expecting much from the service, because majority of the restaurants on island do not know much about CUSTOMER SERVICE. As I've mentioned, I expected the food to be delicious, but it was just TERRIBLE! A friend and I spent less than $20 for two sets of meal, but I could have saved my $20 and gladly spend more on food that actually tastes good! I ordered a loco moco with vegetables on top. To my surprise, the burger had no sauce at all! All it had was a salad dressing, which by the way tasted bland. Burger was also hard and dry. Believe it or not, the burger tasted like frozen burger, heated up on a microwave! What Japanese-owned restaurant does that? UNBELIEVABLE! Loco moco came with a cup of miso soup, which was also terrible. MISO SOUP WAS SERVED COLD!

Went here yesterday for lunch. They have a special menu that offers two options for lunch, both centered around a hamburger steak. Option A ($10) has the hamburger steak prepared traditionally, served with gravy. Option B ($8) has the hamburger steak prepared 'menchi' style (breaded and fried). I chose B and you can then choose from 4 add on items: Chahan (fried rice), thinly sliced pork, fried base fillet, and...I can't recall the last choice. I chose the sliced pork. It came served with a cup of tomato soup, a small salad, and iced tea. Delicious! I returned today and tried Option A with the Chahan and was not disappointed. It was on point. Oh...and there is free WIFI too! Win!!

Stopped for lunch with a friend and ordered off of the standard lunch menu, trusting that we would get our food quickly . No such luck, as it took over 40 minutes. When my friend' s arrived it was the wrong order -another 1 minutes. We were not in a hurry, but.

I have tried this restaurant several times, each time hoping it would be better than the last time, but have been disappointed each and every time. The food just doesn't compare to other restaurants around, and I had a terrible time trying to get the waitress to refill my water and iced tea.

The waiters were polite and friendly, had no problem with the service and the food was amazing! Their music choice was really relaxing to me. Definitely going back and trying out their other menu items.

Had a great time with my friends!! The food was great and the staff was very friendly and funny =D I felt uneasy to go in at first because it looked a little pricey but the food was actually affordable and the atmosphere was simply relaxing! The music was soothing and the chairs were comfortable so it was just the perfect place to sit and relax to catch up with your friends. Since then I've been visiting the restaurant with my friends and family more often. Their menu includes international dishes so you can enjoy varieties of food! Right now, my personal favorite is their new menu Katsu soba!
