  • "We had a 730 reservation which we arrived early for. The hostess asked us to wait in the bar until 730. At 735 she told us our table spot would be ready in 1 minute. At 752 she couldn't figure out why are hibachi spot wasn't ready. Totally useless and clueless. We left and went elsewhere. Terrible service on a Saturday night."

  • "Took the staff there for annual Christmas Party. Paul was our chef. Had a great time. Everyone went home full and laughing. No fights (at least between employees) Can't tell you what happened after everyone got home...."

  • "A group of 9, including me, wanted to experience the habachi grill. We definitely got dinner and a show! The cook made delicious food and made it fun. And when he messed up someone's order, he got more from the kitchen. The bill came to $400, but that was only because all 9 of us put it on one bill to split, so it came to about $45/person."

  • "My son wanted to have his birthday dinner at Koto. He was not disappointed! I added a note with our Open Table reservation that this was for his birthday and the hostess asked for his name, quietly so as not to spoil a surprise. At the end of the meal a dessert of fried ice cream with a candle was brought out without any reminder from us. It was a fun and wonderful experience!"

  • "I love eating here - especially at the Hibachi. Our cook was the best one I've had yet - very entertaining; plus it's fun to watch your food being cooked right in front of you!! Only 2 issues during this visit - I had a combination meal on the hibachi - my steak was done in front of me - but my scallops got lost somewhere - not sure if they ended up on another person's plate or if they were forgotten in the kitchen - but the chef was nice enough to get the kitchen to quickly cook some up and bring them out to me. The other issue was my water (my only beverage I was drinking) ran out for about 15 minutes, the waitress looked overbooked and no one came by for most of the eating portion of the meal to check on things like that."

  • "I thought it would be awkward having the chef come to our table, but he was fun and made everyone very comfortable as he threw food at us! haha! It was great!"

  • "Food was excellent; seated in 10 minutes with reservation - waiting for table to clear. Noise level is boisterous because of cooking stations and crowds. Could hardly leave because of all people waiting for tables. I have a dislike for cilantro and I wish I had known that the udon with soba had Chinese parsley or cilantro in it. Otherwise meal was excellent with top-notch sushi. Attentive service but had this subtle feeling that we were being rushed out since the rest of our station had left five minutes earlier. We still had drinks to finish. All in all - would definitely return and definitely have resesrvations!"

  • "We came to the restuarant to celebrate a birthday. The dinner was tasty and the food presentation was excellent, but I was hoping there would be some recognition of the occasion and where was none"

  • "My sister and I are avid sushi lovers and we had been trying to catch up between our busy schedules for weeks. We had wanted to try Koto for a while so we decided to head out there even though we could only meet at 9:30 pm. Koto was fantastic even so close to their closing time. I was impressed by the beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, and excellent service. I have and definitely will recommend Koto in the future."
