Meal was good but service could have been better. No water offered. No wasabi came with sushi... Seemed to take a while to get his attention.

Good lunch otherwise.

The food was very good (albeit a bit pricey) but the whole place was jam packed with the downtown lunch crowd, so they really just need more people to staff it. It took a lot of effort to flag someone down for the bill and even more effort to flag down our server to bring the machine. If you're going to cater to the corporate lunch crowd, you need to find a way to streamline things.

Had a 5pm reservation and the restaurant was pretty quiet, good for conversation. Good food and some interesting roll options beyond a typical sushi menu. Affordable with Groupon.

Been to Koto numerous times over the last few years and I must say that the portions tonight were truly disappointing. The sashimi and sushi were about 25% smaller with little to no garnish. Restaurant was not busy at 6:30 and orders were slow in arriving to the table. Maybe new chefs?

We went in with a groupon, which should not mean anything but apparently it does because our rolls were MUCH smaller than the table beside us. Isn't the point of groupon to make the customers want to come back because they see value? The prices are VERY high for what you get, sushi for 2 of us was almost 100$ and we only ordered some sashimi and 4 rolls. When it came time to pay, the server left a sticker with "suggested tips" and since we got a discount from the groupon before she handed it to me she pushed the button for dollars so we couldn't leave a percent on a smaller bill. Very rude.

Overall a very good sushi spot in downtown calgary. At lunch the rolls are pre-made and they are unwilling to alter any tools
To accommodate a gluten allergy. Other sushi spots are more than good with substitutes during the lunch rush.

The food was great but a bit pricier than most sushi places I've been to. Service was quick. I wish the server was more engaged, maybe it was because we had a groupon. But we were looking for a new sushi spot closer to home. When we told the server this, it didn't even phase her, no response at all. The coldness of the service and the priciness of our dishes - we had 1 order of salmon rolls, 1 order of tuna rolls, 1 order rainbow rolls, 4 pieces of salmon, octopus & tuna and an order of beef tataki. The salmon sashimi was $15 for 4 pieces! It was good & fresh though & my bf who's not a big sushi fan would definitely go back. Our bill was $81 for the above with green tea. Another thing I didn't like is that they have 20% & 30% tip amounts written on the bill. We tipped the standard 15% on the entire bill, our groupon was for $50 so in reality it only cost the $29 groupon & $31 bill so $51. Which was reasonable for me. Since my bf liked it there we will probably go back on another date night as he doesn't mind overpaying for food

Pairing this with a Groupon makes the sushi affordable, otherwise it can get pricey rather quickly. However, great location with ample free street parking after six.
