Very good Sushi, according to my wife the sushi connoisseur, reasonably priced. Nice ambiance, booths or tables. I have not figured out the best parking yet, after 6 and on weekends parking on the street if you can find a spot. Well worth the try.

Don't like they put tips amount on the bill. either 15% or 20% which makes customer not happy as if both your service and food are good... I believe most customer willing to pay good tips ...

We LOVED the seared salmon roll!!
I've personally been to Koto Sushi for the 5th time, and have always had a good experience there. It's definitely worth it.

It took 25 minutes to get service but the table beside us got food before us and they sat down 15 minutes after us. There was only 2 servers for a large restaurant. I walked by one server and she got offended and told me to" get out of my way". Also the food was terrible.

Their policy is whenever there are 8 people, there would be the 18% charge. Required to pay for 18% service charge with 5 adults and 3 toddlers, even though they are not really servicing/serving the toddlers and the toddlers are not really eating the sushi anyway.
Service was not good. Not sure if it's because the service charge of 18% is fixed already so they had nothing to lose.
Food is still ok, but the portions might be getting a bit small now?
Would go again only with Groupon vouchers.

Terrible service. Server didn't ask how everything is like that. He seems that he doesn't work here and also chef was not friendly. I don't want to recommend you to visit this restaurant.

Everything was good except the tuna/salmon tataki. The wonton outer layer was stale and they shoved a bunch of veggies to make it look like you got lots of tataki

I️ would eat here with a groupon other then that the other 3 star groupon people were pretty spot on.

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.

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?
