My wife and I had a very nice Valentine’s day lunch there. Food was very good and service was excellent. The only complaint is the adjoining tables were uncomfortably close. No way to tune out the conversations next to us.

My wife and I have been going to Kotta's for over 10 years. It is our favorite sushi restaurant and we have watched many people there grow. It has been a nice experience. The food is always very good. We were there a couple of weeks ago and recently for my wife's birthday. Unfortunately, it seems the place is slipping. A couple of weeks ago I ordered New Amsterdam gin. I was told they were out and could substitute and I chose Hendricks (of course!). No problem; though this is the first time I have ordered something that they were out of. Recently on my wife's birthday they were out of Simi chardonnay and this is the first time this has ever happened. It seems that inventory control is a new issue. Service was also not up to par this time. I hate it when I have to grab my own fork (after asking for one that never arrived), our edamame and J-Bombs were room temperature (probably sat on counter for too long), waited exorbitantly long for sushi rolls to arrive, ordered drinks that were very slow arriving, and the worst is sitting there when you are done with empty water, empty drinks, and no check insight. I hope Kotta's management will read this and take some action as there are new sushi restaurants opening up in the area all the time. I will have to take my business elsewhere if this should happen again. One more thing: all this happened on a Wednesday night and they were not that busy.

Kotta has been our go-to sushi restaurant for years for special occasions, meals when family is in town, date nights, and the get-togethers with friends. The sushi is always outstanding and the service is wonderful - the staff is very friendly. The monthly roll specials are unique, flavorful, and fun to mix in with our favorite rolls. They have a great drink menu with an array of wines, beers, and fun mixed drinks. Some of our favorite rolls are the volcano roll, rainbow roll, and guns n’ roses. We usually have a few pieces of sashimi or sushi, which is very tasty if you like the raw dishes. My husband says the chicken friend rice is the best he’s ever had and orders it every time!

We went in for a 50th birthday celebration with 7 people. It took us almost 15 mins to order drinks. Half of our table got their food and it was another 20 mins before the other half got theirs. This was only after we notified the manager of the issue. Our waitress avoided our table the entire night and we couldn't figure out why. It was only after we received our bill that we realized a 20% gratuity was added(we were not told beforehand). Then we understood why she was not worried about us. There are too many other sushi places in the area for us to return for mediocre food and awful service.

We have traditionally only gone to one Sushi Restaurant in the area. Decided to try Kotti and was impressed not only with the quality of the food, but with the wait staff and all of the attention we recieved. This was a great experience, great food, and will be back for more. Also if you like spicy this is a good place. The J-Bomb is one of my new favorites.

We were seated at a nice corner table immediately. Our server was great. Started with sea salt edamame, which were fresh and hot. The spicy tuna and spicy salmon rolls were yummy but seems they were smaller than previous visits. We shared the seared steak with steamed rice also very good. haven’t had a bad meal here, just seemed to skimp on the rolls tonight...

Our Food selections were Stunningly Beautiful works of art, but not the very best I've ever had in taste, texture and flavor. Thus 3/5 on the food. I would go 3.8 if I could. But not a 4.

I had very high hopes for Kotta based on the very high overall rating on Open Table. Over the years we've been to many very fine Sushi and Japanese restaurants across the country. I was looking for a great place for our 43rd anniversary and I selected Kotta.

There is nothing wrong with Kotta. Nice place, nice greeting, seated on time, excellent service.

We ordered a couple of appetizers including the fried Shrimp Spring Rolls (GREAT!) and salted Edamame which were good as well!

Our 4 Sushi selections were all from the higher end including Mardi Gras, TDF (I think it was), Tuna Tower, and Volcano. All were good. I liked the Volcano best.

I think we'll return and make other selections from the regular menu and regular sushi offerings.

Having a reservation doesn’t matter. We had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. Don’t go here if you are pressed for time. They just sat everyone in order regardless of reservation or walk-in. Sushi was good, server was very nice, hostess had no idea how to properly seat tables. Arrived at 7:25 for 7:30 reservations, were told it would be about 10 minutes, watched them seat 4 tables ahead of us, had to stand (no place to sit) for over 30 minutes. Finally sat at table at 8:05.

Kotta's TDF roll is one of the best in all of the metroplex. We also enjoyed their J-Bomb appetizer and make a meal out of the appetizer and roll. We drive from inside the loop to Kotta to enjoy their offerings.

Fresh ingredients, beautifully presented, with some unusual menu items such as the Kotta Tower, which your server mixes for you tableside. I enjoyed the Kotta roll featuring crab, red snapper, tuna, avocado, green onion, and sprouts. The roll is wrapped in cucumber flesh coiled around the filling several times. Each medallion is then topped with tobiko and drizzled with spicy ponzu. The cucumber peel is used as a decorative garnish in what is truly an outstanding presentation. I also enjoyed the fatty salmon and escolar nigiri; each item included two pieces instead of the usual one we get back home in St. Louis.

My dining companion had the spicy tuna roll and the aforementioned tower, which is composed of avocado, rice, crab, spicy tuna, three types of caviar, and a special sauce. She was equally delighted with the presentation and taste.

The only item that disappointed us was the edamame appetizer. The edamame were good, but the outer husks did not have the strings removed and were quite tough, making it difficult to open them to get to the tender beans inside. They were nicely seasoned with coarse salt, though.

The bar knows their way around a vodka martini, too, and my companion's hot saki was very hot indeed!

Altogether a very good meal and I definitely would return when I'm in Dallas again.

Kotta is a favorite for me and my wife. It is a consistent choice for date night. In fact, our first date was here. The food is always fresh, always tasty. The wait staff is always friendly. The Guns ‘N Roses Roll is a must for anyone trying Kotta for the first time. I highly, highly recommend it for lunch or dinner!!!!
