Favorite restaurant in AC, let the server create the menu for you! It’s a one of a kind experience. Our server Sam was awesome!

I have to say we expected more. We love the food at Kuro, but this visit was subpar and not indicative of the type of dining expectations set forth by the restaurant. In a restaurant serving maybe 60-70% of its capacity, we waited 45 minutes for drinks and soup. No one came to take our menus. No one came for anything. We never saw a manager even though we expressed disappointment at waiting forty five minutes for a beer and a glass of wine. I actually ended up going to the bar outside of the restaurant and purchasing drinks and bringing them back inside. I walked past three hostesses and a number of staff and no one questioned why I’d walk out of the restaurant to get drinks. The food was ok. Not worth this visit. Very disappointing.

The service from our waiter was excellent & the food was good, but there were two things we found disturbing while we ate at the sushi bar where we could see clearly into the kitchen:

1) the way the grill tools were cleaned was to toss them into a utensil pail in the sink with the water running on them. Not only did this not clean the tools properly, but in the two hours we were there, the faucet was running water at full force. So incredibly wasteful.

2) the grill cooks handled the food with their bare hands. Not only did they skewer meat without gloves, but they handled raw sushi with their hands, so the bacteria would not even get a chance to be cooked off, because the food was served raw with whatever germs it received from their bare hands.

I hope the health department, or at least management reads this, because this restaurant’s practices are both wasteful and unsanitary and need to be changed.

Beautiful restaurant!! Food was outstanding! We ate earlier then normal because we had a concert to attend so it wasn’t as energetic yet but it was starting to get crowded as we were almost finished. The waiter was good with all his suggestions for us.

Amazing! Everything we tried was delicious! So well prepared, came out hot and the presentation was top notch! Love the small plate idea, get to taste many things. We had the edamame which was arrived piping hot and was delicious. The Waygu tacos were next and were tiny but amazing! The chicken momo, beef Shishito and pork belly skewers were all delicious. The Chicken Amadare was so tender and perfectly cooked. My bf said the tuna roll was incredible with fresh wasabi and ginger and the Waygu Donburi (pictures) was out of this world. Service was excellent, our waitress kept on top of a food allergy and drink refills. Oh and speaking of drinks, the Shi is amazing! Blackberry jam infused tequila with ginger and pineapple juice omg delish! Would definitely recommend Kuro and can’t wait to go again!

A group of us took our friend here for her 30th birthday dinner. We didn’t know what to expect as it was our first time but the waiter explained everything we needed to know. The food was amazing! Spicy seafood soup warmed me right up as it was a very cold night. The short rib was tender and falling right off the bone. We loved everything we ate! I would definitely revisit!

The server was very friendly and attentive. The food is outstanding and very unique! The desserts and cocktails delicious too! Worth the 2 hour drive! Only rated service 4 stars due to entree being brought out before salad due to a back-up at the salad station. Highly recommend Kuro. We will be back!

Food was delicious mostly. My favorite was the tuna with truffle tofu

My complaint would be with service. 6:30 reservation- we weren’t sat until 6:45. We were told by hostess we’d be taken care of by manager for our wait. (We weren’t taken care of. Our server was mediocre at best - never checked on us or our meal - got dessert after inquiring where 1 dish was - that’s when we were informed they ran out of it. Would have liked to have known sooner so I could have substituted- but we were late for concert at that point.

Would give place a second chance on a non concert night - if I could avoid our server and be given the booth I requested when I made the reservation 4 months prior to eating there.

Six of us had a great time and great food. We had the waiter choose the menu for us ( that’s available there) and between the 6 of us not one was disappointed. Quite the opposite, We probably had 8-10 different foods and one was as amazing as the next. So delicious, interesting and fun! I ate foods I’d never order and loved them all as well as my friends. Kuro is on the top of my list for sure.

Top notch new style Japanese in a glamorous open kitchen setting. Maybe some of the best sushi I’ve ever had...perfectly constructed and fresh. Sea bass was also one of the most delicious versions I’ve had.
