    Nice ambiance and view onto the spa. Very good food and well displayed. Unfortunatley, the music (bass) was WAY too loud for a normal conversation. We asked to turn it down but that did not happen, and we went elsewhere for dessert and coffee.

    I was ecstatic to dine at KaTO for my birthday but was unfortunately let down. The bar staff didn't know generic cocktails and the sangria was just grenadine and wine. The food was a mix of great and meh; pork belly bao and wagyu gyoza were great but the fried rice and sushi ice cream were subpar. Service was quite slow and we spent much longer than anticipated waiting. Some parties in the dining room were far too loud and ruined the experience further. We were also shocked to see that a restaurant that presents itself as high end and charges accordingly doesn't provide real chopsticks but gives the wooden kind you get with takeout and set our table with dirty dishes.

    Restaurant KatoResponded on August 31, 2022Hello Obsidian, we are sorry to hear about your experience. We take your comments seriously so that we can continually improve the customer experience we want to provide.

    Nous avons souper au KATO pour célébrer notre anniversaire de mariage...un excellent souper, la nourriture était exquise, le service un peu désorganisé par contre et l'ambiance correcte. Un immense MERCI à la propriétaire pour son cadeau dessert surprise...une très belle attention. Nous y retournerons c'est certain!

    Overall it was ok. The server wasnt great, nice but not great. As a chef myself, I'm fully aware that food costs are going up constantly but i found it very hard to justify $38 for 4oz of salmon and a cup of basmati rice. The profit margins on MSP must be so high. Maybe to make up for the fact that the place was empty on a Friday night.

    The food was very good. However, the service was mediocre. The new server was not helped in her training and did not serve the sauce on the little plates and did not provide the orders as requested. One certain plate was left on the table without being mixed as required and we had to request some action from the cook or server. We know that it is hard to get help. However, the cost of eating there commands good food and good service.
