Great lunch spot. They offer a way better alternative to the good ole' Bento Box. You simply cannot beat the salad dressing. Period.

price was a bitt to high for food; place could use some updating, walls marked up, cushion where we sat was torn, little out dated.

Good flavor combinations overall and excellent miso soup, but the food and cocktails were overpriced for what you got, compared to other quality sushi restaurants in central Texas. Service was a bit slow but most likely due to short staffing rather than our server’s fault.

Their fish is great. Some unique spins on food but for the better. Service as absolutely top notch. It almost felt like they had a mic in the lamps and they could hear everything I was telling my wife (ie I'm going to leave this here for a diet coke refill, or I wish they'd give us new plates) and they'd come take care of it right away. Will definitely visit again.

I'm in love with this place. This was my first time here. I hadn't expected too much before I came but I'm totally persuaded then. The foods were so so good, the service was ridiculously excellent. It's not American Asian, it's close to authenticity. It's about quality not quantity, I love this the most. I love the aesthetic setting of every dish as well. The price is pretty good for such 5star foods and services. It's worth every penny. As I reserved a table for a birthday occasion, they gave me a sweet dessert for free! I'll come back again to try out their menu.

Service started out slow, we waited 10 minutes to be greeted as it seemed there was some confusion as to who our server was. Several servers, bussers and hosts walked by our table and no one seemed concerned that we hadn't been attended to. Once our server was aware, she was great and dinner was amazing. Could benefit from a manager on the floor to supervise and ensure guests are attended to properly.

Took a very long time to just get our drink order.
The food runner, girl with the shaved short hair, WAS ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. SHE IS THE RUDEST PERSON and has NO BUSINESS dealing with the public. She should be taking the trash out.
Brought our food out, slung our plates and bowls over to make room for our food, splashed soy sauce all over my husband sleeve, slammed our plates down, and walked away. She’s very lucky that’s all I’m going to say. Food is good though. Just make sure she’s not the one bringing it to your table.

We are somewhat new to the area and so far this is the best sushi place we have found! Food-wise it isn’t even close. We moved from Los Angeles and this sushi could easily rival restaurants in LA! Ambiance could be better but you don’t eat the ambiance 🤷🏻‍♂️ We had 6-7 menu items and ALL were excellent!

Out of ordinary Japanese restaurant.
Good quality with some products directly imported from Japan.
It was my birthday and I got a delicious Green tea tiramisu on the house. It was a lovely surprise !!

Took partner for Happy Hour since they have a Happy Hour food and drink menu - a great deal, all things considered. We were seated in the bar area which was nice since there was only one other table in this section plus bar seating for two. Can't say much for the ambiance of Soto but the food and service are way above average. Probably the best sushi we've found in Austin. Hard to believe this restaurant is in a strip mall in suburbia. Go for the Happy Hour menu and you won't be disappointed!

Not sure why seating at bar was unavailable when booking this reservation. We picked 1700 and place was empty for a Monday at that time. I would’ve preferred not to sit with my back to the aisle where everyone has to walk past to get to the restroom and next to kitchen. Food was delicious! Highly recommend the wagyu gyoza!

Soto is easily our favorite sushi restaurant in Austin. Yes, even better than Uchi, Uchiko, and Musashino. Still love those places, but Soto is just better. Very innovative rolls and dishes. Great drinks and desserts as well. We keep returning over and over and haven't been to those other places in 3+ years now.

I must say that I was not excited about going here, since all the downtown restaurants were booked, this was our last choice since we were planning a night downtown.

We were a few minutes early for our reservation, but the host had our table ready, even in a very busy restaurant. The drinks were great, sake, Plum Wine, and Kirin. The service we received was impeccable not only from our server but from every team member who came by.
The food was great, the food presentation was pretty.
Our table of 4 enjoyed so many great dishes that it was hard to decide which was our favorite. Through the evening we continued to order rolls and they were freshly prepared.
Soto definitely exceeded our expectations. I will definitely be back!
Thanks Soto!
