Yamato is a fun Asian fusion restaurant along the water in Fort Lauderdale. Menu is creative and food was delicious! Our server was very helpful and attentive. Definitely worth a visit!

Takato is our favorite dining spot in Fort Lauderdale. The Food is always consistently delicious- Favorites include the spicy edamame, crunchy tuna, hamachi, spicy tuna roll , and shrimp tempura. The service is always impeccable , and you can’t beaut the outdoor patio overlooking Fort Laud beach. It’s a well run establishment.

Staying at the Conrad and this was our first dining experience in Fort Lauderdale.
Food was more than good!
Tram tried to accommodate seating situation that may have resulted in overbookings.
We did get a seat on an outer patio which actually worked out well, given the hyper scene within the overall restaurant.
Bartenders were less than hospitable and actually wondered if there was alcohol in my cocktail - never a good system to your upcoming dining experience.
We understand that Covid impacted hiring, but there has to be some level of management oversight.
Overall, food left us with a good final experience but would hesitate to come back.

Waiter was indifferent, food was good but the menu is scattered. In presenting the menu, the waiter’s favorites were all of the highest priced options. They weren’t the best options either, as we were with a friend who goes here all the time!

We asked for a dessert menu, and the waiter quickly gave us 3 options (there are many more)

The thumping music inside feels like a dance party-and outside you get serenaded by traffic and motorcycles -take your pick!

Kinda disappointing.
Food was just ok. Did tasting menu for 100 bucks a person and left hungry! Does not live up to hype. Add drinks and tip, there are much better places.

Never had Japanese/Korean fusion, but now that I've had it I really want to again! To start the drinks are very unique and they taste very good. The food also is unique and the flavors are outstanding. I would highly recommend the rock shrimp appetizer, the soft shell crab sushi roll and even the edamame was really tasty and unique. But what made it special was the service, our server Tali was exceptional, she made great recommendations and was super attentive!

Food and service were excellent and the many choices of Sake mind-boggling.

It was very noisy, in fact conversation was mss as de difficult because of the din and we ate outside. I imagine eating inside it would be deafening.

Prices were expensive, but not unreasonable.

Very loud touristy place (Hotel Conrad) with overpriced sushi, Korean dishes are more interesting thought...
If you're covid cautious stay away as they don't follow any advisories.
