A very pleasant way to spend an evening, having an interesting dinner while looking at the ocean.Our favorite dishes were the oyster shooter and California uni. Would not recommend wagu dish ($42) because after everything is mixed in with the meat it basically tastes like poke. The base could be anything and it's not worth paying the price for what is considered the best beef around. The angry chicken is a bit spicy but in a good way also sweet; if that's your thing, you'll love it. Service was quite good; we had a lovely time with our waiter.

The food Quality has gone down considerably . We normally get the shrimp fried rice which was always delicious but yesterday it was off - the flavor was overwhelmingly fishy & not in a good way! The duck bao buns we’re also not good - my friend got sick on them .
The crispy tuna was the only decent thing we had . They must have changed the chef because the food quality and preparation has gone downhill . The clientele was definitely different . Unfortunately we will not return.

Duck bao bun is amazing , I’d go back just to have that. Wavy gyoza was a little too greasy. Sushi was so fresh and delicious. 100% would come back.

Amazing experience. Liz the manager suggested a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to go with our food, she brought the chef Taka to our table who show us the Omakase room that will open pretty soon.
Can’t wait to be back.

Once again Takato does not disappoint. From the host to the service and of course the food, this is a must visit for anyone on holiday or living in the area.
I’m going to continue to come back until I’ve made my way through the menu.
I HIGHLY recommend Wagyu Goyza app and Sea Bass Fried Rice.

What a treat!
I've heard so many great things about Takato that we had to try it. And we are so glad we did. What an awesome experience!
The menu was extraordinary. We started off with delicious cocktails; Bonsai Mule and Shikoku Margarita.
Our server Pablo was so friendly and knowledgeable to make our "date" night extra special.
We enjoyed our Sushi appetizers especially the Negi Toro. The restaurant encouraged us to share dishes. We did. Our mains were the Wagyu Skirt steak and the Short Rib Jabache. Both were excellent. We enjoyed two fabulous deserts including the Sushi Ice Cream.
I've traveled all over the world including Japan several times and I don't remember Sushi to be this good.
