    This was our 2nd time dining here. It was a beautiful night so we sat on the patio. Service was amazing and the food was delicious. We had tuna tatare, spicy tuna roll the Chilean sea bass and the seared scallops. Amazing!

    After a long flight and drive to our hotel, we walked over and got an outdoor table for two. The server explained that he could simply bring a variety of food based upon our desires and asked our budget. The food came quickly which was great and it was all fantastic. Every course was unique and delicious and the cocktails were superb. It was around $400 for the two of us and we would highly recommend.

    Very good food, although the fish portion was a bit small. Also, although the service is professional and friendly, there is no pacing between courses so the meal can be served faster than fast food, which is not appropriate for a fine dining restaurant.

    My absolute favorite restaurant in Ft Lauderdale. Everything on the menu tastes amazing. And they have the freshest/best sushi in all of the South FL (took me forever to find the place that doesn't serve gigantic rolls filled with cream cheese and tempura.) Very attentive and caring waiters Perfectly balanced cocktails Great ambiance- upscale casual but without the pretence of some well known expensive hotel restaurants (that still serve mediocre food.) I am not doing myself any favors; the reservations are already not easy to come by, but do yourself a favor and have a meal there. Great for couples as well as for groups.

    most over priced sushi that I’ve ever had and we’ve eaten in sushi bars, and restaurants globally. Let’s just say it was an unbelievable amount and quality, that would’ve been fine but It was just “OK “. $36 for two pieces of UNI? Crazy. We could have had 10X better sushi and fed 2X the amount of people for what we paid at Sugarfish in Los angeles. Do not recommend for true sushi lovers.

    So first of all, the food is amazing. The duck bao bun, the fried rice, the sushi, the edamame,... everything was extremely well prepared, tasty, elegant and refined. If you like asian cuisine, this place is a must try. You are sitting in front of A1A, and so that means that traffic is passing by, and there are loud (and I mean race cars with modified exhausts loud) driving by. This is not so bad that I would say it made my experience horrible, but it is something you should consider. Maybe the inside space is more suited for a quite atmosphere. Service was great, attentive, and proactive. Overall we would definitely recommend!

    We expected that we would be enjoying some great food and service due to the reviews we read and was sorely disappointed. First, the waitress said our food would come all at once, it didn't. We received the Kim Chi tacos, which were delicious, then the Angry chicken which was not good and could be obtained at any subpar Chinese takeaway. The Sliders were okay, nothing to write home about. The drink my wife ordered came with a huge piece of ice which melted the flavoring of the drink, terrible! Who does that? In fact, drinks aboard a cruise ship are WAY tastier! The veggie fried rice, loaded with mushrooms, cheaply made and overpriced. The heirloom salad was good. The desert was the WORSE! The portion was made for a two-year-old and cost an arm and a leg. I cannot begin to tell you just how small the molten cake, ice cream and sauce were... All around, I would not encourage anyone to visit this pretentious, overpriced eatery. Go to Steak 954 it is worth the money and the meal is really delicious. Takato is not worth it. In fact, we suspected the reviews must have been written by the owner's family members. YUCK. Save your money! Again, DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY HERE.
