    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.

    Everything was amazing but if I had to choose top 3 menu items it would be short rib tacos, angry chicken, and hot stone wagyu, and ice cream sushi for dessert. If you're ever in Ft. Lauderdale you don't want to miss this experience and cuisine.

    The setting and the quality of the fish are both excellent. Service is professional and timely. It was a busy Tuesday evening and at times it seemed that our server was pressed into juggling multiple tables at the same time. Very friendly crew throughout. Definitely look forward multiple repeat visits.

    No words! My mouth was left wanting more... Walking in... all I can say is gorgeous! The grass wall and Takato with pink flowers sets a vibe. A gorgeous bar in the middle if you decide to have drinks before dinner. I made reservations, so we had an amazing table outside to look out at the ocean . Our waiter was super nice and very helpful with the menu and suggestions. We started out with a seaweed salad, the house salad and the crispy tuna ... the flavors were amazing. We ordered a lot of sushi, a few rolls and items the waiter suggested. I have to say it was amazing. With how busy the restaurant was for a Saturday night, I was impressed by how fast the food came out. The presentation was amazing and was picture perfect. Dessert is a must.... The the sushi ice cream and a chocolate lava cake which had green tea infused. I don't know what to tell you... except, YOU MUST GO! I know there is so much more on the menu I am dying to try and brunch looks amazing. It's on my "go back too" list.

    We had a great experience at Takato. The service was great. And the food was good. Only a couple things made me take it down a star. The bartender was perfectly attentive. We ordered sake which was chilled per our taste and served quickly. We also ordered edamame at the bar which was steamed to canned green began level. One of the reasons for the 4 stars. At the table ou server was amazing. He was quick and present when we needed him. This is a talent many waiters will never discover. Our food Was delicious. We sampled a few items from the menu. Once dinner was over I used the bathroom and the wallpaper was peeling away from the wall and the doors were damaged. Otherwise the experience here was really great and we would come again.
