    Excellent restaurant. Food, location and view, service (Joshua) and ambiance are excellent, 5 stars for sure. Only thing was that food was brought out way too quickly and together. We were done in 50 minutes including dessert. I guess they had a lot of demand for table but took away from our experience.

    Excellent twist on Sushi and Japanese cuisine, if you like Japanese food and you are in or near Ft Lauderdale Takata should not be missed. Dont go starving because its Tapas style and very expensive. However, the tastes you will encounter will not soon be forgotten. Dan P.

    We had “The Experience “ which was a tasting menu which left us full and happy. Tallie (Tally? Talleigh?) was our server and she was amazingly attentive and well informed; without her care, it would not have been the same. The food was heavenly with layers of flavor and texture as well as color. Considering the quality and quantity of food, and the number of trips Tallie made to our table, the $150.00 cost per person seemed pretty reasonable.

    Seated outside but heaters not working so was very cold. Food came out so fast between apps and mains that no space on table and felt rushed. Then they forgot one of our mains and when I asked and said just cancel we are done they “found it in the kitchen” and brought it anyway. It’s a busy place with high end prices but not really a high end experience. Felt like an expensive TGIF honestly. Should really up their service game from people at front desk to how they are managing their floor. Food was decent.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants in the U.S. Let the wait staff guide you on dishes, but the fusion of Japanese and Korean is outstanding. The Duck Bao Bun cannot be matched and the Wagyu Hot Stone is fabulous. The staff is efficient but helpful and the views of the water are great.
