Takato has been outstanding every time we have visited. The food is consistently some of the best I have had in Fort Lauderdale. The music and vibe of the restaurant is on point. Beautifully decorated and fun to watch the sushi chefs at work. The staff including Alex, Paul and bartender Johan have always made our experiences over the top amazing! Some must try dishes are the Hot Hamachi, duck bao bun, tataki salmon, and the A5 Wagyu. Looking forward to more amazing meals here!

Delicious Mother’s Day dinner! Love the tapas concept. Tasted a bit of everything. The Duck and crispy brussel sprouts were my personal favorites.

Great food but not for the sushi, which was fairly bland and not a great presentation. Service was very slow for certain food items, but they tasted great. Overall, it’s a fun date night place and food is great. Just wouldn’t view it as the go to sushi joint.

Although we waited a little past our reservation time in order to secure an outside table (which was requested but could not be guaranteed), it was well worth the wait. We had a beautiful table closest to the water. Excellent service by Jaime and just delicious food that arrived promptly. Will be back. Great night.

One of the best sushi/fresh fish meals we have had. It's small plate, family style portions. It's great because you can have a taste of most on the menu. My boyfriend said this was the best meal for-play he has every had. I wish we were locals because Takato would be a place we would visit multiple times a year. We were able to sit outside with an ocean view and our service was great. Highly recommend!

The waiter was great. Super attentive without being annoying. The food was good but we didn’t love it. The location is the draw; it’s beautiful and right off the beach.

After checking in for a 9pm reservation we waited 40 minutes to be seated. After I mentioned this to the hostess she called the GM. We were seated immediately and he bought a round of drinks and informed the server of our issue. Outside of that the experience was amazing!! Service and food were fabulous!! Great job turning a bad beginning into a great night! Thank you.

Our waiter suggested a tasting menu which he curated for us ---taking into consideration our preferences which turned out to be wonderful. Small plates to be shared are placed in center of table one at a time. The restaurant is quite the scene with lots of people watching. We were seated inside---although you could talk to each other, it was noisy.

For the first time in my life the service was so horribly bad, our meal was free per the restaurant manager. I have also never written a review like this but it is warranted especially since it was my wife’s 50th birthday dinner that they had known about beforehand.

Excited to go here for a birthday celebration but the service was REALLY not good. We had to ask twice for everything, every dish, every drink, it was really aggravating tbh. The guy was really clueless and obviously disinterested in our table! Do t think we would return.

We reserved outside at 5:45 and it was perfect .Also, It is beautiful inside! Inside by 7 pm- it was packed and energetic, so noisy with people waiting for tables etc-LOUD!
Very popular and it’s obvious why.
We truly had a wonderful and fun experience. Highly recommend. Here are a few little things I’d point out for a review, but wouldn’t stop us from going back next time:
No descriptions of each item on the menu. Server great but has to describe every item you ask about- you don’t know what’s what other than” Korean dishes are small and meant to share in the middle of the table” . Few were actually small- and we over ordered. Beautiful presentations and we love sushi and Thai, Korean, fusion foods. 2 complaints for the restaurant: #1- get better disposable chopsticks! Those are the worst, cheapest and are awful to use- I’ve had these with my local take out orders and they have much better disposables too. Such beautiful food doesn’t deserve those . #2- the Wasabi- I love wasabi good wasabi. Theirs was tasteless and a only tiny bit on the plate with the sushi- not enough and no taste or heat. I actually took the hot peppers from other appetizers , chopped them and mix into wasabi . Sushi needs that extra umph particularly with low sodium soy, which they serve, thank you.- appreciated that.
#3- The only food that was a flop was the crunchy calamari - it seriously looked and tasted like it had sat around a long time, by the look,taste and texture, no crunch- it was a disappointment. Other than that, server was great. A fun night , we enjoyed ourselves and would go back again . I’ll bring our own chopsticks next time. Outside seating best for 1:1 dinner date.

Jordan was great. Meal went a little fast but I think this was because of the two kitchens (hot and cold), which caused the food to come up quickly. The bing sui dessert was UNREAL.

Beautiful lunch setting across from the beach. Outside tables were spread out. Service was off to a bad start. After being seated by the hostess, it took 15 minutes before anyone approached our table. There were servers around but totally ignoring us. Once that was resolved, the food was freshly prepared and very good. Loved the duck bao buns with maple syrup which had some heat too. The crispy Brussels sprouts and the short rib tacos were delicious.
