It was my first time going and my experience was AMAZING! Service & food was beyond what I expected.
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!
Food was INCREDIBLE!!
Mother’s Day dinner
Delicious Mother’s Day dinner! Love the tapas concept. Tasted a bit of everything. The Duck and crispy brussel sprouts were my personal favorites.
we celebrated Mothers day and had a great time. Service was excellent and the food was great. I highly recommend it. You also can't beat the view.
We've enjoyed reunions with dear friends, birthday & Mother's Day celebrations at Takato and will continue to do so. Lovely venue with excellent service!
Amazing food great view food presentation was excellent and tasted delicious
Beautiful views! Amazing service.
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.
Everything was amazing.. fresh... delicious.. service wise Amanda was great from beginning till the end...
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.
Very welcoming and amazing atmosphere. The food was impeccable, I was trying not to go overboard and order more. Will recommend and go back with family soon.
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.
Food was absolutely delicious! Our waiter was fantastic
Maybe add some daily specials to the menu? Also more classic drinks like frozen margarita, sangria? Still love the place!
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.
Would have given a 5 rating if they didn’t allow pets. Didn’t like the large dog next to our table
Authentic and great quality.
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.
Outstanding experience and dinner !!
Server was trying to oversell. Only a few options for gluten free meals
good, tasty, fresh
Always great. 😊
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.
Very nice restaurant with ocean wew very good and fast service absolutely nice and fresh food
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.
The food at Takato was amazing! We went for my birthday and everything from start to finish was delish. Great portion sizes, tasty flavors, great ambience. Would highly recommend sharing and trying a bunch of different things!
The food is amazing every time I go to this restaurant. Not only is the food great but the presentation is beautiful. Love this restaurant.
Excellent food! Very pleased!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Our waiter was the sweetest man and the cocktails are top notch.
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.
I been there many times
Always vibrant atmosphere
Excellent drinks and food
Birthday dinner for my partner. Exceptional.
The views are great and the food outstanding
