Breakfast was very average at best and inconsistent with the quality choices for dinner. Service was non existent and we had to get up and find our server. We’ll try breakfast somewhere else given the prices did not match quality, service, or selection we expected.

First time here and it definitely won’t be the last. Amazing experience from the hostess to the servers to the food. When we arrived the place was packed and our reservation was a few minutes late. They offered us a glass of champagne to sit and wait For the 10 minutes until our table was ready. This was Walmart the 10 minute wait, the food was absolutely delicious. The mixed drinks were awesome. We had the Seabass, edamame, crispy tuna, brussels sprouts and everything was delicious. Call vibe to the restaurant And we can see why it was so popular. Great ambience, servers were great, And the food was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Exceeded expectations! Everything was top notch. Extremely well run restaurant in every aspect. The manager Paul went out of his way to make sure our party felt comfortable. Our waiter Mateo was very knowledgeable and asked just the right questions to be able to make the perfect recommendation for our party of 3. We will be back 😊

I love Takato and would give it 5 Starts, except they have terrible club music playing while you are sitting and looking at the beach eating elegant food.
I wish they would turn down the music a bit and play something a bit calmer.

The food, service and location are awesome....if you like club music while you are dining....you will love this place.

Takato is our favorite dining spot in Fort Lauderdale. The Food is always consistently delicious- Favorites include the spicy edamame, crunchy tuna, hamachi, spicy tuna roll , and shrimp tempura. The service is always impeccable , and you can’t beaut the outdoor patio overlooking Fort Laud beach. It’s a well run establishment.

Staying at the Conrad and this was our first dining experience in Fort Lauderdale.
Food was more than good!
Tram tried to accommodate seating situation that may have resulted in overbookings.
We did get a seat on an outer patio which actually worked out well, given the hyper scene within the overall restaurant.
Bartenders were less than hospitable and actually wondered if there was alcohol in my cocktail - never a good system to your upcoming dining experience.
We understand that Covid impacted hiring, but there has to be some level of management oversight.
Overall, food left us with a good final experience but would hesitate to come back.

Waiter was indifferent, food was good but the menu is scattered. In presenting the menu, the waiter’s favorites were all of the highest priced options. They weren’t the best options either, as we were with a friend who goes here all the time!

We asked for a dessert menu, and the waiter quickly gave us 3 options (there are many more)

The thumping music inside feels like a dance party-and outside you get serenaded by traffic and motorcycles -take your pick!

Kinda disappointing.
Food was just ok. Did tasting menu for 100 bucks a person and left hungry! Does not live up to hype. Add drinks and tip, there are much better places.

Never had Japanese/Korean fusion, but now that I've had it I really want to again! To start the drinks are very unique and they taste very good. The food also is unique and the flavors are outstanding. I would highly recommend the rock shrimp appetizer, the soft shell crab sushi roll and even the edamame was really tasty and unique. But what made it special was the service, our server Tali was exceptional, she made great recommendations and was super attentive!
