Had reservations but ended up sitting at the bar. Great ambiance on the patio with the ocean and beach in view. Service at the bar was also great. Sushi was very high quality although very pricey. Will return for sure, nice date spot

We went for a dining experience. Unfortunately the music was so loud it was difficult to have a nice conversation. For four of us the bill was $600, for that kind of money I’d like to enjoy the meal. Food was great but very overpriced given the ambiance.

It was awesome! The only comment (and def not major) was that the mixed drinks are pretty weak. I would recommend this place to everyone!

Out of this world food!!! The freshest sushi I’ve ever eaten. It was pretty expensive, but worth it for the food quality. Our waiter, Pavlo was extremely helpful and just a genuinely nice person.

We sat outside for happy hour. Had the rock shrimp-delicious, gyoza-bland, angry chicken-a bit overcooked but yummy. A salmon roll-delicious, and a tuna roll also good. Sake and wine choices are great too!

The food here good. And I'm willing to pay a higher price for quality. Service was excellent by Francesca. We were lunching there. The Conrad's landscape contractor chose the lunch hour as the time to run those cursed blowers just outside the outdoor porch. Otherwise a good choice for fine yet casual dining.

Amazing food, service and ambience. One of the best Kimchi rice I’ve ever had. Drinks by our favorite bartender, Pedro, simply the best. Awesome service by Mateo. Great conversation with manager, Sam. Can’t wait to be back. Your forever grateful client Jackie Figueroa and company.

“Disgusting” sums up the incredibly poor service and experience.

Booked a table for the family to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The waitress was ridiculous in terms of poor quality of service, poor attitude and incompetence. I kept a calm face to avoid disturbing my family, even as I watched a circus of service unfold.

The focus is clearly on selling you as many bottles of water as possible given that they charge eight dollars per bottle. For three adults and three kids, they immediately opened four bottles of water, then promptly mixed up the sparkling and still, and managed to spill half of it.

The table was dirty, and despite pointing it out twice, the very perfunctory cleaning did little to make us comfortable.

On a separate note, I wonder why they can’t afford tablecloths …

What should have been a pleasant experience was an exercise in patience and quietly tolerating extremely poor attitude because I did not want to ruin my daughter’s celebration.

The funniest part was, despite terrible service, and automatically adding 20% gratuity to the bill, she had the temerity to ask me if I would like to double the gratuity to 40%.

I don’t mind paying for service or for quality of food, but I do mind receiving neither. When you go out, you expect service and a pleasant experience neither of which we received, nor would we expect to receive if we went back.

Takato is a fusion restaurant between Japanese and Korean and had some interesting dishes. We had the short rib tacos, duck bun, sea bass fried rice and angry chicken. The tacos were favorable but small. The fried rice didn’t really have much fish in it that we could see. Decent food but overpriced but I guess it is expected in the tourist district. Overall enjoyable experience but not value for money.

We are staying at the Conrad ( which is amazing BTW), and decided to have dinner here for our last night. So happy we did! Wow! It was amazing. So good you don’t want to stop eating. Had Saki, sushi, and kimche. All were amazing. Restaurant is beautiful, on the water. Our waitress was so wonderful and very personable. Definitely must try!

I visit Takato’s often and always enjoy the food, drinks and ambiance. If I had one concern, it would be that they are now imposing a 1.5 hour table time limit on reservations for a parties of 2 (not sure of time limits for parties greater than 2). The restaurant has a tapas feel (grazing, food meant to be shared,etc) and the idea of stopping great conversation, food and drinks at 1.5 hours is disheartening.

Excellent food, service and ambience outdoors. Quality and presentation were excellent, though the sushi/sashimi items tend to be a tad pricey but if high quality. Food comes out as prepared which can make for a rather quick succession of plates and can result in a rushed meal.

The service was excellent. The person who took care of us was amazing. He checked on us multiple times. He went above and beyond to make our anniversary memorable. I wish I would of written down his name. The food is amazing. Smaller portions but it allows you to try more of the options they have. Overall great experience.
