Exceeded my insanely high expectations.
We have eaten here several times, but never their omakase (chef's tasting menu)
We will likely be getting that again in the future as everything on it was absolutely fantastic and it was a great variety.
It was a wonderful time. The sensory journey the chef took my partner and me on was extraordinary. All of the dishes were so well thought out and beautifully prepared it was almost a tragedy to eat then. They truly were little works of art incorporating senses and aspects of dining I would not have imagined. All of the dishes had some motif of flowers or fresh greens which really set them apart from other Japanese restaurant experiences and definitely set the tone for a valentine’s dinner. All in all outstanding food and service I am more than pleased and grateful to have found this establishment.
Valentine's Day dinner Omakase style. It was outstanding.
Delicious Japanese food, just be prepared to drop some cash.
We had the 8-course chef's menu for Valentine's Day, it was $100 apiece plus a $50 sake pairing (we just got one pairing). None of the 8 "courses" were more than 3 bites. It was all delicious and beautifully prepared, but after 8 courses we were both still hungry. We had to order a couple of rolls and nigiri off of their main menu just to feel like we had a full meal.
We added four cocktails @ $12 apiece, they were phenomenal. Our total bill was around $430 for the two of us, which was more than I expected on spending. The bill came with a 20% grat already added in. Good thing it was V-Day to help justify it all!
The restaurant decided to do a prix fix menu for Valentine’s Day and not offer their regular menu. That’s totally fine- if you notify people! It wasn’t fun sitting down to find out my only option to order from was the $100/person chefs tasting menu. I saw several other diners leave after discovering the price tag and only option.
Our food was very good and the service was outstanding. Surprisingly the wine and cocktails were not good. The wine tasted cheap and the cocktail was watered down.
Tried the chef’s tasting menus. Good tastes but slow service.
Second visit. Food was as delicious as it was the first time.
Celebrated an amazing birthday meal for my boyfriend at Soto. Would recommend the truffle oil edamame as an appetizer, foie gras truffle sushi, uni sushi, and of course their amazing matcha tiramisu for dessert. I don’t like fried rolls much, I’m more of a raw tuna person. This place is great if you’re into raw sushi. I’m glad there’s a nice sushi restaurant up north so I don’t have to go all the way downtown for quality sushi. The service was on point, our waitress noticed we ate a ton of ginger to cleanse our palates and she made sure we never ran out. Our cups were always filled and the cups didn’t smell fishy like some restaurants (I have a sensitive nose). Great for special occasions or if you prefer the finer things.
