This Japanese steak house is great! The kids love the show the chef has while he is cooking. I will suggest this place to go and of course my kids want to go back.

What can I say. This restaurant is lovely. Our waiter was attentive and great and the sushi was delicious. The atmosphere is also very nice. Would definitely visit this restaurant again.

I ordered the swordfish and filet Mignon. Everything was excellent except the swordfish. It tasted spoiled and that night I got diarrhea. I know it was the fish. I would not come back to Kotos as I found it to be very overpriced. There are many other hibachi restaurants that are better in the area.

We come here on an annual basis as a "go to" place for birthday celebrations for 1 or more of the family. Tonight we celebrated my grandson's 12th birthday there as it is his favorite. The staff is attentive and the chef friendly and entertaining at the hibachi grill. The menu since we were there last has changed to include... More

Menu had a great selection with everything from Sushi to complete meals. I am not a fan of sushi but the California Rolls that came with my meal were great. I had seafood tempura after having a hard time choosing. My companions were very happy with their selections as well. The price was right and service excellent! I don't live... More

I ate dinner here while staying next door at the Hotel Indigo. The sushi was good and made fresh to order. My only complaint was the price. I had three sushi rolls and a glass of water. My bill, before tip, was $33.

Friends invited us to join them at one of their favorite restaurants: Koto We sat at a Hibachi table (reserved ahead) and enjoyed watching the chef juggle his implements and set flames erupting on the Hibachi. My friend and I had steak; our husbands had chicken. The food was flavorful and tender. On a previous visit to a Japanese restaurant... More

The best sushi in the area! but the drinks are EXPENSIVE. It was my first experience at a hibachi grill and I've yet to find a place that does as good of a job with presentation, service/atmosphere and quality.

We visited 8/4/14. After having a crazy unexpected day we tried something new and went here for dinner. My son wanted Hibachi and we thought we could all use some enjoyment at that moment. It was 6pm and there were 3 adults and 1 child. We were seated immediately. Our drink order was taken immediately and when drinks were delivered... More
