Granted, we went on New Year's Eve and the restaurant was very busy. But the maître d' was in a foul mood, we got crowded around a hibachi table with 2 other families of 4, and although the portions were generous, the food was only ok. If Koto was the only hibachi place in town, I might go back, but... More

I've been to Koto many times - mostly for lunch. I've had items off the menu and have also dined Hibachi. The menu is extensive offering many different varities of sushi, rolls, shushimi, dinner and lunch options. The fish is always fresh and the portions generous. The hibachi is alway very good. The last time I was with friends from... More

If you're going to dine in the Capital Region and you're expecting quality, this is one of the few options you truly have! KOTO will treat you extremely well, and the food will leave you feeling like you've been personally catered to!

took my family to this restaurant to try something different. It was a great experience and the service was great. We took the Hibashi and we were entertained and the food was of good quality.

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.

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
