We're now addicted to Koto and go once a week. The hibachi experience is great and we have met some cool people sitting with us. The chefs do a great entertaining job. My husband and I always order the Koto House Special for two which is chicken, scallops, shrimp, filet mignon and lobster tail. We always have enough leftover for... More

The food was great, but I had to wait for the food to be ready. They told me 15 minutes, and took over 30 minutes to get my food and walk out the door. I would go back.

Koto promotes itself as a Japanese Steakhouse but don't miss the opportunity to sample some of the freshes and most imaginative sushi this side of Japan. Our first visit last month was to celebrate my grandsons second birthday. We sat at the hibachi grill and enjoyed a typical, very good hibachi dinner with the usual show put on by the... More

I went to Koto a few times when it first opened - even had a party at one of the hibachi tables and it was great - but I went back last week and the filth made me turn around and walk out. I was shown to a booth with a piece of food on the seat and 2 more... More

The service is good and the chefs are entertaining but the food is not the best. Its bland and it all tastes the same. They use the same seasoning on everything. Make sure to order your steak at least medium well or you are going to get raw meat. I didnt think the food was worth the money.

I went here with a large group of friends. It was good, only the waiters speak limited English so had difficulty understanding my requests. The price is maybe a tad high, not terribly overpriced. They have an elaborate birthday celebration if you come on or near your birthday, including disco ball lights with singing and a free Japanese ice cream!

The food was fantastic and the chef was amazing. He put on a great show with the knives and food flying everywhere.

We had reservations, and were seated on time. The cook was entertaining and fun. I had never been here before, but had heard it was very good from friends. Well......it was very good until I tasted the food. It was very average. The flavors were bland and everything tasted similar. Maybe my expectations were built up too much from other... More

I have been there twice with my girlfriend. The food was very good at a reasonable price. The service was good, but close to being "too good" in that we were asked too many times, "Is everything alright?" by multiple people. It was like they had too many people working with not enough to do.... still ... it was better... More

The wife and I were in town from Phoenix for my granddaughters HS graduation. After the graduation at Tanglewood we were invited to dinner at Koto's. There was reservations made for 17 of us for 7 and because they could not get the hibachi tables cleared we had to wait until close to 8 to get seated. The hostess was... More
