Food is excellent, congratulations to the Chef David! The waitress was smiley, but she seemed like she was kind of distracted, I asked for a wifi code as I saw a signal in my phone, I asked two times the waitress and she finally answer me that the internet was not open for public, so sad... When we were about... More

This has the best Japanese food in Springfield! My family loves Nakatos. The sauces they serve are better than any other Japanese restaurants I have tried. The soup is delicious and the ginger dressing on the salad is amazing. You won't be disappointed. Food is consistently delicious.

We like to just go sit at the Sushi bar when its just the two of us. We always sit in front of Ramil who is a SuChef. He is the best. They even have a roll named after him and if you like something that is not raw and a little on the sweet side then you need to... More

Went out with the wife to this restaurant and had a great time. The seating is open to multiple parties, unless you go with a large group, but the Chef makes the show/experience even no matter who you sit with. The food was very good and the presentation is entertaining and enjoyable. Cost was very reasonable for what you get,... More

First time visiting Nakatos after reading the reviews from here and also from friend who frequently visited, I decided to give it a shot. It was late at night and I decided to grab some as a carry out. First impression over the phone wasn't that good. The hostess I spoke with kinda rude, and didn't seem like she knew... More

Who doesn't enjoy dinner and a show? Nakato's is just that. Evey time I have gone the chef has been well trained and very personable. One even remembers us, and we maybe get to go 2-3 times per year. We have never sat at the sushi boat bar, only the grill. I usually get the New York Strip and my... More

The food was delicious, and the waitress and waiters were very courteous and helpful. The boats going around at sushi Bar on water is cute. Will come back.

He has been there for years, and we love to have him as our chef. Steak was wonderful. Service was wonderful. Steve was wonderful. Had a great time and will be back. Much... More
