I have heard good things about this place, but didn't have that experience. From the beginning, the service was slow and inattentive. Drinks took forever -- we got out appetizers, which were ordered well after our drinks, before the drinks. For a restaurant that wasn't even half full, it should never have taken over 2 hours for dinner. On the... More

Went here for the first time on November 13, 2015, for a birthday dinner. There were 8 of us and we were seated in the loft area. Alone. I would say forgotten as well. When all of us arrived our drink order was taken. They had some nice martini drinks and those who ordered them seemed to like them (mostly... More

The sushi is very good at Hotoke. Always fresh and interesting. I really like the vibe and the decor of the restaurant also. Cocktails are quite good.

I met with friends for drinks after work. The cocktail menu has a nice mix of standard and unusual cocktails - all very well made. We shared a few plates of sushi and snacks that were very tasty. Good music and ambiance. The staff were always friendly and attentive.

I love this place. Whether dinner for two or a large group, we have always been welcomed and treated well by the staff. The owner is so accommodating. The ambiance is zen-like, with a huge Buddah watching over the diners. Lighting is low in some areas, but you can move to better lighting. There are also very mod white couches... More

The restaurant only works in the evenings it seems. The interiors are white with stark red lightings breaking the darkness all round. There was a big crowd in the restaurant when we went, who were making a great amount of noise. We left without dinner due to this. But the entrees' served were indeed quite good and the staff were...

Dining space very large. Many unusual cocktail offerings.Menu is also very large with many unusual choices. Three of us had fusion type offerings and enjoyed. I had Filet Mignon. Mine was perfectly cooked and nicely presented. Charles did an excellent job as our waiter. This was early dinner at 4:15 and only one other table at that time. Prices were... More

We went to Hotoke to grab some apps after the gym, we did not plan on staying for dinner. We ate at the bar and had intermittently attentive or disinterested service. We ordered the calamari, the edamame, the chicken satay and the beef tapanyaki. The calamari were clearly of the frozen variety and the sauce they came with - which... More
