Great spot for a family dinner or celebration. We had two birthdays to celebrate and opted for the habachi. Our server and chef were excellent and very entertaining. We have yet to have a bad meal here and always leave with leftovers. Early Sunday evening (5 o'clock ) is a great time to go, no... read more

This Japanese steakhouse is excellent. I have visited the former location on Erie Blvd and this one is just as good. Very friendly staff and great Sushi!

Despite being in the Mall, this sushi/hibachi restaurant is well worth a visit. My son and I went during snack time (after 8pm) and had a very inexpensive feast of sushi! Several Habachi tables were occupied and we might try that next time I'm in the area.

me and my wife ordered a salad and tempura which was OK, and as main course we ordered the salmon teriyaki which was good, and a lemon grass chicken and shrimp which was tasteless and I had to add a lot of salt in order to eat it. the main plus in the restaurant was the service which was very...

A good place for a night out with a group, to have a few cocktails and a hibachi chef "show", throwing rice balls, etc. We opted for a sit-down dinner, which overall was basically so-so. Our server was excellent, pleasant and attentive without hanging over us too much. When we asked about the sauce used on one of their entrees,... More

Sushi is okay. Tuna roll and salmon roll were good, but small. Miso soup was okay, but not amazing. Service was good. Food came out fast. Presentation was nice. In the end, I wasn't disappointed. I'll probably eat here again.

We went for lunch on a Saturday (2 of us) and were the only ones at the hibachi, so had our own personal lunch. Both the chicken and steak were great. Attentive service and nice flavor.

We were visiting our children for the weekend and showed up 15 minutes before our reservation. The bartender was very helpful in helping us with a beer choice. The hostess sat us at the time of our reservation. The waitress was very attentive to our vegan family. The hibachi chef was also very attentive to making sure that the fried... More

I've eaten at Koto's several times and, since I am a sushi fan, I stick with the raw fish menu. It offers an Habachi grill, but I have never tried it. Customers who prefer the grill seem enjoy it. There is one thing I insist on with sushi: it must be cooler than room temperature, otherwise, I begin to wonder... More

We have been here many times. We go on dates, we take the family and the food is always amazing. Nothing better than fresh off the grill. The fried rice is the best i have ever had and I always get an extra order so there is some to bring home. They take reservations but i have never had trouble... More
