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... read more

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.

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

I went here for Happy Hour with my boyfriend. To start, we ordered miso soups. I also got a ginger salad, and he got a Kani salad. To me, Kani salad doesn't actually have lettuce and just has basically crabmeat with cucumber. Anyways, it came as an actual salad (also not worth the $7). Next I ordered two Philadelphia rolls,...

I only ate at the express window. I had the beef hibachi which had decent flavor but at best was comparable to the other options for Asian cuisine in the mall food court so this review is limited to the express window. I also ordered the spicy tuna roll and salmon rolls for sushi which tasted very fresh and the... More

We have been eating lunch at Kotos every year for 5 years. We will not be returning. They served Tea and it was cold, then we asked for a new pot, we waited 12 minutes. Then they could not give us new cups, so they pored the old tea into a plastic container. The meal was good, however the server... More
