Otoro is a solid sushi place. Most of the time their dishes are excellent. Several times however when I have requested simple adjustments like 'no sauce' on some rolls, the come to the table looking like a second-grader made them. Their service is usually great, but when they get busy, not so much. Also, we have learned not to order... More

Everything you would expect from a Japanese restaurant. Very popular with the locals, of which I am one. Nice to be able to bring a big group. Crowded on weekends, so get in early if you don't want to wait. You will note lots of people taking dinner home. I love the floor tiles and paint treatment on the walls.... More

This is a local restaurant for us and *the* place for sushi per my avid sushi-loving friends. Our group eats here roughly monthly and they say the fish is very fresh and better than any sushi restaurants in Santa Cruz. I'm a novice myself preferring the vegetarian rolls and my wife will have the steak teriyaki which is great. The... More

Having lived in Finland for many years, I had low expectations of sushi, outside of Asia, but it was quite excellent. I ordered to take-out, and had far too much food for my 20 dollars. The service was fast and the guy very helpful!

Delicious and beautiful food, may need a reservation on Friday and Saturday night; we waited for a table. Ambiance is ok; personally we do not like TV while at fine restaurants.

Someone recommended this to us. We left thanking them. It was a great meal. I was tempted to try new things and was not disappointed. One of the kids had specific requests and the honored them perfectly. We even got dessert as we were enjoying it so! Can't wait to come back.

I had take-out from Otoro one night and it was so good I got it again a second night! The first night they did relatively well with my special requests! The second night they included cream cheese in one of my sushi rolls even though I explicitly said not to do so. However, once I gouged the cream cheese out,... More
