Not only was the food awful, the waiter, James M., was the name on the ticket, gave us a check with a political statement that out of common sense I will not mention. It is not any restaurant business to pass out ANY such garbage. I will never set foot in any Koto restaurant and advise anyone that I know... More

We decided not to seat at the hibachi but instead on the regular table. Not too bad for the price of the sushi and roll. Service isn't great though

koto has great food. the hibachi is delicious!!!! i usually get chicken and shrimp with noodles. the salad they serve with it has a great dressing unlike any other. my boyfriend loves sushi and has found many rolls he likes here, i eat the cooked kind mainly, and we both LOVE the "crazy friday roll"!!!!!

Before we went here my wife said "your probably won't leave here stuffed but it's entertaining". We left stuff. I ate about half of my soup, the salad was great. I got the shrimp/scallop combo with fried rice. Our chef was great and entertaining and we sat the nicest family. Great time.

Fun for the family with the flourish of Japanese knife juggling and flying shrimp to try to catch in your mouth! It can get a little loud with large parties (although most people enjoy that!) around the hibachi, but the food is always fresh and delicious.

Love the sushi here. Amazing selection comes out looking beautiful and tasty. They also do take-out which is super convenient. Try some of their own specialty rolls, they are unique and yummy. The Untouchable sushi roll is my favorite!!!

Went with my parents and wife. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the food was good. I thought the chef was a bit mechanical, but not everyone can be a great showman. I really enjoyed my noddles.

From steaks, sushi, and hibachi!!, its a fun place, its very good and roomy, as with most hibachi places it can be noisy but its that kind of fun place. The sushi we had was very good, it was a very nice restaurant. Its easy to get to, plenty of parking and a full bar.
