Always quality food and service. Love all their Signature Maki, Spicy Tuna Seaweed Salad, Grilled Octopus, Brussel Sprouts and their Asian Pear Martini. We travel far and wide for Sushi and always say afterwards "We should of went to Kitaro's!". Kudos to our waiter Steven.

We have been to Kitaro Grill at least 5 times...we keep returning!! The atmosphere is great, green walls and amber lighting...comfortable booths! Kitaro is a place where you can relax, drink saki and indulge in delicious sushi!! I make my own Mother's Day reservations!!!

Kitaro has really high quality sushi. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. A little spendy, but worth it for sure.
