Their online menu is really nice and interactive! The restaurant staff is quick and eager to get your order. They have an almost insurmountable variety of dishes as well as daily specials. I ordered 3 of their dishes and was very pleased with all of...them.More

We had tried Koto last week and had mixed results. The Gyoza was excellent, but my Habatchi chicken was way overcooked and inedible on the edges (burned). I should have sent it back, but it was late and I was starving. I thought it was...also over sauced, as seen in the picture. Everyone else enjoyed their main course, but again mine was not good.More

We had the sashimi lunch special and rock shrimp appetizer. The sashimi cuts were huge and fresh and the rock shrimp were delicate and sweet. Will go back soon!

Koto is a fairly new Japanese restaurant in the area. The decor inside was very beautiful wonderful wood work. The food and service was very impressive. We ate in the dining room but our next visit will be at the grill where the chef cooks...your meal in front of you like at bennhannas. I will return to dine there again.More

Sushi is fantastic! Nice restaurant with great staff. I eat here every time I come to the area. You don't want to miss this one if you are coming to town.

They have the best sushi in town. They also cook hibachi right at the table which is great for my son, as he does not care for most sushi. The restaurant is always clean and it is very nicely decorated.

This was our second choice for Japanese food (the add for the first place failed to mention needing a reservation). We were promptly seated and accommodated for seating for our small children. Our beverages were delivered, almost as soon as we ordered them. My wife...and I each ordered an entree and sushi. The meals were large enough that we didn’t need to order for our children, as they ate off of our plates. If we are in this area again, we will definitely give this place more business.More

I would agree with other reviews that the food is somewhat bland. However, I ate solo and they were very attentive while I sat at the sushi bar. Ate there two nights in a row because I didn't feel like traveling far from my hotel...so...obviously, the food wasn't bad. The bartender was great. He delivers all drinks in the restaurant and was very informative to both food and drinks. I would come again.More

Visited this place for the first time. There were 5 of us, and I happened to get the worst food. I ordered Chicken Pad Thai and it was the worst I had ever had. The chicken was so hard, like it was 4 days old,...the sauce was not the right sauce at all. I get Pad Thai every time I can, if it is on the menu, and even American restaurants get it right. This place failed at it. Also the sushi menu contained mostly spicy rolls, which is a code for not having fresh fish. Probably would not come back. The waitress was nice, atmosphere is fine.More
