My husband and I LOVE this place! It is our favorite restaurant and has the best sushi. We love eating the Hibachi grill or just relaxing at the sushi bar. Either way we ALWAYS order some Hope Rolls. They are amazing and we haven't found another Japanese restaurant that compares to these rolls. Always amazing service and great food!

The bartender was very nice. Plum wine was good. Our cool was nice, but not extremely outgoing. But he was a very good cook. The waitresses weren't overly friendly, but since the good was so good, I could overlook it.

Our food was top notch! The server was just okay. It took about 20 minutes to get a glass of wine but every thing else was wonderful. Great sushi and my steak was cooked perfectly:)

Nakato has great food and a great atmosphere. We love the fried rice and the salad is one of our favorites. Sushi is always a great choice also.

This place is bland and flavorless and the ones cooking skills are not even as good as you can do at home. PRICE is too high not enough entertainment. I expect to have fun when I go to a place like this.
