I have heard from several people that the customer service at Kasa Moto is terrible but I thought I would still check it out for a girls night out for my friends birthday dinner. When we got seated our waitress came up to us to let us know that the menus would be brought out. Ok that's fine. We started taking pics and vlogging throughout the night , I don't know if that made her upset but she she was rude and passive aggressive. She came up to us max twice throughout the whole night. When we asked for the bill it took her another 10 mins to come with the machine , she was avoiding us the whole night. She had another person bring out our cake and she made another person being out the debit machine. She was very angry throughout the whole night, and we don't know why. But my friends and I are bloggers and vloggers so we have our cameras out all the time, it's our job. Anytime we start vlogging or taking pics she would quickly make a u turn. I would not recommend this place to anyone !! I would never be coming back here.

This was our first visit. Over all a nice place. Our server was lovely but didn’t come around unless flagged down. Attention to detail lacked, like no spoon with coffee etc. Food was good and the presentation was great.

Both the location and exterior appeal to KM were very appealing and once inside it was evident that there were only professionals operating within a well-structured system. First the Hostesses and then our waitress Sarah, kind and very warm in both their mannerisms and interactions.

A definite recommendation to both friends and family (I already have).

We were seated upstairs for dinner on a Friday shortly after 7pm. Unfortunately the music was unbearably loud we could hardly hear each other or converse. We thought perhaps it was the upstairs area only, but when we left the restaurant, the main dining room downstairs was equally as loud. Imagine eating dinner in a nightclub. It's a shame because otherwise, the restaurant has great decor and great food.

Kasa Motto's patio was beautiful. I had a fun experience! Was fun to go out to with a group of friends & the DJ was spinning some sweet tech house on a Thursday night. The food was ok , definitely on the pricy side for what you recieve. My tofu was super oily. The sushi rolls were alright. The ambiance is nice & pleasant.

The hostess was accommodating and we requested the upstairs patio. The ambience was relaxed and mood and lighting were perfect for this beautiful fallish weather that we are having.

Our server was engaging and attentive. He humoured is as we can be very “engaging” and fun with everyone around us that we randomly meet.

The food as usual was great. The rolls we ordered were fresh and the Rock Shrimp was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I wasn’t too impressed with the calamari as when I tasted certain portions it had a bitter charred taste.

We ordered wine and even though they did not have the Chianti I ordered they brought another Chianti to the table which is a lesser cost but it was still a good bottle of wine. However my only issue is that I did not check my bill but I still was charged for the more expensive bottle. Which I didn’t have a big issue with since I called the restaurant and they said they will fix the issue and refund the difference plus tax back onto my credit card so no harm done.

The whole dinner experience was very pleasant from the time we came in to the time we left. I’ve been to Kasamoto on a few occasions and will continue to do so in the future.

Service was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Our table was seated at 645, we ordered drinks at 650. ONE drink arrived at 720 while the other 5 took at least another 10 min. We ordered s bottle of wine which then also took forever to arrive. The server actually REACHED ACROSS one of the guest to place a drink in front of another. Our actual server was never around and if she was, she was filling water and not taking our order. So frustrating. We called the manager over, we spoke with the sommelier as well anyone who we could stop. The food was just ok. Very expensive for just ok.

The menu has changed and they have taken off key menu. Items that made this rest unique and an all time favourite for me and my friends and team. It was my go to. Even the waiter mentioned things had changed and people were pleased. Tuna on rice, cooking your own steak, variety of teas, sauces changed. The replacements are not adequate and the flavours are not good. This will be my last time going sadly!

Was disappointed when I arrived and they claimed I wasn't on the patio despite calling the morning of to confirm that the reservation was for the patio. They were able to accommodate us after a bit of negotiating at a smaller table in the back corner so it wasn't the experience we were looking for.

Service was poor. Server made a couple of sarcastic remarks which we found rude and offensive.

We were served a plate that a hair in it, and all they did was say "oh, sorry about that" and take it back to change it. We don't even know if they changed the plate or just removed the hair and reserved it. An empty plate was also put on the table which had a hair it. Again, they said "oh, sorry about that" and took it, removed the hair and brought it back (we don't know if they washed it).

Food was good, but not sure I would ever recommend it as service had ruined it for us.

We made a reservation a few days prior, expecting to be seated in the restaurant and not the patio. The restaurant called to confirm the reservation the day before and no mention was made that only the patio would be open.

We arrived at the restaurant and were shown to an undesirable table, despite there being a number of tables open. We asked to be moved and were told we only had the table for 2 hours and would have to leave by then. This is understandable in any busy restaurant, it was the. Manner in which we were told.

The food items we ordered, with the exception of the tuna starter, was vey good. The chicken dish and the black cod dishes were tasty.

The restaurant does have a good wine list.

The maitre d' takes takeout and delivery orders in between seating people, so there's a customer service issue right when you step inside. We waited literally 30 mins for our appetizers of crudo hamachi and tempura yam. The reason given for the long wait: the kitchen is doing their best but it's busy. Then our wagyu fried rice side dish for main courses arrived which was greasy and uninspired. Once the rice was cold, one main dish came out: black bass. Tiny portion of fish, but cooked right. When I was literally finished eating my main course, my husband's chicken dish finally came. Sorry, no. This is not a tapas menu and the waiter tried to say that's how the kitchen treats the dishes and sends them out like tapas. Nope. Done with that one!

Overall I was disappointed. My previous experience was good including service and food.
This time, the service was average and similar to a chain restaurant, all staff and waiters projected snobbishness and made visible and annoying preferences towards certain guests. Rolls and slaw were horrible.
It's nice to get out to the Yorkville and sit in the roof patio, but Kasa Moto for me no again

We were seated on the patio at the wrong table (not our mistake) and only after they took our drink orders did they decide to tell us to move (it had already been 20 mins at this point). They then move us to a table which is impossible to eat a proper dinner on (lounge seating) and after this we insist on somewhere more up to par. They take us to a table where we are practically sitting in the kitchen (wait staff walking around us constantly), so naturally we kindly ask to be moved downstairs. This was a birthday dinner by the way!

Once inside they wonderful waitress who was trying to help us through all of that made it up to us. They gave us a round of birthday shots and a nice desert. Just wish the service upstairs had been on par with past experiences.
