This was our first visit. It was dinner on a Saturday night. It felt like the staff were too busy since most things we needed required asking more than once. However, the food quality was very good so because of that it was still a pleasant trip.

Food was great. Service was a bit slow but it was the lunch rush. I brought 6 people who hadn’t been to Koto before and they were all commenting on how good it was and how much they enjoyed it.

It is a nice place to go for sushi downtown. Not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. Food was delicious.

Koto had 2 servers for the entire restaurant, plus they did the bartending...on a busy busy Saturday night. The cooks finally delivered the food that had been sitting around waiting for pickup. These 2 ladies ran their feet off the entire time we were at the restaurant. No bussing staff so a third of the place had dirty tables.

I’ve been here for lunch a few times and thought it was good. Went for dinner and it was terrible. The menu is much smaller for dinner and surprisingly they don’t put their good stuff on it. Was very disappointed and it still cost nearly 100 for 2 people. Would recommend for lunch but skip this place for dinner.

We dined here for a business lunch in a group of 7. Food was great and there were lots of options for rolls, and quality was fresh and tasty.
There wasn't a great selection for sushi and sashimi platters, but the ones they did have were good quality.
The restaurant was very busy during lunch hour, with many downtown business patrons. There were only 3 servers for the whole restaurant, so getting their attention was challenging, but they were able to manage, barely. One or 2 more servers would've made a huge difference in service.
Overall, pretty good experience, and I would come back here again for a business lunch. 4/5.

Good food and I've been many times for lunch. We used a Travel Zoo voucher (valid after 5 p.m.) but the menu online is not the one that was available at the restaurant when we got there - it was WAY smaller. Nonetheless the food was fine; the spicy tuna crunchy rolls are always excellent. Wanted more variety though to try things I hadn't tried before.

This is bar none the freshest sashimi in town. Also, the beef tatiaki is a hard 10 out of 10.

The food was fast to arrive but we were disappointed that the rice on the sushi was not sticky. Ever piece of sushi we picked up with the chopsticks broke in half leaving half the rice on the plate.

The taste of the food was ok - It wasn’t extraordinary. We also found it a little pricey for what we received, but we may give them one more try in the future it might have just been an off day.

California rolls where sticky and tasteless. The place was pretty dead which seems to be common. They don’t carry products like Strongbow or similar.

It was very cold inside the restaurant. If you go there during the winter, make sure you bring a heavy jacket. It seem like they do not turn on the heat. Food was mediocre. Sushi was good, we ordered Saba and Yellowtail sushi. The rolls were not very good. Calamari was not good. I would not return to this establishment.
