The staff was really great. I was on a business trip and tried this with a couple of coworkers. One had never been to anything like this. It was fun watching her get excited over the same thing regulars come back for again and again....More

This restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. A stream with koi runs across the entrance, and is crossed by a footbridge. Customers have a choice of hibachi or private tables. Service was attentive, and the food was delicious to both the eyes and the palate. Our...More

Kind, swift, and attentive service at Koto. I sat in a booth within view of the hibachi grill. Very entertaining. The chefs were skilled at presentation. My bento box with scallops was excellent, and the portions were quite large. I would definitely return. Recommend.

We had a pleasant meal here the night before an early morning flight out of the Albany airport. The restaurant is quite large and covers all the bases (hibachi, sushi, booths, bar). The waitress we had was surprisingly knowledgeable about the menu and pleasant.
