A popular South Tampa strip center, home to Chipotle Mexican Grill and Koto Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, has a new owner.

Published Tampa Bay Business Journal on 2016-03-11 00:29:12 GMT

I will never go to Kotos Japanese steak house again. Normally I wouldn't go so far as to complain about a Restaurant or shame them online, but this is too far. I come from a company who Tries their best at guest satisfaction and problem resolution. A bad situation and a bad sushi roll made the experience Horrible. The GENERAL MANAGER said it was our fault for being drunk, even though the guest was screaming and threatened to fight over a comment made to our friend. The guy was extremely homophobic and wanted to fight, so we got moved. Then the manager came to the table TWICE and asked if my untouched sushi roll was okay. Both times I said no it's the wrong roll and I won't eat it. He said next time I should order a different roll and that if I knew anything about sushi I should be aware that what I ordered wasn't what I like. He also said that 'it would be a bad business move if I was to just get you a new roll or take it off your bill.' Well, it's a bad business roll to piss off a guest and pretty much insult them if they get the wrong food item. Never going back. Asshole. Chelsea Aryn

Come try amazing sushi

I went to your restaurant not only did you mess up the reservation and drink order but you splashed hot soup in my boyfriends sister eye and DID NOT acknowledge it! But after I talked to the manager on staff nothing was done about this. I'm very upset about this and WILL NOT be back. Please talk yo your staff about this. Our waiter was Cynthia and I'm not sure who the manager was but I'm sure you can figure out who this was.

FOOOOD POISONING for party of 6. Used to come here very often but no more.

Published Zena Reddy on 2013-12-04 02:15:27 GMT

My partner and I come here on a regular basis. We thoroughly enjoy the food and have had very good service each time we dine here. We generally sit by the windows as it is a nicer experience than the hibachi tables in the back, although have sat back there when our children are in town. Recommend to others. Nice Japanese restaurant.

This place is a joke. Received the worst service I have ever had in a restaurant. Literally. Our server didnt bring us drinks, (the hostess actually got our waters and one person in our party gave up and just went to the bar to get a drink. And to the hostess, if you read this, the one from Hawaii, you are awesome. Keep up the great work. You were the only good part about our meal) or utensils, got our food orders wrong, gave us the wrong menu , didnt know the menu because she "normally doesnt work the night shift", and did ALL of her side work instead of taking care of us. She even refilled the soy sauce at our table as part of her side work and before we could be like "umm hey can we order food?" she walked away and kept refilling the soy sauces at the other tables. At this point I was basically laughing because it was so bad. I thought maybe we were being Punk'd. There were stretches of 20-30 mins where we were not helped at all.... And when we asked to speak to the manager, calmly...I might add. We were basically laughed at... by the MANAGER, and there was literally no attempt made to reconcile the situation. It blew my mind that they seem to not care that they were the cause of a really crappy experience and not only did you not care, it almost seemed to be of no concern to you what so ever that we never came back when you are the ones that did everything wrong. While in the middle of talking to the manager she literally cut us off mid sentence, and walked away. And my friend had to pay for the food..that KOTO GOT WRONG. Yea, that happened. This is the first time in my life I have had such a bad dining experience that I felt compelled to complain...just awful.And on a side not, this place trys to come off as a higher end Japanese restaurant. A lot of people have tattoos these days, including me. But in a professional environment, and pretty much universally in nice restaurants, visible tattoos are usually frowned upon.Our server had visible tattoos covering her neck, one of which said "baby girl"....keep it classy Koto.
