1st time at Kato - We ordered Takeout. Sushi was ok, but I thought it was pricey. Service was ok too.

Went here on a date once and the food wasn't particularly memorable. Basic sushi fare and a little bit more expensive, but overall pretty good.

As always, excellent food and service. Never rushed, server checked back several times. The firecracker roll was loaded with crab.
