Similar experience for us. We did have good service --at least the bartender was quite nice. The look
of the place is cool contemporary. The food was just
okay..pizza was blah, philly type sandwich was good,
not great and quite small. Soups were just adequate.
The white wine was warm and by today's prices for a
glass of wine, that is really unnacceptable. I would
say the look of the restaurant and the friendliness
of staff would bring us back.

Thank zhuzhu

Living in the neighborhood, I had high hopes for Loto, and have given it around a half-dozen chances, and so far, not so good. The service has been the main problem. Once it actually was good, otherwise it mostly seems well-meaning yet inadequate and untrained. There may be issues with kitchen timing as well, which could explain the frequency of lukewarm to cold food ariving at table.
The menu itself is also part of the problem. Its not that its a bad menu, its just that its so much like every other upscale-on-the-cheap place around. The dishes are neither ambitious or new, but neither are they comfortable and cant-miss. Its hard to put ones finger on exactly whats missing, its not that its bad food, it just doesnt seem remotely inspired. I think that applies to Loto in general. It feels like a work in progress, and on the plus side, they have plenty of room for improvement.
