Our waitress Daisy was not the best waitress , she kept forgetting our drinks and brought us the wrong items . When it was time to pay I chased her down . I almost felt like walking out because I couldn’t believe I had to look for her to pay , usually the waiter on close by during check out . Overall is wasn’t a pleasant experience . Mind you I’ve been to this restaurant before and never experience such bad service .

We had the pleasure of dining at Kao for the first time this past Friday for my fiancé’s birthday. We were delighted to take advantage of their happy hour 2 for 1 deals just before it ended at 7pm. The food was amazing and their cocktails were pretty good. Our waitress was very attentive and kind. Would definitely return!

We went right after Wuhan flu restrictions were lifted and so my volume/noise level ratings are probably off. I imagine during normal circumstances the noise is a little above quiet. With that being said, I'm still talking about the miso soup. I normally don't do more than taste the soup. I devoured this one. I can't get over how much I enjoyed it. Wet had two sushi rolls after that. I'm literally still smiling about howmuch I enjoyed them. Wait staff was on point and only down side to our visit was that there weren't more people there. I'm a picky sushi eater. WE WILL BE BACK FREQUENTLY. I loved it. Looking forward to trying their drinks next time.

Came to Koa for a second time. Again, the food was delicious and filling. Helen was our waitress again and we were delighted. This time, we went with friends that were celebrating their 17th anniversary. They too enjoyed food and atmosphere. The only complaint we would have about our visit this time would be the delay in the time that the food was delivered to our table. Overall, our friends enjoyed it as much as we did.

We went for a Valentine's dinner. Although we arrived early, we were shiwn to our table right away. Our waitress Helen was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the Valentine's dinner that was being featured and that Helen suggested. Keeping in mind that it was a busy night already, we waited longer than usual for our food to arrive. However, we received our entrees BEFORE the appetizers. Nonetheless, the food was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, the desserts we ordered never came out. Apparently, there was a big confusion with the food in the back and our desserts were not to be found. In the end, the manager discounted our meals, we had a lovely time, our waitress was very friendly and we would definitely recommend the restaurant to everyone. As s matter of fact, we will be dining at this restaurant again today.

If you’re looking for a sushi place with an Argentinian and Peruvian flare, this is your place. Beautiful restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating for people watching. Food was good and the sushi had a twist with yummy sauces. Some of our party also had the grilled churrasco steak. Great place when you want to eat sushi and have someone in your party that prefers Argentinian style grill. Full bar and great service.

The menu is a weird mix of Asian/Argentinian/Peruvian cuisine ...too complicated which is a sure recipe for mediocre food. The restaurant has a loud karaoke in the back that we were not expecting on a Friday at 7:30 pm . Annoying if you are not part of the drunk karaoke group.

We were there for Miami Spice and We were there for 3 hours. We were there to celebrate just a moms night out. It was ruined. It took for ever to see a server. There were two tables that got there after us and left before us. One of us didn’t get our order and the server who brings out the food was rude when we asked about the food. Our server treated us rushed the few times we saw her. Then when we got our food we were not told what was what until we asked and then we couldn’t hear what they said. We didn’t even get the correct utensils. The meat wasn’t done according to what was asked. It was a mess from the beginning. It seem to be just with our table. It was a disappointment. Aside from that the rest of the food was tasteful. I would not go back. It’s unfortunate because I liked the ambience and it was kid friendly.

Very creative menu with a large variety. Excellent and knowledgeable server who really knew the individual ingredients and details of each dish we asked about. Beautifully decorated restaurant but lighting needs to be dimmed more inside to add better ambiance.
Outdoor seating option but way too hot to enjoy during summer. Try the various sushi rolls that are not on other restaurant menus.

OMG.I will not come back ever again. I eat out in alot of places and I have never had to wait one hour and a half for my appetizer. Their excuse is they are full. Wow if 10 tables is full then dont operate. I asked for a little plate to place the soy sauce in and the waitress says sorry we have run out of plates let me see what I find. I'm still amazed cause the place is not full. The sushi was ok, but we ordered a pork churrasco with aioli sauce as the menu shows the picture and what do I get burnt pork with ketchup and French fries and chunks of sea salt. I have never had the most salty dish that was not tolerable. I was even afraid to order a dessert. Our waitress hardly assisted us and I have not been able to drink water because she has not refilled my cup since our arrival. Will never reccomend our friends to this place. As a person that always leaves tips and my boyfriend lives on tips he was like dont leave any since she was hardly attending us to even bring the check and charge me
