We have been visiting Siesta for 7 years and never tried Jo To. We thought they were only a Japanese steak house and didn't know they also serve Chinese food. We had a good meal with excellent service. Unfortunately, Jo-To is closing soon.

I'm not an expert on things Japanese, but we love tempura dishes. When done right, the breading is crisp and flavorful. Here, it was a bit soggy. The ingredients were fresh and the portions generous. Took some home for lunch.

We've eaten at many Japanese steakhouses before. The Jo-To is very accommodating and the food was great! Not as expensive as I had expected. Will go back for sure.

We took our family of four adults and three children to Jo-To. The food was fresh and expertly prepared. The staff was so attentive to the needs of the youngsters at the table. We enjoyed vegetarian dishes, steak and chicken.

Ate here with hopes of an entertaining meal..... To do the hibachi it was a 3 1/2 hour wait so we opted to just order and have them cook it in the kitchen. The sushi was very good and tasteful. And a very large selection...More

So glad we fit this in on our vacation stay. I highly recommend the sword fish. I would also recommend making a reservation. We didn't know they took reservations and got lucky and only had a small wait time. Food and service was excellent!

This place has the worst service. My food was cold and sushi was so tiny. Thanks. What a waste of a night
