I ordered one dish of sushi, which was served hot. I guess it was mediocre, it wasn't terrible, but won't do it again. Sushi at the local Safeway grocery or the Hagen's grocery is better.

My husband and I come here often. Not only do we get great service but the quality of the sushi is phenomenal! We are from California with a sushi restaurant on every corner so we know good Sushi. This is our favorite. So much so, when we travel and try a different Sushi restaurant, we are always disappointed...

After being seated by smiling hostess, we waited ten minutes. No water. No waiter. Nobody. Only two other customers. We left. We will never know if the food was good.

For the price. They could have better lighting. A waitress that understand you.had a very very hard time ordering. So I didn't get what I ordered. Not the first time. But I thought I'd give them another chance. Not again!!!!!!!!!!!

Although the reviews were not favorable, we thought we would try for ourselves. We were not over whelmed but was not put off by the quality of the food. Not the best sushi I have ever eaten but not the worst either.

My husband and I went to Kyoto's in Oak Harbor Saturday for an anniversary dinner and it was a complete disappointment and waste of time. The sushi was so so at best and actually I've had much better at other places. The wahsabi was so hot it took your breath away regardless how we tried to tame it. They wouldn't... More

I'm a regular visitor to North Whidbey Island and hate to be pessimistic in a town where the lousy economy has put places out of business one after another, but aside from the very nice waitress ("Pia") the other night, I have nothing good to say about my sushi experiences at Kyoto. Over the years, I've eaten here a half... More

They turn out some really great Japanese food here. They have the regular tables or you can sit and watch the fancy blade work of the chef. The sushi bar is very fresh and the even have Tatami rooms for private dining.

Overall an extremely disappointing meal at Kyoto. Which is sad, because this actually is quite a very nice place. The waiting service is courteous and efficient. The restrooms were clean and well kept. And the place has a great centralized location, so we decided to give it a shot. We ordered their Calamari for an appetizer and found it to... More

We asked tonight and learned the new owner completely redid Kyoto with the desire to make it "authentic." Opened December, 2011. Menu does seem very authentic (I used to live in Japan) and the food and presentation are great. Atmosphere is pleasant, staff is attentive and polite, and Kyoto is one of the cleanest restaurants I've ever seen. Prices are... More
