I was very hesitant to go at first because my taste buds are very reluctant to say the least. I was impressed by the service, atmosphere and food. Everything was delicious and he didn't force me to eat the broccoli (which I do not like)...More

We celebrated an evening with friends taking off for the south to avoid the winter snows. Our chef was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection. The hibachi performance was first rate.

We love Kyoto. So much so that my husband chooses to celebrate his birthday there each November. Wonderful sushi and steak that is butter tender.

We were very impressed with everything, from the service, the chef, and the excellent dinner. Portions were over the top. Watch out for the draft beer prices as they're more than a little pricey. We'll definitely be making this one of our our regular dinner...More

Have been a Crystal Lake resident for over 25 years and finally tried it. Wish we had tried it sooner! Everyone enjoyed their choices - but will only do the grill next time. Chef was pleasant and fun and can't wait to bring the grandkids.

This restaurant reminds me of eating at Disney World. You truly get a performance with the meal. It is a little pricier, but it is fun for special occasions.

We enjoy taking our grandsons to Japanese steakhouses. They get enough food to fill them up. The food at Kyoto's is by far better than the chain we all know and love ! When they bring out the filet mignon you can see it is...More
