The Bottom Line

You won't leave Kyoto feeling disappointed (especially if you've had their all-you-can-eat special), but the quality of the food and service does seem to fluctuate, perhaps due to the experience levels of staff on duty when you go. It's still worth a try, because when Kyoto is good, it rivals the top sushi joints in the city.


  • The all-you-can-eat special: $22.95 Sunday - Tuesday evenings.
  • Kyoto is clean and brightly lit.


  • Service can be rather slow, especially during busy dinner hours.
  • The quality of food and service is known to waver.


  • Kyoto is located at 7453 W. Layton Ave., Greenfield
  • Phone: 414.325.1000
  • Dress is come-as-you-are
  • Average tab can range from $7 - $10 per person for lunch to $10 - $50 per person for dinner (especially if you add sake).
  • Major credit cards are accepted
  • Hours: 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 4:30-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 4:30-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday

Guide Review - Kyoto

The first few times I tried Kyoto, the service was a tad slow but the nigiri and maki were of such high quality that it more than made up for the wait. Plus, if you strategically order, the all-you-can-eat dinner is an excellent deal. Unfortunately, the last two times I was there the service had waned -- on one occasion the server was obviously inexperienced and / or having a bad day, and on the other the service was very slow. Still, because it has been very good in the past, I would still suggest giving Kyoto a try -- perhaps those experiences were an anomaly to an otherwise good establishment.

Kyoto Going Downhill, Member Danthony1

I've been coming to this restaurant for the past 3 years. The sushi was good, the pricing wonderful. The service freindly warm and excellent. I have noticed that since they expanded. The quality has gone down. The Service is failing and the freindliness of the staff has been replaced with ""get them out the door, quickly"" The all you can eat for 23.95? Forget about it. You used to be able to order from the menu and they would bring it all to your table at once. Now they stretch it out one plate at a time until you are sick of sitting in their restaurant. The last 3 times I have gone I ahve promised not to go back. Today was the last straw. I wish you luck Ricky. But you wont see my family back anytime in the near century
