Asian
Toku’s cuisine is predominantly Japanese with influences from China, Korea, and South East Asia. Ingredients and cooking techniques throughout the world create the Modern Asian menu. Owners Gillis and George Poll have dined all over the world, and have come across a variety of dishes that have really impressed them, “the best of the best.” According to Gillis, “We put together our favorites and added our own unique twists to them.” George emphasizes the menu’s ease and variety. “It’s a straightforward, casually written menu which allows you to dine any way that you’d like.” Guests may enjoy traditional meals with an appetizer, entree and dessert, or dine exclusively on sushi. Others can order cocktails and a table full of appetizers and skewers to share. “The menu is set up for sharing,” he confirms. Anything goes when ordering at Toku.

Ate outside and felt quite safe. Inside however was very crowded as if there was no pandemic at all. Bar seats were filled as well. Love this place, but wish they would adhere to social distancing guidelines. Love this place, but wait for an outside table.

I realize that some people love Toku and some don't- but I am a big fan and have been for many years. This is my go to relaxation good meal restaurant. Food is consistent. Menu is large. I usually order a variety of apps and sides with maybe one main and just eat sort of "tapas" style. Yes, it is fairly pricey. But the quality of the food warrants it for me.

A 70th birthday we both ordered the bento box and most of it was awful. I love this place but my friend whose birthday it was had never eaten there before and I was embarrassed.

15th Anniversary. It was a Wednesday night and though there was a crowd, it was not as busy as it is on a Thursday through Sunday night. Despite this, the food did not come out in the usual well choreographed manner with which we’ve come to expect at Toku. Additionally, we felt as if we were rushed in and out since the check was handed to us immediately after dessert hit the table which was 1.5 hours after we were seated. A total lackluster experience on what was a special evening.

This is a favorite of my son's, as he loves the Korean style of grilling his steak over a hot rock. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating the many allergies my son has. The food is decent, nothing noteworthy.

I love every single thing about toku. I love being greeted by Carolina who is literally so poised and professional and warm. I have made this our family weekly night out together. The food is phenomenal the service is unbelievable. The food comes out quickly and is so delicious we order many different dishes as we bring different family members along to our weekly dinners. All the sushi is fresh and delicious. The crispy tuna is amazing the wagyu steak is always tender and cooked to perfection the sauce is divine and the fries are fantastic. The rock shrimp is great. Literally every dish and salad is outstanding. The desserts are eclectic and beautifully made. Oh and i love my weekly tokutini! I know I can go to other places however this has become literally our go to for our family night out. Thank you Carolina and the toku team for making every week a memorable one!

Everything was great until we paid the bill, we’re finishing up conversations and the wait staff removes our waters and candles from the table. It was rude.

We made reservations for a late lunch and requested a booth for 4. We were taken to a booth with a pocket book already there, but asked to sit. We were then relocated to a different table (not a booth) to make space for the person with the pocketbook. She remained alone for almost 25 mins until her party joined after. It was rude and disrespectful, especially as we arrived before and left after.

As a sidenote, management did offer to buy my party of 4 (with 2 children) a cocktail, and when we declined, they did comp our soft drinks and an appetizer(s).
