"It was a great time as always. I go hear often and I think food is fantastic. Some of the signature rolls are slightly different than before new owners, but still very good. The music is louder than before but it's a great ambience. Great place for girls nite, Bachelorette dinners or just a fun time. Love this place!"

"Loved it my past few times, this time not so much. Service was soo SLOW. Food never came out hot. Not even at all. Even our fondue was cold. Maybe it was due to the service being slow that our food was just sitting in the kitchen. I raved about this place to our friends to only be disappointed."

"The ambiance is nice. The appetizers of the shrimp dumplings, the tempura and the tuna tartare were good but the signature sushi rolls, although they tasted good were not very large for the money .
Now for the service , it was spotty at best. There were long periods of time in between him checking on us and the sushi rolls were very slow to come because there were only 2 sushi chef's
All in all it was an ok experience at best

"Had a great time last weekend at Hotoke. Took my girlfriend and the food was delicious, wasn't too crowded, and was a great date spot. We ended up with the Duck Special and some rolls of sushi. Can't go wrong with the special rolls they offer. Quiet enough for a nice dinner, but not too quiet that you'd feel awkward having a normal conversation. Would recommend this place!"

"The majority of the food was good but unfortunately thats all. We went on a monday so it was very quiet with only a few more tables other than ours. It took about 45 minutes for us to get our appetizers. My dad ordered a Moscow Mule and the waitress apparently didnt know what it was, neither did the bartender. So she brought something different. When asked what it was she said it was something off their menu, when we asked what was in the cocktail she didnt know. If there is something on a drink or food menu a waitress should know whats in it. We asked for another drink and again we were brought the wrong drink. There is nothing wrong with telling a customer that you do not serve a certain type of drink but bringing three wrong ones is not ok. The sushi rolls are good, the sashimi is a nice size and fresh but the sushi were medicore. Large piece of rice with very thin piece of fish, not worth it. Overall ok expierence. Might try it on a busier night with more experienced service and no sushi."

"Went for Valentines Dinner. I learned it was during a soft opening period. Ive been there only once before and the place looks as its been renovated and with a new menu. We were not disappointed! We tried the carpaccio and tuna crispy rice for appetizers. Absolutely best carpaccio ive ever had hands down. Maybe it was the wasabi cream but the meat was paper thin and delicious. Tuna crispy rice was presented so nice also. For sushi we had the true love roll which was shaped as three hearts with three different dipping sauces. For entrees i had short ribs and my date had the salmon. The asian fusion themed sauces on each were not screaming asian at me but nonetheless they were delicious. Salmon was moist and tender. Short ribs didnt need a knife to cut and was not overly salty like the ones i recently tried in daniel in nyc for double the price. Overall the experience was a surprise and is a huge improvement over the previous incarnation of this location."

"Dined at Hotoke with a couple friends and tried several new dishes. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. Our server was friendly and made good recommendations including a nice Pinot choice. Kept our glasses filled the whole time. Will definitely be back to try some more choices."

"Enjoyed a great meal with friends. The 6 of us ordered a variety of items and everybody was satisfied with the choices. Lychee martini was perfect...wish it lasted longer!"

"We have been to Hotoke several times. We usual dine there when we go to a show at the State Theater. We have never been disappointed. From the appys to the entrees to the desserts, their food is top notch. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

"I went to Hotoke for my 35th birthday, and I wasn't disappointed. Loved the ambiance and the food was unique and delicious. Great location in Downtown New Brunswick. Good for dates, special occasions, and girls' night out."

"Save yourself the trip. This restaurant is not what it was. I assume new owners or something because it was awful! Even the drinks were not the same. The dining room was completely empty and so was the bar which should have tipped me off but when I've been in the past it was always good so I didn't pay that any mind. After dinner I knew why. Bland food, over priced undersized portions are to blame."

"We went here for my husband's birthday with our 9 and 10yo boys and we were very early (an hour) for our reservation. The owner greeted us at the door, wished my husband a happy birthday, and gave us the best seat in the house. The sushi chef was really sweet, answering my boys' questions while creating delicious rolls for us.
Apparently the owner has sold the business but I hope the overall experience and high quality of the food is maintained.
The one down side was our waiter. We were his only table yet he seemed to struggle with our order, cleaning the table, and the concept of bringing a dessert to a group celebrating a birthday. This is a fairly minor challenge and we'll be back soon."
