My wife and I had been to Toshi several dozen times over the course of the last decade. About a year ago this restaurant began to change; and change for the worse! Each of our last three visits over the course of the last year has been successively worse. Last evening was the one that made us decide never to return. The food was abysmal (they actualy put my Shrimp Tempura Maki Roll in the microwave -- and the waiter was proud of that), the service was poor and unattentive (amazing for a Japanese restaurant), our order arrived in disjointed pieces so that our party ate at different times, drinks were diluted (the wine that a friend had was obviously diluted -- he is a sommalier at a NYC restaurant and he knows the taste and fabric of the wine that he ordered!), and the overall experience was just miserable. Believed it or not we all went to another restaurant ""for a decent dinner"" after we left Toshi..
I certainly will never return, and might I suggest that all of you follow suit! I am hopeful that this restaurant will change hands soon so that it can become, once again, what it once was. It certainly isn't anything to bother with right now.
