    We returned for dinner here after a fantastic experience for our anniversary last year. Our food was an elegant and utter delight. "The Rock" appetizer was the best starter imaginable and our sushi, steak and duck were out of this world. It was again amazing and hands down one of the best meals we have EVER eaten. Our waitress was attentive, kind, entertaining and personable! We'll request her upon our return- and we will be coming back! Our server was wonderful, we didn't need to ask for a thing, he was right there! Of all the places to eat in Vegas, Japonais will be our 'go to' recommendation...it's not to be missed!

    We went to Japonais before a show, and were surprised it was as good as it was - we had a selection from each of the kitchen areas (sushi and robata), which were delicious, and then the "Le Quack" to top it off. Wow, what a dish! A generous half smoked duck breast served moo shu style. Awesome meal and a great start to a fun evening.

    Our dinner for 4 was greatly enhanced by our attentive and professional server Po. She was gracious, knowledgeable and accommodating, even making a special request of the chef for a lactose-intolerant diner. This special need is noted in my Open Table profile, but the information is rarely passed on to the service staff, as was done at Japonais. A lovely venue, and a great meal!

    My wife and I made a reservation for 7 pm. We were seated almost immediately. Got drinks and food pretty quickly. It all tasted great. The only complaint was that we were offered bottled water which turend out to be $12 lol. It was that it cost $12 but they should've mentioned it is all. Still a great place to dine.

    We tried Japonais on a whim on our las night in Las Vegas and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere in the dining room was very calming. The service was great, and our server was very attentive. Most of all the food was amazing, and the drinks were wonderful too! I think we found a place that we will always have to come back to when we are in Las Vegas. Overall a great night and a wonderful meal!

    I ate here 6 years ago and really enjoyed everything so I decided to bring my husband along this time. I promised him that he would love it and he was a bit skeptical because it does offer quite a lot of Japanese food. We both had the filet mignon and it was superb. It just melted in our mouths. The portion size was perfect and we didn't leave feeling stuffed, just the right amount of full. The staff was very pleasant and attentive. I would highly recommend japonais to anyone.

    The food was mediocre and the drinks were stiff. I ordered the rye and ginger beer specialty cocktail and it was...intense. The sushi rolls are a lot of rice and a mere morsel of fish. The ahi ceviche was nice. The atmosphere is quiet (we were there around 6) and sexy with water features and dim, red light fixtures. I recommend if you're going to a show, but not for a special trip.

    This was my second time eating at Japonais. I are there 3 years ago, the last time I was in Vegas, and the experience was so memorable, I had to go again. The food is AMAZING!!! The specialty rolls do not disappoint, the ambiance is authentic and elegant, the desserts are fabulous! Try the sweet and sour calamari for an appetizer. I will go again!!!

    We had spicy tuna and shrimp tempura rolls for an appetizer and both had no taste. Dinner we had the chicken chestnut which had no taste and the tuna steak was a little bit above bland. There a lot of better restaurants at the Mirage and the at other casinos. Would not recommend dining here for the prices they charge.

    Dined on 7/3/2014
    This is always a stop for my friends and I when in LV! All around great service and food is fresh, delicious and served w amazing presentation! The true key to Japonais is that they serve you fresh grated wasabi. This is by far the best way of eating sushi!!! If you have never had this you are in for a treat! Tip: due to this wasabi not being the powder form mixed in a big batch in the morning w water, fresh wasabi you don't mix with your soy sauce as it is a solid now. The proper way is to first put a little in your mouth to acquaint yourself with once you know how much you will have per bite but directly on on sushi/sashimi or on chopsticks when grabbing, dip in soy sauce then enjoy this new way of sushi!

    Nice restaurant though most restaurants on the strip are nice. Menu is small. They don't actually offer a gluten free menu they just say if it is gluten free or not. Online menu and options seem different from actual menu. Food is nicely presented, taste is nothing extraordinary. We went mainly for convenience.

    We were celebrating our Anniversary and seeing a show at the Mirage thought this would be a good place for dinner. We were Very Wrong, the food was served luke warm with dinner plates and the server was so distant nobody cared. We did complain & they offered a "free dessert"- hardly worth it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/22/2014
    Everything was going swimmingly. Only four occupied tables in the restaurant. The appetizers and sushi were delicious. Then....six tables were occupied....and our waiter vanished. Water was not refilled. No one came over to check on us. I had to ask about my main course - "Le Quack" (duck); it took way, way too long to materialize. Once received, it was horrible. Tough, fatty, heavy-handed with the sauce. Maybe I caught it on a bad night. Anyway, the failure in service and the bad entree made it a "middling" experience at best. If a restaurant wants to charge "high-end" prices, then it must offer "high-end" service. I can't recommend the restaurant, but wouldn't fault anyone for giving it a shot.
