Diner Reviews
  • "The Makisu Sushi Lounge and Grill is always enjoyable. The food is very consistent and good. My wife always orders some form of sushi. I'm not as venturesome a person. I ask for a tempura sampler. We have enjoyed the restaurant 4-5 times in the past year or two. It is a pretty place also. Service is always very pleasant and efficient."

  • "I made a reservation for this place at 7PM on Valentines Day. It was crowded as soon as I got there. Every table was taken and I barley got through the door. I let the hostess know that I had a reservation and I was immediately put in front of everyone else that didn't have a reservation. After waiting there for about 3min for a table to open up I was taken to the table with my Bae and enjoyed my Valentines Day sushi."

  • "We went on Valentine's day, they over reserved and it was a mess. The folks checking people in were clueless about greeting the horde at the front door. We sat ourselves at a bar on the side, and had great food and service. It was really great, except that they were over whelmed, on another day, it would have been a solid four stars. So I give them four, with disclaimers."

  • "I understand that they may have overbooked for Valentine's day, but they *should* have hired more servers. It may be acceptable to wait 20 min to get a table (although we had a reservation), but it is utterly unacceptable to wait 30 min at the table without any service. What *really* gets to you, though, is when people who were seated next to you 5 min ago start getting service and you don't. We got up and left at that point. We ended up eating at McDonald's that night, but at least we didn't miss our movie, and the Big Mac wasn't that bad."

  • "I made a reservation for Valentine's Day at 8pm. We got there to find a mob of people in the lobby. More and more people filed in. I asked around and everyone had 8pm reservations. Clearly they took way too many. No one would tell us what was going on. The hostess wouldn't even look at anyone. It would have been nice for her to make an announcement. We all weren't sure if we were supposed to check in or what was going on. My wife and I waited almost a half an hour and then left. I know big nights like this can be difficult. All someone had to do was let us know what was going on. We're not overly critical people. But that was a disaster. They made me rate the food even though we didn't eat any. But I couldn't give any high marks."

  • "Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here, and have already recommended the place to a couple of friends on the basis of the experience. Reasonably priced wine, some excellent sushi in a pleasant, upscale environment that would have fit in well downtown."

  • "I enjoyed the atmosphere; the restaurant is arranged to perfectly accommodate a couple on a date or a larger party of 6! In addition to, the food served is great with attention to detail and presentation!"

  • "We remembered this restaurant since we had eaten there prior to a movie the last time we saw a movie in this area. We left enough time so that we could savor a relaxed dining experience and we were pleased with the artful presentations (an origami like carrot cut to look like a swan was a favorite). The house dressing on the salad was a nice variation on the common ginger/carrot which seemed to include sesame oil and mayo. Salmon sashimi was well-displayed and fresh, with a stylish tower of daikon radish. Maki was also delicious, and when we received the bill we were once again pleasantly surprised. A great find in an unexpected location."

  • "Makisu is one of our very favorite restaurants and we make it a point to go there as much as possible. The ambiance, the food preparation and presentation, and the service are excellent and always consistently so. We love to sit in one of their booths and simply enjoy dining together and relaxing. This year we celebrated two birthdays at Makisu. We have had only very positive experiences and we have and will continue to highly recommend it to all our friends. Thank you, David... and everyone at Makisu."
