A word from Miyama Japanese Steak House and Sushi Bar
In Japan, the word Miyama means 'beautiful mountain'. Here in Colorado, it translates into a memorable dining experience in a striking aura of Japanese tradition and decor. The ambience is stepped in history-everywhere you look, you will see rare Japanese antiques and artifacts, including 200 year-old Samurai armor and priceless Japanese 'Tansu' chests. The traditional element of Miyama's decor and cuisine is further enhanced by servers wearing brilliantly colored Kimonos. Whether, you enjoy world class sushi in the Sushi Bar and Lounge; or, prefer dining on premium steak and seafood while being entertained by the Teppan Chef at one of the sixteen 'habachi'tables, Miyama guarantees a memorable dining experience for the entire family, where children are welcomed with a special kids menu and private dining rooms are available for special occasions. **Please note that you are booking for Teppan seats. Please contact the restaurant directly for Sushi reservations**

    Can't believe all these years never ate here -- twice the size of Benihana and comparable to any Denver area sushi bar, it's a nice find even if you live in downtown Denver and want to get away for a fun dinner with family and friends. The hibachi experience is wonderful here! We've done the lounge too for dinner and since it's not too busy there's lots of privacy.

    This was a date night for my husband and me. The hibachi food was delicious and we were so full by the end. I had the scallops; my husband had the steak and lobster. Neither of us were disappointed. The hibachi experience was as entertaining as always. We highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

    A learning experience to be sure. Our teppan waitress seemed angry and indifferent, and not only did she fail to mention the $8.00 sharing charge (one guest had a limited appetite after consuming sushi in their lounge prior to sitting down for teppan), or the fact that their mediocre house red wine price rose from $3.75 in the lounge to a whopping and undeserved $12.00 a glass at dinner! In addition, the waitress pocketed the cash one of our party contributed toward the check on top of the 19% automatic tip for larger parties instead of applying it to the check. Although the food was enjoyable, the waitress and also the manager left us with an overall negative impression.

    Arrived for reservation early. Not seated until reservation time as waiting for another reservation to show but they never did. Seated at table, but it wasn't heated up. Come on, they knew we were coming, heat up the table ahead of time. Waitress took order and promptly returned with soup, followed by salad. It was all downhill from here. Over 30 minutes later, the table is heated and the chef can prepare our food. The food was way too peppery. When waitress asked how food was and was told it was too peppery that was it, no offer to recook meals. We all took our meals home to wash off the pepper so we could eat it. You expect more for $25+ per meal. We will not return and suggest other diners don't even go here.

    Service was good but food was flavorless and bland. The chef who prepared the food for us hardly used any oil, butter, or seasonings...you know the things that make your food taste extra good when you go out to eat! The vegetables tasted like erasers and the fried rice like erasers with egg added. The dipping sauces provided for the food were a ginger sauce and a mustard sauce and they both were way too overpowering and very very salty. We expected at least one creamy sauce for fish and veggies like every other Japanese Steakhouse we've been to. Overall it's a shame because with the great service it could be a successful restaurant but I will be taking my $100 elsewhere until the chef finds his way to the garlic butter and soy sauce.

    Food was average and not prepared in proper order, i.e. vegetables and rice were cooked and served before salad was served. Charged extra for fried rice, even though the whole party ordered the most expensive combo from the menu.

    We sat at one of the cooking tables. The guy was very friendly and the food was prepared well. Had this been the only place of its kind I had ever been, I may have enjoyed it more. However, it isn't and I've had better. If you think you will be getting Yum Yum sauce, think again. In addition, the soup had an odd flavor and the salad dressing was bitter. Overall, it was OK, just not great and very expensive.

    Family tried this place for the 1st time and was pleasantly surprised, with an opentable res that I set before I left the house we were seated immediately, while the same size walkin party ahead of us was told it would be a 20 minute wait.. sports bar-ish on one side and hibachi grill on the other, everything was good.. steak portions seemed a bit light, but didn't leave hungry.. we will return!

    Been going to this place for years - I would say it's better than Benihana and in a much nicer space. HOWEVER, this last time was the last time. We arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation. At around 7:45 they tried to stick the 2 of us at a table with 8 other people - so our 2 seats would not have been in front of the cooking surface. Totally unacceptable. We were ultimately seated around 8 at another table, the people were nice and we had a good time, but you CAN'T SEAT PEOPLE AT A TEPPAN RESTAURANT WHERE THEY AREN'T DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE COOKING SURFACE - OTHERWISE WHAT'S THE POINT?

    My wife and I went to Miyama for our 5th anniversary. The food was amazing! We've been to several different Japanese restaurants like this and hands down this was the best food. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed by the show the chef put on. He hardly spoke and seemed more concerned with getting the meal right than entertaining us. The show really is half the appeal of this type of dining and it wasn't very good. We will definitely go back, but we'll be hoping for a different chef.

    The hibachi chefs do a dandy job of providing entertainment while cooking your meal. The food was quite tasty, high quality and well prepared. Somewhat surprisingly, the quantity was plenty for even the big appetites. We (a group of 7) were there for dinner. While the restaurant seems to expect their patrons to be celebrating something, and inquired many times about birthdays, anniversaries, or engagements, they seemed almost taken aback when we kept saying there was no reason other than just dinner. The place is laid out as a typical hibachi restaurant and is noisy, though not deafeningly so. The experience (and food) rings in at about $40 per person without liquor. A 19% tip is included on parties over 6. Recommended.

    We were looking for a Japanize hibachi restaurant in the Lone Tree/Parker area and chose Miyama based on their web-site claim for ambiance. Their claim was well founded. I'd call it elegant contemporary Japanize. But that was just the start. We were a party of eight including the grandkids, 7 and 10, celebrating our son-in-law's birthday, and all were well entertained by the hibachi chef. Everyone loved their food choices, even the grandkids. Their is a very nice wine list, reasonably priced, and the cocktails are generous. The service was outstanding. We made a good choice. Hope you do too. We'll be back.

    The service at Miyama is great, and it's also not so noisy making it ideal for work meetings over lunch. I would recommend getting the Monkey Brain appetizer - it leads to discussion, yet it's really good. I've been to Miyama before, but have always had some sort of teriyaki. This time I tried the Take Sushi platter with California, Yellow Tail, and Crunchy Roll sushi. It was delicious.

    Tried out this tepanyaki grill experience for Restaurant Week, and did enjoy it. Food was good, grill chef was capable and entertaining, other staff remarkably courteous and efficient. However at the new Restaurant Week price of $60 for two this was more expensive than usual dinner deals or even regular menu. The restaurant really did not/could not add value to this dining experience from the cost angle. They should throw in a bottle of wine to make it any kind of deal--in the meantime they oddly upcharged the bottle by $1 over what was on the printed wine list, and indeed on their website--do they not think their customers are observant? But we enjoyed it, it would be fun for out-of-town guests, especially with children.

    We ate at one of the Teppen tables - was fine but nothing special. Egg rolls were not good. Gyoza may have been good but no dipping sauce came with them so took a lot away from the full flavor for us. Can't talk very easily among a group because that room is so noisy but if going for the show of the chef and don't want to have to make smalltalk, this would be a great place. If we get down there we may try their regular dining room.
