Mizu Prime Steak & Sushi reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Worst meal/service I have
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Worst meal/service I have ever had. Took 2 hours just to get first course and after that they ran out of rice for sushi. The manager acted like he didn't care. Will never go back. Definitely not what we had in mind for a new years dinner.

    This was our second trip to Mizu, and we loved it as much as the first time...possibly even more! However, we were very disappointed to learn that they will be closing after New Years Eve 2013! The staff tells us they were unable to renew their lease, so this fabulous restaurant will be no longer...and will be sorely missed. The attentive service, the expansive menu of steaks, seafood, and sushi, as well as the wonderfully compiled wine list will all be missing from the Bee Cave/Lakeway dining scene. I hope the chef and staff resurface somewhere else soon...and that they tell the world where they are...as this one is/was truly a gem.

    My daughter, granddaughter and I had dinner at Mizu. The food was very good (Calamari for appetizer, Rockin tuna roll and diver scallops for entrees)and they provided my granddaughter with her own "special order" of steamed rice and soy sauce (three bowls!!!). They were very attentive and the waiter even made made a paper "rose" around one of the forks for the little one! We had a great time, a great meal and will definitely go back for another meal when we get the chance.

    This is our 3rd trip here and we do live quite a distance away. We have no problems making the trip because we know its going to be good and is always worth the time. For a sushi place the steaks are really good and the servers are knowledgeable. The only downfall is the service is usually really slow so make sure you have plenty of time allocated regardless of when you show up. Also this is listed as french but is more spanish/japanese then anything else. Still highly recommend !

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    We enjoyed Mizu. The sushi tasted fresh and had interesting flavors, not just the plain standard rolls. Started with the Rock Shrimp appetizer. Some pieces were a bit undercooked and gummy and I didn't care too much for the accompaniment, but overall if was good. Think drink prices and sake were a bit expensive. We will go again.

    Then the real treated started when a less the friendly waitress stopped by to take our drink orders. She seemed put out to even talk to us and by the look on her face had no interest in serving our table. During ordering she kept telling me the price like I couldn’t afford to eat there which was really insulting. I haven’t been treated that bad in 20 years of eating out. She made me feel like I was a homeless guy begging for food. During the meal she never stopped by or brought silverware for us to use. The only time she talked to me after taking the order was to inform me that she had already added 18% tip to the bill since I have 4 adults and 2 kids and that the policy was parties over six have this added. Horrible Service dont go!!!!

    Service was terrible. It took our waiter fifteen minutes to even acknowledge us and then several more minutes to take our drink order. Then he forgot the ice tea for one of our party of four and we had to ask for it. He got our appetizer order wrong and we had to wait another fifteen minutes for something as simple as Edamame. He brought oysters Rockafeller instead of on the half shell. The food is ok but overpriced for what you get. Uchi and Uchiko are much better values and much better service. This is our third time there and I've never been impressed but this was by far the worst experience. We won't go back.

    I have not been back to Mizu in a few months but have always head it to the highest regard on amazing sushi and rolls. But this weekend when I took an out of town friend there for dinner, Mizu failed to deliver on so many levels. There sushi/ roll list has been knocked down to half a page when in the past there was a whole other book for their rolls and sushi. Actually there were only 8 rolls and maybe 10 sushi dishes. The wasbi was chalky and even after adding a whole dob of it to my soy sauce there was no kick. The rolls failed to deliver in punch and taste. Our waiter was great minus that he would disappear for a whole ten minutes throughout our dinner. We ended up having to ask other waiters for refills and to order other courses

    One of the best views in the Hill Country. The calamari was outstanding (coming from calamari nuts!). Filet was buttery smooth (a little undercooked - had ordered medium, more rare than expected) and tasted great. Scallops were cooked and flavored very well. Garlic mash potatoes were smooth and very tasty. For dessert we ordered the Ginger Creme Brulee, which we thought might be too Gingery, but was not, very smooth, light hint of Ginger, terrific. Waitress was one of the most attentive we've ever had, always pleasant, appeared to know the menu and food preparation by heart, servings were always timely, and we never had to ask for anything that she had not already anticipated. Great dining experience. A real gem.

    We had been planning to go here for a long time. We started at the bar because we were early for our reservation. Great happy hour specials! We moved to our regular table and the server was attentive at first but it quickly went downhill from there. My friend had to place an order for her salad twice because he forgot the first time. Then the beets were still on the salad even though she asked to have them omitted. He didn't come and check on us even though he was attending to tables all around us. The food was excellent (I had the strip steak) and my wife ordered some sushi. Our friends had a sushi/sashimi platter and a chicken entree. (We won't order the crawfish roll again it was a little chewy) but overall a great meal.

    The decor and food were both very good. Our server lacked confidence, but was attentive and timely. The noise, however, was horrible. We were there on a Tuesday night and only two other tables were occupied. But the noise from the sushi bar and kitchen was unacceptable. The sushi chefs were slamming stacks of dishes throughout the evening and the kitchen was handling flatware that sounded like it was being moved rather vigorously. Lots of banging and clanging. It interrupted our conversation on numerous occasions and ruined what would otherwise be a tranquil atmosphere. That lack of concern for guests' enjoyment is rude and would prevent me from going back. Does the staff not realize their actions can be heard throughout the room?

    So it's a little out of the way... The payoff is in amazing views and absolutely delicious food. The sushi rolls = among the best I've eaten in Austin (I'm a fan of uchi). Aside from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hill country, the dining area is open, airy, modern, but inviting. Good date place, plus the drinks are pretty fantastic, too.

    Very excited to go here. Heard good things and first time we tried to go, it was closed. We waited and waited and they reopened and we finally got to experience it. The decor and view were awesome! Took pics and posted because it was so lovely. BUT then the service started. Waiter seemed new to waiting tables which would be fine for a Chili's or Denny's but not here. We chose the Chef's Tasting Menu thinking we would be getting the "best" dishes of the night.BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! 1st waiter brought course on top of course without letting us enjoy the one in front of us. The dishes were presented poorly and did not have good taste. One dish had goat cheese and something else and it was just a bowl of mush.

The restaurant overlooks the hill country- I'd recommend dining before the sun goes down so you can enjoy the view. We loved the maguro sashimi which is a type of raw tuna which they serve in a delicious sauce with goat cheese. The salmon entree was also delicious...cooked and seasoned just right. I'd also recommend the crawfish specialty sushi roll....to die for. Overall this place exceeded my expectations. It's pricy but after you try dining there, you'll understand why. It's worth the 35 minute +/- drive from Austin.

    The food was wonderful, but it took 3 hours to get through a five course meal including sushi, shasimi, salad, entree and dessert.. We waited approximately 20 minute after finishing one course before the next arrived. We were exhausted by the time we finished. The waiter explained that the sushi bar was backed up, but that didn't explain why the entrees took so long--just ordered a steak. Then, it was explained that the bread pudding would take 15 minutes (it would have been nice to know earlier in the meal) but 15 minutes later they brought out a cheesecake instead. We didn't want that so waited another 15 minutes for the bread pudding--which was delicious.

    Mizu does it again! We were at Mizu for the first time since they re-opened and were not sure what we would find. Happily, things were the same as before and we had a great meal with some friends. The only drawback was that the Sushi kitchen was running behind so we waited longer than usual for our food. The good news was that the waiter kept us informed about the delay so we weren't kept in the dark. We will be back to visit this neighborhood gem very soon!

    My girlfriend and I went there for her 30th birthday on a Monday night. Upon arriving our table was ready and was right next to the big rear windows. We were greeted by our (not so knowledgeable) waitress shortly after to place our drink orders. It was during this time I had figured out why you don't make a restaurant of that size with wood floors and rock walls (LOUD). We had proceeded to order dinner starting off with oysters Rockefeller which were amazing! From there we proceeded to the sushi rolls. My girlfriend and I LOVE sushi and probably eat it once a week. I have to be honest, the sushi was mediocre. I am used to eating at restaurants where tabs are around 80-120 but I couldn't believe ours was $94 with as little as we ordered.
