    This is our third time here. The menu always has such interesting Choices with great flavors. It's always hard to choose! Portions are large, great value, but the main thing is the way the food taste! Everyone at our table really enjoyed their meal. An absolute must is the trout bruschetta! Looking forward to going back!

  • Local ingredients w Asian flair

    Mizuna is a low key restaurant perfect for a special occasion or just to enjoy the high quality local food prepared with a subtle Asian influence. They offer two menus - one for vegetarian/vegan diners and another for carnivores. We chose dishes from the carnivore menu. We shared the babyback boar ribs on gorgonzola thyme latkes w blueberry chipotle BBQ sauce - so tender and flavorful we didn't need knives. I had the seared duck served w heirloom carrots, wild rice in a citrus vinaigrette all drizzled w lavender honey. The duck fat was perfectly rendered and the drizzle of honey lent that tiny bit of sweetness to counterbalance the richness of the dish. Dessert was flourless chocolate cake w candied ginger and a blood orange reduction.

    A local friend had recommended this as their favorite place, so we were expecting a nice experience. But it was more. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful, and just the right amount of attentive. Recommendations were spot on. Food was amazing - I loved the incredibly fresh veggies done just right and the complex flavors of the curry. The flourless chocolate torte with ginger was an amazing finish to a fine evening. This restaurant makes me wish I lived in Spokane!

    We ordered a half vegan roasted beet and lentil salad and the field roast/shiitake mushroom lettuce wraps. The salad was rather plain without the chevre. The lettuce wraps were outstanding and a highlight of the meal. I ordered the cauliflower and eggplant samosas, and my wife had the Chinese five spice planet tofu. My dish was excellent and I'd recommend it to anyone. The tofu was overpowered by fennel but tasted great with the polenta and apple chutney that it was served with. The staff was attentive and pleasant, great atmosphere, though the view of Macy's wasn't very inspiring but unavoidable. Due to quality of ingredients and homemade preparation, the plates are a bit pricey for budget conscious customers.

    The food is consistently among the best in town. The Portuguese Clams first plate I had was easily enough for a main course for one or to share with two. The thickened broth was the best I've ever had. My other loved the trout with risotto.

    I went to Mizuna with two others on a Tuesday evening. Really glad I made reservations though because it was packed when we showed up! Service was a little slow because of the full house , I think there was a show at the INB that evening. We ordered the gnocchi, stuffed portobello mushrooms, and duck entrees. It was all delicious! Love the marble tables. No wine for us that night but there was a varied list available. Great atmosphere.

    We were lucky enough to have an evening away from our 2 year old for our anniversary, but we did bring our 8 month old with us and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. He behaved himself very well and allowed us to enjoy an amazing meal! I knocked off two foods from my foodie bucket list and enjoyed every bite! I just wish we had left room for desert :)

    While the ambience and service was good, the food just didn't deliver. I had great expectations based on the menu descriptions for my meal. I selected a Quinoa salad appetizer and then trout with risotto. While the Quinoa was flavorful, the texture was off. It was very wet and not at all fluffy. The trout tasted like it had been covered with sugar and the risotto was a mushy mess. The portion sizes also seemed extremely large. I couldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Drove through Spokane on our way to and from a Montana wedding....and we had dinner here both nights! After a total of 4 dishes and 2 desserts, wish we lived close enough for another meal. Salmon, pork chops, clams... all superb. But the sesame crusted ahi salad was a repeat dish. Delicious!! In addition to the great food, our service was efficient and relaxed thanks to Jordan. She remembered every detail of our first visit (including which family member was getting married). A wonderful experience all-around.

    We had a very pleasant experience here. The servers were very engaging and personable. It was relatively quiet early for a Friday, but was full by 7:30 or so. Our table had a halibut special, and seafood pappardelle, and the chicken. It was all good, but we were hoping for excellent. The highly touted carrot cake pleased one who doesn't normally like carrot cake, but didn't thrill those who do. It's still a good spot for downtown and we will likely return on another trip.

    I really love Mizuna! It is cozy in the winter with the exposed brick interior and seasonal menu. There is really nothing like it on a nice summer evening when you can sit outside under the bistro lights with a glass of wine. I cannot go there without ordering the Ahi Salad (I have had it 3 times in the last 2 weeks!!) because it is so fresh, light, perfectly seasoned, and a generous portion of fish. The sweet potato quesadilla is tasty too! I definitely can never pass up the vegan carrot cake - always most, a nice spice aspect and never disappoints. I know people can be weary of a vegan dessert, but trust me, you will not regret it! The service is always a little scattered, but everyone is sweet and knowledgeable. Be patient.

    The food here was divine. My husband is a meataholic and even he loved the vegetarian dishes. This place puts Cafe Flora in Seattle to shame. The meat dishes especially the smoke trout were also very good. Service was excellent and the restaurant is huge but feels cozy and romantic. The only thing I didn't care for was dessert it was too sweet for my tastes.

    My daughter wanted a quiet, intimate dinner with immediate family and a close friend for her college graduation celebration. I chose this restaurant based on reviews on line, months ahead of time, from another state. It was perfect that I could make reservations months ahead of time and have confirmation of these reservations. We celebrated with wonderful champagne and incredible appetizers. The trout brochette was agreed by all to be the most incredible. I chose a vegetarian option of grilled vegetables which was fantastic. And my other family members who love meat were equally pleased with their meals. We all chose different options and everyone was impressed. It was a lovely meal and evening.

    Everything on the menu is very tempting, so the choices are difficult. Dining partner ordered the duck breast which was cooked perfectly. My order was the special of the evening, Marlin, also cooked just to the right degree. I will mention that the accompaniments were a little over-done. It was a very busy night in town, so service was a little slow, but that was just fine since we had time to enjoy the meal and didn't feel rushed to finish as things slowed down. The server was knowledgeable about the offerings and the wine list. The atmosphere is very contemporary and casual while it is fine dining. Slightly pricey, but worth it. There are not many comparable menus in town. The cheese plate starter: great!

    My wife came to town for a graduation. We are from Chicago. Found Mizuna on Open Table, great reviews and gave it a try for late night wine and a couple plates. Fantastic! We're seated outside with a great Oregon Pinot Noir, some olive tapenade, a beet salad and some house made bread. Couldn't have been lovelier. Great service by Jordan. Next time in Spokane, will be there again.

    My wife and I enjoyed our evening at Mizuna. The waiter was professional and appropriate, however he didn't know the wine list very well because when I ordered a glass of Shiraz, he had to look at my menu to see it. The ambiance was what we expected given the prices, but the bread was pretty average - probably a baguette from costco. Of course, we're suckers for bread, so we ate it all anyways. Looking back, I might've expected something more memorable or homemade. The meal was very good, but I have to say, I was expecting a bit more creativity or artistry on the plate based on prices and previous reviews. Overall, Mizuna was a nice night out, but I think I'd look around for other options before going again.

    Very disappointing experience. Were seated in " New" section. Bland, no art, very noisy. our server was rude and impatient. Our food took forever and when my husband inquired about it our server snapped that the kitchen was overwhelmed by a party of 18. We had reservations so not just walk ins they were trying to accommodate. I had the special manicotti which was very bland worth a thin sauce. our friend had the special lamb chops which came out cold. Overall a very expensive and disappointing experience.
