Great mix of skewers, sushi
Great mix of skewers, sushi and hot entrees; something to please anyone. They offer a basket of many different sake glasses and allow you to choose your own; a very small thing that was very unique and enjoyable for our group.

great food - uneven service
I liked the food - we chose the sushi and salads and some starters - all very good -
but the service was erratic - we sat for 10 minutes after being seated
and then had to wave someone down to get water - we had to wave
someone down again before we could order the food - and then I had
wave people down three more times to get more water, more tea and finally the check -

J-food expertise shows thru and thru in flavor and presentation. Would be tops with a bit more support/service staff to take care of guests' needs and make for a great dining experience. Still, well worth the wait.

Nice sake collection. Not much in stock apparently as they ran out of several we ordered but the waiter was well trained and did a fine job recommending.

Delicious and homey
What a wonderful, cozy restaurant! My niece and I went here after reading a Yelp review about the unique and very fresh sushi - we were not disappointed! Food was artfully prepared and melted in our mouths. We were especially fond of the Sawara (fresh eel), Miruguy (clam), and totally enjoyed the Dragon, Dynamite and Spider rolls. The atmosphere was casual, but service was very attentive without being intrusive (they never let our water glasses get empty!) And our server's descriptions of the different fish reminded me of a sommelier discussing wine! Great experience, will go back for sure! Thank you!!

Good sushi on College Ave!
Went here based on a recommendation of a friend. Loved the food. The service was amazing. The space was tiny with exactly as many tables (and chairs at the sushi bar) that can be squeezed into a space that size and still have enough space to walk in or out of the restaurant between tables.
Great sushi. Wonderful tempura. Prices moderate, but the quality of the fish makes it "worth the $$".
At meal times, I'd definitely recommend a reservation, but Opentable.com makes online reservations easy as 1, 2, 3. We arrived and there was a "reserved" sign on our table. I almost felt like a VIP. :)
Will DEFINITELY eat there again. CAREFUL!!! The road back to Hwy 24 is NOT the one you take off the freeway. Plan ahead!!!

Wonderful sushi. Wonderful
Wonderful sushi. Wonderful cooked entrees. I drove the 25 miles from home to Mitama on the recommendation of a client, and have been back at least once each month since then. Most nights you don't need a reservation, but weekends it's a great bet. I've always been able to get a same-day reservation and most nights I didn't need it after 6PM. Based on the quality of the food, and the Japanese staff's attentive service, my wife and I are surprised this place doesn't have a line out the door every night.

As always, wonderful food,
As always, wonderful food, wonderful staff. My wife and I routinely drive half an hour each way to eat at Mitama, and it's worth every second in the car.
