Messed up a double order (On multiple occasions) of sushi and didn’t bring it out until everyone else was finished. Had to box it to go. They just apologized, but tacked on 18% gratuity in spite of the bad service. Also, my daughter had cold udon noodles but the noodles were all broken in pieces and it cost $15 (definitely NOT worth it!). You charge a lot the food should reflect it.
Very disappointing!!! Need to find another nice Japanese restaurant.

I had the Seasonal Gozen and my husband had the muso black cod entree. Both had the black cod dish but it was not what we expected. It tasted really fishy, no sweetness, and left a bad aftertaste. Maybe it was just today, but we decided this will be our last time.

Three of us went for dinner. The server seemed not aware of the “Sunday Funday $10 Premium Champaign” deal and had to go in the back to confirm its existence. We ordered the sashimi assortment, a rainbow roll, caterpillar roll, negihama roll, karaage, and agedashi tofu. They were out of the oysters and ankimo which was a let down. None of the food had a wow factor. The place was nearly empty at 7:30 on Sunday night. The wine we ordered was good but I don’t think the deal of “Champaign” was actually Champaign, think it was sparkling wine. The server wasn’t attentive. At the end, it wasn’t worth $250.

Yes, but only for lunch. The all you can eat salad bar is nice. For dinner prices are double and NO salad bar. Kinda crazy. I ordered gyoza and it was really burnt. I don’t like eat carcinogenic foods. Service wasn’t that great cause we had to ask for sauces, little dipping plates, etc. If you are going to charge and arm and a leg then you need to give awesome service!!!!

Ise-Shima was a favorite lunch spot when I worked in Torrance so I thought I'd try it for dinner. It was super good and the service was excellent. I had the sashimi plate and it came with a small salad and rice. I wish the salad could have been from the salad bar, which is excellent, but it was still good and I loved the dressing. It was just a bit smaller than expected. The sashimi was very good. Fresh and tasty. My family loved their meals and the restaurant overall. We were seated in a closed off area so it was nice to have some privacy but restaurant was not busy so we were a bit on our own. However, the service was excellent. We were treated beautifully and even got a saki tasting, which was so unexpected but very nice. Prices are a bit higher than expected but worth the money. Highly recommend.

Very expensive no frills dinner for 4. This place is definitely more expensive than a $$ - at least a $$$ and the money is not worth the food and experience.

Enjoyed our special occasion last year but truly disappointed this year ☹️ Service was sporadic - had to ask for everything including refills on tea - which they then brought out a new cup which was scalding hot... complementary birthday dessert was a strange strawberry mousse… Probably thought it was special but not enjoyed by my older daughter parents.. good thing they gave they gave themselves an automatic gratuity of 18% for the nine of us… I certainly would not have!

Awesome Japanese food with great service. We went here for my son's birthday and we all enjoyed everything we ordered. The waiter surprised my son with a birthday sorbet (mango) which was also delicious. Be sure to try the garlic edamame too. It's unique and was very good.

The food and atmosphere was spot on. Didn't feel like a hotel restaurant. The service was excellent and I like the fact that Miyako is a green hotel - paper straws. A very enjoyable evening.

The food was great and priced reasonably. The ambience is perfect. The place was almost full, but people were respectful of others and kept their conversations low. Aside from a minor mixed up with the drinks, everything was perfect. I’ll definitely come back

Usually great service and food but today service was very slow and subpar. We were the only table for the most of the time but couldn’t get water refills, order, or get additional items without tracking down a server....and we were never served 2 of the dishes ordered, including the large chef sushi platter to share as an appetizer (sort of the reason why we come here!) We were party of 10 for a birthday party so it was really disappointing when 18% tip is prefilled on the check. Service received Definitely didn’t deserve that much. Again, we usually have great experience and management is always wonderful so it was truly disappointing.

Order was incomplete - had to ask for ginger, ponzu etc. incorrect rice provided. Could have been an off day as they said a server was out unexpectedly. Just OK when it should be much better.

We always enjoy going to Ise-Shima because of their consistency in food and service. The breakfast buffet is wonderful with both Japanese and American cuisine. Nothing fancy, but good variety and consistency you can count on. The cook to order Chief is always willing to go out of his way to please you with the any crazy concoction you're willing to come up with. The restaurant manager is always a friendly face and very thankful for your patronage. Wish there were more places like this one. Domo arigato!
