Delicious and a perfect evening for sitting out on the patio.
went there on a recommendation , I was visiting Miami with my son. definitely will visit again
Be ready to shell out cash. It’s pricey indeed but quality is good and worth the value.
Skirt steak was really delish, sashimi platter was fresh and offered a good variety. The Nigiri was pricey but high quality.
It’s really packed and they will only hold your table for 15 mins!
good as always.
the spicy tuna crispy rice and the salmon truffle ponzu are a must.
Another excellent meal at Makoto. We will be back next time we’re in town!!
Makoto is a wonderful Asian Fusion restaurant that never disappoints. We had a wonderful meal and great service.
The food was good as usual, the cocktails were terrible as usual. Really don’t understand how the same restaurant group that owns Upland and Steak 954, where the drinks are fabulous, can continue to accept this status quo. The drinks are not cheap yet they barely contain any alcohol, like drinking fruit punch, the drinks don’t even fill up the martini glass as well. Oblivious. I guess as long as they pack them in, they don’t care. Regards. Ned.
Although we arrived early, (5:45pm) the noise level was already bouncing off the walls. We moved from the table to the sushi bar to see if we could get some peace. The food was very good, especially the hamachi with ponzu and the fatty tuna on crispy rice. Grilled avocado was interesting and the shiitake were nicely cooked and presented. But the overall experience was almost like eating in a busy airport -- loud, hectic and when large groups were being served the wait staff was a bit taxed.
Favorite place now! Best tuna crispy rice that I've ever had🍣
As usual, good food & service
Excelente lugar , la comida espectacular como siempre !
not bad, but edamame was not so good, like other dishes
Spectacular food as always!!
My Fiancé and I had an amazing time! The food was great our server was wonderful. Absolutely perfect experience.
Thank you for your gracious welcome and care from all staff. Already looking forward to our return. xo
Great food and always a nice time. A pretty girl sent me a drink from the other side of the restaurant. How do you beat that ?
Service could have been better based on the price we paid.
Siri was amazing!!!
She helped us select Great wonderful food!!
It was very noisy and busy when we arrived , the hostess told us to wait at the door even though we arrived on time , but I guess this happens a lot , given that this was Saturday night. The hostess was not friendly nor attentive, they sat down my daughter , while I went outside and when I came back they were not sure where she was.
The appetizers we ordered : Wagu Carpaccio and Dynamite hand roll were very good ! The sauce from carpaccio is absolutely delicious and used it with Frosty Wagyu fried rice, which was also very good and had an interesting combination of foie grass and egg , by this time the little table they gave us was full of big plates and It was extremely uncomfortable . We ordered couple of maki , one of which was lobster , and it was nothing special , in my opinion was not worth $35. As the table got filled with plates ,I knocked my glass while reaching for an appetizer at the other side if the table and cut my hand, they didn’t say , they are sorry , they just cleaned the glass and gave me a band aid. Our waitress was nice and helpful overall. It is a nice place to go eat , but not for Saturday night dinner , I think, as it is in the middle of the mall and it doesn’t promote that Saturday night atmosphere, it’s a good place for lunch, when you are out shopping or a weekday dinner with someone , who appreciates good Japanese cuisine.
The food is phenomenal. The drinks are never great though.
I simply did not think that the hype was justified. The food was fine, not fantastic, for what the price was.
Good food, a little overpriced but overall very nice
Había mucha gente y la atención no fue buena Tardaron un montón en tomar el pedido y entregar la comida
Usually would give all 5 stars, but today the waitress seemed not to care much about our table and would always take forever to come take our order, ask if everything was fine, etc...
Toujours une fête devant cette excellente nourriture.
Excellent! Everything about this place is great. I drive 45 minutes almost every week to enjoy lunch here on the weekend. I only had one bad service experience in about 50 times dining there and the manager made sure to make everything right after this happened. Absolutely love it and everyone should try it. Excellent food and not extremely overpriced. 5 stars
Creative menu. Excellent preparation.
We very much enjoyed a birthday dinner at the sushi bar. Great service, great food.
The prices do not match the food quality and service. The ponzu salmon and eggplant robata were highlights to an otherwise boring, expensive meal. Some things were terrible including a burnt,dried-out frosty wagyu fried rice and a weird, bland fruit toban yaki dessert. The cocktails were not up to par with the craft prices either.
The best ceviche I ever had !!! everything we ordered was delicious !
Great cuisine and friendly service. Always enjoy this restaurant !
Nous sommes des bons clients fideles de Makato et nous prenons toujours le meme menu. Cette fois ci, on nous a apporte les entrees et les plats ensemble. Nous avons appele notre serveur et lui avons dit de reprendre le plat principal et nous laisser apprecier notre entree.
Des notre entree terminee on nous a rapporte notre viande, celle a qui avait ete preparee au tout debut du repas. Ell etait inmangeable. Nous avons demande a voir un responsable.
Celui-ci nous a ecoute, puis nous a « souhaite que notre prochain repas dans ce restaurant se passe le mieux possible....... »
Nous etions 4 et avons paye 350 $. Aucune excuse, aucun dedommagement, aucun desset ne nous a ete propose,
Tres decus par cette attitude!
Food was great. Service went down the last half of the meal. Restaurant was so loud people literally screaming
Quite simply, it was the best meal any one of the five of us had ever eaten. The food was spectacular and the service was wonderful. From the mouth watering small plates (tuna pizza, dumplings) through the dessert, everything was visually stimulating and delicious. The flavors were unique, even for the basics like miso soup.
General comment, not specific to this restaurant, I would love to see more slave-free/ fair trade chocolate options.
Very good !!
Ambiance would have been better if it wasn’t in a mall. Other that that, excellent experience.
Great dinner. Great server
We had a phenomenal meal. We were a group of 4 celebrating my husbands birthday. Every dish we tried was delicious! Our server was attentive and friendly. We had a great time!
The best Japanese in Miami, all plates that we taste we love.
The watermelon Carpaccio and the wagyu carpaccio are our favorites.
