Makoto Ratings and Reviews
By far the best tasting vegetable fried rice I’ve ever had! So very flavorful! Drink s a bit small for the price ! I had a pineapple martini! I loved the atmosphere. The fruit dessert recommended was to die for ! The waitress was very helpful and spot on with her recommendations when asked !!!!!
The recorded music was so loud that it felt like there were 100 live musicians sitting next to me playing as loud as the possibly could. When I asked management to turn the sound level down just a bit, I was told they could not do that as it would ruin the ambiance. I certainly enjoy music while dining, but not when I can't hear myself think!
The food is excellent and the menu is exceptional. The noise level inside is very loud and not conducive to conversation. What I don't like is that they bring the dish when it is ready rather in in the sequence the meal should be served. We got our vegetables 15 minutes after the main dish was served. I eat here frequently but it can be so much better .
It was terrible experience this time . When we arrive they asked 20 minutes for get to table ready for outside. We walked around and they called for say to table is ready . Than we went there, they said the table is getting ready just wait couple of minutes. After they called us we were wait 20 minutes more with 2 kids at the door . Then someone show us a table and we sat down. After that about 3 or 4 waitresses come and ask us that we are sitting right table or not !!!! It was really annoying .
I am fan Of the Makoto food but this time the food are sloppy. We could get taste as good as we used to.
We had lunch at Makoto last Sunday, my husband and me.
We enjoyed very much the experience, the food was amazing and delicious, ambience and service very nice. Beside oriental dishes we ordered a whole grilled branzino that was perfect. We recomend this restaurant
The ambiance was beautiful, nice looking crowd, a nice hum of activity. Almost immediately we were shocked by just how horrible the service was. The hostess and wait staff nearly ignored us and when we did get their attention they were short and rude. They were in such a hurry that they did not even make it all the way around our table for drink orders. When we called a waiter over the look on his face clearly showed that we were disturbing him. They have no apparent order in how they deliver dishes to the table and almost never knew who to place the dish in front of. The restaurant has amazing food and charges top, top dollar for it ( a two piece serving of sushi averages $21). The nine of us worked up a tab well over $1,000 but we were treated like pond scum. As much as this may have been the best sushi I have ever had I will never return. If they hate people so much perhaps they should consider other careers
Siempre q estamos en Miami vamos 3 o /4 veces a Makoto . Nos encanta la comida es alucinante ! Y sabores distintos . Lo malo es q aunque siempre reservamos antes de ir Siempre tenemos q esperar Nunca esta nuestra mesa . Y no reservan afuera q es la parte más linda ya q adentro hay mucho olor a comida y no se puede hablar .
Makoto does not disappoint. The Spicy Tuna Rice appetizer, chicken dumplings, and Miso Sea Bass were spectacular. You cannot get these dishes anywhere else with this degree of flavor and execution. The portions are small so do not be afraid to order plenty of food. The service was also very good.
