Japanese
The ancient tradition of the Samurai lives on at Mikado where knife-twirling chefs use fire and steam to create a mouth watering menu of steak, chicken and seafood delights. The highlight of the experience is the dazzling talents of your chef as he expertly chops, juggles, jokes and prepares an incredible meal right before your eyes. While you are led to your table through our private Japanese garden, notice the Koi swimming below and the sound of cascading waterfalls.

Mikado at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa is known throughout the Coachella Valley and Southern California as the leader in authentic Teppan-Yaki Dining.

But it doesn’t stop there! East meets West at the ultimate sushi bar where you can relax and enjoy the freshest foods and a signature martini or sake. Celebrate an intimate gathering or a private function up to 140 guests at Mikado where the food is the show! Arigato!

"Please note that Mikado Restaurant reservations are not inclusive of a boat tour."

    We enjoyed our experience as a couple. The balance of the table was a family enjoying a birthday celebration so there was little of the rapport at the table we usually experience. That, of course, is not the establishment's fault.

    It’s not Benihana. The filet mignon was the best thing. The wait was the worst thing. It’s was one hour from the time of our reservation to the time we had the first bite of food. The ride up from the hotel on the boat was amazing. The prices vs. the level of service was not worth it.

    We took our 10 year old granddaughter to dinner and it was the best dinner experience. The chef was fabulous. He interacted with everyone, especially the children present. He did lots of tricks and shrimp flipping. The food was awesome. Look forward to our next trip to Palm Springs and Mikado.

    Food and cook were excellent. Overall service was terrible. The clean-up crew started clearing the area while most of us were still eating. They also hovered as if we were taking too long to finish our meals. They obviously wanted to start preparing for the next group. It is not our fault if the cook/entertainer left little time for us to enjoy our food and conversation. Never again!

    I don’t know why people like this. I think people get so excited about getting a shrimp thrown into their mouth like a dolphin at seaworld. I can make stir fry at home that tastes just as good Overpriced and if you have been to a teppanyaki restaurant in the last 40 years it’s exactly the same nothing has changed. Overpriced average food. Good only if you have never done it

    Did not realize it was a hibachi restaurant, but our chef and waiter were great, drinks were great, food was tasty but I thought I would be getting a whole uncut steak and it was served cubed up hibachi style, still delicious though. Sushi was also very good and filling.

    We were really looking forward to go to Mikado after 20 years. We had such fun memories from back then. Unfortunately, the experience from yesterday was not as pleasant. Our teppanyaki chef was not as entertaining and had issues with counting out proportions for each guests and he also mixed up orders. Filet mignons were ordered to be cooked at least three different temperatures, however, all of them were made the same way - almost well done. The server who helped out with bringing soups, salads and ice creams basically threw the dishes front of us. The flavors were seriously underwhelming. We ordered chicken, filet mignon and fried rice. All three items were very bland and flavorless, including the vegetables. The only person who enjoyed the food was our 16 years old son. But at that age, he would eat anything and everything. The portions were generous and our entire group sitting at this teppanyaki grill had lot of leftovers. However, only two people requested the remains to be packaged to go. I think that says it all. Paying @ $60/person for food only, we expected more flavors and our meat to be done the way we requested it.

    Great food and great service. Had the mikado combo and the mikado shrimp. Everything was seasoned and prepared very well. We also had the California roll (we are obviously not real sushi people, but everyone loves their sushi too), which was so really good too! Always fresh and high quality. And the finer sauce….yum! One of our favorites in the desert!
