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 and 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 150 guests at Mikado where the food is the show! Arigato!

Waited at least 15 minutes beyond our booked time and took some time before anyone came to takeba drinks order. Food was good and the chef entertaining.

A very fun experience! My SO had never been to a teppan-yaki restaurant so the show by the chef was new and fun for her. Food was good, waitstaff was excellent. Worth the $$

Valentine’s with my kids and husband.
First dinner date for valentines we decided to show our teen boys what dating should look and feel like .
We had made a month plan to go to this restaurant for the sole fact it would be kid friendly and there was a boat that would be romantic to show them the awe of the night.Upon arrival to the Marriott @ 6:20pm we did not see the boat in the dock so walked around to the restaurant and seen the boat pull away from the restaurant.We arrived 6:30pm we asked the hostess at the front if we could possibly check in early and run back to ride the boat back to the restaurant . She informed me NO that would be too long once we call your party we do not wait for you and since it’s busy tonight we do not have the 15minute grace period. This reaction scared us enough to not even risk it and check in 30 minutes early as our reservation was at 7 pm. The host continued to speak in such tone “ so what do you want to do ?” Once I said let’s just check in .She said” ok well here is the prefixed Valentines menu is this ok ? “ I replied wait I made the reservations under the impression there was no prefix because on open table they did not say there was a pre fix. Her reply “ well ya that’s not our fault we don’t own open table “ that comment of hers shocked me so much. I replied I am aware you don’t own them but also aware that they do state if there is a prefix menus for valentines as this was not something I wanted for valentines I avoided all the prefix restaurants on open table on purpose. So felt like a big bate and switch. The problem was not that alone it was the hostess way on not caring then continuing to say” well so are you ok with it or not ? I have others I need to check in and if you don’t want it you can go ride the boat and go to another restaurant .” Needless to say this was crazy as then we waiting till 7:20 to be seated due to the other party being Late Really !! The food was amazing the chef and servers was amazing.

Great Valentine’s Day dinner with the family. Two of our family members are vegetarian and they charged us less for their meals even though they had a limited menu for $75 a person. We also appreciated the little desert at the end. Just the perfect size, since we were so full.

Had a great experience and the food was super. We had to wait quite a while for a chef and that took some time. But very enjoyable time.

Our chef was a true hi light. Tons of personality and good with interaction believe his name was Scott. He had our party and the whole table next to us engaged. Our table cooked food was excellent kitchen prepared not so good. Shrimp Tempura rather soggy, to much dressing on salad ruining the balance of flavors.
Miso soup tepid.

I took my mom and friends here for her birthday. The atmosphere was fun but overpriced for the food quality. I would go somewhere else if I was going to spend the kind of money spent. For example, the desert they brought my mom was an old brownie with old vanilla ice cream. The price for food and adult beverages for six was nearly $600!

We enjoyed our dinner at Mikado. Good and tasty food. Skilled chef. Pleasant service. BUT... Wine pours seemed skimpy for the prices charged. Decor and fixtures are getting to be worn and tired. Floor could use a good scrubbing.

We made a reservation. When we arrived, this is the first restaurant at which we were not made to feel welcome at all. The hostess did not greet us, but she made us feel like we were being grilled, asking us if we planned to have their main course at their common dining tables, or to have appetizers. We were not sure and hoped to make that decision to have either at our table. Turns out we had no option but to have their sit down Japanese dinner with seating around the chef, or sit in the lounge if we wanted sushi rolls and appetizers. This was not at all explained on their website. The lounge is small and has very limited un-comfortable seating, appearing more to be a place where people just grab a quick drink before heading into the main seating area. We did order sushi rolls and a drink, which were all fine. When were leaving the hostess did not make any effort to thank us for coming, or even acknowledge us, which she had ample time to do as there was no one checking in. Very disappointed. We will not be back.

Steak was tough and cooked well although I said rare to medium rare.
