LOVE the barbecue squid. Was really chewy and they replaced it fairly quickly with one that was their usual outstanding quality. Our waiter was okay - did not check in too often though. Always great sushi!!

Never had a bad meal at Mikado. The service is excellent and the sushi, robata, etc. is delicious.

even if the price is a little more than other places, it's absolutely worth it to treat yourself.

The staff at the front were rude and took far to long to seat us for our reservation. They were more concerned about what kind of mask my wife was wearing rather than just seating us and letting us start our meal. Then the server was sub-par , my wife waited for her drink for 20 minutes until I had to remind him. We won’t be returning.

Eaten there many times before. This time service was poor. Our bento boxes where cold and the beef chewy. One of our sushi roll was not the same as we had had on previous trips. The waiter was full of excuses ( “ sometime the beef is tough”)

Love going to Mikado. It's that type of place to go if you want your meal to be a little more special without being overly snooty. The food is wonderful and beautifully presented. The customer service is just as good. Highly recommend.

The food was good but it was the service that made my experience a great one. When ordering the food I asked how the steak was cooked (I am 6 months pregnant and need it to be well done) and she looked at my belly, smiled and said well done. When receiving the bill, I noticed that she made a note on the tempura shrimp to make sure that they were well done as well. It seems like a small thing to do, but the fact that she went over and above to ensure the safety of myself and my unborn baby did not go unnoticed! So thank you very much, Winky!

We ordered eight items. The first two came, then 6 dishes came at the same time, only the soup was hot. Everything else was room temperature to cold. It leads us to believe they waited for everything to be ready and brought it all together. Very disappointing! The manager didn’t handle it well, he just kept repeating, it looks like you don’t like the quality of our food and we can’t meet your expectations! What the f*** Then we realized the quality of the food is actually going down because they are too busy! As we left there is a huge lineup of people waiting to be seated and 10 bags for Uber and deliveries. Very sad!

Such wonderful service… The food is always good… Endless tea… They are definitely taking precautions and have the tables spaced appropriately with guards etc. My favourite for sushi on the southside.

The food always tastes good. The people besides our room were noisy. Maybe you should ask your guests before they come in to lower their voices when talking to each other. Thanks

Pot of green tea goes well with deep fried tofu and mixed tempura perfectly crunchy and light. For desert choose hot sake with nigiri. My favorites are bene sake, hotate, Toro, ika, chop chop, and ikura with uzura. :)

We went to The Mikado because our grandson wanted sushi for his 18th birthday dinner. They placed us in a private room with a table. Would have been nice to be in one of the rooms where you sit on the floor. But on reflection, the table was a better idea being we had a 3 year old with us. The food was very tasty and well presented. We definitely would go back.
