We arrived early and were seated right away. Ambiance was nice. Not too loud when we got there. Our server Jin was amazing. Super friendly and gave good recommendations on food items. The food presentation was amazing! The sushi chefs did a wonderful job. Lobster Roll and Spider Roll were gigantic, which is good for us because we were hungry. But I would recommend the server telling telling that they are bigger than your average roll just in case. Tempura green tea was a great way to end the night. Highly recommend and would def be back.

I love the food. Hamachi collar and black cod are delicious! Drinks are fantastic. However, your service, although super nice, is horribly slow and uncoordinated! They even forget to clear the table before bringing out food. I had to giggle. Especially when there are so many staff, some not doing much at all and moving at a snail’s pace. It took 3 people to serve just my friend and I. I even helped them out by clearing up the table so they could put the plates down. I don’t want to sound like a know it all but some good intense training can go a long way. Every single time I have eaten there it is at least 45-60 minutes before food comes out. I’ve been there probably a dozen times or more. For my birthday last year, party of 10, your staff took 2 hours to get food out though I booked at least 1-2 weeks ahead. They mixed up all our orders with so many servers. I have a shellfish allergy so it was extremely dangerous. Some food came out over an our before the first food came out. Service time was close to 2 hours before everyone got to eat! It was a gong show. I come back because I like the food and everyone is nice there. Because they can’t time manage well, just go with two people or max 4. Mikado, please train your staff. Hire someone in to train even. FYI I have been a waitress for 5 years before. It makes a huge difference with proper training. Seriously train. Have the server shadow the trainer. Then have the trainer overlook the server and give feedback. Click the server and clock the kitchen staff. Don’t forget that kitchen staff is way too slow. Too many chefs! Also find a more efficient way to take orders for example by tablets per table where the waitress can do it or we can do it ourselves. This would go straight to kitchen and prioritize. Ok enough unsolicited advice. I just want Mikado to do better. I would go there more often if service got better. I’ll still come by. Hopefully, you take my comments to heart.

Mikado has and is one of my favourite spots to go to, so as usual the food never disappoints. My favourite part of this location is the fact that they have fresh oysters - those are honestly amazing! I would've preferred a room area (mentioned in my booking) but overall it wasn't too bad. I prefer eating and enjoying my food with a bit more privacy, that's all!

We go to Mikado quite often and enjoy the food and service. The background music at the South side location is usually a form of jazz that I find discordant and irritating. Fortunately the food and service compensate.

Not sure what the point of making reservations were, when the restaurant was empty but they made us wait 10 minutes upon arrival while they cleaned a "special" booth. Meanwhile, people who arrived after us were seated immediately. But when we were finally seated we realized why the booth was special as it took 20 minutes for our server to appear for the first time. Disappointing for a place that is normally okay.

The food was fantastic, every dish. They were pretty busy and the table next to us was very noisy but the meal made up for it.

Another fantastic meal at Mikado. We have been going here for years, and have always received excellent service and amazing meals.

We will absolutely be back!
