Izakaya literally means "stay sake shop." They were traditionally down-to-earth places where men drank sake and beer after work--essentially a Japanese-style tavern. As in Japan, we offer a comfortable style of dining centered around sharable plates and a variety of drinks, including sake, shochu, beer and cocktails. Our food changes seasonally, adhering to fundamentals of Japanese food while offering a unique take on traditional dishes. Enjoy yourself, relax, and linger with good friends, good food and good drinks.

Never disappointed in the food, service or atmosphere. The dumplings are to die for, but EVERYTHING is truly amazing! *Make reservation*

Love the restaurant. Unfortunately, there was a loud patron near us. Very annoying.

Usually a really solid sushi spot (probably visited ~10 times), this time service and food was a little off (server rushing dishes to our table and us through the meal, cocktails taking forever).

I took my boyfriend to the restaurant for his 30th birthday. It’s in a cool area of Atlanta and the food is so good. I recommend the dragon roll for sushi and the teriyaki beef for the tasting plates!

Been here on an evening, the place is really small so you can really hear the next 2 tables.
I had booked for 2 via open table and reached ahead of my other guest so as per their policy was not offered a table until all guests arrive but was offered seat at the bar.

Service was good and there were no complaints on the food. Since its known for sushi, we ordered 5 different plates of sushi(had a lot to-go food left) and some edamame.

We had a sake bottle for drinks which i feel was a bit expensive, sushi portions were good and i especially liked the 1 wrapped in cucumber.
Overall will visit the place again for good sushi

If you can put up with the bad, slow service... it's totally worth it. Food and ambience are a great value for the price.

The first time I was here, the service was fantastic. And while the service wasn’t rude on the second visit, every time we ordered anything we were told it would take a long time because the bar or or sushi bar or kitchen were backed up. Imagine going to a restaurant and being told anything you want isn’t currently available. So you make a new choice and that isn’t available either. Endlessly. Except it’s not that busy, and all their product is in stock. Pretty frustrating.

We had a really weird trip to Miso tonight. This is one of our favorite restaurants but it's totally gone downhill from a service perspective. We had a reservation and arrived on time. We stood at the podium for about 5 minutes before someone helped us. Then they asked if we thought we could hurry through our meal because they had a reservation coming in an hour after us. This was confusing because the spacing of the reservations was their fault but they were then asking us to rush. We sat down and waited 15 minutes for water. I had to go tell the hostess that we still hadn't been helped. Finally they came and asked for our drink orders. I ordered a soda and they said I couldn't have one because their ice machine was broken. We switched gears to food. My boyfriend asked for the ramen without the spicy paste but the waiter said the ramen comes "from the company" premade and they can't customize. My boyfriend had to change his order. I ordered sushi. His noodles came to the table first. When I told him I was still waiting for my sushi he said, "oh yeah the sushi is really backed up. It's going to be about 20 minutes." I didn't want to make my date wait so he went ahead and ate and I sat there and waited half an hour for sushi. The sushi finally came and was delicious as always but it was so odd. My boyfriend had to just sit there and watch me eat it after he had finished his dinner 15 minutes ago. We've now had 2 really bad service occasions here. Not sure if we'll be back. It's super unfortunate because this used to be one of our favorite spots in Atlanta.

Great food! We had the gyoza, eggplant, katsu bun, okonomyaki, dan dan noodles, and tuna avocado roll. All of it was amazing. The service was great and quick. No complaints. We'll return to try other menu items.

My fiancé and I had been craving sushi for a while, but I wanted to find someplace that had that but also creative Japanese food that I hadn't tried before. Miso Izakaya fit the bill! The tapas style was great for date night sharing and the drinks were on point, and unique as well. We got the shoyo tamago and gyoza to start, and both were delicious. The crispy duck bun we also got was a bit disappointing, but our variety of ordered sushi rolls, sashimi, nigiri, and a hand roll were all delicious and very fresh. We will definitely be back!

Recently went to Miso Izakaya, and the food was delicious! My friend and I ordered sushi (I got the Rock 'n Roll eel rolls and the Veggie rolls - both were very tasty!), and our other friend ordered a noodle bowl that smelled so good that I think I might have to go back and try it. Would definitely come back!

The restaurant had a great feel and decorations when we walked in so our expectations were high. The waitress forgot to enter one of our main dishes so it came out very late. The food was salty and some of the fish in our nigiri did not taste fresh, specifically the scallops.

My husband and I keep going back to Miso Izakaya for the eggplant and the kabocha squash tempura, but everything on the menu is great. The wine list is not extensive, but it is a good selection and very reasonable by the glass and by the bottle. Always a go-to place for us when we have had a long work day and want to get a glass of wine and great sushi.

The sushi at Miso Izakaya is exceptional, although for this occasion I decided to try items off the hot/ small plate menu. The teriyaki beef and chicken wings were very flavorful but tough/ chewy. The tuna tataki was well prepared and delicious. The masago appetizer was good as well.

Miso is the best restaurant I have been too since moving into the city. We have been 3 times already in the past 2 months. Everything I have tried has been DIVINE. I highly recommend the dumplings, wings and short ribs. Service is excellent and reservations are available.

Great place all around...except for the music choice. Big detriment to the otherwise great atmosphere. Didn't fit at all. It was like 80s hits in a low-lit, hip, urban sushi place.

We tried four different dishes and they all was absolutely terrible. They even sold us and poured coke products from a can and charged us $2 per can. Most importantly, the food was pricey and absolutely terrible.

Miso Izakaya has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta. It is a cozy little Izakaya with a manageable menu so you can try everything. My daughter claims their sushi is the best in Atlanta hands-down. They have a great cocktail program as well. We have never had a meal that we didn’t absolutely love here
