Food was good but pricey. However it’s comparable to other restaurants in this area.

The hostess disappeared for 15 - 20 mins. We had 7:30 reservations and were not seated until 8 even though there were plenty of open tables. It took well over an hour to receive our food - they were 'very busy', no they weren't. We finished our drinks long before any of our food arrived. When i asked for a refillon my diet coke i was told they didn't do free refills. I would have thought that since they kept apologizing for how long things were taking even though we didn't ask or complsin, they could have given me a free refill. The food was delicious though, but the length of time to receive it and the lack of a top up on my drink means we won't be back.

Mitsuyoshi has been around for many years in same location. Over the years, menu price went up, but they continue to prepare and serve authentic Japanese food most of us can afford. I have been a regular there for many years and just wish I live closer than I do now. Will dine at Mitsuyoshi whenever I have a chance.

I have dined here over the years, and recently visited with a friend. I was pleasantly surprised that the same staff was still there ~ and as cordial and attentive as I remembered! The food quality and selection is very good, with mostly all selections being authentic in their preparations and offerings. (As opposed to somewhere such as Benihana); which I also enjoy on occasion- but personally find Mitsuyoshi to be a wonderful change of pace. I would definitely recommend Mitsuyoshi - and I’m sure they’ll will make you feel welcome!

We live in Northern California but whenever we are in town, we look forward to eating at Mitsuyoshi. My favorites are the house made tsukimono, tempora beef combo, and my daughter loves the cute kids meal.

This was authentic japanese cuisine. The traditional first-class service and delicious, high quality menu offerings made for an awesome dinner experience for our family. The udon, teishoku meal, and fresh water eel on rice dinner were all fantastically delicious. We will return to this place again soon. Highly recommended!

Fabulously surprised at the authenticity of this restaurant. I’m Japanese and felt like my relatives from Osaka we’re serving me from their kitchen. The hakusaizuke (pickled cabbage) is homemade and was the first indication that this was a special restaurant. The Saba Shioyaki and Hamachi Kama were cooked and seasoned to perfection. The vegetable croquette had the perfect crunch and the sukiyaki was elegantly flavored - not too sweet, with tender slices of marinated beef. We had a party of 6 and visited on a Sunday, which seemed unusually quiet, but we will definitely be coming back.

I was very impressed by the meal we shared at Mitsuyoshi, the miso seabass was absolutely delicious and the tuna sashimi was fresh and tasty. I was sorry to see that there were so few people, but the service and the food especially were outstanding!

We drive from South Orange County just to have great, classic Japanese food. Really enjoy the chawan mushi, which is rarely seen on menus these days. The shrimp tempura has a light, crispy batter. Yum! Service is excellent.

Understaffed resulting in poor service (order errors) and delays - so bad that patron started to walk out due to unreasonable delays. It doesn't help that the food is mediocre and is overpriced for what you are served.

Fantastic service, from the warm and welcoming greeting and throughout the meal we felt like family. In Southern California there is fierce completion for customers and even more challenging are gaining repeat ones. They have my business and I will return soon. Thank you.

Service was terrible. We had a reservation on a Sunday at 6 pm. We ordered and didn't get our dinner until an hour later. The people next to us came after us and finished before we got our food! My dinner was delicious, but the fish was cold. My friend said this was not the first time she had to wait a long time.
The waitress didn't come back to check on us. We had to track her down.

I really enjoyed our experience at this authentic Japanese restaurant. It is a large, cozy place and the food is excellent, and authentic as well, served with chopsticks, and the menu is varied. We wanted a chicken appetizer, but they were out of it. We did have the skewered beef/onion appetizer which was excellent. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was also very nice. I ordered the Tempura with vegetables and it was fantastic, huge amount of food too, as I ordered the "set" which includes many other food items too. My daughter ordered the beef plate, can't remember the name, and it was a great portion, also with adjacent items with it, which includes miso soup. We made a 5:30 pm reservation and were seated promptly but the service was slow and we assumed it because of the number of people there, as well it being Christmas. We definitely enjoyed the experience, the serving staff was very friendly, the food excellent.

Good authentic Japanese cuisine. Had reservations for Christmas dinner and were seated promptly but they were short staffed. It took awhile for the food but even longer just to get the check to leave! Staff were running around and I saw customers getting up and serving water to themselves. It’s a nice little restaurant, the dinner was long but I’d return.

The menu has a very good variety of Japanese food from sashimi to combination dishes. I thought the sashimi was very fresh and the rice cooked just right. Very good service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a moderately priced menu with almost everything you would want at a Japanese restaurant.

日本人なので、入店したときに「いらっしゃいませ」の一言に感動し、ホッとしました。
日本の定番食も食べられるし、カリフォルニア風にアレンジされた創作和食も味わえました。味は文句なし!おいしいおいしいと子どもたちも食べていました。量はさすがアメリカ。日本の1.5〜2倍はありました。シェアし合うのもまた楽しかったです。
店員さんは丁寧、親切でストレスを感じませんでした。
お客さんは日系の方だけでなく、現地の人も結構な割合でいました。シニア夫婦もいれば、生後数ヶ月の赤ちゃんを連れた家族連れも。
日本食を食べるなら絶対オススメのお店です!

Came here after spending the day at California Adventure. Had great reviews on open tablw and was able to reserve. About 18min drive from the parks. The food was good but pricey. Oysters at $3.50 per and quite small. Bento Box dinner was great and had a bit of everything. Kids shared chicken terryaki and it was quite dry and not enough sauce. Overall it was okay just not great value for a family.

We've been enjoying the food and hospitality at Mitsuyoshi for over twenty years. The food never disappoints and it has been a favorite of our family for as long as we can remember. We visit Mitsuyoshi about once a month and the people there have always been so friendly and kind to us. Combined with great food, it's no surprise that we keep returning! As I am Japanese I feel somewhat qualified to say that the food is authentic and the diverse menu is why we never feel like we're in a rut. In addition to sushi and sukiyaki, you can get teriyaki and tempura, tonkatsu, or grilled saba. And much more. And whatever we try, it has always been delicious.

The portion was way small compared to the price. Grilled salmon was literally smaller than my 10 yr old kid’s hand. Too expensive for small portion of food. Disappointed

Great, authentic food. Service was great to make up for slow food service. Receiving orders was a little slow but it’s clearly a family run joint that was just busy on a Saturday night.
