We were disappointed with the menu choices and the room had no ambience or good feeling at all. There were only a few dinners & it felt quite lonely. In fact after looking at the menu we didn't order & left

Good ocean views, seating and service.
I mentioned that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday.
I was disappointed that there was no acknowledgment of his special day.

This was once the place to go for a refined kaiseki. The price fixe menu is now just a bland reminder of the past.

We were pleasantly surprised with our experience at Miyako!
Michael, Host, was very accommodating with our request for a private Cabana which made our evening very special.
Our server Michelle was very informative describing what we were to expect with the prix fixe dinner.
Michelle also suggested the Oka Sake which is now my favorite.
The entire experience at Miyako exceeded our expectations!

I had the special Restaurant Week special menu with sake pairing, which was very nice but not excellent. The sirloin steak entree was a bit rubbery and quite chewy. The sashimi was okay; the tempura was better. The matcha pudding with azuki bean sauce was interesting, but without the sauce would have been quite bland. Service was excellent, and because it was not crowded, the ambiance was excellent. Although I cannot give a rating of 5, it is definitely a high 4.

Our first time there with lots of anticipation.
Food quality & presentation we're excellent.
However, service was poor. Food for both of us didn't come from the kitchen simultaneously. The staff was short handed and seemed disjointed. No one was managing them.
Unfortunately, no return visit for us. There are other options.

The restaurant wasn't busy at all. We were the only customers until one other table came in, but there was an event going on in the conference room. Our complaint is with the server. Polite, but brought our salad out while we were still eating two orders of sashimi. So we moved the sashimi aside and were eating our salads, and then the server brought out the steak. The steak, the most expensive item on the menu, was delivered on a sizzling platter with sautéed onions and corn. We have never seen corn served in a Japanese restaurant. But, we were still eating our salad. He offered to take it back and we agreed. Then when we had finished our salad he brought back the same steak. We were not able to finish the sashimi and were not allowed to take it home due to a restriction written in the menu that says anything uncooked could not be taken home. I don't believe I've ever seen language like this in any restaurant and it is rather ridiculous considering how we were rushed. It's really a shame. We've eaten here for years but I don't think we'll be back.

For one thing, there was no valet parking and my husband had to drive around 45 minutes to find parking. Our reservation was for 6:30 pm but couldn't get in until 7:00 pm because of the parking. Waiter was friendly and service was adequate. My husband ordered the prix fixe menu for $57 which I
understand changes monthly. He felt the portions were very small but tasty. I loved my prix fixe menu for $55 which was the boiled butterfish. It came with a couple pieces of hamachi and sashimi, shrimp tempura & vegetables, pickled bean sprouts, miso soup and rice. Everything was delicious and though it was small portions, it was very filling. Our meals included ice cream too. View is outstanding, but room is very small and not much privacy. They also give a kamaaina discount which is always a plus!

Had a god experience, but encountered a couple flaws. Unbeknown to us, the cabana we assigned was defective. It was big disappointment because we were there to entertain friends. After confronted the manager about the issue, he told us that we should have requested for a specific cabana. Well, most customers would not have know that. Honestly, it was the fine waitress who saved the night because of her top notch service. It will be a long while before I go there again. It’s prime attraction is the cabana. As for their dishes, there are plenty’s places offered more tasty food at lower price.

I selected Miyako to celebrate my son’s birthday. This is a favorite of ours. We have always been seated within the restaurant. Upon our arrival, the host was going to seat us outside. This was not acceptable! He said the other tables were booked earlier. We booked several days prior to June 15th. I told we wanted to dine inside! He finally seated us inside. It was hot! I watched to see who got the other tables. There were two tops seated on a four top-both tourist couples. We are local folks who make it a point to dine at Miyako’s several times a year. This action did not make me happy. Fortunately was our server (she’s most attentive & very pleasant) and John assisted her (pleasant too). The food was delicious and due to the food & service we received, it made for a most pleasant experience despite our initial encounter with the host.

Excellent food and service; our lower rating for noise level was purely due to one guest whose voice was loud and carried, and she talked non stop. It certainly was not the restaurant’s fault.
Overall, a wonderful dinner!

This is quite a traditional Japanese restaurant, much like one might see in Tokyo. Unfortunately, the food didn't come close to anything I've had in Tokyo, probably because restaurants there typically specialize in one branch of Japanese food. Miyako tries to cover many different types of Japanese cuisine and misses the mark on most.

Familt get together on holiday as we seldom get time to chat together. Our second time here after recommendation from a friend and we really enjoyed the food as we couldn’t forget the food after eating here the first time. Will be back again to try other dishes in the menu
