Mye Japanese Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was amazingly fresh, the perfect size of rolls and the service was very restrained and effortless as I would expect a Japanese restaurant would be. We sat at the bar and enjoyed each other's company as well as observe the chefs prepare the plates. My average rating for ambience was because of the obnoxious clients who sat next to us and was the antithesis of what should have been and they seemed to know the owner and the staff who danced around them; they were just so condescending and very personal that it was a turn off. I only mention it because this is where the restaurant disappointed me in not putting up a professional line.
We choose Mye for our celebrations. We are seniors and therefore like to go out at lunch time instead of dinner time to celebrate. Mye is a quiet, good food place.
We always feel as though we have had a special time and meal after we go.
The sushi is always fresh and is the best!
The day we visited was my wife's birthday and she was very surprised to see her dessert came with a "Happy Birthday" written on her plate. The seven course dinner was well balanced in flavour, mix of choices and presentation. The one most striking thing I noticed was the flavour of sushi rice. It was exceptionally good.
We were regulars dining there twice a month over the last couple of years. The last few months we noticed a drastic drop in the service. But what was most annoying happened New Year's Eve. We asked whether the special Blue Fin Tuna that was available on Dec 23 was still available. The waitress said it was. We ordered 2 orders as we did on Dec 23 but what was served did not have the same colour and shape. We said this was not the same but the waitress insisted it was. It did not have the same taste or texture. But the biggest surprise came with the bill. $56 for this tuna!!!! Usually our entire food bill is less than $80 including on Dec 23. We will now be looking for a new Japanese restaurant to dine at.
Four of us went there for NYE dinner at 6:30pm. We have to wait about 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. We were finally seated but were given only one menu. We were told that they ran out of it! Again there was no friendly greeting or briefing on the night's special. Someone dropped by to take our drink order and that was it. After another 15 - 20 minutes, we were asked if we were ready to order. We weren't because we wanted to find out more about the NYE special menu, which was listed separately on a piece of paper. The waitress stared at us as if she didn't understand why we needed to know. So we decided to order from their very limited menu which meant another 20 minutes wait before another waitress came by. The wait for the food was very long. They were good, slightly above average but not memorable. The place was dark, uninviting and stiff.
We tried this restaurant for about 8 - 9 times over all these years. Every time we were unimpressed but always went back because of the good reviews. We felt maybe we had some off nights or something. This visit convinced me that this is as good as it gets. So, no more visit in the future. Our NYE dinner was no fun and we will never visit this place again. We went in with good mood and left with bad mood, tired and unsatisfied.
We all love Japanese food and my husband had actually lived in Japan for 2 months on business visit. We dined out quite a lot so our expectation was not unrealistic, just basic courtesy and respect.
The sushi is ALWAYS fabulous. ALWAYS. However. When I pay premium prices for sushi, when I have a limited wine selection (wines that are overpriced...Whitehaven Sauvignon blanc readily available for $18.95 at LCBO but $52 at Mye...One should never pay triple the price except
on consignment wines) and being seated in the highest traffic zone and by the sushi prep area, even though there were more quaint areas available, there's absolutely no reason why this restaurant should remain the 'gem' sushi place of Oakville. There are way too many other BETTER choices now.
We choose Mye to celebrate special occasions, because, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and service is great. It lends itself to being the proper spot for any occasion.
They are quite willing to offer "training chopsticks" to those who have not mastered the art of eating with chopsticks. (Also you can have regular cutlery. The Sushi is always fresh...it is the BEST!
But last night we tried it and it was very nice. We had the sushi and sashimi dinners and both were first rate. Service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Just right. The ambience is a bit sterile (I thought the place would be darker, somehow), but still nice. Overall, it's a great spot that I can't believe I've overlooked it all these years.
This gem of a Japanese restaurant is hiding in plain sight on Church Street in Oakville.
I had the Chef's selection sashimi as an appetizer, followed by the Seafood Tempura Dinner. Everything was delicious and served exactly right, in terms of presentation, temperature, etc. And yes, I have been in Japan many times -- all the way from Noboribetsu on Hokkido to Beppu in the south, and I have eaten in more Japanese restaurants than you could count. I can assure you that you won't find any better Japanese food and service, this side of Japan, than the MYE in Oakville.
We love going to Mye Japanese restaurant, we enjoy the food and the ambience. We highly recommend the restaurant, the sashimi is always fresh and well prepared. The wait staff are always friendly and happy to serve.
However, this was not the case on our last visit. The service was beyond slow and the waiter missed two of the dishes ordered and we were charged for it. He was surprised when we told him we did not received the dish which we charged for!! Not quite the service we are used to visiting Mye.
We will still go back despite this experience.
the staff is always so warm and receptive. I love when Katherine serves at my table. she is knowledgeable, informed, engaging and warm. I've witnessed her serving other tables, even first time costumers, she is a boon to Mye, in my opinion.
the fresh options for off the menu fish rock!
thanks, Mo for another fabulous dining experience. I've only been coming here for 25 years, but every time seems, almost, like the first time. EXCELLENT!!!!!!
