Wagyu Short Rib

Food was good. Yellowtail sashimi a bit to thick even though I requested thin. The Shato peppers freaked me out because it looked like something was alive squirming around. Couldn’t eat it. Very creepy. Otherwise good.
amazing food and experience. will definitely come back.
The food great and the service was efficient. Will be back when I'm in town.
The food is amazing, service very good and the ambiance its like you were transported to another country. There is outside seating as well
Not cheap but well worth it.
Starr restaurant similar to Morimoto creative Japanese cuisine.
Very consistent quality. Certain choices are not to be missed, such as water mellon ceviche, hot stone Wagu beef, toro and uni sashimi, cauliflower and shishito peppers. Also Chilean seabas is incredible.
The food is always excellent, but the service was mixed. v The waitress was not very accommodating at the beginning, but the support staff was very attentive. It's pricey, so it's not for everyday dining for the average person.
Our waiter Taras, was by far the worst server I have ever had. Came to the table after we sat down and just said "You decide?" Our waters were constantly empty and when we asked for a refill he brought water for ONE person. After we ordered appetizers he took our menus and came back after we had ate them and said "done?" as if eating Brussel sprouts was a meal and we should get up and go. It was my girlfirends brithday and I got up to ask him to bring a dessert with a candle, but when my girlfriend asked him to order dessert, instead of just saying "no problem" he says "oh he already ordered it" giving away what would have been a nice surprise. This is the first review I have ever written but a single person managed to turn my favorite restaurant into place that had lesser service than Applebee's.
The service at this place is horrendous. They have a bunch of lazy people working here. South Florida lazy at its worst
Birthday dinner was amazing! Everything was wonderful and the service was excellent! Worth the drive from Boca! Will be back very soon!!
The service was too slow, we wait like 25 minutes for the dessert , so long that we decide to cancel it ...
Overall the restaurant is worth the experience. I was a disappointed with the sushi. It was average and I was expecting a higher caliber. Service was good and we had a friendly server.
I recommend! You might want to decide what you want to eat prior to the arrival
Always the best service and quality of food! One of my top favorite places! Took my sister here from Boston and she absolutely loves the food!
Got charged twice with the tip, they should tell you something and not hide the first charge when its a expensive restaurant
Excellent service abd excellent food. Good and fast.
Extremely fresh, extremely tasty! Service wonderful as well.
Decent food and good service. However not very special or memorable experience.
We had the best server ever. Staff was attentive and the food was delicious.
We were seating outside, next to the mall’s trash and the smell was terrible.
Food was delicious as always. Still one of my favorite restaurants ❤️
We are regulars at makoto. We know the menu by heart. We brought over friends from California. We always get the spicy tuna rolls and we orders a few which were not spicy at all . We told the waitress and her reply was:sometimes they come out like this, every time it is different , and she just left ! Not professional reply and not acceptable.
Really expected more. The service was really good, the food was ok, but not fresh, the noise and the aspect of restaurant is poor. Lot's of mosquitos inside, really hate it. i don't have plan to come back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city but we had a not so pleasant experience on Saturday. They decided to keep the front door open and we were seated at a table next to it but the AC was not cool enough so it was SUPER hot! Our server which was amazing by the way let us know that we were not the only table with the complaint and she had already told the manager. Well said manager VERY rudely came to our table and yelled at us that he could not close the door because of fire department's orders which we don't understand why since BOTH back doors were closed and this said front door is ALWAYS closed. We asked if they could turn down the temperature on the AC and he just turned around and left.
My complaint is not on the food or service we got but on the rudeness of someone whose job as manager is to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Really good. Very good service, great sushi selection.
Es un lugar, que es garantía en todos los aspectos. Comida, servicio extraordinarios
Food was amazing.
Food as always amazing.
I requested a table away from the entrance, kitchen, waiter stations, and bathrooms when booking almost 2 weeks in advance and still got a table next to the bathrooms and a waiter station so they obviously don’t read customer requests on opentable. Food was outstanding, the service was your standard as if I’m in Brooklyn style sushi restaurant “c’mon order quick so you can leave and I can make money off of the next customer” uninspired “I really don’t care what you get” service. But food was wonderful and I guess that’s all that matters to them so I’ll take it. Will definitely return but will expect less especially given their reputation and location.
Was super hot inside. Not as amazing as it used to be ...
Excellent food and service
Very good! The sushi was great but the king crab salad and Wagyu hot stone amazing!
I was really impressed by the high quality service provided by Oscar !!! Well done Oscar , congratulations.
As usual very good!
Great food and ambiance
outstanding, service was great but the food better; coming back for the Branzino.
Birthday Lunch with family, Nice and comfortable for a small party
Still our go to favorite restaurant in Bay Harbour. Had enjoyable and intimate birthday lunch treat for my sister-in-law whom we hadn't seen in 6 months due to pandemic.
Delicious food as usual. I had the Bento box with salmon which was excellent and my husband had the yaki noodles with beef. It is always a wonderful experience to come to Makoto.
Excellent dishes, very nice atmosphere (outside), great service. Some cocktails were very good, others just ok. I loved the whole cauliflower, wasabi vegetable fried rice, and the Toban Yaki dessert was completely amazing. Very enjoyable, will definitely return soon.
Siempre el mejor sushi de Miami!
