In case you haven’t heard, Makoto has moved to an awesome new space on the 3rd floor. Re-envisioned by Paris-based designer India Mahdavi, it’s a bold new look which will take your dining experience to a whole new level. Bright colors and cozy banquettes. More outdoor dining. More seats at the sushi counter. And of course, the food and drink will be as fabulous as ever.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Makoto Okuwa ushers Japanese cuisine into the 21st century at his eponymous eatery, located on the 3rd floor of the luxurious Bal Harbour Shops. One of Miami’s most accomplished chefs, Okuwa, a master of Edomae-style sushi, reshapes tradition for a savvy audience eager for something new. Those looking for the perfect spot for a romantic date, a lunch with friends or to celebrate a special occasion, will delight in this remarkable cuisine immersed in a stunning setting created by internationally renowned designer, India Mahdavi.

    They turned off off the outside fans half way thru a 1000 dollar dinner. I asked the waiter if we could sit inside to finish (Monday night off season 7pm) came back and told me tough. I have never had great service but tonight put me over the top. They charged me for a 300 dollar steak that I was never brought to the table. I will be charging back this meal and not returning. The managers who refused to come to the table I had to go find them which was pointless. I am a local and frequent ball Harbor for Lee zoo brunch.  I would pass on Makoto. There’s so many other places that are better service in this place has been always horrible!Horrible Choice for my son’s 13th bday…..

    Although food was very good, was extremely disappointed with service. First of all, restaurant allows dogs to join patrons. We had two dogs in restaurant that were constantly barking at each other. Very annoying. Secondly, service was extremely disappointing. They served our meals 20 minutes apart. I wasn’t even able to enjoy the meal with my wife. May think twice next time….

    Too noisy - you could not have a conversation without shouting. Server had so many tables at the time and forgot one of our orders, we got better service from the woman cleaning the table and assisting the server than the server hinself.

    Enjoyed everything! The food was well seasoned, strong and complex flavor profiles, satisfying but not overindulgent. The service was wonderful. We came with a 10 month old and the staff accommodated our needs including providing a high chair and preparing chicken and rice suitable for her pallet and allergy needs.
