But Many problem with the Credit Card, I had to go to an ATM… You should had a contactless credit card payment method, not only swipe method
One of our favorite restaurants when visiting Fl.
Great experience everything was great but the noice
They blame covid for charging the same and giving you less because of "prep" now...
Chicken dumplings off menu cause "prep" time and covid
Rock shrimp they got rid of half the portion of the wasabi flavor but charge the same because "covid" and prep
Half size of Kobe fried rice cause "prep"
California roll which is the only ive ordered in my life cause the real crab now has half real half fake
Money grab BS
Been going here for 10 years and its not the same
The food was really fantastic. We have been to many sushi places and this one is above and beyond them all.
Great food, great service !
Excellent food and outstanding service. The space is a little dated. The place let us book a table at 10:30 pm and around 11 they started to clean. We were not awake to leave but most of the time we had a pair of eyes on us and someone would come in and try to take something aways.
Oh Makoto, I've missed you! We've gotten spoiled with same day reservation restaurants, and as such, haven't been to Makoto in months (sadly, might even been years), but it was time for the return to one of my favourite restaurants in Miami! The atmosphere is always buzzing inside and out, could never go wrong with their Lychee Martinis, and their dishes are always delectable. The star on the night was my Whole Roasted Branzino .. two words, "Wasabi chimichurri". The surprise factor was the dessert. We always get Yuzu Chocolate Cake (it's bess), but decided to try the Okinawan Tres Leches. The cake itself was soaked in japanese whisky and yummy, but the soy ice cream... love it or hate it.. was most unique! Never thought anyone would decide to make ice cream with soy sauce, but Makoto did it!! It added the perfect balance of salt to sweet ratio to the dish, but sadly, it wasn't our bag. Our hostesses was nice enough to switch the soy ice cream out for some mango sorbet. Thanks for a great date night Makoto!
Ps. Add me to your special reservations guest list 🙂
Need better music and service is very slow
Great service and delicious food. My family was visiting this restaurant for a long time and consistency in quality of food and service is really impressive. This is one of my favorite places. Highly recommended.
Do not go now. Wait the new location at third floor. Now is a messy work in progress
Our experience was not terrible but not great either. Our server put zero effort to make us feel welcome. We ordered drinks and he spilled some of my husband’s on the table. Never bothered to apologize or even clean. I had to clean the table myself. T wouldn’t have been a big deal if his attitude would have been better but he definitely seemed he was not in a good mood. They have a station outside where food comes and where they take dirty dishes. Between waiting tables he was shoving food in his mouth, not disinfecting his hands after, grabbing plates to serve customers. Very unprofessional. He should have a proper lunch break. The food was ok but not great. The wagyu beef hot stone was a joke. That was not wagyu beef. The spicy tuna crispy rice was very good. The uni sashimi and toro maki were very fresh. The rainbow maki was nothing to write home about. Very bland and boring. When we wanted to order desert we were told they don’t have our first choice. We tried the chocolate cake and it was good. They did not meet the expectations as far as hospitality.
The food at makoto is good however, the service was horrendous. Our waiter was disrespectful, snarky, and pressured us to order alcoholic beverages after we clearly said we will not be drinking because we will be driving. I would not return simply because of the service.
Love eating here. Great flavors, great service, great people watching. love Bal harbor atmosphere.
Muy caros los vinos
The best quality of japonais food in town ! ! 💙
Magnifiques saveurs, déjeuner toujours étonnant
Un peu trop bruyant
Restaurant allowed a dog to sit next to me from another party.
Always the best
The best of Miami 🤩
Delicious we loved it
Cooked food was good. Sushi was average at best. Very busy restaurant during the Holidays. Not sure I'll be back.
We could me every other week it’s an awesome way to try new dishes too
Hate their attitude like it’s a favour letting you in!
Amazing - food was awesome as always service wonderful and just one of my favorite restaurants of all time.
Went for late lunch at 2;45 pm.
Appetizer and one sushi roll came out quickly but main course fish and rice were not coming out. I finally flagged down our server and asked why the delay of about 40 minutes and he went to check. Then all came out fast. It’s like if it had been ready for a long time but the server had not checked. It was all delicious but a disappoint with the service
Whats nice about Makoto is that they have a menu with heavier asian fare if thats your flavor and much lighter fare if you want to be able to walk after the meal! The food was delicious and top quality as well as unique. Definitely an experience worth trying.
We live Makoto, especially sitting in the outside atrium area. Service and food always spot on!
Amazing food!! Top Top in Substance and Flavor!!
I loved it!!
The best spot in the area by a long shot
The cooked items here are delicious...we enjoyed our meal yesterday, but we wish this joint was a little more soothing--feels like a giant machine serving grub and moving folks along. In any case, we thank you and wish you all continued success...salud!
It’s always the best meal!
The place is not pretty, food is good, service regular
Eric was great. Made our anniversary date a breeze and pleasant experience. Great service.
