Makoto - Bal Harbour
great experience as usual food was excellent especially the octopus
Food was amazing Moma from Bangkok was our server, she was so nice and loved her enthusiasm when explaining the food. Staff was very friendly and managers were stopping by to see how our experience was. Love Star restaurants and this one is at the top of my list.
Unusual and fun menu. Amazing service. The assortment of sashimi is a must.
Amazing sushi in the most beautiful mall. Everything we ordered exceeded expectations. we were visiting from out of town and this was a highly recommended stop on our trip. Would recommend
Bugs everywhere and food was not as good as it used to be
Everything is amazing. Best sushi in town. Love the people watching.
Come here pretty often and always request to eat outside yesterday we showed up with a reservation at 9:45 and in the notes I asked to sit outside. When I got to the restaurant the hostess said I would have to wait over 30min to sit outside which I found rude. On top of the my waiter was involved in 20 other tables gave us no service. Seems like things are changing at makoto
Outstanding food and service
Makoto is the best Japanese resto I have ever been to!
extremely dirty, but the food is good
Makoto is always a safe bet, food is very good, portions are large so you don’t need to order a lot, service is what you expect of service in America, slightly over the top, but better that than the opposite, you are eating slightly in a parking lot if you are eating outside (inside is not very to eat in my opinion) but they have decorated quite well with plants that you barely notice it. It is always quite full with a pleasant atmosphere. It is a very good choice if you are feeling like a japanese with a pleasant atmosphere but nothing too trendy, crazy or loud and good food.
One of my favorites in S Fl and always have lunch here. Great all Round creative Japanese food and sushi. High quality ingredients! Expensive though worth it! A must!
Water was great and super savvy and a foodie as well
The green tea ice cream fantastic ..
Great food. I mean phenomenal. The service was mediocre; it seemed like the server couldn’t juggle two things at once
Great food and great service! The Kani salad, tuna pizza and the dessert "Toban Yaki" were my favorites!
Estuvo todo muy rico
Recomiendo el tuna crispi rice excelente
Consistently always on point!
We love Makoto
Waitress was great. Food was great. Mix up was that we got things we didn’t order and didn’t get things that we did order. Promptly taken care of by staff.
Makoto is a very fair option when looking for top Japan’s restaurants in Miami Beach. The service is very personal and you can feel their commitment to do a good job. Fresh fishes and the tuna pizza is unique.
I made a reservation for a party of two. The only reservation available was 11pm, therefore it was the one I chose. When we arrived we noticed that the attention was clearly not the service one expects for this kind of restaurant. The forced us to order all at once because the kitchen was about to close. I want to know why do they give the option of booking at table at 11pm if there will be no cooking done after 11pm. While I was still chewing my sushi roll the dessert was served to me, and then again, why do you offer tables at 11pm if you are going to be closing the restaurant with us still there
We love Makoto
Always great food. Kani salad and Miso Sea Bass are favourites as well as the lamb chops. Sit outside if you can.
Wonderful food and service! Will return for sure!
Best veg fried rice I have eaten in a long, long time.
Sushi was great. Drink selection solid. Server was engaged and helpful.
Tiger Prawns just a little slighly overcooked, but tasted great.
I think they were a bit busy . Waited a long time for a high chair. Table was way too small for the plates. Food quality wasn’t as great as last time.
Excellent Japanese in a Bal Harbour setting. Make a reservation as it gets busy. Sitting courtyard style or out front provide many sights to enjoy
Loved the food, the service and the ambience. Ant wait to comeback !
Food is always delicious. We always love spicy tuna on crispy rice. Crab salad was delicious. Had a couple of maki rolls: caterpillar and spicy yellow tail... both very good. Crispy chicken dumplings we also very good.
For hot food we had Wagu hot stone and short rib Yaki noodles. Both great. We will return and recommend.
Always great food, great service, and great atmosphere.
Amazing, the Waygu Stone is amazing
Makoto was absolutely amazing! One of my favorite restaurants in Bal Harbour! Everything was flavorful and perfect!
My wife and I visited Makoto on Sunday during a shopping spree at Bal Harbour. We enjoyed our lunch very much. The sushi and robata dishes were excellent and the service was on par with the quality of the food. We are already looking forward to returning to Makoto soon.
Makoto is always amazing. Everything is great can’t
Teenage girl’s birthday celebration
Gucci is always THE BEST!
The food is always going UP & UP
That’s why Makoto is everyone’s favorite restaurant close to Sunny Isles.
Consistently wonderful; excellent food and service.
