料理の名前から想像する日本料理とはかなり違った印象。オリジナルの日本料理を超えるものになっているとは言い難い。例えば鰤大根。鰤はきちんと血抜きをして生臭みを取ったアラを使うべきところを正肉を使っており、肝心の鰤の出汁や脂が出ておらず、コストを上げるだけでになっている。また、主役は鰤の出汁を吸った大根であるべきところが添え物になっている。豚の角煮は煮た後に焼いており、硬くなってしまってやはり角煮には及ばない。また、雲丹3種の食べ比べも値段の高さから期待させるものの、雲丹はもちろんご飯が硬くてかなり残念。一方、揚げ出し豆腐は普通の揚げ出し豆腐で、ややピリッと辛かったものの美味しかった。全体としてはお高めで、価格に見合った内容が伴っているとはいえない。

金曜の夜に2人で訪問しました。
お店の雰囲気はとてもよく、お客様も幅広い年代の方がいらしていました。NYでは珍しいおしぼりのサービスもとても良かったです。お料理は7品のコースを注文しました。2人でビール3杯と日本酒を注文し、トータル400ドルです。
内容は残念ながら日本人の口には合わないとと思いますし、この料理を外国の方に日本の味として紹介するのも躊躇われる内容でした。お刺身は筋が残っており、お味噌汁はかつお節の香りが立ってしまっています。宮崎牛の鉄板焼きはサシが綺麗に入っているのではなく、ただ脂身が多いばかりです。トリュフやキャビアなど華やかな食材を使っているのですが、肝心の和食が心許ないので、外見だけ整えたチャラついた料理でした。
また、アレルギーを伝えており、確かに外していただいていたのですが、一部の料理に紛れていたようで症状が出ました。私は元々軽度でしたから全く問題ありませんでしたが、重度の方はお気をつけください。
食事中にも関わらずお皿を下げようとするウエイターも含めて、総合的にお値段には全く見合わない内容と言わざる得ません。

Good looking casual Japanese. Excited by menu - so many fun sounding dishes. Overall disappointed by cost/quality ratio. Food was good to very good but no better than Haru or many other Japanese places at half the cost or less. Signature dishes were kinda bland and tasteless (fois Gras sabayon, Uni sampler). Overall was over $300 for two people and should have been $150.

Food was ok (we have found a bone in our sashimi though), but ambiance needs an update. Badly! Stained sofas and very old obento boxes. Prices are in line with what an upscale restaurant charges for lunch, but atmosphere can be described best with Japanese word furukusai. Don’t think I will be back any time soon.

Restaurant week dinner! The group had a little bit of everything, loved the miso cod for myself and my cousin’s flank steak was delicious apparently. However, the desserts were disappointing. A basic chocolate cake or ice cream were your choices and both were significantly small and plain.

The service was great! Attentive staff (various servers checked up on us) and when we finished eating, they didn’t rush us out with the bill. They noticed we were still having a conversation and left us alone to finish up in our own time. Food was excellent (Uni Fest) and we will definitely be back!

Service was just not there. Our waitress was impatient, never brought us utensils! When we asked for Chopsticks, we were brought spoons only! Why?! So we just stared at our food until someone else
Got it for us. She forgot one of our appetizers and brought it out with the entrees. She rarely came to check on us. Our bill was $800+ for 5 people. You would think they would take care of you but nope. She just wasn’t in the mood to work.

I tried Mifune as part of restaurant week. This is a really nice Japanese restaurant and it presented a lovely menu for restaurant week. I had the miso cod on a bed of salad which was delicious and was accompanied buy miso soup. Ended the meal with lite ice cream dessert and tea.
I will return.

Maybe I haven't tried their best dish, but I've been waiting to try this place for a while, but can't hide my disappointment. Sashimi is okay, if there's a signature dish that the chef is proud of I'd love to know so I could check it out again. Otherwise, there are many other options in nyc.

The worst dining experience I’ve ever had. Service was absolutely terrible. Took one hour to get miso soup. Waited so long they brought us “complimentary” white rice after an hour of no food...which they tried to charge us for. The actual food once it got to us was truly disgusting. Terrible. Main courses were not brought. Miserable experience.

DO NOT EAT HERE

Unbelievably bad service. Our entrees were lost by the kitchen, and after speaking to two waiters, we still could not get served.
Finally I had to walk to the kitchen and speak to a manager in order to eat.
The restaurant was not that busy, and while an apology was offered, it didn't make the wait of over 90 minutes between courses any better.
I would not return to Mifune.
