I was not expecting a lot when I first looked at the menu they had during covid because I didn’t see much sushi or raw japanese dishes. I came for a birthday and we love Japanese food so we were unsure if we would enjoy the food. However, the food turned out delicious. We ordered their sashimi special for the night and uni sampler set which was more than enough to satisfy our sushi cravings. The fois gras and entrees were all amazing, especially the duck confit. It was so tender yet crispy and full of flavor. I have to say i even loved the bread because it was soft and perfectly toasted. I was so close to cancelling my reservation because of the limited menu I saw a few days before our reservation but I’m so glad I didn’t. Highly recommended and will definitely come back in the future.

Great ambiance for outdoor dining. Manager Miyumi was great with all her help. We had a great time except our waitress forgot to mention daily specials which we overheard from another table and thought we would have enjoyed them. Overall great time and different but delicious food. We will be back.

The food at Mifune is excellent. Every dish we ordered was delicious and the cocktails were also extremely well made. It's a little pricey so not exactly an every day kind of place, but you certainly get what you pay for. Also, the service was excellent. Our server Miyumi (forgive the likely misspelling) was an absolute delight.

Dining at MIFUNE was such a special experience. They have a beautiful space for outdoor dining in front of the restaurant. It's nice and quiet, and the tables are spread out. I started with the mixed greens salad, which they served in a special dressing for me. Delicious. I then had the grilled branzino with vegetables. It was beyond exquisite - probably the best branzino that I had in my life. I finished with the mango / chocolate dessert served with caramel ice cream. Sensational. The service was superb and the prices extremely reasonable for such refined cooking. Five stars and then some.

As ALWAYS the staff has exquisite attention to detail. My wife is sensitive to citrus, and in dishes where they used citrus they upgraded her experience with a substitution.

The pairings are always a treat! Meticulous thought goes into how the wine will uplift the incredible UMAMI the chefs deliver.

Again this restaurant and these chefs need some attention from Michelin !

The waiter and chief didn't hear our decision of the food, and the wagyu beef is so salty. I was so sorry to bring my girlfriend to there for our anniversary.

Can't say enough good things about the location, the food, the service, and although it's a little pricey in general, not really when compared to other Japanese restaurants of similar quality and offerings. This is my new favorite 'go-to' in NYC.

It maybe that we should have came for the regular menu instead of the Valentine Menu. We booked for 8:30PM and didn’t get to sit until around 9:00PM. Among the courses, the red snapper tasted a little weird to me and my partner. The wagyu beef was too oily and combined with foie gras, I could not even finish half of them. We sat close to the door, and at the end when other people started leaving, the -8 degree Celsius cold wind of the night blew straight to us. We even started thinking about getting our coats back from the coat check at that point. I still liked some of the courses, but the experience could be better, especially for such a special night.

We celebrated the Valentines at Mifune. The food was just ok and it comes late. I understand the restaurant is super busy but the tables are too closed to each other, which ruined my V-day dinner for sure.
Also, they didn’t arrange the table based on who made the reservation first. Instead, on a who arrived first manner which I cannot understand.
