    Hidden gem, among these few restaurants that you will remember, where food creates emotions and memories. It was incredibly tasty, creative and delicious, the chefs invite you to a unexpected voyage through different courses (the portions were of a good size, not small or big, we had 10+ courses). Having experienced multiple Michelin star restaurants, this one is easily at the same level or even better. The team is very kind and welcoming, we will certainly come back.

    Wonderful and delicious surprise. Perfect execution by the 2 Japanese chefs, cuisine that meets the best of Japanese and French gastronomies. The parnish soup took me back to my childhood in France, so did the lamb who was absolute perfection. Razor clam was beautiful and delicious to the palais. Maquerel was cooked perfectly. And desert was the last surprise to this amazing diner. Bravo to the chefs and their team, we will come back

    Went to Mifune for my 16th wedding anniversary with my wife for the Omakase experience dinner. We had 10 courses and each one was more delicious than the last. The service from the time we walked in the door till we left was impeccable. Just a wonderful experience! Highly recommend and we will definitely go back again!

    We loved the omakase experience at Mifune. The restaurant is our go-to sushi place when we come to NYC, and it did not disappoint. It’s been 2 years since we’ve been able to return to NYC, The ambiance was perfect; the service, impeccable. The upgraded omakase was the chance for us to sample food we would never think to order or try on our own. We enjoyed almost everything that was placed in front of us, except perhaps the egg custard with mushrooms. I’m not going to lie: it’s expensive to eat here but then again, what terrific sushi restaurant is cheap?

    Spare, clean and spacious restaurant with excellent service and nice selection of wine , sake and Japanese Whiskey. Omakase was just OK. We chose the higher-end Omakase. The usual uni, wagyu, and fois gras was good but not that surprising or amazing. The pumpkin soup and lobster courses we felt were the best. Overall, a fine meal.

    The restaurant's team of chefs produce some truly novel and delicious dishes. My wife (who lived in Japan for many years) and I had the premium omikase and were delighted with the chef's selections. The space and ambiance are warm & relaxing and the service is welcoming and very helpful.

    Was it the main chef's night off? We found certain food combinations weird and unappetising. Some duck jelly over a not-so-fresh oyster, or a totally unnecessary ground coffee beans over a fish fillet. Then the duck dish (I think it was duck): thick, fatty, and uncrispy skin, plus the meat that could not be cut with a knife = not palatable. Not to completely take away from the restaurant: The courses arrived with a lightning speed The service - top notch The dinnerware - unique The plating - artistic Overall, this dining experience fell short of my expectations.

    Excellent, delicious food. Very creative yet true to the flavors of the ingredients. Great, impeccable service. Not sure why they don't have the Michelin star yet. Much better than many other French Michelin-starred places that try to embrace Japanese techniques, such as the one in Midtown. Mifune almost feels like a bargain for what you experience here. Do the $40 upgrade, and you won't regret it. Great premium Sake list. Food goes lovely with Sake, but they will pair beautifully with white and red Burgundy wines as well. Can't wait to go back.

    You can stop researching now. You’ve found the restaurant where you should have that next special night out. I took my wife there for her birthday and woke up the next day still thinking about the food. What drew my interest was the Japanese / French fusion motif. Two of our favorite cuisines blended together?? I had to give it a try - and it did NOT disappoint. Over the past ten years my wife and I have taken each other to a different Michelin (or “Michelin-level” if they don’t have a star yet) NYC restaurant for our birthdays. So, we’ve tried about 20 or so over the past decade. During that time, we’ve kept an informal running list of the top 2or 3 that we feel have stood out among a group of already outstanding restaurants. Mifune just made that list. Each course is brilliantly imagined, beautifully presented, surprising, exciting and dynamic in its flavor profile. We did the “upgraded” omakase tasting menu and the additional money spent was well worth it. There was a lobster tail, curry and quinoa dish that was absolutely out of this world, and the grilled eel course is melt-in-your mouth-savory and leaves you wanting to lick the plate clean. The creamed corn and truffle shavings soup is so creamy-sweet decadent, it could work as a dessert. The sake menu is extensive; we are not sake experts but we ordered the 3 sake sampler and asked them to “surprise us” and they brought a wonderful selection of sakes. I had no idea sake could be so smooth, fragrant and complex. The service is top-tier, of course, and the ambience is perfect for a quiet, intimate dining experience that makes it effortless to focus on the food and the company at your table. Chef Yuu Shimano came out to say “hello” to us at the end of the meal and, like his food, he was warm, sophisticated yet unpretentious, quirky and delightful. Bravo, Mifune. We will definitely be returning!
