I enjoyed the food and the service at Mifune greatly. I recommend the miso black cod, it's delicious! We also tried the tuna temaki off of the specials menu and it was fun and different.

We went specifically for the ‘make your own roll’ which is where they bring out a slab of tuna ribs and you scrape the meat off. A very unique experience. Menu was somewhat limited but good and service is fantastic.

food taste is fair but service operation is terrible. despite there are many waiters and waitress, we have to wait over one hour to get French fries. I don't think I'll come back there.

Very pleasant staff and authentic Japanese food. Not packed seating is also a good point of this restaurant compare to other Japanese restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Mifune lives up to the hype! My girlfriend and I went out for my birthday. Henry (our waiter) was excellent; a true hospitalian! I look forward to my next visit. All the staff was great. I love the Seven Samurai cocktail. I hope this restaurant sticks around for a long time.

Food was great and the ambience was good. I gave 4 stars only because it took 20 min between 2nd and 3rd courses of our tasting dinner. We had to keep asking since it seemed they totally forgot about us. And the steak was gamy.

Everything was great except for the speed of the service. Wish the food came out faster. I liked the food, everyone was nice and polite, and it was not too loud, which was pretty rare for a new york restaurant.

The service was very poor and slow. No one came to greet or seat us for quite some time. No one came to take our order, we had to call someone over. The food, presentation and ambiance of the restaurant were good though.

Was there for a business lunch. Food was delicious - I had the miso cod. Loved the lunch set - it was more than enough food. Also can hold a conversation without having to raise my voice. Service was attentive. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

Saw the following “Eater” video (https://youtu.be/vPuhAHJjEIA) and thought it looked amazing. Called up my cousin in NYC, since I was going to be there that weekend for business, and made reservations.

Was everything we were expecting. We ordered the full tasting menu with the wine pairing. All of the courses were delicious and amazing. The service was outstanding, the wines delicious, and served with great aplomb and background by the Somm. The pairing of a deep background in French flavors and techniques with the fresh and delicious Japanese palette makes for the best combination of the two. The surprise of the evening was getting to meet chef Yuu at the end and thank him for such a delicious meal.

Food was good but unlikely to return due to a stupid rule. You are not allowed to order both tasting menus for a party yet they do not require entire party to participate in the tasting menu. Makes no sense.

We went for NYE. They only offered the tasting menu. It was 8 courses. The first course which included a few different bites, along with the filet were the two favorites. The dessert was nothing special. It was some sort of sugar cane mochi with creme around it. We didn’t particularly care for it. We do love Japanese food and seafood, but didn’t feel like mostvof the courses were anything to weite home about. The service was nice, staff was friendly. Decor was nice and it had ambiance. I would have liked to try the the menu to see the difference. Sake drum was fun!
