MIFUNE New York
MIFUNE New York takes traditional Japanese cooking that places supreme importance on the seasonal
bounty of the land and sea—and reimagines it using French technique to create innovative, artistically
Very nice place, really good japanese food, and staff were really friendly and intuitive to customers needs. Highly recommend.
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.
Excellent food, ambience and service. Will certainly go back again.
Foods are fresh and specially made. Service is also very nice.
Great place, loved the Food. It was like I stepped into a sushi joint in Tokyo! Abe worthy!
Food quality was good but Long waiting for the food at lunch
Excellent food and service. Glad that I found this place close to my office. We had NYC Restaurant Week meal and we all enjoyed it.
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.
Excellent food and location! Service was good too but a little bit not organized, the waiter also seemed in a rush to serve/take plates out and perceived a bit rude but overall the experience was great! Awesome for restaurant week deal.
Love this restaurant! All wooden interior offers an authentic Japanese restaurant. Food was just sophisticated and fresh.
I have been to this Resturant few times. I love the cod fish dish. The price is moderate and people are friendly and provide the great service. Clean and comfortable environment.
Quality food, quality service, cool scene. A little pricey, good for a treat.
Very good value lunch menu of the restaurant week. Quality of sashimi is high and it even comes with dessert and coffee!
The sushi that was served was very fresh and the wagyu beef was amazing. Wagyu was succulent, juicy, incredible depth of flavor, and tender.
Except that my water glass was broken and the water leaked through the table, it was fantastic experience. Nice employees, nice food, nice restaurant.
We went here for my brother’s birthday! The food is not cheap, but it was a great dining experience and I would love to go back. We had sashimi, uni, oysters, and rice ice cream. Everything was lovely and the dishes were creative.
The experience at the Restaraunt was wonderful, but the reservation we made through Open Table never materialized on their reservations list. What happened to our reservation?
Great Japanese restaurant close to grand central. I loved the decor and the superb food even more. Refined Japanese! All 6 dishes we ordered were out standing. We will be back.
The food was good especially the salmon sashimi. The service was a bit slow. I think it is because it is full in RW but not enough waiters. Overall, good value for lunch.
Great food, great service, no waiting time, all around great meal!
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!
It is pretty nice restaurant with very tasty food. Thought the restaurant week menu won’t have good size, actually the dishes come with decent size and we are super full after having all the courses.
I suppose it was because of restaurant week, but the service and the food was not up to par with how they usually are. Quite disappointing considering I bought my mom here for her birthday.
The decor, food,services and everything else areperfect at MIFUNE. This is my go to place to have authentic and elevated Japanese food in midtown.
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.
Food was excellent but timing on courses for the tasting menu was off ruining the evening.They apologized for the delay but did nothing to correct the experience. Food was excellent but for the cost and lack of service I will not be going back
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.
mistake offered cuisine and even haven't get two courses and extremely slow and no service at all. Also the fish r not fresh
Great food, service is slow but I guess it’s because there are so many people. Would recommend.
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
Poor service, mediocre food
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.
I've been to Mifune once when it just opened and found the prices to be a bit steep for what it offered. Visited again during restaurant week and really enjoyed the miso cod for lunch. The atmosphere is minimalistic, clean and warm, with great ambient music. Will definitely return.
I went for the special uni dinner and was really excited because i love uni. but I don't eat wasabi and informed the restaurant, and it was in half my courses. the first time was a bit annoying because i had just said it, but the second and third time really didn't have an excuse. the food was decent but not amazing, and the foie gras rice dish was really disappointing - a plain piece of foie gras over a bowl of white rice. that's it. the flavor wasn't horrible though not exciting, but the presentation was just nonexistent. also we ordered squid tentacles and i specifically confirmed it was the actual tentacles as described - but that's not what we got. It was just kind of oily strips of the body of a squid, and no tentacles at all.
osyters with jelly ponzu ⭐️
miso cod ⭐️⭐️
roll your own blue fin tuna rib ⭐️⭐️⭐️
the more they brought out, the better it got. tuna rib should come out last. pro tip: its 2-sided!!!
Mifune is in a funny place. It supersedes the more-popular Sakagura one block away in overall quality and presentation, although the range of food and sake doesn't compare, and isn't meant to. It's not as good as Aburiya Kinnosuke one block north, but the dining room is more elegant. Unlike those others, it does serve sushi, not typical of an izakaya or kappo ryori, and the sushi was damn good: better quality and selection than many supposed higher-end places these days (not as good, of course, as Sushi Yasuda, also a block away). Sashimi, then, was also very good, and the tempura was lighter and tastier than most, too. Be careful of the counter seating -- usually a good bet at a place such as this, but because of the weird set-up it feels more like a hallway (the door is RIGHT THERE) than a quiet dining experience. The main room with its large kamon is surprisingly airy. A bit on the pricey side, about $100 per person without drinks. Still, very much worth a visit especially when the other places nearby are all booked up.
The food was great along with the service. I ordered a rice dish that took very long, they had a great recovery and sent us some french fries while we waited. Eventually, I tried cancelling the dish because it took so long, they took it off the bill and gave it to me to go. I will definitely go back and highly recommend their happy hour menu, available until 8pm.
