    I love Mizu, but something was so off last night. The bartender was the server for our table. We waited at least forty minutes for our drink order. When it finally arrived, he brought everyone two and three waters to just keep us appeased so he could manage his other duties. Then, it was forever again before an appetizer order. We finished that quickly because we were hungry and expected soup and salad to come, but it never did. About an hour in he said they were out of soup and salad and promised a discount. He brought us more gyoza instead. The chef finally arrived and made great food, but didn’t put on much of a show as we were hungry and it had already been well over an hour. By the time the steak was on my plate, my veggies (served first) were cold. I haven’t experienced Mizu like this before so I hope it was a fluke. And I’m not sure we even got the discount promised or had the drinks that never came taken off our bill. I questioned it, but by the time I finally had a bill I just wanted to pay and leave. Rough night.

    We have been here many times as it is one of my wife's favorite places to eat. We have progressively seen the quality and service dwindle. I get the current state of affairs and prices in this country but their prices have skyrocketed and portions keep decreasing in size. Generally we cannot finish our meals and this time I was thinking where is all the food at. It tasted OK but was really just super average and definitely not worth what they are charging.

    We hadn’t been here for years and were a little worried based on some reviews. It was a great experience though. We barely walked in the door and they called us by name to come to our table. Very efficient service and a fun night out.

    I’ve been to many hibachi/sushi restaurants and this was by far the WORST. They didn’t even have sushi, the wait time to be seated was over 30 min even with a reservation, and the service was terrible. We sat at the table without orders taken for at least 20 min. The food was bland, and was just not very good. Safe to say this will be the last time we go there. Even the couple next to us, who are regulars there, say it has gone downhill FAST! Don’t waste your time at this restaurant people.

    Food was good and the cook was very engaging. But they no sushi bar operating since July of last year!!! So why still have your branding saying you serve sushi? Very disappointed…I asked our cook what happened? And he mentioned that they sushi chef left for a better paying job somewhere else…LAST JULY! Mizu needs to get their act together…and hire a new sushi chef at this covington location.

    The chef did not seem to know what he was doing, my steak was over done, did the vegetables almost as an afterthought. When he finished he just walked away didn’t clean the grill which was not great to look at while we finished.

    We had a 7:00 reservation, we were all seated by 7:10 yet it took a server another 35 minutes to take and serve our drink order. We did not get did not get appetizers until 8:00. Finally at 8:15 our chef showed up to begin cooking our meal. The chef was great, very entertaining, but the slow and lackadaisical service was really disappointing. There were tables that came in after us that were served before us, my drink order was wrong and since our server did not check on us, I finally went to the bar and corrected it myself. There was a mandatory 18% gratuity, which I don't mind paying if we actually receive service, which we did not. We choose this venue to celebrate 4 birthdays, we did have a lot of fun but that was in spite of the horrible service.

    Hibachi style service. No sushi available. Lobby area needed cleaning and updating badly. The food was good, although the fried rice was burnt. The service was excellent. The food was a bit pricey- beware there is a $4 upcharge for fried rice.

    This establishment is really nice inside but, they don't take walk ins. They're constantly turning away potential customers. I've tried on 4 other occasions for dinner and have been turned away due to not having reservations, understandably so considering one of the times was Valentines. Our recent attempt was for a birthday celebration, we made reservations for 6:30. We were the only ones in the restaurant. There were few other diners who had eaten and left, plates were sitting in their spots, piled up and untouched. Nearly 4 tables dirty, left untouched. 2 girls sat at the bar, on their phones and did nothing. While we were there, party of approx 8 walked in then moved outside; only to discover they left few min later. It hit me, they must have been turned away bc they didn't have reservations. It appeared they only had 1 cook who did majority of the work. 2 girls (one who sat us and another who took our orders) sat by the bar and stared at their phones the entire time. Server came to our table twice during our whole time. 2 memorable things about this restaurant and reason for wanting to dine: 1) Their Yum Yum sauce!! This wasn't as yummy as I remembered it last. 2) Fried Rice was basically rice, egg and soy sauce. It was soo salty, I could barely eat it. My 7 yo daughter loved it, so there's that! Their soy garlic sauce was too thick and garlicy, also not what I remembered it last. What happened to their quality of food? For the amount they charge, one would expect some quality dining experience/food. 3 people dining in for a birthday dinner came to $156 that's with NO alcohol. Super expensive for Covington, #sorrynotsorry. Needless to say, I won't be back; that was a waste of time, energy, and money. I should have driven to Melrose (Renton) or Asadero (Kent) for a memorable birthday dinner! Can't imagine this restaurant being in business much longer by turning away customers for lack of reservations. Good luck with that!!

    The server who took our order was fine and timely. The chef didn't read his customers well, and kept insisting that my 18 year old daughter try to catch rice in her mouth (he tried at least 6 times). The meat was cut very unevenly, as were the vegetables. The noodles from the other party's order was mixed in our food. All in all, the food was just ok. The chef service was weird. The cost was very high in comparison to the quality of the meal and service. We would not go back again.

    Food was good, but way over priced! I've eaten at Mizu many times in the past and I would eat there again. I made reservations for 12; however, their idea of seating 12 is to add a table on the side where you basically can't see any of the Hibachi chef entertainment. Mizu failed to mention that. My biggest gripe is more than half of us in the reservation of 12 were looking forward to sushi. NOTHING on their website, Facebook, OpenTable... mentioned they were not serving sushi until you arrive on the day and time of your reservation only to find a sign on the glass door stating "No sushi until further notice." Mizu failed to openly communicate that. I almost feel like it wasn't mention anywhere online so they can keep customers coming. Overall, I still like the food and the restaurant and would eat there again. I just feel like I let down my reservation group. Shame on you Mizu.

    * Service: non-attentive. The waitress was constantly chatting with other staff behind the bar. * Cleanliness: Bad. The salt/pepper shakers, soy sauce bottles, and other condiments that stayed at tables were so filthy and covered with grease you could not even shake the pepper out. * Food: My scallops were far undercooked, portion sizes were random depending how many others were sitting at your table. For example the person 2 people to my right received vegetables with broccoli, by the time the "chef" got to my daughter, her veggies were nothing but onions and zucchini. * The "show" : Uninspiring. To make matters worse, the chef was wearing two masks. No one could hear or understand what he was saying. Overall this was a fairly mediocre experience. Bland food, dirty items (non-sanitary) and poor service. And the price for 2 kids and 1 adult? $180 with tip. Will not be back.
