Lots of activity with locals and a cool, modern layout. Pretty good sushi with a fair selection on the menu. We had excellent service from Lois. Good spot to hit after a long day of travel. Nice beer selection, too.

If your appetite is sufficient, and you have a friend or colleague present ask for the boat - more sushi and sashimi than you eat for just over $30 each. Fortunately my Russian colleague was up for it. OUr other colleagues from Thailand, Italy and Iowa all enjoyed theirs, too. On the Thursday night Mikimoto's was about 2/3 full. Our... More

Excellent lunch. I set off to go to the Washington Street Alehouse, but it was packed. So I thought I would give the sushi place next door a try, and glad I did. Great portion sizes, after Mizo soup to start this is me half way through the sushi rolls. Really tasty, great service. would definitely recommend

I am sure all of us regulars on here go through the same process. I read the most recent reviews and then I read the worst ones to get both an idea on what was wrong as well as be amused by the rants of others. There were some interesting ones for Mikimotos. A common theme in other reviews seemed... More

The food was great but the service was only so so. I went there by myself and they didn't want to seat me at a table because I was a party of one. I convinced the lady to seat me at a table, she did, right behind the hostess stand. Talk about cramped. Because I was by myself, I kept... More

First, we sat down, and waited... and waited... and waited... neither the hostess who sat us nor anyone else appeared to notice that no one came around to offer drinks or even to simply say, "I'll be right with you." We, finally, had to ask the sushi chef if it was a buffet restaurant or is someone coming to check... More

I've been a long-time fan of Mikimotos but lately have not been satisfied with the food. It's either no flavor or just missing a key ingredient - LOVE. This place is not the cheapest option out here so when I come, its a treat and I need it to be good! The sushi is typically on point, but lately the... More

The food here is great. The service, not so much. We waited 15 minutes before someone even came to the table to ask us for something to drink. It does seem to be getting a tad better, but still very slow. If you do go, try the California roll, its fantastic!

I typically get the Spicy Tuna Roll and the Hairy Mexican, which are both addicting! We enjoy going here for a special treat since its a bit on the higher end. Nice atmosphere and good service always.

I enjoyed a great meal here with a business colleague. Fancy drinks, tasty appetizers and excellent rolls. Check! Check! Check! On top of all of this, the server was friendly and timely. It's not a super cheap date, but it is worth it to get top quality product delivered with a smile.
