Great food nice service

We were unsure what to expect with some of the negative reviews. Upon arrival we sat immediately and was served beverages by a very nice waiter. Mr. Yummy was very entertaining. He did a great job. Only comment is that I was not a big fan of the house wine. I enjoyed my sushi too. Special... read more

10 friends and I went to Miraku Saturday, March 28. We arrived at 6:30 and were told it would probably take an hour before the chef was able to cook. We said we would order drinks and sushi and it would be fine. It took over half an hour to take our sushi orders, and we didn't receive it till... More

Waited an hour and just as the chef was about to start cooking another gentleman comes in the restaurant and the chef insists on having him join the table even though he is protesting that his wife is running late and doesn't want to hold everyone up. The chef made everyone wait another half hour for the wife to arrive.... More

Just cook the food and don't bother with the routine. We sat down and the chef came out and did his little routine which was not very good, dropped several utensils and at one point when I looked disgusted he sprayed water at me, funny huh? Not clean at all and GaryMasterson is right, the restroom is nasty. Was probable... More

Not very clean, one trip to the men's room might have you leaving the restaurant. Understaffed only two chiefs with over eight tables filled so wait time was way too long. I would not return here.

Hubby and I stopped here for dinner tonight. Restaurant pretty empty but we were warmly received. Food was slow in coming but they offered complimentary extras including more saki! Would come again if only for the friendly service.

We were staying across the street at the Sleep Inn and didn't want to drive anywhere, so we walked over to Miraku Japanese Steakhouse. As you first approach the restaurant you go over a coy fish pond on a nice wooden bridge. The pond is elaborate, filled with fish of all sizes and is part of a larger deck area... More
