Quite the Show

We always try to arrive at opening so there isn't a wait. Mr. Yummy is the head chef & apparently all to often is the only chef. His routine is tiring & no one at the table enjoyed him squirting water at them from a dirty little doll. The food is ok, we've had better. The wait staff was friendly... read more

Our family was staying in a hotel across the street as we were driving through. It was late (after 9pm) and we needed to eat. We stopped in to Miraku's not realizing what type of steakhouse it was. The place was beautiful with beautiful decks outside with Koi in the ponds. Inside it wasn't busy. We met another family which... More

I was pretty disappointed with my dinner at Mikami Japanese Steakhouse. Initially the decor seemed pretty nice - the water garden as you enter is really nice - but inside, it's definitely showing signs of wear - the flagging has stringy edges, the blinds are worn at the edges and the dining room had a strange musty smell. When I... More

Our UF son took us here for dinner and it was a treat. Their top chef "Mr. Yummy" is fantastic. He is a ton of fun, great style and the food is top-notch. This will become a regular stop from now on.

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

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 treat was that the... 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
