Typical Hibachi Style Steakhouse

Mikato's is your typical hibachi-style steakhouse where you are entertained by the chef's cooking skills as you eat table side. The chef was friendly and entertaining with the usual antics -- the volcano trick, the egg on the knife trick, etc.. They also serve sushi, although on this trip I didn't... read more

Turns out this stranger was telling her that my autistic son could not bring the food we bring for him that he will eat. Autistic kids don't do Japanese.

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we could sense the excellent service. The hostess, waitress, and cook were amazing. The hibachi cook interact with our entire family and connected with your children. He made a birthday dinner for our son memorable. We have found a new place we will visit each summer we come to town. They do... More

Food was average. They over charge you for every thing you order,( even rice). They put a 20 percent tip in the bill even if you have separate checks. Cost $110.38 for three people ! There are better Japanese Restaurants than this and cheaper. Even if you plan on on spending money do not spend it here.

We walked into this restaurant without a wait (7:30pm on a Sunday night). American wait staff was very pleasant. Our chef was Amazing & hysterical! He had us laughing the entire dinner, and included our daughter (7) in all his jokes! Delicious food with average Hibachi prices ($10 kids / $16-$28 adults). Hands down the BEST Hibatchi "show" we've attended!... More

People rave about this place but the food isn't worth the money they charge. I went there with my daughter and we spent 70 dollars including the tip. The food is fine but it's not that fine.

I love Japanese steak houses but this one was not as good.. The cook seemed to be nervous and my stomach had issues later which is very rare. The food tasted good though
