Great teppanaki in St. Augustine

The service and food was very typical of Japanese Steak Houses. The chef was entertaining and the food good. If in St. Augustine and looking for a Japanese Steak House, Mikato is very good. The food was very typical of these I have tried.

My family always visits Mikato for special occasions! The atmosphere is wonderful, the chefs, not only very skillful when they're tossing shrimp in the air, etc., but they put on a wonderful show as well. I get really excited if I find that we're going to Mikato. I've been visiting there for years and have watched it grow and grow... More

One time they refused to seat us because of someone they thought would be joining our party (not eating) for over an hour when the restaurant wasn't busy. Another time the waitress was mad that we were there within an hour of closing (we were out before closing time) so she slammed drinks on the table, rolled her eyes at... More

The Teppanyakii chef was entertaining, although he overcooked the shrimp and steak. Food was pretty typical and the prices in line for this type of restaurant. We had a better than average server who kept up with us very well. We started with sushi, which turned out to be the tastiest part of our meal. Nothing was bad - just... More

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 try their sushi. Hubby and I had the special... More

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.

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.
