We went to the flagship restaurant on Fore Street. Very sophisticated, perfectly done. We each had the chef's tasting menu with some similar and some different dishes. We both had the seafood over sushi rice. My husband's was slightly different so it could be gluten free.(They were very accommodating. (Thank goodness tamari has no wheat!) He had the black cod...

Your best choice for sushi in Maine. Maine has great seafood and Portland is a great foodie town, so this is not damning with faint praise. The chef's selection of Nigiri or Sashimi are quite good, but the best option is the Omakase chef's tasting menu. Sit at the bar and watch the action, or take a table in the... More

We were happily surprised to find an exceptional Japanese-themed experience in Portland at Miyake. The flagship of the chef's local venues is in the old harbor area on Fore Street, an easy walk from most large hotels. Reservations are a must at this popular restaurant, and we were able to get a late seating on a Saturday night. We both... More

My husband and I went here at the recommendation of a local gentleman we met at lunch. We walked in after a day on the boat and we were pleasantly surprised The food was pricey but well worth it. Ver interesting presentation.

Late in the day for lunch and on our way back to our hotel - tired and hungry. Fantastic food - great noodle soup, huge sushi roll, yummy salad. Enormous portions for a lunch special and beyond delicious.

I have held back going here in all my trips to Portland despite the rave reviews. This is strictly because there are too many other seafood or more traditional New England fare to be had. I can have great sushi in NYC anytime. This time we went and I have to say we were extremely underwhelmed with the food. Our... More

Today I made my first visit to Miyake, picking lunch since I was driving through Portland at mid day. I was seated at the bar and found Masa Miyake busy carving up an entire tuna into pieces to use in the restaurant. The tail was already off and siting in a plastic tub while he reduced the fish to five... More

Ok, I will start this by saying that I was expecting a great experience. The setting is charming and the service was generally what you would expect from a place with this reputation. We tried to order something that was not on the menu and we were met with surprising resistance. It wasn't anything special, we wanted a simple scallop... More

As a Japanese food addict; this place exceeded all my expectations. The menu is diverse and varied and the service was very good. Our meal started with lobster miso which I have never seen prior to this visit and it was superb. My wife opted for the Teriyaki salmon that was also superbly done - pink, warm and firm on... More

After reading several reviews, we decided to go to Miyake for lunch. After looking at the menu, we had a few questions. A waitress named Kristin came over to our table to take our order. Her attitude towards our questions was appalling. She rolled her eyes, made sarcastic comments and had a general pathetic attitude. I was more than a... More
