I've been to Miyake twice now. I really enjoy the atmosphere and it is a unique dining experience. You will almost certainly taste new flavors, but potentially not ones that you want to write home about. We chose the 4 plates for $50 dollars. The plates are small, which we enjoy having a little bit of everything. The first time... More

This restaurant was recommended, then we saw Miyake was nominated for best chef. We arrived and were seated right away. The service is friendly but not very professional. We were hoping to enjoy the food there as much as we do at Iyasare in Berkeley. When the first dish arrived I was hopeful, when I tasted it I asked myself... More

With exquisite attention to detail in the selection of ingredients, preparation of dishes and in the selection and training of his knowledgeable staff, Chef Masa Miyake has created the best 5 star dining experience in the intensely competitive restaurant scene in the foodie city of Portland, Maine. Try the chef's selections, they ate expensive but worth every penny.

This place was recommended to us from locals when mentioning great places to dine and sushi. We of course looked on trip advisor and the reviews were outstanding with some minor service mishaps so we were excited to give this place a try. The service was fine not one problem there however this is not what someone might consider sushi!... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary during a get away to Portland. I love Japanese food and we had done some homework to find the best place in Portland, plus we had seen Andrew Zimmern eat here on his TV show. The place is pretty small and contemporary as opposed to having a traditional Japanese atmosphere.... More

A very special meal with food preparations you won't find anywhere else in Portland. I don't think it's the "best sushi" in Portland… The fish is fresh and expertly prepared, but I know one place I would rather go for sushi. That being said, the Japanese cuisine here is elevated and elegant. We ordered an Omakase meal and a 4... More

We were wanting Japanese food, and this restaurant turned out to be perfect. It was steamy warm on a very cold night, filled with customers obviously enjoying the food. We shared 4 small plates so we cold have a variety of foods and they were all excellent. We finished by sharing a bowl of low broth miso soup with many... More

This is my first time coming to Portland ME. My Japanese friend recommended Miyake and to be honest this is THE BEST BEST Japanese restaurant I have ever tasted in America. I have been living in US for 16 years and Miyake is by far the best!!!!! Everything I tried "Bento Box" was fantastic. The miso soup is out of... More

I came here for a birthday and am sad I have never come sooner. I had honestly thought it would be like any other sushi I have had, just your standard rolls with a nice atmosphere and maybe higher grade fish. Wow was I wrong. This is sushi unlike any I have had before, the whole experience from walking in... More

We had the omakase and sake pairing. So delicious and succulent. Standouts: the oyster in dashi, the duck breast, the toro, and the lobster sashimi. For dessert, chocolate pudding with miso caramel cream. Fabulous.
