"Sam" the cook was fantastic! Worth every $ paid for a hibachi grill dinner. We visit every year and are never disappointed. You also get a discount for the birthday person with ID.

If you haven't tried Japanese food. you can't go far wrong eating here. The seats are placed around a central cooking area, where you watch how things are cooked. This means you share the area with up to 11 people depending on how many are in your party. For me it was a party of four and therefore we shared... More

I ordered the Alaskan King Salmon Dinner for take out. The salmon was cut into tiny pieces and overcooked on an obviously dirty grill. Grilled vegetables must have been cooked on the same grill with the taste of old reused oil. Check out the photos to see what this $24 entree looked like. Stay away.

Sushi and very reasonably priced. Didn't have hibachi dinner but a little pricey. Staff and management wonderful. Must have the tuna chopped salad.

Went to dinner there last evening and was appalled at the fact that the manager sent away a large party due to a special needs child. The food was so so but after seeing this I will never return and am fully disgusted!!!!

We took the tapanyaki option. Menu is pretty substantial and we got the usual show from the chef which is kind of amusing providing you don't sit down to this every week. Waiter service and so on is fine. But food was a little bland in my opinion. Place was clean and food was fresh but was lacking in any... More

Celebrated Valentines here and had a fabulous time. We arrived just when they opened and was seated right away. The chef was amazing and put on a wonderful show. He involves you in his acts. Will definitely go back and a camera is a must.

The food was decent but the service was terrible. To have the restaurant charge me 20% for service is an absolute joke. Who the hell are they to do that if I can't get service? How do we not have a say in that if the guy didn't come to our table after the drinks were served. The restaurant is... More

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
