I purchased a Groupon for $15 ($30 value) to use at Miyagi's. My boyfriend decided to use it on a Wednesday evening for dinner. When we arrived, we were told by a Japanese man (who we assume was the manager) that we could not eat there because a waitress had called in sick and they did not have enough staff to assist us. Another group arrived at the same time and were told the same thing. There were about 5-6 tables already seated with a sole waitress attending to them. We left, dissapointed, as we'd driven about 20 minutes from home to eat there, as well as use my almost-expired Groupon. If I were the manager, I would have explained the situation and been helping to serve the customers myself. To turn away business is a little shocking.
When we returned a week later, we were able to get a table. Our waitress was extremely hurried and, when speaking, was at a very low volume. We could barely understand her. She was very young and when we ordered a bottle of wine, she brought it to us but had no clue how to open it or do any kind of wine "presentation". While this is not a fine-dining or even a typical wine establishment, I was a bit turned off by the fact that this server had not the slightest idea of how to serve our wine properly. This should at least be a basic function of waitstaff. At the very least, pour the glasses before bringing them (and the open bottle) to the table.
The sushi was okay - large portions - but I've had better at other places in Indianapolis. Especially considering the extremely high prices.
The service was what truly made us not want to return again.
