Above average for this type dining experience. Price/value is great with quality far above the cost. This is especially true at lunch. A "locals" favorite with good reason.

If its fresh and awesome sushi you want, you've found it. The dedicated sushi bar is wonderful with attentive service from the staff and the sushi chefs. On this visit we didn't have hibachi, but the show and the food is also delicious.

While most folk go here for the grill [robata style cooking on large grill with customers seating on three sides], their sushi bar is outstanding. We opted for the sushi area and could benefit from both types of food. The sushi is excellent, good flavors, blends and large selection. We also ordered from the 'grill' menu and had, therefore, the best of hot and cold Japanese food items. Service was outstanding. I highly recommend reservations, however, and they are busy every day!

We visited Makoto's on a busy pre-holiday night and had a great experience in the Sushi Bar. The food was outstanding and we sampled several dishes. We also discovered their martini creation made with Maple Crown and Fu-Ki plum wine and are now happily serving it to our guests at home. Even though it was a busier night than expected our server, Nancy, was a delight! We will definitely go back with family and friends.
