If there's one thing that infuriates me about restaurant dining, it's watching people that came in after you get served before you – and that pretty much sums up my visit to Makimono. I showed up in my blue-collar work clothing looking for an interesting and different lunch experience, but instead watched at least two other tables who had patrons dressed in business suits receive service that was far better than what I received, and both had their main food orders arriving at their table before my appetizers even arrived, despite arriving and being seated after myself. Multiple waitresses actually passed by my waitong order sheet countless times, all while doting on the business patrons constantly.
The food was decent but IMHO didn't seem as "crisp and fresh" as one of my other favorite sushi restaurants. A standout, however, was the peppered beef - an excellent quality cut or meat, cooked and seasoned to perfection.
The atmosphere is very upscale - to the point where a casual diner may seen underdressed or feel uncomfortable. It's also very darkly lit, which adds to the mood, but (IMHO) is a negative overall.
Pricing was reasonable, however I can't honestly say that I will rush back.
