Our chef put on a delightful show. Food was outstanding. Service was above average. Waiting time was normal for this type of dinning.

Best hibachi on the beach!!! Always a favorite for us. I ordered shrimp and scallops. My husband had the "Mikato's King" which included filet mignon, shrimp and scallops. Everything was perfectly cooked. Delicious!!! Also came with soup and salad. Oh and the staff was friendly - the star was the cook- funny and entertaining.

Great service, the filet would melt in your mouth . the chicken was tender. Will visit again. The cook was great very friendly. The owner came out & chatted with us. Thought that was a nice touch.

We love eating at Japanese grills and restaurants, and always try to find one when we are abroad as I do not think there are many in South West England! Someone might tell us otherwise! In our limited experience, Japanese grills seem to be 45% showmanship and 55% food and we were not disappointed at Mikato. Like the Italian restaurant... More

Probably the worst dining experience I've ever had.... Food, customer service, it was all terrible. Had the spicy tuna roll (at first they just brought out slices of tuna, I said how was I supposed to know that this was this and not an actual sushi roll, the server didn't even know the answer to that. The server was rude... More

This place was an empty parking lot when we pulled up on a Saturday night. This is typically a bad sign, but I'm glad we went in! This place is one of the best Japanese steakhouses I have ever visited. Extremely high quality meats and seafoods. Fresh and delicious! The looks were deceiving, this place is high class! The owner... More

My wife and I love Japanese hibachi style food where we live in Missouri. We decided after being tired of the food at our hotel to splurge. We took our 3 kids. They did a great job and the cook was very friendly. We went early and it was not busy so it was us and two other people. The... More

This was once a nice place, maybe like how many years ago? Way overpriced for what they serve. ( shdlve been priced like a 9.99 meal) The soup at the hibachi was beef bouillon, the shrimp was good, but the filet was very thin cut almost as if it was a breakfast steak. The desert was little ice cream scoop... More
