After being there many times I was very disappointed. I was celebrating a birthday and the food was just okay. I don't know what happened to this restaurant. I don't know if I will go back there are so many other alternatives.

Always a good experience minus leaving new tom ford glasses which I am certain I did and disappointed that staff didn't return it. Very sad as it leaves me with bad experience!! Don't ever accidentally leave your valuables - they will not be returned. :(

Went back as in the past years we had a great experience during the Miami Spice event for lunch, we went back this year as it used to be great but I have to say that the quantity of food was really really small, everything good but really super super small, even too small for appetizers, so for this I don't think that it was worth having the Miami Spice. I don't know what happened between this year offer and two years ago where I remember going there for lunch for the Miami Spice and going home with food as I could not eat it all........................... hopefully if you go there and pay the normal price and not the menu the portions are reasonable.

Heard great things about this place. Was a bit disappointed with the food. I was hoping for super clean, healthy food. Was surprised how much fried food there was and sauces. Great service. Good cocktails and overall very good food; just never good to have such high expectations.

We always go back to Makoto and it has always been one of top 5 restaurants in Miami, but this time, we were disappointed with the food. The Miso Sea Bass off the Miami Spice menu was overly salty and sweet-- very different from the buttery miso sea bass we have had in the past when ordering from the regular menu. The Short Rib Yaki Noodles (regular menu), which we always order, were good but the portion was visibly smaller than normal. In terms of food, this has been our worst dining experience at Makoto, but maybe it's just that there's different chefs or that this year's Miami Spice Menu is not as good as previous ones. Regardless, we will probably be back; will order off the regular menu.

The wine list by Glass is very bad for this type of restaurant, if you are the only one having wine and the other person another drink ( like every time I go) its impossible to buy a bottle, and the 2 White Wines you have by the glass are very cheap wine from a very cheap restaurant ( it was not the case before)
Makoto was my favorite restaurant in Miami, not anymore, every-time I go now I get Disappointed, the Makoto Salad is not good anymore (*for example) , the carpaccio also very bad ... those were my 2 fav Plates

The food as usual very good, unfortunately the waitress that took care of us wasn't very kind. I went with 3 of my grandchildren and where excited to eat the meat on the rock, the rocks turned cold easily and she was very impatient when asked to replace them. We asked 5 orders of them.

Overall this was excellent. This was my third time at the restaurant and the best of our meals. We loved all of our food including the hummus appetizer, cold noodles with beef, sea bass, and amazing fruit dessert. We will be back.

Not as good it has to be
i ordered the salmon it was not fresh and a piece of plastic was in my plate ! even the sushis where not like they use to be service was good and they offered our dessert
i will try again because i like this restaurant
The food is absolutely amazing. But they ...
The food is absolutely amazing. But they need to organize their service a little better. They serve everything at once and too quickly. Dishes like these need to be savoured and its unappetizing to have 4 different dishes at the table when you're just two people eating. We had been served 3/4 of our food before even receiving the wine/sake we ordered. I like to enjoy my experience and it sometime feels too rushed at Makoto. That said, this is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in south Florida.

Recommended by a friend for our trip to Miami. Food was absolutely devine, the selections were varied and interesting. Seafood was very fresh. Try the Himachi, Kobe beef, eggplant and rock shrimp. Brilliant. Went back the next day for lunch, it was so good. Excellent service, as well.
