Makoto Ratings and Reviews
Very high prices, I was surprised. Edamame $14 is the highest I have seen. The salad came with almost no dressing we had to ask for more. The beef entree that you cook on the table was slivers of translucent beef more like an appetizer, very small portion. The Mochi dessert was nothing special. The service was good and attentive. The ambiance was busy and loud, a scene place for sure. I would not return unless I was invited and someone else pays.
For some items, such as the short rib yaki noodles, portions have got smaller. The maki's rice texture was off--not sticky enough-- and the slices were not even. Service is consistently average. But, it is still one of the better options for Japanese food in the city.
Only one comment:
Japanese Wagyu was not the same quality as the last few times we have had it. I asked, the type of meat has changed from KOBE to another cut of beef. It was not nearly as good as it was the last few times we ate it. We wont order it again
...BUT we will definitely be back- everything else was great!
My 1st visit but my companion has dined here before. Staff was very pleasant, informative, and attentive when needed without being intrusive. Menu had plenty of variety to choose from. Quantities were pleasantly ample for this type of cuisine (I didn't need to stop for a snack on the way home!). Food was flavorful without being heavy-handed with the spices. I look forward to my next visit soon to graze through more of the menu selections that caught my interest! Thanks!!!
The service was perfect. The hostess ... amazing.
Food is incredible as always. I went there for ever and I will not stop today !
I eat very often outside in restaurants.I also own a restaurant so I know what I say ! Makoto is the best !
I always recommend Makoto as the best restaurant in Miami. My favorite one !
This is my third or fourth time here. Make it a point to go everytime I am in Miami. It is amongst my favorites along with Zuma and Ola. Tried the Octopus this time - was not a huge fan. my favorites of Watermelon fire and ice and hamachi ponzu did not let down. the house salad is excellent. will be back.
We went to take advantage of Miami Spice week to try different dishes and everything was delicious. We ordered the grilled avocado which was very good and the Hamachi Ponzu which was excellent. For main course we ordered the Chirasi and the Sea Bass and both were very good. As usual it was a little loud but the service was outstanding!
Normalmente vamos y la comida es excelente. Por primera vez no comimos con la calidad que estamos acostiumbrados en el restaurant. El hummus sabia completamente distinto, bueno pero mucho mas fuerte que siempore. Nuestros Short Ribs noodles practicamente no tenian short ribs, era puro noodles y repollo. El Miso Sea Bass estaba excelente como siempre.
Le daremos otra oprtunidad, pewro quedamos preocupados con la calidad de los platos
