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.

I have been at makoto hundreds of time,the waitress taken care with us was a total nightmare.She is a better fit for danny's instead.
Wagyu came in with appetizers which is the main course and we ordered 2 check came in total of 4 order.
99 times i have been makoto,i paid the check never seen wrong check before.
Makoto lost us forever.ps; they consistently change the menu items for god sake just let your servers notify,update customers about the change.
Ordered robata cauliflower,she freaking brought Whole cauliflower with wierd sause on top an whole big cauliflower like purchased from publix and ranch sause on top.

Although we paid like it was a Michelin star rated restaurant it was not. When you go to a high end sushi bar you can taste quality fish almost in every nigiri. Not here. Apart from the Toro, every nigiri was just ok. Service took forever. Ok for trying, not returning

It's not easy to say a restaurant is amazing , this restaurant is in every sense of the word, is one of the best in Miami Dade , good ambience , Good food , great service . I find Miami to be a very unique place , but the restaurants that are good usually the service is not excellent . I would defenetly give Makoto the upmost rating. By the the way we are not tourist!! We live in Coral Gables and we eat in Makoto often!! Would defenetly recomend it to everyone!

The food was exceptional - so good, we went back the next night to try some of the other items in the menu.
The bone in ribeye is a must. The presentation is phenomenal and the taste is even better. The crispy rice tuna rolls are also a must. If you like desert the fruit taban yaki is to die for.

Had the oh-toro sashimi for appetizers and robata grilled lamb chops and Wagyu short rib for an entree = perfection! All very amazingly delicious. My first time here and won't be my last I will come back to Florida for many of the restaurants I tried during vacation and this is definitely one of them.
Returning to Makoto after few month...always delicious, the food is fresh and well prepared. Unfortunately the service is not always what you expect..I received my main course before the starter and I was ready for the dessert while my husband was still waiting for his entrée.
We were seated promptly and our waiter was very friendly. We ordered 3 appetizer/small plates and one entre (king salmon) and shared among three people. the broccoli tempura was delicious, and the spicy tuna crispy rice was wonderful. The California roll was fresh, but seemed sort of bland as compared to usual. The King Salmon entre took excessively long to be served, was undercooked (cooked, but too pink and mushy on the inside), and was not as good as usual. For how long it took, I'm not sure why it still was not cooked. The texture was unpleasant. However, the service was still great, and I will still go back, but probably just stick with the small plates.
