Makoto Ratings and Reviews

Always a favorite of ours when we are in town. Highly recommend one make reservations. The Hamachi ponzu is terrific as is the branzino fish and the brussels sprouts. Actually, everything is tasty. Have not been disappointed yet. Wait staff is bustling as is the bar, so drinks take a bit to come out sometimes, but not a major problem.

I will say the food was great. My server was very attentive. We had a VERY noisy group next to us and she even offered to try and move me and my date. But there were no more tables available. She even said if it got to the point we could not take it she would tell them to keep quiet. :)
But since its a restaurant and they were just having a nice celebration i would never ask that. You just have to suck it up.
As for the price... Well its Bal Harbor. I should have expected it. Cost for two people after tip was $240. A few drinks will do that and the crispy rice dish with truffles will also increase your bill.

Como siempre la comida espectacular!
No se respeta el horario de reservación, supongo que por la temporada del año y su alta demanda pero una vez que pasas el servicio es excepcional.

Great food. We had the Rainbow roll and Shrimp tempura roll. Both were exceptionally fresh, not an absurd amount of rice. The ramen was good too. The broth is delicious, not the biggest fan of bean sprouts. The wagyu is delicious as well but the slices are so thin, definitely a snack for one. We went during lunch

We had a 9pm reservation but got our table at 9:30pm. Service was just OK and quite slow; somewhat erratic. We got no recommendations on drinks and / or special plates. We ordered a dish that never made it but eventually we found out they were out of such a dish.

second visit in this month, because I liked it the first time and liked it again: the food is outstandig in taste and presentation and generous servings, the service very friendly, kind and efficient. this time we ate inside and of course many people have been around- and on top the music made it a little to loud and unconfortable for a nice conversion: no wonder, that so many people just play with their apps instead of talking to each other!
The best food and service. We were stuck ...
The best food and service. We were stuck in traffic and called and they graciously hg ekd our table. Servers kind and happy.
