About Miso Izakaya
Izakaya literally means "stay sake shop." They were traditionally down-to-earth places where men drank sake and beer after work--essentially a Japanese-style tavern. As in Japan, we offer a comfortable style of dining centered around sharable plates and a variety of drinks, including sake, shochu, beer and cocktails. Our food changes seasonally, adhering to fundamentals of Japanese food while offering a unique take on traditional dishes. Enjoy yourself, relax, and linger with good friends, good food and good drinks.

Miso Izakaya Ratings and Reviews
This is such a wonderful neighborhood gym. Every meal we've ever had there have been fantastic and the service is always top notch. There's a little something for everyone, from sushi too small plates to entrées. They also have an amazing cocktail program if you want to imbibe
Being gluten free we were excited to try this popular sushi restaurant. Once we ordered and mentioned that we were GF we were told we couldn't eat anything with rice because they soak all their rice in a soy sauce that contains wheat- we had to leave because there wasn't much to eat besides a cucumber roll-
Usually very satisfied with Mizo, but tonight was not very good. The service was inattentive, had to ask others to bring more cocktails. The imperial roll fell apart, cucumber was cut way too thick. Salmon sashimi was ok, but seemed maybe a day too old and served w limes instead of lemon, which seemed odd. Spend over $100 every time we go here, so not cheap - will have to consider going to MF sushi next time.
We made a reservation for 6. We were seated in a booth by the kitchen. The booth wasn't large enough for our party and despite there being other open larger tables empty our entire meal, the host/manager refused to move us. He suggested we "adjust" and put a chair on the end of the table. This might have been OK if he had come over and talked to us about it, but he was frankly quite rude to one member of our party. Also, the booth was directly next to the kitchen entrance and service area so the person in the chair was pretty well disturbed constantly during the meal. They could have been nicer and more accommodating.
But the food was amazing and our waitress couldn't have been better.
Great for parties of 4 and under?
Kind of disappointing since we had come in from out of town for a ladies weekend and a great meal out.
Great food....service was slow and sporadic.....it seems like they don't have enough servers working....only 2 wait staff handling the entire restaurant it appeared....this is the 2nd time in last 2 weeks we've had subpar service....and I think it's more a factor of them being spread too thin than incompetence....
tasty food, but poor service. Restaurant was almost completely empty when we arrived for our 6pm reservation, but the hostess still acted a little put out when we asked for a table other than the one right by her podium. Also the food for the four of us arrived at different times, even though we asked for it to come out together. I was done with all of my food and our two guests were almost completely done too before my wife's seared tuna arrived at the table.
Given the poor service, this place is not worth the price.
This was the third time I've eaten at Miso Izkaya with friends. We shared a number of small plates and sushi. The sushi was excellent, the yellowtail collar was incredible and the cocktails and sake selection were great. This is a place to go with friends to have a meal in a restaurant that has very nice ambience.
Great food, great service, great table for our surprise birthday dinner for our friend. The final great is that it's a short walk from the neighborhood. Would it be unkind to hope that not too many more people find out about it ? I would hate to lose it to long lines and loud phone conversations..
We've dined at Miso Izakaya many times in the past and returned for Valentine's Day. We had a large sampling of the cooked small plates as well as a few items from the sushi bar. Everything was excellent and even with 2 drinks each, the bill was extremely reasonable. This really is one of the most consistently great restaurants in the area.
Miso Izakaya has been a long-time favorite for years now - but something's changed, not for the better. We went on Valentine's Day for the first time in a few months. Immediately we were warned that we should go ahead and order sushi because it would probably take 20-30 minutes - no big deal, we're laid back folks, and like their drinks. So we scramble together our Sushi order, and grab a couple of other items to tie us over - edamame, steamed buns (which are awesome), and some Ramen for my wife. The ramen comes out in like 2 minutes! Excellent! And then the buns, so I've got something to put in my belly while I'm waiting on sushi. No edamame, which they apparently forgot. No big deal.
And then...well, it took about an hour and 15 minutes for our sushi to come out. It wasn't even that busy, plenty of open tables - we didn't order any specialty rolls, nothing fancy (mostly nigiri and a yellowtail roll) and not even a lot of stuff. When it finally came out, I was so hungry I would've eaten anything. And it was *pretty good.* Not great, which is what we've gotten used to there. None of it was on our server, who you could tell was stressing (and we felt bad for her when we heard other tables asking about how long it was taking.) So all in all - it's different, not for the better, and not worth the wait IMO. Sure was good while it lasted, though.
