We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening and there was only one other table occupied, a couple sitting near the chef, who seemed to be friends or acquintances. I am not sure how or how long they will survive if this is their regular fullness... Despite this, we waited quite some time for our food to arrive, so... More

Warm, friendly and personal service. Large menu. Very clean, bright and pleasant atmosphere. Excellent sushi and sashimi. Not cheap, but good quality. Ask the owner about his special creations. (Salmon/salmon roe combo was really delicious! )

I went in last night to have some sushi, amazing! I had the spicy yellow tail roll, which is absolutely amazing! Arthur showed me the piece of yellow tail he used to show me the quality. I trust him when he says he only uses the freshest of fish! If you go in, ask for the volcano roll with black... More

We hadn't visited Mikaku in about nine months. It was time for a return flight, and my wife and I went with for dinner with another couple. I'm pleased to confirm that the Japanese food remains superb. Service was excellent. Prices remain reasonable, particularly for the usually high quality of the food. I award this venue 5 stars, difficult to... More

Very few people there. The bar is quite limited. Food is excellent and owners/chefs are very nice and helpful. Small sushi bar, but looks fresh.

My boyfriend and I walked in and instantly got a table. It wasn't busy when we went in, so we thought that this place might just be another small restaurant with only okay food. We ordered our food and were amazed when we tried it! The sushi was so delicious and filling! I have never had better sushi in my... More

The service at this place he is ridiculous. I was there for 2 hours tonight and only received appetizers and drinks. There were only 4 other tables one of which left an hour before we did after waiting 25 minutes or so for just drinks. The limited amount of food that I had was good quality but it's hardly worth...

My cravings for sushi are always satisfied by Arthur at Mikaku. Taking his knowledge and passion for Japanese food and culture, Arthur presents beautiful and unique sushi dishes. The fish is incredibly fresh and he has a fantastic, funny and knowledgeable personality. Always willing to share his stories of culture and history, I recommend a front row seat at the... More

We had one of the best Japanese meals at this restaurant. The food was tasty. Even the normally bland tasting Udon was flavorful. My sautéed scallops with vegetables was done to perfection, and the sushi was fresh. The wait staff was courteous, and the restaurant was clean and peaceful. However, the prices are a bit high, and the service was... More
