I was looking at the rating of 3 and half stars and just about fell over. My husband took me to Miyabi's Dec. of 2009 for a christmas dinner and this was the first time for both of us, let me just say out of this world grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat. O and just to let you know we lived an hour and a half from the restaurant and went back several times to eat again so that should let anyone know how great the Food, Service and Entertainment is. Please go if you want FAB U LOUS Japanese Food.

Kundos to the Miyabi of Fayetteville. The customer really does get a lot of bang of his/her buck.Great Food and nice dinning area. It is very normal to be seated with other people you dont know., so if you dont like that idea, dont go. Nice to see that there is a dress code,but I wish they would hold to it. But then again this is Fayetteville and the norm is poe-dunk people who are clueless about "dress code" for the most part. The owner has been successful to bring something nice to our area and being a waiter myself there are always complainers who complain about a 3.99 chopped sirlon, eat it and then want their money back.
Have a wonderful time at Miyabi and arrive around 4pm if you dont have a reservation. Wait time is about 1 hour. BUT it is worth it for sure.

I really liked this place. Immediate attention, great service, great food, and the portions will not possibly leave anyone hungry! I was a bit jealous that the chef that served us was not as entertaining as others in the place, but she was very attentive to what we wanted and was very friendly. The sashimi and sushi were delicious. Anyone who has been there can attest to the portions....if you are on a budget, enjoy the place and share a meal; you may still have to get a take-home box. Will definitely recommend it to all my friends.

I have been dining at this restaurant for over a year now and it is one of my favorite places to go. My company has booked group dinners here with minimal effort. The staff is accomodating. As with previous postings on this site, you have no control over the types of people who may sit with you to dine, but you do have a right to mention the chef's behavior to the management who will deal with the employee immediately. I do like the fact that you can request to the chef that slight changes be made to the use and amount of certain products to prepare the food. I have seen the chef separate portions of foods to accomodate the customer. All in all, I believe it is a great place to dine.

This is a great place for a special occasion! My husband and I loved taking the kids here for some good entertainment and yummy food! We love their sushi! Oh, and the soup that you get before the meal is so delicious!

Ummm, to the last reviewer....you ARE in Fayetteville. Exactly WHAT did you expect???? Hmmm, a town full of military personnel, a great deal of which are young males. If you have expectations, at least make them realistic.

The comments from the "wounded soldier" are a little harsh. I am also a "wounded soldier" and I have never had any problems with this restaurant and always found that they are first class all the way. I have been in this area for 19+ years and have never heard anything bad about his restaurants. The owner is a very nice gentleman and does his best to make your visit a nice experience. It is a very nice restaurant and any bad reviews towards these folks are out of line. He has a growing business and is one of the top restaurants in this area. The 20 dollars a plate is well worth the price, you are paying for good food, the nice atmosphere and the entertainment that goes along with it. Highly recommend to everyone!

I am a wounded soldier recovering here at Fort Bragg, and when my family came to visit, I took them to Miyabi Steak House. I also took my wife here on our anniversary dinner and a couple of other dinner dates.
The restaurant is nice, right on Skibo road, so be careful when turning into the parking lot if there is a lot of traffic. Make sure you get a reservation; they only open after 4pm and many people try to fit in spur of the moment, so wait time is usually 45 minutes to an hour without a reservation. The atmosphere is nice, although the waiting area is more of a social bar setting. There is a dress code, but when I called them, they said women must cover their belly's, and men must not have sleeveless shirts, which leaves room for many interpretations. However, I recommend casual to formal wear. I have been here three or four times, and they have always seated me at a table for eight, but I understand that you can request smaller tables, although I have not seen any of them. The tables are large, and the chef's make your food right there on a very large metal cooking surface. The chef's take your order, and prepare it to your liking, however, if you like sushi, make sure you ask for the separate menu. (they do not tell you they have one, but it is a good menu)The chef's do some fancy little cooking displays, not much, but enough to keep your children entertained, but no fire. :) (It is not as good as Benihana's) They serve shrimp and vegetable appetizers that are tasty before the meal, as well as soup and salad. The favorite items seem to be shrimp, chicken, and/or steak.The shrimp are only small in size, not the jumbo shrimp I am used to. They serve a very large amount of rice with the meal, so come hungry. Almost everyone that I have seen coming in take half or more back with them when they leave.
I will say that the rice should be cooked a little better. It is somewhat undercooked, and since I grew up in a rice eating country, I usually think rice should be cooked a little softer, but the chef's do heat it up on the cooking surface and add some sauce to make it enjoyable.
The staff sing funny songs for b-days/anniversaries, and play some jokes on the kids. My downside version to this is that it is still not the highest quality of service or the best food for such a nice setting. I spent many years in Seattle and quite a bit of time in DC, as well as over 20 years overseas, and when I think of nice restaurants, I think of formal wear, perfect service and exquisite food for being so expensive. The restaurant is still mediocre for the price. When I took my parents and my wife, I spent over 70 dollars, almost 20 dollars a plate. That is why I only gave a satisfactory rating.
It is one of the nicer restaurants in Fayetteville, though. You will leave feeling very full and satisfied, and a little lighter in the wallet. It has a very nice feeling when you walk in, and one of the most impressive waterfalls in the foyer/receiving area. People, including me, cannot resist putting your finger in it to see if it is real water coming down. They put some strobe lights on high speed to make an amazing visual effect.
I do not eat sushi, but my friends say that the sushi is pretty good, and I know that many customers come for the sushi for dinner.
That's all. Thanks.

Considering the 30 min wait for a table, I was appalled at how quickly we were rushed through our meal. The server brought boxes and offered to pack up our food while we were still eating! So they pretty much stopped our dinner, and while I thought I would at least stay and finish my sushi we were swarmed by glaring busboys, hovering over us like buzzards, rolling there eyes and tapping their feet. So rude.

Although the sign up front says "appropriate dress required" one might wonder what that dress might be as most of the patrons on the night we went were in T-shirts and shorts. The overall decor in the waiting area gives the feel of a up-scale wine or cigar bar, but the regular flow of what I would consider under-dressed patrons detracted from the allure. Seating times were what you'd expect on a weekend night, and drinks were reasonable. Dinner itself is the standard teppanyaki-fare and the prices range from mid 10's to upper 20's. We were a little put-off by some of the off-color remarks that our chef made throughout the evening, and I was particularly offended when he decided to repeatedly swat a decidedly large portion of rice as if to simulate spanking what I could only infer to be a woman's behind. This decidedly crude act along with a few of his more crass remarks to the waitress made it hard for me to treat the evening as a romantic or even family dinner, and more as a mix of "Chappelle's Show" reruns and Food Network programming. The food itself was enjoyable but certainly not gourmet, rice tended towards over doneness and the chicken's natural flavors were overshadowed by the excess of sauces used to cook (and I daresay salinate) the chicken, although most asian cuisine in the US is forced to loose it's natural subtlety to adjust to typically more bold American tastes, so I was not surprised in that respect. Overall, we felt like we were jumping into a meat grinder of sorts as soon as we sat down. Waitresses were polite but curt, the other chefs seemed to handle themselves with more decorum than our chef, although to be fair everyone at our table seemed to enjoy his humor more than I.

Bottom line: If you've got a large wallet and and can't get enough Benihana-style "pack 'em in and push 'em out" style eating; this is your place. Otherwise, there are better selections; which is dissapointing when you consider the amount of potential Miyabi has.
