anybody that eats raw fish deserves a rude waitress. I could imagine smelling raw fish all day would make anyone rude. just sayin.. And i also think if some people would try waiting on tables for a while they would be a little more sympathetic. I am taking my family of 7 today and will let you know my exact thoughts later tonight but i'm going in with 5 stars yee haw and i'm not eatin raw fish.

The waitress in the sushi bar is absolutely the rudest person I have ever met. We went back a second time to give it another try and she was just as rude as the first time. She spilled water all over my husband's leg and did not even say she was sorry. The food is delicious if you can't get past the horrible service.

Me and my husband loved it. The cook we had at the grill was a lot of fun. Especially the joke he made about "Japanese Cowboy." My husband tells everybody about that. Also the food was wonderful and even had to get take outs. i recommend that place to everyone. I been there several times and will go back again. The service may not be good enough for rich people because they don't cut up the food for ya, but fine for those who used to McDonalds! Ha ha!

This review is for the Gulf Shores location.This place is absurd,My family and I have been twice and will NEVER return.The Sushi is decent at its best,The (cheap) basic rolls are the smallest I have ever had and they must be so ashamed by the prices of the (special) rolls that they dont even list the prices.I ordered the Mt Fuji Roll and was robbed,It was 6 small pieces of California Roll with some (basic) Baked Seafood on top.Once the bill arrived I realized this was $18.00.First visit was $160.00 for 4 and 2nd visit was 120.00 for 2.The service could only be enjoyed if you enjoy being entirely ignored by some Tila Tequila wannabe waitress.You can spend $160.00 in Sushi and still be ignored unless you are ordering Bar Drinks.Forget this trap and go th Daruma in Daphne or Yamato in Pensacola for the Best Sushi and Service you will ever get anywhere.

Pros: Very chic dining room

The cook had no showmanship at all in fact is was a race to see how fast he could cook our food, and he just plane looked mad during the whole ordeal. No egg toss which our grandsons 4 and 11 always enjoy, as well the tossing of the shrimp. Our bill usually runs about 190.00 to 300.00.. We always tip very good since we have a daughter in pre med that works at a restaurant part time. We will spread the word to all of our friends about our bad experience, we told several employees about the problem and it was, like oh well, we are sorry, maybe a better attitude would have been some comp or let me get the manger for you and find out what was wrong.. If I had wanted take out I would have went to take out.

I have been to Mikato's several times, you have to try the Bama roll (sushi) it is yummmmmmmm. I have had poor service on an occasion or two but the food is still great, I look past it. The restaurant themselves can not always help the attitude of the waitress, however I know every time I have ever had a problem, we never see that waitress again. So no matter what, give it a 2nd try if you don't like the first. I have never been disappointed in the food or the grill show.

I must start off and say that I have known Makado for years now and after a recent visit I feel compelled to share my experience. Everything there has definitely gone downhill. The food is the only thing that holds somewhat steady. It is certainly a fun atmosphere as a hibachi steak house, BUT the waitstaff is appalling. We went for a friend's birthday and decided to sit in the section only for Sushi on a basic tuesday night. There was only one other table filled there. Our server was GINA and I have never ever had worse service than hers. I was once a server in a past and I know how frustrating it can be sometimes, but we were nothing but pleasant with her. However, she was nothing but rude to us. She overcharged us on items, spilled one of our drinks and charged us to refill it, AND on top of that charged our birthday girl $7.00 to sing, bring some fruit and souvenir chopsticks. We had only asked if they sing and she neglected to say you had to pay for it. When we asked what the charge was for she accused us of being "rude." I have never written a review of anywhere, so I hope you understand how terrible it was with GINA. (The food is still good though!)

Pros: entertaining, food is still good

Cons: GINA the server, sneaky charges for items, lazy service

It was a nice place. It really deserves 3.5 stars. They don't have the famous "Yum Yum" (White Sauce), but the chef made the extra effort and had one of the waitress' prepare a little different version of the salad dressing for me to have. This made me feel pretty good and it made me far happier than I would have been had I not had the sauce. Everything was cooked pretty well, the other reviews are right on the money about waiting for your drinks though. We aware the only table our waitress had, and it took over 20 minutes to get the drinks for our table which is absolutely ridiculous. Like I said though, the chef was good, and even though it wasn't cooked exactly as I prefer, I can't base the review off of that due to other people liking food cooked differently. All in all, a nice place, but not the best. However, I've been to far worse, so its definitely not bad either. I would probably go again if I did not find a better place in the area.

Pros: Good, friendly, and experienced chef.

Cons: Lousy wait staff (some), expensive for a sub par meal, and no white sauce.

I have been to Makato many times and I guess I am a glutten for punishment. The service is poor and the waitstaff acts like you should feel honored to have them serve you. Especially the girl that waites on you at the sushi bar. The menu is very limited. Today when we went for lunch, we wanted UDON soup. They do not serve UDON. We did not want sushi and I was not keen on the hibatchi grill. The waitress was pissed that we were not ordering $40 worth of sushi. I have gotten better sushi at Fresh Market on Airport. Please drive the extra 20 minutes and go to Daruma in Daphne or Toyko in Fairhope. Mikato makes me feel used!

The Mikato first caught my eye because it was named after a famous Gilbert & Sulivan musical, "The Mikato." After my first visit, I was enchanted by it. All of the wait staff are in kimonos and the atmosphere is very elegant. It has both a sushi bar and hibachi grills. The hibachi chefs are a lot of fun and very generous with their food. The price is what I've come to accept as normal for Japanese food, about $10-20 a person depending on what you order. The sushi bar is nice too, although a bit small. They have some creative types of sushi; too many choices to cover in one night. For special occasions I love going to the Mikato.

PROS: Great tasting food with a fun atmosphere
CONS: Sometimes the waitstaff forget to refill drinks-a lot
