We stopped at a nearby hotel after driving all day and asked the desk clerk if the Miraku was a good place to eat. She said that it was and that our room key would get us a 10% discount. So we ventured in. The place was divided into two dining ares, one for the hibachi tabletop cooking and the... More

We live close so we go there often, not a popular as some other steak houses in Gainesville but we like the owner (they work hard) and they try to make it enjoyable. Food always good. Don't have a 30 min wait like some places!

Driving thru Gainesville on the way back to MD, we asked at the desk of the Hampton Inn about Miraku which we had passed on the way to the hotel. The asst. mgr's face lit up and said he ate there at least once/month and loved it. The entrance into the restaurant leads one through a Japanese garden with a... More

Lady chef was also the bartender, so it took awhile. sushi was ok but nothing special. The place was pretty empty at 7:30 on a Thursday night. I was the only one at the sushi bar.

My father and I were staying at a nearby hotel and it looked really interesting from outside so we decided to give it a try. The interior decoration was pretty cool as well but could use a little sprucing up. We waited like one hour for food and some people at other tables waited even longer. The sushi/sashimi was average... More

Nothing super special but a fine place to eat. Though I will say the Sake was quite good. Nice for a big group. We did the Teppan Table and had a good time

Looks interesting from outside. Even inside looks OK if you don't look at the carpet, it is warn, dark and looks dirty. The tables are OK but some seats need repairs. Service is fine. The food is unimpressive. Sushi tastes like it came from the grocery store. The restroom looks like it belongs at the cheap gas station. Disappointing.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and asked the front desk what they thought of this restaurant. They told us that they had only heard good things. Boy, were they right! We walked past the beautiful koi pond and into a clean, neat restaurant. We were promptly seated and greeted. I then kiddingly asked if I could feed the... More

Excellent food, and wait staff was very accommodating to people in our group who wished to modify their order. The chef at our table was very entertaining, and cooked the food EXACTLY as ordered, something I don't always find. Children in our party were willingly accommodated.
