It was nice they didn't make us wait for a full grill table. Food was plentiful and very good. Very nice restaurant for DeKalb.

Always an enjoyable time at Mikimoto's. entertaining chefs prepare an excellent meal at the grill. You will be seated with other visitors and that offers a chance for interesting conversation along with your dinner.

Mikimoto is a great place to bring the family for fun around the hibachi table. The chef puts on a good show and the kids really enjoy it. More importantly; the food is great! I also like to go to Mikimoto for the sushi which is always fresh and in they have many different rolls to choose from.

Table side preparation with great performance by the chefs. Very fun for all who sit at the cook surface that seats 10. You can end up with strangers but it is all very fun and communal as the chef prepares your steak and another's scallops and lobster. The salad dressing on the included salad is amazing and for those who... More

I had the sushi and it was nasty. Tasted old, hard, and no flavor. Only bright spot was the young lady at the bar. She was great! So come for a drink, just don't eat the food.

We went to Mikimoto's to celebrate our anniversary. We had never been there and wanted to do something different. We had reservations, so we were seated right away. Reservations are not necessary, but recommended. We were seated with a group of 4 college aged kids. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. We chose the steak hibachi. It was very... More

Mikimoto is fun to visit for dinner and a show. The food is great, the chef's are entertaining, and the drinks, while pricey, are at least strong. It's a great place to visit to celebrate birthdays, graduations, or have a fun date night. Be warned, however, that many people agree on that matter, and be sure to get a reservation... More

I was visiting family in Genoa and they recommended this as a place for a special meal. The meal itself was outstanding- i went for the Hibachi steak and scallops. IN Scotland (where i live) scallops are extortionate and so I was expecting a tiny portion. However, i was happy when i received a mound of scallops, and a good... More
