Great place to take kids. Bit expensive but generous portions. Chef's show can range from fair to really good. Usually crowded. Tips are already included on your bill.

This is a good Japanese restaurant. They automatically add a tip. The chefs cook the food in front of you. The fire is entertaining to adults and kids. Drinks are always refilled. They give you all of the shrimp sauce you want for no charge...More

It's a shame that the Makoto's compensation for chefs includes an incentive for them to hurry from one table to the next. Often, the chefs are taking shortcuts and not taking time to properly cool the menu items. Carrots are almost always served barely warm....More

The quality of the food was marginal and almost everyone in our party had stomach issues after the meal. The prices are very high in view of the small portions and I would not choose to eat there again.

Had an excellent meal. Great food, great service. But where is the heat in this place? We had to wear our coats and hats in the restaurant and were still cold. Had we had older/younger folks with us we would have had to leave.

The food was what you would expect from a Japanese Steak House. Pretty much the same show, same food, same service.
