    I always go there when I go to Edmonton. But this time I was a little bit disappointed. I ordered the same menu that I always have. My tempura was not warm enough,(taste like pre-made) my friend's chicken was cold. I reserved a table, but the table wasn't ready and sticky. The server never asked me how my was food and never refilled my water. I still leave some tips, but honestly, I don't want to. This restaurant is always busy, hopefully, the owner hire more staff.

    We have been here multiple times and usually food service is fast. Tonight it took just over an hour to get our meal. Restaurant was busy but not completely full. Waitress was good and stayed in contact with us about the delay so that was good. May have just been a Mothers Day busy delay as we saw orders going out with “skip” also. Meal was delicious as always so that made up for it. Will go again.

    We enjoyed a delightful mother's day lunch yesterday. The staff was so friendly and very efficient. We loved the private western room. The food is the star of the show. We had bento boxes, dragon eyes and a lobster special. Everything was cooked to perfection. My favorite is tempura, especially the shrimp.

    I had the A2 bento box. I requested chicken instead of salmon. When the box came most of the food was cold except the chicken. The beef was cold and unappetizing. I mentioned it to the server who did bring me fresh beef. It was not sizzling as it usually is but medium warm. I was not impressed by my experience at Mikado

    Quiet place for lunch around 12, but lineup at hostess stand was quite busy on the way out. Decent service, but nothing to note and no fun small talk. Server did nothing to acknowledge the birthday at our table (noted in reservation), so birthday lunch could’ve been more special. Food did not come out at the same time so that was a bit awkward.

    I have found that lately the service at mikado has been terrible, and it was especially so this time. It took me a long time to get any initial service, I had to ask the host who our server was. Then ask another staff after a long wait if they could please point me to my server. It took a long time to get water at our table and then to place our order. In between I wanted to order something extra and the server was no where to be found. I had to ask multiple staff if they could please assist me in getting my server. As of late this type of experience has been a common experience at Mikado, which is too bad because I typically enjoy their food.

    Asked for a private room but they phoned me 15 minutes before the reservation to tell me they couldn’t accommodate that. Service was slow and it was a bit noisy (other patrons, not really the restaurants fault). Food was excellent.

    Our initial server had no answers about anything we asked. So, it seemed that they changed servers without us asking. The food was very good but the prices have sure sky rocketed. We used to go almost every 2-3 weeks, now we go every 6 months. Our bill used to $110 with tip including 3-4 drinks. Yesterday, we paid $170 with tip and 3 drinks. It's too bad because we started taking our small children there 10 years ago.

    Birthday dinner for our 14-yr old as part of our family birthday sushi tradition. Great food, super fresh fish, good portions. Would have liked more hot water for the tea, or another pot, and I miss the hot towels, but overall, was good and we will be back:)
