This restaurant blew our minds. Small plates, very creative and delicious menu, the sushi was extremely fresh and the other items were expertly prepared with tastes I borderline can't explain. If you are in Portland and like Japanese/Sushi, Miyake is a must.

Walked around down town trying to find a place that wasn't swamped during school vacation- so walked to miyake. We sat down to wait for a table, shortly after us a new couple came to wait next to us, the staff walked by several times saying they would be with us momentarily. Eventually a staff member came over and told... More

The food and service is excellent. Small but charming place. Noodle dishes are so delicious, filled different delights! Wonderful sushi rolls and side dishes.

We were pretty disappointed with lunch here today. The portions were minescule, the prices were exceptionally high and the server, while friendly and welcoming, had absolutely terrible timing. Oddly, the opener and salad for my wife's Tei Shoku meal came first while I sat staring at my empty place, waiting for the unagi roll we'd ordered for an appetizer. Ten... More

Based on the price and menu, I was excited to try the omakase. In the end, however, it very much felt like a "you get what you pay for" lesson in sushi. Course after course left me less than satisfied. Sea urchin, crab custard, sesame oil oyster and sushi/sashimi dishes that were just ok but nothing special. Unfortunately, we didn't... More

If you are not 100% willing to eat exactly what the chef prepares, this is NOT the place for you. Let me say first that if you have no dietary restrictions and do not ever ask for changes from the way a dish is prepared, the food is fine. The food doesn't live up to its reputation, but overall it... More

Went with wife and friend, so enjoy Asian food, but very pleasantly surprised at the offerings. Typical Japanese options, but have some really cool dishes. Ordered a snapper head - one of my favorite fish dishes, I've ever had. Great atmosphere and seating at bar where food is made right in front of you.

Went here with my parents the other night. From the hype we were expecting a Morimoto like caliber to this place. The service was exceptional, waitress was very kind and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was too bright and we felt uncomfortable eating there. The chefs tasting menu I don't feel was worth it. The food was kind of typical of a... More

Living in NYC and with the many Japanese restaurants I had to try this in Maine especially with their prices. When compared to NYC prices for Omakase, this one was a definite must try during our stay. We ordered the Omakase which is a 7 course meal and also the 4 course dinner. Depending on what 4 items you choose... More

This is a high end Japanese experience. This is just not a sushi bar. These folks take great pride in the high quality ingredients they serve and the presentation is beautiful. We had the four course tasting menu. There were plenty of selections and the portions were on the smaller side but enough to fill you up. The tuna three... More
