    Our recent visit to Shusai Mijo left much to be desired. While the food was undeniably exquisite, the overall experience was marred by incredibly poor service. Upon arrival, we were greeted with indifference by the host maître’d. The ambiance, though initially promising, was quickly overshadowed by the terrible service. We were constantly made a mockery out of and the host maître’d could not stop rolling his eyes at our choice of no alcohol for the night and my friend’s enjoyment of the pickled ginger. Furthermore, they did not try to cater to our dietary requirements when most high end establishments would be more than happy to offer replacements at the exorbitant price that we were paying. When we informed the waitress of our dietary requirements, her “shocked” attitude is one where I would question if she should be working at a fine dining eatery. While the culinary creations showcased undeniable skill and creativity, the overall experience fell short of expectations due to the abysmal service. Dining out is not just about the food; it's about the entire experience, which unfortunately was sorely lacking at Shusai Mijo. For the premium price charged,the service was shockingly subpar as one would expect a seamless blend of outstanding cuisine and attentive service, which sadly was not delivered during our visit. I would caution anyone considering dining here to temper their expectations, especially if they value attentive service, but for those who prioritize exceptional cuisine and are willing to overlook service shortcomings, we definitely cannot fault the food quality.

    It was truly an exceptional experience at Shusai Mijo. From the moment I stepped in, I was greeted warmly by the staff, and the ambiance was serene and inviting. The chef's selection of dishes showcased the freshest ingredients and expert craftsmanship. Each course was a delightful journey of flavors and textures, meticulously prepared and beautifully presented. What truly stood out was the personalized attention and care given to each guest. The chef took the time to explain each dish, sharing insights into the ingredients and culinary techniques used. It's a place where food becomes art, and every bite is a moment to savor. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable dining experience that is private with comfort, then this is the place to be !

    Shusai Mijo is an exceptional establishment. Jun prepared a spectacular omikase as we sat and watched. Only the freshest ingredients were used to make the most delicious eight courses - which Jun explained upon serving. We opted for sake pairing which was an amazing experience. The sommelier considered each course carefully, pairing high end sake with each course - his wine knowledge was insane. The ambience was the perfect backdrop for an amazing, unforgettable night. Best Japanese dining experience we’ve had outside of Japan.

    Amazing food! Loved the snow crab starter with kombu jelly. Chawamushi was delicious with abalone in it. 10 sushi pieces were intricately made and some were seasoned and had Yuzu and kombu on top which made it different. Hokkaido scallops were good and so was the sushi scampi made 2 ways so the sushi was cut in half. Miso soup had ginger slices and mochi inside which was delicious and different. Already planned my next visit ❤️
