Makoto is an upscale Japanese restaurant in Bal Harbour. It’s expensive and usually requires a reservation - but a meal here just isn’t worth the effort and money. There’s nothing particularly special about Makoto that puts it on the same level as other great sushi restaurants in Miami. And the quality here is hit or miss. Makoto just feels like the kind of restaurant that may have been exciting five or ten years ago, back when great sushi was slightly less plentiful in Miami. But now that you can find better nigiri, crispy rice, wagyu, and sashimi in plenty of other Miami restaurants that both feel and look more exciting - there’s just really no point in coming here.
