Best Food in LA 9/4/2006

Mako never disappoints. I've been coming to Mako almost monthly for several years now & it never ceases to be a great dining experience. Mako is a very talented chef & does amazing things with French technique and an Asian twist. The food is so very good & every item on the menu is executed beautifully. Some of my favorites are the sashimi combo, crispy oysters, the chinese chicken salad, the baby lamp chops & the duck. The service is just as good as the food. All the servers are so friendly & I'm on a first name basis with Mako, John the host, & most of the waitstaff. I love sitting at the counter so that I can watch everything being prepared in the kitchen. Mako also does an amazing sake tasting menu at certain times of the year when really top-grade sake is in season. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to know where to eat in LA & will continue to eat here as long as it's open. Pros: Explosion of flavor, Beautiful decor & ambience, friendly & knowledgeable waitstaff more

Salty sauces overwhelm any potential subtlety in food 8/9/2006

Mako restaurant is a chic, ""shi-shi"" Asian fusion restaurant in Beverly Hills aiming at ""Foodies"", but their intent falls short, due to the salty sauces drowning any potential subtlety of flavors. \r \r Saving graces are a very friendly waitstaff, and stylishly minimalist atmosphere. Portions are ""appetizer"" size, as the menu is considered a ""tasting"" menu, however as is predicted, the bill adds up as diners order enough dishes fill up.\r \r Mako restaurant will suit those with high budgets who wish to cohabitate with a stylish foodie crowd in a chic minimalist environment and consume myriad tasting portions of very salty Asian fusion dishes.\r \r \r \r Pros: Friendly, attentive waitstaff and stylish, minimalist atmosphere Cons: Overwhelmingly salty sauces mar any subtely in flavors more

We loved everything... 2/28/2006

Very good place that we ll recommend to everybody Good job... Pros: location, food, service more

it was... okay... 2/14/2006

i just went to mako for valentine's day, and i have to say i was underwhelmed. perhaps it was an off night (although it shouldn't have been!) my boyfriend and i shared the calamari salad, shrimp spring rolls, pad thai with shrimp, and snow crab tempura. every single dish was waaaaay too salty, which was very disappointing. honestly, it was comparable to greasy chinese take-out. the ambience was severely lacking as well--the restaurant is just too small! our experience had two saving graces: our waitress was wonderful, and the dessert (chocolate cake with raspberry sauce) was fantastic! however, i simply cannot recommend this place. what a shame. Pros: pretty inexpensive, chocolate cake, attentive service Cons: salty, salty, salty more

A Great Restaurant in a Food Lover's Paradise 2/28/2005

Another great restaurant in Beverly Hills! I visited Mako on a date and was impressed with the cusines. All the dishes are served 'tapas' style........for sharing. Service was excellent, as was the atmosphere of the restaurant. Too bad my date didn't end up matching the quality of the meal. Pros: Food , Service, Atmosphere more

GRAZING HAS TAKEN ON A NEW MEANING! 6/28/2002

Casual fine dining is finally fun! Mako's creativity still flourishes with his new concept changes. The tasting plates (single servings-to taste and share)- the variety of choice (loved the Asian Insalata Tomato Salad, the Lamb OssoBucco with 5 Spice Braising Sauce, the Mako style Pad Thai, Killer Green Beans, and Chinese Black Rice Gomoku Vegetable Stir Fry) and the flavours and textures coming out of this kitchen continues to impress - Mako is a master of sauces: Sweet, Spicy, Tangy, and Tasty. The price point is fair:. No longer is Mako ""over-priced"" (price ranges from $5.00 - $18.00 per dish) Costs are based on how much you want to taste/chow down and wash it down with. Pace yourself! The Wine List still rules! Good selections of Cal, Euro and New World wines. The ""Premium"" Sake additions to the wine list are a nice touch for this new ""plate"" style cuisine. Pros: Chef is in control, Fab Food, Good Wine/Sake List Cons: You'll want more! more

MAKO IS CUTTING EDGE-NOTES FROM A FOODIE 6/24/2002

Check out celebrity Chef MAKO TANAKA and his new menu concept (starting Summer 2002):WHAT FUN! I call it Tapa-nese. Tasting plates -like Tapas- they call it Kei-ken - Food for Sharing. Highlights of the new menu is Sauteed Peppercorn Shrimp with Tangy Potato Salad Gomoku Chinese Black and White Fried Rice with confit of Seasonal Vegetables; Summer Tomato Salad with Tofu dressed with a Dried Shiso Leaf Plum Vinaigrette reads like an Asian Insalata Caprese - bright and clean on the pallete and I (am not a big tofu fan) loved it. The Whole Wok Fried Whole Fish of the Day with a Black Bean Truffle Sauce was the hit of the night - people were crunching on the bones! For the amount of food you end up trying definitely worth the price. With food this yummy, its no wonder that this place a secret industry hang out! Pros: Interesting Concept, More Veggie Options, Secret "IN" Scene Cons: Pacing Yourself, Can Get Crowded more
