Poor customer service

I am not sure what the problem is here but I gave this place 3 tries. It not racism because there are tons of reviews on Yelp of the same kind of customer disservice that I got.

The first time they were sort of nice but I was with someone else.

The second time I was on my own and the service would be best described as politely hostile.

The third time they refused to serve me at all.

NEVER again.

Why three tries? The food is good, that's why.

Lovely food and atmosphere.

Our family has been coming here for years. The food and service is consistent and the atmosphere is quite pleasant. We particularly like the Chawan Mushi.

Best Deal for Authentic Japanese Food

""I just had my first meal at Miraku. It was outstanding! I had Yaki Gyoza, Seaweed Salad and Tempura. The food was fresh, tasty, elegantly presented and served, and very reasonably priced. I lived in the Far East for 10 years, including 3 years in Japan and Miraku's food and decor is, in my opinion, quite authentic. I have spent a LOT more money for food substantially inferior to Miraku. I didn't sample the Sushi or Sake, but will do so on my next visit, which will be soon!""

Dining at Miraku

An afternoon or evening spent at Miraku is one that is remembered. I have been a frequent diner there for years, and I have many reasons for this.

Their fish is always fresh and never has a distinct fish smell. If you smell anything other than the sea, or nothing, than stay clear.

The customer service is exceptional even when they have a full house.

They will make changes for you do to diet or allergy restrictions. If your server does not know the answer to your question, s/he will find someone who does.

They serve fresh house sake, which goes bad in 2-3 days just like wine. I have never been served rancid sake.

Their pricing is a little high, but you pay a price for great food, drinks, and service!

Not too Shabby

It was a quaint little spot. Service was ok - food pretty good. I am partial to House of Sake in that the staff is much more friendly and the menu is much more clear and elaborate. The ambience at Miraku is a bit different than House of Sake - more booth space I believe.

Parking is a hassle here - like most WC locations. However most of their parking is street parking which always poses more of a problem than a lot that fills up (like House of Sake)

New Sushi Favorite

Looking for great sushi is hard but I was able to find what I was looking for in Miraku. Gracious service, delicious food, & a relaxing atmosphere is commonplace. If you want great sushi at a reasonable price, Miraku is the place.

Found my new Japanese Spot

Our quest is over...fresh fish and very reasonable priced. Was packed on a Sat PM. The front of the house staff seemed crazy busy but we had good service once we were seated. The decor was nice Japanese without being over the top. Very mixed crowd. My sushi was delish and my husbands beef teryaki was super tender (make sure you get a side of the tasty teriyaki sauce). Just be prepared to wait on a Saturday night if you get there at prime dining hours (7/8).

Good Sushi, Bad Lip Readers

i've been to miraku twice and both times i've been pleased with the sushi. it's not the best sushi in the east bay, but manages to be the best in walnut creek. the 911 roll isn't as fearsome as it's name, but still offers a mild kick. the fish is fresh and the prices were on par with most other sushi places. you'll want to bring an ear horn to give to the waittress though. apparently, the customer is not right and i managed to order ""some hamachi, some hamachi, some hamachi and some hamachi"". if you're looking for good sushi in the WC, miraku is a good bet. just make sure you bring a megaphone while ordering.
