We had dinner here last night and it was basic at best. We were sat upstairs in the overflow section on outdoor furniture. Kind of odd... The food needs updating, we felt like it was stuck in the 90’s - plating, seasoning, ingredients. My sea bass had an orange jelly on it which was not good. Sea bass doesn’t need anything fancy - it’s sea bass! Service was ok, nothing exceptional. We wouldn’t eat here again. The food is not that good. Only giving two stars (rather than one) because the dessert was decent & the drinks were good.

Mitch’s has amazing sushi and the customer service is always great. They have the best sea bass we have ever ate, the balloon cake is also great!

Our first visit to Mitch’s during Restaurant Week was an overall five-star meal. We both had the Halibut and the fish was cooked to perfection; flaky, fresh, delicious. Service was outstanding from our first impression to our last; waiters filled empty water glasses, ice tea glasses, removed dishes, brought food and check effortlessly. The dessert was outstanding as well, a strawberry cake. We will return. Restaurant week menu allowed us to try the restaurant at a very reasonable cost with salad, main and dessert for $39 so excellent value. My arugula salad was tops, dressed just right. We were seated on the main floor and very nice music for entertainment was a plus. The restaurant has an unusual configuration, with stairs to a dining area above. The bar and entertainment are on the main floor.

This place from the moment we walked in until the minute we left we felt like family. We were greeted and sat by Mitch who was incredibly nice. Our server was great ! The food was soooo good. We got king crab legs, sushi, shishito peppers ( my fav) and oysters. All so delicious and this is a must visit!!

Once I got here I remembered I was here for Christmas Eve Dinner 2017. I dined on Alaskan King Crab legs....yummmy.

Tonight, however, I was here enjoying a summer buffet of burger's, taco's, and Sushi.
We used the upstairs loft room which sat all 60 of us.
The wait staff did excellent concierge service and added to the enjoyment of the evening.
I will be back.
