There is a small outdoor area which is a nice option. The food is excellent and reasonably priced for what you get.

We went here last night for a belated birthday gift. What a great intimate, interactive and personal experience from the chef. Every course was fantastic - it was just the meal I was looking for on our trip! 100% worth it. My only feedback: if customers aren't sitting at the bar being able to watch the chef perform his magic, turn th ... read more

Our last night out (8/31/2021) before heading home. What an amazing dinner!! We're from the SF/Bay Area and have been fortunate to eat some great food. This restaurant was some of the best food and best experience we've had. If you don't like fish (and raw fish), this is not for you. Every bite was a treat. The courses don't look ver ... read more

We really enjoyed this creative, flavorful, and personal 8 course meal prepared by chef Louis. Off the beaten path, on the airport side of town, this place was full of locals. Warmly and tastefully decorated, live guitar music completed the mellow, friendly, homey atmosphere. The chef and his sous greeted and chatted with every table ... read more

GO here and nowhere else. Serious eats. Omakase only. As far as I know there is no place in Hilo serving this level of food.

This was an excellent find. We got there when they opened and were able to get in with no reservations. The daily specials are worth checking out.

Popular place. Indoor & Outdoor seating available. Good service even though they were very busy. Separate takeout window to pick up your order. Tempura was very good, as was the udon soup. Sukiyaki wasn’t that good.

Amazing food! Chef Louis is definitely a Michelin star worthy chef! It books up fast so book a few weeks in advance. I'm a wine drinker, butbI must say his sake selection is superb!!! Will definitely be back... can't wait to see what's new since his menu changes frequently.

What an amazing meal, and such a personal experience. Each dish really highlighted the season.

What a hidden treasure in Hilo! The Chef is a local boy with worldwide experience as a professional chef on an international cruise line. Flavors of Spain, France, Germany, Japan, and Hilo Fusion are delightful. This was a super fun date night and highly recommended for any special occasion.

We found Izakaya Miyo on Yelp when we did a quick search to find a place to eat before we head to the airport.

We tried their special plated menu side and it was unbelievable!!! The chef knocked it out of the park with his 7 course, small plated menu. Prepared in front of you it was an experience like no other. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the best dining experience in Hilo!

Our friend recommended we eat here when we took a day trip to Hilo. The sunny Kona weather followed us to Hilo that day.

I'm so glad to have found this experience because it was one of the major highlights of my trip! Chef Louis had such a unique menu with such an eclectic combination of flavors that just worked - I dislike asparagus but one of the courses was an asparagus salad that converted me and made me finally see it's textural and flavor appeal.
