Great service. Our waitress
Great service. Our waitress was kind and personable, and went the extra mile. I spilled my own wine accidentally and when the waitress found out she got me another free of charge and seemed genuinely sorry that it had happened. The sushi was delicious and arrived quickly as well!

The crab croquettes and dessert platter were to die for.

Always Great for Lunch...
Restaurant Muramoto always does a great job. The food and service are great, and they fit the bill perfectly for a quick, but elegant,lunch in downtown Madison.

Muramoto is one of the best
Muramoto is one of the best restaurants in Madison. The food is presented nicely and always quite tasty. It is inventive Japanese cuisine. My only criticism is with the desserts, which can be a bit odd.

Sat night review
As usual we and our guests enjoyed Muramoto. Just a really nice and very versatile menu which was suitable as our guests had different appetites(some more and some less).
Seemed quite loud at first, but we just amped up the conversation.
Really enjoyed the dessert sampler.

I ate here for my birthday and the food was fantastic! My friend was a little disappointed that they didn't do anything special for birthdays other than put candles on a dessert that you buy, but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves sushi or looking to try it for the first time!

I consider Restaurant Muramoto
I consider Restaurant Muramoto to be one of the best restaurants in Madison and it is one of my favourites.I have enjoyed every meal to me it looks like there is alot of care given to each dish - it's presentation , consistency , and quality . I like the ambience. It is the number one place I take guests and family from out of town , as well as friends from in town , They are always impressed. And I am always impressed too , lol!!

Always an excellent choice, Muramoto outdid itself with the coconut shrimp entree. Truly enjoyable, with prompt service.

Top Choice Madison Restaurant.
Restaurant Muramoto is my favorite Madison restaurant, and every time I go there I'm reminded of why. Even though I live in Washington, DC now, I always make sure to get here when I am in town. The sushi is amazing, and there are a lot of unique specialty rolls. You can tell the fish is very fresh, and the hot dishes are cooked perfectly. My companions had the scallop dish and the black cod dish, and both were lovely. It's so hard to find a restaurant that doesn't overcook the scallops! Even my dad enjoyed the food here, and he is a meat and potatoes guy. They have a great specialty drink menu, too, although I always get the Bentzi's Arielle, which is named after my late graduate school adviser and his wife. Can't go wrong here!

Sushi Well Done
The food was very fresh with excellent presentation. The waitress did a great job of explaining the local favorites and newer creations. If you are hungry, I would suggest the "All-U-Can Eat Dinner Special as it would be a more cost effective approach than a series of single orders.

My companion and I took my daughter to dinner as a graduation celebration meal (we are all fond of Japanese fare) and this restaurant was unexpectedly available on the Square. Great presentation for all of the rolls. The duck sushi roll was exquisite (we ordered a second serving); other options were delicious and complemented each other. The drinks were very well done, without being overwhelming in alcohol. We especially appreciated the naming of the drinks, and the visit by the bartender to share stories. I do hope to get back here soon--unexpectedly intimate, even with large windows showing passersby. I hope to get back for the Sunday-Tuesday sushi special.

Will Return Soon!
I went there with my fiance before a show at the overture it was perfect very quick amazing food and service will return very soon .

The food was great, the hanger steak was initially burned but they replaced it easily and the manager did not charge me for it. Drinks and food here are always delicious and filling.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My partner and I went here on a Wednesday date night. We were seated promptly and the waiter was friendly and helpful. They have a wide variety of rolls with a mix of traditional Japanese, American favorites and eclectic combinations The food came out quickly and was wonderfully presented. All and all a lovely night.

Perfect introduction to Japanese
There are so many phenomenal non-seafood sashimi, it's a good choice for someone new to Japanese dining and culture. Sashimi: Kobe beef (pricey), fried pork belly (reasonable). Also try the sushi roll topped with duck. And of course they have all the old standbys too. Service a bit slow - my food was waiting awhile for the waiter to pick it up, every single round.

a perfect intimate birthday dinner
Went with my boyfriend who had birthday. we were feeling a little adventurous and got bite sized appetizers, the crab croquettes and the chef's selection for the sushi rolls. All were amazing and delightful. Presentation was really good, ingredients are fresh (one of the sushi include raw tuna). The bite sized kobe tartare was very savory. For dessert we had dessert sampler with some items not on regular menu so that the chef could show off what they could do and we were impressed. We particularly love the chocolate beignets for dessert. Our server was very knowledgeable, polite but very helpful.

Always leave satisfied. Yes you can get fresh Sushi in MSN and its affordable. We frequent it for its all you can eat Sushi. But went the other night even though it wasn't all you can eat. Still left satisfied and was a good value. They also have a Sushi Bar in Hilldale Mall which is great as well.

Great Place to Eat
The staff was very professional and fun. The food and cocktails were excellent.

Very good food. Food low coming out
It was very good. The service was a little bit slow. We went on a Sunday night for the all you can eat Sushi so we should have expected it. Overall a good dining experience, good quality food.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was a bit disappointed at first. The corned beef tongue was crazy tough and I couldn't bite through it for minutes. The rabbit terrine was okay, but the Kobe tartare was good. And then after that things picked up. Sushi small plate, Salmon cold plate, various nigiri, and Bumblebee roll were all good. And then the Satsuma beignets were really good, So by the end I was in a good mood.

Date Night Success
We go out for date night every week, usually to a new restaurant each week. While we have done Restaurant Muramoto for all-you-can-eat sushi, this was our first time eating off their main dinner menu. We order four different "bites," all of which were absolutely amazing. The crab bite was rich and heavenly, while the pork belly bun was perfectly balanced. We also tried the rabbit and kobe tartar. We then ordered the duck roll, which is always amazing as the duck and mango form a perfect marriage. Finally, we got the dessert platter to conclude the meal. It was the perfect amount of food and a reasonable price considering the quality of the food used. The service, like the food, was also great. We will definitely go back again.

Great Sushi and Sashimi
The menu here is a little different than the Hilldale location, and for me personally, I like it a little better. The restaurant is also a larger in size and you aren't so crowded as you are at the Hilldale location. We had great service and enjoyed the sushi and sashimi very much!

Had a nice evening, good food.
Our waiter recommended the crab croquettes - great appetizer. We also ordered the Asian Slaw - Highly recommend it! The sushi was fresh, neatly prepared, but not mindblowing. All things considered, a very nice dinner, with no complaints.

Somerhing for everyone.
The food here is delicious. High quality sushi for those who appreciate that, but a variety of. Cooked dishes that appeal to the more timid diner; makes this a wonderful evening for a small group with mixed pallets. Very attentive friendly servers. Charming ambiance. Plenty of enthusiastic patrons, but not rowdy or overly loud. The menu is loaded with small dishes that make for sharing. Everyone can have their top choices while also sampling new things.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We choose to have the "chef choose 3" sushi and it was amazing. It was fun not knowing what we would get and we loved each item that was made for us. Everything was fresh and tasty. We did have the edamame that they serve cold, but some of it was still frozen. I would have preferred my edamame steamed warm vs cold. Our server was great, she answered any questions we had and provided exceptional service.

This restaurant serves some
This restaurant serves some of the best sushi type dishes around. Their wine isn't outstanding, but it is good (my friends call me a wine snob). Nice casual tempo to the meal

Fabulous find in downtown
Fabulous find in downtown Madison. Went here on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. The sushi was fresh and inventive. The pork belly appetizer was one of the best I have ever had. Definitely a must for anyone visiting Madison

More spacious than it's previous
More spacious than it's previous address, the ambiance is, sadly, not as cozy. However, the food and the service were outstanding.
We will return.

A very interesting selection of traditional southern comfort food with an Asian twist. Server had an affected air. Table in the front was nice, but looked into waiting room/coat room through glass walls.

This is our go to spot for Sushi. Always great service and the food is delicious, every time!
