It was a nice reasonably fancy place, and though the portions were fairly small they were very tasty. After having several people give glowing recommendations, booking the reservation a week in advance, and enjoying some of the food myself I've gained an appreciation for it.

Momiji certainly delivered on its reputation on the food front. Every dish we had was excellent both in presentation and taste. On this occasion (and as this was our first visit) service was lacking. After a short wait past the reservation time to be seated it took 10-15 mins to see a waitress at all and 30+ mins after that for our first course to arrive. Drinks hadn’t shown up by then (>50 mins after sitting down). However - other than a miss on the wasabi (absent from the sashimi platter) the rest of the meal went well - food was top notch and service better.

Always love coming to Momiji! The quality of the fish is top notch and they take care into what they create. Plus the drinks are great and the staff is wonderful. The restaurant environment is nice and relaxing but not so fancy it's intimidating or trying too hard. I could eat their sashimi all day long. Plus, this last visit was my birthday and they do free birthday desserts :)

It was awesome, I took my friend out to dinner for her birthday on Valentine’s Day so I got 2 birds with one stone on that one. We loved the recommendation that the waitress made for the Sushi. It was an awesome experience because this was the first time I’ve ever taken a girl out to dinner and I got the table in the back like I’d requested. It was extravagant

As always, Momijis food was excellent. The sashimi was fresh and the eel was exceptionally good. There is so much variety in their small plate selection, I recommend ordering some of those and staying away from the rolls.

Went here for a birthday outing. It appears to be a small bar upon walking in but once you enter the dining area there’s a decent amount of space. Food was great, service wasn’t anything to write home about, the atmosphere was nice-low lighting and a pretty Japanese garden in the center. Small bowl of edamame was placed immediately on the table when we were seated. Only reason why I won’t be returning is because the food safety rating was just “OKAY”. I wouldn’t typically mind but if I’m eating raw fish I’d rather dine at an “Excellent” or “Very Good”

With all the great seafood and sushi in Seattle, Momiji is our very favorite. The fish is always top shelf fresh, presented well and first class service. They also have some innovative dishes for the adventurous, a very good wine menu and a good assortment of beers.

If you love a mouth full of mayonnaise and mediocre, overpriced fish, this place will be your jam.

Decent service couldn’t make up for the disservice this meal did sushi.

Most of my food was great, but the Four Kings roll was way too heavy on the cilantro. I could barely eat half of it. Cilantro is supposed to be a garnish, not the main vegetable in a dish. Also, it was rather noisy for a Monday evening and I had trouble hearing my friends.

The restaurant is nice and stylish but food quality is awful. The sushi is not real sushi. Vinegar rice tastes not right and fish cutting is too thick. We won’t go back there.

We rated Momiji a 5-star the first time we went--great value for the food at happy hour. This time, it was a 3-star. The sashimi and the rest of the happy hour food were only so-so. There seemed to be only one waitress for the entire back half of the restaurant, so service was slow.

A "cool" sushi spot in Capitol Hill. Reasonable prices, cool ambiance, and solid food. We ordered two rolls for two people and left satisfied. Happy Hour was OK, but extensive main menu and reasonable prices given the quality of the food, location, and decor.

So attentive - was wished a happy birthday by the host and by our server (indicated it was a birthday on opentable). Happened to be happy hour and they had awesome deals. Then, just as we were talking about ordering some Mochi for dessert, the server brought one out for free with a candle for my mom’s birthday. Always had a good experience here, but this was exceptional.

I went there for my son's birthday with my wife and daughter. The restaurant is very spacious and clean. Services were excellent and food come in reasonable fast. We ordered so many items (4pm-6pm) from the Happy Hour Menu and they were very good although I had better Japanese food somewhere. But the price is much lower than most others around Seattle/Bellevue area, maybe 20-30%. Very satisfy and will sure dine in again. Highly Recommend! AAA+++
