Beautiful inner garden and decor overall was notably classic Japanese. Happy hour is a great value big would stick to the sashimi plates. Service was attentive, thoughtful, and professional.

Everything was great, with two exceptions. We encountered a small difficulty when another person decided to join us; the online reservation system refused to accept the change, without explanation. No one answered a couple of calls, so I finally left a voice mail and we got a call back from someone who took care of the reservation change. The much bigger problem was that our table was in a large open room with a kitchen counter and so high a noise level that we could hardly think, much less converse. This was way, way, way beyond "energetic." It literally hurt. The restaurant was jammed, so changing rooms seemed out of the question. My wife and I have been to Momiji a number of times in the past, but we had never before been seated in that room; I hope we never are again.

A dinner experience that always impresses. We loved the food/drinks (fresh sushi rolls, lychee martinis, etc.) ambiance (serene garden) and service (Alex was amazing, quick and easy to talk to). A friend is already begging to return!

I’ve been coming here for awhile as I live in the neighborhood and have always loved the food and service. The evening we went there was s a new bartender I’ve never seen. Right off the bat, he was very off putting and was a negative experience for us. Not friendly, not attentive, gave attitude. It was a hassle to get his attention and he seemed immune to giving a positive encounter, not to mention a semblance of a smile. The whole energy was bad. I’ve worked restaurant/hospitality/ customer service for almost two decades and am not prone to write critiques but this definitely deserved it. We dined Sunday, July 28th at the bar.

I took a trip to Seattle (from California) recently and this was the best dinner I had while out there! It's a beautiful place, service was awesome, and the food was incredible. I definitely recommend eating here and I'll be coming back on my next visit to Seattle.

Overall food was good and quality was superb. Ordered two speciality rolls (one vegetarian/one non-vegetarian), gyoza, ginger chicken, an avocado cucumber roll, and a cocktail. All delicious. Only complaint is that it seems to be marginally more expensive than you would expect.

The grill fish cheeks and miso black cod were outstanding. Only minor issue is that the plates came out too fast.

The hostesses were somewhat rude when my party of 2 arrived 15 minutes late after having called 5-10 minutes before our reservation time to say we were behind schedule. No one answered the phone when we called so we didn't leave a message, and instead introduced ourselves with apologies & mentioned we had called but couldn't reach anybody. The hostesses were quite busy, and understandably, were a little bit short with us off the bat because they were dealing with so many people (Not a problem at all! Totally understand & have been a hostess myself). One gave us quite a bit of attitude when we introduced ourselves and asked if they still had room for us, which was frustrating as I had gone out of my way to be generous and understanding and put it on the table that we were late & I understand how inconvenient that can be. We ended up having to wait a short amount of time (Again, not a problem at all! To be expected), and had a wonderful meal. It just wasn't a great first impression.

The food was fantastic and on par with the price, however, the service was lacking. The staff was very nice but they only came by our table to take the order, drop food, and clean up. There was no check up half way through and not even an offer to purchase more. The restaurant wasn’t very busy so I’m not sure why this was the case. I would go back for the food and ambiance.

Was seated right away so we were able to get a few items on happy hour. Birthday dinner with three rolls and a round of drinks was around $60! Great price for delicious food (and whiskey :))

The food was excellent, as always. The one complaint was we were in a room with a party with three children running around and being loud, and after speaking with the staff no one addressed it with them.

We have loved Momiji for years but the service and food quality has gone down. And it’s too noisy. Hard to talk to the people at your table.

The food was ok. There were some items that frankly just did not go together (tofu salad? With seaweed?) I think they need to rethink some of the texture combinations a bit. However, the restaurant was beautiful inside and the vibe was very zen. Also, our server ‘Alex’ was phenomenal! Very kind and patient, very knowledgeable and waited on us with finesse. He made the evening great.
