We had the omakase menu. There was a very long wait for the main course. Other than that, the service was good. The seafood dishes and the dessert were excellent. The non seafood courses were not as good.

Restaurant itself is great. We were there, however, on a very rainy evening and the lack of umbrellas to get from the completely uncovered areas of the property to the restaurant, and in and out of hotel was pretty hard to understand. At a restaurant and hotel of that quality, they should not be handing out beach towels to try and keep their customers dry and not have any available umbrellas for people to use.

Overpriced over hyped. Not enough servers. Thanks to the manager who ended up taking care of our table. This is a restaurant named after a Star chef but falls short of the hype and expectations. Give it a miss. It’s at best a hotel restaurant.

Waiter, while knowledgeable, was disinterested at best, even after my direct inquiry about what food and meal choices he recommended. His body language to us with each of our questions was similar to what you might give a dead slug or earthworm on the ground in the early morning, one of casual sympathy and disinterest. My wife and I were left with an extensive and diverse menu with no idea of what might be good to order.

We were surprisingly disappointed by our experience here. Our group of 4 have all been morimoto nyc and expected the Maui spot to be of similar quality. The service felt rushed and inattentive from the hostess stand to dinner. I found the selections of sushi I ordered to be of good quality but they seemed to be prepared in a rush or with no care taken. One bite of toro sushi had so much wasabi rubbed under the fish I felt like my sinuses were exploding. I found similar amounts of wasabi under all pieces and couldn’t finish my dinner. The server didn’t come by the check on us so we left unhappy.

My husband and I stayed at the Andaz (resort where restaurant is located) and wanted a nice meal after a long travel day. We were frankly blown away by the quality of the food and excellent service at Morimoto. We shared a variety of dishes and each one was unique, flavorful and had beautiful presentation. We started with the whitefish carpaccio which came with a healthy portion of fish topped with freshly dressed greens. For dinner I had the watermelon gazpacho which was a very light, but extremely flavorful, meal. The highlight of our visit was my husband's meal, the signature Seafood Topan Yaki. Simply an amazing meal of savory broth with a healthy variety of fresh seafood. We would highly recommend Morimoto for a great meal with excellent service!

We chose to do the Morimoto Omakase - which is their tasting menu. We shared an 'upgraded' Omakase and added some chef choice sushi. The pacing of the courses was lovely and made for a very pleasant leisurely dinner. When eating this way, be prepared to take your time. We saw 4 couple ordering entrees of the menu come and go while we were still enjoying the delights from the kitchen and sushi chefs. Our Waitress, Darcy, was fun and engaging. The front of the house was all knowledgable and pleasant. Food was plated beautifully and flavors did not disappoint. Go for an experience.

My husband and I recently had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant on Maui. It is located at the end of a multi-level pool deck at the Andaz resort in Wailea. We were there after sunset but it should have amazing sunset and water views. The beef carpaccio and the rock shrimp were fantastic appetizers and we also loved the market fish as a main course. The wine list was extensive and varied. Service was excellent and we would recommend this restaurant as one of our top choices on Maui.

we booked at least 2 weeks in advance and requested an outdoor table and confirmed that 2 days before when they called to confirm my reservation. however, when we got there we did not get such a table because they were all taken with no explanation from the hostess even though I asked. my wife's Cosmopolitan was remade 3 times and in the end it was unsatisfactory. Food service took too long.

My wife and I were staying at Andaz Resort and Morimoto is on property, so it made sense to try it. We are not raw fish people, so I can't comment on that type of fare, but the cooked seafood we had was very good and the desserts were great.

Good food. Great ambiance, with the best ocean view and the sunset. Super for anniversaries which is why I was there. Abit on the pricey side I think. But Im sure the location and the fact that its Morimoto had to do alot with that. No disappointments however. The night was perfect. We even had free valet parking.

Not impressed at all.

The dinner started when we were given old and food stained menus which gave us a bad impression from a beginning. The staff were nice but we could tell they were trying to up sell as much as they could. This shouldn’t be happening at a top tier restaurant.

Drinks were good but food was mediocre at best, way too much sauce which over powered delicate ingredients. Atmosphere okay but a layer of dust on otherwise beautiful chandeliers was a sin. Again this shouldn’t be happening at a top tier restaurant.

If you want a fine seafood restaurant with a view I suggest restaurant at hotel Wailea. If you want really good seafood centric Japanese food I suggest 1054Togoshi.

Went to Morimoto upon a friends recommendation and was not disappointed. I had the tasting menu - each course delicious and beautifully presented. Others at the table had the steak, pork chop and fish. The portions were generous without being too much and cooked to perfection. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food preparation which added to our experience. People watching was also good here. It was an evening to remember. Not cheap, so expect to pay for excellence.

The food was consistently bad. Cooked food was overcooked. Sashimi was not very fresh. The restaurant's attempt at creativity failed miserably at taste (though the presentation was nice). The sashimi appetizer came with 5 different pieces but they were cut into small thin squares and stacked together (i.e., 5 different fish stacked together to make 1 bite) with a variety of "special sauces" such as "barbecue sauce". Needless to say, the barbecue sauce with sashimi was not appetizing. The most disappointing dining experience in a long time.

Innovative sushi, sashimi, and seafood in an oceanfront, park like setting. Great service but hang on to your cash as it is expensive for the omikase that we enjoyed. A la carte a lot easier on the wallet, but not as exotic. Definitely a foodie place.
